He knows he's losing, that's why he wants to protect the participation trophies.

Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, who effectively oversees the campaign from the White House, is expected to play an even more active role.

Oh good.  I was afraid he was actually going to focus in the Middle East

It won't truly sink in until he asks how to file bankruptcy of the presidency or he asks how he just signs the presidency over to Ivanka.

So, what are we gonna do?

Road Trip!

Actually, as we have said before, the walk from Marine One after Tulsa was the most telling thing I have seen recently.

Many TV shows only last 2 or 3 seasons. He should just admit he's not as smart as Homer Simpson and about he's running out of time as America's Dad.

I would wager he does try

But interviews with more than a half-dozen people close to the president depicted a reelection effort badly in need of direction - and an unfocused candidate who repeatedly undermines himself.

Yes, this is totally new and not every day of Trump's entire time running for office and during his presidency.

More likely, in the next 3 months, he starts trying to do a lot of favors for the state of New York. He's got to start thinking of ways to ensure that come January, Marine One doesn't make a sudden turn and takes him to Riker's.

Like he's going to stay in the US or an extradition country if he loses.

This is the perfect time to discuss my script for a sitcom featuring Donald, Eddie and Julian, three quirky single guys living in Russian government housing after seeking asylum from their home countries for their various crimes and coming to grips with what each has lost.  The pilot will feature Donald's frustration at his inability to buy his favorite hairspray and adult diapers at the local supermarket.  Julian will get in to an argument with the building's super, Sergei, over the smell of unchanged cat litter and Eddie will face eviction when it is discovered that the entire editorial devision of the Guardian is sleeping on his living room floor.

He's going to slip out the bunker tunnel when no one is looking and be on the first non stop flight to Moscow.  They're gonna find Mike Pence covered in vomit, crying in a bathroom with a bag of slightly rumpled maga hats.
 
2020-06-28 7:55:42 AM  
Time to fire Pence and blame him for everything? Then he could put his daughter in as VP.
Don't tell me it can't be done, there is no concern for rule of law or procedure.
Bonus. if he steps down with one day left in office she becomes 46 and issues him the most bigly pardons ever seen. She becomes the first female president and another Trump name in the list of presidents. She also gets a full government paid presidential retirement account and protection. Double bonus: even if it is illegal it will be tied up in courts that he packed with judges of his choosing for a hell of a long time if not forever.

He's going to issue blanket pardons for himself and his family and then spend the rest of his short, miserable life trying to dodge any state charges coming down the pipe. Oh and Melanie will divorce him in Feb. 2021. Her choice will be to either use her prenup or wait until he croaks. If she waits until he's dead though, she'll face a court battle with the vultures, Don, Ivanka and Eric.

That would be great, because those pardons would be totally ineffective.
 
2020-06-28 7:57:04 AM  
Dear Mr. President,

Play to your strengths. For your whole life when the going got rough you walked away and blamed others. Make an announcement that you have found a deep state conspiracy but you can only uncover it as a private citizen. Mike Pence becomes president but wasn't he the guy in charge of COVID and by extension the economy since March. You left the government in the best condition but Mike tanked it.

Presidential pardon doesn't do fark all to stop the charges the NY AG is looking into.
 
2020-06-28 7:59:20 AM  
He doesn't really want to win, he just wants to not lose. The problem is he doesn't have any goal or guiding principal beyond that. Under the hood is a bunch of competing impulses. That's defined his entire life, let alone his presidency.

He can't change now. Who knows what he's going to do as we get closer. Quit? Issue a pardon to himself and his kids? Try to declare a national state of emergency (even though elections are manged by the states)? Walk out wearing nothing but a pool floatie and say he's sold California to Russia for it? I have no idea.

I think there's an important point being missed here, this is a verifiable chink in the plot armor that is the last three and a half years. This is a person who is literally violating more laws than anyone can legitimately keep track of and the whole of our government couldn't get rid of him.

It's practically War of the Worlds on a political scale, the ultimate political nuke didn't work, what will?  A microscopic virus.

This is time we should mock, mock LOUDER than we've mocked before.  This pressure point that will undo his presidency.  As long as he's in this state we could get him to potentially throw in the towel himself or simply be found in the closet with a plastic bag over his head in a highly compromising position worthy of a full month of Fark subs. peacefully in his sleep no longer an issue to the planet.

Who are the (R)ussians going to put up in his stead?  V.P. Miracle Whipped? Uncle Joe will leave Trans Am skidmarks down the center of his bleached head.

The Lincoln Project may basically be some Heinlein follower, libertarians but their shot comes at a perfect time to do even more damage to the now crumbling ego of the Mango Moron.

The campaign has begun a massive TV ad campaign going after the 77-year-old former vice president, including over his mental capacity and his nearly five-decade political career. Hoping to make inroads with African-American voters, Trump's campaign is running ads slamming Biden over his central role in the 1994 crime bill.

Yeah just keep farking that chicken. If black voters didn't turn on Gov. Northam for that stupidly racist thing he did over 20 years ago, what makes you think they'll turn on Biden for this. The only purity tests black people are concerned about are the ones your Nazi followers are going to administer if you get a second term you fat orange turd.

So, at this point, there is no replacement on the ballot.  Who could the deep state Republican Illuminati, in cahoots with the Chinese lab that spread the COVID-19 and plotting to derail Trump's plan to expose them as recruiters for the Comet Pizza child sex ring, run in his place?

He's going to try to save his own skin.  He may slow down just enough to take Ivanka with him, but if the choice is him or her he's still going to save himself.

If Trump's numbers against erode to 35 percentage points over the next two weeks, Nunberg added, "He's going to be facing realistically a 400-plus electoral vote loss and the president would need to strongly reconsider whether he wants to continue to run as the Republican presidential nominee."
