It soon became obvious that this was a campaign strategy. His enemies controlled the controlled the press, and accused Trump of being a publicity-seeking narcissist, but they gave him the coverage anyway in the hopes of destroying him.
Trump was playing 3-D chess. He outsmarted them all, and got elected.
Now Trump has been out of office for 1.5 years, and his name is in the NY Times about twice as often as President Biden. He still owns the press.
Liberal excitement is understandable. Mr. Trump faces potential legal jeopardy from the Jan. 6 investigation in Congress and the Mar-a-Lago search. They anticipate fulfilling a dream going back to the earliest days of the Trump administration: to see him frog-marched to jail before the country and the world.How many times will this story play out, before his enemies figure it out?
But the nightmare wouldn’t stop there. What if Mr. Trump declares another run for the presidency just as he’s indicted and treats the trial as a circus illustrating the power of the Washington swamp and the need to put Republicans back in charge to drain it?
There is an obvious risk: If Mr. Trump runs again, he might win.
There are no criminal accusations against Trump that would stick in court. It is all just dopey leftist salivating by his haters.
