As stupid as Trump is, he's street smart enough like a mafia Don to insulate himself.

A perfect example of cognitive dissonance!  (You're in good company!)

Well, he can't be very smart if he's got the house, the senate, and the presidency, and hasn't been able to pass one piece of legislation in 10 months.  All the while destroying his own cabinet and staff, lying day after day, putting his entire party into chaos, laying waste to the country's fabric, and hiring the very guy now investigating him and arresting his friends...after firing the guy before.  Liberal Hollywood could not have written a more stupefying script!  Cheers!

An imaginative movie script it is, and you are correct:  a stupefying one!  And so many people are having similar hallucinations.  Where did this one come from?

As stupid as Trump is...he STILL managed to beat Hillary with all of her support from the media, money, and everything else...

Maybe so.  But screwing all those who 'helped' you along the way isn't going to engender any loyalty from these guys or others.  My guess is that eventually a few of these dudes will turn on him to save their own skins. 

I dont think any of these older guys will want to do jail time, or pay bankruptcy level fines, to shield Trump.   His own party wants to see him thrown to the wolves as soon as they can, and may not tolerate any presidential pardons.  He doesn't have any allies left.  Chris Christie maybe, but thats hardly a consolation.

That's what will undo him eventually. He requires total loyalty, even to the point of claiming the sky is green and 2+2=5 (yes, his inauguration crowd was millions of people, the biggest ever!), but he has no loyalty for his people as soon as they aren't useful to him anymore. Almost everyone who was close to him except direct family has been dumped, or is even now getting attacked on Twitter.

Again, we just see a dead man walking - relying on the rules for rulers.

According to the pundits this is the best it gets for the republicans; 2018 is supposedly looking like a disaster, with 2019 and beyond even worse. Impeachment takes a long time, and the results are uncertain. However should the chump become a martyr? an awful lot of problems drop away; & the man has already prepared the ground by releasing the JFK files. The liability becomes an asset, the twitter feed finally goes silent, the 'family' establishes a lock on rulership. And 5 years on, maybe the first FEMALE US President ends up being a Trump?   

Enron, became Enron - in part because Ken Lay (Chairman) knew he was dying. When Enron finally blew he would either be gone, or close to it; others would be taking the fall, and he wouldn't be explaining anything. One has to wonder whether a version of the same thing isn't happening here - as almost all Dons know they will not be shuffling off as a result of old age.

Sadly it's also America, and this kind of solution has a long history.

Hard to imagine that anyone listens to "the pundits" after what happened in the last election . . .
The key question:  What is the "inefficient rationale" - the reason the market is mispricing the stock.  Why doesn't the powerful force of the wisdom of the crowd manifest here to produce the correct price?

I just can't wait when Mueller finishes his (not Trump related) investigation. Guess what's next?
