In Texas vernacular, y'all are missing the sarcasm.

Edit: Or humor. Y'all are missing the humor. Either way, I suspect that what talltexan wrote is not literal.

Thanks, Obama.

Obama?  What?  No. Blame Canada!

Leave America's hat out of this!

Unless Canada becomes a cowboy 10 gallon hat, screw em :)

What if Trump is actually Canadian?

I understood not wanting to spread COVID across the globe via an Olympic games, but I'm tired of waiting for Simone Biles to take her rightful place at the top of the medal podium in gymnastics. Maybe we could just have the gymnists compete?

At the risk of veering wildly off-topic, this is yet another example of why the Olympics needs to abandon the "single-city, rotational" approach to the games.

The games are now way too big, way too costly, and the events too varied to be successfully carried out by a single host-city (or even nation) even during non-pandemic times.
That would never happen. If you spread out the games, the whole bribery system would break down. The IOC is never going to do that!

What if Trump is actually Canadian?

Since then he could not have bcome president, that means everything he did as president would automatically be reversed? Would save a lot of time!

That, in a nut shell, explains why many chose to pursue the ‘birther’ conspiracy pushed by Trump.  And racism.

Ted Cruz was born in Canada, but he seems to be getting along just fine in American politics. Re-elected to US Senate and runner-up in 2016 Republican primary.

I'll talk to someone here and add him to the list.


Canada officially apologizes for:
- Celine Dion
- Nickelback
- Ted Cruz
Sorry world, our bad.

See, it's fine if you're born outside of the US to a born-American mother, even if your father is not American and you're born in a country where neither of your parents are current citizens, as long as you're white and they give you a "non-foreign" nickname (e.g., Ted). No one will ever question your eligibility for the presidency.

(But if you're black and born on US soil to a born-American mother, who then gives you a non-foreign nickname like Barry, and you're partly raised by your WWII vet grandfather, then apparently your citizenship status is suspect because of course your absent non-white, non-citizen father overrides all of your US relatives and their influences.)

In spring 2008, as John McCain pulled off primary victories to save his candidacy, then Senators Clinton and Obama--who were themselves competing for the Presidency--co-sponsored a bill in the Senate declaring McCain a "Natural Born Citizen" despite his having been born outside of the US. At the time, McCain's father (a Navy Admiral) was serving our country in the Panama Canal Zone. Obama only co-sponsored this bill because the details of his own birth were so murky that he hoped to direct suspicion away from himself.

So my conspiracy-minded in-laws tell me today is “Inauguration Day” for Trump.

Meanwhile, the house has decided not to be in session today for fear of another attack.  The Senate will be, though...

Early in 2017, I heard someone compare Trump's ability to move and shape public opinion on twitter to FDR's fireside chats on the nascent medium of radio. It occurred to me then that we might be seeing the start of a 9+ year Presidency. I wondered how I would go about pulling together the resources to write a book arguing that Trump would run for and win a third term.

A combination of my own laziness and horror at his policies meant I never really explored this. It's easy for me to view the activity on this thread and believe I could have pulled together $30,000 or more via a GoFundMe for such a book.

Are you still envisioning a 9+ year presidency?

Donald Trump--whether he plans to run in 2024 or not--will go around acting like he is for the next two years. He is drawn to attention like a moth to a flame, and acting like you're running for President is the single best way to get attention. So we cannot look to his own choices/actions/statements and discern anything meaningful.

The landscape can shift a lot in two years. We'll see whether the Republican party is able to win a House majority in 2022 by following the Trumpism playbook.

I acknowledge that Trump winning three terms looks out of reach, but if he pulls a Grover Cleveland and runs/wins in 2024, he will go around claiming he won three times.

Speaking of religions...

Trump is old. He's gonna die sooner rather than later. Will Qanon believe that he's going to return through some age-defying tech (or that he never died in the first place)?

It seems far-fetched but this is the same group that believes in a worldwide cabal of Satan worshiping cannibals.

Three terms means he would run and win 2024 and then run again in 2028 and win?   But a prez can only serve 2 terms, correct?

Only if you are following the law. But when has Trump let that stop him from doing something he wants to do?

Sounds a bit like Scientology. Maybe Qanon will become the next predatory religious cult. They're nearly there.

