How Hillary Clinton Still Can, and Should, Become President After the Trump-Russia Investigation

Okay, before we get to the actual method by which Hillary will become president (snicker) please allow me to editorialize for just a moment…

People, this is Donald Trump we’re talking about here. A very famous, very famously unpleasant individual with a massive negative publicity trail going back longer even than Hillary’s. You’ve been trying to get him on Russian collusion all year and only succeed in beclowning yourselves over and over. Surely by now Trump must be the most investigated individual in human history, and that’s the best you’ve got? Mythical Russians and one p*ssy-grabbing remark? My only possible conclusion is that Trump must have been a closet saint all those decades, and was only pretending to be a vulgar immoral oaf like unto a particularly uncivilized baboon. Maybe I should start supporting him?

Be that as it may. Sit down, remove all spewable liquids from your vicinity and get a load of this.

Here’s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays [the impending Hillary Clinton presidency] out:

If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or be impeached.

If number 2: If Trump is removed, Vice President Mike Pence would become president.

If number 3: If Pence becomes president, he should resign too, given that he benefited from the same help from Mother Russia.

If number 4: If Pence resigns before appointing a vice president, Ryan would become president.

If number 5: If Ryan becomes president, he should do the right thing and choose Clinton for vice president. Then he should resign.

“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,” Lessig writes. “Without doubt, if Ryan did the right thing, that would be the most extraordinary event in the history of America since the Confederate Army fired on Fort Sumter. But unlike that, this event would build the union, not divide it.”

Yup. That’ll work.


*Okay. I can actually think of a couple other, even more sincere belly laughs. But those were due to intensely personal experiences not shared on a frickin’ blog. Get off my lawn.

    I agree this whole business is whack-a-zoid crazy (and coming from a “respectable” scholar, even moreso).

    But craziest of all is Lessig’s contention that “this event would build the union, not divide it.”

    Maybe it would help build the “the union NYC boroughs” or “the union of all the SJWs in the country.” But can you see it building the union between, say, Washington, DC, and the State of Jefferson? Massachusetts and the high deserts of Arizona and New Mexico? Trump supporters and Hillary supremacists?

    Yup. Belly laugh indeed.

  2. Kentucky says:

    One can only hope Lessig is attempting satire as a way of feeling out the electorate, or possibly auditioning for SNL.

    If he’s serious about this, he needs immediate psychiatric treatment.

  3. Judy says:

    Whatever Lessig has been smoking, snorting, chewing or shooting I’m pretty sure I don’t want any.

  4. Every cycle it just gets worse. I think Charles Krauthammer coined the term “Bush Derangement Syndrome,” but the Progs/MSM have gone just blatantly, completely unhinged. Seems like it’s getting to the point where even low-info folks are getting disgusted with the MSM and realize that,like politicians, if their lips are moving they must be lying. Fun, fun, fun.

    Cheers

    I swear the NPR newsreaders need better meds. I used to enjoy a little NPR but now all they can do all day is hate Trump and want him dead.

To the stake with the heretic!
