Trump is impeached. Who do you choose?

According to Wikipedia (the source of all knowledge) this is the list of his successors. Who would you choose, assuming those above your choice all flew on Air Force 1 to visit Putin and died in a horrible plane crash? They are all idiots to be sure. I am nowhere near as politically knowledgable as some of you but I would be tempted to pick Jeff Sessions just because he is hanging in there under enormous pressure from the orange one. Maybe he has a small sense of morality.

The one with the ketchup for orangy's Mcdonald's burger? I don't know but probably a good choice.

If the Democrats do as well as expected in the November elections, then option 2 will presumably become Nancy Pelosi (or whoever takes the job she's hoping to get).

Thanks for the uplifting thought! As far as democrats in the senate goes, I'm no big fan of Nancy Pelosi, but she would be a huge relief from the orange one. What a thought.

I'd absolutely have to go with Elaine Chao.


I'm sure, as a Republican Trump pick, she's probably just as bad as her peers... all incompetent cronies appointed to dismantle their area of government so that there's less tax burden on the rich.

But seeing not just a Chinese-American, but a WOMAN in the white house would significantly shrink the republican base when a hell of a lot of fat old white privileged men's heads explode, or hearts fail due to unsustainable outrage and mania.

Hmm, if those are only choices I would pick Mattis .... mostly because I can not think of a reason he would be terrible offhand.

-sigh- It's not exactly a good choice no matter how it rolls. Since this clown show started, I've given up on good choices. All we can do is start with Trump, and keep working down the list until someone who still has a soul is found or new elections offer a chance at something besides lesser evils.

Pence is not a lesser evil. He would be far worse than assTrumpet.

Exactly! I consider people saying impeachment is the total answer to be saying so from a place of extreme privilege. Penis (and indeed most of the administration) would be worse. The rest would also be bad, it is just a matter of ranking how bad each one is.

Donnie is an oaf who does not know how politics works. While this means he does things no recent president would have done it also means he can be easily distracted by placating his ego.

Penis *DOES* know how politics works. He would not propose uber-evil things that have a 0 percent chance of passing .... he would propose evil things that would pass. Then do it again and again, he would also not do the 'this is hard' thing but instead keep on an issue until congress passed it.

seriously... SESSIONS? the one responsible for tearing immigrant children away from their parents and STILL is responsible for over 500 not reunited which had to be court ordered because HIS ideas of racist homeland security did not include the remote possibility that people would have their children returned to them whether or not they got to stay in this country? Not to mention his blatant attempts to stop black people from organizing to vote in Alabama and how he had to be tossed off a couple benches there? Seriously?

OK, I don't keep up with the news sometimes. I take it back.

I'm from Indiana, and I'm sure as hell not going to argue that Pence is anything besides a flaming sack of dominionist dogshit. I'd prefer he went down either with Trump, or at worst a few months after Trump. The issue is simply that we can't just decide to put up with another 6 years of Trump just because the next person in line is also a horrific disaster in waiting. You axe the first one, then the second one, then the third one, then the fourth, and so on until you get somewhere.


There's no fast and happy solution. My position is simply that sticking with the evil we know is not acceptable.

You seem to have overlooked that fact that once Pence is in the Oval Office, it will take more than an act of Congress to get rid of him. Not only would we be stuck with him for the next 10 years, during the two years before the 2020 election time he would make damn sure the term limits are abolished immediately after he is elected.

I refuse to spend my remaining years on this earth under the thumb of organized religion and religious zealots.

Fuck. That.

You'd have to find a way to keep impeaching until you hit Mattis, for me. Unfortunately you could probably realistically end up stopping at Hatch or Pompeo.