Genius. Give it a name like “Super Eagle Patriot OS” and name all of the upgrades after Confederate Army generals and/or Trump family members. The desktop icon can be the snake from the Gadsden flag. You’ll make a fortune.

People who have been fine with Trump's approach to so many other laws and norms seemed convinced that he would never violate the Washingtonian custom of retiring from public life after a second term. You may wish to reread the entire thread here.

Those people who have Canada apologizing for Celine Dion: no need to apologize. Great voice, a couple of truly fantastic songs. Do not put her in with Biebs or Ted Cruz.

Of course, I grew up in Texas, where the favorite Canadian is Shania Twain.

Maybe they can source that from North Korean, Russia, Myanmar, or China - and then just rebrand it.

Maybe we should just be a little more pointed about calling out liars when they appear.

Nobody who supports democracy can be a Trump supporter.  He has proven himself to be pretty radically anti-democratic by his actions and the actions of his supporters.

The 'law and order' crowd isn't really a 'law and order' crowd . . . or they would be more upset about the laws that Trump and his family have broken.

I'm no expert, so someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is that a person can only serve two consecutive terms as President.  I don't believe there is anything stopping someone from serving more terms in total.

Trump supporters are proudly and openly anti-democracy. They say we live in a republic not a democracy so it doesn’t really matter what the majority of Americans want. They are very, very open about this opinion and talk about it a lot. It’s central to their politics.

22nd Amendment:  No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of President more than once.

There’s more, but that’s the important part.

I think the plan is:

The Repubs will win the Senate
The Repubs will win the House
Trump will win a House seat and become the Speaker
The House and Senate will impeach and convict the President AND the VP

This will make Trump the President for the remainder of Biden's term. He can then run again in 2024 for a total of 9+ years.

[Three terms means he would run and win 2024 and then run again in 2028 and win?   But a prez can only serve 2 terms, correct?
I'm no expert, so someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is that a person can only serve two consecutive terms as President.  I don't believe there is anything stopping someone from serving more terms in total.

22nd Amendment:  No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of President more than once.

There’s more, but that’s the important part.

I think the plan is:

The Repubs will win the Senate
The Repubs will win the House
Trump will win a House seat and become the Speaker
The House and Senate will impeach and convict the President AND the VP

This will make Trump the President for the remainder of Biden's term. He can then run again in 2024 for a total of 9+ years.

Unless the GOP can magically flip 17 Senate Seats ( and they don't even have 17 even open to flip in 2022) they won't be removing Biden from the Presidency even in that doomsday scenario.

Trump: It says you can only be ELECTED twice, it doesn't say anything about seizing power via an insurrection.

Beyond the basic 2 terms, the only theorized way of being President longer than the 10 year limit (An Acting president can still run for 2 terms if they've served less than 2 years) is by filling the vacancy of the presidency in some other manner. Technically, an ex-President could run as VP and the elected president could step down, but that would take a very loyal puppet of a presidential candidate who would be so weak in character as to almost be impossible to win an election. And everyone would recognize it as a sham candidacy making it even more of a long-shot.

Trump winning a House seat I guess is more likely, but Trump doesn't know how to run a legislative body and has no interest in doing so. He'd rather just control the money than running for office again.

Idea: MAGA OS
Replaces Windows for double the cost. Only let's you communicate with real citizens and blocks CNN, NBC and whatever it is. After 4 years it deletes all your files if you don't donate the same sum again into an anti-hostage fund.
In the ad it will say lifetime support, never need for a new version!

And then when a new version comes out, zero-day security flaws for the old release are sold by the maker to the highest bidder, and the users who get infected by them are blamed as being socialist by not upgrading?

Need support because of the infection? Yes, of course but you'll have to pay for it. After paying, please upgrade to the latest version because this product is end of life and therefore no longer elligable for lifetime support.

Is it noticable that I work in IT? :D

They're just stealing from the playbook of the preachers who have used the bible to 'identify' the exact date of the rapture. Then the date passes, and they realize the 'misinterpreteted' a small passage and the REAL date of the rapture is...

Yeah, cause that worked out so well for them the last time, when Trump was still actually in charge.

There is even more wrong with this crack pot theory. Removal by impeachment expecting to get to the Speaker is akin to playing ‘whack-a-mole’: when a President of VP is removed, a successor is appointed by the new president. In other words, when the vice president becomes president, the speaker does not move into the office of vice president.
