Remember the scene? Not the horse's head, but the one before that. The one where studio mogul Jack Woltz reveals his weakness by taking Tom Hagen down to his stables and showing him what he values most:
Hey, come on over here with me; I wanna show you something really beautiful. You do appreciate beauty, don't you? There you are, $600,000 on four hooves. I bet a Russian Czar never paid that kind of dough for a single horse. Khartoum. Khartoum.
Trump is a monster who thrives on conflict, disorientation and always pressing, pressing, pressing his advantage. Where there is no turmoil, he will manufacture some, and how better to do that than to publicly remind Ailes that Trump can fuck up the most valuable piece of horseflesh Ailes' owns, any time he feels like it.
I liked The Kelly File much better without @megynkelly. Perhaps she could take another eleven day unscheduled vacation!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 25, 2015
After forcing Roger Ailes to sign a truce less than three weeks ago, it now appears that Donald has spent that time re-arming with the intent of forcing Ailes to renegotiate the terms of their non-aggression pact.
It's Munich all over again!
