Donald Quixote is tilting at windmills
Donald Quixote took the occasion of the first release of the Twitter Files to once again mount his horse in pursuit of his Impossible Dream of either being installed as President or at the very least, getting a 2020 do-over.
Señor Quixote, the Man of La Mar-a-Lago went on Truth Social, lance in hand, to tilt at windmills:
Yes, well. That isn’t at all insane, is it?
Donald Quixote charging headlong at our Constitution wasn’t on my bingo card.
Of course, it’s absolute lunacy and Donald Quixote’s lance won’t come within a mile of unseating our Constitution.
Though, with ludicrous remarks like this, Donald Trump will easily unseat Hillary Clinton to become the World’s Biggest Sore Loser.
The revelations from Matt Taibbi’s Twitter Files thread did not in any way, shape, manner, or form support the idea of blowing up our entire Constitutional Republic all so Donald can return to the White House.
And while he might defeat Hillary for the title of World’s Biggest Sore Loser, if Trump keeps this nonsense up, he’ll be easy to defeat in the 2024 Republican primary.
The fact is, Donald Quixote isn’t so much tilting at windmills as he is burning them to the ground.
Trump has grown so fixated on the 2020 election that he is willing to set fire to every windmill and blow up every bridge in his quest for payback.
At this point, the Democrats and the media won’t have to lift a finger to destroy Donald Trump. All they have to do is stay out of the way while he provides them with all the ammunition they need to do it.
In a Twitter thread yesterday, Dave Reaboi made this astute observation:
Why did the Dems co-opt “democracy,” emptying the word of its meaning and replacing the definition to suit their ends? Because it’s something Americans have long had a positive association with. It’s branding.
The Constitution is also something Americans love; even those who want to change it are smart enough to try to co-opt it, or speak about it reverentially. For almost a century, even despotic regimes globally felt they needed to have a constitution because it conferred legitimacy.
Allowing your enemies to paint you—and truthfully!! in your own words!!—as a proponent of ditching the Constitution isn’t just an insanely bad messaging problem. It’s like you’re trying really hard to alienate as many normal, sane people as possible.
In short, much like the “My Dinner with Anti-Semites” incident, Donald Quixote once again stepped on his dick.
On Saturday, responding to the release of Part 1 of the Twitter Files, Jesse Kelly tweeted:
The efforts to keep Donald Trump from being elected, remove him once he was elected, and prevent him from being elected again have done more to damage this country than anything in American history.
There is not a single thing about that statement with which I disagree.
And when someone replied to Jesse’s tweet, asking if he agreed with Trump’s outlandish Truth Social post, Jesse had this to say:
No. That’s insane. It’s also going to cost him the primary if he keeps it up. That doesn’t change the fact that the efforts to remove him have accelerated the decline of America unlike anything else. Both can be true.
And that is precisely the point.
You can acknowledge that the media, Big Tech, the Democrat Party, and even the FBI colluded to destroy Donald Trump while at the same time acknowledging that Donald Trump is damaging himself by spending the last two years perseverating on his defeat and indulging in every kooky conspiracy theory that comes over the transom.
Worse still, his obsession hasn’t just damaged him. That’s the problem.
His fixation has damaged the country.
Donald Quixote’s Stolen Election obsession led to Republicans losing the Senate in the 2021 Georgia runoffs, hundreds of ordinary citizens getting arrested and jailed over a stupid riot, a two-year-long show trial in the House, an entire media and Democrat campaign to smear ordinary Americans as “domestic terrorists,” and a Midterm Red Wave election becoming a Red Dribble.
In a nutshell, his obsession handed the Democrats, Big Tech, and the media even more ammunition in their ongoing effort to silence and destroy their political opposition.
At this point, I can’t help but ask, if Donald Trump wanted to make sure the Democrats hold onto power, what would he be doing differently?
The man just announced his 2024 campaign not even three weeks ago, and rather than focusing on the issues that matter to voters, he’s spending all his time and energy tilting at windmills while hemorrhaging supporters and dragging down the rest of the Republican Party.
Judging by his behavior since his official announcement, I’m beginning to suspect that Donald Trump doesn’t really want to run for president again.
At the rate he’s going, by the time we get to the Iowa Caucus, even a knob like Larry Hogan will do better than Donald Quixote.
There won’t be any need for a super-secret grand RINO masterplan by Paul Ryan and billionaire donors to take Trump out of the running.
Why should they bother when Trump seems hell-bent on taking himself out one unhinged rant at a time?

