I read that Trump FINALLY gave up his android smart phone.

Background info: crazy Fanta Fascist rants are from the android phone. Somewhat sensible sentence structure is from an iphone.. likely from an unpaid intern.

ETA: Impeachment hearings should be #1.

2. Some kind of Melania sex tape scandal from the past
3. Air Force One being made out of solid gold.
4. A Trump golf course at the White House
5. Impeachment hearings
6) Impeachment hearings followed by anarchy, mass rioting on both sides, and incredible levels of Riots as the US splits on both political and racial lines.
7) America withdraws from NATO and also goes the isolationist fair trade is fair trade route. The World Economy crumbles even more, and the same time the military power vacuum in the middle East and Asia begins to be consumed by China and Russia.

I think it's only a matter of when that those golden shower videos get leaked.

I don't know why, but I also have a feeling Trump will die in office. Natural causes.

I'm going to speculate that Trump will be impeached some time within the next 4 years.

So my impeachment bet is that impeachment becomes a major issue in the 2018 midterms. With several republicans in states that abandoned trump campaigning for impeachment. These republicans will when and a sizeable coalition of disgruntled republicans and democrats impeach trump.

March 23rd 2019 is my bet.

I doubt he will be impeached, I also doubt that he will run for a second term.

March 23, 2019... so far away. Is it possible for it to be earlier?

I don't think the media can keep up with all the anti-Trump protests across the US and the World. Protests are popping up all over the place on Twitter.

People making these adorable impeachment predictions do realize there needs to be precedent- typically crimes while in office. It would be incredibly difficult, given the republican control of both house and senate, even with precedent.

Trump just has to perjure himself in the sexual assault case. Ex. Paula Jones.

But, probably doubtful the Republican controlled House would start it, unless they want him out too.

Republican options:

Don't impeach, President Trump
Impeach, President Pence.

You obviously can guess which is their preference. It's about timing for them, and when the timing is right they will move and get rid of him. He's already driven his poll numbers into W territory before even taking office. I mean if he's in the mid 20's by May or June, that'll be that.

Whether you agree or disagree with Obama's politics, I believe there's one thing which can't be argued - He's a good good man who represented the US and the "west" with a tremendous amount of grace and dignity.

Trump, I'm confident in saying, will not. America....WTF did you do ?? Like many have said, it's going to be a very interesting 4 years
