I'm still expecting the DNC to kick Bernie to the curb before long. If that happens (again), will he finally go independent? Would he still try to get on the ballot as independent this year? Is that even possible? Would he try for 2024 as an independent?

Would it rip the Socialist following out from the Dem base as they follow Bernie? How much support does he really have, and how much of that goes with him if he's out of the Dem party?
Bernie doesn't have the balls to go independent. The DNC will screw him and he will roll out some platitudes and endorse Bloomberg or Buttigieg or whichever corporate weasel the Dems roll out, just like he did with Hillary. If Bernie went independent he would split the dem vote, like Ross Perot did for the Republicans in 92 and 96 which let Clinton in. Bernie slits the vote and Trump gets back in done deal.

If miraculously Bernie got nominated, the grass root support he has would campaign hard on the ground and he can damage Trump where it matters, if he drops out then the Dems will struggle.

Bloomberg comes with some unfortunate (read criminal) serious baggage, which isn't being focused on at the moment but it is a gift for Trump supporters.

I put a serious wager on Trump winning 2020 before impeachment, I would be happy if I lost because I don't think Trump ever acts in Americas interest, but the payout will help smooth the blow of years of additional Trumpian zionist corrupt bullshit and lies.
Trumps record of delivering anything is poor, but at this point barring a miracle he is getting back in.

to correct the record:
Trump did not remove US troops from Syria at all, the numbers of boots on the ground both regular and contractor has hugely increased under Trump, cowardly they abandoned the Kurds to the Turks and went south. Sooner or later the SAA will clear Idlib and Turkey will have its own problems, there is no way that the Russian air power isn't going to attack Turkish proxy ground forces if they continue to attack the Syrians. Real politik means that Erdogan is playing with only a few cards left. Russia is able to attack Turkish assets in Syria should they choose, NATO mutual defense treaty notwithstanding because Turkish territory is not under attack and is instead operating offensively inside someone else's country. The US has no legal right to be in Syria at all.
The Syrians will clear the Eastern oilfields pushing the US out.The US is going to find it more and more difficult to move troops back into Iraq. Leaving the surrounded Al Tanf as the last US base in Syria, Trump will have to remove US forces from there then or see them wiped out. So Trump if he is relected will remove the troops from Syria, he has no choice expect it to be spun differently but that is what will happen.

Everyone seems to be ignoring that super-racist shit he said.

Hypocrisy 101.

He got trounced, but I still think he has a shot at being nominated.

Do you have a problem with what he said about minority males and do you think that type of rhetoric should exclude him from the Presidency?

Yes, and his policies were just as bad as his rhetoric. I care more about the latter.
But I don’t think that will be a dealbreaker for the electorate. Polls are showing that the biggest concern on the left is electability, much moreso than previous elections.
Personally, if have to hold my nose and vote for Bloomberg at election time, I will.

In that case Trump's "racism" is not a reason for removing him from the White House.

Those Dem debates are playing out like some endless LSD thought loop: Bernie is the bright light fighting off demons by repeating the same mantras over and over, and shit is getting crazier every time

There is something about Bloombergs TV presence that is very Richard Nixon like.

Bernie playing the young strutting JFK..... maybe not.
