It's possible for Trump to be both stupid, and also represent an existential threat to the US. With his seat of power it's fair to say that the people he's riling up, plus the things he tries sign into law show blatantly how dangerous he is.
Correct, he's stupid, narcissistic, and malicious, and a bunch of stupid-malicious people worship him to the extent some have already died and/or killed in his name. That will probably continue whether or not the DoJ prosecutes and jails him, so they might as well. Bar him from office, obviously, unless you're giving him 15+ years AKA life.

"Bar him from office" That is really the practical gain of jailtime for the annoying orange. If he did not run for the next election, then it's done. Republicans will have time to build another leadership, we all know that it will not be nobody awesome, but hardly will be worse.

Yeah they'll have to run DeSantis with Trump's endorsement, but if Americans don't want to jump straight to the Fourth Reich, the choice should be obvious in that election. If not, then I guess all empires gotta fall sometime.

The potential brightside to this is once Trump cultists see how many rights are stolen from prisoners they could rhetorically be convinced of prison reform, or at least to a degree that people won't have such miserable lives over nonsense, harmless offenses.

Likely they will create a nonsense theory instead of that. Also, he probably will get special treatment, like everywhere else when a former president gets jail time.

The biggest cruelty of US penal system for me that is looking from outside is the slave labor (even that you don't call that). It's impossible that Trump will get this no matter what.

Trump was a great President. I can't wait until he puts the current set of legal threats from the left to rest and becomes our President again. I could sure use some cheaper prices on things and he's the man to make that happen! I'll be voting for him again. MAGA!!!!!

Upholding our democracy,
So arresting political opponents is now "upholding our democracy". Can't wait for that boomerang to make it's return trajectory.
Americans will be able to mentally heal
You guys really do have emotional damage. No wonder you are confused about your gender.
after Trump's 4 years of abuse and mental gymnastics, and it will send a message to the world that we don't tolerate Trump's type of reckless and absurd behavior. He's really deranged, self-absorbed, and always looking for a grift. We don't need this type of person living among us, let-alone leading the country.
Trump literally broke you.
Post automatically merged:

We aren't talking about imprisoning Trump because he's mentally ill, though, we're talking about imprisoning him because he's committed multiple federal crimes. I sure would love it if he went for the insanity defense during the trial though, might make a few people re-think their loyalty to him.
Are the walls closing in on dRumpF or is this the beginning of the end? After 7 years it's become tiresome.
It'll help improve their mental health even more when he's dead and buried, but putting him in prison will just speed the process of him being forgotten about. We'd have roughly a year of MAGAts lashing out violently in response to it, but then things would calm down.
The only violent ones are BLM, KLANtifa and the trans jihadists threatening Target stores and shooting up Christian schools now. Oh, and those Jane's Revenge people attacking pregnancy centers who still haven't even been arrested.
