I don’t think this is going to be the killing blow that everyone thinks it is. I’ve known guys like Trump (smaller scale obviously). His ego will be bruised but he’ll actually get off on figuring out a way to get around it and make himself look like the persecuted victim. He’ll amp up his rhetoric and encourage his base to become even more violent and unhinged over this. We haven’t heard the last of the mighty Cheeto. It wouldn’t surprise me in the least if he nominates himself as the GOP candidate, creates a new party, or just sets himself up as a “kingmaker” who tries to control policy through his candidates – as long as he doesn’t have to spend a dime of his own money to do it anyway. Trump’s lasting legacy will be a division within this country so deep it will take decades to heal the rift even after his death. He made it socially acceptable to be a horrible person and we don’t have the cohesion as a nation to undo that. We’re too angry, too divided, and the moderates are too tired and disheartened to effectively rally.
