    I love how people think assassination is the "sane" action.

    I'm saying I think it may happen......not that it's sane!...........And having just read that 35 pages of "fake news" I think it's even more likely than before!:eeek

    I'm skeptical of the Trump memo but what I do enjoy is how Trump now suddenly believes in fake news. Last week it was all nonsense, but now it's a term he's been made aware of he's now employing with gusto.

    I don't think assassination is a realistic outcome, I do however think impeachment is because this man is a compulsive liar. He's utterly incapable of being truthful for any significant length of time and it seems inevitable to me that clear evidence of criminality and deceit will be exposed and give his enemies an out. He's a perjury case waiting to happen. I would be surprised if he saw out 12 months as President because I just see so many avenues that his opponents and opportunists could take to bring him down.

    As a sidenote I think the constant bringing up of assassination is a bit shameful, because frankly I'm confident many of the people who do bring it up would celebrate if it happened. I question the credibility of people who revel in murder.

    In a way I'm quite happy with people calling for Trump's assassination because they're absolutely clueless what that means for them if Pence becomes President, not to mention giving their enemies a powerful martyr. We'll get someone even more extreme but also competent than Trump and his supporters will be completely up for it. Also that I'm getting more uneasy with him, removing him could turn out to be for the best.

    The bringing up......as you put it, of assassination is merely discussion of a possible outcome, in a country with previous form on it!
    There are more than a few unsavoury rumours flying around where Trump is concerned and people "disappearing" as well......

    I genuinely misread the title and thought it said The Trump Assassination. I think he'll do well to go full term without someone trying to off him!

    My issue with trump, more than anything, is that he is an idiot. He makes George W look like Stephen Hawking in comparison

    I'm still astonished that (almost) half the voters can't see him for what he is.

    To be fair to him he does a cracking Tommy Cooper impression with his hands.

    Assassination would be the worst outcome possible and would make Trump more of a beast. Be careful what you wish for.

    If you saw his presser yesterday, we're seeing that he is a master of deflecting questions. He probably answered a total of 0 of any of the questions asked to him not related to him as a businessman.
