Trump Responds To News Pelosi Could Be POTUS During Crisis: “We must be very careful, crazy Nancy would be a total disaster”

John Solomon was one of the few in the media who got the Russian story, especially the FISA abuses portion of the scandal correct.

He was crucified for it and basically run out of a job. The media made publications go back and label his pieces “opinion” and trashed his reputation in other ways.

He was right and they were wrong yet he was still out a job? Funny how that works – we are literally shooting the messenger, ignoring the canary in the coal mine for partisan gain. So sad.

So he started a new publication and Trump responded to an article written about the line of succession if Trump and Pence get sick – Pelosi would be POTUS.
“Then we must be very careful. Crazy Nancy would be a total disaster, and the USA will never be a Communist Country!,” Trump tweeted.

From Justnews:

According to the Presidential Succession Act of 1947, the line of succession would go from President Trump to Vice President Mike Pence to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to Senate President Pro Tempore Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The Constitution states that “in Case of the Removal of the President from Office, or of his Death, Resignation, or Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the said Office, the Same shall devolve on the Vice President, and the Congress may by Law provide for the Case of Removal, Death, Resignation or Inability, both of the President and Vice President declaring what Officer shall then act as President, and such Officer shall act accordingly until the Disability be removed, or a President shall be elected.”

Congress has the authority under the Constitution to designate the government officials in the presidential line of succession. Congress amended the order of succession under President Harry S. Truman when it passed the Presidential Succession Act of 1947 designating the speaker of the House and Senate president pro tempore as the formal line of succession after the vice president.

Pence’s press secretary has tested positive for coronavirus and one of President Trump’s personal valets has tested positive. White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett said over the weekend that it’s “scary to go to work” at the White House right now.

A recent legal analysis spells out the “nightmare” scenario that COVID-19 could cause with the line of succession if the president and vice president somehow catch the virus.

“The 1947 statute says that in that circumstance, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ‘shall … act as President’ after resigning as a speaker and from Congress,” according to the analysis published by the Lawfare Institute in cooperation with the Brookings Institution.
