For Trump, What's So Bad About Going To Jail?

If you’re like me, a political junkie, Labor Day the year before a national election year can’t ever come quickly enough. Because when all is said and done, there’s really no political event in this country or any other country which compares to the day when we sit down and count what next year will be around 160 million votes to see who occupies 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for four years beginning on January 20, 2025.

And by the way, things are really beginning to rev up with the announcement yesterday that the SCOTUS will shortly be deciding a case, John Castro v. Donld Trump, which seeks to remove Trump-o from the ballot because the 14th Amendment disqualifies anyone from holding public office if they have engaged in ‘insurrection or rebellion’ against the United States.

The 14th Amendment was passed in 1868, and inserted language into the Constitution defining the civil rights of black Americans (and all Americans) who had been freed from slavery when the 13th Amendment abolishing involuntary servitude was ratified in 1865. It also contains a clause which made it impossible for the former Confederate states to send representatives to Congress who had walked out in 1860 and returned home to help organize and direct the succession of their state from the United States.

Trump-o of course immediately took to his digital bully pulpit and posted this comment on his social media site: “it is just another “trick” being used by the Radical Left Communists, Marxists, and Fascists, to again steal an Election that their candidate, the WORST, MOST INCOMPETENT, & MOST CORRUPT President in U.S. history, is incapable of winning in a Free and Fair Election.”

When was the last time that anyone in public life other than Trump-o talked like this? When was the last time that a Presidential candidate referred to the incumbent President as being ‘incompetent’ or ‘most corrupt?’

The other day I walked past a car parked outside a shopping mall and the car had a bumper sticker which read ‘if you can read this, you are too fucking close!’ When was the last time that people put bumper stickers on their cars which displayed a word like ‘fucking’ completely spelled out?

This is all Trump, or I should say, a brand called Trump. And building this brand is what Trump has been all about.

I don’t think Trump gives one rat’s damn about becoming President again. He’s done that performance already. And you can bet your bottom dollar that the Secret Service has already sent a team up to Danbury to discuss how Trump’s ‘home’ in the penitentiary will give him all the space and security he needs.

And you thought for one second that Trump-o would have a problem with getting his mug shot taken at the Fulton County jail?Can you just imagine how many coffee mugs he’ll sell with him wearing one of those grey-striped, inmate uniforms and his inmate number splayed across his chest? He’ll sell millions.

Remember that all the prisoners are allowed one phone call every day. So, Trump-o will call some guy sitting in the office of Trump Productions, Inc., who will take down what Trump wants to say that night on Truth Social and out it goes. And I’ll bet you that the day Trump-o turns himself in at whichever penitentiary he’s going to do his time, that the Truth Social subscriber base will double.

Not only isn’t Trump-o worried about being thrown off the Presidential ballot by the Castro suit, in fact the SCOTUS would be doing him a favor, okay? Like everything else in his life, Trump-o takes credit for everything he can, and if it’s a mistake, he’ll blame the other guy. I can just see his Truth Social message about how Chief Justice Roberts is a corrupt bum, and the four liberal justices are scum, or shitheads, or worse.

Know how they say that political freedom and economic freedom go together? What’s wrong with making a buck by telling people how to vote?

Works for me.
