    It seems obvious, at least to me, that the orange top is planning for Ivanka to run for President in 2024.

    Lord preserve us. An even more out-of-touch dilettante than we already have.

    The terrifying part of an Ivanka candidacy is that it is an entirely plausible scenario.

    I doubt that.... however...

    We laugh at Ivanka Trump – because to take her seriously is frightening .... (I love the look of disdain on Lagarde's face in the video)

    We laughed at The Donald for 20 years and look what that got us.

    It took a perfect storm to get him in the White House (Comey, Putin, Hillary, electoral college) and he still lost by 3 million votes. I doubt that he will catch lightening in a bottle again.

    But that is the crazy thing about the US system.
    The combined will of the people ultimately doesn’t count

    It is a different perfect storm in 2020. Trump will lose the popular vote by an even bigger margin but he will challenge election results in key districts and with a Trump pawn installed as attny General and a stacked Supreme Court he might prevail. The House should be the ultimate certifier
    of electoral votes but who can predict what bizarre tactics the Big T will try... He certainly will not depart the WH gracefully. He would gladly abuse every protocol rather than relinquish the trappings of power.

    The best case scenario is for Trump to be giving a 4th of July tribute with Pence next to him, standing together on a balcony. At that moment, Trump has a stroke, falls into Pence, and they both tumble from the balcony to their ultimate demise. No funny business on the next election and as a country we can all just move forward and pretend his 'presidency' never existed.


    It could happen.

    Damnation. And I thought I was an optimist.
