A scenario: Trump's base gets so extreme they decide he's a sellout and he faces a primary challenge from the right of him. Yesterday's Tea Party darlings are already today's RINOs sometimes.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Already some rumblings in that direction of the rightier sites.

Maybe I shouldn't say "becomes more extreme" so much as "finds they can't always get him in line"

There isn’t enough mud. “Enough mud” doesn’t exist. Infinite mud would still be insufficient.

Trump himself pointed out that he could a man on 5th Avenue and it wouldn’t hurt his popularity one bit. He is correct. Mere scandal will not do a thing to him. I have no idea why, but it’s true

Did you ever consider that killing that man on 5th Avenue just might Make America Great Again, Nyarl?

No?

That's one way to look at it. Another way is that those "Tea Party darlings" over-promised and under-delivered.

On the bright side, if Dems nominate another loser and we get 4 more years of Trump, maybe they'll wise up.

And propose nominating another Sanders or Ocasio-Ortez-Whatever-Flavor-of-the-Month?

Meanwhile, the Republicans and their supporters need to know that preferring Trump over a certifiable criminally hypocritical moonbat does not mean that translates into a preference for a Pence or Cruz or Jeb, et cetera.

Problem with extremes.
