Plus, there is no reason to believe Trump would not attempt to pull a Grover Cleveland and run for a second, non-consecutive presidential term. (I have to admit to getting a bit of masochistic joy out of bringing this up to people who had not yet considered it. You are welcome for the night sweats.) Even if he doesn’t pull the trigger on such a run, he will certainly relish the prospect of a Trump redux hanging over our politics for a few years. If in the end he takes a pass, who’s to say that Don Jr. won’t attempt to follow in Daddy’s footsteps.

What I could see is a variation of the Bush legacy where Donald Trump "steps aside" to have DT, Jr. run to take advantage of the Deplorables, the incels, the alt-right, etc. I doubt they would be willing to follow Ivanka. Donald Trump senior is too old trying to be the aggressive bully in four or eight years. He's more likely dead by then.

This is such bullshit.
Trump is going to be tilted into a pit of vipers after leaving the White House. He may not see prison, but he will be financially and legally beleaguered as never before. His allies at the crucial level of support - people like the Adelsons - will abandon him. The Trump Trash will continue to worship him, but they have no power where it counts, not even in sheer stupid numbers.
Don Jr. is a whiny, sobbing little red-eyed bitch. He will never command attention the way his shitheaded father has. Eric is an even bigger loser than Don Jr. Ivanka can occasionally give a credible public performance, but her husband has turned into a rejected waxwork figure of Marlene Dietrich and there is simply no way she's breaking his creep factor AND the religious/gender glass ceiling at once.
The Trumps are over once their stint at the White House is over. By 2024 all their bills come due and the only thing any of them will be running for is the hills.

The GOP will go where the money is. The Kochs, the Mercers, the Rothschilds, etc. The Right Wing media will provide the GOP with the mouth breathing foot soldiers using common hot button buzz word rhetoric to keep them riled up. Right Wing think tanks will figure out what strategy to use to give the 1% what they want with the help of the right wing media propaganda, the mouth breathing Deplorables and a new polarizing right wing figure who will no doubt try to outdo (or trump) Trump.
In short: Business as usual.

Night sweats? Why would I be sweating over the prospect of Trump tearing the Republican Party apart by running for the 2024 nomination? It sounds like a dream come true. He’d only be a threat to win the general election if the Dems nominated Hillary Clinton.
I’m more sad that he WON’T be walking through that door again. The Republicans will put up someone much sharper and tougher next time. We should appreciate this opportunity to run against a circus clown because it’s not happening in 2024. They’ll sic a Josh Hawley type on us, some guy who will have those suburban white women ready to come back into the muscular arms of the GOP.

The article, which is good, reiterates several ideas that have already been put into print the last few years: the Republican Party is now a party of white working class resentment, with higher education segregating non-degree holding white voters into a nativist, populist party. The GOP future is in states like Ohio, Minnesota and Michigan while Democrats will gain political power in places like Georgia, Texas and South Carolina.
|by Noooooooo!||reply 21||10/16/2020|
I wouldn't be surprised if in his remaining months, if the election goes the Democrats' way, Trump suddenly has a big diplomatic event with Putin in Moscow that involves his close adviser Jared Kushner and other members of the family, which somehow gets prolonged past Jan. 20, until everybody forgets about them except their creditors and the prosecutorial staff of the State of New York.

If political scientist Stephen Skowronek is correct, the Trump figure running in 2024 will loose BADLY, which will then prompt the party to actually start realizing they can't win with this anymore. It's called regime theory, and there's no question the Reagan Regime is dead. The question is what will replace it? Biden has an historic opportunity if he wins to establish a new regime for the next 40 years.

Things I'm looking forward to: (1) Trump loses the election. (2) Trump skips inauguration of Biden because he can't handle the humiliation. (3) Trump legal trouble ramps up in February 2021 and there is nothing that can stop it. (4) Trump frauds exposed. (5) Trump is convicted and sent to jail. (6) Trump organization goes bankrupt and must sell off assets. (7) All Trump buildings and properties have the ugly letters "TRUMP" removed from their exteriors. (8) Melania files for divorce. (9) Other members of Trump family change their last names out of shame. (10) Trump dies in prison.
Maybe all of these things could happen in the year 2021! That would make up for a shitty 2020!

I agree Republicans don't want him running again, because they can't control him.
The sad thing is, Trump has unleashed an angry darkness in the hearts of many white people. We suspected that it was there, black people definitely said it was there, but they did such a good job of cloaking it that people thought we had turned a page. I'm not sure if that is ever going away. Too much shit has gone down these last 4 years. How can people look at the their Trumspter neighbors, their Trumpster family members and coworkers the same way again. We're very good at forgetting in this country, but I just don't know how you put that genie back in its bottle.

The Republicans are blind with greed for money and power. Trump is a logical conclusion for them. They don't even care that their hypocrisy is all out there in the open. They have no-where to go but go down with Trump. I rather predict a re-branding after Trump, because they sure will not get anyone new on their side and they'll be stuck with the angry but no-good Deplorables who can be outvoted by a landslide if they stick with Trump like front men who will push "never someone like Trump again!" Liberals to the voting booths.
