Of course he never wanted to win. He never planned on winning. His goal was to throw so much shiat at Hillary that her presidency would be crippled with fake scandals and allegations.

From there he'd get his Russia pay (Putin wants America destabilized, nothing more) and be able to start his Trump News Network with alt-right news alt-the time.

His worst mistake was running. His worst nightmare is winning.

He never wanted to win and the American public has been losing ever since.

Sounds like they're going to have to completely redo the presidential bedroom after he leaves.

Everybody in his rich-guy social circle knew about his wide-ranging ignorance. Early in the campaign, Sam Nunberg was sent to explain the Constitution to the candidate. "I got as far as the Fourth Amendment," Nunberg recalled, "before his finger is pulling down on his lip and his eyes are rolling back in his head."

Jesus F*cking Christ.

I can't find it, but there is a picture from election night, right after the results are all in, that shows him looking absolutely mortified he's won. Everyone around him looks elated, but he is just sitting there with an "oh fark" look on his face

Anyone paying attention knew this all along.
The problem is half of our country can't be asked to pay a rat's fart of attention to anything that's not happening directly in front of them.

So what's the source for this?

Because I understand confirmation bias, and reading this, for me, is like an overdose of confirmation bias.

I so want it to be true, but I can't quite bring myself to believe it (or anything political) anymore.

Yup, somebody called the Oval Office the "crown jewel of federal penal system" Trump has learned how accurate that is.
 
2018-01-03 01:28:31 PM  
No shiat. He wanted to lose and spend his last few years ranting about how the election was 'rigged' by Hillary on his very own news network.

Unfortunately, Putin and/or the GOP didn't plan on losing, and tipped the scales in his favor. And now we're here.

The only problem with this theory is the obvious one:  if he didn't want to be President then, why does he want to be President now?  It's not like the job is getting any easier or less stressful.  And he'd make a ton of money off of rubes if he resigned and blamed "the deep state" or "Killary" or some other nonsense for making his job impossible.

Bottom line is, as President Trump is hated by the people he wants to impress, and his base is comprised of the poor, uneducated folks he's looked down on his entire life.  As former President, he can make money off those poor, uneducated folks--and really, making money off of the easily-scammed is the only thing he's ever shown a real passion for doing--and the people he wants to impress will find someone else to hate.  But he's showing no interest in becoming a former President.  So maybe he does want to be the leader after all.

That "news article" reads like fan fiction.

For example:  did Murdock REALLY say "what a f*cking idiot"?  And to whom?  And who else heard it?  Was that really reported to someone?  Or are we just speculation as to what went on behind the scenes?

He didn't want to be President. But he's too narcissistic to actually quit, even if he DID blame it on everyone else.

Everyone gets that look. The job ages people. It's like Moses coming down the mountain after having stood in the presence of God. Each year as President is like 4 in normal years.

scottydoesntknow: (Putin wants America destabilized, nothing more)


NATO can no longer trust the United States.

The United States ceded economic influence in South East Asia and Central/South America to China.

The United States has lost credibility and reliability for future international negotiations for several decades (whose gonna trust a President the US will keep its word?).

ad infinitum.

He got what he wanted.

It's not obvious to you?
His ego won't let him, neither will his handlers.

It's a lot more fun to fleece the rubes than it is to actually have to make decisions. I see that constantly in my work as a consultant. I can tell who is farking trouble right off the bat, they are the people in the pissing contest over some technological change that don't want to take responsibility. There are plenty of managers, and consultants, who do not actually want their way to win they just want to be on record the other option is bad.

From there you fleece the rubes. Trump expected to lose. Losing would have given him the opportunity to biatch about voter fraud and whatnot, and fleece the rubes. He could fleece them with the Trump Truth News Network. He could fleece them with books touting conspiracy theories. He could fleece them into donating money for worthless Trump PACs where his family gets paid well. (I should start a "conservative" PAC and fleece a bunch of morons, unfortunately I'm too ethical) Selling "Trump should've won" merchandise like hats, and keep selling that MAGA stuff too.

Winning was the best/worst thing to happen to him. He's got a platform, not the one he wanted, to fleece the rubes. Unfortunately his campaign was staffed by morons who couldn't keep their mouths shut, and now his entire financial empire is under scrutiny which is probably giving him ulcers.

Don't buy the premise of this article at all. No doubt many in Trump's circle who weren't in the know thought Trump couldn't win. Others knew he would win because he knew the Russians would corrupt the balloting in key precincts in key states.

Ailes had a suggestion: John Boehner, who had stepped down as Speaker of the House only a year earlier.

"Who's that?" asked Trump.
