Trumps luck may finally be running out.

Trump has been extremely lucky so far. He was handed a very good economy by Obama. That helped protect him.

The Republicans in congress decided to break their oath of office and protect Trump at all cost.

Trump never seemed to pay a price for all the stupid crazy shit he did. That may be coming to an end.

The murder of the journalist from the post and Trumps response may be a big problem Trump cannot fix or cover up. Soon the Democrats will take the house. Does Trump know what a shark feeding frenzy looks like? He will.

The Mueller investigation will be ending soon. Tick. Tick. Tick.

38. Yup. Dubya was supposed to be the final death blow as well

Republicans simply pretended that he never existed after he left office. Wasn't even invited to first convention they had after he left office.

I predict the GOP will wring every ounce of putrid stinking swamp water out of him they can, fulfill their most greedy wishes. And they still are not finished with him. Then, as soon as the worm turns, the tipping point where they see his supporters shrinking and opposition with traditional Republican voters growing, they are ready to pounce. There will be self-proclaimed "moderates" from the GOP that will claim "we need to shift away from Trump" That they made a "mistake" when they hypocritically defended him after being honestly critical of him during their primaries. That they learned a lesson, and this new candidate will listen to all sides and restore civility and decorum back to the office.

And millions of Republicans and Independents will flock back to the new and improved Republican party.

43. I think they already have.

One: cut taxes, check
-side benefit, enables claim that entitlements must be cut because of the 'troubling deficit'

Two: rescind every regulation imposed by Obama, well on it's way.

Three: (the big win) Pack the courts with incompetent, RW ideologues for the next 40+ years

Four: (bonus points) normalize crudity, misogyny, racism, mendacity, and let's face it militant ignorance.

Unless he's impeached, convicted and removed from office with a majority of Republican senators in that vote the the stink won't wash off of them for a generation.

46. STACK The Courts...!!

 

Funny thing about life, is you never know what is around the next bend. A justice could retire or get sick or just want to rest after 89 years of service. It must be a great job as a Justice if a lot of these Jurists want to do this forever. In a perfect world, Jurists retire it seems , when it is a good chance to get a like minded replacement. Kavanaugh hearings set a bad President for Bad Blood. I know one thing for sure= The next Justice that's nominated, will not be a bunch of snooze-fest hearings !!!!

2. Unfortunately, Kashoggi's murder may be a win for Trump.

The Saudis will most likely stonewall any investigation and what will remain is the message that investigative journalists are at great risk of being tortured to death without any repercussions for people in power.

4. I predict things could get very nasty before year's end.

Trump reminds me of that honey badger video, if we can imagine one of those critters being cornered.

He absolutely cannot accept being wrong or seen as losing and I fear what his narcissism and psychopathy will bring out. What's even worse to imagine is what his hundreds of right-wing enablers and media freaks will do in concert with him, not to mention a few of his crazy fanboys in the red countryside if they see their dear leader going down.

But he needs a lot of feedback and ego stroking to do it. Thus the ever increasing rallies with his base. And if you notice (if you can bring yourself to do it) his rallies have become little more than cheers and chants. More and more it looks like the crowds are in control.

10. I dunno, Schockey80

Somehow I find it difficult to believe that to the diehards that are ride or die tRumpers and the supine rethugs in the congress and senate who enable him, that the death of an American-based Saudi journalist is going to make any difference.

Reflect seriously about the fact that Mueller is "going to issue a report" on the findings of his investigation. Note that this seems to indicate that the "report" doesn't seem to indicate that he plans to indict tRump. If Mueller were going to issue indictments, he wouldn't need to issue a damn report. He'd just file an indictment or indictments would be issued by the courts of whatever jurisdiction that are relevant would be doing so.

40. The timing of this worries me

Mueller is a thorough person and patriotic American, or so we are told. If he had found evidence of widespread Republican collusion, he wouldn't be waiting until after the election. His sense of duty and justice would drive him to let the Cons' sins be known in time for them to face their constituents. The timing doesn't fit with what we hold to be true about Mueller and Trump's / the Republicans crimes. A true patriot wouldn't hold a political headshot for treason until after the election

Mueller was picked by Trump's own AG office, could this ultimately be a long con and side show? Or did we're the tracks hidden too well and the big fish not hooked?

I'm still waiting for an answer to a very important question; did someone tell the CIA and NIA to not warn the journalist he was in danger? Someone needs to ask that question, like every anchor from the 3 cable news networks, too bad they are all complicit.

If Trump and or Kushner stopped our intelligence from warning the journalist they are accomplices to a murder.

We all know Trump could care less about the death of an enemy of the people, the death of an "it."

In the 2 years of hell since then, I've watched again and again and again as he kept getting away with shit that it just didn't seem possible that ANY sitting POTUS could get away with in this country.. but then again.. he keeps on somehow sliding right on through like some kind of toxic diarrhea..

36. Won't end until he's out, he has no feedback loop that would cause him to change

Many pundit said during the primaries that he was only putting on a show and he would moderate if in office. That misread his personality and history.

He's never changed anything except his story, i.e. "I never said I'd donate $1M if a DNA test showed she was Native American".

He'll continue to deny anything is wrong and proclaim he's on track with all his promises.

The best we can do is remove GOP power and block him at every turn until he's gone. We all wish it was sooner, but must prepare for later.

Trump is a fucking aberration - the normal rules don't apply to him. But with every scandal, every leak, every release, every investigation and ever crisis there is very small chance that this will be the one to break the spell. These chance don't add up, they are all independent, but the odds stay the same, eventually humanity, decency and civilization will roll a snake eyes and the turd will be fucks.
