Yeah, not clicking that, for exactly that reason.

I haven't been to Truth Social yet either. I plan to keep it that way.

Shocked, utterly shocked! Who could have foreseen this!

So if he loses in 2024, will there be another attempted insurrection? Man so many exciting things to eat popcorn watching. Musk is feeding us now, soon Trump will give us something worth getting out the double sized bowls worth to much on.

Another article. BBC had several, but this one in particular interviewed former President Trump supporters and asked whether or not they would support another campaign. Not sure how they pick and choose their interviewees, but they seem to have found a wide variety of opinions.

My opinion: Good. Let's get this out of the way now rather than having it held over our heads until the last minute. Unfortunately, he seems to have enough support to continue wearing the red tie and won't be going off on his own as I would have preferred.

Republican leadership had 2 chances to oust this guy and ensure he couldn't run again. They get what they deserve. That said, if he doesn't get the nomination (and I doubt he will - I get the feeling the GOP is finally ready to toss him after this latest 'red wave'), he'll likely run 3rd party. There's no way he gets behind DeSantis. Too many rubes to still fleece.

So it goes.

No, he won't. The whole part of a third party run is when you think you can take voters from both sides. Trump can't do that.

He'll probably sulk and lob grenades from the sidelines, but there's no way he goes third party. It's a guaranteed loss.

Exactly. For the GOP. If he can't have it then nobody can and he will burn it all to the ground if he doesn't get his way - he's never given a shit about anything other than Trump.

So it goes.

The third party thing will never work for a number of reasons. One being places like Virginia have strict limitations on what parties can be on the ballot (or did while I lived there). So if Trump creates MAGA then Virginia wouldn't see it on their ballot and it would have to be a write-in. When was the last time a write-in won any election when named candidates had checkboxes ready to be marked?

Senator Murkowski pulled it off a dozen years ago, and she's still in office (and will likely be re-elected again this year thanks to AK's ranked-choice voting). Still, I don't think winning is the whole point for Trump this time around. He thinks A) announcing his run for President will give him some sort of immunity from being charged by the DOJ or Georgia, B) there is still money on the table to be taken in, both from rubes and dark money PACs, and C) Trump loves nothing more than revenge against anyone he thinks has slighted him. If the GOP starts to move to toss him to the curb, he will crank up the whining and vitriol to 11 and take down anyone and anything that threatens his 'control' over the party. Heck, he's already insinuated that he has dirt on DeSantis "that even his wife doesn't know about" or some such crap. Popcorn time indeed.

So it goes.

Let's also not forget that Trump is the grifter in chief.

I have a strong hunch that he has no expectations of presidency, and this is all another grift to misdirect attention and fleece the rubes to help pay for his looming lawsuits.

edit: I didn't see 709's reply before mine. Same vibes.

As odd as this is (politically speaking) I happen to think you are both right.
