In new Bill O’Reilly book Donald Trump claims that when he leaves office he will have his revenge.

I don’t want to do a single thing to promote a book by Bill O’Reilly who I despise.

However I think this excerpt from the book that was shared over at the Washington Examiner is pretty telling. 

Here it is:

Asked how the two-year investigation “changed” his view of the country, Trump’s quotes don’t read like they’re coming from the lively person he is on TV. They read like they’re coming from someone weary or maybe even a little depressed.

He said the investigation “changed my life” and made him “more circumspect.”

“I’ve learned a lot,” he said. “I think this Mueller investigation will go down as one of my great achievements. Because the corruption would have never been uncovered. All these powerful people trying to subvert an election, people wouldn’t have known about it.”

By “these powerful people,” Trump is talking mostly about the collective national news media.

“I don’t know why they hate me,” he says. “I guess it’s because I’m an outsider. I did something no one else had ever done. It’s about power.”

O’Reilly asks Trump why he believes the media — “these powerful people” — are so “devious.”

“I think about it all the time,” he replies. But, he says, “In one way it’s positive. It shows that I can take it.”

Trump also said something he has said several times before, that the media will financially suffer when he’s gone. But he said in it in a different way in his interview with O’Reilly.

“You know, the media doesn’t care if they hurt families,” he said. But when I leave office, I’ll have my revenge. … Without Trump, what have they got?”

Now this could be written off as simply an empty threat by an egotist who truly belives that without him the media will have nothing to cover and will ultimately fail. 

However I remember that Trump talked about starting his own cable news station back when he did not really believe he was going to win the presidency, and think that is a more likely scenario for when Trump leaves office. 

Trump is addicted to being the center of attention and he will be a hot commodity once he loses in 2020, with multiple opportunities to give interviews.

But I think he wants more control over the narrative than that and will likely lend his name and image to some fledgling news outlet and make them his primary propaganda outlet.

Trump has already demonstrated disdain for Fox News and so I imagine he will attempt to steal the folks he likes like Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, and Steve Doocy and bring them over to his network. 

I actually think this was his plan all along and that the presidency, which he never thought he would win,  just got in the way. 

You watch and see if I’m not right.

    Something is fishy because I don’t believe Trump knows or uses the word ” circumspect”.

      ‘Circumspect’ is a Category-5 word. 😉

    I hope the media chases down Trump after he is out of office and America watches this failed president get prosecuted by the SDNY!

    I’m shaking in my boots at the very thought of it, dumb@ss.
    It will only go to prove that we, and those of equal mindset, were correct.
    Please proceed.

    A pundit on MSNBC or someplace said Trump only ran for President to garner publicity for a new book, and that he didn’t expect or even want to win.

    And of course it’s all about power with Trump. Yes, Gryphen, you are almost certainly right here, no need to watch and see.Try not to let it go to your head.

    OMG, I don’t want to hear another word from that buffoon once he leaves office and by revenge he means Hillary, Obama, Comey etc, not the media. The media got him elected by giving him free air time, billions of dollars worth of it, he owes the media.

      Exactly.

    I doubt he could get the big names from Fux News, they all know he’s a cheap chiseling phony, they’ll be making sure their contracts are fresh and tight.

    You have to laugh at his threats of ‘starving’ the media when he is finally kicked out of office. ‘Without Trump what have they got?” LMAO without the media it’s Trump that has nothing.

    Oh goodie, trump tv, I don’t think he has bankrupt a television network yet.

    He maybe surprised how few folks are willing to pay to watch him 24/7, because of course it is all about the money and he certainly is isn’t going to going to give away his “wisdom” for free.

    “The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee on Wednesday subpoenaed the Department of Homeland Security for documents that could shed light on President Donald Trump’s alleged offer of pardons to officials implementing U.S. immigration policy.”- ” press reports that the president offered pardons to officials should they face legal action for following his instructions to close a section of the U.S.-Mexico border, aggressively seize private property and disregard environmental rules in erecting a border fence.”
    “The dangling of pardons by the president to encourage government officials to violate federal law would constitute another reported example of the president’s disregard for the rule of law,”
