Humiliated & Furious Trump Will Be Gunning for Murdoch in 2021
Toxic narcissists cannot tolerate defiance, especially when that causes the narcissist to be humiliated. They will go to any lengths to redress that grievance.
Which is why Trump is going to be gunning for Murdoch in 2021 and thereafter.
What will this mean?
Back in 2015 (oh those innocent, halcyon days of youth), it was “common knowledge” that Trump was running for President just to boost his hotel business, and that after sanity prevailed and he lost, The Donald would pivot on his new media platform to launch “Trump TV,” his own network for wacko conspiracy theories and nonstop, 24-hour-a-day hawking of worthless Trump Steaks, Trump Vodka and whatever else bullshit Ivanka could dream up with Jared.
Of course, nobody thought that the Orangeanus would actually win - least of all, Trump himself. But now that he has, and mismanaged the country into a simultaneous depression and pandemic, and the chickens have come home to roost, Trump is going to cast about for someone to blame for all his humiliation and disgrace (notice, if you will, how often he uses the word “disgrace” - it’s a key to how his mind works).
There are a number of ways this can go:
- Trump's new network is a raging success, as he launches nonstop attacks against "FAKE FOX!!!" and his followers desert to Trump TV
- Trump's new network is popular, but not dominant, which sparks a fight, and the right-wing audience descends into a bitter war with itself for a generation
- Trump gets a lot of Deplorables, but Fox News launches counterattacks, coordinating with Sinclair to crush this rival
- Trump TV is an utter failure like every single other business venture Trump has ever tried and vanishes by 2022
Not sure which outcome I like best.
