I’m sorry, what?

Courtesy of Axios:

President Trump, who rarely focuses beyond the moment before him, is starting to acknowledge the growing chance Democrats could very well win in November — and very well try to impeach him.

The big picture: A few months ago, he was scoffing at midterm consequences for him. But now Trump has heard the dire warnings from enough advisers that he’s shifting into salvation mode, sharpening his campaign rhetoric and privately contemplating life under subpoena — and the threat and reality of impeachment.

He has already told confidants how he would run for reelection in 2020 if impeached (but not removed) by playing the victim card.
A source who’s discussed the midterms with Trump said: “He has repeated to folks that, if the Democrats impeach him, it would be a victory, politically, because it would be a complete overreach and he could exploit it and run against it in 2020.”

Okay well, I guess the fact that he at least recognizes the possibility of being impeached means he is finally starting to recognize facts. 

However the idea that it will help him in 2020, I think is insane.

Yes, his base will surely turn out and vote in lockstep, but the other American voters, you know the intelligent ones, are going to show up in droves to get him out of the White House. 

I think the reports by Omarosa and others that Trump is mentally unhinged are clearly being proven accurate.

    I’ve said from the start that he’s going to be ushered out kicking and screaming like the petulant toddler he is.
    Re-election or not.

      That’s been my belief as well. If the worst happens and he wins re-election, I still don’t think he’ll go quietly after the second term is up. He’ll play the victim, claim he never got a chance govern, that the investigations into him were all illegal, etc, etc…

      For someone who does so much “winning” he sure does whine and complain a lot.

    It was bad enough that the Trump administration took $10 million from FEMA to fund migrant detention camps – especially as climate change generates stronger storms like the one we’re seeing barrel toward the Carolinas.

    But Rachel Maddow revealed on Wednesday that it’s actually much worse than that. The administration didn’t just take money from FEMA; they took nearly three times more – $29 million – out of the U.S. Coast Guard to fund increased ICE detention operations.

    The Coast Guard, of course, is the branch of the U.S. armed forces that is often on the front lines when it comes to rescuing people caught in a devastating natural disaster.

    Just ahead of hurricane season, Trump thought it would be a smart move to take money and resources from them and hand it over to ICE, his pet government agency.

    Can’t wait till they drag him out kicking and screaming that big fat old cry baby. He pissed me off royally claiming some kind of victory of the Puerto Rico hurricane last year. Throwing generic paper towels are drowning people is something out the the story of Evita Peron.

    I imagine Trump got beat-up or picked-on a lot when he was a kid, which explains the arrested development. My hope for 2020 is that Trump is on his way to wearing an orange jumpsuit.

      WRONG> ““The Trumps: Three Generations That Built an Empire,” said the president’s persona still reveals his {MOOT from} Queens roots.”
      “the president and his siblings had a “more than comfortable life,” but the rules were very strict in the Trump household. From the start, Fred and Mary taught their children lessons about money”
      “Trump attended the Kew-Forest School on Union Turnpike, where he was known as a rebellious student who always pushed the limits..
      “Erasers hurled at teachers and cake flung at birthday parties were notable examples of the problem-child behavior that separated Donald Trump from the other kids at the private Kew-Forest School,”
      “In “Never Enough,” Trump is quoted saying he is not much different now than when he was young. “When I look at myself in the first grade and I look at myself now, I’m basically the same,”
      “Trump and Peter Brant would take the subway into Manhattan without their parents knowing-The two would go to a magic store on West 49th Street and Broadway-“There they bought stink bombs and smoke bombs and plastic vomit,” “Another favorite was hot peppered gum, which they gave to unsuspecting schoolmates. After seeing ‘West Side Story,’ they became fascinated with $witchblade$.” When his father found the $witchblade$, Trump was sent to the New York Military Academy”
      “Trump confessed it’s been years since he’s ridden the subway, but he did reminisce about his childhood.
      “It’s been a long time. It’s been a long time,” Trump said. “I know the subway system very well. I used to take it to Kew-Forest School, in Forest Hills, when I lived in Queens. And I’d take the subway to school. Seems a long time ago. I’d take it from Jamaica, 179th Street. Jamaica, RIGHT? To Forest Hills. I understand the subway very well. I used to ride between the cars.”

      “Trump’s aspirations were always to be in Manhattan.”

      ‘During the January 11, 1975 episode of All in the Family, titled “The Jeffersons Move Up”, Edith Bunker gave a tearful good-bye to her neighbor Louise Jefferson, as her husband George, their son Lionel, and she moved from a working-class section of Queens, New York into a luxury apartment in Manhattan.’

    Congress still has not removed the electoral college. That is the whole problem. We have running water and electricity and trains and cars and roads and internet – we didn’t then – and so now the electoral college is obsolete and counterproductive and therefore a big error.

    McCain Family Slams GOP’s Use Of Late Senator In Attack Ads
    “The family is disappointed that John’s image is being weaponized” by the National Republican Congressional Committee, a friend said.

    So, they support Trump when he insults McCain and don’t defend McCain, but then use McCain in their ads? Damn. Talk about nerve.

    “According to the journalist Bob Woodward’s new book, Fear, Manafort is not alone in having a deal with Trump. Thirty-seven witnesses who have been called to testify so far in the Mueller inquiry are part of a joint-defense agreement with the president, which allows them to share details about what they told the special counsel. Michael Cohen, the president’s former personal attorney and fixer, also had an agreement with Trump, but he backed out earlier this summer when he decided to cooperate with New York prosecutors.”
