CNN: Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama Administration in Power

CNN has lost its sanity.  Doing a report about assassinating Trump and Pence so Obama can stay in power?  Are they trying to encourage someone to take the president elect’s life during the inauguration?  This segment by Wolf Blitzer has no rhyme nor reason.  What are they thinking?  The wheels have come off of this news network.  It is time for America to pass judgment on a wholly discredited fake news organization.  MM

CNN: Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama Administration in Power

By Walter Todd Huston

As the nation prepares for the peaceful transfer of power on Inauguration Day, CNN is dreaming up scenarios whereby the Obama administration can keep power if President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence were blown up as they prepared to take to oath of office.

On the Wednesday, January 18 broadcast of CNN’s The Situation Room, host Wolf Blitzer aired a segment with a chyron featuring the headline “Developing Now.” During that “developing” segment, Blitzer and correspondent Brian Todd discussed what would happen if the unthinkable occurred on January 20.

Blitzer introduced the segment, saying, “What if an incoming president and his immediate successors were wiped out on day one?” and from there, CNN contributor Brian Todd took over to outline the line of succession if an attack blew up the inaugural dais, killing both Trump and Pence.


The upshot was that in the case of both heads of state being killed, the Secretary of State would take over. Currently that man is Secretary of State John Kerry, But in case some objected because his office would also end as of noon on Inauguration Day, then it would be the Speaker of the House — Republican Paul Ryan — or even Obama’s Under Secretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon.

The report also noted that the designated survivor appointed by the Obama administration could also become president in the case of a disaster. So, in CNN’s analysis, most of the people who would take over in the worst-case scenario would keep the Obama administration in power, at least indirectly.

So while most of the country is looking to enjoy the day’s events and waiting expectantly to hear what our new president will have to say for his first address as our leader, CNN is wondering what will happen if he is assassinated.

Perhaps CNN is still stuck in anger, the second stage of grief.

    1. Well, let’s think about that one, The Bible does say,”Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
      I don’t think CNN falls under this, so maybe it IS a sin to watch CNN!

    2. I started boycotting CNN during the campaign because of all the lies. If all Trump supporters stop watching CNN their ratings would drop significantly because Obama supporters don’t watch the news. There misinformation comes from the slander they post about Trump and what we share on our social media. That’s why I refuse to pass this information on. Prayer is in order.

  1. Just presenting that possibility , where most of the Clinton and Obama supporters would love that to happen , is a crime and CNN should be prosicuted.

  2. Choose your poison…
    CNN= Crazy News Network
    CNN= Crappy News Network
    CNN= Creepy News Network
    CNN= Cool-Aid News Network

  3. I believe Glenn Beck was suspended for a program that brought up an assassination attempt on obama. I was going to say “journalists”, but that doesn’t really apply to CNN, so media types or whatever have lost their jobs for less when democrats where in office.

  4. Go back to school…..CNN Kerry would not become President! Good Lord just further proof of uninvestigated reporting. What’s next for CNN? Supermarket Tabloids.

  5. I command that broadcast to fall to the ground and ROT … Never bearing fruit forever… Like the fig tree JESUS spoke to…

    ABORT!!! those words!!!

  6. Isn’t that a threat? Should they not be shut down? How desperate they are- how ignorant they are. The plug needs to be pulled on this network.

  7. I wonder what would have happened If Fox News would have given that news report: Assassinating Obama Could Keep Bush Administration in Power

  8. I believe that the succession of power after the president and vice president are unable to hold office is the speaker of the house Paul Ryan. Secretary of state is 4th in line.

  9. This is complete insanity-hopefully someone will prosecute! TRUMP WON, SHUT UP AND MOVE ON!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  10. Is it any wonder these people would not be welcomed? If deleted emails on one side and lack of tax return info on the other side aren’t okay ….. then how can something if this magnitude be mentioned, let alone published? I am over the fake news, fake pictures and fake and mean people. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you…. at all times! This country IS needing a big change, in more ways than one!
