I will continue to ask for help from the other mods. Maybe someone will know how to fix this.
I remain in favor of posting issues about the administration under The Trump Administration.

Good explanation of some of Trump's conflicts of interest:

HOW DONALD TRUMP'S BUSINESS TIES ARE ALREADY JEOPARDIZING U.S. INTERESTS

Why bother electing someone who will be impeachable on day one? The electoral college should all just vote for Kasich. If all the Democratic electors voted for him it would only take 38 Republican votes.

But you know what will be the most amusing? We KNOW President Trump is GOING to get caught trying some strange skirt, yes?
Since Melania WILL be in NYC for a few months till Barron finishes school, our President-elect WILL be boffing some strange and he WILL get caught.
And it will be highly entertaining watching all the Christian Right spinning till they pass out trying to excuse it, along with their Alt-Reich counterparts.
Don't forget all the maniacal RW outrage over Bill Clinton getting caught enjoying a BJ (and more) in the Oval Office.
But for Trump, a FREE PASS.

Conflicts of interest, threatening electors or strange skirt?
A veritable Basket of Undoings?

Maybe we should try a Republican route? Let all government employees (yes including the President) to engage in any business run the country as part of his or her business?

Erroneous assumption: you presume a Repub majority past 2018. May not be the case.

LOL .... ok at least through 2018 he could declare himself to be emperor of the universe etc etc

now about 2018 ... my recollection of the the political map indicates the D's can not win majorities in either house ("Reeling Democrats confront brutal 2018 Senate map" and House majority is too large to overcome).

So it would appear you have fantasized election outcomes which do not reflect measured realities. Here is a sample of what you may be thinking which would turn voters around

ACA - conservative propaganda has convinced a huge chuck of Americans ACA is bad, so regardless if 25M people are thrown off the insurance rolls it would be considered a great thing

Russian relations - Trump supporters do not care if Russia does what it wants to do and anything they do except take over America doe not affect them therefore etc

Iran deal - again conservative propaganda based on hatred of the Iranians will not change anyone's mind

jobs - he saved 800 jobs temporarily (which is not the same as creating jobs) and he will negotiate saving jobs by giving away taxpayer dollars - who cares? - and he will create some 10k jobs in the oil field therefore etc etc

genitalia grabbing - conservatives love this stuff .... your outrage and indignation of some virtuously bankrupt president does not mean a lot

note these are not assumptions but derivative conclusions based on the reality of a Trump win and aftermath. perhaps you can provide a few reasons why you would think that bucking political headwinds are favorable for a Democrat reversal?

I forgot you are a soothsayer ROTFMOL
By the way - you are assuming a version of reality that only a cracked crystal ball could know.


Time (and Trump economic disaster) will tell.
