To be clear, I think he’s completely insane and should be on a ward somewhere, BUT I think that his delusion makes it possible for him to walk away from a catastrophic failure and call it a victory.August 18, 2017 at 6:52 am #697587
He’s not going anywhere unless his party turns on him in some forceful way. Those politicians answer to their primary electorate and Republicans overwhelmingly support him.August 18, 2017 at 7:25 am #697589
Trump doesn’t give a shit about the Republican party though. If it’s better for him personally to quit, he’ll quit. That’s literally his only consideraton.August 18, 2017 at 7:46 am #697591
Fyodor, I disagree. He knows they’ve got his tax returns. He knows what he did and that he can’t stop Mueller. What you’re saying does apply to impeachment or forceful removal, but I do believe he would resign.August 18, 2017 at 7:48 am #697592
Also, republicans don’t overwhelmingly support him. I think it’s 67% now? That’s quite low. You’d expect it to be in the 90s. The two that spoke out yesterday may be turning the tide.

Holy shit! Who’s left of the original team, besides his family and Conway?August 18, 2017 at 12:50 pm #697634
Did everyone see Tina Fey and her sheetcake?August 18, 2017 at 1:33 pm #697637
The one thing about Trump that keeps it all from be the absolute worst is that he is so abrasive and arrogant he can’t accomplish his legislative goals. I’m hoping he hangs in there until the midterm elections and that the democrats become a majority in at least either the house of senate, better both, before Trump is replaced with Pence. Pence has the political skills to push through that far right bucket list.

Sky, I think the exact same thing as you do. He’s made enough enemies in the house and senate that he can’t really accomplish much. Pence will be able to.
Right now, the hate and bigotry is bad. The vocalization of that hate and bigotry is even worse. I think Kate said it earlier, at least a light is shown on all these hateful people and hopefully we’ll come out stronger and better.August 18, 2017 at 5:45 pm #697663
Damn, Steve Bannon is now out, another special adviser to Trump has stepped down, and everyone left on the Commitee on the Arts and Humanities has resigned. What a fire sale of people today….!August 18, 2017 at 8:43 pm #697670
Bannon will be very vocal and psycho, I suspect. Trump will be FLAMED to an insane degree. Heh heh heh.
