I wouldn't be surprised to see Trump run in 2024 after he loses in 2020

He would still be eligible.

Just a scary thought that 2020 won't be the last.

Or is it the Hague?

Come on.

This country doesn't send the powerful to prison. It's a nice thought though, but that's all it is.

27. I think he was destined for the White House.

At least my state still has Russ Feingold (somewhere). We once had some true statespersons up north.

Our three Democratic senators are more than adequate. Moe-Ron Johnson is our comic relief though. He'll be in the minority party soon.

Cholesterol and or drug abuse will addle his brain or whatís left of it. Or, he will stroke out by then. Junior, however, might be a concern. All of the rubes already have their flags and will want to use them.

20. We can only hope.

 

If he's not dead by then, he will pretty much be a drooling vegetable. I was watching the documentary "Unfit" last night and one of the psychologists/psychiatrists was saying that with the type of mental deterioration he has, it can only get worse. It will never improve. He will only go downhill from here, and the drug abuse will just accellerate that process.

I am hoping his kids will all be in prison by then.

They made so much money off the republicans and the federal government in recent years they are not going to let that golden egg gone. it's once in a life-time opportunity. They will milk it for as long as they can.

23. All the more reason to keep investigating him after the election.

Everything needs to be exposed so his hateful influence can be stopped.

German right-wingers are marching with Trump flags now -- the swastika is outlawed so his image has replaced it. He can still do a lot of damage, even if he isn't president or re-elected.

25. That one I'm not concerned about.

The Lincoln Project (and like-minded Republicans) will be able to prevent him being nominated by the Republican party. (And none of the mini-Trumps have the following or street smarts to pull it off.)

ETA: And I'm one of the folks who keeps yelling at everyone to stop taking a Biden win for granted (and I was also raising caution flags in 2016 when we were so certain Clinton would win). So this isn't Pollyanna talking here.

It does seem that candidates keep getting older and older though.

Heck my grandparents made it just short of 90. They did alot in the 28 years between 70 and 98.

And he'll be about the same age as Biden when he runs for re-election, so we shouldn't hit that note overly hard.

If Trump loses he will immediately attack Biden once Biden is in office. Trump's supporters will lap up every tweet and comment. Trump will still have huge media presence and be able to dictate nominees.

It if foolish not to understand the potential for Trump to maintain support and run again, especially if Biden's approval drops and Democrats have a weak 2022 midterm.

Trump and his supporters would use that as evidence of blood in the water

He will break 200 years of decorum and civility to just statisfy his ego.

Trump is a fool. We all know that.

But we have underestimated him at EVERY opportunity. He's not even supposed to be there. That happened because we underestimated him and it's a mistake we keep making over and over and over.

As for jail? Right. He's going to same jail that W went to. (remember that one!?)
