Trumpism plays out like a reality show that’s lost its glamour and has become ugly and boring. The Trump “reality” show is delusional and anything but real. Trump attempts to shove his desired reality down our throats despite the fact that he (Trump) lost the election and Biden won. There’s no evidence of any relevant amount of “fraud” that may affect the outcome that Trump lost.
Trump persists because he will be penniless and in prison if he’s not in the White House. Meanwhile, Trump tortures the world with his reality and we, the majority of humanity do not share his version of existence.
Trump will not be happy unless and until he wins no matter who else suffers or dies. He only cares for himself. He holds the planet hostage, much like Hitler did.
How is it that every generation the world suffers its tyrants, dictators and despots? How can we overcome this meglamaniac and prevent the next psychopath from running amok and taking over?
As Trump Loses And Eyes Post-WH Plans, Reality TV Exec Explains The Uphill Battle | MSNBC
After decisively losing the election to Joe Biden, Trump is being tuned out by TV networks. Reality TV show producer Michael Hirschorn explains to MSNBC’s Ari Melber how the decline of Trump’s show “The Apprentice” and other reality shows can show Americans what to expect from Trump as his days in the White House diminish.

TRUMP MANIPULATES HUMANITY TO SERVE HIMSELF
To delusional Trump supporters, mind-controlled cult followers, Trumpism has become a religion. The Republican party is swallowed up, absorbed, dead, gone. What’s left is unrecognizable.
Trump gathers followers, groupies and born-again Trumpets who push his products like the wares of a snake oil salesman or a used car salesman. He convinces his true believers to follow his one and only pathway to glory like a charismatic evangelist as depicted by Steve Martin in “Blinded by the Light” That may not be so bad if his intention was that his followers had a better life or even afterlife.
The only one served by these machinations are Donald Trump as he saves his ass from jail, avoids creditors who are about to call in the multi-million dollar loans he personally guaranteed. He sells America’s secrets, jeopardizes every American, and kills thousands whom he told not to wear masks.

Trump’s endgame comes into view
- He named his longtime aide Ron Klain, his longtime friend as chief of staff,
- He’s taking calls from more foreign leaders, although without help from the US State Department that he’ll soon oversee.
- A few more Republican senators said he should begin to get classified briefings even though they wouldn’t publicly acknowledge the fact he won.
Biden’s job is going to be hard. Infectious disease expert Michael Osterholm, a member of Biden’s Covid task force, suggested a four-week nationwide lockdown with the government covering wages and losses for many companies. “If we did that then we could lock down for four to six weeks and if we did that, we could drive the numbers down. Like they’ve done in Asia. Like they did in New Zealand and Australia,” he told Yahoo! Finance.
- Biden named Ron Klain as his White House chief of staff
- State Department is preventing Biden from accessing messages from foreign leaders
- Republican senator says he will step in if Biden doesn’t have access to intelligence briefings
- MAP: Full election results
Biden does not share that view. “Trump’s comments were not in line with the PEOTUS view,” a transition aide said, according to CNN’s Arlette Saenz. (PEOTUS is aide-speak for President-elect of the United States).
Trump, says Gloria Borger, thinks only of himself. “He’s not worried about the Republican Party. He’s worried about how he can commercialize and monetize all of this.
“Monetizing his loss could include post-election King Trump rallies across America (with paid attendance). He’ll say his rallies are bigger than Oprah’s motivational gatherings? A TV show! A big book deal, worth millions! (He’ll want more than Obama, but won’t get it.) Another run in 2024!
“Dragging out the election will help him raise money too. Denying reality lets Trump ask supporters for money he can use to influence them down the road.”
“Right now, though, he’s raising money allegedly to fight the inevitably fruitless court battles on some imagined voter fraud. But look at the small print: The money also seeds his newly established political action committee. So while he’s telling his voters he’s fighting to stay, he’s also looking for way to fund his future endeavors when he leaves. Always looking for a way to find a buck.”
The election-denying media landscape. With Gloria’s report in mind, now read Brian Stelter’s report about the rise of Newsmax TV. Its ratings are still small compared to Fox but have skyrocketed as Fox pushed the reality that Trump lost and Newsmax burrowed into the fallacy that Trump could still win.
Stelter interviewed Chris Ruddy, the Newsmax CEO and longtime Trump confidant/informal adviser: From Stelter’s story: “ Taking a big picture view, Newsmax’s sudden gains are about demand meeting supply. There is a demand for content that swears Biden is not president-elect; that Trump is not a loser; that Trump might even win a second term.
