Adviser says Donald Trump wants to resign

The demise of Donald Trump’s presidency is now inevitable, with his exit merely being a matter of when and how. Will the Republican Congress throw him overboard to try to avoid being wiped out in the midterms? Will a Democratic Congress impeach him after the midterms? Will Mike Pence and the cabinet invoke the 25th Amendment? According to one of Trump’s own advisers, Trump wants to resign – he just has hesitations about doing it.

All the way down in the last full paragraph of a new Politico article (link), you’ll find this reveal: “But Trump, too, is cognizant of the comparison to Nixon, according to one adviser. The president, who friends said does not enjoy living in Washington and is strained by the demanding hours of the job, is motivated to carry on because he ‘doesn’t want to go down in history as a guy who tried and failed,’ said the adviser. ‘He doesn’t want to be the second president in history to resign.'”

In other words, Donald Trump very clearly wants to resign. His only hangup, according to what he’s telling his own advisers, is how history will end up portraying him. He’s only five months into his term, and he’s still clueless about the realities of politics. So perhaps he hasn’t figured out that his historically low popularly will never recover. And perhaps he’s in denial about how his scandals will ultimately force him out of office one way or the other. But the key here is that he wants out, which is half the battle when it comes to getting rid of him.

How much worse do things have to get before Donald Trump figures out that his presidency has already failed, and that the longer he remains in office, the worse history will judge him? That’s unclear. But by his own words he already wants out, which means we’re closer to his exit than was previously known.

    He will fake a disease or some illness, and resign due to health.

    • Photocrazy on June 18, 2017 at 8:03 pm

      That is exactly what I was thinking when I read the article. I picture his wacky doctor that wrote about how healthy he was, writing another one on why Twitler is too ill to continue.

      • Donald McRorie on June 20, 2017 at 4:32 pm

        bad feet? worked before

    • Barry Epstein on June 18, 2017 at 9:08 pm

      Mental illness? Not faking!

      • Maureen A Russell on June 20, 2017 at 10:57 am

        Mental Illness is his way to get out. The man is bat shit crazy. He probably has a tough of Alzheimer’s Disease, after all his father had it. He is not fit or qualified to run this country.Get out while the getting is good, you will always be remembered in history as an idiot, liar and incompetent. Get over it, that’s who you are.

        • dave on June 22, 2017 at 1:07 am

          bet you think obama and bush were sliced bread too huh ?

    • mtskier on June 18, 2017 at 10:43 pm

      Bone spurs!!!!

      • Barry Wolk on June 19, 2017 at 12:37 pm

        trump would use the ‘bone spurs’ excuse again to leave the presidency but he can’t remember which foot it was!!

        BWA-HAHAHA-HAAAA!!

      • Pam Manabe on June 19, 2017 at 6:58 pm

        Very funny!

    • Etirzen on June 18, 2017 at 11:12 pm

      Health problems is precisely what I came here to predict as well.

    • Barrilero on June 18, 2017 at 11:33 pm

      I doubt a resignation is near at this stage. His youngest kid just moved to Washington with his trophy wife. Unless he does it befor school starts in August!

      • jay on June 20, 2017 at 1:27 pm

        You think he’s someone that cares about his kids school? The weekend Barron was so “traumatized” about Kathy Griffin, he consoled the kid by playing golf in Jersey lol.

    • John L. Schindel on June 18, 2017 at 11:51 pm

      I think he will blame it on someone else. “Melania begged me to quit” or “my children are sick of the attacks on me.”

    • Tom on June 19, 2017 at 12:24 am

      He already has some embarrassing for us in front of a laughing world.

    • JohninNV on June 19, 2017 at 2:08 pm

      Flare up of chronic bone spurs?

      • Thom Bowes on June 19, 2017 at 4:50 pm

        Excellent prognosis!

      • Anna on June 20, 2017 at 10:10 am

        Bone spurs of the brain perhaps ?

