19. yes... if there is a next election

 

I was thinking about the one hopeful thing is Democratics can try to win back the House and Senate in 2018. There should be enough backlash to Trump to do it by then. Then I was thinking about GWBush, and how unpopular he was after his selection after 2000, and hmm, why didn't the Dems take back Congress in 2002? Then I realized, oh fuck, 9/11. And then the march to war in Iraq.

I don't think it's going out on a limb to predict a national emergency (massive riots, terrorist attack) in the next year, that the Trump administration will use to grab more power and deflect public unrest. Then use that power boost to hold onto Congress, or worse...
