Trump's Trip To Walter Reed Might Be A Sign He's Preparing To Resign

House Democrats anticipate an impeachment vote of Donald Trump by Christmas.

Yet even if the Senate doesn't vote to remove him, he may resign.

It may even be sooner than we think.

Trump's surprise visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center this weekend is raising speculation over the possibility the president is crafting a pretext for a hasty departure from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

What is being communicated as a partial physical examination, press secretary Stephanie Grisham's claimed Trump is "healthy" and "without complaints."

Yet Walter Reed staff was not notified of Trump's arrival. Under normal circumstances, it would have ahead of time received instructions about a "VIP" visit.

Grisham said in a statement:

"The President remains healthy and energetic without complaints, as demonstrated by his repeated vigorous rally performances in front of thousands of Americans several times a week."

None other than conservative pundit Cheri Jacobus suggested the impromptu trip was not just part of an exit strategy--it was angling for a potential pardon.

She commented:

"[Trump is] getting his annual physical three months early is so he can quickly resign for alleged 'health reasons' now that he's guilty as hell and has nowhere left to run and hide."

She tweeted:

" Trump's annual physical isn't until February but he's going in now for 'portions' of it? He just needs a an excuse in case he needs to resign and get a 'compassion' pardon from Pence...His excuse to resign as the evidence piles up. Get his compassion pardon."

Presidents have not traditionally traveled secretly to Walter Reed for routine tests that can be performed at the White House.

Considering the administration's mendacious history concerning Trump's health, it may be plausible Trump is ill, or at least wants to portray the illusion he is.

If you're correct Rob, this will almost certainly usher in T. Gabbard as the next Commander in Chief. She is more polular with Trump voters than Trump himself and has substantial support from disaffected and nonestablishmnet democrats, radicals, the anti-war movement, libertarians, independents and old school republicnas who read the American Conservative. If we are truly serious about uniting the nation and bridging all sides, then we need to put aside our fantasies and appreciate that she is the one who can do it. Sanders cannot...that's just wishful thinking that will result in another disaster when a real, dyed in the wool neocon takes charge. As Paul Craig Roberts has warned, if Trump is ousted and a neocon regime emerges, it will mark the end of any pretext that we are a civilian democracy and not a military state.

I would love to believe you are right about Gabbard but unfortunately it's most likely just another fantasy. Most likely, the Democratic nomination will again go to someone who voted for the Iraq war. He may squeak through the general election, or not. More likely yes if it's against Pence.

PCR is no savant. He has some good insights, and some staggeringly incorrect ones. According to him the world economy would have collapsed by now and we'd be in nuclear winter since about 5 years ago. His observation about the "plunge protection team" was brilliant though.

p.s. If you and other supporters egg Gabbard on to a third party run and unlike the "spineless" Sanders she acquiesces then it's a GOP victory for sure.

"PCR is no savant. He has some good insights, and some staggeringly incorrect ones." True, Max, but to say PCR is wrong here because he is not always right is a fallacy. As we catholics maintain, only a Supreme Being is omniscient. As for Gabbard winning, I was implying that she would be running as an independent. The fact is that the war party will never nominate her (or Sanders) even if she swept the primaries, which obviously she won't. Without Gabbard running, it makes PCR correct: we will be left once more with a "choice" between neocons for commander-in-chief. No thanks, only an icollaborationist or a mascohist would once again vote LOTE ater decade upon decade of failure to stop the bloodshed.

Not implying PCR is of necessity wrong on this because he has been wrong before, just handicapping odds like everyone else. And I stand by mine for Tulsi Gabbard running as an independent and winning, much as I'd like to believe otherwise.

I'm actually glad to hear you say you'd like to believe otherwise! Gabbard's our last and only shot to stun the empire's spread... at least temporarily. Like being in Zombieland with one shell left in the chamber. Use it wisely and live another day.

Yes, no doubt, the 'impeachment inquiry' hearings may be exacting 'a heavy toll' on Trump's 'health' as the primaries 'get under way' - he's bragging about the 'the economy' but his dismal 1.5% growth rate is nothing special to brag about and his budget deficits exceeding a trillion a year annually and his national debt hitting twenty three trillion have especially ballooned after his exorbitant, needless, and so harmful to Main Street corporate tax cuts and extra tax cuts for the wealthy are 'piled on' to the national debt for the American People and the United States.

