When Trump tweeted that he "could have fired everyone"...

He named Mueller as one he could have fired by executive privilege and ended the tweet by saying: "but I didn't".

Was he pointing out how big he is or kicking himself in the ass?

2. It's pure authoritarian/dictator. It's Kill Bill Uma Therman chopping off

Julie Dreyfus arms (both arms?) and then telling her I could have killed you, now go tell Bill (to fear me).

It's gansta. It's unrepentant threats.

Impeach.

4. Pence is a strong Christian authoritarian who misused his power

as governor of Indiana. He was at grave risk of becoming a one-term governor after breaking his word to Indiana's voters and imposing on them extremist views most never intended to empower. He believes he serves the ultimate authority, his deity, but his ideology conveniently allows him to serve god through service to business and the ultrawealthy. The Kochs have had him on their short list for president for some time.

Just saying. Sure, we need to remove Trump. Also to be prepared for what comes next -- a far more competent president serving the same people who sorta, most of the time direct Trump.

5. Nowhere in the OP was Pence mentioned

And despite the cry of 'just saying', I simply cannot see any connection between your posted remarks and the comments made in the OP.

If you would care to elaborate further, I'm prepared to read a reasoned explanation. As the question stands, I can see no reason or connection to the OP within your post.

7. I was responding to CharleyDog. I don't know what

I said that sparked your two responses, or what the second one was. I'm assuming I didn't offend you by my opinion of Pence. If it was fear on realizing that removing Trump won't magically return us to safer times, I'd suggest you tackle it head on. Because the future will be in your face before you know it. We will live with what comes next.

But in these moments I always like to think of the sanity and desire for stability revealed in the midterms, greatly reassuring.

8. All cool

No need for prickles. I mistakenly re-replied, then deleted on realising. OK?

Buy why the continued references to Pence? Why are you suggesting that I may be offended? What exactly should I tackle head on?

Why the antipathy?

9. :) I'm just amazed at all the "impeaches" that aren't

followed by "and deep breath for what comes next." Huge denial of what we're up against.

Removing Trump has been necessary since before he was sworn in but will only eliminate those dangers unique to him. After that, we won't have a mentally disordered president sabotaging his own side any more. He'll be replaced by one who works in lock step with the massively powerful right-wing factions determined to take and keep power permanently.

3. Trying to show how big he was and still is

I would say that he's going to Hell, but he's already in Hell. He just doesn't know it. A lot of his crimes are known now.
