Yeah, I saw this earlier today.

Makes me wonder less why Pres Trump seems to be all-but-focusing on keeping the virus crisis going.

Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and a senior White House adviser, refused Tuesday to rule out postponing the presidential election in November

Posted by gracieamazed

People have been anticipating something like this for 3.5 YEARS.

As long as Biden leads Trump in the polls, Donald has no incentive to ever having another election take place.

Why'd you post this, GRACIE? Is it something you want?

The presumptive Democratic nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden, gave voice to those concerns at a virtual fundraiser last month. "Mark my words, I think he is going to try to kick back the election somehow " come up with some rationale why it can't be held,"

Gracie is a Trumpublican.

She doesn't care how Trump wins in November.

She just wants him to win.

If there is no election does Nancy Pelosi take over in January since donald and Pence will be out of office?

The leader of the house based on 2020 elections would become POTUS.

Yes, Trump and Pence's term is officially up Jan 20, 2021 at noon.
The only way they get to stay past that is to win re-election.

If there is no election the speaker of the house (Pelosi) becomes the president.

So referring to my previous post, there will be an election, and there isn't a thing Benedict Donald of his femme Son-in-law can do about it.

How does that work? I thought should Trump and Pence not be reelected, even without an election, Pelosi becomes POTUS.

VP Jared floated this trial balloon to see if anyone saluted (metaphor mix).

They will do this a few times and say no, just to tire out the population, then they will actually do it. They are opening the country to make it worse. The liberals will complain. Then they will postpone the election and say the libs asked for it.

For Trump and Pence to stay in power post January 20, 2021, wouldn't there have to be a constitutional amendment?

Trump lives by his own set of rules and enough people in power support him for him to continue to be able to do so.

I doubt Trump will willingly give up being the POTUS.

I think Jared needs those strings holding his mask on replaced with duct tape, to be sure it doesn't fall off. Only to keep him safe of course.

#1 - Trump/Putin knows now, they will lose the election. So, what better way to leave a total mess for Joe Biden than an intentionally badly mis-managed national emergency-in-progress pandemic and a trashed economy? MAGA

Some clarifications

Speaker Pelosi would NOT become POTUS if there were no election. No elections, mean no Representatives, meaning she is no longer Speaker. Representatives term ends 1st week of January

I believe in that case that a senator (can't remember his title) becomes POTUS, which given the make up of the Senate would mean Republican
BUT
Several Senators terms run out 1st week of January
SO
you have to consider NEW make up of Senate-meaning Democrat if NO elections are held
BUT
States dictate their own elections
SO
Some states may hold elections allowing, Possibly, their Representatives and Senators to take office 1st week of January

SO bottom line, it is impossible to speculate accurately who would become president.

Leaving you with a constitutional crisis

BUT

Possession is 9/10ths of the law, so to speak. Meaning someone will have to STOP or REMOVE the current infestation of the WH.

Who would that be? DC police? Secret Service? the army? the DoJ? Capitol police? Capitol sgt at arms?

President Zero is not afraid of precedent.

Republicans have shown ZERO intent on stopping him

Many many many nations/governments/societies have fallen under these conditions.

At least the Supreme Court would still be functioning and we all know we can depend on them to rule honestly, patriotically, and fairly. Hahahahahahahahahaha!

I laugh but I don't think it is funny, our nation is in the saddest state that it has been during any of our lives.

I hope these numbskulls aren't corrupt enough to try to postpone or cancel the election. There would be an uprising if they do.

There wont be an uprising.

There wasn't one when the Republicans stole an election.

There wasn't one when the Republicans stole a SC justice

There wasn't one when President Zero colluded with Russia

There wasn't one when President Zero blackmailed Ukraine.

There wasn't one when President Zero was found not guilty in his impeachment trial.

You underestimate the American people's willingness to be ass ------.

Isn't she Speaker until the mid-terms in 2022?

The only way to get Trump's family out of the White House will be a military escort.

Donald Trump is setting it up to arrest Barrack Obama and/or Joe Biden.

That would be a part of that coup predicted for 3.5 years.

I don't know if there will be un "uprising", unless that's what you call a gathering of 100,000 citizens between them and whatever goons Trump sends to get them.

Actually, if the Federal Election is cancelled, California could hold a special election in Pelosi's district to appoint her due to the vacancy.

Because it sure as hell doesn't happen in America.
