    I have never agreed to this idea of not pointing to malice those things that can be simply explained by stupidity because I really think those forces (malice and stupidity) are two balanced forces so I'm not sure how much is really believing bullshit and how much is just the moral misery of claiming things you know are false but I sincerely hope for the future of humanity that at least half the accounts in Trump's Twitter feed are bots because if they really are persons the Planet of the Apes dystopia is already here....in 30 years we are slaves to the chimps.

    So start buying bananas just in case.

    Attention.

    That's what it's always been about. The attention. The ratings. The rallies.

    And the very second Biden is sworn in, Biden will be the President who got the most votes ever. Trump's "record" is doomed.

    Referring to OANN. And, yes, instantly flagged.

    Oh, and the Chicago Tribune and others have already refuted that fraudulent story.
    Dominion? Thought they were in Gamma Quadrant still, rather than here making Trump lose. I guess antifa is Jem'hadar then?

    I've always been a firm believer in Hanlon's razor. Malice and stupidity are completely different things, even though they sometimes inhabit the same body. stupidity is far, far, far more common than malice, however.

    and genius is that genius has its limits."

    I would love to see Trump try. In the last 10 years, FOX News made as much profit each year as Donald Trump is worth total. Nobody will loan Trump money regardless, but adding to that, nobody would loan someone the money to take on FOX News. A failed media company is worth zero and therefore makes shitty collateral. And Trump is leveraged beyond the orange ("beyond the pale" but for Trump) on everything else he owns.

    I think what we'd end up with is a YouTube or FB series of videos.
    I believe I mentioned this before, but I read that many advertisers do shy away from Fox. Well, mainly the nightly shows cause they are too controversial. The big money is Fox news is part of every basic cable package and they have some sweet deal where they get $5-8$, forgot the exact number, in each package. So if you have cable and hate Fox you still giving them that sweet, sweet money.

    Not trying to break it down too much but trying to generate revenue for Trump tv will be something. No way is he getting on cable. So yeah people would have to quit cable to just watch Trump. Anyways probably too deep of a business discussion.

    To be fair the video quality is poor and I thought he was just hopping around on his enlarged prostate made worse through mass consumption of fast foods.

    He plans on doing digital only according to reports...

    It will be interesting to see if Fox finally does turn on him completely and Republicans fracture fully. Murdock is sick of his shit.

    My assumption is that Trump will simply buy OANN once out of office and rebrand it to Trump TV.

    With what money I have no idea.

    With the millions he is grifting from his supporters for a fake Legal Defense Fund.

    While our campaign finance laws are currently garbage, that's a bit of a stretch. A PAC can't buy a media station.

    I have a feeling that's going to turn into a REAL Legal Defense Fund once he leaves office. Plenty of people lined up with lawsuits once the protections of the office aren't in place.

    He could always transfer money from the PAC to himself, like his inauguration slush fund.

    Is it legal? Hmm, probably not. But it is a possibility.

    With what money? He's got hundreds of millions in loans that are coming due.

    No US bank will touch him.
    Deutche Bank is looking to drop him and the debt he owes them.

    He doesn't have a ton of liquid assets, given that he always talks about his wealth through his properties.

    He won't buy them, he'll license his "Trump" brand to them and get paid for it, probably.

    Since when has Trump ever let silly things like "What he wants to do is illegal" stop him?
