How will getting thrown in the slammer help Trump?

This is the biggest question the media has to deal with today, apparently.

But I'll be delighted to see him in jail, as will millions of other people.

4. Trump in jail will be anti climatic. His crowd just isn't into him anymore.

Nor even enough to protest outside court.

People are tired.

5. After a couple of hours of jail time, he will emerge and play the victim while bragging about his "sacrifice".

His dumbass followers will reach for the kleenex and call for revenge.

6. Trumnp won't do well in jail and that might further his mental decline as he freaks out on future sentences.

Sure his loon base will be pissed, but they already are.

What would do him well is a Friday - Monday morning stint in lockup.

Anything less than a overnight stay won't accomplish anything but give him boasting rights.

but I just don't know how it helps him. Of course, nothing works how it should in terms of Trump, unfortunately.
