Dumbass Tweet O’ Day

confused-gif-1492513036

The media has lost its mind.

Newsweek actually tweeted this:

No seriously:

The question I’m asking here is what should happen if Trump conspired with a foreign government to get elected? If he did that, then what should happen.

If that is shown, then the first step is obvious. Trump should resign or, if he doesn’t, he should be impeached.

The second step should be obvious as well: Pence should resign or, if he doesn’t, he should be impeached. He benefited from the criminal (and treasonous) conspiracy just as much as Trump. He shouldn’t benefit even more by becoming the residual President.

President Ryan would have the right to nominate a Vice-President. That right is specified in the 25th Amendment. That nominee then becomes Vice-President once confirmed by a majority of both houses. That’s how Gerald Ford became Vice President. And that’s how he eventually became President without ever running for that office.

If Ryan became President because the Trump/Pence campaign committed treason, who should he nominate as his Vice President? The answer seems unavoidable: He should nominate the person defeated by the treason of his own party, and then step aside, and let her become the President.

This is what passes as journalism.

  1. You know, this would be a moot discussion if Hillary clinton had made, like, ONE TRIP to Wisconsin or Michigan in October 2016.

    How the Russians managed to prevent her from doing so will probably remain a mystery forever.

  2. There is a post on Ace of Spades saying that Newsweek has been reduced to clickbait, and this balderdash is exhibit one.

    Also, some swampdweller douchemuffin on DailyKos posted this exact same scenario after the EC elector uprising didn’t pan out.

    It’s like they all share a brain cell…

    Except for GS-UMPTYGAZILLION twatwaffles. No evidence of a brain there.

  3. Didn’t the supreme court rule that even if Obama did fake his credentials it was a “too bad, so sad” after he got elected?

    Sucks when shitty decisions that support what you want come back to bite you in the ass, hub?
