  • He won’t come back. He’s too old, and too damaged. He will soon have a half million dead on his watch. The economy is in ruins.
  • His megaphone is silent. He may try to create a new one, but it will not be the same. Without social media, he will devolve into absurd statements that please no one. The media will ignore him, we hope. He is a carnival barker without a bark. That alone will destroy him
