I think Hoof was also alluding to the fact that Mike Pence might actually be the next president of the United States..
Oh, I see. Yes, could happen if Trump steps down. I don't think he'll be removed on medical grounds.

There is a theory that he steps down and Pence pardons him, thus keeping him out of prison.

Exactly so.
We could see a Ford/Nixon situation.
Trump might stand down before his term ends, Pence become President briefly and then use his power to pardon Trump for anything he may have subsequently got charged with.

I think if you look at the world through the eyes of a grifter and fraudster (which the likes of Trump and Farage are) you begin to see how this might play out. He’ll do everything he can to sabotage a peaceful handover, whilst also looking to cover his own and his families future. It might sound twee and a little bit trite these days but there isn’t much thought for the principle of public service is there?

Trump sacking a tranche of defence and security officials and replacing them with allies is reassuring... US headlines are more like a ravaged central African country with a military dictator every day.

Yep, busy appointing people who will cover up his misdeeds and shape intelligence reports to his own ends for when the prosecutions rain down on him...

Easily solved. As soon as Trump is escorted under armed guard from the Whitehouse and Biden assumes control, he immediately sacks every Trump appointee and replaces them with a demonstrably bipartisan candidate.

Job done. Don't mess about, Joe, this is serious shit.

That's assuming that by 20th Jan the armed guard won't be beholden to Trump. It is serious shit and Trump's heavyweight legal enablers (crooks) are trying to exploit various loopholes to see their mafia boss stay in power.

That isn't going to happen I don't think...
