I wouldn't put it past the GOP to pull the trigger on Trump themselves so they can try and spin it like they're the heroes for doing it. 

At any rate, it's looking more and more likely that it's going to be brought up, and soon.

If the Republicans impeach Trump, regardless of how incompetent he is, they shoot themselves in the foot. The Republicans' voting base will see it as backstabbing. The christian right is dead and if establishment Republicans want to remain relevant they have to court the alt-right, and Trump is still God Emperor to them.

BTW I don't even know why the fuck do we still call it the "alt" right. It's basically the "mainstream" right now.

Because they're not the Right but the Far Right, being alone doesn't change their position on this board, it actually means something. It's just that there's no Right, there's a Far Right.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

The alt right isn't the far right either. Most of the people the alt right worships are demagogues with heterodox policies. Trump himself is an example: back in the Republican primaries he was almost the only candidate (along with Jeb!) who believes the rich should pay more taxes. Trump built his plataform around hatred of foreign trade. He's barely to the right of Hillary on most issues outside of immigration.

Trump [] was almost the only candidate [] who believes the rich should pay more taxes.
Well, maybe he said that, but I'm pretty sure he's not doing it. Being a demagogue made him say that and got him votes from people who are neither far right nor alt right, but that's definitely not a thing he's actually doing, that's not his own policy. He himself was raised and advised by the likes of Bannon and his "news" site whose name I already forgot, which is resolutely far right in everything but name. And the far right uses fake promises and demagogy to get votes from outside their circle. Nothing that Trump has actually done should make you think he's anything but far right. The "alt right" movement was born form those guys, it was never anything more than rebranding.
If I struggled to the end of my determination, to the end of my way of life with my followers, if the result is ruin, then this ruin is inevitable. Grieve. Shed tears. But you cannot regret.

Oh, right, about the impeachment / no impeachment thing, one thing I was thinking about. Trump is being briefed on highly classified intelligence regularly. Right now he's leaking it to Russia. Whatever happens, impeachment or not, whenever this bozo gets out of the White House, he'll still have a lot of info about stuff that'll still be running. So... What's your bet on how long he'll stay free when he's back to being a civilian ? Bonus question : how much damage can he do, and / or how much money can he gain from that, in the mean time.

Fragile conservative snowflake needs a safe space to hide from the big bad liberal media.

Quote
President Donald Trump, amid his own swirling controversies, advised United States Coast Guard Academy graduates that while things aren't always fair, "you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight."

The comment was a clear reference to the fact that Trump's White House is now besieged by bipartisan questions about his alleged request that former FBI Director James Comey halt an investigation into his former top national security aide.

Then, dropping the pretext even more, he bemoaned the media coverage of his presidency.  "Look at the way I have been treated lately, especially by the media," he said. "No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly.

No president has ever been treated as bad as me, he says, forgetting about the three presidents who were murdered in office.

There has been 4 total presidents shot down. Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley (on his second term), and Kennedy, all died for their country.
Historical fact aside, with Trump not handling his own swirling mess of chaos leads me to believe that either A) he'll just brave through it until his impeachment shows or B) something horrific might happen to make this melting pot worse. Seeing as how he gave out secrets to Russia about Israel, I would hate to see what happens what he might do if an NK nuclear warhead touches shore on US Soil (let alone our allies).

Everybody already knew that the moment he opened his mouth in the primaries. Apparently you're still not getting that he's taking the rest of the country down too, including you. We don't misunderstand what you saw in him, we just think it was still fucking mental.
