I didn't think it was ever in doubt that Team Trump had no expectation of winning. It was and is peopled by the ne'er do-wells and hangers-on who have no place in normal politics. So you are either:
- utterly incapable of recognizing the dire lack of advancement within a renegade whirlwind of sycophancy or
- utterly incapable of caring that your advancement is inextricably tied to a renegade whirlwind of sycophancy.
It's Briscoe Cains all the way down.
