And yet more than 70 million Americans think that Trump is who best embodies American principles and ideals.

We deserve to be a failed state.

According to millions of Trumpers, we are not even a state. We're fifty states. Makes you wonder why they even bother voting for President...

Giving immunity to a islamist billionaire who had someone murdered in an embassy in Europe.

And people wonder how I know that Trump is an atheist.

"Chop them up like the Saudis do" was tongue-in-cheek. Guess Tr*** didn't get the memo

It doesn't matter where he goes. The right AG will request that the US gov't put enough pressure on any country foolish enough to give him safe harbor, that he will be returned.

Biden hasn't named an AG yet. He is waiting until control of the senate is determined. If dems have control of the senate, Biden will appoint someone like an Adam Schiff that will go HARD after Trump and his henchmen. If dems don't have control, Biden will select someone less controversial.

What does Trump's lack of ethics have to do with his religion or lack of?
Every atheist i know are ethical people who would never dream of doing such a thing. Trump reminds me more of those prosperity evangelists who value themselves over all else.

Trump personally identifies with the punk and thug elements in society. It doesn't surprise me anymore that he'd pardon punks, thugs, perjurers, and murderers.

I'd love to hear any of trump's cult members give us the propaganda talking points on this.

I doubt any of them will show up on this thread.

Wouldn't he already have diplomatic immunity?

Sure thing. The video might show him leaving the embassy in the same clothes even. A little taller, but that is definitely Donald J. Trump, not what's inside the luggage..

That's the power of a gofundme for MBS. AmIright?!

BTW - it's spelled "halve".;]

Trump Considers Immunity for Saudi Crown Prince MBS

Just like Jeffrey Epstein thought he had a lenient plea deal with prosecutors, any immunity not anchored in well established constitutional law can and should be reversed by an aggressive prosecutor.

Upon entering office Diamond Joe should consider prohibiting any member of the Saudi Royal Family access to the US. These people are a dangerous cabal...

"Has TRump pardoned Hitler, Putin and himself yet?"

Not yet. But if he tries to pardon himself for federal crimes, it will no doubt be challenged in the U.S. Supreme Court.

I want Trump to leave office thinking that he has pardoned himself. I have no doubt that a self pardon will be challeged and that the SCOTUS will rule that a self pardon is not constitutional. My fear is that somehow Trump will prevail upon Pence to pardon him if he resigns and lets Pence become POTUS.

"My fear is that somehow Trump will prevail upon Pence to pardon him if he resigns and lets Pence become POTUS."

Trump has always mistaken himself to be invincible so he may decide to slug it out in the Supreme Court. He's so hide-bound to his ego, resigning in failure would be an enormous leap of faith for a guy like Trump who trusts no one.

But I agree with you. It would be more fun to watch him lose the biggest case of his life in the U.S. Supreme Court. And even more fun watching what comes after.
