The crypto-fascist political movement that once referred to itself as “The Trump Train” and which could more accurately be described as a gravy train for every kleptocratic goon in the president’s orbit will finally be derailed once and for all this Wednesday, as President-elect Joe Biden is sworn in after trouncing our disastrous incumbent by a commanding electoral margin.
President Trump leaves office in utter disgrace with financial ruin looming as former allies and enablers abandon him in the wake of the insurrection he incited at the Capitol earlier this month. Due to that shocking betrayal of his oath, Trump now finds himself stained with the distinction of being the only president in American history to be impeached twice.
The House voted to impeach him last week and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) intends to send the case to the Senate for this week for a trial. Whether enough Republicans willer must the courage to vote against the leader of their party remains to be seen, but the mere fact that Trump has reached this point will haunt him for the rest of his life and define his reviled place in the history books.
Deprived of his Twitter after receiving a lifetime ban, the president has been uncharacteristically quiet in these final days, choosing instead to release sporadic, subdued videos. Meanwhile, First Son Donald Trump Jr. still has access to social media and has been conducting himself in exactly the sort of deranged, possibly-substance-exacerbated manner we’ve come to expect from him.
Three days ago, Trump Jr. posted a video to his Facebook which has since racked up over 120,000 positive reactions and tens of thousands of comments. Squinting strangely and looking a little worse for the wear, Don Jr. ranted about Speaker Pelosi impeaching his father and The Washington Post, claiming that the latter is a purveyor of “commie propaganda” that never gives his father fair coverage.
The First Son feigned surprise that The Post covered the story that the FBI had been investigating individuals planning the Capitol attack at least a week before the actual insurrection.
“Huh. Interesting. If the events were planned for one week prior how is that Donald Trump could have incited violence that day? How could he be impeached for inciting violence that was planned?” mused Trump Jr., demonstrating all of the intellectual sophistication of a particularly dense child. The answer to his rhetorical question is obvious: MAGA maniacs may have prepared to storm the Capitol in advance, but that doesn’t absolve President Trump of the blame for actively urging them on once the crowd arrived. They planned. He encouraged.
After making his inane point, Trump Jr. went on to ramble for several minutes, repeating himself and unconvincingly arguing for his father’s innocence. Characteristically, he failed to make a single coherent point and just resorted to the same kind of ludicrous misinformation that he has always peddled in.
It has long been clear that Jr. has no identity or personality outside his attachment to his father, so we can reasonably expect him to unravel even further as his soon-to-be-ex-president Trump continues his freefall into ignominy.
