    For him to flee to Russia before his term is officially up and them refuse to turn him over. Then, while he is there, he releases a video to his base bragging about how stupid and gullible they were and about how he intentionally damaged their futures for his own personal gain and how he lied and played them for fools and their own party knew about it and they all went along with it and made fun of them and made his base look and feel like the fools they have really been this entire time and knowing that everything he did and everything they encouraged was done for the express purposes of hurting them and helping him.

    That is the only way I could ever tolerate him actually getting away with it completely because at least then his base are forced to admit what they have lied about this entire time.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    Hire your daughter as a "consultant", pay her exorbitant sums of money, write the money off as a business expense.

    AND BE SURE TO DO IT FOR THE YEARS WHERE BOTH YOU, THE PRESIDENT, AND YOUR DAUGHTER, AN UNAPPOINTED GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL, ARE IN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

    Who knew that Ivanka has so much free time in her official capacity that she can moonlight as a "consultant" for her fathers businesses?! And it gets better -



    So was Trump paying himself and his family tens of millions of dollars in nebulous "consulting fees" and writing it off as business expenses? That seems a lot like fraud to me.

    .
    damn i am going back and paying my daughter a few hundy thow.....why not....wana bet what will happen?
    i mean she fucking knows it all like all teenagers and has no problem "consulting" with me on what i should allow her to do and why i should "invest" in her endevors.
    Buh Byeeeeeeeeeeee !!

    Ooh... With me returning to work on Thursday, I got a good comparison for Trump paying 750$ in taxes... that’s less than 2 months of tax withholding if you get max unemployment. I payed more in taxes in 2 months of unemployment, than Trump in a year.

    To think, that was so much taxes, that Trump made giving corporations like him self a 15% tax cut... 750$ was too much...

    I can see Trump doing his version of “if I did it”:

    Like 2018, women voters leading a possible BLue Tide

    BREAKING: Joe Biden leads Pres. Trump 54-45% among likely voters in Pennsylvania, new @abc News/WaPo poll finds, thanks in large part to a 2-1 lead in the Philadelphia suburbs.

    He has 3 long standing judges at this point. The only thing keeping him in office is spite and the threat of criminal charges.

    The question that Master of 56-D chess should be asking is that who and where were these 25 - 37M voters back in 2016? and why do they all of a sudden decided to participate in 2020. The conventional wisdom has always been the bigger the turnout, the bigger the Democrats advantage. We'll have to see if it will hold true this time.

    Yep. They’re good at getting uneducated voters. Malcolm X saw through their bullshit.

    Short of mandatory voting, voter apathy is probably always going to be a thing. I takes something like a lunatic in office to wake people up to its importance.

    I have no idea how accurate this "25-37 million voters" thing will turn out to be, but if it's anywhere close to that, it's a testament to just how damaging this administration has been. 10 million more Democratic voters showed up to elect Obama than they did when Kerry was running, and Bush was only killing people in other countries...not gassing his own citizens and writing off 200k+ deaths from a disease he ignored for political purposes.

    It's the same as Trump's Israel 'peace deal'. He's normalised relationships between countries that literally have had no active conflict at all, and who all have one thing in common; they hate Iran. So the right wing politician who nominated him was just being a total fanny and sycophant.

    Two things:

    .@realDonaldTrump
    couldn’t pass a security clearance for most government jobs with those tax returns.
    So a good point is what happens after Trump leaves office. Trump will have knowledge of many government secrets and information. So could he possibly sell this to a country to get out of debt? This is very possible, since yunno..its Trump.

    Breaking News: President Trump's tax returns reveal how "Apprentice" fame gave him a $427 million lifeline and a myth that propelled him to the White House.
    So here is the kicker folks. Trump inherited $400 million from his dad, lost it. He then earned through the Apprentice another $400 million and lost it. So that is easily over $800 million this guy has lost. GREAT businessman folks.

    Of course we can talk about the irony of the Apprentice and person who made his second fortune through marketing and licensing. A celebrity. You know, those people who have no worth in Trumpland. Oh the irony.

    Because giving power to Neo Nazis and white nationalists such as Sebastian Gorka and Stephen Miller is the better alternative /s

    Let's also keep in mind that Malcolm X saw things a lot differently at the end of his life including his views of white liberals in helping people of color get their rights. If the US had more than two parties which had power you could make arguments for supporting something else but the republican party's entire platform is hatred of minorities.

    So the same right wing politician nominated him for the second nomination also? And Trump should brag about it. It was a good thing. First time any Arab nation has recognized Israel as a nation.

    Trump did not win a single peace prize... Trump complained MSM is not coveting him winning, not being nominated.

    To the bold... what is this?

    It's a photo opportunity, so please sit down. The countries that are actually at war are no closer to peace. And the countries involved in this 'peace' deal all have such horrendous human rights records, that it's a fucking joke that anyone would call anything they're involved in 'peace'.

    Also, the second nomination isn't for Donald Trump specifically. It's for the US, Kosovo and Serbian Governments. There's a difference.

    And the third nomination is from David Flint, who is another nationalist nutcase that sees everything as a referendum against liberalism.

    Thanks for giving me the opportunity to refute more lies coming out of your mouth. You're back on ignore. Ta.

    PS. Josef Stalin received a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. Trump is in good company.

    PPS. There are now 319 nominees. Being nominated doesn't mean you even make the shortlist.

    On the debates, I expect them to go pretty much like the ones between Hillary and Trump. Each candidate's fans think theirs did the best.

    Looking back at the 2012 debates, it was clear who won each. Romney the first one and Obama the last two. One of the many reasons Romney lost.

    Unless one goes unhinged or has a major mental lapse, I do not think the debates this time will make any difference.