    • Doctoretty on June 19, 2017 at 2:57 pm

      I was thinking that too.

    • Shay on June 19, 2017 at 3:14 pm

      LOL Yep, you already know the game plan.

    • Wiser on June 20, 2017 at 2:25 am

      Don’t worry, Chump. The American people will still make certain that you get put behind bars where you belong for treason, fraud, and heinous sexual predator and racism crimes.

    • Gail Farrington on June 20, 2017 at 2:26 am

      No I think he will try to do something huge (terrible or devastating to our country and the world)..to make himself look like a hero before he leaves. He will blow up North Korea maybe thinking people will praise him for saving the world. Whatever he does you can bet it will put us all at risk

    • CherokeeLady on June 20, 2017 at 9:00 am

      LOL, yeah a stuffed up nose from too much sh*t from Putin’s Ass!

    • Universe on June 20, 2017 at 9:17 am

      His untreated syphilis will take him down by further consuming his little brain.

    • Teri on June 22, 2017 at 1:54 pm

      Yeah, heel spurs!

  2. Patty on June 18, 2017 at 6:44 pm

    Trump’s ego is way to big to resign. I’m afraid we’re stuck with him unless he’s impeached, has a heart attack or strokes out. Any of these 3 is alright with me.

    • Joe on June 18, 2017 at 9:23 pm

      or maybe Jesus will come back and tell him to knock it off.

      • Keith on June 20, 2017 at 5:22 pm

        He would listen to Jesus?

        • Claudia on June 20, 2017 at 7:44 pm

          No. As he is God

    • Greg on June 18, 2017 at 9:29 pm

      Ego aside, he is a coward at heart!! So he will take the easiest way out that will make him look like a victim in his diseased mind!!

    • jay on June 20, 2017 at 1:34 pm

      I don’t know:
      -He’s 70
      -He hates it
      -He actually is sliding a bit into dementia I think so he’s confused
      -He’s not achieving anything
      -Most important – he cuts and runs with regularity (casinos, wives, businesses, deals, scam schools, etc).

      I totally get that he doesn’t want to be seen as a “quitter” but he’s a hollow man – he only cares about finding a lie that’s just barely legitimate enough for him to buy and for his followers to believe (both have low bars).

      I think he will blame the Deep State and “concerns about the insane amount of threats against my family, much much more bigly than any other president before him, from the clearly violent Left.” Or some such crap.

      Afterwards, the Secret Service will confirm his threats about average for a POTUS but by then he’ll be tweeting about Crooked Hillary from Mar-a-Largo at the 12th hole.

  3. PatB on June 18, 2017 at 6:47 pm

    Aw…let’s give the guy a break.. Let him leave….BUT..he must promise to….1) Take Sessions; 2) Take Pence; 3) Take Sean; 4) Take kelleyanne; 5) take Bannon; 6) take Ryan; 7) take jared and Ivanka; and everyone and everything else that has contaminated the 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue since January 20, 2017

    • Tia on June 18, 2017 at 8:28 pm

      That sounds like a good idea!

    • Marilyn Harris on June 19, 2017 at 12:26 am

      AMEN, PatB!!

    • EricM on June 19, 2017 at 12:32 am

      PatB…no offense meant at all, but your post does demonstrate a lack of understanding of how Washington works…Trump wouldn’t have to promise to “take” any of them….there’s not a chance in hell any of them would survive to remain in a Pence Administration. When he assumes the Presidency (which, btw I don’t actually believe will happen as I think Trump will serve out his full term), he would get to choose all his own advisors & new cabinet….and I don’t think there’s a single one that would remain. (with the exception of Ryan of course….he’s an elected official & the administration has no power to keep or remove him.

      • Bill Palmer on June 19, 2017 at 3:24 am

        Cabinet members serve at the pleasure of the president. “President Pence” could keep anyone he wants, and get rid of anyone he wants, from Trump’s cabinet.

