It's pretty obvious that Trump will crash and burn almost immediately. If his willful ignorance of the law doesn't get him impeached, his nepotism aims, gross conflicts of interest, or lawsuits and/or criminal prosecution against him will bring him down. There's also the very good possibility that he'll find out just how much work the job is and simply stop doing it.

Now, I don't think Pence would be any real improvement. He's a conservative fascist, and to a far greater extent than Trump is. So I'm not asking about this because I want it to happen. On the contrary! I want Trump's descent to be prolonged and painful, and for him to drag the Republican party down into the cesspool of history with him. Ideally, ten years from now, we'll view Republicanism the way we do, say, Scientology.

I would like to find out if anyone is offering odds on Trump completing his first (only) term. With the rabid faith that Trumpers here have in their tin god, I expect to be offered 500-1 or better. But we really should see if he even makes it to the inauguration. Or perhaps I should say, PAST the inauguration, given all the freedom-loving patriotic Second Amendment supporters out there.

He could announce on Jan 22nd that he's invading Canada in order to force the government there to authorize a trump Tower project in Nova Scotia, and to bring home some auto plants there (what? you thought all US plants were stolen by Mexico in 1964??), and the GOP and his supporters would lap it up.

If he doesn't finish his term, it will be due to natural causes or bullets.
If Trump where half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he really is.

For all Trump's potential to ruin himself in office, you have to admit his loyal followers have simply ignored a lot already.

I think Trump will be taken down by an insider, or several insiders so disgusted with him they start leaking things like a sieve. Having people tell on him will drive him even crazier.

It's quite possible that's why he trying to keep family members in the loop. He needs a buffer between him and people who might end up eventually being more loyal to the country than Trump.

Even with his "I can say anything" persona, other people messing with his image in certain ways really ticks him off.

Be careful advocating someones assassination. It might be considered hateful.

He will win the second term with more votes than he got this time. Get your money down early while the odds are good.

MKL is back:


I guess personal attacks are OK here. But gee, Bob, can't you be even the least bit original? Calling people "trolls" has been what pimply fourteen-year-old boys pounding away at their keyboards have done since the dawn of the internet. Surely someone with your immense life experience and wisdom can do better than a sexually frustrated adolescent.

I think you should start slow, though. Aim for 25% of the things you say being correct, and work your way up from there. I'm not suggesting you change your personality--it's far too late for that--but rather, that you establish a modest relationship with the truth. Be as right-wing as you want; tell us what a wonderful human being Trump is and how he will make your pathetic little life better; but at least TRY tell the truth 25% of the time. We'll all appreciate the effort, because we all know---

He's played you, Bob.

What odds are you offering on that parlay (winning, and with more votes to boot)? Or are you just bloviating?

But you claim you're not MKL, so he's
not here to attack.