And don't forget the inordinate amount of carcinogeic acrylamides in his diet. If his steak consumption was pasture raised meat cooked rare at reduced heat once or twice a week, that might be the only healthy thing he eats. But even there he screws up by eating it often, well done and probably sourced rom CAFO. The rest of his diet...disgusting.

Respectably, I think you're wrong. She was my Governor. I met and talked to her one-on-one several times before her first win. She checks every box enabling her to be a highly respected American by every political bent, excluding Socialist. Of course, no real American wants to be respected by any Socialist.

Real American? You mean real Americans are only self-centered capitalists who don't care that there are millions of homeless people and those without healthcare, who don't care about the immigrants fleeing violence and starvation in their home countries, who knee-jerk at every proposal for hostile responses in foreign countries, who passionately support every person's right to possess assault rifles, who want to take away our fourth amendment rights? Is that what you call a real American?

Real Americans believe in democracy and free speech; capitalism run amok as it stands now destroys democracy. In fact, Socialism is more compatible with democracy than capitalism.

Typical response if you don't like it leave. Actually, if you have looked lately the United States has been spiraling toward third-world status as the number in poverty rises, the infrastructure worsens, longevity is reducing, our academic standing is lowering, but I prefer to stay and hope to correct it. Our "civilized" nation averages more than a mass shoting every day. Unregulated Capitalism has stripped the middle class. Unfortunately, there are those who are either unwilling or unable, to see and/or understand what has been taking place.

Do you realize the hardships the U.S. has imposed on Venezuela by our economic boycott? Or how it has tyrannized almost every country in Central and South America, assassinating or deposing many of their democratically-elected leaders because they believed in socialism and improving the lives of the people in their countries? Of course, this was not in the best interests of U.S. corporate interests which seeks to maintain control over those countries' resources, like the oil we want to access from Venezuela. The reason so many are fleeing the countries down under is because of hardships we have imposed on them.

America is not a "Democracy", we are a Representative Republic. It's not a small difference. I consider a "real American" believes in that and our Constitution as written or amended. Fake Americans believe in "feelings and fake-fairness". Capitalism is the root of limited resource distribution in our economy. It's our basis. Government welfare in limited amounts is acceptable. We've exceed that limit since L.B.J. Democracy enables "Mob Rule". It's the favorite of Socialistic dictatorships. Big difference when words mean things.

She is also a shrewd political operative, escaping the Trump administration with her reputation as an independent thinker intact, but just enough ass smooching to cash in on his popularity with GOP voters while distancing herself from his failings as a president and as a human being.

Yup. Pure fantasy. President Trump isn't going anywhere. Its amazing how otherwise smart people get caught up in the fake news echo chamber. Although I do predict he will have a new running mate. Pence will not be on the 2020 ticket. You heard it here first.

Why? Could happen but I haven't seen a signal. I'm surprised the Dems haven't created a two-fer situation to attach his jettison with Trump. After all, he is an avowed Christian. Isn't that now an impeachable sin?

Being completely serious, Trump has exposed the Dem Party for what they really are: Socialist cum Communist. Is there a worse political adjective in America? What would J.F.K. think if he saw his Party now. The hate for Trump is misplaced. He's the defibrillator for America's heart that finally stopped beating. L.B.J. was the disease.

JFK would be a republican now. The socialist, open borders, reparations, green new deal democrats don't really jive with his "what can you do for your country" philosophy.

All idle speculation, of course. But the fact that he's not young, not in great physical shape, doesn't appear to have the healthiest diet and his type A personality, to say nothing of his political and legal troubles, all must put enormous stress on his body. Clearly something is being withheld from the public. Ill health would be a good pretext for resigning--especially if Republicans are secretly communicating they'll vote to convict if it goes to the senate.

My recollection is Nixon's ill health--he was thoroughly stressed out after the impeachment ordeal--helped generate sympathy for Ford's pardon of him. He appeared to have suffered enough already. Trump doesn't whine about how much he is suffering, only about how unfairly he is being treated, so it might not work as well for him. Also, at least once in public he has tried to throw Pence under the bus.

Lee, yes we are a republic but our representatives no longer represent us -- they represent corporate interests. We still have democratic elections, though there is some fixing occurring more than ever before, and with the campaign funding fiasco because of the corrupt Supreme Court, our votes have become tainted because of manufactured consent. However, I have no idea what you are talking about when you say LBJ's mob rule. Can you explain that? While LBJ was not a dictator, he certainly was a player in the coup that assassinated JFK and which was a turning point in modern American history, giving control of the government over to the military-industrial complex, as Ike warned us might happen.
