RE: Trump scares the shit outta me
Never enough money.

He has his endorsement of another GOP candidate to sell. He has future books and TV shows to sell.

Unfortunately you may underestimate the amount of money that is thrown around in a US president campaign. There are literally billions of dollars in play. If Trump's function is to pull the GOP center to the right, so that an even more venal candidate can head the ticket, there can be hundreds of millions in that for Trump. And you definitely underestimate Trump's ego and ability to believe his own publicity. Sad

We have a system in which a quarter of the electorate may take absolute control of parliament. We have a system in which voter disinformation and outright expense fraud don't seem to matter to most people.

And yet, as long as we have an immediate example to lord over, we'll never have the impetus to do better...

... this is my signature!

We all now when Trump looses he's going to blame someone else, or not accept the count.

Obviously it would be because all those illegal immigrants illegally voted against him.
And "this is a sign that America is declining" or some such statement (I guarantee, I would put money on it, that he will say something to that effect.)

Could his ego even admit that he didn't win for any reason? I think he'll say he decided he quit because he had better things to do, like find a new network to air Apprentice.

Is he really that deluded?
No, he is not deluded. The more they attack Trump, the more people want to support him. The more he speaks the more people like it.

I believe he wants to make America great again. He is believable. Hilary is not. She is a Liar. Hilary, why did you wipe your server?
