The Trump Troll Train Keeps Chugging Along
Happy Monday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. I do most of my swearing in British now.
While I do miss having Donald Trump as this nation’s president, I’m glad that he continues to find ways to hang around the news. He has been living rent-free in liberals’ heads since he left Washington in January and it never ceases to be entertaining.
Last week we took a look at Trump teaming up with Newt Gingrich in an attempt to give the Republican party some backbone. He continues to remind the squishes in the GOP that the party still belongs to him. Hardcore Trump fans love the fact that he annoys all the people worth annoying in both major parties.
Despite the overwhelming effort by the Democrats and the mainstream media to install the Usurper Biden in the Oval Office and banish Trump, the lefties just can’t seem to quit Orange Man Bad. It’s a dysfunctional affair that’s going to go on for a long time.
Trump is going to make sure of that.
Matt wrote a post over the weekend about Trump’s latest turn in the troll spotlight and it is absolutely delicious:
Should President Trump run for House of Representatives in 2022 in order to become speaker of the House?
Well, Steve Bannon floated the idea on Friday and radio host Wayne Allyn Root asked Trump outright about it on Friday.
And Trump didn’t dismiss the idea.
“That’s so interesting,” Trump said.
“Yeah, you know it’s very interesting,” Trump continued before mentioning that others have suggested he run for the U.S. Senate. “But you know what, your idea might be better. It’s very interesting.”
I’ve been smiling ever since I read the story the other day. Matt wrote that he believes Trump wouldn’t really be interested in being a member of the House and he’s probably right but, let’s all be honest here: it is a lot of fun to think about. It would be a blast to be a fly on the wall during a meeting of the editorial boards of either The New York Times or The Washington Post while they were discussing this.
There is precedent for this. John Quincy Adams spent 17 years in the House of Representatives after serving one term as president. Trump could probably win a seat rather easily. It would be endless fun watching him shake things up on Capitol Hill. The Never-Trump surrender-monkey Republicans would drown in tears.
The best part of this fantasy is imagining Trump becoming Speaker of the House if the GOP can win back the majority. Then he could spearhead impeachment proceedings against President Puppet.
Yes, it’s a fantastical idea that most likely isn’t going to happen, but if ever there was a politician who could pull something like that off, it would be Donald Trump. It’s easy to imagine him pondering this and saying, “Why the hell not?”
And it’s fun to imagine him taking the gavel from Granny Boxwine.
Hey, a guy can dream.
