It’s easy enough to surmise that anyone still taking up for Donald Trump this late in the floating game of Three Card Monte he’s been living his whole life is absolutely fine with whatever he’s done. The stragglers in the clown car parked outside Mar-A-Lago who are helping him push his Big Lie are clearly in it to the end, although no one will ever be able to make me understand why someone would throw their life away for Trump, because he couldn’t care less about anyone but himself. I hope Lindsey Graham thinks Trump is going to be of any help to him in Fulton County, I enjoy watching these compromised traitors finding out that there is no special snowflake exception to the rule: Everything Trump Touches Dies (h/t Rick Wilson).
There is the tiniest part of me that would love to believe that everyone still left in TrumpWorld has their breaking point, even his cultishly devoted fanbase. The laundry list of awful they’ve tolerated is well-known, but what none of them ever heard before regarding their Dear Leader is testimony from multiple reliable (and Republican) sources about Trump’s involvement in the effort to keep him in the White House even after he had privately acknowledged he had lost the 2020 Presidential election.The biggest question hovering over the January 6th House Select Committee hearings from even before they began was: “Will they make a difference to Trump’s base?” I mean, if I found out Joe Biden had scammed $250 million from a non-existent PAC to pay his legal bills and gave Ron Klain a cool $1 million tip for staying loyal, I’d be pretty mad. So does MAGA care?

It’s hard to believe any of the die-hards who have lasted this far will abandon him, but consider the testimony from the Capitol rioter who said he would’ve acted differently if he had known Trump knew he lost the election. Now multiply that by a few thousand. And then maybe multiply that as more is learned about Trump’s lack of action and his deliberate attempt to use the crowd to murder his political enemies. We can only hope the truth finally gets through and his base will realize it’s time for them to walk away. Because he walked away from them a long time ago.
