Ideally, oust him earlier, get a good enough POTUS in, get some normality. So let's say 18 months lifespan, max?

I can't think of any TV-series with a president as looney-toons as the current US president. Can you?

Yes, it's a fascist president in the White House.

Coup for him? He got voted in legally by the people. But I expect he will be couped out. When the citizens start protesting about him, not the ban, about him.

 

He wasn't voted in by the majority of the US people. Neither was he voted in as the sole ruler of the US.

 

When they start to throw structures away that is in place to make sure there are checks and balances, then it is by definition a coup.

Don't think Hollywood could have thought that such a thing could ever occur. Presidents have always been depicted as role models. Yet in NZ, a NZ school has decided to remove him as a role model for the children.

 

In some ways I am wondering if he is doing all this, just to show how flawed the system is? I recall seeing him on the Letterman show many years ago saying what he would do if he was President, and it was all Loony Tunes stuff. But this is great for the media, he is going to be top story for years, which wouldn't have occurred if Hillary had made it in.

He won the electorate vote, as we used to have. Here also we have has a leader where the opposition had the popular vote.
They may change that also in the future, but in the past, he won legally. Plus only 55% voted, so the citizens played a big role,

Congratulations, Herr Trump. January isn't even over yet and you've already "achieved" so much.

It's a horrific side show, and the longer it goes on and the uglier it gets, the more chance fundamental issues are going to get lost in the noise.

 

The debate actually shouldn't be "was he elected fair and square?" and "was he within his rights to fire the AG, build the wall blah blah" and "is he doing what he said he'd do" for which the answer to all is affirmative.  

 

The real issues are more about fundamental human rights, the intention of the constitution, and how what happened did result in a vocal minority with a rogue agenda electing a president who will not represent all of the people - in fact is going out of his way to divide a once great nation.

"Veep" was worried the moment he was elected... Don't know what they'll do now.

So where is this "GOP will keep him under control"?

 

 

Its been only 10 days. he hasn't done anything really bad yet, just shown his lack of class and dignity, and that him and his near cronies cannot manage the position and implementation of policy. You can bet that while he tweets about McCain and the other one as being weak, there is damage control going on. I can see more and more that at some point there will be an outward lack of confidence by the Republican party members, and the public, as to how bad he is making America look.

 

 

10 days and more damage than any President yet... There's damage control for sure, but after his latest biz, they must be going nuts!

Overturning Roe v Wade will be next. Nothing like a group of white old mean making decisions that belong to women.
