I want you to game something out with me. You’re not going to like it. Here goes:
If there’s one thing The Donald hates more than germs, it’s losing the adoration of his base. He’ll do ANYTHING to keep basking in their praise and adoration. We know this. We’ve seen this. This is not new or news and it’s why he has said he’ll continue holding rallies as the threat grows.
Think about it. There’s literally no downside for him. In fact, there are only three possibilities:
- He continues holding rallies over the course of the pandemic and doesn’t get sick.
Response from his base: See?! The Donald said there was nothing to worry about and he was right! Teh libz were just politicizing it the whole time after all!
- He continues holding rallies over the course of the pandemic and gets sick. If this happens, he either recovers or he dies from it.
- Response from his base if he recovers: See?! The Donald is so tough that he beat the lib virus (and it is the lib virus, you see: Politicized by the libs and originating in Chy’nah (COMMUNIST!)
- Response from his base if he dies: Instant martyrdom. Put him on a cross right next to Jesus Christ. Pence elected in a landslide, his kids elected in succession after that.
The stuff of nightmares.
