Nige was certain Trump would beat Democrat challenger Joe Biden, so certain that he let it be known he had wagered £10,000 on the outcome. And he lost. He also lost his cachet as someone with access to a serving President. Worse, there was the prospect that Trump was facing an impeachment trial and may be barred for holding office ever again.
So Farage had to not only defend Trump, but make himself sound knowledgeable and relevant. Sadly, he achieved none of these goals, starting with his claim “This is why impeaching Donald Trump is a mistake”. Yeah, right. Holding to account someone who incited the armed storming and trashing of the United States Capitol is a mistake.
Like heck it is. But do go on. And on he went to talk to fellow bigot Rowan Dean (still alleged to be editor of Spectator Australia, even after losing that lawsuit) on Sky News Australia, that well-known Antipodean variant on Fox News Channel (fair and balanced my arse), asserting that Republicans who want to dump Trump are “making the biggest mistake of their political careers”. Yeah, why bother saving their party from wipeout, eh?
And while he was in pretend mode, Mr Thirsty pretended something else - that Trump has some kind of Presidential legacy, other than that of a chiselling gangster. “I will be posting a new video on the Trump legacy later today … Watch my thoughts on the Trump Legacy” he pleaded. What legacy? Tax cuts for the rich, his followers dishonestly gaslighted into believing the election was stolen, a country divided, Covid-19 almost ignored.
So that’s For Some Value Of Legacy, then. Still, there were still media appearances, weren’t there? Well, if you count a chat with dribbling bigot Mike Graham at Murdoch noise floor occupant TalkRADIO, maybe there are. Here, Nige told anyone not yet asleep that the Democratic Party had been taken over by The New Hard Left. This means that THE SQUAD got re-elected to Congress, and added two new members. Yay The Squad!
Not going too well, was it? And it got worse, as Farage desperately blubbered “There are media reports that the bust of Winston Churchill has been removed from the Oval Office. If true, this is a slap in the face to the British and any prospects of good relations”. Who gives a flying foxtrot what he thinks? And as to that photo he posted, well.
James Doleman pointed out that Nige had posed “While standing in front of a portrait of George Washington, who carried out a successful armed insurrection against the British Crown”. One last pointless gesture from Mr Thirsty? You got it. "Trump’s greatest legacy is that he restored faith and trust in politics. He made promises and kept them”. Master, how far shall I tell him to Fuck Off? Trump spent four years lying his head off. End of.
That desperation tells you all you need to know. Nigel Farage is irrelevant at home with his pals protesting about Covid restrictions while the death toll skyrockets, and he’s even less relevant in the USA now Trump has gone. All that hot air and no-one listening. Sad!
