Breitbart -- On Friday President-Elect Donald Trump is going to become President Donald Trump. Consumer confidence, small-business optimism, and other economic indicators are the highest they have been in years.
Since the election, the peaceful transfer of power that was promised from the left has been anything except for peaceful. Now CNN is dreaming up doomsday scenarios that would keep a member of the Obama administration in power.
As the nation prepares for the peaceful transfer of power on Inauguration Day, CNN is dreaming up scenarios whereby the Obama administration can keep power if President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence were blown up as they prepared to take to oath of office.
On the Wednesday, January 18 broadcast of CNN’s The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer aired a segment with a chyron featuring the headline “Developing Now.” During that “developing” segment, Blitzer and correspondent Brian Todd discussed what would happen if the unthinkable occurred on January 20.
Blitzer introduced the segment, saying, “What if an incoming president and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?” and from there, CNN contributor Brian Todd took over to outline the line of succession if an attack blew up the inaugural dais, killing both Trump and Pence.
The upshot was that in the case of both heads of state being killed, the Secretary of State would take over. Currently that man is Secretary of State John Kerry, But in case some objected because his office would also end as of noon on Inauguration Day, then it would be the Speaker of the House — Republican Paul Ryan — or even Obama’s Under Secretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon.
The report also noted that the designated survivor appointed by the Obama administration could also become president in the case of a disaster. So, in CNN’s analysis, most of the people who would take over in the worst-case scenario would keep the Obama administration in power, at least indirectly.
So while most of the country is looking to enjoy the day’s events and waiting expectantly to hear what our new president will have to say for his first address as our leader, CNN is wondering what will happen if he is assassinated.
Perhaps CNN is still stuck in anger, the second stage of grief.
Blog Author's Comments -- CNN now has gone from fake news to dangerous news. It sounds to me like CNN is "inciting" violence in order to get what they want, the Democrats back in power. I hope their TV ratings go farther down the toilet than they already are. This is totally irresponsible to air this now. This could easily be considered an incitement to commit violence against the President and Vice-President. The FCC should take them off the air. Given that will most likely not happen, Trump needs to pull White House press credentials for every CNN journalist/reporter.
They must not get away with this. They really are attempting to push some crazed liberal loon into doing what they would like to see happen. And the loons are all that believe the bullshit they spread on a daily basis. This feeds the flame of the lunatics under the guise of news. CNN is totally anti-American and full of miserable, sick people. They will get bolder and bolder in their efforts to undermine our country until someone in power puts a stop to it. This is uncalled for and dangerous.
