For the sake of the permanent WH staff...

I hope Twitter gave Dump's doctor a heads up on cutting off his Twitter. That way, he could be on standby in the next room with injectible sedatives.
Or perhaps antipsychotics -- depending on how far this pushes him out of his already cracked and unhinged mind.

Trump says "I will not be going to inauguration". MAGAiot supporters hear:

"I won't be there, so it is open season on the attendees. Any Republican there has betrayed be by attending, so they deserve what they get".

"Impeach the president again" opinion piece, Boston Globe

www.bostonglobe.com/2020/11/21/opinion/impeach-president-again/


The meat of the article is here:

"If ever a presidential act qualified for impeachment, it would be openly trying to reverse an election outcome. While it sounds almost bizarre to make such a suggestion when the president’s term is over in two months, the move would have a useful byproduct: The Senate could prevent Trump from running again in 2024.

The impeachment clause of the Constitution allows the Senate to impose two possible punishments: “removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States.” While two-thirds of the Senate is required for removal from office in an impeachment trial, precedents involving the impeachment of judges indicate that only a majority vote would be required to make the penalty a disqualification from future office.

In other words, the House of Representatives could impeach Trump before his term ends, and the Senate could take up the matter after he leaves office. The question of removal would be moot at that point, but disqualification would still be on the table, and the Senate could determine that a majority vote would suffice."

I was so naive 4 years ago

I never thought he would last 4 years in office. I had no real conception of how a sociopath could surround himself with enablers and stop following rules and norms he did not like. I didn't realize that the 25th could be defanged. And I still can't believe that over a third of the adult people in this country continue to support him.

The term "Pack the court"

The republicans are emphasizing that this is what the democrats may do, while claiming they (the Repugs) have done no such thing.
And what the Repugs have done might not meet the historical definition.
A more accurate terminology for what the Repugs have done could be "Hijack the Courts".
Democrats are now attempting to Free the Courts from this successful hijacking at the hands of procedural terrorists -- - McConnell and his cronies, and the dark forces behind them.

Nicole Wallace - Pence was "limp and lame" n/t

If Pence doesn't have COVID yet

He's sure to get it when Trump calls him over to the white house to yell at him for his "weak" performance in this debate.
Trump won't wear a mask, the room will be small, and if Pence wears a mask Trump will scream at him and shame him until Pence takes it off.

Page even speaks louder over Kamala than she does with Pence

On the very rare occasion that she finds a need to call time on Kamala.

I am amazed that Kamala

Is able to keep from guffawing at some of his most egregious lies.
I know she is too skilled and classy for that. And I admire her restraint.

Is the inpatient team incompetent, or do they actively despise this administration?

Are they so incompetent that they did not let Trump know that a psych hold and evaluation would be the immediate result if he tried to leave the ward to take a joy ride?
They would then rely on Trump having the decision making capacity to choose NOT to pull this stunt.
OR, if he tried still tried to go ahead with it, he would further prove to them that he is incapacitated and needs immediate psychiatric evaluation and care.

An alternative is that his medical team despises him enough to let him further self-destruct in the public's view through this selfish and crazy joy ride.
I had thought that this medical team actively hating him and trying to sabotage him was a possible reason that they agreed to his idiotic demands as to what can and can't be released during the 2 inane daily medical press conferences thus far. Trump and the admin would have been better served by a bland daily written statement from the medical team. These farcical press conferences have even further destroyed this admin's credibility.
