President Donald Trump will soon resign, possibly in a matter of weeks. I don't know any more than anyone else, and maybe it's just wishful thinking, but that's the feeling I have.

The drip, drip, drip of troubling revelations reminds me very much of Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal that forced the President to resign. Trump is even more unpopular than Nixon, so if it can be proven that his campaign colluded with the Russian government to sabotage the 2016 election, which seems more and more likely, the President will be in more than a heap of trouble.

Now it is true that Trump lives beyond the reality-based world, and can often position himself in a dense cloud of denial. But we also know that he is a fanatical consumer of news media, and if developments point in the direction of a serious scandal, he may not be able to stand up to it.

We all know he does not tolerate criticism well, and a constant stream of it might just be more than he can stomach. He can't be enjoying the media assault and the lousy poll numbers. Even Republicans in Congress can see the handwriting on the wall and may be compelled to call for an independent investigation. Trump may be asking himself, "Is this what I signed up for? Is it worth it?"

If the evidence points to a potential for impeachment, or completely destroys his credibility--what's left of it--he may not want to continue spinning his wheels and pumping up his alternative reality. Trump can't be having much fun, with a constant barrage of negative press and continuous damaging reports. He spent his whole life in business being fawned over, with people close to him pumping up his fragile ego. Now he's up against a constant barrage of negative press. Can he handle this much intense pressure? He must have a breaking point, and it may come sooner than later.

It is quite possible that he will be out of office within weeks.Recent revelations combined with Trump's narcsissistic and tenuous personality may be too much for him to deal with. I think he would rather step down and blame the press and other "enemies" than be impeached or forced to resign.

We may be seeing a President Pence sooner than we would have thought possible.
