CNN Teases Assassination of Trump for Obama Appointment to Oval Office

CNN has been criticized for airing a report which revealed that an Obama appointee would become president if Donald Trump was killed during an attack on the inauguration tomorrow.

Entitled Disaster could put Obama cabinet member in Oval Office, the report admits that there is no specific threat targeting the inauguration, but goes on to speculate about “who would be in charge if an attack hit the incoming president….just as the transfer of power is underway”.

An individual named the “designated presidential successor” will not attend the inauguration as a security precaution, “but it won’t be a Trump cabinet secretary….it will be an Obama appointee,” reports CNN.

The report emphasizes that “a president from the prior administration” will take power if there is an attack due to the fact that none of Trump’s cabinet secretaries have been confirmed yet.

According to CNN, the designated presidential successor is likely to be Tom Shannon, the Under Secretary For Political Affairs, and an Obama appointee.

    CNN is not only unprofessional but completely ignorant of anything but OPINION, specifically their own. I imagine such an unprecedented event would probably lead to the inauguration of the NEXT in line elected official…the duly elected Vice President (that would be the logical act). If they’re going to be ridiculous, then the Constitutionally mandated next choice would be the Speaker of the House, who is, actually, at least almost a Republican.

    I think the FBI needs to arrest George Soros & Michael Moore immediately.
    Over 260 were arrested last night in WDC and charged with RIOTING!!!! Not unlawful protest or anything tame but RIOTING. Note the different flavor in just one day? If it had happened on the 19th some Liberal Cop would (and prolly will) say they’re really just kids, altho they are young adults and kids make bad decisions… and you know the rest of the Liberal Drivel.
    Hey! That kinda rhymes. Liberal Drivel! lol.

    I do believe Rioting carries a stiffer penalty than Unlawful Protest, Disturbing the Peace, or Destruction of Private/Public property.
    Considering how Michael Moore has openly called for exactly this, while paying and providing the means, to me this seems like Inciting to Riot.
    Whoo I bet some of them Good Ol’ Boys in the Pen would “love” to see his big soft behind in there with them.

    Not sure what they think Starbuck’s had to do with the Inauguration Or the bank nearby (Can’t remember name), but they DID manage to trash the rental SUV of Larry King while he was in the studio. Those repair Bills, plus every other ADDED expense, like the On-Duty Marine’s (1000), all the extra police. Basically any expense added to the day that was caused by these Spoiled Children, need to be sent straight to Michael Moore and he be MADE to pay or take his FAT ARSE to prison. I’m sure if you totaled up all of that you would find it’s in excess of $1m.

    It’s time we put a stop to all the BS and get on with Life. These Children are so indoctrinated by the State Press that they think there is nothing wrong with their actions. I bet some are even expecting to get a Participation Trophy when they get home.

    Why did they not mention this in 2009? Could it have been that a candidate they personally endorsed won and not one they had given up for dead before the primaries won the election? Would this had been considered “racist” had they mentioned it about Obama? Or does it just show the level of hate that the left is continuing to show towards this man and his administration, even before it starts?

    The succession is set in the Constitution. If both Trump and Pence were killed, Paul Ryan would be President.

    CNN (as usual) is full of schitte.

      Uhh, the CNN report is factually correct. Paul Ryan is a e/GOP RINO and has completely supported Obama’s agenda.

      Paul Ryan Betrays America: $1.1 Trillion, 2,000-Plus Page Omnibus Bill Funds ‘Fundamental Transformation of America’

      by STEPHEN K. BANNON & JULIA HAHN -16 Dec 2015

      Paul Ryan’s first major legislative achievement is a total and complete sell-out of the American people masquerading as an appropriations bill.

      (1) Ryan’s Omnibus Fully Funds DACA
      (2) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds Sanctuary Cities
      (3) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds All Refugee Programs
      (4) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds All of the Mideast Immigration Programs That Have Been Exploited by Terrorists in Recent Years
      (5) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds Illegal Alien Resettlement
      (6) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds the Release of Criminal Aliens
      (7) Ryan’s Omnibus Quadruples H-2B Foreign Worker Visas
      (8) Ryan’s Omnibus Funds Tax Credits for Illegal Aliens
      (9) Ryan’s Omnibus Locks-In Huge Spending Increases
      (10) Ryan’s Omnibus Fails to Allocate Funds to Complete the 700-Mile Double-Layer Border Fence That Congress Promised the American People

      Ryan’s omnibus serves a second and equally chilling purpose. By locking in the President’s refugee, immigration, and spending priorities, Ryan’s bill is designed to keep these fights out of Congress by getting them off the table for good.

      Delivering Obama these wins–and pushing these issues beyond the purview of Congress–will suppress public attention to the issues and, in so doing, will boost the candidacy of the Republican establishment’s preferred presidential contenders, who favor President Obama’s immigration agenda.

      >>> The Paul Ryan leadership is 100% complicit in enabling Obama’s treasonous agenda!

        “Uhh, the CNN report is factually correct.”

        Uhh, bullschitte.

        CNN has been criticized for airing a report which revealed that an Obama appointee would become president if Donald Trump was killed during an attack on the inauguration tomorrow.

        Entitled Disaster could put Obama cabinet member in Oval Office…

        Ryan is not a cabinet member and is not an Obozo appointee.

        1. CharlieSeattle says:

          Uhh, the CNN report is factually correct. Paul Ryan is a e/GOP RINO and has completely supported Obama’s agenda.

          My post proved it.

          Ergo, Speaker Of The House, Paul Ryan is a stealth Democrat.

          1. NM Leon says:

            You keep digging your hole deeper.

            Ryan may be a RINO (stealth Democrat if you will), but he is neither a cabinet member or an Obozo appointee, therefore your post is bullschitte.

            The line of succession is President, Vice President, Speaker of the House, then President pro tem of the Senate, followed by the cabinet Secretaries in the order their departments were created (State, Treasury, Defense, DOJ, etc)

          2. CharlieSeattle says:

            DuMbMaSs………Paul Ryan IS Speaker Of The House!

          3. NM Leon says:

            You really ought to get a grip. The CNN story is bullschitte, and your post is bullschitte.

            My “silly… ‘next line of succession BS’ ” was to point out that your claimed line of succession, “in the event of the removal, resignation, death, or inability of both the President and Vice President, the President pro tempore of the United States Senate was next in line of succession after the Vice President, followed by the Speaker of the House of Representatives.”, was also bullschitte.

            Give it up Charlie, just walk away. Digging your hole deeper makes a simple mistake look like idiocy.
