Trump: The final meltdown within 24 hours?

In his mind, he's under assault from all sides: “crazy, broken Harry Reid and his corrupt political machine”; Comey, the fastest email reader in the west; the Obamas, the crooked polls...on and on.

He's not used to this much opposition at once. He's a micro-manager; his synapses must be ready to burst into flame. I reckon he will flip his switch by late afternoon Monday.

Win or lose, we'll have The Donald to kick around for a lot longer.

prepared to entrust him with the most important job in the world.

That makes it a bit more fucked up, though. I'll be able to laugh more after the networks call it for HRC.

It's hard for me to believe that there is a small possibility that he might win.

Hopefully we will be celebrating a landslide, and laughing about his subsequent meltdown, in about 16 hours.

listening to news radio. He's back to his old freewheeling and babbling ways again.

He made a huge mistake in running for president. He may lose eveything.

no cameras, no fans, no jesus freaks, no anti-vaxxers, no gun lovers.

The worst insult of all will be disinterest.

He's a narcissist, the biggest, most stupendous narcissist in American history... next to George W. Bush. Getting his ass whipped will trigger a crash of self-esteem and for a brief, crushing moment he will be able to feel empathy, possibly for the numerous people he has harmed and the nation he has damaged.

He'll retreat into sullen reclusion for a few days until his sycophants can puff him up again, and then he'll be back to being a self-important asshole with a new television network to run into the dirt. But it will never be the same. Never again will he feel the thrill of the adoring crowds and the delusions of grandeur he enjoyed this year. And at the corners of his psyche will lurk the his favorite insult, clawing at his spirit:

LOSER.
