It sounds like these have only been tested twice and live-dropped once.

An opportunity was missed.

These morons covering Trump never learned their lesson. They will breathlessly repeat every word he says, bypassing the entire purpose of getting his stupid ass kicked off Twitter. He will run again in 2024, and if he wins, the media will go DERP HOW DID THIS HAPPEN DERP?

TFG is just singing the same tune.
Broken record.
No one will be taking anything he says seriously when he starts campaigning.
If he even makes it through '22 without being charged with something and fleeing the country with his family.

Can't blame it on the media, it will either be because the (D)s decide to run the absolute worst candidate or B.) the non-MAGA idiots are incapable of learning a lesson and will absolutely deserve what is to come.

Trump's lesson's from 2020:

1. Get friendly legislatures to give themselves the power to overturn the vote.
2. Get friendly legislatures and election officials elected in 2022.
3. Don't get blown out in 2024 by such a margin you can't claim fraud and get your friends to overturn the election.

Anybody who says that the freakshow was fading into obsolescence didn't watch much Bravo, TLC, MTV, VH1, or Fox in the in 2010s.

Think Covid is no big deal?
Go watch Trump's last rally.

This man is the recipient of the best post-acute Covid care in the world.  He was never the sharpest tool in the shed, not even when he was the most used, but the decline is still frightening.

Best care in the world.  What do you got?

Oh, and I forgot A&E which had Duck Dynasty from 2012-2017.

There was Octomom and the way the media railroaded (and we consumed) Britney Spears' meltdown.

Don't tell me that the freakshow aspect has been waning for the past 50 years, Dumbmitter.

That has to be satire.  He's got stuff clipped to the webbing, that he in turn then puts another thing inside that itself has a clip.  Yo dawg, we heard you liked tactical items so we put some tactical items inside your tactical items on your tactical vest.

Unrelated: I wonder what's going to happen when Trump inevitably becomes physically unable to do this anymore.  Alive, but wheelchair bound or something.  Are they going to wheel him out on a cart like some sort of fat hannibal lecter?  Golf cart straight to the podium?  If he weren't so dangerous, I'd kind of want to see how far he forced them to take the spectacle.  I can't imagine he's going to gain a following, so his rallies aren't going to get bigger.  Is he going to be like a 1970s arena band that just doesn't give it up and 40 years later is playing local college student event nights like they're Wembly?
