The Trump regime has gotten high off their own stash. They’re acting as if facts don’t matter, only the spin. “Alternative facts” and all. I don’t think it’ll hold up this time. Mueller’s report will be the primary text in black and white that they’ll get hammered on over and over again. I think they’ve trapped themselves because the report itself can only be so much worse than the “nothing to see here” claims of innocence.
Human nature comes into play. Tribal dynamics and such. It’s like a sports championship, or Mission Accomplished. Once you declare “game over” even your own side starts to wonder if you could’ve won bigger or spikes the ball. I think the couple of weeks of triumphalism from the MAGA tribe will have sapped their ability to handle what’s coming next - the real questions finally, based on and quoting the real report. Now the game actually begins.
