The thing about Trump is there are some issues where you don’t know what the fuck is going on. Take his taxes, for instance. Is it an ego thing or is there something actually there that might hurt him politically? And, now, we have the same situation with the Top Secret documents that Trump spirited away from the White House when he left office.
For the moment, they are both the nuclear codes and just random things classified for no real reason. But, for whatever reason, Trump is willing to burn the country down rather than admit defeat on the subject.
Trump’s supporters have already sprinted towards the idea that the FBI has “planted” evidence at Mar-a-Lago to use against Trump. If that’s not a tell, I don’t know what is. AND, what’s more, they have so far refused to release the search warrant. Another tell.
But it’s one of those things where we won’t know until we know. And because of the Fuhrer Principle of MAGA, there’s an even chance that either the lulz Trump literally being treasonous or they spin on a dime and turn their devotion to someone like Ron DeSantis who does exactly the same thing Trump would do, only faster and more adept.
As I keep saying, we’re fucked. I’m too poor to leave the country, so I fully expect to be shot dead by a weaponized ICE at some point after around 2025. Don’t quite know what I’m going to do about that situation. Or we have a civil war and I have to flee to a Blue State.
