I predict he'll be headed to a country that doesn't have an extradition treaty with the United States, possibly before the end of his term.

My whole life—what am I going to do? I’m going to say, I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics! I’m not going to feel so good. Maybe I’ll have to leave the country, I don’t know.

This relates to something I've wondered for some time--why did he run?

From what we've seen over the past four years, it certainly can't be out of a genuine desire to serve the nation and improve the lives of the people. Nor do I think it's sufficient to say it's simply a matter of ego, to enrich himself and his friends, or as Howard Stern believes, to boost the ratings on Celebrity Apprentice (meaning he had no intention of actually winning. Oops.)

Trump has been in serious legal jeopardy for years. Taxes, Cy Vance in the Southern District, lawsuits over Trump U, bank fraud...and you wonder if, at some point, someone whispered in his ear (Michael Cohen?) "you know, if you're President, they can't touch you." This would also explain what I at least perceive is an abnormal level of desperation about November 3rd--no candidates wants to lose...but what would you be willing to do if you believe you're going to jail if you do? A US version of Bibi Netanyahu.

Funny thing is, though, that by running he also increased his legal vulnerability by bringing his personal behavior into play. No need to pay off Stormy Daniels if you're just TV host and pitch man The Donald.

I've got a $1 bet at 5:1 odds that Joe Biden is inaugurated as the 47th President in January.

I think a post-Electoral College resignation, making Pence #46, followed by a federal pardon, is a reasonable possibility.
The past two prime numbered presidencies began with "B"; why not extend the streak? (I'd also be happy to see Biden as #46 and then Buttigieg as #47.)
