I suspect that this is correct. Trump is going down because he has made enemies of not only the Democrats but also of the establishment Republicans. Call them RINOs or whatever you want, but the fact remains that Mitch McConnell is the most powerful Republican in government today, and he would love to see Trump get taken down. So would a lot of other Republicans. They defended him from impeachment, but now that he's out of office he is nothing but trouble to them. They may not move against him publicly, but they will pull strings behind the scenes to help Democrats take him down. He is now more of a liability than an asset to them.
:rolleyes: Oh, he certainly did all that. He was starting off on the wrong foot to begin with; as he was stepping out of his lane. You have to understand, I remember quite well when he was the darling of the New York establishment. I remember Oprah gushing about how he was needed as President.
All of that ended when he looked like he was really seriously doing it.

This was a bad thing for the establishment because he was largely an unknown quantity...Liberal New York Republican underpinnings for sure but he was taking a more populist stance than normal, and he had too much money to bribe. They did their best to take him down with the moral finger wagging but Donny was a damn Mormon compared to Slick Willy...The fact he was a playboy was always known and the establishment had made a great deal of inroads into convincing people these things don't matter...And they still can't put him on the Island or the Plane.

If he had just...Well, I could write a list.

I admit that I had hopes for him...He was being given a chance to be more than what he is. Sometimes men are given this chance and either they rise to their better natures, or they allow their pride to let them assume themselves to be entitled the the gift they have been given.

Donny always was a child of entitlement. :unsure:

There's more to that though. Remember that 20 years ago Trump was publicly a member of the Reform Party. He was pro-choice, in favor of some gun control legislation, supportive of taking action on climate change, and he was saying things like "The Republican Party is just too crazy rightwing." He said that in the wake of the Republican impeachment attempt on Clinton, which he was very against. He publicly defended Clinton and slandered his accusers. It wasn't until Obama got elected that he became a "birther" and went off the rails. From there, he went on to put the "crazy rightwing" into the Republican Party like no one else ever did. And it's at this point that I am forced to repeat myself: With Trump, virtually every accusation is a confession.

No argument from me. :)

I forgot to mention one other thing: Back in the 2000s, Trump was also saying things like, "The economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans." Here's a link to that clip:


And below is the clip of Trump calling the Republican Party "crazy" back in 1999. I have to ask, what was the Republican Party doing back in the late 1990s that Trump thought was crazy, other than trying to impeach Clinton? I'm assuming it was the pro-choice, climate, and gun control issues that he supported around that time. Not sure what else that was about.
