This morning, Maggie Haberman reported the following:

If this really happens, then New York magazine's Olivia Nuzzi was right a few weeks ago:

But if it's true, what about this report, which Axios's Alayna Treene posted yesterday?
President Trump is considering a made-for-TV grand finale: a White House departure on Marine One and final Air Force One flight to Florida for a political rally opposite Joe Biden's inauguration, sources familiar with the discussions tell Axios.

... The former network star is privately discussing using his waning powers as commander in chief to order up the exit he wants after dissing Biden by refusing to concede the election, welcome him to the White House or commit to attending his inauguration.

... The Trump talk could create a split-screen moment: the outgoing president addressing a roaring crowd in an airport hangar while the incoming leader is sworn in before a socially distanced audience outside the Capitol, as NBC News first reported.
I think Haberman, Nuzzi, and Treene could all be right. I wouldn't put it past Trump to turn the rest of his presidential term into a five-week-long Senior Skip Day -- and then turn around, fly back to Washington, sulk a little more in the White House, and then do this showoffy grand exit right back to Florida, just because he has to be infantile. Would that surprise you?

By the way, Donnie: the helicopter? Seen it. It's a rerun. And this time the music won't be nearly as good.
