Some Republicans may see the light. Far more will increase their efforts to destroy democratic processes in the USA through gerrymandering, voter suppression, and the like.

With Trump's pick for Chief of staff turning him down, at least in the eyes of some political operatives he has passed his peak.

2019 and Trump is still president, who'da thunk it.

Maybe Trump will pass Peak this year.

I don't know about anybody else, but I certainly reached Peak Trump some time ago.

Please, America, make it stop.
