I’m sorry, what?

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.
