What tRump will do if he loses (I wasn't thinking big enough)

By | Tuesday, September 22, 2020 Leave a Comment

Early in August I wrote a post suggesting that the best thing dOnald trUmp could do for himself was to drop out of the race. He wouldn't have to face losing, and Pence could pardon him.

But ohhhhh, nooooo. Clearly I am not Machiavellian enough. Clever enough. Evil enough.

I recently heard a theory of what tRump will do if he loses that makes my ramblings sound like the innocent whimperings of a child. 

If tRump wins, well, that's it. Game over. 'Nuff said.

But, lets say that tRump loses (please, oh please), by however much; a landslide or just 1 electoral vote. What does he do? He spends the time from November 4 to late January (let's say the 18th or 19th) fighting the outcome. Claiming rampant voter fraud, erroneous mail-in ballots, "Blue State" Governors, the "Deep State", foreign interference, and on and on. He'll start lawsuits in every state, and he'll fight, fight, fight to stay in office. No surprise there.

But, lets say it gets to the 18th or 19th of January and it is clear that he is out on the 20th at high noon. What does he do? What can he do? Well, paraphrasing Adam Schiff, "A lot. He can do a lot." And that lot is to pardon everyone (everyone that he likes, that is.)  He issues blanket pardons for any and all crimes, committed before or during his presidency. He pardons his kids, his children-in-laws, and his grand children. He pardons Bill Barr. He pardons Mike Pence. And Steven Miller, Mike Pompeo, Steve Mnuchin, Mark Esper, Betsy DeVos, Kellyanne Conway, Louis DeJoy, and on, and on, and on. He might even pardon Brett Kavanaugh (it is a weird idea for a President to pardon a Supreme Court justice.) And then... he resigns.

Yup, the day or two before the inauguration of Joe Biden as the 46th President, dOnald tRump resigns from the office, making Mike Pence the 46th POTUS for 1 or 2 days. Pence does one and only one thing. He gives tRump a blanket pardon. tRump is pardoned from rape, sex with minors, collusion, treason, fraud, and murder for hire (we all know that must have done that at some point in his past.) Then Joe Biden becomes the 47th POTUS, and tRump and his cronies are free as birds.

I'm sure I would have thought of that if I were capable of thinking like a villain like tRump. Thankfully I am not.
