It’s not going to be eight years. There’s a good chance that it won’t even be four. Think the establishment Republicans have Trump’s back? Trump isn’t a real Republican, and has no loyalty whatsoever for the GOP. The party was merely a means to an end for him. The Republicans in Congress would much rather work with Pence, as he’s a loyal party member. So as soon as Trump screws up bigly (and he will), he’s toast.
As far as the “rioters” you people are so fond of pointing out? A very small percentage of the thousands of peaceful demonstrators who object to Trump’s appointment of unapologetic racists to high level positions, Trump’s threat to undo everything currently in place to mitigate the effects of climate change, and Trump’s obvious conflict of interest where his businesses are concerned. These demonstrators aren’t going away. Perhaps the reason you didn’t demonstrate or object when Obama was elected (and yes, he was elected twice) is because there was virtually no threat of the world going to hell in a handbasket with his administration.
I trust that when Trump gets into trouble and is either impeached or forced to resign, you will be back here to admit you were wrong.
