I think, as this goes on, you’ll see more Republicans come out and say move on. It may not be the most prominent ones, but it will be enough.

I’m actually not even stressed by this. I’m just enjoying watching the wheels come off. And it feels great to be on the other side of it after the 2016 election.

I’m not worried either, although it is dangerous that we have a President neglecting his duties even more during this interim period.

This might be what the GOP vanguard is worried about. The splitting of the party.

There needs to be some kind of legislation regarding integrity and honesty in broadcasting again. Some sort of modern day Fairness Doctrine, because this shit is out of control.

If he's going to do it online exclusively which it sounds like, he basically bypasses whatever poor regulations there are in place for actual networks.

I don't think that he'll be physically or mentally capable of running in 2024 but by sticking around he ensures that there will have to be at least one GOP candidate for 2024 who will have to sell his/her soul to the devil in order to get access to his voting group.

Not necessarily. A new Fairness Doctrine would clearly have to set new rules as to what qualifies as broadcast media.

Wouldn't stop him from spewing trash on his Twitter account but if he has more long form broadcast like shows then it could conceivably fall under the same rules.

He's also, ya know, terrible at business and would not have the backing of the american government anymore, so I have zero doubt that whatever he tried to do post election will end in bankruptcy, as literally everything else he's ever done has.

He's bad at business but this is really a stretch and implies that he'd have the dumbest lawyers ever (unfortunately there are still competent, but evil lawyers like Coney Barrett and I Love Beer).

So he'll make his digital empire a blog or something akin to that from which he will occasionally rant about this, that and the other thing and it won't be regulated anymore than TMZ or Perez Hilton. Maybe he even has an online forum where he can shoot the shit with all the people who got kicked off Reddit and other similar places.

Agreed. Like, for instance, not letting these morons be interviewed on your average cable news network in the interest of "both sides". Trump got to where he was in large part because the media gave him way too much airtime to spread his conspiracy nonsense. That needs to stop. There also needs to be more focus on social media continuing to minimize/flag/block/what have you misinformation and things of that sort.

My big hope is that Trump and his family will be too caught up in their legal woes to be able to (or hell, be allowed to) spend any time starting up any networks or putting out any books or social media outlets or whatever. Though I also agree with you that if Trump does try and start up his own media outlet, it'll fall into financial ruin pretty soon. Which would be rather hilarious to watch.

But yeah, in general, we need to do more to fight the right-wing media outlets that exist out there. Even if they don't get shut down, at the very least, the less power and reach their influence has, the better.

When Fox News is an SNL skit. Is that Don Jr?


Fox News’ Laura Ingraham interviews anonymous poll worker complete with disguised voice.

I mean this is probably Fox News challenging Trump to make his own network - “we can play Q too”