        • Rose Meade on June 22, 2017 at 1:59 am

          Bill—IF Donald resigns, does this mean he won’t have to answer to any of the crimes he committed while in office? Especially the BIG ones, like telling Russia it was IS that gave America the information. And how Donald called the leader of the Phillipines and told him where America’s Nuclear sub’s are!! What about all the rest of his administration’s answering for their crimes? Does Pence have the power to “forgive them”? He’s under investigation for Russia ties too!!
          We have been hearing that Donald has been wanting to quit since before March 2017!!

          • Bill Palmer on June 23, 2017 at 1:30 pm

            No. Resignation doesn’t bring any kind of immunity.



      • Anna on June 20, 2017 at 10:14 am

        I believe you took PatB’s comment far too literally !

    • lafcom on June 19, 2017 at 1:46 am

      Make those all a condition of his resignation but he must also take McConnell.

    • Marguerite on June 19, 2017 at 11:55 am

      Great comment! Let’s hope this happens soon, like yesterday soon. 😀

    • Mary M. Mansour on June 20, 2017 at 1:45 pm

      Excellent idea but he needs to make it quick. Those bone spurs can kill.

    • Kris on June 20, 2017 at 10:59 pm

      Perfect!

    • J Hickey on June 22, 2017 at 3:10 pm

      I agree. We will not be better until he takes the swamp with him & there’s a lot of them. I say due to the manipulations and lies we should have a new election for the Whitehouse.

  4. Linda on June 18, 2017 at 6:49 pm

    thanks for all the great information you provide and without pop-ups and all that other annoying stuff. I happily donated to your site 🙂 Keep up the great work!

  5. Donna on June 18, 2017 at 6:59 pm

    If Trump walks away,can he change his mind and come back? If he leaves, what happens to the investigation?

    • Bill Palmer on June 18, 2017 at 7:42 pm

      If he signs a letter of resignation and submits it to the proper office, he’s instantly no longer president. There’s no changing your mind after that.

      • Al Christensen on June 18, 2017 at 9:26 pm

        And he’s open to criminal charges, just like ordinary citizens, unless pardoned, right?

        • Barry Wolk on June 19, 2017 at 12:44 pm

          That is 100% correct, Al. The next President can pardon trump, however, the single exception is that a President cannot pardon anyone or anything to get out of an impeachment, but if trump resigns (like Nixon) he will NOT be impeachable! So, a Presidential pardon from the next guy would stand!

          FYI: President Ford was able to pardon Nixon (thereby ending our national nightmare) because he resigned so impeachment was out of the picture.

      • carol green on June 18, 2017 at 10:52 pm

        But, would resigning mean that Trump would not have to serve time for treason, obstruction of justice, money-laundering, and all the rest? Would he owe no fines? I want justice! The man is a criminal! I want him to pay! I want him to be impoverished. He owes the tax payers of America! He must be punished. If it were up to me, I’d take away his citizenship.

    • mtskier on June 18, 2017 at 10:44 pm

      He can’t come back but they can still investigate him. They can prosecute within 5 years – however we cannot try a sitting president so they only was to prosecute is for him to leave or be kicked out in 4 years.

      • Ernie Martinez on June 19, 2017 at 8:05 pm

        Then, he surely won’t leave.

    • EricM on June 19, 2017 at 12:39 am

      Donna…upon resignation (which, btw, I’m confident will not happen) what happens to the investigation can take two paths…
      1) it is all dropped as there is no real point anymore, in terms of “moving toward impeachment” (or even just sensure)
      2) as he is no longer Pres….if the Special Investigator actually believes there is evidence to prosecute, he could actually then be brought up on Criminal charges (which basically/theoretically) can’t happen while he is in office.

    • Petunia on June 19, 2017 at 10:47 pm

      Once Trump leaves the office. He is out, for good! The door gets locked! He could not squeeze himself back in! And, we make a gigantic party!!

