Word is he doesn't trust the debate commission. Because it isn't completely loyal to him I suppose. They'd trap him into lying by asking him questions.

I don't see why that would be a problem. It's not like he would be under oath or anything. He lied his ass off in the last set of debates, and his base thinks that was great. I think it might be too stressful for him. He might flip into a full psychotic break on national TV. That would not bother his base, but it might scare some independents off.

I guess he's already there:

Cuckcoo for Cocoa Puffs

I think it's becoming obvious to everyone that Trump actually believes all of this crap. Instead of impeachment, he needs a good psychiatrist to check him out, get some anti-psychotic or anti-senility drugs on board, and then do an Amendment 25 thingie so the poor guy can get some help. If Democrats still want an impeachment, they can impeach Pence for his part in the Ukraine fiasco.

Some of the stuff he does is certainly evil, but I'm starting to feel sorry for Trump. He needs help, and everybody is using him for political ping pong instead of getting him that help. I think maybe a few concerned Senators could get this to happen, like Romney.

Actually it is unnecessary to even ask a question. Simply allow him to ramble about anything. He is compelled to lie because he is a narcissist.

I think it's gone beyond simple narcissism. He's highly delusional, and taking a chunk of the country with him on this trip. If I worked at the White House I would want to be absent on the day they decide everybody should have some Koolaid.

As we learned, Article 25 won't work because Trump does not actually have a cabinet anymore, he has "acting dept heads".
His ACTUAL "cabinet" is Jared Kushner.
In fact, seeing as how Trump is always golfing, tweeting or holding rallies, or watching Fox, Kushner is pretty much the defacto POTUS.

And it STILL takes, IIRC, a supermajority in the Senate, something that will never happen unless or until Trump causes a mushroom cloud to appear over one of our major cities.

That wouldn't even do it. Trump would say that the city was full of Never Trumpers and the rank & file would crow about how it was the biggest mushroom cloud ever.

Fraid you're right, because I suspect El Lay Cali would be #1 on the list of cities he wants to destroy in order "to save it".

On tonight's Democratic debate, Andrew Yang mentioned THORIUM.
This is important!
