At this point, the left’s inability to accept the results of the 2016 election no longer looks like sour grapes. It now looks like mental illness. They just can’t accept reality. Some people are even still trying to figure out how to nullify the election and install Hillary as president.
HOW HILLARY CLINTON STILL CAN, AND SHOULD, BECOME PRESIDENT AFTER THE TRUMP-RUSSIA INVESTIGATION
Sure, it’s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there’s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president.
And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again.
Harvard University professor Lawrence Lessig offered a Clinton path to the presidency on Medium, putting forward a series of “if/then” scenarios that lead to House Speaker Paul Ryan handing the White House keys to Clinton.
Here’s how constitutional law expert Lessig lays it out:
If number 1: If Trump is definitively found to have colluded directly with Russia, he would be forced to resign or be impeached.
If number 2: If Trump is removed, Vice President Mike Pence would become president.
If number 3: If Pence becomes president, he should resign too, given that he benefited from the same help from Mother Russia.
If number 4: If Pence resigns before appointing a vice president, Ryan would become president.
If number 5: If Ryan becomes president, he should do the right thing and choose Clinton for vice president. Then he should resign.
These people are insane. None of this is ever going to happen. And there would be another civil war if it did.
