IMO President Trump did a lot of good things in his term until he was torpedoed by COVID-19 and the tangled skein of threads involved in the November 3rd election. This electoral circus will be puzzled over for a long time. I take note that Ossoff won in Georgia by just enough to avoid a re-count.
Nevertheless, The president's actions since November 3 have grown more and more erratic and have now culminated in what can only be called an incitement of mob violence directed at the Congress.
People ask why the Capitol Police and other federal authorities were not better prepared to defend the Capitol complex against attack. Well, pilgrims, nobody expected the president of the US to whip up crowd anger and then to send the mob to the Capitol.
I wrote some days ago that Trump's rage and pain were serious factors to consider in a moment of political crisis. These things and his "one man show" mentality" overwhelmed him yesterday and in acting out his personal agony he did serious damage to the country. He is done. Stick a fork in him, maybe over-done.
The Democrat leadership will not want to pursue him although his actions yesterday might make him criminally liable. The squaddies will howl for his blood, but Schumer, Pelosi, etc. are not going to want to do anything that rash.
IMO he should leave the scene. A retreat to Mar a Lago is what should happen. He can let the clock run out there. He can resign and let Pence deal with the mess, but he should go.
The populist revolt that he led is not dead. It is not anything like dead. The 75 million citizens who voted for him are still here. They still want the same things, but he should depart and let a new leadership of the Deplorable Smellies emerge. pl
