Okay, hear me out...

In 2016, the ultra-greedy, short-sighted Trump only cared about one thing:

Sucking up to Russia to pave the way for the Trump Moscow Hotel and a $300+ mil. payday.

He didn’t care about the presidency. He actually wanted to lose.

1/
Trump, in his narcissistic, simplistic thinking, thought he was just laying the groundwork to capitalize on losing.

So, when Russia came along and said “Let’s work together....” Trump was happy to agree because he thought it was just buddying up to Putin.

2/
So when Russia offered dirt on Hillary, Trump happily says “thanks, you’re such a great partner...”.

...and then Russia says “How about changing your platform on the Ukraine?”

...and Trump says “Happy to, my friends!” thinking he’ll never be in office to folllw-through.

3/
So Trump was just taking the quids and promising the quos as a courtship of sorts.

He thought he was being smart.

Posturing like he’d bend over backwards for Russia without actually having to do anything... since he’d lose and not have to deliver.

4/
In Trump’s lizard brain, he’d think that was brilliant. His fantasy:

“I told them I’d do anything for them. I’d lift sanctions. I’d break up NATO. Whatever they wanted. I didn’t have to do any of it... but they were so happy, they gave me a big hotel deal. I’m a genius.”

5/
...but then he won. Russia delivered on their end of the bargain.

Then Trump was trapped.

No hotel. No $300 million. None of the goodies he wanted... and Russian partners who could put him and put him in prison if he didn’t pay up on his end of the deal.

6/
I dunno, I think this is all quite plausible.

Trump thought he was being a super slick grifter. Blowing smoke up the asses of his Russian friends. Setting them up to close the deal he wanted.

Then he ended up upside down with Putin calling to collect.

7/
Trump was working on his big Moscow deal right up to close to the election.

His plan was to win by losing... and then he lost by winning.

Now it’s all coming out and he’s sunk.

He’s just dumb enough for this crazy theory to be true. We’ll see.
