Assassination Chic: CNN Fantasizes About Trump And Pence Being Killed To Keep Obama Admin Around

During most of George W. Bush’s two terms, there was a constant fantasy about him being assassinated, especially starting around the time of the 2004 general election. Michelle Malkin did a great job in highlighting this through the years, and noted the big return back in November aimed at Trump. Now we get this

(Breitbart) As the nation prepares for the peaceful transfer of power on Inauguration Day, CNN is dreaming up scenarios whereby the Obama administration can keep power if President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence were blown up as they prepared to take to oath of office.

On the Wednesday, January 18 broadcast of CNN’s The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer aired a segment with a chyron featuring the headline “Developing Now.” During that “developing” segment, Blitzer and correspondent Brian Todd discussed what would happen if the unthinkable occurred on January 20.

Blitzer introduced the segment, saying, “What if an incoming president and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?” and from there, CNN contributor Brian Todd took over to outline the line of succession if an attack blew up the inaugural dais, killing both Trump and Pence.

Seriously, can you imagine if Fox News ran something like this in 2008? This degenerated into a fantasy of how Team Obama could be kept around if this happened before both Trump and Pence could be sworn in, coming to the conclusion that Team Obama would be able to hang around running things, at least for the time being. Obama and Biden would be gone, but, the lower ranking degenerates would keep power, with possibly one of the current cabinet members being installed as POTUS.

    They aren’t fantasizing, they’re hoping.

  2. Dana says:

    If we assumed that the assassinations took place during the inauguration itself, killing the incoming and outgoing Presidents and Vice Presidents, and the Speaker of the House and President Pro Tempore of the Senate, the next person in line would be Secretary of State John Kerry, who won’t be there, and whose resignation may not have been tendered yet.

    Hey, there’s that guy who doesn’t attend the ceremony just in case thls scenario should occur.
    Hope it ain’t Lewis or Maxine…

    If the white nationalists, for all their planning and firepower, didn’t assassinate President Obama, it’s unlikely any anarchists will blow up trump and Gov Pence.

    It’s an interesting Constitutional thought experiment to map out the line of succession if the duly elected President and Vice-President died just before their inauguration. Congressman Ryan, perhaps?

    Yeah, but you can dream, clueless little one, right?

    And if this occurred on a conservative channel or website, you’d be apoplectic and want the FBI to arrest that person.

    Jeffrey must’ve missed my previous comment:

    The Speaker of the House is next in line, after the Vice President, followed by the President pro Tempore of the Senate, currently Orrin Hatch (R-UT). After that, the line of presidential succession falls to the cabinet officers, in order of the establishment of their positions: State, Treasury, Defense and Justice. Here’s the complete list.

    Since Donald Trump is not yet President, he really hasn’t appointed anyone to the cabinet positions, so those offices would be held by Democrats until they are replaced. In practice, the cabinet officers resign, and an acting secretary is appointed from those remaining until the new nominees are confirmed. In theory, if there was a mass assassination during the inaugural ceremony, John Kerry could become the president for the next four years.

  8. Dana says:

    Of course, the best news is that, no many how many got assassinated, Hillary Clinton would never become President!

    Teach:

    It appears you didn’t watch/listen to the original piece but relied solely on the alt-right site, Breitbart.

    You should watch/listen to the original.

  10. gitarcarver says:

    Well Jeffery, I watched and listened to the original and saw it to be a report on the line of succession if Trump and Pence were killed.

    That is what Teach wrote about.

    Apparently you didn’t watch the video yourself.
