Trump and Impeachment


Bookies Offers Yuuuge Odds On Donald Trump’s Impeachment Within 6 Months

Ireland’s Paddy Power is also taking bets on Trump leaving office early.

What are the odds that Donald Trump will be impeached or won’t complete his first term in office?
According to Paddy Power, they’re pretty high.
The Irish bookmaker is currently taking bets on the president-elect being impeached within six months of his presidency at 4-1 ― and offering odds of 7-4 that he’ll prematurely leave the White House.


It’s taking further wagers on the first thing that Trump will say during his inauguration speech Friday. His catchphrase “Make America Great Again” is odds on at 5-4, the term “job creation” is seen as very probable at 3-1 and “Russia” is likewise at 5-1.


While America may still be recovering from one of the most divisive presidential election campaigns in decades, the company is also already taking bets on who may run in 2020.
Should he not leave office beforehand, Trump is odds-on to run for reelection at 11-10. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Vice President-elect Mike Pence are hotly tipped at 7-1 each, while first lady Michelle Obama is 8-1.
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is a long shot at 275-1, while her rap star husband Kanye West ― who has said he will run for president in the future ― is at 100-1.


Some of Paddy Power’s odds may seem attractive, but one should remember that the company rashly paid out to people betting on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton to become president weeks before the 2016 election after erroneously thinking that her victory was a done deal.
In 2012, it also offered odds of 100-1 that Trump would win the race. And we know how that turned out.

  1. Schokkend!
    Ook Duitse Journalist Udo Ulfkott sterft 13 januari 2017 op 56 jarige leeftijd onder verdachte omstandigheden,zgn hartstilstand.....
    Hij onthulde in zijn boek dat de media in o.a Europa onder controle staan van de CIA ........

    1. "Hij vertelt ook dat hij spijt heeft en niet langer wil meewerken aan deze oorlogsmachine. Want dat is wat hij ontdekte, dat er geen andere bedoeling achter zit dan om telkens weer oorlog uit te lokken. Dat hij bereid is de consequenties te nemen van zijn openbaringen en dat het mogelijk makkelijker voor hem is dan voor iemand anders omdat hij ongehuwd en kinderloos is. Hij realiseert zich dus ter dege dat er risico's verbonden kunnen zijn aan zijn verklaringen."

  2. Gisteravond bij DWDD. Aandacht voor de zgn. Designated Survivor. Ook sinds kort een serie van met Kiefer Sutherland. Werd expliciet benoemd dat dat fenomeen (tot voor kort blijkbaar) buiten Washington 'low key' werd gehouden ... en dat 't grote publiek daar niet bekend mee is/ was. Best bizar.

  3. PS: Laatse reactie was van mij, Arnoud. Excuus.

    1. In North Dakota, Republican lawmakers have introduced a bill that would shield drivers from liability if they UNINTENTIONALLY INJURE OR KILL a pedestrian obstructing traffic. It’s one of several bills aimed at cracking down on the resistance against the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline, which has seen Native American water protectors at times marching on public roads and highways. https://www.democracynow.org/2017/1/18/headlines/north_dakota_pushes_bill_to_protect_drivers_who_hit_water_protectors
