The GOP need to decide if they move ahead with or without him really.
I think McConnell has played a blinder politically. The GOP can get rid of him for good without having to do anything themselves and can then blame it all on the Democrats.

Delaying the impeachment trial until after Jan 20th will mean the Dems will need 17 Republicans on side to convict Trump but they wont need any Republican votes to ban him running again as they just need a simple majority for that. Problem with that is it will be seen as party politics. Some of the Republicans who would have voted to ban him running again won't need to because they know the Dems will have enough votes on their own. Therefore they can have their cake and eat it by keeping their base on side.

I think it's time for a 34th Amendment - establishing what misdemeanours will put the president in front of a firing squad. ;)

They need to go with someone with similar views but is also a bit more of a politician if that makes sense. 50% of people voted for Biden because he wasn't Trump, also Trump will have lost a lot of support because of what happened in Georgia last week.

Problem is if Trump or his son runs as an independent than the Rep. nominee has no chance no matter how good they are.

It's very sad that 5 people died in the riots but I wonder how many will die as a result of the spread of Covid-19 amongst that crowd.

Ivanka Trump's questioning what her career's gonna be and even where she will be living! I've given her Kai's address. :)

The guy in the horns is blaming Trump or claiming he was answering Trump's call. I'm sure many more will do the same. :D

I can neither confirm nor deny that miss Ivanka is currently residing with me, while her body double is stuck in Washington with the reptilian being they call Jared. I cannot comment on this.

But I will say that the annoying secret service guy Meechum is a bit of a third wheel though :evil:

Twitter share price well down since they banned Trump, but if these guys really hate Twitter and want to make them feel the consequences then they should leave the platform, it's like people who slate Betfair but continue to use it day after day.