President Trump appears to be coming apart at the seams. I am so disappointed with his conduct in the last month. He has done more damage to himself than 6 years of media lies & attacks against him.
So the massive fraud of the 2020 elections doesn’t threaten our constitution? The abject lawlessness on display by our government has no effect on our constitution? Our constitution has been trampled on for years and no one cares, but let President Trump state the obvious, that the un-addressed lawlessness rampant in our federal government has rendered the constitution null and void? OMG! My hair is on fire! Unelected bureaucrats, rouge “intelligence” agencies and fifth column journalist are destroying this nation but let’s all dump on Trump for stating the obvious and upsetting my delicate sensibilities.
It’s a flat-out lie that no one cares. Many of us still revere the Constitution and consistently oppose the way it has been overlooked or outright violated by asshole politicians who crap all over it to achieve power. I don’t care if those asshole politicians are Democrat or Republican. Trump wants to crap all over it to regain power, so as far as I’m concerned, he’s just as shitty as Biden, so he can get lost.
Of course our government is corrupt & compromised by China. Of course the Democrats cheated in 2020 & 2022. Its what they do .Sadly I dont think we will get it back. Donald Trump ran on draining the swamp, but he found out it wasn’t that easy.
But with this-Its how he goes about it. In the last month he has:
1 Publicly trashed candidates he supported- who lost
2 Came off sounding very petty with his public griping about the midterms results.
3 Had dinner with Nazi’s (validating “very fine people” for some folks) Where the hell were his people on that deal? You dont just bring uninvited guests to meet a former president. Somebody had to know.
4 Decreed that, rules be damned- he should be installed as President immediatly.
All of this is extremely un-presidential & has made him look childish. He has done to himself what the Democrats & the media could not do for 6 years. He damaged himself politically.
If he is the nominee in 2024, I will support him. But I feel like he has not done himself any favors with his base. Stuff like this leaves bad taste in peoples mouths & is beneath him
I agree with “Biggyrat” and that is because you cannot even mention “rigged election” without people spilling their blatant hatred of Trump that he lost and that’s it tough shit. The real point is “What is being done to prevent this from happening EVER again”? I believe most people identify with the fact that something was definitely suspicious when ALL the swing states shut their polls down with Trump in the lead or much closer than when the polls reopened. There are obvious other examples and no I dont have them all in my closet of conspiracy theory’s but there was definitely something amiss in 2020 and with all the videos of January 6th showing police/security ushering in people during all the turmoil this is a blatant set up but still where and when is real “Justice” going to prevail? I agree Trump is shooting himself in the foot and mouth but I would be fuming as well knowing fully well cheating went on and there is nothing being done. How do we as voters trust again? I am from Arizona and I still do not believe we are a blue state. I am surrounded by red supporters and I just dont see it.
Thank you for your time.
People might not be so different in what they consider stupid behavior, but their opinions range widely on what forms of stupidity they consider acceptable.
DJT has been right far more often than he’s been wrong, but he tends to forget that one little “Aw, shit!” wipes out a thousand attaboys.
Thank you Biggyrat!!! Took the words right out of my mouth! Trump believes in and respects the Constitution and believes it should not be stomped on by any person or political party, which of course the Demonrat party has always done, especially since 2020. The fraud committed in 2020 should NEVER be forgotten. Thank God for Donald Trump and Elon Musk.
No one, and I mean nobody, has done more for the rank and file citizens of this country than Donald J. Trump. It is no longer a theory, but a fact that the 2020 election was rigged and stolen. Having said that, it is my considered opinion that Pres. Trump has every right, as any other patriot, to say what he is thinking. If you do not believe Trump won and this election was stolen from him, put some $7 gas in your Bentley and drive on over to the DNC and get yourself signed up for the next election. I question many politicians, because their track records speak for themselves. But I will never question the wisdom of a man with the accomplishments of DJ Trump.
I don’t blame Trump at all for being mad. They tried to rig 2016 but failed, they tried Russian collusion, impeachment twice, and anything else they could think of to get rid of him. They won in 2020 due to massive fraud that no Judge would hear evidence. Hundreds of sworn affidavits claiming election fraud and none investigated. Video evidence has shown “mules” filling ballot drops. But no cares enough to do anything. It’s enough to make one believe the whole system is rigged. Ten years ago, I would never have thought such a thing could happen in the U.S.A., now I’d have to see proof the system is not rigged to believe in honest elections. The whole thing makes me mad as hell.
