Interesting Facebook Post by Robert Reich

This morning I phoned my friend, a former Republican member of Congress.

Me: What's going on? Seems like the White House is imploding, and Republicans are going down with the ship.

Him (chuckling): We're officially a banana republic.

Me: Seriously, what are you hearing from your former colleagues on the Hill?

Him: They're convinced Trump is out of his gourd.

Me: So what are they going to do about it?

Him: Remember what I told you at the start of this circus? They planned to use Trump's antics for cover, to get done what they most wanted – big tax cuts, rollbacks of regulations, especially financial. They'd work with Pence behind the scenes and forget the crazy uncle in the attic.

Me: Yeah.

Him: Well, I'm hearing a different story now. Stuff with Sessions is pissing them off. And now Trump's hired that horse's ass Scaramucci -- a communications director who talks dirty on CNN! Plus Trump's numbers are in freefall. They think he's gonna hurt them in '18 and '20.

Me: So what's the plan?

Him: They want him outa there.

Me: Really? Impeachment?

Him: Doubt it, unless Mueller comes up with a smoking gun.

Me: Or if he fires Mueller.

Him: Not gonna happen.

Me: So how do they get him out?

Him: Put someone else up in '20. Lots of maneuvering already. Pence, obviously. Cruz thinks he has a shot.

Me: But that won't help them in the midterms. What's the plan before then?

Him: Lots think he's fritzing out.

Me: Fritzing out?

Him: Going totally bananas. Paranoia. You want to know why he fired Priebus, wants Sessions out, and is now gunning for Tillerson?

Me: He wants to shake things up?

Him (chuckling): No. The way I hear it, he thinks they've been plotting against him.

Me: What do you mean?

Him: Twenty-fifth amendment! Read it! A Cabinet can get rid of a president who's nuts. Trump thinks they've been preparing a palace coup. So one by one, he's firing them.

Me: I find it hard to believe they're plotting against him.

Him: Of course not! It's ludicrous. Sessions is a loyal lapdog. Tillerson doesn't know where the bathroom is. That's my point. Trump is fritzing out. Having manic delusions. He's actually going nuts.

Me: And?

Him: Well, it's downright dangerous.

Me: Yeah, but that still doesn't tell me what Republicans are planning to do about it.

Him: Look. How long do you think it will be before everyone in Washington knows he's flipping out? I don't mean just weird. I mean really off his rocker.

Me: I don't know.

Him: No all that long.

Me: So what are you telling me?

Him: They don't have to plot against him. It will be obvious to everyone that he's got to go. That's where the twenty-fifth amendment really does comes in.

Me: So you think…

Him: Who knows? But he's losing it fast. My betting is he's out of office before the midterms. And Pence is president.
