The latest reports on Trump’s post-presidency life explain how he has put himself at the cusp of criminal prosecution for living with no rules in Sad Barbie’s dream home.
The Washington Post reported:
A longtime Trump confidant has called his presence at Mar-a-Lago “sad,” where he seeks to recreate the pitfalls of the presidency. Comparing it to life in the White House, the person added, “It’s like a Barbie Dreamhouse in miniature.”
At night, Trump showed up for dinner, surrounded most nights by adoring club members who stood up and applauded his presence; after he finished his meal and rested for the night, they stood up again. He often orders special meals from the kitchen and spends his time curating the music that wafts through the crowd, often pushing the volume up or down based on his mood. In the Oval Office, Trump has a button he can press to summon an aide to bring him a Diet Coke or a snack. Now he can simply shout commands to any employee within earshot.

The article described Trump as more isolated than when he was president. Presumably, Putin launched Russia’s disastrous invasion of Ukraine in part because of his isolation and the lack of people around him who could say no.
Trump is out and completely isolated so no one rejects or blocks his bad ideas, and he is on the verge of criminal prosecution for mishandling and stealing classified information.
Donald Trump is a delusional figure living in his Barbie dreamhouse who thinks America still loves him because paying club members applaud him as he enters and exits the room.
The failed former president’s mental state appears to be more unstable than before, and his current life is evidence of why he should never be allowed to return to the White House.
