If Trump is convicted by the Senate, not even Trump survived the Trump White House.

ETA: The WH Head Usher, whom Melania brought in from the Trump Tower in NYC, was just fired.

The title of this thread makes me muse about how many very active threads are suddenly going to die this week or so. But that's OK. We'll still have the Covid-19 threads to keep us busy.

No reason not to track the Biden White House, IMO. Hopefully much less drama, though.

Such an event would be deliciously ironic.

So I sure hope that such an event does actually happen, because if it does happen, then there would be at least one positive thing that the Trump Administration has managed to do.

He was fired, apparently, for doing the right thing: facilitating the changeover of WH occupancy to the Bidens. That's a sin in Donny's book.
