8. I said in 2015 at my folks house that we were in trouble if he got the nod.

Didn’t think he’d be able to make it through the primary season without shooting himself in the foot. And he did. Repeatedly. But like those weighted clown boxing bags, he just kept popping back up.

And here we are, he still walks free, he still monopolizes all the front pages of every website. It’s an unholy, unhealthy obsession with fame and celebrity that activates a sizable portion of our electorate. Add in the real shitheads, like the boogaloos, and proud idiots, and that’s how things went down in 2016. I wonder if there’s enough resistance today to keep him out in 2024?

Honestly, that there are still hardcore supporters on his side reveals the depth and breadth of mental illness in this country.
