The anti-abortion, anti-LGBTQ Louisiana lawyer wanted to overturn the 2020 election. Now he's second in the line of succession.
Just a Gym Jordan without the wrestling coach/ "I didn't see nuthin' " baggage...the *cough-cough* "moderates" fell into line, as they recognized that ONLY a tRumpy election denier could EVER be elected as Speaker in this Congress...as this is who they got. What an absolutely pathetic bit of shithousery.
“Truly disturbing news” indeed. Facts and reason underpin the rule of law. Neither seems to matter to Republicans in the House. The controlling faction of SCOTUS plays fast and loose with both. Heaven help us.
Thanks for getting right the line of succession to the presidency, Chris. I was shocked to see clips from a couple different network "stars" trying to explain how Mike Johnson was now "third in line of the presidency" after Kamala Harris and the president pro-tem of the Senate!
Some people shouldn't be allowed on tv.
His acceptance speech bodes ill:
God help us.
Thank you for bringing your readers the facts, Chris
This election denier violated his oath to the Constitution and tried to disenfranchise voters in four states.
He's MUCH worse than a lot of people seem to realize
So frightening! Good (and deeply disturbing) article in the New Yorker on the ADF - I highly recommend the article given this latest development in the house. Knowing someone personally that had the ADF come after them we all should be aware of their vision for America and realize they are well funded and well positioned to pursue their vision. Sorry I don't have a free link to share. But just search for New Yorker /ADF
