Could House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., become president if there is no election result by January?
Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano told “Varney & Co.” on Thursday whether Pelosi would automatically assume the role of acting president if the 2020 election is delayed.
“It might be right,” Napolitano told host Stuart Varney. “President Trump’s term ends at precisely noon on Jan. 20, 2021. If the Electoral College has not yet named a successor, presumably either Donald Trump or Joe Biden, then whoever is the speaker of the House would become the acting president of the United States.”
More reason to vote Republicans into control of the House of Representatives. Republicans are not perfect; but they don’t wish to fund rioters, confiscate guns, impose a permanent COVID tyranny or tax us into Communist oblivion. President Trump needs a blowout victory, including a takeover of Congress. If he doesn’t get it, we will find ourselves in a Civil War II that makes the prospect of a President Pelosi the least of our problems.
