He won’t publicly concede because he has an issue with the word “loser”. He simply will never admit he lost. Yet he is allowing the transition to Biden to begin. Smells like he is ramping up for a new talk show and/or network with his eye on ‘24. Probably eyeing replacing Rush when he succumbs to lung cancer. We are not rid of orange man quite yet.

Trump can barely string 4th-grade vocabulary into coherent sentences. When he’s forced to read someone else’s words, he does so in a monotone drone. I can’t imagine him replacing Rush or hosting some show.
But yes. Brace brace brace.November 26, 2020 at 7:21 pm #48942radiogeekParticipant
You have a point about Trump not doing conversation well, and not being fast enough on his feet to host a show. He’s best giving rambling addresses to an adoring audience that won’t question anything he says. He might be a frequent call in guest to right wing video, and will easily continue his lunatic ranting on a video podcast. I’m sure he’ll be a continuous pain in the ass.

Well, he’ll continue to damage the Republican party.
You should see the messages the Trumpers leave on Facebook. Such nasty people.
Interesting article from the New York Times, on Trump’s overwhelming fear of being considered a loser: https://news.yahoo.com/loser-lifelong-fear-bookended-trumps-194157136.htmlNovember 27, 2020 at 7:43 pm #48945
I think Trump is using the playbook he was going to use when he thought he was going to lose to Clinton.November 27, 2020 at 9:13 pm #48946
In other words, he is trying to create a bonus round. How utterly awful this is for our democracy. Yet his base continues to be his lap dogs. Pitiful.November 27, 2020 at 9:28 pm #48947
I agree, Chris. Trump can’t handle losing – so he has to pretend he won. He didn’t lose – it was fraud, blah blah blah. Same thing he was going to do in 2016.November 27, 2020 at 10:09 pm #48948
My wife is a pretty strong intuitive and I remember when she commented on when Trump met with Obama in the Oval Office. My wife said, “Trump looked scared.”
I think he’s been covering up his insecurity for the past 4 years and it’s come to full fruition these final months of his term.
It won’t take Hollywood too long to make a film. I suspect the script is nearly done, just waiting to see how it all ends up.November 27, 2020 at 10:16 pm #48949
Chris, have you read Mary Trump’s book? She is a psychologist and has some opinions about her uncle’s psychological make-up (some of seems like psycho-babble to me though). But it’s not hard to guess: Trump seems extremely thin-skinned and vindictive.
The book is quite fascinating – I really knew nothing about the man’s biography other than growing up in Queens, knew nothing about his father etc.November 28, 2020 at 7:05 pm #48954
Andrew, I have not read Mary’s book about her uncle. But I have seen a number of interviews she’s given and have read some passages from her book that were posted online.

I am officially on a Trump diet. No more energy spent on this man. He is out of my life. I will not post anything about him again. He is not allowed in my psyche. Time to move on to a better America.November 30, 2020 at 6:16 pm #48970lastdayParticipant
Paul, I feel the same way. But I’m quite sure that Trump is going to continue to try and drown us with his firehose spewing lies for the near future. It will be hard to avoid without going off the grid.November 30, 2020 at 6:50 pm #48971
I’m sure Trump’s rantings will still be covered in the media but not as prominently, so they should be a lot easier to ignore. His actions may have to compete with indictments.November 30, 2020 at 7:46 pm #48972Jeffrey KoppParticipant
He’s not going to live forever.November 30, 2020 at 7:54 pm #48973VitalogyParticipant
I think we will see Trump fade away faster than most of us think. Once he is no longer President his visibility will be greatly diminished by most media outlets. Because he will no longer matter.
What concerns me more is the continuation of Trumpism.
