Conservatives point to you and lump me in with those like you since I am liberal. I am constantly defending myself and I'm tired. Stop making me and other more reasonable liberals look like fools by staying ridiculous nonsense like "Trump is illiterate" and "Trump is a moron". He knows full well what he's doing. He's not a moron, he's an a$$hole. Many people use ghost writers. It does not make them illiterate.

Ahh, not to worry, cause I'm no liberal!

Yeah, he sure is making America great again.
Yeah, hearings that the 'establishment' loves and will keep going as long as they feel like it.

Trump's M.O. is to bail when then seas gets rough. He blathers about how he never settles, right up to the time he settles.

But resigning the presidency has disastrous financial implications.

Not only will the political advantages of doing business with Trump disappear, there will be several disadvantages that will not, not the least of which are those money-laundering investigations. Anybody doing business with Trump is risking their financials turning up in RICO investigations of his other business partners. Hmmm?

It is to Trump's benefit to stay in office as long as he possibly can where he and Sessions can insist the laws don't apply to him because he's President and you're not.

How can Trump turn resigning into a win?

He could leave to pursue his career in the private sector as host of a cable channel heavy on Alex Jones interviews and Ted Nugent concerts. He only has one life to live and he has realized that his years on his reality show were the happiest ever and he wants to experience that during the time he has left on this earth.

He could leave to spend more time with his family, such as his young son that he's only seen a time or two since January. The child recently had a shocking experience and would likely benefit from additional parental comfort.

He could say he had not realized how complicate it would be to separate out his financial affairs and in the interests of his beloved children's financial futures ...

Though he will likely blame Republican for not getting behind his perfectly good ideas. Promise all this stuff on Day 1 and here it was Day XXX and nothing. No wall. "Political judges" blocking his Muslim travel ban. No more affordable and better health care plan. No decent-paying jobs for downsized factory workers and coal miners...

He will assuredly blame Democrats, though I don't know who in their right mind would believe that. Senate Democrats couldn't block McConnell's corporate shill from the Supreme court. House Democrats couldn't block the disastrous AHCA.

He will, of course, blame the "Deep State" for framing him. However, I don't know who would believe that either. His presidency is living proof that if the Deep State exists, it is not all powerful.

I'm afraid it will be more of the same. Trump picked Pence because Pence is like him, controlled by fear and easily swayed by it. Pence has more self control and that means he won't tweet every crazy thought he has and we won't know what he's thinking.

The power brokers will bend Pence to their will. Not much will change under Pence. But maybe our foreign relations won't continue to erode. Who knows? I could never have predicted Trump could do so much damage in so little time.

I have noticed that he was in a melt down, and the more bad news that comes out about him, the more he will melt down. I wouldn't put it past him if all the sudden he stops Comey from speaking out. I wouldn't put it past him to do a lot more damage than he has done in order for us to get our attention off the Russian scandal. I expect him to implode as well.

Most people on this forum have not studied psychology, so they don't see Trump for who he is, and that is a shame. I have said it before on here, the book "On Tyranny" is not just a number one seller, but it is a book that spells out what is happening right now. It is frightening, but I imagine that if conservatives read it they would say, "I want Trump to become a dictator." They don't realize that it would affect them as well, and not in a good way.

'The Art Of The Deal


Wonderful news! I'd wager that the majority of Trump Zombies don't even know that he is not even the author of his own books! More reason to believe the MORON is illiterate!
Him getting impeached would be more satisfying, but he's such an enormous threat to this country and the world I'll take resignation.

So Trump's hundred connections to Putin are just 100 bizarre coincidences huh?

Religious Right will likely be ecstatic with Pence. Their prayers have been answered -- bathroom bills, birth control, abortion, ... vouchers for religious schools ...
