We got a genre of near futurist speculation going right now that says the Trumpists will tear the country apart after he loses. This is the type:
Relax, people. A couple basic assumptions that need to be true for this to happen are wrong.
Such that a key feature of these scenarios is Trump starting a cable network, let’s recall: he’s not rich enough to start a real cable network and he’s incompetent. Ya know, maybe he could do what Beck did and put together a niche streaming media company, but I doubt it. Trump ain’t got the brains, or money, or energy of a younger man to do it. And he can’t appropriate Fox, they are going to wash their hands of him, I don’t think even Hannity will hang on to Trump.
The other assumption is the Trumpists are going to roam the country in armed, racist / insurrectionist mobs… No, that’s not going to happen. For so many reasons.
