Woah. I just had an insane thought.
Granted, this is just me thinking on my feet at this very moment, because it just occurred to me, BUT…
There was this group called the "Transition Integrity Project" that formed before the election last year and it was headed up by people like Rosa Brooks, Max Boot, Podesta, etc., and they were gaming out what would happen after four different potential outcomes of the election.
One of said outcomes was in the case of a Trump victory, Biden would also declare himself president and a coalition of states (California, Washington, and Oregon) would secede and form their own.
Well… Trump just formed the "office of the former president" right?
Perhaps he's starting to consider doing his own thing?
I mean… what's good for the goose, right?
Maybe it's time for mom and dad to divorce, before it gets even more messy. Will be interesting to see how it plays out.
I mapped out the Transition Integrity Project and the people involved with it and surrounding it. You can view the full graph at the link below. Each node can be clicked for images and more information and links. :)
It's been my labor of love… and autism. Enjoy!
