    The talk is that he makes a deal with the SDNY that they won’t prosecute him after he is no longer President, in exchange for resigning.

    This is what Nixon did. Then Ford pardoned him (Pence would pardon Trump while Pence is President for the last few months.)

    This guarantees that Trump won’t win a 2nd term, but it also guarantees that he won’t get indicted if he loses a 2nd term. If his AG knows what kind of discovery they have against Trump, a plea deal is the way to go. Nobody else gets the deal, though.

    SCOTUS is expected to issue their decision re Trump’s taxes and financials tomorrow. Maybe.

    @GulDukat , I’m not sure what the GOP rules say about this scenario. But everything I’m seeing says that Pence would be the likely nominee, and the RNC picks the VP.

    I honestly don't know. If Trump's approval rating drops to say 35% (it's 41.2% now, RCP average), I don't think it's totally unrealistic. If it becomes clear that there is no way Trump can win, he may walk away. I'm not saying this will happen, but I think it's a remote possibility.

    I think Pence would have a better chance of beating Biden than Trump would. Maybe the RNC is secretly hoping Trump will drop out.

    ^ I was thinking that about Pence over the weekend once I saw him wearing a mask. I thought "hmm...ok, that's a bit out of character. he must be trying ti win people over. maybe even make a power move or have the move made for him"

    The protest against wearing a mask is beyond the pale. Right now Trump could save lives by going on TV and telling everyone to wear a mask, but he won't and people will die because of it. I was no fan of Bush, but he would have done that. Fuck Trump.

    MITCH MCCONNELL told people to wear a mask the other day.

    LIZ CHENEY posted a photo of DICK CHENEY WEARING A MASK, with the caption “Real Men Wear Masks.”

    I couldn't believe when he said that people were trying to be "politically correct" by wearing masks. How "politically correct" of you to attempt to do your small part to mitigate the spread of a deadly disease.

    That narrative is leading his people over the cliff, and got the U.S. numbers higher than any other country on the planet. Because of HIM.

    I've been thinking about this possible plea bargain that may or may not be a thing to pardon his crimes after he resigns...

    I don't want it. I want him to actually face the news. Fuck this fucking guy. If I've EVER wanted someone to see justice of SOME FUCKING KIND, it's this sack of inhuman shit. I want him and his shitty family to rot in jail.

    My prediction: Trump will drop out. Biden will succumb to Covid-19. I wish the first prediction will happen, but really hope the second does not. Sometimes I am wrong. But sometimes I am right.

    Trump to Trump: You're fired!

    Another article on the possibility of Trump resigning.

    If Trump senses a blowout defeat well beyond the usual Republican margin of theft, the champ may decide that it’s more dignified to retire undefeated. He can claim that the election was rigged, that he would have won, blah blah blah, and he can have the satisfaction of agitating his base as president-in-exile with no responsibility whatever for the consequences.

    So now Trump's campaign is using the Nazi eagle.

    You look at the Nazi eagle and the one Trump is using, and you're telling me that they don't look very similar?

    Question is, was this done on purpose or are the people running Trump's campaign just plain stupid?

    This is clear whistle blowing.... and it's disturbing. The eagle over the symbol (as long as it isn't a fucking swastika) predates WWII. It's the Reichsadler. By itself, not associated with nazis or fascism or whatever.

    That's why they can just say "well, we didn't mean it THAT way." And we all move on. I hate these fucking people so much.

    The swastika also predates WW2 by about 12,000 years. Trump could use that too and claim he didn't know Hitler used it.

    I remember being in my early 20s and visiting the Royal Ontario Museum and seeing Buddhist statues with swastika's on them and being really confused and shocked. In the western world, the other contexts for the symbol aren't commonly known.

    I was wondering if this might be an attempt at sabotaging Trump by a designer. Someone who knew that they could slip this under the radar and hopefully cause a shitstorm. Then I remembered the Facebook triangle thing, which shot that theory straight away.

    One professor thinks Trump has a YUGE chance of winning.
    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/pro...-despite-polls

    This model is based on Biden's poor performance in the early primaries and doesn't take Trump's tanking poll numbers or COVID into consideration.

    Nothing will happen to Trump because of this.

    It’s so infuriating because it’s painfully obvious what happened and who did what and why.

    And they’re all going to get away with it.
