A Guessing Game

Many of us hope (and maybe even do a bit of “praying” 😈) that the U.S. will be  led by someone sane, coherent, and mentally capable after the November election.

While not everyone is all that excited about the presumptive Democratic candidate, most are aware this nation simply will not survive another four years under the current regime.

Now, having said this, I’d like to put forth a bit of a guessing game.

Let’s say something happens to Trump before the November elections and he is unable to continue as president either now OR in the future. Based on the constitution, we know that Vice-President Pence will automatically step into the role of POTUS.

It’s more than apparent the Republican party has been counting on Trump continuing to lead the country for at least (!!) another four years. But now that dream has been thwarted. Trump is out. So what’s next?

It’s pretty much a ‘given’ that Pence would immediately throw his hat into the ring in hopes of switching his fill-in role into something more permanent. However, it’s also a given that he wouldn’t be the only one.

So who else do you think would jump into the fray? And among those individuals, who do you think might have the best chance of becoming the Republican nominee?

Now remember, at this writing, there are only five months until the November elections, which means opportunities to campaign would be limited. And based on the logistics involved, it would seem doubtful any debate(s) would be held. There could possibly be some campaign rallies, but again, time is a factor.

So, considering the chances for the potential Republican candidate to promote him/herself are limited, what is your best guess of who might end up competing against Pence?

And to take it a step further, in the final election, how well do you think this individual would fare against the Democratic contender?

P.S. Please! Don’t get too serious about all this! Just play along because, after all, it’s just a guessing game. 😋

The Wall and The Terrorists

You’ve heard of the “10 Terrorists” that have entered the U.S. via the Mexican border, right? (How could you not? tRumpsky has told us about them numerous times!)

Well, come to find out, this declaration is not entirely accurate. (Surprise-Surprise!)

As with everything that enters the brain of tRumpsky and then exits through his mouth, there’s more –much more– to the story.

Trump’s 10 ‘Terrorists’: The evolution of a statistic

Although most of us will agree our current POTUS is handicapped when it comes to telling the truth, it’s still somewhat amazing to discover just how much he twists and bends the facts.

Sidenote: One of the things this reporter points out is while tRrumpsky is not planning to put up a wall at the Canadian border, it is actually the … “home to “Canada-based violent extremists inspired by terrorist groups such as ISIS and al-Qaida and their affiliates and adherents.” 

(Need I point out the reasons why Mexico is the primary focus?)

P.S. Something I found especially intriguing in this article is the role VP Pence has played in tRumpsky’s “wall” comments.
