Bill Kristol is at it again, this time fantasizing about President Trump telling the nation this Sunday that he won’t be running for reelection kind of like what President Lyndon Johnson did in 1968:
Trump has cancelled his trip to his New Jersey country club this weekend, so will presumably be at the White House. If memory serves, President Johnson made his surprise announcement that he wouldn't seek renomination or reelection in 1968 on a Sunday night, from the White House.

Chris Hayes has a similar fantasy, too:
More than any other time in this terrible disaster of a presidency, some GOP Senators should take a Goldwater-style walk over to the WH and tell Trump to pack it in. It will never happen but it should.

And we know how libs would react to Mike Pence:
These insipid liberal fantasies of the Good Republicans are always grating but in this case the result of the daydream is that Mike Pence would do a better job managing a public health crisis.
Mike Pence? Really?
Come on. https://t.co/jFvCa1vWT8

Question: Would the Lincoln Project support Pence?
Curious what you and the people from the Lincoln Project will do if he resigns before the end of his term. Will you jump then to support Pence?

And Hayes is no better:
Chris Hayes has a baby brain. https://t.co/3TaKb1CrXA
