(New York Daily News)   Ten anonymous heroic and brave GOP Senators have hatched a plan to keep Trump contained if he tries to provoke a constitutional crisis, just *after* they help him ram through a disastrous SCOTUS pick to wreck the judicial system for generations   (nydailynews.com) divider line

They got what they wanted, now he's just dead weight.
 
2020-10-26 2:28:49 PM  
Maybe they can impeach him.
 
2020-10-26 2:30:04 PM  
So, after shiatting all over the US Constitution for 12 years, now they decide they may want to help save it.

OK. Thanks for the help, late and weak as it may be. You still  deserve to be voted out of office immediately.

It's almost as if there's no such thing as a "never Trump" Republican and anyone who tells you that's what they are is trying to con you.
 
2020-10-26 2:30:45 PM  
Rodents of unusual size indeed.
 
2020-10-26 2:33:26 PM  
Effum. They're still Republicans
 
2020-10-26 2:34:17 PM  
Are these the same 10 that were just itching for the Democrats to impeach him so they could convict?

Given their concern levels, Susan Collins has got to be in there somewhere.
 
2020-10-26 2:37:50 PM  
Seeing how well the GOP plans to keep Trump from being the nominee in the first place fared, I expect nothing but great success in their efforts now.
 
2020-10-26 2:37:50 PM  
I knew the internets wouldn't let me down.  It's already taken care of of, plans are in motion...

What do 10 senators think they're gonna do, get his Cabinet to invoke the 25th?  Pass some magic legislation?

Well to be honest the Dems would roll over and rubber stamp it instead of strapping on some gonads and spines and LOUDLY CALLING OUT THE UTTER HYPOCRISY.

If the Never Trump contingent is worth a damn they would nail Trump's post-election behavior to the current GOP, then epoxy it, weld it, and surgically graft it to the GOP.  And set themselves up as the new leaders of the party, taking out Moscow Mitch McConnell, Gym Jordan, Zodiac Killer Cruz, Grapefruit F*cker, and allllllll the rest.  And they would straight up say Pelosi was right in impeaching him too.

Hang every GOP senator who voted to acquit on the chain of the anchor that is Trump and drag them down to Hell with him.

Sure. They are just SUCH patriotic Americans who are truly worried about the health of our nation. That's why they voted to acquit him and keep giving him everything he wants.

The issue isn't "Trump" per se.

If it was JUST Trump, they would have convicted him on Impeachment and thrown him out... Mike Pence was perfectly fine and would have likely also done all of this ACB stuff, etc.

The issue was the blowback from Trump's base, completely.  Because they knew that they might lose in the fall (because of Trumpsters not voting), if not primaried out in the spring because some "Trumpian" would be run against them.

So, yes, they are feckless idiots and ideologues who are only doing things to keep themselves in office, but, they only do that because they have Trumpian idiots as a large enough part of their constituents.

So in say ten years are Republicans going to go with
A. Trump was a true American patriot who was maligned by the MSM
B. Trump was stopped by Republicans from doing evil
C. Trump was a deep cover Liberal all along

I sometimes wonder the same thing, but, IMO he would have just dragged out the SCJ stuff then somehow... while Gorsich hasn't been as wildly right as promised, these last two certainly seem to be aiming to be.  A "deep cover liberal" wouldn't have f*cked us over in the courts like this.

Some will certainly be "A", but, I think 15-20 years down the road and further, he'll be a Joe McCarthy like character... some will still think he was "doing the right thing", but most and "history" in general will be very unkind to him.

From all account just on CNN occasionally?

"Trump is obviously trying to turn the US into a dictatorship... let's lay the foundations for his bridge to do this, build the piers, place the keystone and then pave the road and give him a big pair of ceremonial scissors for the ribbon cutting ceremony... then we have a great plan to stop him... right after he doesn't need us anymore"
 
2020-10-26 3:34:04 PM  
People, are you seriously believing what a republican is saying?

They will farking anoint him as Dictator.
 
2020-10-26 3:34:21 PM  
Brave enough to remain anonymous?  Wow!

They've all proven to have no ability to do anything without Yertle's approval, so why bother.
 
2020-10-26 3:36:33 PM  
It's a lifetime appointment.  Which means there is only one solution.
 
2020-10-26 3:36:59 PM  
More weasel words.  Tell ya what, believe it when I see it and before that you're still human garbage, how's that for "compromise"?
 
2020-10-26 3:37:49 PM  
Does this plan involve the 10 GOP Senators building a time machine, going back in time and replacing their past selves, defecting to the Democrats to deprive McConnell of the ability to use the majority to shield Trump, holding a thorough hearing in the Senate and then voting in favor of impeachment?  No?  Then what farking good is it gonna do?
 
2020-10-26 3:37:51 PM  
10 isn't enough - they need at least 13 and be willing to switch parties to remove McConnell when he refuses to bring anything to the floor and break any filibuster.
 
2020-10-26 3:38:05 PM  
Standing by the barn door, watching horse after horse pass by and wondering if anyone should maybe get around to closing it.
 
2020-10-26 3:38:12 PM  
This is super exciting because we've never had a story about Republicans considering action against Trump before so this will definitely amount to something.
 
2020-10-26 3:38:23 PM  
I'm reminded of the brave Texas Senator, John Cronyn. Who secretly opposed Trump on border wall and something else, but bravely kept It to himself.

Yeah, I'm with the fark em' hard crowd on this one.
 
2020-10-26 3:41:40 PM  
10 republicans finally get their courage together and vow they will no longer spit on Trump's dick when giving him a handjob.
 
2020-10-26 3:41:50 PM  
Ahhh, repubs acting in 'good faith', don't piss down my leg and tell me it's raining.
 
2020-10-26 3:41:53 PM  
Find the 10 Republicans expected to be in competitive races in 2022. There's your 10.

If Mitch plays along, they can basically do whatever they want.  The Senate is the linchpin to Trump's power.  And if Mitch doesn't, the furrowed brow crew would have to recaucus until January 20th(can't keep a straight face saying that).

If this election turns out poorly for Republicans in the Senate, I can see Mitch trying to shore up the damage by playing along in order to push his agenda along until the new Senate term

my guess would be that they'll signal to Nancy to immediately impeach him and Mitch will deliver the votes this time.

There'd probably be some attempt to get Dems to promise not to add Justices or something, too.

I don't care if they spend the rest of their days rescuing kittens and puppies and helping little old ladies across the street, they're all still cynical tick-turds who should eat glass.

Why would McConnell do that?  He's surely not one of these 10.

They could have just removed him from office 10 months ago.
 
2020-10-26 3:54:08 PM  
I'm much more concerned with him trying the nullify or rig the election or the selection of electors.  If that sails through smoothly, I'm giddy about the prospect of him refusing to leave.  The military and Secret Service do not take kindly to trespassers in the White House.
 
2020-10-26 3:54:32 PM  
"so if we lose this election badly shall we try to get ahead of it by getting on the record that we always opposed trump, or do you think we'll escape the backlash?"
