Stephanie steps forward to complete the parody on Trump's post-presidency.

Trump then retreats to the one property he retained, Mar-a-Lago, also in decline after he leaves the White House. The high-end crowd abandons him and Mar-a-Lago now only draws crowds of tourists from cruise ships docked in Miami and Ft Lauderdale. It is especially popular with tourists from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. To help protect his privacy and security, and to discourage Mexicans from entering a dangerous place, Mexico generously offers to pay for a wall around Mar-a-Lago.

Then, always on the alert for an opportunity to make a quick buck, no matter how grimy, Trump shrewdly converts Mar-a-Lago into a different high-end enterprise, a business right up his alley--a business made possible by a new law. In 2021 Florida legalizes prostitution, as in Nevada. Trump promptly turns Mar-a-Lago into a luxury brothel. He brags that Mar-a-Lago will be the biggest and best whorehouse on the planet. The brothel gives Ivanka a most welcome new retail opportunity after the sharp decline of her businesses following her father's defeat. She sees a chance for a clean start with a line of sex toys.

The golf course, no longer the playground of the rich and superstar golfers, becomes an attraction for a new clientele. Trump launches a successful advertising campaign in "the failing" New York Times. He chooses the Times because, as he well knows, it is anything but failing, enjoying one of the largest circulation of newspapers in the United States--and has a worldwide outreach. Its subscribership and profitability are reaching new highs. The Times ad goes viral on social media, making additional advertising unnecessary. The ad says: "Come to Mar-A-Lago and score birdies with your putts on the greens and a hole in one with your putz in the play house." The Trump brothel has a six-month waiting list.

The sycophants are so intoxicated by the aphrodisiac of power that they don't have the slightest notion of how they will be excoriated for generations once the Trump administration is gone. And they may have passed the point of no return for waking up.

You mention excoriation for generations, Perhaps your optimism is warranted. I believe the Trump administration may be the end.
