1. Three, likely four members of the Supreme Court are seriously leaning towards giving Trump immunity from prosecution for whatever crimes he commits while in office.

Maybe the guy in charge of representing the United States should ask the Trump attorney if Trump is immune to repercussion if he gives the official order to drone-strike the Supreme Court.

Well, we can safely assume that Trump will chicken out of the debate he's agreed to. On top of every other reason he's doomed to lose such an event: the Secret Service will be in the room to treat him like a suspected assassin from whom the President much be protected (which he has tried to do when he had a Covid infection), and not the other way around. Which means he's got to be remote, which means he's easy to turn off if he tries anything.

All of which assumes he's not already in a New York State prison, of course. One of the remote debaters being forced to participate in his prison greens, and absent any grooming aids not approved by the system, would be less than flattering to that debater (if NYS-DOCCS even lets it happen, which is unlikely).

Oh, and the smart money is that his defense attorneys will up the dosage on his sleeping pills if that's what it takes to force him to similarly chicken out of testifying under oath in his trial. If he does that, we can safely wager whatever we want he'd be in prison by June.

You know as well as I do that Trump could spend the entire debate making nothing but fart noises, and it would make absolutely no difference to his popularity.

It wouldn't hurt him with his base, but they can't elect anyone. It would hurt him with the otherwise clueless, who'd basically be reminded of all the things they've been repressing about why they hated his term of office.

Anyone who's "forgotten" what Trump was like never thought he was that bad to begin with. If they weren't bothered about the incompetence, corruption and bigotry the first time around, they're unlikely to care much more now.

To that segment of the voting public, Trump was just some arseclown whose antics were good for a laugh but didn't affect them personally, so what's the problem with voting for him again?
