Prepare yourselves for a mind-bending sci-fi/fantasy twist in the ever-evolving saga of Donald Trump. The spark for this imaginative journey was ignited by a headline on Mediaite, featuring Rick Wilson’s statement during an interview. He suggested that the MAGA faithful would vote for Trump “if he was dead or in jail — and even in those cases, he might win the primary.” Intrigued? Let’s dive into this alternate reality.
Picture this: What if Trump becomes embroiled in countless civil and criminal matters, and he’s inevitably headed for prison? What if, one day, he succumbs to one too many Trumpburgers, and the dreaded cholesterol takes him away from this realm?
You might think that’s the end, but hold on. What if, even in death, Trump still manages to win an election? What if his vice president, whoever that may be, takes charge but not quite in the usual way? By “not really,” we mean they start claiming to receive spiritual messages from the departed president.
Now, here’s where it gets truly bizarre. The MAGA faithful might transform their unwavering support into a full-fledged religion, with Trump as their deity. All it would take is a genius in artificial intelligence to create a couple of Trump holograms, appearing at different locations posthumously. And if he’s buried instead of cremated, just show an empty tomb, right? Wait for three days after his passing to announce that these divine visions have begun and that Trump prophesizes his eventual return. Are you still with us? Behold, Cheeto Jesus. The Religion.
You might find this concept utterly absurd, but consider this: If MAGA enthusiasts can be convinced to invest in money with Trump’s face on it, thinking it’s genuine currency, why wouldn’t they be open to following a vice president who claims to channel the wisdom of the departed? It’s a notion worth pondering.
In the words of Rick Wilson, who’s closely observing the political landscape: “I have to plan for the worst case scenario. The worst case scenario is that Donald Trump will be the nominee in the Republican Party once again.” He acknowledges that Trump still wields considerable influence within the party and that it’s a daunting challenge to get another candidate over the primary finish line.
So, in this wild sci-fi/fantasy scenario, the battle between Trump and his potential successors continues. The hope? To keep them fighting as long as possible, making it a brutal, noisy, and divisive spectacle. In this chaos, some “normie” Republicans might have to confront the harsh reality that the guy they thought would save them can’t. And although they may have grown weary of Trump, his alternative, like DeSantis, could present even more challenging choices. Thus, the battle rages on, with unforeseeable outcomes in this fantastical twist in the Saga of Donald Trump.
