There is the other argument, that everyone should let Trump torpedo himself and his administration with bad choices.

Possibly, that could be or have been the right answer, I have genuinely no way of knowing, but there are significant risks with it:

1) The nuclear codes.
2) How badly does he fuck over the nation while destroying himself?
3) Does the right realize that he's fucking over the nation and being horrible? If the goal is to get him into impeachment territory, if that doesn't happen because his followers like what he's doing then all we've accomplished is to fuck over the country and make his base love him more.
4) Minus somewhat moral and patriotic people in the government, can we trust that Trump won't do something more extreme like trying to claim power over Congress?
