The American people managed to rid themselves of Donald Trump’s toxic presence inside the White House this past election, but we have yet to excise him from our political landscape. As demonstrated by his recent speech at CPAC and the fanatical devotion his supporters still espouse, the worst president in American history remains a potent force within the Republican Party. Regardless of whether or not he pursues the nomination in 2024, he will be a problem we have to grapple with until his bloated old body finally gives out on him.
Recognizing this reality, Republican officials are remaining in lockstep with Trump and his usual surrogates continue to heap fawning praise on him. Dan Scavino, Trump’s former White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communication, shared a ludicrous, aggrandizing black and white video about the disgraced ex-president today.
The video starts with a series of self-serious photographs of Trump as a woman tells us in voiceover that there’s a “certain type of person who doesn’t take no for an answer,” an unfortunate choice of words that immediately evokes the numerous accusations of rape and sexual misconduct that have been leveled at the former reality show host over the years.
The voice goes on to praise Trump as some “trailblazing” hero who shattered the “status quo,” a frankly hilarious characterization of a man who shoveled more wealth to the super-rich and stuffed the judiciary with reactionary lunatics. Equally absurd, the voiceover champions Trump—the man who rose to power on a wave of racism—for “braving hatred.”
More ludicrous still, the video tells us that Trump “never got a seat at the table” and so he “can’t sit and behave.” Since birth Trump has had a seat at the table of privilege. He inherited massive ill-gotten wealth from his father and spent his life ripping people off, stealing, declaring bankruptcy when his subpar business skills painted him into a corner, and playing the victim.
Watching this video gives you a glimpse into the truly delusional way his followers view him and in that sense it is deeply terrifying.
