A Bad Beat is a poker term for a hand in which a player with very strong cards loses to an opponent who is statistically unlikely to win, but hits a lucky card (or two) and unexpectedly takes the pot. The losing player is then said to have suffered a “bad beat”. In looking at the 2016 Presidential election some may say Hilary Clinton suffered a bad beat. But the reality is the bad beat went to Donald Trump.
Trump who I firmly believed right up to Election Day expected to lose had mapped out with others (Roger Ailes?) how to turn this presidential run into post election BIG MONEY. But then the unthinkable happened he won. All the big money dreams derailed but worst now there would be a huge spotlight on everything crooked he was involved in. From the moment he watched as FOX NEWS, what other channel do you think he was watching, declared him the winner he went defensive. Lying and doing one over the top thing after another to distract America as he tried cover up his actions in an attempt to stay one step ahead of what he knew was coming for him, the truth and likely jail time for him, his friends and his family.
His Shaggy defense of say it wasn’t you has kept his base at bay but his lies, deceit and attempts at cover ups haven’t protected many of his friends who, Rodger Stone aside, when faced with prison turned on him. While slowly it has begun to drive people who originally were in his corner, mostly for their own good, away. More and more isolated his act gets crazier and crazier and as such more dangerous for the United States.
Hopefully we are coming to a conclusion in which Trump, however it may happen, resigns or is impeached from a position of power he was never qualified to hold and probably really never really wanted. After all with Trump like everything else it was just supposed to be about the money. A bad beat indeed for Donald.
