Trump General Discussion

However, even then, I have to imagine dems would filibuster anyone to extreme - the gop won't have a supermajority, and I can't see McConnell pulling the nuclear option.



I definitely understand that Trump is a shock to the system and can be quite scary, and I don't mean to make it sound like gut reactions are stupid. I do think alleviating likely baseless fears is a worthwhile endeavor for the sanity of the country, right now, though.




but it's not baseless. as we've seen, anything can happen. institutions can crumble to populist fervor. societies do collapse.



Trump *will* nominate conservative judges, and hate groups like NOM will bring cases, and they will get favorable rulings in conservative courts. What if he gets 2-3 SCOTUS nominations?

the fears i hear expressed by PoC and how to talk about this election with their children are not baseless. it's impossible to ignore what happened on Tuesday night, and how racism and misogyny and nativism and white identity were affirmed by a large enough section of the electorate. even if people decided that his blatant racism and sexism weren't enough of an issue to prevent them from voting for him on other issues, that still makes these people racist and sexist. and homophobia is just a subset of sexism.



in general, i agree with you. but my fears -- and the fears of other people who aren't white, or straight, or male -- are not baseless.

Jimmy Kimbel even did a sleepy time Carson machine commercial.

I'd like to see Obama get Garland on the court somehow.

It's fucking preposterous that we've only had 8 members since February. Will of the voters? She won the popular vote.

Wouldn't that be poetic justice... Trump gets indicted 😂

What happens in such a case? When a president-elect can't serve? Does it go to Pence or does it go to the Republican Party as a whole?

Is that a criminal case, though? I think it's just a civil suit.

Trust me, I'm not laughing. Can you imagine the thoughts going thru Obama's head during that meeting.

He's one incredibly cool headed man.

It still doesn't negate the fact that Trump will be the first to gain so much outspoken approval from the Klan. You're still being conned.

I don't know, I'm not a lawyer. It's probably civil, but falsifying education sounds pretty criminal to me...

When Trump's victory happened, his impression was the first thing I thought of. On one hand it means nothing to him (ie he's officially done in formal politics, assumedly). But on the other hand, that was his successor that failed. He had to get ready to eat his words.

To be honest, I imagine he's serious until the end though. He's so level headed that I feel like he's focusing on what he can do to curb the Trump desires that are social, and help transition Trump into the economic and foreign policy spheres.

Oh I agree. Really curious. I had read something about discussion on a possible settlement, so I assume it's civil.
