I watched the country burn in a summer of Mostly Peaceful Protests (hitting me close to home as my city - my neighborhood immigrant community’s businesses, my workplace - was ransacked), and it wasn’t Trump who ran cover for/rationalized/downplayed/justified it all.

My position isn’t that Trump is good. I’ll be very happy if he does not run in 2024. I just don’t believe our problems begin and end with him


Well, he'd have put a stop to all of that had he seized control. You get that there's a difference right? A bunch of dumbass politicians dumbassing all over the place is not the same thing as what Trump definitely tried to accomplish.

As for our problems, I agree that they don't begin and end with Trump. But that said, had he succeeded we would have completely new problems right now - for example: an unelected President who would stay in power until he dies, and then pass power to his kids. There's a term for that -> Dictator.

I get there’s a difference I just don’t believe the threat of success was real. A gaggle of people went to the capital to protest results, a portion of disorganized goons stormed the capital building, getting 4 of them killed (1 shot, 2 heart attacks, 1 overdose) and 1 capital officer having his later suicide attributed to a head injury he suffered in the chaos. I don’t believe they had any chance of success, and think the military would have made short work of them if it had gotten that far.

Screw those idiots. Deserved all the charges participants received as a result. Embarrassing stain on GOP being in any way connected to them. Tossed any Law and Order high ground in the trash can. But I think it’s hyperbolic to compare it to 9/11 or treat it as if it American democracy almost fell that day. They were too busy taking selfies, stealing podiums, and walking within the velvet ropes to make Trump dictator for lyfe.

You’re the only person talking about January 6. Did you read what I said?

January 6th wasn’t the attempted coup, those people were mostly idiots.

Destroying America’s belief in its own voting system was the attempt. Trying to “find” votes was the attempt. Trying to get Pence to overturn the election (and corrupting multiple members of Congress) was the attempt. Attacking the credibility and limiting the access of all media that disagreed with him was the attempt. Trying to convince the military to do all kinds of vile things was the attempt. Etc…

Some dude in a beanie had no effect, and never would have. It’s Trump’s actions that were actually scary. The worst thing those people could have done is maybe kill a few members of Congress. Trump was trying to kill the country, and he was using Twitter (amongst other things) to garner support by spreading calculated misinformation, divisive commentary, inflammatory remarks, etc. to help achieve that goal.

And it almost worked… still might.

Trump has successfully demonstrated that a President is effectively above the law, kind-of even after leaving office; and he has basically shattered the myth of functioning checks and balances between branches of the federal government.

Dude was probably the worst President we’ve ever had. And yes, I’m aware of how high (low?) that bar has been set by other scoundrels.

————————

For a rating based on time invested vs magnitude of effect; Trump’s Twitter account has to have been one of the highest stress-causing things on the planet.

I hope it never comes back just bc it’s literally a Lovecraftian Miasma that would curse the global population.

————————

Elon Musk comes across the same as Donald Trump; except less sexual felonies and more business successes. He’s got the same narcissistic angle going.

It’s very obvious Elon Musk considers “free speech” to be speech he likes or doesn’t mind. The past week has been plastered with tales of him acting like a Trump-level man-child bc he didn’t like something a critic, reviewer, customer, etc. said.

Thus…. yeah. Dude is either stupid or a liar.

——————————————————————————————-

Edit: If Trump wants to run in 2024, and he is actually allowed to get back on, Trump will get back on Twitter.

That’s just how the Presidential campaign will work. There are only three things that will stop this:

1. Trump actually goes to jail.
2. Trump dies beforehand.
3. Elon Musk doesn’t let Trump back on Twitter.

Note- Trump deciding not to run is not mentioned/considered.

I played a random youtuber a bit ago and shared my deck with him. He decided to try it, so I figured I should share the link and maybe get him some likes.

Back to lurking.

Does the foreign exclusion clause affect the Vice President? I thought it was only the President that had to be a natural citizen

Same requirements as president... 35, citizen, natural born, etc. (although, I'd readily admit that 1) I had to look it up, and 2) it wasn't immediately found).

In the event of a succession, supposing for example that the speaker of the House (who doesn't have that requirement) isn't natural born or wasn't old enough or something, they'd just be skipped (not that this would likely ever happen).

It's happened a few times, which was probably reasonably predictable to the writers and why they made the rule.
