Trump’s power is he is so mercurial that you just never know which way that malignant ding-dong is going to go. Is he going to freak out if he gets indicted, or is he just going to give up? I just don’t know. It could go either way. So, let’s look at both scenarios.
Trump goes peacefully
In this scenario, Trump is indicted, gets process and leaves, maybe giving a speech along the way. No big deal. It’s historic, but something of a dud all things considered. Trump’s mugshot becomes the source of much, much political discussion for decades to come…but, overall, the whole thing is kind of meh.
Trump doesn’t go peacefully
The OTHER scenario is Trump freaks the fuck out and gets back on Twitter to incite political violence. This would happen in the context of a lot of Blues literally celebrating in the street. The absolute worst case scenario is Trump rants about being indicted and a lot of Reds have the same idea — use their AR-15s to murder celebrating Blues who are having big public parties.
