One can sum up the post-election, post-POTUS Donald Trump in two familiar words: double down. He’s never admitted to anything, he’ll deny every accusation. And when he floats an idea that most reasonable people would poke holes in, he instead runs with it.
For example, he’s started talking about a Patriot Party (which apparently exists already? No matter.) to compete with the elephants and donkeys.
It’s too easy to suggest a jackass as its symbol. How about a sparrow? They invade the nests of other birds and push their eggs out in an effort to claim an abode they had no hand in making. They just come in and take over. Sounds like the kind of behavior Trump could relate to.
