If its something Trump is involved in? My guess is some big action on the part of the DOJ (maybe legal action against Clinton or other Democrats on false charges).
I think that's a good guess!
But would it be effective enough to turn the tide?
Probably not.

In fact there is possibly a chance it might backfire, as people might see it as an abuse of power. (Kind of like how Trump thought "nominate a woman for the supreme court will help shore up support with women voters" seems to be backfiring on the Republicans, as most people still think it should be left to whomever wins the 2020 election to select the new judge.)

I couldn't say for sure that Barrett hasn't gone down as a plus for Trump? There are too many other considerations to judge.

trump claims his getting covid was a "blessing from God". Having trouble how he arrived at that conclusion. Drug therapy maybe?

Currently more people are opposed to her being confirmed than against... (Right now its 46% against, 42% for)

It also seems to have helped energize the Democrats, and increased their fundraising efforts.

I am so sick of donald trump and I hope the American voters will concur and throw the **** out of office, lest they continue to be the laughing stock around most of the world. Suggesting people not protect themselves from a proven deadly virus seems somehow criminal to me, and I would like to see a prosecution. Of course he has numerous others to face should he land on the street before statute of limitations run out on previous charges. Sorry to derail you Shady.

They're talking about the 25th amendment. Trump seems particularly unhinged these days.  He's on Hannity right now, apparently, after spending ONE HOUR on FOX this morning.

During a pandemic and a campaign.

The Regeneron Trump was given was originally derived  from cells of an embryonic kidney from an elective abortion.

Hmm.

The CEO of Regeneron is a member of Trump's golf club. Trump calls him Lenny.

Speaking of unhinged, the news from Michigan today was pretty insane.   The FBI arrested a bunch of "militia" guys for a plot to kidnap Governor Whitmer, hold a "trial", and execute her for treason.  This is domestic terrorism.  These guys look like a bunch of cavemen in their mugshots.  When Trump tweeted "LIBERATE MICHIGAN", these are the people who were listening.

Which brings me to a nagging thought that has been bothering me.  We know that Trump isn't going to accept the results of the election. He's going to use every possible tactic to try to overturn or invalidate the results.   It's more than likely that he will declare the results a fraud and claim that the election was rigged or stolen.  And some number of people are going to listen. We could see a lot of chaos in America from November to January... and perhaps beyond.

This problem isn't going to go away.  Facebook and Russia have too much invested for unity to take hold now...

Yup. Trump did everything he could to stir up dissent. Then, after the kidnapping attempt was foiled, complained that the governor wasn't grateful to him personally for stopping the plot.

Pelosi is trying to use their 25th. amendment to remove Trump from office because of him being umfit mentally. It's a ploy being used for the purpose of the election, even though it would be quite legitimate.

Seems like a dumb move, imo.  Even if it were successful, all the republicans who've had enough of Trump would probably have no problem supporting Pence.  And if it doesn't work, just another reason for people who think Trump has had a raw deal from Democrats will just double down on their support, even if they were wavering.

Trump should get voted out, not 'removed' by some other means.

Yes, it could be dumb but it also could be smart because of the message it sends on the fact that Trump can be considered a candidate for the 25th. amendment. And it's also strengthened with the visible move away from Trump by a few GOP senators already.

Big decisions such as this are never clear cut dumb or smart. It also provides a solution for a psychopath never accepting defeat. However unsatisfactory that is for Trump.

And the political instability in that country now is so shaky that it could result in violence on Trump's behalf. Larger numbers of extreme rightist would be able to gain the courage that the 13 lacked.
