Opinion | Trump Can’t Fight the Laws of Presidential Eclipse

No other modern president has drawn as constant attention as Trump during his tenure. Hence, it will be a much more difficult task to get it down. So far, Trump’s Twitter following has continued its sequel steady increase, but the press has started to break loose.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper looked into this during its last broadcast Friday He said he would not record Trump’s recent campaign to overturn the true vote because “it doesn’t matter.” Cooper continues the kiss said“It’s done. He’s done. He’s the past” and changed the subject to the gelatinous Biden administration. Washington Post Political columnist Karen Tumulty expressed a similar sentiment on Sunday Tweet: “A new era has dawned for me: I just turned off my phone notifications via @realDonaldTrump.” Your instincts were right. The laws of nature of the news dictate that Trump’s world will be dwarfed when more sunshine falls on Biden due to the president’s power he will reap. It’s not that he can build a business as an alternate president Antipop.

Trump has always disrupted the natural laws of news, so his ex-presidency should be allowed a few Exceptions. For one thing, unlike temporary presidents or other incumbents who have lost, Trump has already signaled continued engagement in politics and possibly another run in 2024. Many of his 73 million voters will continue to heed his messages and in his ongoing fundraising campaign, tune in when he calls Fox & friends, Cloister in aircraft hangars for his rallies, and watch him on his new one TV channel when he catches you. After all, he’s the man who enjoyed promoting the president more than actually being president. This assumes that Trump will grab Republican attention when we know that Mike Pompeo, Nikki Haley, Mike Pence, Ted Cruz, and other members of his party have ambitions of the president that won’t wait for 2028. In addition, as the loser of the Bigtime 2020 Trump has no ban on his party’s next presidential candidacy, let alone a monopoly on the interests of his voters. And who should say that his future is so bright anyway? Defeated incumbents tend to become political roadkill. Only one, Grover Cleveland, has returned to serve not consecutive Presidential terms.

Trump should know better than anyone that voters are moody and craving news from his experience as a television star The Apprentice. ONE certified hit In the first two seasons, the show was also shown in the last nine seasons as only the hardcore viewers continued to watch. Although he knew he had an audience problem, none of his new programming changes were Celebrity Apprentice or All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, won back the crowds. What attention grabbing trick could Trump have up his sleeve to win back his political audience? I suppose he could go full QAnon, but since QAnon supporters are already in his coalition, this wouldn’t automatically improve his profile. His current initiative to approach me, to decipher the fairness of the elections, seems to be marked by a positive lack of imagination. He didn’t provide a company proofs a stolen election outside of his arguments of allegation on Twitter. Is it blocked? Or has he exhausted his repertoire and his novelty?

Trump may have accidentally stumbled upon a way to enter the Mindshare Sweepstakes during his post-presidency, although it likely won’t get the kind of attention he desires. Trump, denied the presidency shield, could be the target Civil and criminal charges in state and federal courts. The drumbeat of “Trump Indicted Again” would keep him trending for a long time in his post-White House years, though I’m sure he would prefer to turn heads down.

“There is no criticism like the criticism of direct indifference,” wrote Alexander Cockburn in 1986. As the dedication ritual accelerates, every third word on the cable news and front pages is about Biden and Harris as the imperial powers of the presidency , and as Trump slips into exile in Mar-a-Lago, Trump will feel something that comes close to direct indifference when the nation finally stops following him.


At the rate Trump is shrinking, his fingers will soon be normal size. Send “short-fingered vulgar“Kidding too [email protected]. My Email notifications say their fingers are big, it is the fingers of the political pillars that have become small. My Twitter Feed wears a ring on each finger. My RSS feed is obviously giving the world its finger.
