Brad Parscale, the Trump campaign manager, predicted yesterday that the president and his family will become "a dynasty," AP's Mike Blood reports from the California Republican Convention in Indian Wells.

"The Trumps will be a dynasty that will last for decades, propelling the Republican Party into a new party," Parscale said.
"One that will adapt to changing cultures. One must continue to adapt while keeping the conservative values that we believe in

I can deal with a Kennedy, Clinton, or Obama dynasty, or even a Bush or Reagan one.

At least those are all families with bona fide, legitimate politicians who are actually qualified for the job and have lived a life of public service.

This guy's family? Their qualifications seem to consist of Sharpie markers and Russian oligarchs.

Seems like the education system has done a pretty good job…Americans claim to want their freedoms. Then they latch onto all these oligarchs.

I'm not so sure. May not be so easy when Trumpo is behind bars.

We can only hope!

On the other hand, can there be a sealed indictment over "individual one" like prosecutors will do against "John Doe" until the prosecution can be prosecuted!

With a little luck the next AG will have more balls than Obama's AG did, if so he or she (Kamala Harris?) will have enough corruption trails to keep them busy for the entire first term.

They're systematically looting every budget they control, there has to be a comeuppance for that.

I've been concerned since the beginning that Trump might be planning to have himself declared either King, or Lord Protector of the Commonwealth.

I think we can rule out an orderly transition of power if a Democrat wins in 2020.

I'm expecting him to challenge the results of every state that he loses, after all there's been clear evidence that foreign powers are attempting to manipulate the election. And that will suddenly become important to him the moment the votes are counted. He'll actually start quoting the excellent work of Bob Mueller and his team of witch hunters.

But I do hope that someday we can name a federal prison after him, with special accommodations for him and his family, and of course we won't have to pay his organization license fees to use his brand name for that one.

I think Trump will do what he was (it seems obvious to me) planning to do when he lost to Clinton: blame it on the deep state, or fraudulent voters, or whatever.

And then I think he will slink away.
