I know we are all anxious to see Trump finally held accountable for his crimes, especially those that have caused so much damage to our country and our countrymen.

But while I'm waiting for true justice to be served, I am watching an arrogant, self-serving man being humiliated on a daily basis - and I am savouring every minute of it.

With every court ruling against him, TFG is being reminded that he is no longer an all-powerful, above-the-law "pResident" - and given his enormous ego, the very thought of being treated as just another citizen, subject to the decisions of judges he no doubt looks down upon, is undoubtedly as infuriating as it is humiliating.

Being told that he must submit to the will of others is bad enough for the ultimate narcissist - but the fact that he's being told in front of the world must be excruciatingly painful.

As a result of recent court decisions, this is just the beginning of the very public humiliation that is yet to come. The self-made billionaire is about to be exposed as nothing more than a flim-flam man. The savvy businessman is about to be revealed as an abysmal failure whose alleged empire was all smoke-and-mirrors - a "success story" built on lying to investors, scamming bankers, and cheating the tax man.

For someone like Trump, being stripped of his self-created title of world-renowned financial genius is far more devastating than anything the US justice system can mete out.

I'm sure he'd rather go to prison as a still-worshipped, still-adored, successful political powerhouse than hold court at Mara-Lago as the weak, spineless loser he will eventually be proven to be.

I believe that justice will prevail and TFG will be held accountable for his crimes against the nation.

But in the meantime, watching him publicly humiliated, over and over, is an increasingly enjoyable pastime.

Sometimes we're so anxious for the game to start, we overlook the pre-game show - which itself can be oh-so-satisfying in its own right.
