Trump’s presidency: End game

It’s becoming increasingly clear — to me, at least — that Donald Trump is going to tweet himself right out of the White House, and that he won’t serve his full term.

So, how will it end, and when?

Will he last another year as president of the United States?

And how will it end?

Will he resign?

Will he be ushered/carried out — one way or another?

Polish off your crystal ball, and give us your fearless prediction for how the White House nightmare will end?

  1. Look back at my reply to your post last year where you said “Give him a chance”.
    I said something along the lines of, ‘The man-child is a moron and completely unsuitable for any position of power’.
    I am surprised that it looks like he will last a year in office, but his latest tweets admitting obstruction of justice are pretty indefensible. His lawyer saying that he authored that tweet is grounds for his disbarment, and now even he is backpedaling saying that it was a grammatical error.

    Here’s what my balls say:
    Trump will be impeached and he will be the first US president to be removed from office by the Senate.

    After the tax giveaway for the rich is signed by the president, the Republicans no longer need him. They will have achieved their goal.

    Grover Norquist said a few years ago:
    “Pick a Republican with enough working digits to handle a pen to become president of the United States. This is a change for Republicans: the House and Senate doing the work with the president signing bills. His job is to be captain of the team, to sign the legislation that has already been prepared.”

    But, after signing the giveaway to the rich, the level of Trump support from Congress will weaken, and make him more vulnerable to an impeachment vote. The Senate will likely abandon him as well as his popularity continues to drop like a rock. A Senator supporting Trump will be equally unpopular when they have to run for re-election.

    If the Democrats get off their collective asses and vote in 2018, they could take the House of Representatives back, and then impeachment is assured.

    Either way, Trump is stupid enough and arrogant enough to think he can fight an impeachment trial. He won’t quit. He won’t quietly resign and leave, he has to be thrown out.

    Then we’re stuck with Pence who has said that his bible supersedes the U.S. Constitution. Be afraid. Be very afraid.


    1. The thing with Trump is he makes things up as he goes along, and seems to tweet any thought in his head. The latest tweets admitting obstruction of justice may not be truthful; he may have just tweeted them off without thinking. I don’t think a tweet is enough to convict him. Concrete proof is needed.

      Either way, he’s almost done as president, and I think you are right: it will be President Pence.


  2. I wouldn’t count out Donald Trump yet. You may be surprised how resilient he is. He has defied the odds since he started running for President. Shocked almost everybody when he won the presidency. Surprised the country that he is responsible for the economic boom. the loud ones (the liberal press and the liberal Democrats) get the news and continually bring him down. Who knows how long he will last. 1, 2, 4, 8 years?


  3. The economy is huge and cannot turn on a dime like a rowboat as Trump sycophants seem to think. Pr*sident Trump deserves absolutely no credit for the U.S. economy and nothing he has done will improve it in the next few years. The U.S. economy had been growing for the past eight years, and any growth you see in the past year is largely from momentum. Even the Republican tax scam will take two or three years before the pain begins for most. The old, especially those with life-threatening medical issues will feel the pain first because Medicare and Medicaid will be cut by $25-Billion on January 1, 2018. Oncology clinics are already making plans of whom to tell that they can’t provide treatment any longer. Republican death panels? Hospitals are already anticipating layoffs.

    As I said, once the Republican Congress gets their tax scam for the rich signed, they just won’t need Trump any more.
