38. I tend to agree with Ilsa

He's always busy with this or that suit (either against him or spurned by him)

I think Trump is a special case. He is not like W Bush, whom, after worshipping him for eight years, they conveniently didn't even invite him to the GOP convention following Obama's win. They manage to be able to selectively erase not only facts, but ex-Presidents as well, if they are starting to have a stink on them. We even have the present day President badmouthing the Bush family openly.

But I think Trump is a different kind of animal. He is a cult leader. He will not give up his followers without a fight, and they him. He is the shiniest biggest great white hope they have ever had, and that now that they've had a taste of such extremism, they will never be satisfied with a stand in. At the very least, some new shinier, younger, smarter, racist, sexist, fascist will need Trump's endorsement. Trump will continue to hold great sway I fear with a large chunk of the populace. He will tweet even more. He will maybe start his own Trump network with help of sympathetic billionaires like the Koch brothers. I think even if he is in prison it will only help raise his image as some kind of American cult hero.
