Ask A Genius 475 – The Next While in Crazyville’s Villa

December 16, 2018

[Beginning of recorded material]

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: Where does this leave real knowledge of the situation?

Rick Rosner: There are plenty of reasonable opinions, which means nobody knows what’s going to happen exactly.

But it is reasonable to think that all these investigations mean that Trump will not get re-elected. His approval currently runs at about 42 percent, which is a crazy high number for a guy as bad as he is. He thought earlier this week; he got pissed that Michael Cohen was going to prison.

Mueller issued two more memos about ongoing investigations. Trump did not even show up to work one day this week on Wednesday. Even though, he lives in the place where he works. All he had to do was put on a robe and slippers and go downstairs, but he stayed upstairs all day sulking.

I do not think that has ever happened before in the history of the presidency; that a president takes a sulk day. I mean everything is completely nuts. and the Republicans and Trump’s base, which include lots of faithful Christians, are pretending that this is okay.

It means that even after Trump fails to be re-elected, if he does fail to be re-elected; this will probably by then be one quarter to one-third of the country. They won’t go away. That strain of nationalism, xenophobia, and anti-science.
