If Donald Trump was attempting to send Democrats into meltdown mode with his weird tweet about pardoning himself, well, then, mission accomplished.
President Nixon asked the Department of Justice if he could pardon himself. They said no, as no one may be the judge in their own case. He resigned three days later.
In case you want to follow the Nixon model, that would be Thursday. https://t.co/5ntHaySTBJ

Did he come to look stupid, then? Because he’s gotten pretty good at that. Seriously, Congressman, you should know better by now than to get the Resistance’s hopes up.
OMG if only dreams came true … if only ☁️☁️☁️

This is the best tweet I have read in a long time. Yes Thursday would be a great day if this would come true.

And then there’s poor Eric Garland, whose body is ready for a resignation:
I’m free Thursday! Let’s do it!

When Thursday rolls around and Trump’s still in office, that may very well be the thing that knocks Garland’s last screw loose.
