Trump in the Oval Office, Noon, Jan. 20th

Tuesday, January 5, 2021

Today there is an election in Georgia for two seats in the Senate, and one can examine last-minute polls for possible outcomes. There is no poll being taken that I know of about what will happen two weeks from tomorrow. Perhaps bookmakers in Las Vegas are taking bets on various scenarios. If so, here’s one I’m willing to be a hundred dollars on:

At noon, on January 20th, 2021, as Joseph Biden is being sworn in by Chief Justice John Roberts, Donald Trump will conduct a live-stream internet twitter-storm of himself at the desk in the Oval Office. In fact, this will have been going on since 6 a.m. on January 20th.

“I am still the president, and there is much work to be done. I am here in the Oval Office, which is where the President should be, working on behalf of Americans, and I will remain here, since I won the election.” and blah blah blah.

I predict that Trump will still be “working” in the Oval Office until Secret Service personnel in charge of guarding President Joseph Biden show up and request that he vacate the premises. Trump will be wearing a body-camera to record the entire process of his exit.

All of this video will be used by Mr. Trump to stir up his followers and to continue soliciting funds for his re-election in 2024.

Final prediction: When Trump is asked in a subsequent interview why he did not attend Biden’s swearing-in ceremony, he will claim that Biden’s assistants told him that wearing a mask was mandatory, and he said that he was still president and would not wear a mask.
