It’s never been a secret that Donald Trump is a demented, narcissistic, dangerous human being. Four long, hard, tumultuous years with him behind the proverbial wheel of this nation was proof enough of that all on its own. We watched in collective horror and helplessness and the man destroyed this country as we knew it and everything it has ever stood for, from the inside out. Even nearly 2 years post-Trump administration, we are still reeling from his ongoing effect on this country, its people, and our own government.
But this… This was dark. This was dark, even for Donald Trump.
Everyone knows that the one-term, twice-impeached former president is currently staring down the barrel of the worst trouble he’s ever seen in his 76 years of life — from multiple different directions. The United States Department of Justice is closing in on him after the bombshell FBI search and seizure warrant that discovered countless boxes of highly-classified, top-secret government documents at his Mar-a-Lago resort turned post-White House home. New York Attorney General Letitia James is coming after his family and their company, the Trump Organization, full force with a mountain of legal peril and lawsuits. The Fulton County Georgia District Attorney’s Office has set its sights with no signs of stopping on Trump’s scheming plot to “find the votes” in the state of Georgia that would help him overthrow the 2020 presidential election and keep himself unrightfully in power. And that’s all just the tip of the iceberg.
And it’s clearer than ever that Trump feels the walls closing in on him, and he’s not handling the pressure well. At all.

Recently, Trump took to his Truth Social platform on the heels of the bombshell news that The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office would begin their criminal trial against the Trump Organization and the allegations of tax fraud between 2005 and 2021 would begin on Monday. News broke that the DA’s office charged the former president’s family business with nine counts of tax fraud, conspiracy, and various other criminal offenses in relation to falsified documents and records. Trump has not personally been charged with any crimes and his company has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Nevertheless, Donald Trump lost his temper in a way that we’ve never quite witnessed before.
In one of his most unhinged posts to date, the scandal-ridden former president appeared to go fully to the dark side, calling the United States “evil” and seemingly suggesting that Joe and Hunter Biden deserved the “electric chair.”
“The Witch Hunt continues, and after 6 years and millions of pages of documents, they’ve got nothing,” Trump raged on Truth Social in the early hours of Sunday morning. “If I had what Hunter and Joe had, it would be the Electric Chair. Our Country is Rigged, Crooked, and Evil – We must bring it back, and FAST. Next stop, Communism!”
We’ve reached a point in this nation where a former United States president is appearing to publicly call for the execution of his successor. I truly don’t even know what to say anymore…
