If politics were football, Donald Trump would be a JAG.
NFL fans know what that means: Trump is “Just a Guy.”
In professional football slang, being a JAG means that a player is average, nothing special. A JAG lacks game-changing talent and unique status. A JAG is not a star. If a JAG makes too many demands, he’ll be kicked off the team and thrown out on the street.
Trump is finally finding out that being a former president is not the same thing as being president. Both in the courts and in politics, it turns out that being a former president is a lot like being a JAG.
The ex-president is finally fair game for an entire legion of lawyers.
