He certainly seems to be nudging that way.

Serious question.

Because every ounce of my body says that is inconceivable. But then I thought him winning the election was equally so, and look what happened there. I just find it hard to fathom what the American public is capable of accepting, and so I have to entertain the idea that enough of the electorate might accept Trump as life-long president. Fuck knows enough voted for the wretched stain in the first place.

So it's a serious and genuine question - what do you think would happen (not 'what would you like to happen') if Trump made the same declaration on the presidency as the Chinese?

There was talk in “progressive” circles about repealing the 22nd amendment to allow His Most Sovereign Majesty Barry O’Bama to be President as long as his adoring public wished to keep electing. It was universally dismissed as silly talk.
The Chinese Constitution is, I guess, more amenable to such things than the American one.
No one in either party would countenance Trump suspending the Constitution. And besides he would be in his 80s then.
Yes. Trump talked about it. IT WAS A FUCKING JOKE. He wasn’t serious.
Before I take your absurd idea seriously, tell us how he would go about it, while st the same time preserving his coalition among those of us who put him there.
I realize that few presidents have taken the Constitution seriously since Truman, but this is much more serious than simply waging war without Congressional declaration. I blame Congress for that. This is about Power.

Stop having deranged fever dreams. 99% if the Republicans wouldn’t allow it. Nor would 95% of those who voted for him.

In China, Parliament abolished term limits. Not what’s his name. All legal and above board. :D

If the State Supreme Court has its unconstitutional way, that district won’t even exist then.


Until and unless the Federal Courts work their way through it assuming they actually grant certiorari, it is per se constitutional as the highest Court in Pennsylvania has definitively ruled.

Martial law is complex, but here's one possible path:

The Constitution allows Martial Law to be declared in the case of Invasion; Trump, and many of his supporters, consider the presence of "illegal immigrants" to be one.

If Trump declared it to be a national emergency, requiring Martial Law to deal with, I wonder if "95%" of his voters would object very strenuously.

Especially if the target was illegal brown people.

In case of Martial Law, we can depend on Trump's armed teachers to help out...

Thousands of Kids walked out of school to protest gun murders. Many of them will be voting for the first time this Nov. Guess who they will not vote for?

Maybe. Mr. T will have changed his position several times by then, based on how he sees it affecting the only thing that counts: him.

They do when they turn 18 and their parents vote. Hi Bill, JJ or random rightwing troll.
