Given how Trump has handled things so far, there's plenty of other venues to choose from.

Doesn't he understand that history will crush him with his failures? I mean, all he has to do is resign. At least after doing that much, he'll be viewed as a failure. But as a cautionary tale. A man, that at the last moment, realized the scope of his failure, and did what was right.

He better hurry up and decide, the escorts need to sort out travel arrangements.

I absolutely believe that he did at least float the idea of moving the Republican convention to Doral, for exactly the same reason that he floated moving the G8 there: that place is a bedbug-riddled dump, and so this would get it a renovation on the taxpayers' dime.

This. He isn't going to miss the opportunity for a "free" renovation while he's in office. He'll find a way to host something there before November...

Hopefully his concession speech party. Or, he becomes so debilitated by the defeat that Pence becomes 46* for 10 weeks.

I said in the G8 threads that Doral would be a security nightmare. Same holds true for the RNC.

All you have to do is look at the Lost Cause, the attack on Grant as a person and elevation of the traitor Robert E. Lee, to see what dedicated liars can do to history.

Or Reagan.

Trump meant he has zero interest payments in Doral because the Russians consigned the loans and assumed the payments in return for favors.

I remember when he wanted to have the G7 there all we heard about was the extent and capacity of the facilities. And so close to the airport!

I think he's well past the point of "cautionary tale" and has finally reached the level of "trial in the Hague". If assassinating a visiting Iranian leader that was invited to Iraq wasn't enough, knowingly shipping covid19-infected migrants back to airports in central america and helping fuel massive new outbreaks should be.

A flotilla of Greyhound buses airlifting prostitutes into the battle zone.  I would have said combat zone, but it's a Boston thing.

So, he wanted to move it to Doral, then, I'm guessing - and was told that was stupid.

Why not just have it in Wisconsin? No restrictions here.

They probably don't use that exact word, but I suspect they tell him that all the time.

No, everyone left in his immediate orbit is too chickenshiat to come out and say that.

I bet they told him he'd have to spend some of his own money, and he immediately changed course.

He will fight all allegations against him until his dying breath thinking he got away with it all. He doesn't care about the truth or who will defend him when he's long dead.

That's what bugs me so much. Even after he's out of the Oval Office he will still be in a vac chamber being told how everyone loves him. I don't think he'll  ever feel the actual shame and depression he's should.

Why would taxpayers pay to renovate for a private political party's convention?

I don't believe that Trump will try to seize power if he loses the election, but I'd be shocked if he makes a concession speech. He'll tweet complete insanity about it being stolen, while the people who had propped him up for four years rush to knife him in the back before the final state is called. It will be the clownshow to end all clownshows, and I hope to be drunk enough to both enjoy it and to remember nothing of it the following day.

Guys like Trump, who have lived their whole lives behind a philosophy of avarice, I wouldn't hope for some last minute "what have I done" sort of moment.   I wish.  But he can go on like this right until zero hour, in the belief that he's the greatest human ever to exist.  His final act, be it of hitting that big red button or stroking out on the Gold Toilet, will be the best act ever, of all people, and will never be followed up upon by anyone better.

They don't understand nonexistence, and they never got that notion that the world goes on even if they aren't around to observe it.  (See "Growing Pains: Season 1, Episode 21" god I need a new hobby)
