Michael Moore, liberal filmmaker and buffet-buster, correctly predicted that Donald Trump would win the presidency.
He’s making another prediction, and I actually agree with him.
Moore has opined that Trump’s inability to be anybody other than who he has been his entire life will lead him to be either impeached or to resign, when he finds out that the presidency is not all about him.
“Here’s what’s gonna happen, this is why we’re not gonna have to suffer through four years of Donald J. Trump, because he has no ideology except the ideology of Donald J. Trump. And when you have a narcissist like that, who’s so narcissistic where it’s all about him, he will, maybe unintentionally, break laws. He will break laws because he’s only thinking about what’s best for him.”
With taxes, businesses, and marriages, he’s certainly proven that to be true.
He will always put himself first, and as he alluded to in the 2005 hot mic recording that many thought would end him, he feels that his celebrity entitles him to it.
The idea that a 70-year old elitist will suddenly become the kind of selfless servant who would actually put the huddled masses above his own wants and desires is ridiculous.
Moore also predicted that Democrats would go hard at Trump, not letting up, and this is true.
They will look to push and punish him for what was ultimately, a humiliating defeat.
“We are going to resist, we are going to oppose,” Moore said. “This is going to be a massive resistance. Women are calling for a million-women march on Inauguration Day and there is going to be the largest demonstration ever.”
Moore said that he believes people will fight back against Trump and as soon as the president slips up, it will be the end of his presidency.
I doubt that many women will show up. He’s exaggerating, there.
He is right that there will be resistance, however.
Trump will tire of the ruse as soon as he sees that he has to be more than the “brand” of the presidency, but an actual president.
If the legal system doesn’t catch up with him first, he’ll treat the job like a wife and cast it off when it ceases to hold his interest.
