The end of what I do not know.

2. Four years ..

Is there anything to stop him.

Of course he might wig out or stroke out,
but barring that, nothing can remove him.

No, I take that back. We can remove him,
but it would take massive organizing and
protesting in such a way that Reeps are
blocked from governing.

That can be done, but I'm not sure it will.

5. I think once they are in the run up to the midterms and the party

is starting to see the real damage he's doing to their party they will move. So 18 months for me.

7. His erratic behavior will push Repugs to force him out. They will use the kids to get it done.

8. Since I was wrong about everything in last year's election...

... I have no idea what will transpire. I was so horribly wrong about everything related to Donald Trump that I have to guess that whatever is the opposite of my thoughts will become true.

Ergo, Donald Trump will be re-elected in 2020, Congress and the States will rescind the 22nd Amendment and Mr. Trump will be re-elected in 2024.

Ugh.

10. He won't make it through this month

 

The outrage of the people is growing more and more each day. He's even losing a lot of his own supporters.

13. He supporters are loving this

As far as I can tell the outrage is confined to people who would never vote for him.

12. They will eliminate the restriction on the number of terms a President can serve.

Once that is done he will have a shot at being President-for-Life and the collapse of the US into a banana republic will be complete.

14. I'd like to think he'd be gone tomorrow via illness or resignation, however....

let's remember Watergate. That was fucking bad. It went on for months and months. That involved impeachable crimes easily: obstruction of justice, using the FBI against enemies, involving the CIA, suborning perjury, and other crimes. The House Judiciary Committee in 1974 eventually drew up articles of impeachment.

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

June 17, 1972: Arrest of 3rd rate burglars at Watergate

February 6, 1974: House of Representatives approved H.Res. 803 giving the Judiciary Committee authority to investigate impeachment of the President

August 9, 1974: Nixon finally resigns.


That whole clusterfuck took over 2 years to unfold. I don't have much hope for this ending quickly, unless Trump says something CLEARLY insane by any standard (even to highly partisan Republicans), dies, has a stroke, or resigns.

Sorry. I wish I could be more optimistic.

16. Long enough to force his businesses into the black, maybe.

I think he's already out of gas as even a part-time president, but he's got bills.
