That designation doesn't seem to be preventing a comeback. At least, not in itself. Over and over again during Campaign 2016, Donald Trump was described as a bully. He had severe setbacks. But, he won the election.
Politico speculates that Christie could put together a comeback. During the Bridgegate trial and after he wasn't provided a big White House job, Christie was written off by many as "finished."
Now, he has the responsibility to combat addiction. And Politico reports that he talks with the president a number of times a week. After his second term as governor is over, he could climb into bigger things.
Obviously, bullying in itself isn't a career-ender. It takes other crimes against capitalism to banish players from the big time.
Take Roger Ailes. For years it was known he was a bully. But it was a change in the nation's values which did him in. The allegations of sexual harassment began to be taken seriously. Both in the realms of public opinion and law. It was more those shifts rather than an innate character defect like being a bully which deep-sixed Ailes' career.
And, if Bill O'Reilly is forced to resign it won't be his bullying nature. It will be that long term he presents too much of a financial risk to the Fox News empire. The 21st Century Fox parent won't be willing to live with that.
And what about all the bullies we have worked for in our careers? Rarely do they get their supposed deserved punishment. That's just the way it is in capitalism. If they can continue to bring in the revenue for the organization, they stay. BigLaw is reportedly crammed packed with bullies. Good luck trying to change that.
