    Yeah except you know your government directly interfered in our elections right?

    This is tame by comparison. I love how you're all falling into the trap of thinking the Donald is unique somehow; "Oh, look what he's done now."

    Every boorish, crass, stupid, damaging thing he's done since taking office has been done by someone else in the White House. Let's do the comparisons:

    * Can't stop talking about the "historic" significance of his election victory: See also; war of independence, US in WWII
    * Racist exclusionary policies: See, "US: A Modern history of"
    * Underplanned military operations: See also, Clinton, William J
    * Mistreated allies: See also: Eisenhower, Dwight D; Nixon, Richard M, Johnson, Lyndon B
    * Antagonised a foreign power for nationalist stupidity: see also Reagan, Ronald Something; Truman, Harry S; Clinton, William J

    He is you and all your compatriots, your history and your values, distilled into one being.

    You guys don't like what you see. Funny that.

    Well yes, of course. And so was Thomas Jefferson. The difference being ol TJ is long dead and we are living with Trump.

    But how is he going to interfere with the markets exactly? I just want clarification what was said.

    Ender, this is not the strongest argument.

    1st, if you distilled all the best policies and decisions by all of the US presidents into a single person, then that guy would be an exemplary leader.

    2nd, even the best presidents made bad or arguably bad decisions -- Lincoln habeas corpus, FDR Japanese internment camps.

    3rd, Trump has only been in there 13 days. He will do awful things never before seen in a US presidency. Possible milestones: most authoritarian president ever, most erratic president ever (though Nixon set a high bar), most corrupt president ever (good competition there too), most incompetent president ever, most childish president ever -- ding, ding, ding, we already have 1 winner: biggest inaugural crowd ever! Meryl Streep is over-rated! CIA, you're a bunch of Nazis. I mean, I love you, and the media made that up.

    Actually, I think Dubya is a greater exemplification of US culture and its people: an entitled dumb, incurious, arrogant non-self-reflective fratboy.

    Dubya was like The Great Gatsby's Tom Buchanan in the Oval Office, so it's not like Americans have not been critiquing its own flaws for like forever.

    Trump is a power-mad pathological liar with a narcissistic personality disorder. I could imagine him taking very different political positions on some issues as long as they helped win.

    I'm not saying he doesn't help your argument (he certainly does), but I think it's too simple to make him out to be the perfect epitome of America as you are.

    You'll forgive me if I ignore the above given how it conforms to the indoctrination bias model in your country?

    Trump will cease being President of the USA in 2029 when, hiding deep in a bunker underneath Trump Tower NYC and cackling madly, he hits "The Button" (which Trump insisted be big and gold) which triggers a series of automated and precise nuclear strikes across the globe, reducing the entire Earth to a charred out husk. Trump then starves to death as the last specimen of mankid and eventually tens of thousands of years later a sole yellow wig is found by super-evolved dolphins.

    They shrug (or whatever shrugging passes for with super-evolved dolphins) and continue on their way.

    Democrats win control of the House at midterm, begin impeachment proceeding against Trump, impeachment fails in the Senate. Trump finishes his first term, gets a primary challenger, who beats him in a historic upset of a sitting president. The end.

    http://www.npr.org/sections/politicaljunkie/2009/07/a_president_denied_renominatio.html

    John Kasich is trying to position himself for a primary challenge, which seems laughable on its face, yet Kasich's ability to come across as a normally competent politician now seems like a priceless asset.

    He won't resign. He will fight this all the way to impeachment.

    Really? You think President Pence wouldn't sign the same dang bill?
    Just for grins, I'm going with a resignation/impeachment date US Thanksgiving Day 2017, so we can all be thankful for something...

    Why else would the prize be health coverage for the winner?

    Just remember, impeachment doesn't necessarily mean removal from office. Presidents have been impeached before but never removed from office because of it.
