Good Day World!
It's a case of putting the horse before the cart. Counting your eggs before they're hatched. Celebrating before the race is finished.
The day Trump took the oath of office he filed to run for the presidency in 2020. In case you're wondering, no other president in our history had that much gall and ego.
Not to mention that the chances of completing his first full term without getting impeached are iffy. Oddsmakers have it at about 10/11.
When I first found out about Donny Little-Hands bid for a second term I was so surprised that I didn't know what to make of it.
That's changed however. I figured out why he did that. Yes, only I have the answer! Snark...snark.
After watching his first campaign rally in Florida last week everything became clear. The Lord of Narcissists need a group hug from his core because things have been rough for him thus far.
He knew he could count on his rabid followers for a good ego stroking.
It hasn't been easy for Chump finding out that he can't just bully his way through things like he did with his business empire.
In the first place everyone keeps calling him a liar. Then there's all those pesky laws based upon the Constitution. Frustration at not successfully pulling off an immigrant ban only made it worse.
So Dump called the mainstream news fake and created his own reality. He had a rally in Florida.
Adoring followers lined up in the thousands to hear him revile the nation's free press and talk about his "yuge" election victory. Despite the fact that it was a month ago.
None of them were concerned about his actions in his first 30 days. As a matter of fact they all thought he was doing great.
I watched reporters talking to people in line to see Lump, and had to smack my forehead repeatedly! It was like listening to starry-eyed cult followers.
Reality has no part in their daily existence. They believe that only Rump tells them the truth and the rest of the world is lying.
I predict that every few weeks, or so, Chump will hold a rally when reality closes in on him and he feels it's pressure.
Look for a lot of rallies in the future.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
