Tinfoil hat time

I am now envisioning a scenario where after President Trump gets crushed in November, on Jan 19, he resigns office so President Pence can Pardon him. President for a day Pence carries the title POtUS and the Secret Service detail and cost to the taxpayers that go along with it, and Trump has nothing to worry about.

1. I don't think he's capable of such nuanced thinking.

Instead, he'll spend the entire time between November 3 and January 20 saying how he was robbed, there was rampant voter fraud, the Democrats need to be all arrested and thrown in jail.

7. Yes. Ford pardoned Nixon preemptively.

Destroyed his own presidency.

4. Pardon is federal only

State of New York and 49 other states can indict him on State charges even with a pardon.

5. That would be a nightmare for Biden

By that time, the Biden camp will have printed millions of "46" slogans everywhere. If Pence is President for even one day, he'll be 46 and Biden will be 47.
