The Military, the National guard, and the Police will protect him.


As the National Guard is under the control of each state, sort of a tossup.

I would not count on military support. He has already alienated many of the "top brass" (edit: here's an example a couple of days later), and the branches have much stronger codes of ethics. This article "Why the US Military Usually Punishes Misconduct but Police Often Close Ranks" is a good summary.

I hope we never get to the point at which any of the assumptions about the behaviour of the military in the event of Trump attempting to remain in office if (when) he is defeated in the forth coming election. But I have my fears that those assumptions could be tested :-(

Can the U.S. survive another 4yrs of this brain dead idiot?

Trump's stream of subconsciousness becomes a torrent in car-crash interview.

The president’s incoherence and unchecked narcissism were given full rein for 40 long minutes in a TV evisceration
I'm convinced that he has a lot of loose nuts and screws inside that head of his.

Proof that v2.0's mouth engages before his brain does.

Alarm at Trump's unsubstantiated claim that Beirut blast was an 'attack'.

Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that the massive explosion in Beirut was a bomb attack has revived fears of the president’s potential to foment international crises.

In off-the-cuff remarks at the White House on Tuesday, Trump called the blast a “terrible attack”.

“I’ve met with some of our great generals and they just seem to feel that this was not some kind of a manufacturing explosion type of event,” the president told reporters. “It was a bomb of some kind.”

Soon after, CNN quoted Pentagon officials as saying there was no evidence of any attack, raising the question of where Trump got his information. Lebanese officials were reported to have sought urgent clarification from US diplomats.
Talk about having an "Idiot in Charge", it must be embarrassing for other officials to constantly correct his mistakes.

U.S. defence officials contradict Trump's claim of Beirut 'attack'.

But someone should take him in hand to explain how to read graphs and the maths behind them with a very big stick.

Trump still not grasping the severity of the pandemic.

When will #BlubberBoy learn that the virus isn't going to just "go away" because he wants it to.

Facebook removes Trump post falsely claiming children are 'almost immune' to Covid-19
(CNN Business)Facebook on Wednesday said it had removed a post from President Donald Trump's page for containing false claims about Covid-19.
The post was a video of an interview the President gave to Fox News on Wednesday morning.
"This video includes false claims that a group of people is immune from Covid-19 which is a violation of our policies around harmful Covid misinformation," Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone said in a statement Wednesday evening.

Stone added the specific comments that had run afoul of Facebook's rules were Trump's false claims about children being almost immune to the virus.
The same clip appears to have also been posted to Twitter by the Trump campaign, which was then shared from the President's main account.

Expect #BunkerBoy to be tweeting his head off about "witch hunting" again.

Deutsche Bank gave Trump financial records to New York prosecutors.

A report emerged Wednesday that Vance’s office subpoenaed the German lender last year in what the New York Times said was a sign that their criminal investigation into Trump’s business practices is more wide-ranging than previously known.

The report noted that this appeared to be the first instance of a criminal inquiry involving Trump and his dealings with Deutsche Bank.

The German bank, which has been a longstanding source of financing to Trump’s real estate empire, obeyed the subpoena and handed over records supplied by Trump to the bank during the course of applying for loans, the report said, citing unnamed sources with knowledge of the investigation.....

....Other investigators have requested records from Deutsche Bank, which was one of the few banks willing to lend to Trump after a series of corporate bankruptcies starting in the early 1990s.
It looks like everyone will find out how big of a crook v2.0 really is, it's just a shame that we won't likely see the outcome of this before November, as well as how big of a "phony" that he really is and how little that he's really worth.

SUPERTrump LOVEs to USE 'IMPRECISE' or 'NON-TECHNICAL/SCIENTIFIC' 'LANGUAGE'. 'Cause IT DRIVEs SO MANY
'CRAZY' aka EXPOSING dA NEVER TRUMPERs.

RUBEWorld KNOWs EXACTLY His Meanings. And SO DO dA 'OPPOSITION'. But 'They' ALWAYs NEED to Call Him Out
when His Words are NOT TO THEIR 'Liking'.

Let Me UNPACK SUPERTrumps Current FAUX PAS

RUBEWorld and REST of WORLD ALL KNOW dat Years 18 and OVER, 'specially into SENIORVille dA Number of DEATHs
DWARFs Number of Deaths of 0 to 17.

Therefore, using 'IMPRECISE' or 'NON TECH/SCI 'Language SUPERTrump MEANs: 'ALMOST' as in VERY FEW COMPARED
to a MASSIVE MANY. HE KNOWs NO ONE is 'I****E'. But ALMOST; KINDA; LIKE.

Get It?

Not true per se, this is a grand jury and the evidence is sealed, not until he is indited does the evidence become public.
Then after he is convicted does he get locked up.

Very interesting listen.

How did President Trump get his pandemic response so wrong?

Yep he's certainly a total "Failure in Chief" and all those with open eyes can see that. ;-)

I've never seen a news commentary like this before...

"CNN Reports: It is what it is..."


Masks are mentioned amongst various other comments from a recent interview of Trump in the White House...

Astonishing indeed... And very painful to behold.

You can see how hard it is for the Axios/HBO interviewer and the CNN reporter to try to stay deadpan.


How long can the Trump last?!

And at what cost?


Stay safe!!

What cost?
Over 160k deaths increasing at >1k per day.

As I type there are 87 days to the election, so that's over 87k more deaths, more likely to be nearer 100k, which brings the total deaths to over quarter of a million by election day.

Perhaps Trump has made America great again - the greatest incubator and deliver of Covid-19 to date on the planet. Which is a very perverted view of greatness in my book :-(
