Illusion of Rising Action

"OMG Trump is in new legal jeopardy!" Repeat every two months for six years.

It's clear that Trump's narrative arc doesn't follow the standard story form of exposition, rising action, climax, denouement.

But, I'm starting to think his arc is more like a Shepard Tone:

Always rising, somehow. Yet never reaching a satisfying climax. And never really resolving.

Which is why it's so very very annoying.

    All I want for Christmas is . . . Trump in an orange jumpsuit. Probably have to make that an early wish for 2023. Hmmm, maybe an Easter gift…?
