Highly speculative, certainly. But highly amusing just the same.
Meet the New House Speaker: President Donald J. Trump…Running Congress Direct From Maralago
I told you so. My plan worked. It just worked in a way I never imagined.
Like Martin Luther King, I had a dream. My dream was Trump as House Speaker. I was the first in America to propose the idea in a commentary on 1/30/21. Then I talked about it nonstop for months on my nationally-syndicated radio show. I personally lobbied President Trump in numerous appearances on my radio and TV shows.
But Trump made it clear he never really wanted it. Trump is always number one. The Chairman of the Board. The 5 Star General. He doesn’t take orders from anyone. I think he always looked at Nancy Pelosi, Paul Ryan and John Boehner (the last 3 House Speakers) as errand boys and girls. Order takers. So, Trump never wanted the job. Not enough star power for him.
And who can blame him? Look at Trump’s life. Trump had the greatest life on earth. He became not only a billionaire, but the most famous billionaire on earth. The celebrity of all celebrities. With the most famous celebrity estate- Maralago. And the most famous reality TV show, “Celebrity Apprentice.”
Who’d give that life up?
Trump did. To save America and the forgotten middle class. To fight the DC Swamp and the Deep State. To make America great again. He gave up his one-in-a-billion life for you and me!
Now he wants to be president again. Trump never saw House Speaker as his calling. He was flattered by my idea. But he never wanted the job. House Speaker takes up too much time. Trump needs to be free to run for president again.
Trump plays chess at much higher level. My idea was a good one. Trump just made it happen in a different way. You see, Trump is the newly elected House Speaker. Just not in name. In name, the title goes to Kevin McCarthy.
But guess who got McCarthy elected? Trump. And guess who controls McCarthy’s every move as House Speaker? The MAGA, America First, loyal Trump members of the Freedom Caucus.
MAGA has McCarthy by the short hairs. McCarthy can’t take a bathroom break without asking the Freedom Caucus for permission. So, guess who’s actually running Congress? De-facto House Speaker Donald J. Trump.
Few understood why Congressman Matt Gaetz and his band of merry Trump warriors embarrassed McCarthy for 15 excruciating rounds. It was all about extracting every last conservative MAGA concession from McCarthy. To make sure McCarthy understood that MAGA was his master.
Well, possibly, I guess. Certainly, that would be the only credible explanation for Trump fellating McCarthy during the Speaker-selection process I’ve heard proposed, especially after McCarthy had so egregiously stabbed Da Donald in the back over J6. Nonetheless, it’s all just a bit too much of the old Q-style “eleventy-D chess” wishful thinking for me to just gulp down whole. But t’is a consummation devoutly to be wished. In the final analysis, one can only shrug and mutter, “Hey, who the hell knows?”
Ha, I had just read that and was going to post a link but see you beat me to it. You peg leg fellows are fast…
Fantasy I suppose. OTOH, so far at least, there is certainly a change in the typical McCarthy operations. Unlikely to amount to a hill of beans, but at least it’s looking to be on the plus side.
