Vengeance Shall Be His!

Seething Rage.

Well, this was predictable:

Over the past few weeks, Donald Trump and his allies have kept close tabs on prominent conservatives the president believes are gearing up to throw him under the bus in the event he loses his bid for re-election.

Two individuals who have spoken to Trump say the president has expressed suspicion that members of his own party believe he will be defeated by Joe Biden. That sense of paranoia has been fed by the president’s aides and confidants, who have flagged news coverage for him of Republican politicians either openly criticizing his conduct or else trying to distance themselves from a looming possible electoral bloodbath.

According to one of the sources with direct knowledge, the president is already contemplating retribution.

You don’t say?

Anyway, the Daily Beast include details of who, exactly, is not kissing his ring with enough vigor, and it’s mostly the usual suspects: Willard, Sasse, Susan Colins… and #MoscowMitch?

Some of the coverage that has been bookmarked for Trump includes recent stories on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who has not only split with the president on coronavirus-related stimulus legislation but made a point of saying he hadn’t been to the White House in weeks because of its cavalier approach to the pandemic.

Well, he still has uncle Rupie, right?

Still, those signaling that they’re ready to jump ship do include some major players in conservative politics. One of the president’s most powerful and influential confidants, billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch, has been telling associates he thinks Biden will win in a landslide, as The Daily Beast reported last week. Murdoch specifically said he had been repelled by the president’s mismanagement of the COVID-19 crisis.

Anyway, it’s a start. But it makes you wonder –given how he sought revenge following the Impeachment hearings– what he has in store for his own party if the unthinkable happens and he wins re-election.

    I’m completely cool with this. The more energy Trump and the rest of the Republicans put into fighting each other, the less they’ll have left over to screw up the election — and the less likely the rest of them are to support him in some kind of half-assed coup attempt.

    And if these militias and QAnon qrackpots we’ve been worried about turn their-post-election wrath on insufficiently-toadyish Republicans instead of on us, well, it will be a lesson for the Republicans as a whole about the ill wisdom of calling up golems they cannot put down.

  2. Pretty soon it just going to be him kicking everyone out of the Oval but Keitel, Jodl, Krebs and Burgdorf Miller, McCarthy, Jared and Ivanka, and ranting about Steiner’s inability to conduct the counter-assault Barr’s inability to arrest and imprison all his enemies.

    Someone showed me a meme that I have mixed feelings about. Something like “If you think 2020 is bad, wait for 2021 when the civil war starts and all you gun haters are trying to defend your homes with a spatula and a dildo”. I looked at that for a minute, wondering what the heck was bugging me about it and ended up not saying anything. I think she wanted me to think it was funny, but I just saw the threat. At first.
    On the one hand, the bait of assuming anyone against them is a gun hater has no gun, especially around here where some of the wildlife checks you out as a possible dinner, is off kilter, but on the other hand, the main message breaks down to 1) “we” are planning on a civil war because B) we know “our” candidate is too flawed to win without threats, or a civil war.

      I know what you mean about the wildlife. Our local Black Bear and I came to a resolution of sorts a few years ago. I leave the one wet trash can available for him, and he doesn’t breakdown the pen with all the cans and bottles. He wrecked it pretty well one year before we agreed. My neighbor didn’t have an agreement with Bruno. His old trailer lost a window and part of the siding one night. The inside looks like it’s been thru the washer’s spin cycle. Good thing no one lived in it anymore. I have the means to take Bruno and close at hand, but I figure he has lived here longer than my 14 years and deserves some respect. We humans must try to adapt, but then biting is an absolute no-no.

      Never underestimate the power of a spatula and a dildo.

        Some of these armchair warriors who’ve never held a gun while sober may be surprise upon encountering an experienced spatula wielder. And a dildo in the hands of an expert can really f@*k you up. Exactly what they’re designed to do.

        In addition, many spatula wielders are using them in conjunction with pans. Some even use cast iron pans. So a spatula implies other weapons of choice available.

    Look to the Brits. Rupert Mudrock has no real principles except backing a winner (e.g. Tony Blair). And Boris consolidated power by kicking a whole bunch of Never-Boris Tories out of the party. If memory serves, one of them was his brother Joe. It’s always the Night of the Long Knives with these guys.

    Justice would be for the GOP co-conspirators to end their days changing diapers of the young and very old at an ICE detention center. Trump, never having any interest in justice, will likely punish them with something less useful but more humiliating.
