Really DONALD TRUMP as president of the United States? Thats a completely insane idea. Never gonna happen. Even Republicans wouldnt stand for it.
-Hell get his ass kicked in the primaries.
-The Access Hollywood video will destroy him.
-His insulting a Gold Star family and Senator McCain will cause an erosion of support.
-Hell be buried by a Democratic landslide in 2016.
-Hell be thrown out of office by 2017.
-The Stormy Daniels scandal will ruin him.
-Wait until the Russia collusion ALL comes out!
-Wait until the money-laundering documentation comes out!
-Robert Muller will torpedo him.
Clearly, American politics and specifically the Republican Party arent what they once were. Nothing should be considered off the table. Theyd be ecstatic if any Trump Donald, Junior, or, crazy as it sounds right now, Ivanka could be a figurehead for American far-right nationalism.
From The Daily Beast, 11/24/18, on this unlikely but possible scenario
What If Trump Actually Tries to Serve Three Terms?
by Matt Lewis
The rise of Donald Trumpa president whose authoritarian tendencies are on full displaymakes what might otherwise seem like a paranoid concern a little more plausible.
[Regarding Trumps repeated joking about a third term] This was shtick, but humor can be a safe way to launch a trial balloonor to inject an idea into the public sphere. The fact that Trumps audience laughed and applauded his comments is less than desirable.
One potential worry could be that a president could use some sort of national emergencysay a widespread terrorist attackas a pretext for postponing elections. Im not suggesting some sort of false-flag operation, but instead that a legitimate national emergency provides an opening. (This wouldnt be entirely unprecedented. After the 9/11 attacks, then-New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani tried to extend his term for three months.)
But its wiser to overreact than to underreact. Liberal democracy is precious. Even if the odds are slim that the president would try to take a page from Putin and Ximen, it seems, Trump admiresthe stakes demand that we remain vigilant.
