As impeachment becomes a real possibility, Trump is going to throw everyone under the bus before he gets taken down.

I apologize in advance to Jerry Seinfeld and especially to Larry David for what I about to say, but Trump is our George. The only difference is, George always played the coward. Trump is a coward.
There is a famous scene that maybe most accurately described the cowardice, and egomaniacal attitude of Seinfeld’s George Costanza. It was scene at a child’s birthday party and George spots a fire in the kitchen of an apartment. He immediately panics, begins yelling, “Fire! Fire!” He then proceeds to knock over a clown, a half dozen kids, as well as an ancient old woman in a walker, in order to get to the door first.
That’s our fearless leader everyone. Donald Trump is a coward and a bully who is just starting to realize that the big, white house he is currently residing in is on fire, only he’s too self-absorbed to realize that he’s the one who set it on fire. He is going to beat a path to the door, kicking screaming, trampling anyone and everyone who gets in his way. He’s going to do it sooner rather than later.
He’ll fight for a bit, as long as he thinks there are smaller people he can hold in front of him as shields, but eventually he will toss them away and make a run for it at the last second. He’s like every bad guy in every bad movie, that has been a big tough bully the entire movie only to cry and hide behind a little girl the moment the real hero comes to town.
This is an old Hollywood trope and like the reality television star that is he, Trump is going to do his best to play his part. Let’s just hope we’re not trapped in the burning building when he leaves.
