For the moment, I’m wrong. Even though all the conditions have been established for a Hunter Biden “deep fake” to pop out of that dubious laptop, it hasn’t happened yet. And, yet, today is the 4 year anniversary of the Second Comey Letter. As such, it seems it’s a now-or-never kind of situation.
It would make sense for such a deep fake to mysteriously appear in the far Right social media echo chamber right about NOW. Or it will be released by Rudy via social media. Or, hell, it could even be Trump himself. Trump is a deranged moron with an existential fear of being prosecuted should he leave office. So, really, anything could happen between now and election day.
I will be the first to admit that I was wrong if we come to election day and no deep fake has come out. In my defense, I have repeatedly said that I come up with such dark scenarios as a defense mechanism. It’s not like I have any credibility to squander, as well.
But it just made sense to me that all the dark predictions we’ve been hearing about weaponized deep fakes would happen in 2020 because, well, a lot of bad actors on the global scene desperately want Trump to stay in office. And he’s more than willing to accept such help.
Or, put another way, autocrats never lose. Trump is a lazy, incompetent autocrat, but he’s still a fucking autocrat.
