    Then we need a constitutional amendment addressing this. Guidelines/policies are bull crap.

    And, it's crazy it never did. The constitution is there to protect the people from an unjust government yet it does not apply to the head of government. That is a big failing.

    He’s in perfect physical condition, too, so no chance McDonalds consumption will force him out.

    60 days would be a fairly short time.

    One well-aimed rifle round to a helicopter engine and it's done. Let it land, pop a round in, it's defunct, without the Capital Police ever having to go on the White House grounds. The Secret Service would be effectively nullified: It's a numbers game. Plus, there are actual patriots who work there. The tunnel system is relatively overhyped, and the Capital Police know where they all are (Hell, as a friggin' security guard, I knew where some of them were).

    Anyway partner, I certainly don't see anything like this actually coming to pass, but it is fun conversation. The old "what if" bit. Maybe we should get with Cheese and write a movie!!! :D

    Someone needs to get Melania hooked on Game of Thrones so she could get some ideas.

    No amendment can address a person unconstitutionally holding onto power despite an impeachment.

    But it could allow the other branches of government the ability to enforce law v POTUS in real time and not allow “policy” to ignore general rule of law.

    To do that, you'd have to completely restructure the constitution. You'd have to eviscerate separation of powers.

    Why? Separation does not equal immunity.

    I think it would be trump’s actions that would be construed as a coup.

    I can’t help but fight to quell the sick side of my nature that wants to see this happen. But my fear is massive violence from his supporters across the nation.
