Some things are hard to believe:
- A President who repeatedly misrepresents facts is respected by many.
- A President would pardon close associates
- Administration officials would secretly correspond with foreign governments
- An Administration would ignore Congressional subpoenas.
- The Hatch Act would be flaunted
- The Emoluments Clause would be moot.
- A President would disregard intelligence briefings.
- Inspectors General could be removed on highly questionable grounds
- The Dept. of Justice could be made subservient to a Presidents political interests.
- A President would demand personal loyalty from subordinates
- Administration agencies would adjust their recommendations to a president’s whims.
- Whistle blowers would be fired.
- A president would stonewall on releasing tax returns.
- Confidence in fair elections would be seriously called into question.
- A defeated presidential candidate might suggest clinging to office.
I am sure there is much more.
