Something Wicked This Way Comes

via The Washington Examiner:
"They are party loyalists," Schumer continued. "He's given them a Supreme Court nominee that they want, but my prediction is that if he keeps up on this path, which is likely — I don't think he'll change, within three to four months, you'll going to see a whole lot of Republicans breaking with him. And that's the salvage of America. That's the hope of America."

Sen. Chuck Schumer made the prediction today that he believed Trump would be gone by this summer. Although I appreciate his optimism, I'm not sure that will happen as quickly as he hopes. I'm thinking maybe summer, yes, but I'm guessing Republicans will wait it out until summer 2018 before the mid-term election.

If the political atmosphere continues to be as toxic as it is today (see any and all of explosive ongoing town hall meetings) , then Republicans will want to seriously distance themselves from the twittering troll otherwise they'll risk getting hammered in the mid-terms. Which is precisely what happened to Nixon way back when in the summer of 1974 when Republicans deserted him in droves and he realized he had no political capital left and chose instead to resign.
