Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

At a rally in Friday night in Macon, Georgia, President Trump mocked Joe Biden, saying, "The mask is always so large!" -- and suggested that he would leave the U.S. out of embarrassment if he lost to the former vice president.

More from the article...

...What he's saying: "I shouldn't joke because you know what? Running against the worst candidate in the history of presidential politics puts pressure on me," Trump said. "Could you imagine if I lose? My whole life, what am I gonna do? I'm gonna say: 'I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics.' I'm not gonna feel so good. Maybe I'll have to leave the country " I don't know."...

Wait, what?

Pres Trump calls Mr Biden the "worst candidate in the history of presidential politics"?

So what does that say about Pres Trump should he lose to Mr Biden?

Or even if Pres Trump wins by a small margin?

Even if Pres Trump does leave the Country should he lose, what about others in his family who have been involved in Trump Inc.?

Have his children been complicit in possible wrongdoing in the family corporation?

Tell you where he won't go... any of the backwoods red states that support him; he wouldn't be caught dead with those people.

Trump can leave we will still put him on trial and we will still convict and drag him out of whatever part of Russia he's hiding in.

Apparently... it takes more nuggets to lose than it does to win.

Hillary Clinton already ran and lost against the worst candidate in history... and even though she garnered more votes she lost... then she stayed in the country... decided to retire and hang with her grand-kiddies... she's doing great...
She is still very popular in her party and unlike Trumplethinskin will be invited to the next presidential convention her party holds.

The clowns have no one of that stature to invite... because the last two prezzies left office in disgrace.

Trump probably thinks that he can avoid justice by fleeing to a country that doesn't have an extradition treaty with the US. And guess which country doesn't have an extradition treaty with the US? You guessed it: Russia.

But guess what, to bring his butt back to face justice, the US and possibly it's allies, would apply such enormous pressure on whatever country he flees to that they would return his butt in a heartbeat. He won't be able to avoid prosecution just by fleeing. If he loses the election, his goose is cooked.

Furthermore while awaiting extradition, Trump can be tried in absentia and his assets seized and sold.

What about his family? Are they going to flee as well? They won't be compelled to flee because Trump will undoubtedly pardon them and others involved in his criminal enterprise for any and all federal crimes. However, they may want to flee because at that point, the Trump name is forever tarnished.

If Biden wins, his pick for AG will speak volumes as to what he wants to see happen to Trump.

Here is a link to those countries that don't have an extradition treaty with the US.

Take his stupid name off all buildings. Turn Mar-A-Lago into a zoo for disabled animals. Put his adult children in cages.

"Take his stupid name off all buildings."

That will probably happen automatically. The name is just a lease anyway, not ownership. Anybody with any business sense would see the Trump name as a liability anyway.

In fact, because of cancellations of big name conventions and the like, some hotels are already removing his name, for fear of guilt by association.

Even now, in the waning months and weeks (and now days) of the election cycle, Trump's name is so toxic that the campaign's money sources have bottomed out. i.e. Assets vs liabilities, means the campaign is broke.

Afghanistan - the Taliban love him.
Bahrain - this is a definite possibility.
Belarus - they already have a dictator.
Bosnia and Herzegovina - nice if they'd have him. It's not Slovenia which would make Melania happy.
Kazakhstan - haven't they suffered enough from Borat?
Kosovo - naw. They're getting it together and don't need the aggravation.
Kuwait - some bridges have been burned. Not sure he'd be welcome.
Macedonia - not Croatia, but close enough
Montenegro - a contender.
Oman - no comment.
Qatar - no comment.
Russia - really, there's nothing to say. Maybe he'd finally get his "tower," too.
Saudi Arabia- built in buddy with MBS!
Ukraine - this could go bad quickly. Avoid.
United Arab Emirates - bring Jared! Starry eyes.
Uzbekistan - defintely out after the whole Herman Cain fiasco.
Vatican - forgiveness doesn't mean forget, plus all that gold and genuine art? The competition would be fierce.
Yemen - my choice for him.

Trump claims that he's the most famous person on earth.

With that in mind, I'd recommend a Brazilian jungle.

Of course, for creature comfort, the other Nazi escapees did well in Argentina, too.

Argentina and Brazil are out - due to extradition treaties with the U.S., Twin.

Orange turd and the whole family will flee to a country that doesn't have extradition back to the US.

He can leave after his jail term for his foreign-backed sham businesses.

"He can leave after his jail term for his foreign-backed sham businesses."

No, no, no. That misses the point. The object is for him to leave BEFORE his jail term so don't have to feed him cheeseburgers and pay for all the luxuries and medical treatment he'll demand at Club Fed. It's better for the world if he's rendered completely incommunicado forever.

"No. Flee the US."

Question: After the finality of the electoral votes are tallied and Biden is sworn in on January 20, will the New York District Attornies have to wait for a Supreme Court decision before they pounce?

Let me rephrase that question:

After the finality of the electoral votes are tallied and Biden is the clear winner will the New York District Attornies have to wait for a Supreme Court decision before they pounce?

You know better than that. Pardons don't apply to State crimes.

If Trump wants pardoned for federal crimes, he'd have to resign before January 20th and trust Pence to do the job.

But that won't get him off the hook in the State of New York or with the IRS either for that matter.

BTW, if Trump didn't set up Irrevocable Trust documents to protect his assets, he won't be able to buy a bus ticket out of town.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if Trump were extradited from Russia? Even if the extradition request were denied by his lover Putin, just the mere asking for it would be pure gold both for historians and comedians. And it actually could happen. lol

more likely: flee the US to avoid prosecution and multiple lawsuits

TELL the South to secede. All the dumb mother------s can move there and fend for themselves amid all that 'freedumb.'

So I just got home and hour ago from helping a friend move from Nashville to Mississippi. Everywhere I went hardly anyone was wearing a mask unless they worked at a hotel or store, exercising their 'freedumb' in ruby red Trump country.

On the way home a few hours ago, I got into a chat with a father and son standing in line at Subway off the freeway in Cullman, AL. They were wearing masks, and I thanked them for that because hardly anyone else was. When I mentioned how many others in the gas station/McDonalds/Subway store weren't wearing masks, he said, "sin is a bigger problem." I replied, "isn't the 6th Commandment "Thou shalt not kill?" Any one of these people can catch COVID and kill their spouse, children, parents, or grandparents because they ignored experts ... AND the sign on the door that masks are required." That shut off his holier-than-thou Bible blather.

Ya, I WANT the South to secede!

For some reason I can't explain, I don't think Trump is going to run.

I think one of the first things a D.A. will do, pending their investigation of course, is put Donald's assets, both liquid and real, into a court ordered receivership ~~ (with the IRS standing first in line to collect their due.)

I think Trump will stay and fight this every jump of the way (including throwing his kids and Kushner under the bus if necessary).

With all his liquid assets going to a Receiver, it will be interesting to see how Trump intends to pay all the legal fees involved in a lengthy defense.

I'm sure he'll find somebody but they'll probably have to stand in line with the IRS to get paid along with everybody else Trump has screwed ~ maybe even some places where he held campaign rallies.

So, other than the IRS it's all chump change compared to Melania's high maintenance.

Oh, dear ~~ What's a girl gonna do?
