BTRTN: Ten Days in November... Would You Make This Deal to Get Rid of Trump?

Born To Run The Numbers on what life will be like after Election Day: a protracted crisis in which Trump wails that the election has been stolen from him, lawsuits filed in every state where Trump claims that the fraudulent ballots cost him the Presidency, and the outcome of the election is in limbo as societal polarization reaches fever pitch. But is it all so much posturing so that Trump can strike a deal?

Excerpts: "Stand back and stand by. With these words in the debate, the President of the United States gave a clear indication of just how ugly he will let things get as this nation tries to navigate one of the most consequential and challenging elections in our history... and as he personally tries to avoid the fate that awaits him if he loses...Here at BTRTN, we’ve long held that the primary reason that Donald Trump wants to stay President is so that he can stay out of jail.
"There is, perhaps, a broader vision of all of the above that provides a unified theory of all of Trump’s actions. Trump knows he is going to lose the popular vote again, and he can be pretty certain that this time he is going to lose in the Electoral College. His hope is to keep the vote close enough in just enough swing states that he can claim massive voter fraud, and sue to have enough mail-in ballots thrown out to put the decision in the hands of the Supreme Court. But maybe that isn’t really the point. What if his real goal is this: to amass enough leverage that he can cut a deal...Yeah, Trump doesn’t really want to take a chance on a Supreme Court that could easily slam him down 9-0 based on the speciousness of his claim and the absence of evidence of substantial voter fraud. If that happened, he’d be out of office – and completely vulnerable to all of the criminal charges that Vance, Letitia James, and the Feds can pile up... But if he could put together enough bargaining chips, bluster, and bluffing in the form of a threat to create utter chaos around the question of the election and transition, maybe he can create the perfect deal to walk away a free man..."

1. No deals. The piper needs to be paid this time.

We’ve seen criminals in politics return again and again. Breaking laws and damaging our republic.

We deserve a reckoning.

2. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO !!!!!!!!!!!!

First of all, this level of corruption, crime and devastation to America absolutely MUST have consequences. Severe consequences that fit the amounts grifted and stolen, the damage to our reputation and alliances, and the deaths of 220,000 and climbing Americans.

NO PASSES!!!!

Besides, even if one were inclined to make such a deal, not one single member of the tRump crime family can be trusted to keep their end of the bargain.

4. Good article ... especially it's final point that WE CAN AVOID THIS SCENARIO by orchestrating a

massive landslide that effectively removes any and all leverage tRump may have to cut such a deal.

We can do that! We can destroy this cancerous orange MF! No Deal -- Just Vote!
