Oh God, they're going to try to impeach Biden and Harris and any other Democrat President when they are done with their terms, aren't they?

I'm pretty sure they submitted articles of impeachment against Obama at least a handful of times.

So yes. Yes, they will.

Dumbass. Trump doesn't have to run for anything. There is no Constitutional requirement for the Speaker to be a current member of the House. The Sedition Caucus can (and likely will) just vote him in.

Schrodinger's president: he's still president, but here's how he can be president again

Very unlikely to have the votes in the Senate, but if they did then this would totally work.

They know that there's no way America will vote for that failure to be President again, so finding a loophole is all they have left.

They're still going to run him in 2024 though.
And then claim he won no matter what the voters say.
 
2021-06-05 3:42:16 PM  
He won't run for the House. He can't handle not being King shiat all the time. Literally cannot handle not being in charge of everything. It's POTUS or nothing for him.

If they take the House, which is likely, Biden will be impeached that February. Guaranteed.

Also, you don't need to be a member of Congress to be Speaker, you dumb farking asshole.
 
2021-06-05 3:55:44 PM  
That plan actually has a slim chance of working so of course Trump won't do it.

shiat, they will impeach the first week in office. If the GOP retakes the Senate as well, they will reinterpret the 2/3 requirement and convict immediately.

The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

The Senate RULES require all members to be present for impeachment trials. The Constitution does NOT.

The Dems could not pull this stunt because the current Senate was gaveled in by McConnell before all the Dems were seated and rules could not be changed w/o 60 votes.

I'm no law talking guy but I think "criminal investigations" are done by the DOJ. The House has no such powers.

Whoops lost a whole sentence. Expect the GOP to lock the Dems out for the trial.

Didn't Qbert try that on Biden's first day?

No reason to stop now.

They are preventing any meaningful legislation from passing because the spineless Dems are all about "unity" or whatever Manchin and Sinema's problems are (get rid of them) and so they will get blamed for not passing infrastructure and other legislation. Rapepublicans will run on them accomplishing nothing, and they will retake Congress in 2022 with the help of their cheating.

Dotard was a test run, 2024 they will install their dictator, and we're all farked.

You can blame the "unity" morons and spineless pieces of shiat for our doom.

To be fair, I think every Congress tries this with every President at least a few times a year.  Usually they're just ignored by the Speaker.

But yeah, next time there's a GOP Congress with a Dem president, we can look forward to constant impeachment attempts for incredibly trivial/deliberately false charges.

I wonder if his margin of victory in 2024 will be greater than his margin of victory in 2020.

/ and now I've gone cross eyed!

Baselessly trying to remove the President of the United States should trigger a Federal investigation of the person who suggested it.

Perfect. Dotard can run, get his ass kicked, claim it was fixed, and watch that sweet sweet grifting money flow in.

That's the double secret re-instatement. He's been president all along.
 
2021-06-05 5:03:13 PM  
Fun fact - you don't have to be a sitting Congressman to be Speaker. They can elect whoever they want.

Actually, the constitution does not require you to live in the district that you represent. You only need to live in the state. So he could choose a solid red district and run there. District 1 might be looking for a new rep by then. (That's Gaetz's district.)

I'm somewhat tempted to tune in to Trump's speech to the North Carolina Republican Convention at 7PM this evening to see how deranged he is.

But nah, I'll leave that to the professional masochists and check the highlights later.

They will not elect DT - Kevin McCarthy is not waiting for anyone else. Nor will DT accept, because it's not POTUS.

This. He's never been around "co-workers". Being part of a group, and not king shiat is unthinkable to him.
 
2021-06-05 5:06:19 PM  
He can be Speaker without being a House member.

/shudders

Ah, it's actual work. He'll never do it.

Wayne Allyn Root sounds like a serial killer name.

Trumpist Autogolpe, American-style:

Trump runs for congress in 2022 and becomes Speaker of a GQP-controlled House.

Trump runs for President in 2024 without resigning his House seat.

Trump, as Speaker, refuses to count the electoral college votes for his presidential opponent, and certifies himself as winner of the electoral college vote.

Either the Senate agrees to accept the falsified electoral college results and installs Trump as President, or Congress deadlocks, refuses to accept the election, and Speaker Trump becomes President through the line of succession.
