    I don't know, but I don't think so.

    When was the last time in the U.S. "nutjobs with guns" rioted in any meaningful way? The Oregon thing? What else?

    No, if Congress impeaches Trump, it'll be for something egregious, and no, I don't think they'll be any meaningful riots from dudes with guns (i.e. revolution).

    By the way, are we taking bets on what craziness happens on Inauguration Day?

    Because there is no way something crazy doesn't happen, is there?

    Of course, but I just think no matter how bizarre an idea any of us can come up with, the reality will blow it out of the water.

    If things continue going on this way, 2018 & 2020 will end up being a huge backlash against Republican government.

    Republicans themselves are not complete idiots, though their base might be. Turtle McConnell has been pretty reluctant to nuke the filibuster for instance, which is a clear indication that he's not confident in a long-lasting Republican govt.

    They will act out of self interest if nothing else

    I'm hoping a snackbar blows himself up on stage, taking Donnie, Pence, McConnell, and Cruz with him.

    Eh, I guess I could live with Ryan. He'd just spend all his time trying to convince people to gut medicare, which will literally never get touched.

    2016 was supposed to be a backlash against the republican government, and look what we got.

    A 2.7m vote deficit, and multiple Senate/House seats lost?

    Don't get me wrong, Dems fucked up this cycle. But the backlash against Obama was a tepid mewling compared to the wave that landed Obama in the White House in '08. For whatever reason, liberals don't vote with the same discipline as conservatives. There needs to be extra motivation to turn them out, and I think anger will do a decent job of that in 2018-2020.

    I can only go off whats been going on so far, which leads me to believe that literally nothing will happen. Like, a couple thousand MAGA diehards, Trump in the rain, C-list country rock "stars", a bit of fumbling around on the oath (*sniff*) which will be widely ridiculed but quickly forgotten. Then the posse will retreat to its new den for cocaine & crumpets, and the day will end with everyone agreeing to put off any real work until next week, or maybe the one after, next month for sure. Listen Bob, lets just get through the first quarter and then well see about governing.