  6. Xavier McPherson on June 18, 2017 at 6:59 pm

    pence has to go down, too — he’s worse than trump!!

    • DonD on June 18, 2017 at 9:18 pm

      We’ll work on that as welll.

    • Roland Winston on June 19, 2017 at 11:39 am

      that would leave Paul Ryan as President. Repubs love him. He will look ‘reasonable’ to the right and center. Might be really hard to beat in 2020

  7. Linda Stanley on June 18, 2017 at 7:01 pm

    An insider said pre-nomination that he never wanted to be president, just come in 2nd for the sake of his leverage in foreign loans, copyrights, patents, etc. SO, his excuse can be (since he loves to play the victim): “I have found that the skill set of a mega-billionaire businessman is far different from the presidency. I’m tired of dealing with people who don’t have the same commitment that I do. I would rather give my time and expertise to business, family, and worthy causes.”
    Someone pass this on….so he will resign without impeachment.

    • Candace Love on June 19, 2017 at 2:16 pm

      Too many big words.

  8. MJ on June 18, 2017 at 7:09 pm

    Perhaps the next big legal shock will provide the impetus to give it up. The coming week? The next? Not long, I’d guess. Anytime is too long,IMO, but we take what we can get.

  9. Coda on June 18, 2017 at 7:14 pm

    *head exploding* This will be one hell of a fourth of July!

  10. Feona on June 18, 2017 at 7:19 pm

    You said it correctly, the longer he’s in office the worse history will think of him. Everyday his divisive corrupt ignorance gets more imprinted into people’s minds around the world.

  11. Katrina Cordeiro on June 18, 2017 at 7:20 pm

    This all sounds credible, but wouldn’t that mean an end to all his quid pro quo deals that he got elected for?

  12. Barbara Smith on June 18, 2017 at 7:27 pm

    all he has to say is the country is in chaos because the lack of support for him so as an act of loyalty to his country he will step down..their I gave him an out!

    • robin barr on June 18, 2017 at 8:53 pm

      Exactly. And they’re coming faster than new Randy Rainbow videos.

    • A.Koehnlein on June 19, 2017 at 4:26 pm

      Sounds good to me.

  13. Mike on June 18, 2017 at 7:41 pm

    This is a good thing. It. Any happen soon enough

  14. Claudia on June 18, 2017 at 7:42 pm

    As long as they keep investigation going and everyone and thing, as there is no one above the law. And he needs to take his cabinets picks, start giving them notice.
    Then there is Pence, o gosh! He isn’t what we need either.
    But Trump legacy with be horrible, something he just needs to accept!
    Just one bad dude!

  15. Anita on June 18, 2017 at 7:54 pm

    We will think that he is very wise because he recognized that the job is.more difficult than he imagined.

  16. Eileen on June 18, 2017 at 8:00 pm

    As a narcissist he could never resign. BUT he could use a health excuse and he would not think of that as failure.

  17. James Kings on June 18, 2017 at 8:12 pm

    The news of Donald Trump’s desire to resign the U.S. presidency is no surprise! Among many despicable attributes, Trump is the ultimate “show boat” who very foolishly underestimated the job of the POTUS, as well Washington level politics! It’s a wonder to me that Trump has accomplished what he’s been able to accomplish with his tendency to speak without thinking and leap without looking! Trump’s history is filled with social and business disasters and his presidency is already a fail, but while his hesitancy to resign is quite understandable, it’s another predicament he completely created for himself through his typical carelessness!!

  18. Pence is complicit on June 18, 2017 at 8:19 pm

    He should just say the Trump Org needs him bigly so he has to go. On his way out he should rat out Pence and all the other traitors and obstructionists in the republican leadership.

