And do you know what? He’s probably right.

At the White House and inside the Trump campaign, there remains a stubborn, almost defiant sense of optimism — born, they believe, out of experience — that the president will win in November.

But Trump Jr. is apparently worried. “Don’s the only person who thinks they’re going to lose,” says a prominent conservative activist who is in regular contact with him and other key members of Trump’s political operation. “He’s like, ‘We’re losing, dude, and we’re going to get really hurt when we lose.’” An electoral defeat in November, Trump Jr. fears, could result in federal prosecutions of Trump, his family and his political allies. He has told the conservative activist that he expects that a Biden administration will not participate in a “peaceful transition” and instead will “shoot the prisoners.” (“This is 100 percent false,” Surabian says. “Don does not have these concerns.”)

Even assuming his worst fears aren’t realized, a Trump defeat in November would pose an existential question for Trump Jr. He has become a figure of genuine political value, but that value remains mostly a function of his status as the premier surrogate for his father.

Of course, the Trump folks are denying that Junior thinks like this, but as we have said repeatedly in the past three and a half years, that just gives the story more validity. 

I actually think that a lot of he Trump family members think along these lines and they must be just about freaking out as we move closer and closer to the November election. 

Personally I can hardly wait to see what happens to this band fo grifters once daddy dearest is no longer in a position to protect them. 

I just wonder how long it will take them to turn on each other, and who will be the first to go full Benedict Arnold on the others?
