IF DONALD TRUMP WERE A TRAGIC PROTAGONIST...
I can imagine two types of ending.
One is YOU DON’T DESERVE ME, I QUIT.
The protagonist, feeling betrayed, quits but remains defiant. Secretly he hopes people will come crawling back, begging him to return, at which point he’ll have the satisfaction of telling them no.
The other is I’LL GO DOWN BUT I’LL TAKE THEM WITH ME.
Feeling that the opposition has him surrounded, the protagonist decides on a scorched earth policy, leaving as much destruction behind him as possible.
Both ways out leave him the option of believing that if only the people had backed him, he would have been great.
At the moment, it looks like the real Donald Trump is opting for the latter but I wouldn’t totally rule out a last-minute switch to You Don’t Deserve Me, I Quit.
How do YOU think this drama will end?
