It’s pretty shocking to see how childish and pathetic Democrats are behaving. More than a year has passed since the 2016 election and they still don’t get it. Donald Trump is president. That’s not going to change. He won by an electoral landslide. Get over it.
But there are still liberals in the media living in a fantasy world. They really believe that Trump is in the oval office illegitimately. The “Russian” scandal, to them, is fact. Never mind there hasn’t been a shred of evidence to prove it.
But, let’s just say they’re right. Maybe Trump did collude, and hard evidence is found, that’s step one. Then, step two, he would be impeached and removed from office. What happens next? Oh, Mike Pence would become President, that’s step three.
Hold your horses! One law professor claims that Mike Pence would not become President. Who would? You guessed it: the Wicked Witch, and that’s Newsweek’s step three.
From Daily Wire:
Apparently finally convinced that President Donald Trump isn’t going to a keel over from a massive heart attack, or suffering from a degenerative mental illness, Newsweek Magazine announced Thursday morning that there may still be hope, at least, that Hillary Clinton could become president if Trump is magically indicted in Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia probe…
Larry Lessig, who, in a tortured interpretation of the United States Constitution, suggests that any Republican who might take over in the line of succession would be remiss if he did not cede the Oval Office to the woman Trump defeated.
As there is “no mechanism in American law for a new election,” nor “a mechanism for correcting the criminal results of the previous election,” Ryan ought to nominate “the person defeated by the treason of his own party, and then step aside, and let her become President,” Lessig wrote.
Excuse me for a moment… LMAO!!!!

I’m not sure I have words for this kind of stupidity. Not in a million years would this happen. There is no way Mike Pence, or any Republican, would just step aside to give Hillary the White House.
Forgetting the fact this isn’t ancient Rome, and we don’t just give the office to whomever we chose.
There was an election, that gave the American people their say in who is our President. There is zero chance that Republicans would just throw that away to make Hillary—and angry liberals—happy.
Do they just give out law degrees now? Because I can’t see how Lessig can call himself a professor of law, while blatantly ignoring actual U.S. law. This will never happen. Hillary lost. She’s not coming back. No amount of wishful thinking will change that.
But at least, for a few seconds, liberals felt happy.
