Roger Stone unveils a doozy of a plan to install Donald Trump as president
Longtime right-wing political henchman Roger Stone on Thursday revealed his new plan to install Donald Trump into the presidency. Speaking to the Republican Accountability Project, Stone shared his blueprint for, as he sees it, rectifying the crime of Trump's defeat to President Joe Biden in the 2020 election.
The three-point plan goes as follows:
First, Stone expects the House of Representatives to elect Trump as its Speaker if they retake control of the lower congressional chamber in this year's midterm elections. This is permitted in the United States Constitution. Literally, anybody whom a majority of the House chooses can hold the gavel as long as they meet the basic qualifications for getting elected, which in the House is any citizen 25 years of age and up.
Next, Stone predicts that Biden's Cabinet will invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office. Over what, he did not say.
In the final stage, according to Stone, Congress will impeach and remove Vice President Kamala Harris for refusing to promote ivermectin, a deworming medication used in horses, as an effective treatment against COVID-19. It is not.
At that point, with Biden and Harris out of office, Trump would ascend to the presidency via the line of succession.
Roger Stone has a plan to install Trump as POTUS: After GOP takes the House, make Trump Speaker. Then wait for Biden\u2019s Cabinet to remove him from office via the 25th Amendment. Then impeach Kamala Harris for denying the effectiveness of Ivermectin. Then make Trump POTUS.

Twitter had some questions.
Not endorsing a med and pushing a vaccine are not impeachable offences.— \ud83c\udde8\ud83c\udde6#1bestcountry\ud83c\udde8\ud83c\udde6 (@\ud83c\udde8\ud83c\udde6#1bestcountry\ud83c\udde8\ud83c\udde6) 1647545241
Which? That they can\u2019t impeach for that or they think they can impeach for that?— \ud83c\udde8\ud83c\udde6#1bestcountry\ud83c\udde8\ud83c\udde6 (@\ud83c\udde8\ud83c\udde6#1bestcountry\ud83c\udde8\ud83c\udde6) 1647551322
Why do I get this absolute garbage in my Tweet feed?— Brian D. Lerner (@Brian D. Lerner) 1647551790
Didn\u2019t the makers of Ivermectin deny its effectiveness for Covid? So that would be an impeachable offense?— Trumpload Dig (@Trumpload Dig) 1647557214
And who in Biden's cabinet would go along with this? Also, does VP go along with this for the 25th in his head here?— \ud83c\udd82\ud83c\udd83\ud83c\udd78\ud83c\udd7d\ud83c\udd70 \ud83c\udd7b\ud83c\udd88\ud83c\udd7d\ud83c\udd7d \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8 \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6 (@\ud83c\udd82\ud83c\udd83\ud83c\udd78\ud83c\udd7d\ud83c\udd70 \ud83c\udd7b\ud83c\udd88\ud83c\udd7d\ud83c\udd7d \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8 \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\udde6) 1647545133
Something seems missing from this equation.
She would have to nominate one that then has to be approved by both houses of Congress. A GOP House would never approve anyone she nominated, so the Speaker probably would end up President. This is scary stuff.— Beth (@Beth) 1647549329
There would be a period of time before a new VP has been confirmed by the Senate. However, as we have since learned, you can literally raise an insurrection against Congress and they won\u2019t remove you. So Kamala would be safe.— Ben Caspi (@Ben Caspi) 1647548643
Removing an impeached president and/or vice president requires the consent of 67 Senators.
Putting aside the silly 25th Am. crap, one huge obstacle to his plan is that removing Harris would require a supermajority. Even if Rs won every single Dem seat up in 22 (which they won\u2019t), it wouldn\u2019t be enough. Of course the rubes won\u2019t even question this ridiculous nonsense.— AdaKepley (@AdaKepley) 1647546797
This isn't even mathematically possible. There are only 14 D Senate seats open in 2022. So even if the GOP somehow wins all of them (which includes CA and NY), they're still at least 3 votes short of a 2/3 majority.— Alex Z (@Alex Z) 1647552067
Not to mention this little snag.
Of course, they need a plan to *install* a Republican president because they don't have a candidate or platform that a majority would actually vote for.— Spacefoo (@Spacefoo) 1647540803
