President Donald Trump is planning to ditch the very real inauguration of the very fake President Joe Biden – if he actually becomes president – to show the country he’s still got plenty of fight left in him as well as a desire to win.
According to various reports Tuesday, the (real) president is planning a massive exit from the White House to include a Marine One ride to Air Force One, which he’ll take to a pre-planned (and well-attended) rally in Florida.
Where he’ll announce his 2024 run.
Axios has more:
President Trump is considering a made-for-TV grand finale: a White House departure on Marine One and final Air Force One flight to Florida for a political rally opposite Joe Biden’s inauguration, sources familiar with the discussions tell Axios.
Why it matters: The former network star is privately discussing using his waning powers as commander in chief to order up the exit he wants after dissing Biden by refusing to concede the election, welcome him to the White House or commit to attending his inauguration.
The big picture: The Trump talk could create a split-screen moment: the outgoing president addressing a roaring crowd in an airport hangar while the incoming leader is sworn in before a socially distanced audience outside the Capitol, as NBC News first reported.
NBC News noted further:
Trump is keen on the idea of formally launching a 2024 campaign on Inauguration Day because that’s when he filed for re-election in 2017, people familiar with the discussions said.
Trump has recently told some advisers he wants to announce a 2024 campaign shortly after the Electoral College meets on Dec. 14, the people familiar with the discussions said. If he were to announce earlier, he could still hold a campaign-style event or rally on Jan. 20.
The White House pushed back – a little – on the reports.
“Anonymous sources who claim to know what the president is or is not considering have no idea. When President Trump has an announcement about his plans for Jan. 20 he will let you know,” spokesman Judd Deere said.
But obviously, Deere left open the possibility by not directly saying Trump will attend a Biden inauguration.
Of course, not everyone wants the president to skip it. They’re still wedded to the same corrupt system that deprived Trump of his next four years now instead of having to wait until later.
“I just think it’s good for the country. It’d be good for him,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said.
Uh, no. It wouldn’t. Because attending gives credence and legitimacy to a very illegitimate process.
And besides, there is the fact that more than five dozen Democrats refused to show up for Trump’s inaugural in January 2017 – because they are petty, nonsensical, and egregious.
President Trump was obviously robbed of this election (Tucker Carlson explains why in this story). What’s also obvious is that the American people whom Trump represents – those that still care about our future and this republic – no longer have any control whatsoever over who governs us, and how they govern.
If it’s not time to separate from that system, when will it be?
