It is like Adolf Hitler once saying that the Protocols of Zion must undoubtedly be truth, for the German press would not say it was not true if there weren’t actually something to it. Part of it is so that people like Trump and Hitler will always be believed by their followers. They seek to make themselves the sole standard for what is right and true in the minds of their cult devotees. There is nothing in the Constitution that prohibits convicted felons from running for office, nor does any such prohibition exist at the state level. Felons only can’t vote, but they can still run for office. However, the only way President Trump would be unable to run for office is if Congress invoked the Fourteenth Amendment, and the DoJ has no authority to demand them to do so.
Hillary Clinton’s reputation was tarnished by years of vilification by the conservative media, and they couldn’t see themselves voting for her – ever Donald Trump was a blank slate, with no prior political experience, a reputation for being a businessman, and some people were able to see him any way they wanted Trump’s popularism hit the hot buttons for a lot of people that felt that politicians in the past didn’t understand (e.g., fears that immigrants were stealing jobs) A lot of Americans felt let down by “politics as usual” – promises made to get their vote, and quickly forgotten once they were in Washington, DC
Four years of Trump left the country riven by internal differences – recalling the deeply held suspicions that ultimately led to the Civil War and much of the upheaval in the Civil Rights era Trump’s mendacity was hard to accept and overlook, not to mention the persistent attempts to line his own pockets by spending the equivalent of a year at his golf courses, and making the Secret Service pay to stay and bill the taxpayers
January 6, 2021, where Trump violated the Oath of Office to uphold the Constitution by starting an autogolpe and attempting to turn the US into a third-world autocracy (In all fairness, points 4 and 5 happened after the election, but do have a way of effecting how people view Trump as a potential candidate for 2024.
Historically, there has been only ONE president that ran for President and won two non-consecutive terms – while it is possible that Trump could pull off the same trick, it appears unlikely. Trump’s popularity – underwater the entire time he was in Office, is now hovering around 44% among registered voters. In fact, it has dropped consistently since he left office a year and a half ago. So, yes, I’d vote for Ms. Ocasio-Cortez over Donald Trump – she’d not be my first choice in all probability, I also suspect that she is too polarizing to win the primary vote – but stranger things have happened. There is absolutely nothing that the Traitorous Mister Trump has ever said that I agree with. Sometimes he says things that sound like something that I might agree with, but that’s pure coincidence, and he usually contradicts himself shortly thereafter. Trump’s opinions on any topic are just so much bullshit. As for “getting to the bottom of 9/11,” it’s far from a mystery with regard to who the highjackers were and what their motivation was for striking America, although some people are less informed than others.
He said he would sue the NY Times over publishing some of his tax returns. He never did. He said he would sue all of the many women who are accusing him publicly of sexual assault or harassment. He didn’t. He threatened to sue the RNC over delegate allocation in Louisiana. He didn’t. He threatened to sue the author of The Art of the Deal, who said that Trump is a cretin who shouldn’t get anywhere near the White House. He never did. He threatened to sue John Kasich, “I will sue him just for fun!” He never did. And why is Trump going to sue CNN? For defamation? His attorneys claim that trump “subjectively believes that the results of the 2020 presidential election turned on fraudulent voting activity in several key states.” Oxford Languages defines “delusional” as characterized by or holding false beliefs or judgments about external reality that are held despite incontrovertible evidence to the contrary, typically as a symptom of a mental condition.
In sports they say, try hard until the last seconds, and don’t give up. So why should Trump not try to push out?? I am not a republican by admiring him for giving his best. Look at the total one-sided January committee. You can’t bring in evidence, witnesses, or lawyers, you just sit and listen to stack deck. 560 dead so far when illegal immigrants answer Biden’s call to come to join him at the southern border! When does that committee start????? Like it or not it is a mess by both parties who care more about themselves than the American people. Donald Trump is a threat to the Democrat Party because they see a change in constituency. That’s not a blessing it’s a nightmare for the Dems.
