12. Not really

Trump has always been unpredictable. He has always discovered the most odious things to say and do. But this game is over and he lost.

I expect two things will happen to Trump over the next year or so. First, his legal and financial troubles will come to dominate his life. He's about to discover how invasive our systems can be.

Second, he'll continue to tweet and hold rallies but as time goes on, his old shtick will grow tiresome. Fewer people will attend his events. Since he won't have any power, his bleatings won't be particularly relevant. Over time, less and less people will pay attention to him especially since new events will unfold as the world moves on.

Trump is not going to be a viable candidate in 2024. Too much of his malfeasance and criminality will come out in the coming months. His personal circumstances are going to change drastically. Besides, Republicans won't let Trump happen again. Instead, they'll find someone smarter and far more devious.
