He'll show up, applaud politely, then quickly leave. That's supposed to be how it's always done. Of course, then he'll make a big deal about departing Washington.

The only way he doesn't show up is if he thinks that the first thing the new President will do after taking the oath is point to him and say, "Arrest that man!", which won't happen if for no other reason than the new President wouldn't want to deflect from the ceremony. What happens the minute Trump gets off of whatever plane took him out of Washington, however, is another story.

Agreed if the situation were simply rational - but this is Trumpworld.

Trump has shown a tendency to take the most outrageous path available. What's more outrageous than being evicted from the White House? His base would love it. He could push Limbaugh, Beck et al off the stage and become the #1 radio/TV political shock jock.
