Trump’s Emolument Exit?

Let’s assume for a moment that the improbable happens and Donald Trump loses the presidential election in November. Other than pardoning all of his cronies, what else will he do before leaving office?

Most likely it will involve money. Trump will take advantage of his one last chance to drain more money out of the US taxpayers. Look for a lot of last minute long term government contracts for Trump, Inc. and his cronies’ companies. The new administration might try to unwind them, but good luck with that. They will be sued. The swamp will win.

Trump’s Nicknames

Donald Trump likes to ridicule opponents with nicknames. Lyin’ Ted Cruz. Mini Mike Bloomberg. Pocahontas Elizabeth Warren. He uses these nicknames because he thinks they are effective.

The reason he is convinced that they are effective is most likely personal experience. Trump went to a military academy for high school. He was either taunted there or taunted others. Probably both. He didn’t like it and when he saw how nicknames helped him bully others he got religion.

If his opponents were smart they would try to find a few people Trump grew up with. Ask them for the nicknames Trump was taunted with as a kid. Then use them against him or use them to negate his use of them.

But if they were smart enough to do that they would have done it already.
