Interesting thing: If Pence dies or resigns, Trump can nominate a replacement VP but he has to be confirmed by both Houses of Congress. The House could just wait a few weeks (or forever ala Merrick Garland) to see if Trump dies as well. So Pelosi's chances are not all that bad.

When Nixon resigned, they got Agnew to resign first so they could get Ford confirmed as VP before Nixon left. There was a lot more cooperation then. When Kennedy died, LBJ just left the VP position vacant until the next election.

The chances of Trump dying are pretty low. They'd drain all the blood of a thousand kids to get him antibodies, if they had to. One interesting fact is that people with mild Covid-19 can seem recovered and then drop dead from a stroke.

Yep. Which makes all the people saying "lock down only the old and vulnerable" really stupid.

Not to mention "let all the kids go back to day care and school". They may not show many symptoms (unless they do) but kids are walking disease vectors. If any foreign power wanted to spread a bioweapon, they would be way ahead of the game if they could infect kids asymptomatically. Every family with young children in daycare or school knows all about this. They go from zero colds to several per year when their kids start bringing them home.

If anyone needs proof there is no god it shall be seen in that Trump will never become infected with Covid-19. He is the antichrist and immune to diseases that fell mortal men.

Just watch......him get reelected...

I've said much the same thing, because seven billion people aren't all evil assholes, so if there really is a God and he allows this to befall so many innocents who didn't deserve it, then God must be an [censored], thus I am tempted to believe that there is no God.

Trump, on the other hand, might just be an alien species.

I am not sure who "they" were but, if memory serves, Agnew was an indicted criminal when he resigned (didn't have much of a choice).

Thank you, NOW I understand how he has been able to skate from Covid-19 despite all his efforts to get it!

Thanks again!

Agnew was Nixon's insurance policy, as in : "You'll never impeach me because then you would have Agnew." When it became obvious Nixon had to go, they dragged out some of Agnew's past corruption to get him out of the office so they could impeach Nixon. If Nixon had not screwed up, Agnew's criminality would have been ignored.

I think that's pretty much why Trump picked Pence, in addition to the Evangelical vote. I've heard a lot of people saying don't impeach Trump because Pence would be worse.

I wonder if Judge Sullivan will accept the DoJ's action.


Yeah. Turns out, in the American legal system, if the government breaks the rules, the defendant gets to go free. Who knew?

Is Flynn an innocent fella? Nope. He lied to VPOTUS, concealed his work for Turkey, and seems to have lied to the FBI. Mind you, we haven't prosecuted Andrew McCabe, James Clapper, or John Brennan for lying under oath, nor Thomas Perez for lying while serving as Deputy AG for Civil Rights, so, it seems a bit odd that this is a crime that only members of Republican Administrations should be punished for when they commit it. Flynn being fired and leaving government service in disgrace seems to fit the circumstances far better.


As for completing the corruption of the Justice Department - should Trump attempt to do to Biden what Obama officials did to his campaign, and weaponize law enforcement against a political rival - then I think we could say it's corruption is complete, as its most dangerous form of abuse would then be bipartisan. Fortunately, we know from the Mueller investigation that Trump administration officials often ignore him when he gives them illegal orders, so... (shrug), maybe we will avoid that fate, in spite of him.
