The Umbrella
Author: Raine    Date: 04/09/2020 12:48:51

At this point, as one of my twitter friends put it, America is an umbrella.

tRump's umbrella.



It's far past time that he resign from office, and while many people say he will never leave, I came across a rather novel way that might make it happen. Bribe him..
So why not try offering him a payment to go away now, rather than leaving him to stumble over body bags for nine more months until Inauguration Day? Ten billion dollars might do the trick, especially for someone whose hotel properties are bleeding money under the total business shutdown he and the coronavirus combined to inflict on the country. Officially, it would be his own decision, one last great act of being in charge and making deals ($11 billion? You got it, sir!)

And then he’d be gone. Think of how big the upgrade from “man whose management experience took place for pretend, on TV” to “man whose management experience took place in Indiana” would be, even if the latter experience was had by Mike Pence! Pence’s own accomplishments in the public health field are pretty bleak, but even Donald Trump recognized he made a more plausible crisis manager than Trump himself. The first things Pence would do, probably, would be to fire Jared Kushner and stop making personal attacks on Democratic governors.

Imagine how much just those two things would help! Ten billion dollars would be a bargain.
America is hemorrhaging and it seems that 10 billion dollars is a drop in the bucket to stop the bleeding. Take the umbrella away from the Occupant of the White House and let it start to do what it was created for, protecting our citizens from the rain of deadly utter chaos. This has to end. Drastic situations call for drastic measures.

and
Raine

Not to bad compared to others in the world. I am fortunate that we are relatively healthy and are employed. Have my super bad days there the anxiety and depression get the better of me but still try to have hope that things will get better for everyone.

That's pretty much where I am as well.

I could agree with you completely, EXCEPT that #45 would want immunities-from-prosecution slathered all over the deal. I object to letting everyone walk who's violated the Emoluments Clause, not to mention numerous other laws, under this misbegotten administration's umbrella (ironic term, in this context) of protection-by-benign-neglect.
Am I wrong here, or would the write-offs be worth ridding ourselves of this walking cesspit?

He could just have Pence pardon him - he wouldn't need any deal.

There is also the possibility of prosecuting him on crimes he committed as a private citizen prior to his election. There were already a few cases on hold / in limbo.

The question is - would his insatiable ego allow him to take the deal? It would mean no more command performances, rallies, etc.

Hello Theo!


I know that is a downside. but we are looking at more deaths than the civil war at this point.

Greetings, comrades!

Heading out to stand in line at the ol' supermarket today. I'm going to the super-locked-down one because their supply line has been better; they have things.

I am still cooking for Easter, dammit. Although I'll be running a delivery service to a few folks that would normally come over.