  19. Caps_Nats_Skins_Fan on June 18, 2017 at 8:34 pm

    Linda Stanley on June 18, 2017 at 7:01 pm
    An insider said pre-nomination that he never wanted to be president, just come in 2nd for the sake of his leverage in foreign loans, copyrights, patents, etc. SO, his excuse can be (since he loves to play the victim):

    Exactly. It’s a publicity stunt gone bad for Trump and now he has to deal with the fall out from whatever Mueller & Co. find out (and they’ll find a lot!). Trump’s candidacy was nothing more than an exercise is self promotion – a way of squeezing some more money from NBC.

  20. Susan Childs on June 18, 2017 at 8:40 pm

    First, Happy Father’s Day to everyone but Trump and his crew of miscreants. I’m waiting for Happy Resignation and Goodbye Day for them. My only regret is we can’t get the Mercers, Kochs and all the other right wing crazies and dominionists.

  21. Larry on June 18, 2017 at 8:52 pm

    He can’t resign. Trump businesses relying on Presidential premium.

  22. Asher Garber on June 18, 2017 at 8:54 pm

    Donald…. Boobie…. Your legacy has been defined for decades. You are a true incompetent. Resigning will be your one attempt at achieving an ounce of dignity.

  23. James Simcoe on June 18, 2017 at 8:55 pm

    There could be a threat to publish the sex tapes if he does not resign. I see a domino effect, as he’s blown all ability of those around him to claim ‘privileged conversations’ due to his Tweeting. We could end up with Mattis as interim president if the guccifer.2 hacks turn out to include falsified election results. The two private clubs (Republican Party and Democratic Party) agree to an abbreviated new run. There’s much reason to agree compared to the atmosphere during the 2000 chad controversy.

  24. Peter on June 18, 2017 at 8:56 pm

    Wouldn’t it be ironic if he resigned on July 4th?

  25. Trump Hater on June 18, 2017 at 9:09 pm

    If he resigns won’t Pence pardon him. That would be the worst thing ever.

    • Bill Palmer on June 19, 2017 at 3:31 am

      If Pence pardons Trump, it will be the immediate end of Pence. Approval rating in the twenties, presidency crippled, zero percent chance in the 2020 race. Pence isn’t that stupid.

      • Leonie Belcher on June 20, 2017 at 7:16 am

        Yes, yes he is that stupid. Look at his history.

  26. Gail on June 18, 2017 at 9:09 pm

    Whether he resigns or not, he will go down as the worst president in history!

  27. greg on June 18, 2017 at 9:15 pm

    The president, who friends said does not enjoy living in Washington and is strained by the demanding hours of the job, is motivated to carry on because he ‘doesn’t want to go down in history as a guy who tried and failed,’ said the adviser.

    Waaaaaay too late for that, he’ll go down as the cancer on Democracy and an absolute fool that got elected by chance and some help with major disimformation and rethuglican/russian gerrymandering.

  28. Diana Karp on June 18, 2017 at 9:19 pm

    “that his historically low popularly will never recover.” HISTORICALLY!!! ugh.

  29. Peter on June 18, 2017 at 9:28 pm

    Only if he is convinced he won’t be prosecuted or that Pence will pardon him, the latter being more likely. If this happens before next year Pence and Co. may think enough people will forget a pardon by 2020 presidential election.

  30. Mary on June 18, 2017 at 10:02 pm

    I want him impeached, so he can take Pence and Ryan with him.

  31. Joetta Cory on June 18, 2017 at 10:07 pm

    The sooner he resigns the better for us and him.

  32. Bobbye on June 18, 2017 at 10:25 pm

    Resigning will be the best thing he has ever done for America and Ameicans..There should be no shame to his resignation.. Go for it. I certainly will support his decision to sign on the dotted line.

  33. Anna on June 18, 2017 at 10:25 pm

    Though I would love to see him gone from the role of POTUS, a part of me says he should pay for all his crimes against the USA. There is no doubt in my mind that he colluded with Russia and that there is a whole troupe of republicans who are in over their heads in illicit dealings with Russia.

    I suppose that, should Trump resign, the investigation would follow its course to completion and if there is sufficient evidence to indict him he could face a trail. But if Pence ascends to take his throne, Pence will immediately pardon him. Of course I’m banking on Pence also being so deep in this Russia “thing” that he too would be indicted.

