The thing about Trump is, you never quite know how things are going to strike his feeble old mind. To date, he hasn’t really gone transactional that much outside of the January 6th conspiracy and Twitter.
But what if he was speaker in 2023 and he felt if he could start a civil war — or threaten one — he could be POTUS again. Is that even possible?
Yes, sadly it is.
But he would have to be Speaker again. I would have to be personal. Otherwise, I don’t think his heart would be in it as much. If he was Speaker and he called for secession to put pressure on Democratic Senators, which states might actually take him up on it?
Well, South Carolina would go first for historic reasons, duh. Then Texas and Florida. At that point the whole country would collapse.
