Trump should be excluded from office but he won't be

I think it's pretty clear that Trump should be disqualified from running for President under Section 3 of the Fourteenth Amendment. I mean, if some obscure wacko is legally barred from being Otero County Commissioner in New Mexico because he participated in the January 6th Insurrection, then surely the instigator of that insurrection should be held to the same standard.

But I am just as sure that Trump will not actually be barred from the ballot in any state. People will try (and they should!) but I'm just to cynical to think that it will work. Even if some court rules against him, the Supreme Court will bail him out. That's the kind of Justice that Harlan Crow pays for!
