              Now that the election is over, to paraphrase Richard Nixon, we won’t have Donald Trump to kick around any more. And even though he has some plans to remain involved in political affairs, the last thing the GOP will need in 2024 is a candidate who lost the popular vote in 2020 by twice as many votes as he got in 2016.

              So, like every other former President, Trump is going to have to figure out some kind of legacy to burnish and sustain his memory.  Sorry Donald, but the spaces on Mount Rushmore are already filled. And there really isn’t enough room on the Mall to put up another Washington Monument or a Lincoln Memorial.

              Most Presidents, beginning with Woodrow Wilson, have a library which houses both their papers as well as various gifts and other shlock they collected during their White House years.  Maybe Trump will put together some kind of Presidential museum at Mar-a-Lago that might even contain a small shelf for his papers – uhhh, it’s not as if he was literate enough to produce anything beyond those phony Executive Orders that he kept signing all the time.

              But there’s a movement out there to create what I believe would be the perfect memorial to mark the Trump Presidency, namely, a petition being sent to the U.S. National Park Services to add the Four Seasons Total Landscaping site to the National Archive of Historic Places. The sponsors are looking for 5,000 signers, they already have 4,860 and maybe they’ll increase the number of people who can add their names.

              The highlight of that crazy press conference was when the owner of Fantasy Island, the porn shop across the street, came out of his establishment and told reporters that “We knew there had to be a screw-up somehow, because why would you pick a spot like this?”

              If for some reason the Park Service doesn’t believe that the parking lot in front of a garage door plastered with MAGA posters isn’t an appropriate national historic site, maybe we should start a petition to put a plaque on the 120 miles of wall that was built between the U.S. and Mexico to secure a border which is 1,900 miles long. Or maybe the Service should put a plaque at one of the golf courses where Trump played golf more than 300 times during the 1,408 days that he has been President so far.

              I just signed the petition to designate the Four Seasons Landscaping address as an historic site. I also chipped in a few bucks to get the petition around.

              Please join me and help create a fitting monument to the man who will shortly no longer be President of the United States.

Trump Concede? When Did He Ever Behave Like A Mensch?

              Yesterday my wife walked into a mini-mart and bought some drinks and snacks for our Sunday drive. She came up to the counter, and told the young man running the shop that she was in a good mood because Biden had won. To which the kid replied, “Well, say goodbye to Orange Man,” and he laughed.

              In the column I posted yesterday, I referenced an article in The New York Times about a 27-year old kid who not only voted for Trump, but would continue to push his Presidency even after everyone agreed that he has lost.

              The liberal media has published I don’t know how many stories about how and why young people and people of color support Trump. After all, younger folks and minorities are supposed to be liberals, so when we dig up a conservative activist who’s under 30 or isn’t a White male, that’s really big news, right?

              When was the last time The New York Times or any other liberal media venue went out and asked a young kid why he didn’t like Trump? I didn’t notice anyone from CNN or MSNBC interviewing the TikTok gang when the kids blasted Trump’s hotline that asks people to call in with examples of voter ‘fraud,’

              Despite all the hot air about ‘fake news,’ the liberal media has gone out of its way to give Trump the benefit of every doubt. They cover his tweets as if they represent news, which only amplifies the size of the audience reached with that crap. They repeat without the slightest demur descriptions of Trump being ‘enraged’ or ‘angry’ whenever things don’t go his way, as if the President’s personal mood should be a basis for judging what the Administration does or doesn’t do.

              I should note, however, that the media did cover the last press conference held by anyone representing the White House, an event staged by Rudy Giuliani on Saturday that was billed by Trump as going off at the swanky Four Season Hotel. The only problem was that the press meet actually took place (thanks Paula) in the parking lot behind  an outfit that cuts grass  and is called the Four Seasons Total Landscaping Company. This is what the venue looked like when the event began:

              Incidentally, the Four Seasons Total Landscaping Company began selling merchandise on its website today to at least make a few bucks off of the White House press event. One of their items is a sticker which reads, ‘Make America Rake Again.’  If they start selling a shirt, I’m an XL and I’ll buy more than one.

              After Giuliani repeated the same list of so-called voting frauds that have been thrown out of every court, he then introduced a young man who claimed to have been a poll watcher for the Trump campaign but wasn’t allowed to see the ballots as they came in. “It’s such a shame. This is a democracy,” the young man named Daryl Brooks said.

              What Mr. Brooks didn’t way was that he was a convicted sex offender who did three years in jail for sexual assault, lewdness and endangering the welfare of a minor – no big deal. He also claimed to have run for various political offices, including the U.S. Senate and a seat in the U.S. House.

              Having this guy at the press conference was rather fitting because directly across the street from where he and Rudy were standing is a porno shop. I assume this store will also soon stock some merchandise to commemorate the big day:

              The latest word coming out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is that the Trump campaign is planning to hold some election-style rallies to push back on the idea that Joe is the President-Elect. It’s not clear whether Trump himself will show up at these events or where they’ll be held, but the program will include the reading of obituaries of people who allegedly voted last week.

              I have to assume that when Rudy got back to the White House, the first thing he did was to rush into the Oval Office to tell Trump that he’s ready to make a deal with a guy who can give him a bunch of names of dead people that can be used to prove voter fraud.

              Who’s Rudy’s new business partner? The guy who owns the cremation center that is also across the street from where Saturday’s press conference was held.

It’s been a great week, hasn’t it?
