What Ever Happened to Donald Trump?
Just months after leaving office, the former president has all but disappeared.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



It’s unlikely that Donald Trump will be calling Bill Clinton up to commiserate, not that Clinton would take the call. But if somehow they connected, the two men might find they had something to discuss. Although making any statements about Trump’s relative irrelevance feels like tempting fate, he has remained unexpectedly peripheral since leaving office. You’re not imagining it.  The Washington Post ’s  Philip Bump showed recently  that Google search interest and cable-news images of Trump have both returned to roughly where they were before he ran for office. Only cable-news mentions remain significantly elevated, but even they have dropped steeply

Trump and his supporters are totally on topic.

My guess is that real republicans will be happier than democrats real or not when Bubble-Boy finally bursts into oblivion.

Never underestimate a megalomaniac. Especially a wounded one.

He finally found a big enough rock and crawled under it.  Grub Hub brings him his daily fix of KFC, Big Macs, and Diet Cokes.

Didn’t he call for a boycott of Coca-Cola? What a self sacrifice.

He is a "do as I say not what I do" type.  Just as he encouraged the Capitol riot but did not march there with his magats as he promised, he is probably still guzzling his Diet Cokes or disguising them as other soft drinks.

I hate to burst anyone's bubble, but Donald Trump is a mentally ill malignant narcissist who is addicted to attention.  The only way he "goes away" is when he dies. 

It is up to his followers as to whether or not he will stay at the top of politics. My guess at this point is that he will.

The only thing Trump would have to do to be back on top, at least in the eyes of his followers, is announce a "rally" tour. And of course then follow through with it.

The rally tour of course would really be another grifting tour.....

His military background and education is quite an achievement...

DeSantis received his Reserve Naval officer's commission and assignment to the Judge Advocate General's Corps (JAG) in 2004 at the U.S. Naval Reserve Center in Dallas , Texas, while still a student at Harvard Law School. He completed Naval Justice School in 2005. Later that year, he received orders to the JAG Trial Service Office Command South East at Naval Station Mayport , Florida, as a prosecutor. In 2006, he was promoted from lieutenant, junior grade to lieutenant . He worked for the commander of Joint Task Force-Guantanamo (JTF-GTMO), working directly with detainees at the Guantanamo Bay Joint Detention Facility . [15] [16] [17]

In 2007, DeSantis reported to the Naval Special Warfare Command Group in Coronado, California , where he was assigned to SEAL Team One and deployed to Iraq [18] with the troop surge as the Legal Advisor to the SEAL Commander, Special Operations Task Force-West in Fallujah . [15] [16] [17]

DeSantis returned to the U.S. in April 2008, at which time he was reassigned to the Naval Region Southeast Legal Service. The U.S. Department of Justice appointed him to serve as an Assistant U.S. Attorney [18] at the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Middle District of Florida . DeSantis was assigned as a trial defense counsel until his honorable discharge from active duty in February 2010. He concurrently accepted a reserve commission as a lieutenant in the Judge Advocate General's Corps of the US Navy Reserve . [19] He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal , the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal , the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and the Iraq Campaign Medal . [15] [16] [17]

Only losers would think different.

Just so everyone is clear, he was awarded the both the Bronze star and Navy & Marine Corps Commendation medals for meritorious service.  Both commendations can be awarded for valor, heroism or meritorious service.

He's got a solid military career he should be proud of as a JAG officer.

Some are so easily impressed.

DeSantis is such a loser.

I look for donny to try to make a come back soon. The longer he's out of the spotlight spewing his lies the less effective and less powerful trump becomes.
