CNN Reports That Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama in Power

WTF? 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.

    You know what, if I had anything to say about who the news organizations that was allowed in the White House I would never allow any of CNN’s reporters to ever be in the White House again. I am beginning to believe that there is something mentally wrong with Blitzer the insane expression on his face tells you a lot about his mental state. I can’t imagine what has happened to CNN over the years they didn’t start out that way they are as crazy as all of the other news organizations possibly worse because I doubt the other nutball news agencies would have pulled something like this!!

    CNN the “Clinton News Network” is irrelevant. We the People are on to CNN, WaPo and the New York Times. All media is bad including People, Cosmopolitan etc. The media cannot be trusted. Even the Europeans are waking up.

    I think an article like this, which is essentially making a request to their minions, should cause CNN and the offending reporter to be prosecuted.
