Donald Trump filed papers to run for reelection on Inauguration Day. This Saturday he’s holding his first campaign rally. The Trump White House is a mess right now. Flynn resigned, Conway could be in trouble regarding ethics over her advertising for Ivanka Trump, his pick for labor secretary withdrew because there was no way in hell he was getting confirmed, dangerously lax security at Mar-A-Lago…even various members of the Grand Oppressive Party are starting to see how much of a disaster Donald Trump is. Yet instead of actually attempting to govern and do the job he was unqualified for and yet got hired to do Trump is focused on his reelection. I wouldn’t be surprised if he hadn’t already booked his victory venue and given Putin a list of his enemies to hack.
Now, to be fair, preparing for reelection early on isn’t unheard of, but seriously, it’s not even 100 days into his first term. The Oval Office probably still has the stench of fresh paint and the Con Artist in Chief is already counting chickens. But of course, one could look at it this way: Trump may just be starting to figure out how damn unpopular he is already and that maybe, just maybe, the people he conned, manipulated, and lied to to get into office are starting to figure out they’ve been had.
And trust me when I say you don’t want to be around when that part of the population figures out they’ve been had. My family has roots in that world. And we don’t like being played for a fool.
