Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, January 15, 2021

Trump has been consumed by the unraveling of his presidency during his last days in office, according to people around him, which included a casual discussion among advisers recently about a possible resignation. Trump shut the idea down almost immediately. During [another] passing mention of resigning this week, Trump told people he couldn't count on Vice President Mike Pence to pardon him like Gerald Ford did Nixon, anyway.

It's almost like it was meant to be for some reason, eh?

Nixon was never impeached, so Lewzer has that in spades.

Words his insurrectionist army of wackadoodles will take to heart and see if they can deliver on.

This is a huge flashing danger signal to me.

"As one of their final acts, Trump's team is working to organize a crowd to see him off on the morning of Biden's inauguration"

What a pathetic, fat, loser of a man.

"the Bidens, who will spend the night before the inauguration at Blair House, across Pennsylvania Avenue from the executive mansion. Its use was offered to them by the State Department rather than the Trumps, who refuse to make contact with the incoming president and first lady"

What a class act Donald and Melania are, right until the last.

Nixon never sent a mob to hang Gerald Ford. What? Mike is upset about that? I never liked Mike Pence but he has more patriotism than Donald Trump.

Trump explodes. Can you imagine the amount of acid-dissoving fluid that would cover everything?

From the cited article...

...For now, Trump is undecided on whether he will pen a letter to Biden to leave in the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office. Some of his advisers have encouraged him to think about continuing the tradition. Early in his presidency, Trump liked to show off to visitors the letter he received from President Barack Obama, which included the now-prescient line: "Regardless of the push and pull of daily politics, it's up to us to leave those instruments of our democracy at least as strong as we found them."...

Good video showing the various letters from outgoing to incoming Presidents...

So that's what that first meeting with Pence after the insurrection was about. Trump wanted a signed pardon in his pocket before he resigned and Pence said no.

I'd call that a moment when Karma, in all her glory, came back and bit Trump in the butt.

Actually, I like it that Pence didn't I would rather he resigned. The 25th could give him an insanity loophole and buy him exile somewhere.

Trump's ranting, rambling note to Diamond Joe will be in a third grader's script, written with a Sharpie, and will include many misspelled words. Melania's note to Dr. Jill will be no more than "Help me, please"...

Darn-I saw "trump Explodes" and I thought "finally', then continued to read. Sigh.

Y'all need to stop comparing tRump to Nixon and Hitler.

He's a pathetic POS compared to either one.

Nixon - creation of the EPA. There's more, and doesn't excuse anything else. But, EPA. Come on, that's pretty cool.

Hitler - Decorated WWI soldier, some other things. But that pesky genocide thing...

Hitler read alot, was a master of details (at least until 1944), actually wrote his books, ---------- so much

A big send off for The Seditionist/Loser? How about a swift kick in the pants.

I'd be happy with a simple throw off the White House veranda.

Like an old rug that needs to go in the dumpster.
