Let me be abundantly clear about the state of play in the upcoming 2024 presidential election campaign.
I cannot understand and never will accept how it is that a former POTUS, twice impeached while he was in office who now stands indicted on allegations that he committed 91 felony crimes remains the favorite among those who subscribe to a major political party.
And that they are poised to nominate him to run for the office he lost in the previous election even if he is convicted of any of the felonies.
I need someone to explain to me how a voting public can be so ignorant and blind to the reality posed by the consequences of a potential conviction. The man could face a sentence of effectively serving the rest of his life in prison.
Still, he might be nominated by the Republican Party to run for the presidency … yet again!
What the hell is wrong with this picture?
Donald Trump remains the top candidate for the GOP presidential nomination. He won’t show up for presidential debates to face his gaggle of GOP primary foes. His legal team is seeking to stall the start of four criminal trials in which Trump is a criminal defendant.
He said if he’s elected to the presidency, that he will be “the retribution” of those who believe he has been done wrong. He would pardon himself and the 1/6 traitors who sought to overturn the results of the 2020 election by launching the assault on our Capitol Building.
Some of Trump’s primary foes say his conduct was abhorrent and wrong … but they’d still support him if he’s the nominee.
I stand behind my belief he won’t be nominated. He might not even be eligible to run for office, given the Constitution’s stipulation that anyone who commits an insurrection or gives “aid and comfort’ to those who do is disqualified.
How in the world, though, have we come to the point where this is even a discussion topic?
