And the answer is: "No."
Today our president suggested that both the FBI and the Department of Justice are part of the vast conspiracy to take the election from him.— S.V. Dáte (@svdate) November 29, 2020
Which means we've arrived at tear-the-ship-apart-to-find-the-strawberries stage.

Queeg is a fictional character whose every action is determined by Herman Wouk and screenwriters. Trump assembled a decent cabinet, and then proceeded to ignore every one of them because he's a "very stable genius" and knows more than all his generals and "gets science" because he had an uncle on faculty at MIT.
My father was an accountant; I'm an English major. Whatever skills he had in numbers didn't pass to me.
The "establishment" tried to work with Trump. He wasn't Queeg. He wasn't a hapless man in over his head but the product of a Naval system of discipline that could have been appealed to by his fictional (and non-Navy careerist) officers. The comparison doesn't work, on any level. Well, except the tear-the-ship-apart-to-find-the-strawberries part.
