Media giants paying Trump huge $$$ for being Trump
The biggest news networks in America are paying Trump. I estimate his paycheck is bigger than the total of US aid to the Ukraine.
They have to pay him; otherwise, they’d burst into flames, collapse, and roll downhill into the ocean and disappear under the waves.
Trump is their story, night and day. Number one, prime cut, headlined at the top of page one, leading every broadcast.
He’s keeping them alive.
Otherwise, what do they have? Climate change, the Ukraine, and the weather. Not big enough to pay their bills.
So they pay him.
I don’t know where he’s stashing the money. Maybe he’s buying farmland in China. Maybe he’s bankrolling a rocket to the moon. Maybe he’s secretly producing all kinds of shows for Netflix, Amazon, and Paramount. Maybe he’s investing in the New York Times. They’re always losing money.
If he’s convicted of any of the crimes on the current docket and goes to jail, he can still run for the Presidency. Imagine THAT story.
He can also win from jail. Try to wrap your mind around THAT one.
Apparently, he can also pardon himself for federal crimes. The state charges would be set aside until after he leaves office.
If I were the publisher of the NY Times, I’d be wrestling with the possibilities. On the one hand, I’m committed to the Democrats. Body and soul. On the other hand, Trump running and winning from prison and then pardoning himself—I mean, come on. That would be the most wrenching explosion of all time. A tree that never stops bearing fruit. I’d have to give Trump credit for sheer balls. Outrageously successful strategy. Mind-numbing self-inflation.
And let’s throw conservative websites into the mix. Their numbers would also go through the roof.
We’re not even talking about the riots across the country. The mass burning, looting, shooting, killing.
The Democrats wouldn’t just contest the election. They’d have kill teams positioned to take out any Trump appointee or aide trying to approach the White House.
Come to think of it, Trump wouldn’t be able to rule from the White House. Too naked a target. He’d have to run his Presidency from an undisclosed location. And he’d have to put together his own military force.
Media ratings would soar above soaring. They’d keep shoveling money at Trump for giving them the only story that keeps them alive.
(See, dear reader, I not only give you facts, I give you consequences, implications, realer than real.)
Now, suppose Trump picks Tucker Carlson as his running mate? Or just taps him for the job of press secretary? Tucker knows how to deliver the blister and the burn. So there HE is, at some other undisclosed location, doing live stream stand-ups, issuing declarations, stirring the pot.
There’s a whole new vein for media exploration and exploitation.
FOX—wow. That’s its own big-time soap opera. The people there don’t know whether to shit or go blind. Support President Trump or slice and dice him?
Trump records a country song. I was raised in a cabin in Tennessee and worked in a coal mine. It goes to number 1 on iTunes in ten minutes. It outsells the total of all Beatles’ tunes in half an hour.
753 studio biopic films about Trump are under production in two days.
Trump MERCHANDISE…Melania handles that franchise. Which is bigger than all religious merch in the world put together.
Facebook, X, Instagram, Tik Tok, and every other social media platform remove all restrictions against posting Trump material. They have to. It’s suddenly 80% of their business.
Trump is worst scumbag ever born. Trump is God. Back and forth, back and forth.
Little twerps like CNN and MSNBC are PRAYING right now that Trump goes to jail and Trump runs from jail and Trump wins from jail.
Their eyeballs are spinning at the prospect of huge dollars.
Matt Drudge can’t sleep at night. His mind is running hundreds of big black Trump headlines, day after day after day.
And the lawyers. Thousands of these grifters see themselves on television bloviating about jail and Trump and the Constitution.
The American economy IS roaring again. But not for the reasons Trump has promised/cited. Meaning: not because he’s actually DONE anything to build it up. No. The economy IS Trump. It’s based on Trump.
Half the country is doing gigantic amounts of psychiatric drugs, to help them deal with their hysteria and rage over Trump winning another term. And as all those people suffer the horrific effects of the meds, they have to run to hospitals—whose income soars. Dollars for pharma on the front end, dollars for E/Rs on the back end.
Some dickhead historian, who’s pulled down paychecks for 30 years writing fake biographies of Presidents, finally pens this: “OK, OK, I give up. This is Trump’s world and we’re all living in it.”
STORIES. The society and the civilization and the economy are built on stories. The other name for it is SHOW BUSINESS. For the past 8 years, and on into the future, THE story is TRUMP.
He figured out the game.
