Are they really this stupid or is this intentional? Is it just more wishful thinking, or is it just the usual propaganda? CNN is trying to tell us that should Trump be assassinated or die, or becomes incapacitated before the inauguration a “designated presidential successor” will take power and since none of Trump’s cabinet secretaries will have been confirmed by then, an Obama selected secretary would be sworn in, hat-tip Infowars.com. Of course their hypothesis is that all those in the normal line of succession are killed at the same time as the President-Elect. It’s still preposterous and may even incite violence from the whacky left.
The very first sentence of Amendment XX, Section 3. reads:
“If, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term of the President, the President elect shall have died, the Vice President elect shall become President.”
So you can see that CNN’s theory that someone from the prior administration would take power is pure hogwash, but you’d have to look at the Constitution (the 20th Amendment to be exact) to prove it to these airheads, and we know the Constitution is an anathema to the lyin’ libs.
