There is this person out there, whose name shall not be mentioned, who says this election is "Kayfabe".  What is that, this Kayfabe?  Briefly stated, it means fake.  Basically, the argument goes that Trump just pretends to run against Hillary, and his payoff will be an enhanced brand name.  Trump gets richer as a result.  Hillary gets the presidency.  Hillary was to be president all along.  Fake.  A conspiratorial fake, at that.

If you are convinced by this argument, then what?

As I wrote before, you vote for Trump anyway.   If he is in a conspiracy to make Hillary president, then to defeat that, you deny her the office.  If he doesn't want the office, you deny Trump his brand name enhancement, provided that he never intended to do anything he claims that he wants to do--- which is to "Make America Great Again".

Trump would have to deal with the problems, even if he doesn't want to.  Get it?  He can't back out if he is elected.  I thought that one through.  He pisses off everybody, he is defenseless against what is going to be coming his way.  He won't have Hillary to give him cover until it all blows over because she isn't in the Oval Office.  The only one to give Trump cover would be Trump himself.

In other words, he will have to produce in order to keep his enemies at bay.  If he screws up, they will go after him.  He may even face jail time.  He doesn't have the GOP apparatchiks there to help him.  They don't like him anyway.  The Democrats don't like him, either.  In fact, Trump would be in trouble from all sides.  He will have to work with both sides and try to bring them together if for no other reason than self-preservation.  He will have to produce.

So, Kayfabe doesn't convince me to change my plans.  That is, I am not convinced that it is true, and even if it were true, it still doesn't make any difference to me.

Hillary shouldn't be president.  Period.