  34. Michele on June 18, 2017 at 10:30 pm

    This would be great, no WONDERFUL, for our nation! He’s been a train wreck ever since he took over! His Healthcare bill is beyond DEVASTATING & CRUEL, not to mention his budget cuts, his ties to Russia, etc. The list is much too long to list and that alone is troubling. The investigation MUST continue because he’s definitely not alone in his contacts & collusion with Russia. Pence, Ryan, Mitchell & Sessions must have known what was going on esp after that article from Ryan that “we need to excuse Trump because he’s new to politics”. In other words, they were all “helping” him with his decisions & therefore I have a hard time believing they’re blind to his ties to Russia. Once they’re all gone then America WILL BE GREAT AGAIN!

  35. Jeff on June 18, 2017 at 10:30 pm

    If Trump resigns the entire administration should too! A special election should be held and let America vote again. It really doesn’t matter if it is a new Republican or democrat as long as everyone appointed by this traitor is removed and America starts again!

    • Barry Wolk on June 19, 2017 at 12:52 pm

      There will be NO special election as the 25th Amendment of the Constitution has succession rules in place to replace a sitting President for ANY reason what-so-ever such as impeachment, health, death, etc!

  36. geri brummond on June 18, 2017 at 10:31 pm

    I think Barbara Smith has the answer–brilliant!

  37. khandi on June 18, 2017 at 10:36 pm

    Promise him a big farewell parade with those tanks he wanted.

    • Nora Brill on June 19, 2017 at 12:26 pm

      Maybe the Queen could lend her coach for the parade!

  38. Ramsha on June 18, 2017 at 10:38 pm

    History is not going to portray him favorably anyway. So he may as well leave and enjoy drinking the Cool-Aid with his old buddies regularly I the Trump Tower.

  39. Bob on June 18, 2017 at 10:45 pm

    Any experienced city council member can find a plausible excuse to resign. It isn’t hard, and once you’re gone, you WILL be forgotten. Pardon yourself and all your partners in crime on the condition they resign too. It’d be an offer they couldn’t refusenik.

  40. b peters on June 18, 2017 at 10:52 pm

    You assume a level of ability to project the consequences of his actions and statements which Trump obviously doesn’t have. Trump only thinks in terms of what makes him money, and that’s it. He expects everyone else to make the sacrifices needed in society so that he can continue to take all the benefits.

  41. Zoot on June 18, 2017 at 11:25 pm

    I’m sure one reason for him to be hesitant is legal trouble he faces in New York. AG Eric Schneiderman has a portfolio of interests in money laundering, fraud and RICO actions. If he remains president, he can defer his trip to Ossining until out of office.

  42. Charlie Chaplin on June 18, 2017 at 11:36 pm

    I think we should start telling him that, because he is the greatest president ever, he has already made America great again, drained the swamp, and done everything else he set out to do. So only second rate presidents need a full four years to get things done. He can resign with dignity, go back to NY, get indicted, sent to prison … oh, no, wait, scratch those last couple. But you get the idea. Just a little spin, and we’ve got him on his way.

  43. Marcia N. Burns on June 18, 2017 at 11:44 pm

      Not really. If Trump quits, Pence is president. Pence could replace the current AG, who won’t fire Mueller, with an AG who will, just in the name of creating his own administration. Based on his reputation and who he has hired for the investigation, I believe that Mueller is our greatest hope at the Federal level.
      What we need is to give the investigations plenty of time. Watergate took a year and a half to complete and that was much less complicated than Trump’s case with all the shell corporations, offshore bank accounts, hints of money laundering, shady Deutsch Bank loans, and Russian ties. The longer the investigations take, the greater the chance of cleaning house and taking the most people down. In Watergate, 69 people were indicted and 48 were found guilty. I would rather be patient in return for a result like that.
      Besides, when Trump’s real financial dealings finally come to light, it might be the IRS who comes after him.
      Have hope. Be patient.

