Also, where have Jared and Jr been since their testimonies? Haven't seen a peep from either.
I'm more worried about how his supporters and in particular how the Breitbart crowd would react. This is their golden (orange) boy. Having him removed by "the establishment" is going to be a call to arms.

Yes. Under the narrative that our government and institutions are all a fraud. Deep state, fake news, George Soros, etc. Pretty sure his cult followers splinter into heavily armed militias. And our elections start looking like elections in the Middle East - where everything has corruption accusations, riots erupt, nobody trusts the results, etc.

At least Bannon is warning them.

Also there's the incestuous abuse, but that won't be revealed publically until the girls feel safe enough to release their tell-alls.
(IE: when orange daddy is secure in it's grave.)

Mark my words.

But Trump's right about Puerto Rico! Normally, first responders should be out in a month. Normally, FEMA should be out in a year or two. They're supposed to respond to emergencies. That wouldn't be sufficient for Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico literally needs an act of Congress to get rebuilt. It needs something like what the Rural Electrification Act did in 1936.

Serious question for the smart people (which I will freely admit I am not when it comes to stuff like this): if something like this happened, how serious would be the possibility of a civil war starting to some degree?

How does this surprise you, Bannon! How did you not know of Trump's incompetence before you signed up to be on his team?

Not gonna happen. It's all bluster being perpetuated by a haggard, dying drunkard (bannon) and a handful of socially stunted rejects. Fearful cowards, the lot of 'em.

Honestly, I've been thinking about that...and I can't really say that a split at this point would be a bad thing if it were to happen cleanly. The divide in this country is more visible than any wall Trump could build at Mexico. It's been hundreds of years and we're still basically at the same point. When do we admit that there's clearly 2 ways of thinking in this country which conflict and will never resolve?

If it's anything like a bad marriage, we'll all shut up until the money runs out.

Yeah, the die-hard Trumpers are too lazy and ineffectual to actually do something. They'll most likely just yell out some unintelligible nonsense about #maga, and then go right back to their feed-bags.

Zero. The US government has the best military in the world. It's currently illegal to use drones against US citizens, but that can be fixed with a new law. People with modified AR-15 rifles and flack jackets wouldn't stand a chance against battalions of trained soldiers.

The worst case is a large number of those armed militia groups would become radicalized and start bombing government buildings and power stations. The government would respond by becoming oppressive, wipe out the militias, and then would have the tools to control the populace.

Even Rush Limbaugh believes Trump is becoming a dictator and it's scaring him.

Sadly, this might be what it takes to get Trump's die-hard followers to start turning against him. I know a guy who listens to Rush (not the band) every single day, and (sometimes) repeats his talking points if/when we ever broach the topic of politics. If Rush (still not the band) starts saying anti-Trump stuff, I think this guy (and others) will follow suit.

Rush had me going until he said that Trump's "motives are pure".

Purely racist?
Purely narcissistic?
Purely trying to change the narrative?

Wouldn't the worst case be the military turning against the government? I know it's not likely to happen here, but then we could say that about a lot of stuff that's happened over the last year.
