Horrible realization

I just checked. McCain's death made me think about it. Presidents are automatically granted the honor of lying in state when they die. That means Trump will be entitled to that if he's not impeached and removed. You know he'll leave instructions for his family to do it.

Nixon's family had the good sense to decline that apparently. But as far as I can tell Nixon could have lain in state.

We'd Better Hope Trump Doesn't Get Impeached, Convicted and Removed.

I don't want Trump impeached or removed from office. Shocked to hear that? I'll tell you why. If Trump leaves office then we have Pence. After Trump's insanity Pence will look like a miracle to people. The news media will fawn over him and how he "cleaned up Trump's mess." How things are so much better now that the insane orange man is gone. Pence would be the savior.

That could easily put him in the lead for 2020. That would mean another 4 to 6 years of Pence, Sessions and their Religious Freedom Task force style of government. Which really means concerted efforts to put into place their Christian Sharia law. In their version of Christianity Corporations are just as holy as a fetus.

That's a more frightening thought to me than riding out the Trump nuttiness right now.

The spin will be "They forced him to do it."

I'm sure the immediate lie will be Trump knew nothing. Of course, the recordings will tell a different story. So then, they will spin it as something he HAD to do. It wasn't a choice. The Dems/Hillary/Obama/Media/Deep State/anyone backed him and his campaign into a corner over things that they will say didn't matter in the first place. That will be the PR spin for his base.

The legal spin for court will be:

They will say everyone already knew about the pussy tape and that he cheated on his fist two wives. So why would he need to pay off women in the first place to affect the election? No, he just did it to save his family the embarrassment. Had nothing to do with the campaign.
