Wolf Blitzer of CNN and Brian Todd, CNN contributor, appeared desperate as they began opening discussing the assassination of incoming President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
The two masterminds discussed scenarios during CNN's Situation Room on Wednesday, where the Obama administration could remain in power "if the unthinkable happened on January 20." The host, Wolf Blitzer, began the "Developing News" part of the show by saying "what if an incoming President and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?"
CNN contributor Brian Todd then chimed in to discuss the line of succession if "an attack blew up the inaugural dais, killing both Trump and Pence." In that event, the Secretary of State would assume the leadership of this country. Currently, that would be John Kerry.
The conversation continued between the two that if this occurred after noon on Saturday January 20, 2017, Inauguration Day, then John Kerry would no longer be in office and the Presidential Office would most likely go to Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan or perhaps Obama's Undersecretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon. Or whoever the Obama administration had previously designated.
So, according to CNN, it's okay to speak publicly of assassinating an incoming President and Vice President, down to the details? This comes off like a total "how-to" guide to assassinating President-Elect Trump in a way that keeps the Obama administration in power.It seems like CNN is a little cranky about Donald Trump calling their network terrible, refusing to speak with their reporters, and calling them out for their fake news.
America has spoken. The people have spoken. While the nation is in transition, and a celebration is occurring in Washington, DC, CNN is openly salivating at the thought of somebody assassinating the president.
