US Politics: “How did we come to this...”

Recommended Posts

Just now, Tywin et al. said:

In this implausible scenario, Pence would be the nominee. 

I'd gamble that Haley would step in as the new VP, or dare I even say it, Liz Cheney.....

For the record, I also don’t think Trump will drop out.  If America is going to purge itself of Trumpsim it will have to be at the ballot box.

Assuming there are free and fair elections in November.

I would consider it an unequivocal victory if Trump dropped out.

Trump isn't dropping out, but if he did, it would guarantee a Biden victory.  Make taking back the the Senate nearly assured as well.  It'd be an unequivocal loss for the GOP.  Anyone that thinks otherwise doesn't understand American politics.

If he died and pence ran for him it might work.id also be cautious about making absolute statements in this environment - there are currently 4 major scandals going on TODAY that would normally cause a presidency to roll over and die, and yet 40% of the population approves of him.

But no, he ain't gonna drop out unless he makes more money and fame that way or loses less. And right now that isnt the issue. That isnt how narcissists work at all.

That's entirely different than the incumbent president dropping out four months from the election.

He may not drop out, but there's a chance his science denying ass may have the virus by November imo.

AP reporting that Bolton told Trump about Russia bounties in March of 2019.  Bring him back to testify?  Bolt-on!

Yea, that’s the other thing.  I’m not sure Trump dropping out actually helps the GOP anyway.  Biden has a head start on any new challenger and the R’s don’t have anyone on deck that can generate Trump level enthusiasm.  

I don't think Biden does have a headstart. He's been running on being invisible. If someone else steps in, Biden would suddenly have to run like a normal politician.

Speculation that Trump may drop out of this race. Given Joe Biden's whole strategy is to pretend he isn't running, Trump has nothing to lose by participating in debates with him. If he drops out, Joe's probably in more trouble. The Democrats can't see past next week.

So you're criticising the Democrats for the strategy of the guy they've picked because it's possible that he's being so successful Trump drops out, which means they might then struggle more, and they're meant to have predicted this?

They've banned a couple different threads, and Youtube just banned a bunch of the bigger white nationalists.

About two hundred subreddits were banned that had more than 10 active users, and looking at their file really there's only a couple of dozen sizable ones. Still, a good move on Reddit's part. Will be interesting to see if they'll be quick to push down any attempts to revive them under different names.

This cuts both ways. The_Donald was bleeding users the last while (would be interesting to know when this started), but the much more popular leftist ChapoTrapHouse subreddit (dedicated to a podcast,  I think?) was also banned for similar reasons of violating community standards, advocating violence, etc.
