Scaramucci: GOP may need to replace Trump for 2020
"We are now in the early episodes of 'Chernobyl' on HBO, where the reactor is melting down and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process,"

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci told Axios Sunday that Republicans may need to find a candidate to replace President Trump in 2020.

"We are now in the early episodes of 'Chernobyl' on HBO, where the reactor is melting down and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process," Scaramucci, who was ousted from his job after 11 days, told the outlet.

"A couple more weeks like this and 'country over party' is going to require the Republicans to replace the top of the ticket in 2020." Scaramucci, a prominent Republican donor, said that if Trump "doesn't reform his behavior, it will not just be me, but many others will be considering helping to find a replacement in 2020."  "Right now, it's an unspeakable thing," he continued.  "But if he keeps it up, it will no longer be unspeakable. The minute they start speaking of it, it will circulate and be socialized. We can't afford a full nuclear contamination site post 2020."

Scaramucci's comments to Axios follow him last week calling Trump's visit to El Paso, Texas, to meet with survivors of a mass shooting a "catastrophe."

Trump fired back soon after, saying that Scaramucci "knows very little about me other than the fact that this Administration has probably done more than any other Administration in its first 2 1/2 years of existence."

Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld (R) is the only Republican to announce a challenge to Trump for the nomination so far.

Former South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford (R) is also considering a possible candidacy.

Any challenger would likely face long odds in a primary bid. The Republican National Committee has already voted to express its "undivided support" for Trump as its 2020 nominee, and Trump's reelection campaign has staffed up with party insiders to line up its delegate strategy well ahead of the party's nominating convention.

I wouldn't say it was fake, but it could be totally ineffective.

He's never going to get primaried. It just isn't done. Oh, people do run against the incumbent, but they get almost no support or votes.

Only once in the history of this country has an elected president (i.e. not a VP who ascended to the presidency on the death of the president) failed to be nominated by his party for reelection. That distinction goes to Franklin Pierce, who was elected in 1852 and denied another nomination in favor of James Buchanan in 1856. They both sucked anyway.