    Good lord, folks. Be careful what you wish for. I lived in Indiana back in the 90s. I know all about Mike Pence and, IMHO, he is not someone who should ever hold the reigns of power in this country. Just as there are some liberals I would feel comfortable voting for, there are also some conservatives I would feel fine voting for as well. But Mike Pence is absolutely not one of them. Nothing against the guy personally. I don’t know him. But I know a lot about him. The president may be a buffoon in some ways, but Pence would be a hundred times worse.

      All of you forget who’s next in line after Pence….PAUL RYAN! The architect of all of the crappiest health care law ever, and the budget, which is a massive giveaway to the wealthy. Be careful what you ask for!

    I don’t know.

    I’m afraid that what he’s desperately hanging on for is a domestic terrorist attack of sufficient magnitude that he can declare martial law.

    Essentially, what radical right-wingers constantly accused Obama of. That’s probably where he got the idea.

    Or from Dubya, who neglected terror warnings long enough (and lied about Iraq and WMD hard enough) to become the war-time President he had always dreamed of being.

    His decision to enter into politics was the worst decision any one ever made about anything! He could have slipped into the history books as a successful, very eccentric businessman that was successful in building huge gaudy buildings and entertaining the populace. His own lack of insight into himself that allowed him to inflict his personality on the world has doomed everything and everyone who has anything to do with this mega-idiot to crash and burn. All is lost in the Trump Kingdom. The whole gang will be the laughing-stock of the human species forever.

    Take the whole cabinet with him including Pence.

  49. Louie Louie on June 19, 2017 at 12:36 pm

    If he resigns, doesn’t he then become subject to criminal indictment? As long as he is in office, the president cannot be indicted. Additionally, he does have some levers of power to pull to delay, or obstruct the investigations. It’s not like if he steps down all the investigations will go away, right?

    • John on June 19, 2017 at 6:57 pm

      No he can be put on trial for crimes while as President. But Pence can pardon him. It would be best for America that most of the administration resigns.

      • Kelly on June 20, 2017 at 2:46 am

        If anything Mueller finds can be shown to have caused damage to a state, that state /s can file charges in state court. A President can not pardon anyone convicted at the state court level because he has no authority there, only federal court convictions.
        This is how the states were able to put a halt to the Muslim ban and Trump could do nothing about it, but insult the judges. Businesses and universities laid the claim that the ban was depriving them of important employees and expensive research had halted because the scholars conducting the research could not reenter the country.
        So a state can charge, convict, and sentence Trump and Pence wouldn’t be able to do a thing about it.
        This is another reason why giving the investigations time to dig up all the dirt is so important.

  50. Louie Louie on June 19, 2017 at 12:45 pm

    He could resign saying that the American People, aside from his base, are incapable of appreciating his wonderfulness. In other words, we just don’t deserve him.

  51. Elizabeth Weeks on June 19, 2017 at 7:18 pm

    This presidency needs to be annulled. Everything that has occurred since his inauguration should be nullified.

  52. Raelene on June 19, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    Now you-all, Be nice about what you say, as we don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings now. Just last week a bunch of his nice upstanding friends were saying how nice Trump is and what a good job he is doing. I am really surprised that some of those nice people didn’t bake him a cake. Like a exlax cake that is.

  53. Petunia on June 19, 2017 at 10:36 pm

    A President of our Great America should not be tearing it down with outrageous controversy. It is not good for the country when there is so much doubt and distrust with the threat of undermining of our democracy by the commander-in-Chief and his entire administration. For the safety of our Nation, Trump must step down along with his devious administration!

  54. Wiser on June 20, 2017 at 2:26 am

    Don’t worry, Illegitimate President Chump. The American people will still make certain that you get put behind bars where you belong for treason, fraud, and heinous sexual predator and racism crimes.
