With Trump it seems that he does whatever he wants but on the other hand he’s just had to pay out of his pocket $2 million plus fine for using he’s foundation as his own bank account.

Yes, I read about that earlier. Claimed before, just as he did with Trump University, that he would never settle. But I don't think he had to pay a fine if I read correctly. The NY AG was seeking $2.8 million, but the judge settled it for $2 million. His corruption has no boundaries. The sad truth about this is if this were either you or I, we'd be in pinstripes right now.
I stand corrected, the $2 million was the fine, I misunderstood and thought that was the amount raised at the "charity event".

Sorry you are wrong, Bill Clinton WAS impeached, just not convicted by Senate.

"On December 19, 1998, Clinton became the second American president to be impeached (the other being Andrew Johnson, who was impeached in 1868)[a] when the House formally adopted articles of impeachment and forwarded them to the United States Senate for adjudication. A trial in the Senate began in January 1999, with Chief Justice William Rehnquist presiding. On February 12, Clinton was acquitted on both counts as neither received the necessary two-thirds majority vote of the senators present for conviction and removal from office – in this instance 67. On Article One, 45 senators voted to convict while 55 voted for acquittal. On Article Two, 50 senators voted to convict while 50 voted for acquittal.[3] Consequently, Clinton remained in office for the balance of his second term."

The Bad Boy.
Luckily the USA has this process of impeachment., In other countries one would have a choice of beheading or being overthrown and escape to a neutral country like Nicaragua
Maybe Mr Dump could head back to Germany

And Nixon was not impeached because he resigned the day after being urged to by several leading members of his own party, who told him that he was going to lose the vote on impeachment in Congress.

I don't know, but given the fact that Trump is the greatest at everything and has to be best at everything known to man, maybe he will be the first to be convicted in the Senate. I know, wishful thinking.

SO, if you are indited and go on trial for some crime and the jury finds you not guilty, do you still go to jail?

Of course not.

But the social stigma of subsequently being worth less than a footnote in the great history US presidents should suffice. He can of course look forward to a wonderful post-presidential career in irrelevance, guesting as a political expert on Fox News, wallowing in the ever deepening and fetid ejaculate of frequent Hannity mutual circle-jerks.

Kanye can run for POTUS under the banner of the National Narcissist Party and have the incumbent as his running mate.

"The Looming ‘1984’ Election

Like it or not, 2020 is going to be a plebiscite on an American version of Orwell’s Nineteen-Eighty-Four. For a variety of reasons, the 2020 election is going to be a referendum beyond Donald Trump’s record and his Democratic opposition. The furor that Trump has incurred, and the radical antithesis to his agenda and first term, have redefined the looming election. It is becoming a stark choice between a revolutionary future versus American traditionalism. The choice in reductionist terms will be one between a growing, statist Panopticon, fueled by social media, a media-progressive nexus, and an electronic posse. Online trolls and government bureaucrats seek to know everything about us, in Big Brother fashion to monitor our very thoughts to ferret out incorrect ideas, and then to regiment and indoctrinate us to ensure elite visions of mandated equality and correct behavior—or else!

In other words, the personality quirks of a Trump or an Elizabeth Warren or a Bernie Sanders will become mostly irrelevant given the existential choice between two quite antithetical ideas of future America. In 2020 we will witness the penultimate manifestation of what radical progressivism has in store for us all—and the furious, often desperate, and unfettered pushback against it.

We are also well beyond even the stark choices of 1972 and 1984 that remained within the parameters of the two parties. In contrast, the Democratic Party as we have known it, is extinct for now. It has been replaced since 2016 by a radical progressive revolutionary movement that serves as a touchstone for a variety of auxiliary extremist causes, agendas, and cliques—almost all of them radically leftwing and nihilistic, and largely without majority popular support."
