Yah, that will get us a president with no integrity, honor, principles or believability. Its hard to believe, but that would be several steps up from what we have right now.

I think it's a moot point though. On the off chance that, for one reason or another, Donald Trump does not finish his term we will get Mike Pence for the duration.

True, but Pence is just another Evangelical Republican as opposed to an insane child. I doubt he would drop the bomb just to hurry along the End Times. He's not an insane cult Christian. He's just a Christian, and a Republican to boot!

How Christian can a Republican be, after all? So many things in the Republican mainstream are the opposite of hard-core Christian beliefs. For example, for example "Give away all your money to feed the poor, and follow me." is a direct quote from Jesus. How about "Feed the poor, heal the sick, cloth the naked, visit prisoners in jail: When you do these things for the least these of our brothers, you do them for me."

You get my point: Pence is really just a social conservative with Christianity as cover. A true Christian movement would flummox him!

All these goddamned hippies wandering around without jobs, preaching the gospel. Let's have them beaten and jailed. Then we can put them to work in forced labor camps...

Trump will have an opportunity to resign for "health reasons" before his term is up.

Nope. Not at all. Elijah Cummings sent Pence a letter on November 18, 2016 stating that Mike Flynn was a foreign agent. Mike Pence lied about knowing that fact.

As I wrote above: Get used to saying President Paul Ryan.

Trump's father Fred died from Alzheimers - given Donald's behavior - it's not so much of a stretch to conclude that genetics has passed the disease along. Hmm

The depth of obstruction and desperation of President Trump are coming to the surface. Trump asked DNI, NSA to deny evidence of Russia collusion - CNN. The money quote has to be this:
Quote:
"The White House does not confirm or deny unsubstantiated claims based on illegal leaks from anonymous individuals," said a White House spokesperson who declined to be named.
The irony is completely lost on these amateurs.
