Right wing Trump supporter saying, half jokingly I hope, that the election should be cancelled and the status quo remains until the 2024 election.

Of course no election means that the term limit amendment wouldn't aply to Trump running in 2024 for a third term.


In some Trumpees dreams...

About a year to a year and a half, their was discussion on DJT if he was impeached could he run for a 3rd term. Since the Impeachment farce, nobody has brought this topic up. Technically, DJT was impeached but found not guilty. So does that mean he can run for a 3rd term?

I think he can because during the Impeachment the House Managers were trying to have DJT barred from running again. This discussion is almost pure academic but Trump has the money to see if this is correct or does this SC throw out the current standard! My guess is "No!" but RBG is in poor health. If RBG retires or steps down then the court would have 6-3 split between Conservative and Liberal Judges. A court challenge could be awaiting a new SC! Fair warning to the never Trumpers this topic could upset you! Gcomeau quit hyperventilating. Here's a paper bag just breath into the bag and calm your breathing Gcomeau! :P

Under what interpretation of the constitution does an impeachment allow a 2-term President to run for a third, smr? What's the law text, what are the precedents?

I mean, I know you won't be able to produce either, you being you. I'm just curious to see which completely batshit person you're parroting now.

Nancy Pelosi et.al. are just holding their fire and keeping their powder dry. After November the subject probably is mute... Of course if Trump tries a coup after he loses, all bets are off.

Yes, RBG is in poor health. But she seems to have more lives than a cat. Wonder how many of them she has used up...

In an extrapolation of the rule how often someone who has ascended to being president can be reelected as president? Except that it doesn't actually apply when you are already elected president.

My opinion is that this is a nonsense discussion. Two terms. That's it. The only caveat is for a vice president who assumes office in the second half of his predecessor's term.
