    Or you could at least try not to be so petty. That works to.

    Then again, You're here still crying about being called out. So I see that my hopes for you are practically all in vain.
    LOl You mentioned the word "integrity"? None of you cultists have a right to use that word ever again. I mean NEVER.

    Yep, it's how left wingers find a way to pay off another left winger for doing what they approve of.
    When the debate is lost, the loser resorts to slander.

    President Pelosi boys, you ready for that?
    <SARC>[You are overlooking the possibility that Mr. Trump will issue an EO (based on his PF) that changes the name of the month from "January" (after all, the month is named after a God, and there has to be a strict separation between church and state) to "Don" (after all, August is named after a real person whose name was shortened from "Augustus" to "August").

    After all, there are already two months named after females ("May" and "April") so it is only appropriate, in the spirit of equality, that there also be two months named after males ("Don" and "August").

    That would mean that, since there was no "January 20" in 2021 (or afterwards) Mr. Trump's term of office would never expire.

    Think of how much money the US would save by not having to have those very expensive presidential elections</SARC>[.

    Actually there is no set term of office for the "Speaker of the House of Representatives". There is no legal requirement that the "Speaker of the House of Representatives" even be a member of the House of Representatives. There is also no legal requirement that the "Speaker of the House of Representatives" be 35 or more years old. There is also no legal requirement that the "Speaker of the House of Representatives" be a "natural born citizen" of the United States of America. In fact, there is also no legal requirement that the "Speaker of the House of Representatives" fulfill ANY of the legal requirements for being an elected member of the government of the United States of America.

    That means that (to give an incredibly silly example) IF Vladimir Putin were elected to the position of "Speaker of the House of Representatives" and the Presidential office and Vice-Presidential office both became vacant simultaneously, THEN Vladimir Putin would become the President of the United States of America.

    Although, the Presidential Succession Act creates a really uncomfortable situation here: the successor remains president until a president is elected. If we're not doing elections anymore...
    See above.

    See above.
    The Presidential Succession Act is clear that if the Speaker doesn't qualify to be president then he/she gets skipped over and it goes to the next official on the list (President pro tempore of the Senate). If AOC were speaker, she'd get skipped because she's not 35. If Putin were somehow elected Speaker, he'd get skipped because he's not a natural born citizen who's been a resident for 14 years.

    So spare me your jaw jacking.
    Man you got super defensive real quick. What's the matter, can't find a way to defend Trump's stupid actions this time so you just need to lash out anyone who questions the Dear Leader?
