Hmmm....

Like Trump would ever even consider being a lowly representative after being POTUS. His ego couldn't bear it.

No kidding. The man couldn't even stand someone else getting a slightly larger steak at a restaurant.

Can you imagine how relieved the remaining WH staff is working for the Bidens after the Trumps?

He'd likely end up impeaching the two for some asinine conspiracy theory like "Hiding Joe's sleep schedule and dementia", and put Jared Kushner in charge who would give it to some 4th grade kid to prosecute - and then Cheeto Benito would rage and sputter because the news was paying attention to the trial instead of to him.

Assuming that this was actually a viable plan, I've been trying to figure out what the least number of falsehoods one would have to believe to think this would, in any way, be good for the country.

These people have no clue that Trump conned them into thinking he actually did stuff as POTUS besides golf and bully people. Trump, in Pelosi's job, couldn't even do the basics like leading the House in session. Trump is such an imaginary character to them.

I recently saw Hannity's soft soap interview with Trump. Watching Hannity joyfully crawl up Trump's backside while gyrating, in ecstasy, has he fully submits to the most holy and divine Trump was compulsively hilarious. A total jelly fish with the integrity of a suck up to power. Carlson has of course joined Hannity in this worship of the new Messiah and just has the Republicans are completing their transformation into a Trump cult, so is Fox news completing it's transmission into something like Pravda in relation to Stalin in the 1930s.

Yep Trump has indeed changed things, turning the Republican party, to a large extent, into a Fascistic cult of personality. Quite an accomplishment!!

Ketchup is true 'Merican, that Dijon stuff is from the pansy, sniveling, French cowards. Clearly, Trump is a red Blooded 'Merican eating good 'Merican food, while Obama was as bad as a Frog.

Hmmm....

He is residing in a solidly pro American district with a Democrat as the incumbent for some time. Trump isn't likely to sway it to vote against the nation. Trump's approval rating in the 30s isn't viable to change a swing district let alone a solidly pro American district. He'd have better luck moving south into the 22nd district. That district solidly betrayed the nation in 2020.

They are likely pretending that taking Covid-19 protocols seriously such as mask wearing is 'muzzling'.

Does she think that the masks are like the ball gags used in BDSM? Is that what she thinks masks are?

You mean as opposed to Trump? His White House leaked more than a pasta strainer. The consequence of which is that no one, not the American public, not our allies, not our adversaries knew what our policies were.

Yes, when you speak as a member of the White House staff you are speaking on behalf of the administration and should be pushing the party line.