Al Schmidt, the Republican city commissioner of Philadelphia, touched on the demand side when he told CNN’s John Berman: “One thing I can’t comprehend is how hungry people are to consume lies and to consume information that is not true.”AND: This is a demand issue right now.
Trump loyalists are discovering Newsmax, some are also downloading Parler, the “Twitter-like app that describes itself as the world’s ‘premier free speech social network,'” New York Times’ Mike Isaac and Kellen Browning wrote Wednesday. “ We are witnessing a further “fracturing of the information ecosystem,” caused by conservatives who can’t or don’t believe that more Americans voted for Biden than Trump.“
Stelter said,” Hackers and trolls captured the public’s imagination when the most disruptive propaganda has been coming from more familiar sources. Think about Sean Hannity’s daily dose of whataboutism: His insistence that Trump fans should trust their tribe and disregard all outside sources of information has been staring us in the face for years. Newsmax is another example of this. The storylines and statements merit scrutiny but resist easy fact-checking. Ruddy, for example, said he spoke with Trump on Thursday, and said both men agree that every vote should be counted. The way Ruddy said it implied suspicion like there was some sort of conspiracy afoot to stop Trump voters from being heard. But all the votes are being counted, and in fact the vast majority already have been.“Trump’s now got it in for Fox. Consider Trump’s increasingly frantic Twitter attacks on Fox. He sent 44 tweets or retweets Thursday morning and 16 of them were either bashing Fox or promoting Newsmax or another network, OANN.“
How long will Trump hold out?
CNN’s Dana Bash and Jeff Zeleny report that Georgia is doing a hand recount do not expect the President to make any public moves towards stating the obvious – that he lost – until at least that’s done. Georgia’s certification deadline is November 20. Michigan’s and Pennyslvania’s are November 23.
Republican leadership has told senators they expect this to not drag on “no more than another week.”But who knows, really. And this report from CNN’s White House team suggests even Trump is waffling, hour by hour, on what he should do. And nobody knows when or how he’ll ultimately acknowledge defeat. Once he does, expect a raft of last-minute pardons, including, maybe, the never-before-attempted pre-emptive self-pardon.“
Trump’s national security purge continues
Two more national security-related officials fired — this time at DHS, including Assistant Secretary for International Affairs Valerie Boyd, who wrote a resignation letter, which says
“People of character should support the institution of the Presidency and work within it to inform and influence policy decisions that reflect well on the people’s government. I wish you and our colleagues across the government the strength to act with honor in the months ahead.”
There is an open disagreement between Trump loyalists and the rest of the GOP establishment about CIA Director Gina Haspel, who has opposed the release of secret information related to Russia.
Senators Mitch McConnell and Marco Rubio have publicly displayed support for Haspel. But she appears to be endangered as she faces criticism from Donald Trump Jr., who makes it seem on Twitter like he’s in the know on secret national security matters relating to Russia.
THE CHAIRMAN OF THE JOINT CHIEFS PROMISES TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION, NOT JUST OBEY THE MAN WHO SAYS HE’S PRESIDENT
Gen. Mark Milley, the top American service member, said,
“We are unique among militaries. We do not take an oath to a king or a queen, a tyrant or a dictator. We do not take an oath to an individual.
“We do not take an oath to a country, a tribe or religion.
“We take an oath to the Constitution.
“Every soldier sailor, airman, Marine, Coast Guardsman, each of us will protect and defend that document, regardless of personal price.”
TRUMP’S PATHOLOGY MAY KILL MILLIONS; HE MUST BE REMOVED
Since the start of Donald Trump’s presidential run, one question has quietly but urgently permeated the observations of concerned citizens: What is wrong with him? Constrained by the American Psychiatric Association’s “Goldwater rule,” which inhibits mental health professionals from diagnosing public figures they have not personally examined, many of those qualified to answer this question have shied away from discussing the issue at all. The public has thus been left to wonder whether he is mad, bad, or both.
Psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health experts argue that, in Mr. Trump’s case, their moral and civic “duty to warn” America supersedes professional neutrality. They then explore Trump’s symptoms and potentially relevant diagnoses to find a complex, if also dangerously mad, man.
Philip Zimbardo and Rosemary Sword, for instance, explain Trump’s impulsivity in terms of “unbridled and extreme present hedonism.” Craig Malkin writes on pathological narcissism and politics as a lethal mix. Gail Sheehy, on a lack of trust that exceeds paranoia. Lance Dodes, on sociopathy. Robert Jay Lifton, on the “malignant normality” that can set in everyday life if psychiatrists do not speak up.
“His madness is catching, too. From the trauma people have experienced under the Trump administration to the cult-like characteristics of his followers, he has created unprecedented mental health consequences across our nation and beyond.
