Oh my. I pondered the possibilites:
- Impeachment? Nope.
- Coup? No, despite my general concern, the US military is not going to remove Trump. They might not follow unlawful orders, but coup? No.
- 25h amendment? Almost certainly not, since Trump is picking most folks who are loyal to him, but it is possible. Unlikely but not impossible.
- That option involving failure by the Secret Service. Not likely as they protected an African-American president successfully for eight years. An orange one should be easier.
Trump is overweight, eats poorly, and is going to be under great stress, so heart attack or stroke.
So, no, I told the student, don't bet too much on these fragile reeds. Resist instead.
Plus, he is the oldest person to hold the office. I give him two years, heart attack or stress.
