Writing for Vanity Fair this Monday, Bess Levin says that if Donald Trump had any shame, the last time we'd have to hear from him would have been the day he left the White House. "But Trump, of course, has no shame. Or integrity. Or morals. Or decency. Or respect," she writes.
At CPAC this weekend, Trump hinted that the next four years will look like, which will likely one long revenge campaign against whose he deems as disloyal, siccing his "fascist mob of followers" on people who spoke out against him like he sicced them on Mike Pence.
"Building on the Big Lie that he won the November election, which a terrifying three-quarters of Republicans believe, Trump said he 'may even decide to beat [Democrats] for a third time,' adding, 'With your help, we will take back the House. We will win the Senate. And then a Republican president will make a triumphant return to the White House. And I wonder who that will be,'" Levin writes. "Not surprisingly, Trump's eldest son, who apparently only receives a biannual hug from his father, loved the line about winning for 'a third time.'"
Trump's history of keeping people guessing when it comes to a presidential run likely means he'll wait until the last minute until he announces anything related to 2024. "For now, though, he's clearly happy to ride the grift train all the way to the bank."
