What he does in those 79 lame duck days is somewhat limited by Amendment 25. For instance, if he tried to launch nukes at somebody I think Pence would cooperate in Amendment 25. It would do wonders for Pence's reputation, which is pretty much in the toilet now.

I think it would consist of Trump being carted of by ambulance to some nice rubber room, for a "mental breakdown". They'd drug him up and render him incommunicado while they do the paperwork.

I also read something about Pence being willing to do it after some Trump outrage in the past. That has the advantage for Trump of giving Pence some time as President so he can pardon Trump of his federal crimes. Happened with Nixon!

I wish I could agree but I view 25A as something of a unicorn which would never finally be approved until AFTER something significant and damaging occurred.
You brought up the nuclear football, for example.
I don't think we would hear serious talk of 25A unless there is already a mushroom cloud somewhere.

I think an important point you're missing is that DJT is a pussy. He hasn't got the cojones to pull off something like that.

Donald Trump's mother, Mary, hated Donald's guts. Mary and Fred Trump sent Donald off to military school during his teen years. Donald Trump has never gotten over how his mother treated him - and who can blame Mary? Look at the type of person she gave birth to.

I kinda like "Bribery AND Extortion" better. Why exclude either one! (they both apply)

He's a spoiled little boy, and his impression is that as President he can do anything. Losing the election will be a massive blow to his self-concept. He's convinced that he is "a perfect President" and very popular. That might kick him over the edge into full psychotic break.

Of course some mental health professionals would say he's already there.

Greger I think you may be seriously underestimating the depth of his depravity at this point in the situation, and here is the situation:

Donald Trump, scion of the Fred Trump real estate empire, having for the last seventy some years of his entitled, sheltered life, has enjoyed the luxury of not ever being held accountable for his action, and he has now reached the pinnacle of his dreams, leader of the free world, President of the United States of America.
He can do ANYTHING HE WANTS BECAUSE, he believes, he's the POTUS.
Top all that off with his sociopathic belief that no one else is real except him and his family, everyone else, the entire human race, are just props in his show, and it IS HIS SHOW, according to him.
And as far as he's concerned, if they're going to "cancel his show" then he's going to cancel Earth.


Never ever underestimate sociopaths, and the depths to which they will sink, and never underestimate Trump.

The #1 most important chapter in his infamous book is about REVENGE.

Truly, in America, anyone really CAN be President.
ANYONE.

And this is who the idiots picked.
Don't underestimate them either.

Cowardice has nothing to do with it.

Yup, Donald Trump is a sick-in-the-head sociopath, and when regular people like us who don't have degrees in psychology can see it, the mental illness has got to be pretty bad in the individual.

Hmm
