Donald Trump: A Lifelong Ponzi Scheme

Basically with a Ponzi scheme there is no there there.

This has always been the essence of Donald J. Trump’s entire master BS life. The Trump con of course was to convince banks and the sophisticated, along average Joes, that he is a super wealthy, highly successful businessman.

It didn’t matter that he was clueless about most things and therefore every venture was a failed venture, because on the other hand he was such a fantastic self-promoter (compulsive liar) that there was always some bank, international mobster organization or Russian sponsored agency willing to bail him out, but eventually all Ponzi Type Schemes come crashing down. Donald’s fatal mistake was in becoming president. Yes, ironically it is the panicle of his seeming success that will undo the Donald.

Of course Mr. Trump never really wanted the normally taxing job of being president of the United States, but he just couldn’t resist the limelight that would pour over him in running for that most prestigious office. And so fate stepped in to the amazement of some and the horror of many when through the vagaries of the Electoral College, an opponent saddled with much political baggage, an effect dose of voter suppression gimmicks, and Putin excited to shill for a man of a kind made to cause all sorts of problems for his arch rival the good old US of A formed the perfect storm to put Trump into the White House.

Unfortunately for the lifelong conniver, Trump, there is no place to hide for an American president. And so for all the corner-cutting and shady deals that compose the Donald’s life addiction, he has now been tossed into the bright light of a full-blown government probe. The end to his phony empire of tacky glitz, support by his cocksure bombast is about to hit the skids. The invincible one will soon be toast, for even the greatest Ponzi schemer of them all must end up the same as the rest. The hard really for Mr. Trump is that there is no one left who cares to bail him out. Indeed, his Ponzi scheme has just about run its course.
