The Republican House would have impeached her at least twice, the first time for her emails and Benghazi, the second time when she let the coronavirus kill 15,000 Americans before she got it under control. The Republicans would have considered that utterly unforgivable, and as Americans went back to their beaches and ballparks last summer, another impeachment trial would be playing out in the Senate.
She wouldn’t have been convicted either time—it takes 66 votes in the Senate—but the Republicans would weep about the blood on her hands and cry electoral vengeance.
Meantime, Trump wouldn’t have gone anywhere. The Justice Department would have declined to prosecute him for conniving with the Russians, even though there was plenty of evidence that he had, in a spirit of national unity. Fox would make sure we had no such thing as national unity. Stormy Daniels would still be as anonymous as most porn stars.
He'd win the Republican nomination again, just by calling the rest of the candidates pussies, like he did last time. Of course, there would be controversy about his age. “He’s 74,” the desperate Democrats would sneer. “It would be like us nominating Joe Biden.”
The votes of American guys, deeply disgusted by being ruled over by a strong, competent woman, would carry Trump to victory. So instead of the nightmare we’ve all lived through since January of 2017, our nightmare would just be beginning next year.
Instead of being over. Keep your fingers crossed, and vote as hard as you can.
