A - Caligula, his misdeeds seem like a distant memory.

How about Caligula's horse, Incitatus? Apparently the emperor never made it a consul, but that should be no obstacle under the US Constitution. And all the horse ever did was to run about, eat stuff and produce horse ____ at regular intervals. In at least one of those respects he may be counted as Trump's equal.

Tail end of that horse and you got a deal. It'd be a step up.

:lol: :lol: :lol: But, joking aside, I' sure that even Trump is not quite as bad (yet) as Caligula was. If he continues to repeatedly top himself in mendacity, cruelty and cluelessness, however, he might yet become so.

If Caligula was President, Stormy Daniels would have a Cabinet position. I'm sure she is capable of many positions.

Republicans should parade 20 candidates through streets if insufferable and contrived debates while always intending for the same 3 old rich white candidates to "emerge from the diverse and democratic process".
oh wait...a party has already done that this year.

Republicans have no need to do any of that. They’ll just stick to one old rich white candidate, and will eliminate any attempts at an internal challenge to him:

Quote:
Four states are poised to cancel their 2020 GOP presidential primaries and caucuses, a move that would cut off oxygen to Donald Trump’s long-shot primary challengers.

Republican parties in South Carolina, Nevada, Arizona and Kansas are expected to finalize the cancellations in meetings this weekend, according to three GOP officials who are familiar with the plans.
The moves are the latest illustration of Trump’s takeover of the entire Republican Party apparatus. They underscore the extent to which his allies are determined to snuff out any potential nuisance en route to his renomination — or even to deny Republican critics a platform to embarrass him.

Trump advisers are quick to point out that parties of an incumbent president seeking reelection have a long history of canceling primaries and note it will save state parties money. But the president’s primary opponents, who have struggled to gain traction, are crying foul, calling it part of a broader effort to rig the contest in Trump’s favor.

“Trump and his allies and the Republican National Committee are doing whatever they can do to eliminate primaries in certain states and make it very difficult for primary challengers to get on the ballot in a number of states,” said former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), who recently launched his primary campaign against the president. “It’s wrong, the RNC should be ashamed of itself, and I think it does show that Trump is afraid of a serious primary challenge because he knows his support is very soft.”

That might be difficult at the swearing-in ceremony. What if the mosquito insisted on playing his suction nozzle on the Art of the Deal book and came up with ghostwriter blood?
