Trump to Address Nation (about what?)

I am going to reiterate my prediction of how the Trump presidency ends.

Donald Trump will call an address to the nation (I can't predict exactly when). All channels. He will say something like this:

"Fellow Americans, I come to you tonight to speak directly to you. It has been an honor to serve as your President. Together, we had such great hope in changing our country and making America great again. I have made a great sacrifice, as has my family, in being the 'tip of the spear' in draining the swamp and taking down the deep state that has for too long put their own interests ahead of you, the forgotten Americans."

"I can no longer put my family and close friends and supporters in harms' way. I can no longer ask the people I love, who have been loyal to me, to take on such great risk to themselves and their families. We have fought the good fight. We have won, where no one thought we could. We have attempted to make great strides, but the opposition to us, all of us, is too formidable. Both the Democrat party and most of the Republican party stand against us and against the much needed change that this nation cries out for."

"It is for these reasons that I announce the pardons of 34 people for any supposed, alleged, current or pending wrongdoings, of any nature. I will supply the list in a written statement before midnight tomorrow. In addition, I announce my resignation, as of midnight tomorrow, as the 45th president of the United States, and I wish our new President, Mike Pence, all the good luck in the future. God Bless you all and God Bless America."

Maybe sooner than you think.

If so it will be to fill the news cycle with his announcement of the Select Most Best Special Counsel on the Clintons.

elaborate press run on conservative networks.
.
I have a feeling whatever Trump is going to say today will be about something not that important, or something that he thinks he can take credit for (release of basketball players) .

We have to remember he is a pathological liar and a narcissist and a perennial conman. He loves gaslighting, and drumming attention to him just for the hell of it.

I remember when the Obama birth certificate story was going around and he was involved, he made this big production about some address he was going to make concerning the conspiracy, and of course nothing substantive was said. It was just a televised clip of him rehashing the conspiracy.

He could never speak in complete paragraphs.

Also, it's "Pence." (I made the same mistake recently and was corrected 6 or 7 times!)

about, just maybe, something that might be very good for everyone, including NK. I think we should hope that Japan's Abe and others successfully schmoozed and flattered him into agreeing to a rational plan, stepping back from his slouching toward war.

January 19, 2021. Except he won't be resigning, he'll just be issuing pardons. Because that will be his last day in office, either because he lost the election or because he was denied the nomination to run again.

Do you think Trump will allow his son and Son-in-Law to face indictment and trial?

Do you think that he will allow people to testify against his family, and maybe, Trump, himself?

He can't wait until January, 2019.

but, within a year, you'll see an address like that from Trump.

I believe it can't end any other way.

But honestly, I don't think it will ever happen that way. To easy.

Also, I'd prefer him to stick around and watch while everyone around him gets indicted. Last (orange)man standing. Then he can slink out.
