When I first heard it, I was stunned. Now I’m shocked the media hasn’t noted something Trump revealed near the end of his acceptance speech.
He apparently thinks he has an option to throw in the towel if the presidency proves too tough for him. He drops the clue at 15:50…
Here’s the transcript…
“I look very much forward to being your president, and hopefully, at the end of two years or three years or four years, or maybe even eight years, you will say, so many of you worked so hard for us, but you will say that, you will say that that was something that you were really very proud to do.”
His muddled use of pronouns renders the thought nonsensical, but why those time frames? Why wouldn’t a such a relentless braggart say, “After my first hundred days,” or, “After my first year in office”?
It seems clear to me that he’s implying he may consider the job a fait accompli by mid-term. We can only hope.
(Don’t you love how his son Barron, in white tie to Trump’s left, can’t conceal utter boredom throughout the whole speech? Poor kid’s life is about to be thrown into chaos, and they’re forcing him to stay up all night and watch Daddy give his 1,987,999th speech.)
Trump’s ties to Russia throughout his campaign are coming to light, thanks to the Russians themselves.
And as Trump’s unseemly associations continue to be laid barer than Melania at a photo shoot, by Inauguration Day his administration should be ass-deep in alligators in an Oval Office swamp of his making. Trump will soon learn that while a candidate may successfully hide some of his dirt (think income taxes, immigration records), the White House is a glass house.
