Has anyone else thought about the "Post-President Trumps Era" when we.....

.... are confronted with considering a Donald Trump Presidential Library, the unveiling of his official portrait at the White House or (on a happier note) whether he should lie in state under the Capitol rotunda in a place made more holy today by John Lewis?

1. He does NOT deserve such honors.....

Lying in state at the Capitol Rotunda? No embalming procedures will stem the stench of Trump's rotting corpse.

Presidential Library? A deserted Gas Station around the corner from Mar-A-Lago. Won't have any books there.

Presidential Portrait? Perhaps at the Ringling Brother's Museum in Baraboo, Wisconsin to hang it with other famous clowns.

2. As much as I'd like to see him bashed/ignored for all of eternity,

he was elected Prez, even if by the deplorables of this country. I’m not going to his “library,” watching his funeral, or missing him. He’s no John Lewis, and 90+% of the deplorables know it.

I bet even GOPers distance themselves from trump quickly.

4. The election was stolen in three swing states by voter suppression and leveraging the Electoral

College. An institution that should be ended.

13. We lost because of Comey, Democrats who stayed home and pouted or voted for trump

because they were mad about primaries, at least one major Dem continued to bash Obama — and Clinton by association— right into October 2016 over TPP, complacency from big lead in polls, lies, etc. Hopefully, we won’t do that again.

Agree, Electoral College should end, but it won’t anytime soon.

3. They can rename the library at the Prison where he (Goddess willing)

Will be spending his remaining days in the not too distant future.

As far as the "lie in state," I'm sure St Basil's Cathedral would be more than willing to accommodate.

5. This! I'm sure there's a prison library somewhere

Just waiting for his name to be put on it!

6. Maybe a croc will get him at nightmare-a-lago, and we won't have to deal with any of this.

7. None of that will happen. He will not be rewarded, memorialized, or celebrated.

He will die as a sad stain on our democracy that we will hopefully learn from and never repeat.

8. Respectfully, there are a lot of things that are more important

Like an election in November.

I honestly mean no offense. A Trump library is about #4,852 on my list of important issues.

9. Trump was Impeached. How does that warrant any honors?

His base can donate their rent money to build a Trump memorial library if they want to, but how does it cost to put up a storage unit to house all of his collected lies on a thumb drive?

15. I don't want a dime spent on memorializing Donald J. and would actually like to see him lose...

....Secret Service protection before and after he goes to prison. But your comment made me wonder about President Andrew Johnson, also impeached, and whether he has a library. Turns out he does, a rather modest one in Tennessee.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/President_Andrew_Johnson_Museum_and_Library

I'm going to have to suggest that the "impeached" (but not convicted) standard would preclude any honors for President Clinton, not that there is any other comparison of the two. Bill already has two of the honors that I mentioned and I hope that I live to see the third.

10. Reopen Alcatraz for tRUMP, his spawn, and minion enablers in his administation & gov't.

And upgrade only for security reasons, not for any comfort reasons for the prisoners and make them live under the same conditions as it was years ago. That would be a fitting end for them.

12. Investigations which will reveal him to be a traitor and a fraud ( even more than now)

means he should not get any of those honors.

anything concerning him should be in a museum.

And I believe libraries are all done by private funds.

14. The trick to the Library is that he must create a foundation

... to raise the funds and manage the property, and Trump doesn’t have a good record with foundations and I my memory serves correctly, wasn’t he prohibited from having another charitable foundation or was that just for New York?
