That's how the rest of the World thinks about Trumpf et al. but we have to look at the situation a bit differently here. Sadly, getting rid of King Donald will not make things better for us. Better to let him thrash around trying to play Pres. and totally fucking up in the process. This guy becomes more of a liability daily to the GOP then he's worth. let the GOP get rid of him if they feel they need to. I think he's a gift to the rest of us till at least fall 2018 when we get a real chance to change things in DC by taking control of the House or the Senate. Putting Pence or Ryan in the WH doesn't help us quite to th contrary it helps the deeply Reactionary and increasingly Authoritarian factions of the GOP to push through their awful regressive agenda. With Don the Con in that's IMHO harder to do.
For the most part I agree with you. There is one aspect of removing Trump now that is positive. That has to do with the election of 2020 because at that point whoever is the president if not Trump, is deeply linked to Trump. Put a billion dollars in ads behind that link and they're in trouble. It's how Carter won by calling it the Ford Nixon Whitehouse, gave Carter a boost to keep reminding everyone of Ford's origin.
