Americans Freaked Out After Trump Says He Expects to Be ‘Reinstated’ as President in August
Former President Donald Trump is apparently as sadly delusional as he was before he left office and reportedly believes he will be “reinstated” as president within the next two months, Raw Story reports.
That’s according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, who posted on Twitter:
“Trump has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August (no that isn’t how that works but simply sharing the information.)”

“He is not putting out statements about the ‘audits’ in states just for the sake of it,” she notes. “He’s been laser focused on them, according to several people who’ve spoken with him.”
But he is not putting out statements about the “audits” in states just for the sake of it. He’s been laser focused on them, according to several people who’ve spoken with him (as well as WaPo reporting a few weeks ago).

And Haberman notes Trump’s fanaticism with re-taking the White House is coinciding with the very real possibility that he may be indicted by the New York Attorney General’s office (we can only hope), as it continues its criminal probe of the Trump Organization for tax fraud.
Of course, it’s fun to remember Trump attorney Sidney Powell’s hamfisted attempts to “release the Kraken” lawsuits, which completely failed to overturn 2020 election results, even though they also incorrectly claimed Trump would regain the White House by the end of the year.
Really, this whole debacle is hilarious. There’s never been any credible evidence that the 2020 presidential election was stolen in any way and President Joe Biden is now occupying Trump’s former home.
While it really is laughable, it’s a bit worrisome when you consider how he was able to whip his followers into a dangerous riot on Jan. 6. It’s a relief that he’s been booted off social media. Most of us are well away from his delusional nonsense.
As we should be.
Twitter was rightfully freaked out:
I mean, even for him, good fucking lord. The ex-President is predicting/planning on a coup to put him back in office by the end of the summer. https://t.co/kSBzCdgLgo

He's a total madman. The Q people close to him have actually convinced him he gets the throne back. This is actually a perfect sad pathetic way for history to remember the loser. https://t.co/bPt3KDm3zP

It's a delusional fantasy, obviously, but it's a fantasy about a violent coup – which is really something from an ex-president. https://t.co/OYV716VMAy

Prepare for another violent attack from the MAGA terrorists.
Take this seriously. Do not write this off. They did it on 1/6 and didn't get their way. They *will* do it again. https://t.co/dXf76bind5

We should all be worried about this. Suggests his grip on reality is loosening even as his grip on the GOP is stronger than ever. https://t.co/rsKS50ZDtv

He can’t even get reinstated on Twitter. https://t.co/A8Dvv5A59N

He always believed every crackpot conspiracy on Loon Right Media. Now he believes he's going to be president in August. This is the leader of the Republican Party. https://t.co/IjGIJVI7IG

Delusional and ignorant – Trump reportedly telling people (a la Sydney Powell this weekend) that he will be reinstated by August. https://t.co/Vti3TT7oRG

This could lead to some dangerous reactions among the Trump cult. I hope this is taken seriously. https://t.co/EIRkYybKUu
