Well, that's it. Now I'm seriously on the fence about voting for Donald Trump.
 
2018-01-03 01:35:13 PM  
Because quitting would be admitting he couldn't handle the job. It's that simple: it would kill his ego to admit he couldn't handle it.

The Third Man: The only problem with this theory is the obvious one:  if he didn't want to be President then, why does he want to be President now?  It's not like the job is getting any easier or less stressful.  And he'd make a ton of money off of rubes if he resigned and blamed "the deep state" or "Killary" or some other nonsense for making his job impossible.

Bottom line is, as President Trump is hated by the people he wants to impress, and his base is comprised of the poor, uneducated folks he's looked down on his entire life.  As former President, he can make money off those poor, uneducated folks--and really, making money off of the easily-scammed is the only thing he's ever shown a real passion for doing--and the people he wants to impress will find someone else to hate.  But he's showing no interest in becoming a former President.  So maybe he does want to be the leader after all.


He has learned the Eternal Truth:

The US stopped being a global super power the moment we elected him.
I'm just wondering if and when things like the UN move to another country or NATO dissolves.
 
Should we start a pool?

5 years ago, I wrote a spec pilot for a writing class in which a wildly ignorant, irresponsible, corrupt congressman tries to sabotage his own presidential campaign, but it backfires because the American people are so farking dumb that his polls go up with every idiotic, disgusting move.

I wrote that shiat five years ago.

I've been calling this since the beginning, he just wanted that sweet campaign donation money and sales from those stupid hats.

My proof is when he upped the rents for his campaign offices as soon as he was nominated and use the GOP coffers to pay for them. This is like a real life producers.

America's first Flop Sweat President

This is why he literally runs his presidency based on Fox & Friends, he never had any idea what his politics were to begin with.
 
2018-01-03 01:40:25 PM  

scottydoesntknow: Of course he never wanted to win. He never planned on winning. His goal was to throw so much shiat at Hillary that her presidency would be crippled with fake scandals and allegations.

From there he'd get his Russia pay (Putin wants America destabilized, nothing more) and be able to start his Trump News Network with alt-right news alt-the time.

His worst mistake was running. His worst nightmare is winning.


Just his?.

It's not obvious to you?
His ego won't let him, neither will his handlers.
And, he's banking a shiat load of money from this deal.


But Trump has often quit during his career and spun it as a victory.  I don't see why he couldn't do the same here.  He already laid the groundwork for it by complaining about everybody and everything being against him--that seems tailor made as a precursor to quitting.

It's simply not true that people with big egos refuse to quit.  They do, but in their minds they don't see it as quitting.

Read the story. It's basically a psychotic break that occurred a few hours after the election was called. Life gave him shiat, he decided to make shiat-ade.

Drumpf, in fact, found the White House to be vexing and even a little scary. He retreated to his own bedroom - the first time since the Kennedy White House that a presidential couple had maintained separate rooms. In the first days, he ordered two television screens in addition to the one already there, and a lock on the door, precipitating a brief standoff with the Secret Service, who insisted they have access to the room. He reprimanded the housekeeping staff for picking up his shirt from the floor: "If my shirt is on the floor, it's because I want it on the floor." Then he imposed a set of new rules: Nobody touch anything, especially not his toothbrush. (He had a longtime fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald's - nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade.) Also, he would let housekeeping know when he wanted his sheets done, and he would strip his own bed.

What a farking weirdo.

Harlee: Snapper Carr: I wouldn't think any less of him* if he chose to resign.

That would leave Pence in charge. Not sure you've thought your cunning plan all the way through here.


I'm pretty sure that not having to worry about nuclear destruction every time North Korea says mean things is worth having Pence.

It's not like Trump isn't advancing all of the worst parts of a Pence presidency anyway.
 
2018-01-03 01:43:26 PM  
I doubt Trump will resign at this point.  He knows Mueller is coming for him.  As long as he is President, they will have to go through the impeachment process.  If he was a civilian they could just arrest him outright.  Trump will have to be dragged our screaming before he goes.  The best part is that every person that has ever had contact with Trump is being looked at through this investigation, he basically gave all his friends and business partners the death sentence by becoming POTUS.

Pence is a god bothering idiot and would be a disaster but he appears to know how to act in a way that resembles a mature adult.

Regardless of what happens with Mueller's investigation or the midterms, there's no good outcome in the short term. Pence might be the least terrible option should D2S vacate the position.

Archidude: FortyHams: Sounds like they're going to have to completely redo the presidential bedroom after he leaves.

Tearing down the steel and concrete barrier that Melania had built down the center of the bed is going to be difficult.


According to the article they're the first couple since Kennedy to sleep in separate rooms. The difference being that JFK's room was too full of young women and Trump's is just full of big mac wrappers and dirty clothes.

NATO can no longer trust the United States.

The United States ceded economic influence in South East Asia and Central/South America to China.

The United States has lost credibility and reliability for future international negotiations for several decades (whose gonna trust a President the US will keep its word?).

ad infinitum.

He got what he wanted.

gave Putin what he wanted.
