There is not much more Trump can do. Judges and taxes are about done, Repeal and Replace is not happening. Trump should jump and leave on his own terms. A real or fake Health issue provides a way out where Trump does not have to admit guilt.

i maintain Trump's best path forward is getting out of the oval office before he is asked, not after. He could pardon pence and if the DOJ comes after Trump later pence could pardon Trump...
I don't always agree with you - in fact, I frequently disagree - but I think you are correct about this. I'm not sure the pardons you describe would work out quite that way - too much public outrage - but I do think a health concern, real or feigned, would give Trump the excuse he needs to resign, then play golf and enjoy super-burgers, steaks and double-scoops to his heart's delight.

Well, maybe not his heart's delight...

If Trump does not finish his term it is far more likely he would leave for health reasons than be impeached.

Hon...Presidents have yearly medical exams.


And you needed to start a goofy thread about it?


Damn. It's worse than I thought.

If he released both he'd reduce a lot of the animosity towards him.
More likely, we'd have him euthanized. 26th amendment anyone? Time to end this amazing stain on our country.

Remember when Trump said he would release his taxes after he got elected? Heck he even promised at one point to release them if he ran for office:

I seriously doubt he will release his medical evaluation, because honestly the way he eats, and his weight? There are going to be issues, and even if they were minor he would not want people to know.
He will release the evaluation with his tax returns.

i don't really think the pardon would work either, but it might be something they would consider. and thought is was worth saying because it might even be sold to trump that way by his staff. I am thinking everyone wants to find a way out of this.

The whole israel thing puts trump's blunders on a whole new level. I am thinking a lot of Rs Ds and Americans just want a real potus again. someone who does not tweet all day and does not act out.

I agree, this isn't his tame pet doctor who is going to be willing to lie for him. I would be very surprised if the records are ever released.
