I know Trump is different, but just enjoy the sight of the republican party tearing itself apart for at leas a few months.
I'm torn. I would love for the entire Trump clan to just disappear or go to jail, but on the other hand, I'd love to see all the ass kissing Conservatives who sold their souls to bow to Trump have to decide between remaining in the GOP or joining the Patriot Party or whatever Trump drums up. Ultimately, he is far too stupid and lazy to actually found a viable party, but he is a master at letting others do the work under his brand. Get a Steve Bannon or some smart behind the scenes people to use Trump as the face of the Party, and maybe
it's possible. It'd be fun to watch the GOP implode and face consequences for throwing their lot in with Trump and failing to stand up to him at any of the 1000s of clear points they should have, but my fear is giving voice and power to Trump keeps the crazies at the table for longer. The more time that passes, Trump will continue to lose power and influence. His staunchest followers need a Daddy to guide them, and they will latch on to something or someone else, and Trump's influence will vanish. The question is, will his followers cling to a vocal, politically active cause, or will they crawl back under their rocks and return to irrelevancy?
