OOf all the residents of the sunken places of House Negro Depot, Republican congressional candidate Vernon Jones has to be the most disconcerting. Here’s a black man who was once successfully sued by white men accusing him of racially discriminating against white people, and now he’s another sensible Kool-Aid for white conservatives to rest their drinks cold on.

In short, it’s weird, but whatever.

Apparently, Jones isn’t looking to wait until 2024 to give Donald Trump another shot at the presidency. Instead, he wants his election to Congress to be an immediate route for Trump to go back to using his position as Commander-in-Chief to spread misinformation while spreading rotten tangelo-flavored loot dust all over the furniture in the building. oval office.

Now I know what you’re thinking, “Oh please, Jones is just continuing the GOP tradition of just saying s***. How does TF get elected to Congress to make Trump president again?” Well, admittedly, I was thinking the same thing, but it turns out it’s possible because a number of our policies regarding what qualifies an elected official are, well, stupid AFs.

“On day one in Congress, I will be filing articles of impeachment against Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for betraying the public trust,” Jones promised. “Then I will vote for President Trump to be President and invite my colleagues to join me. It’s time to throw out the old playbook.”

First, Republicans were extremely vague in citing a real cause to impeach Biden. Like Newsweek noted, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) asserted there were “multiple grounds” for examining it. He specifically cited that Biden had defied “federal immigration laws and allowed 2 million people to come here unimpeded, in direct violation of his obligation under Section 2 of the Constitution to ensure that the laws are faithfully executed”.

Of course, Cruz didn’t elaborate on how exactly Biden defied the law, but it likely has something to do with Biden. proposed changes to immigration policy, all of which seem to be aimed at making life easier for illegal immigrants. (The horror.) Of course, Cruz also admitted that Biden’s impeachment can be done “whether warranted or not” because Democrats did it first. You know we’re still living with the effects of the Trump presidency when “but, but, but they started” becomes a plausible reason to impeach a president.

But okay, let’s just say for the sake of a dumb argument that Republicans not liking what Biden wants to do with immigration laws was grounds for impeachment– what does this have to do with Vice President Kamala Harris?

Democrats didn’t impeach Mike Pence because Pence didn’t spend months spreading the baseless voter fraud allegations that resulted in a host of MAGA rubes who know nothing about anything that took hold. storming the US Capitol in a bid to overturn a demonstrably legal and legitimate election. Democrats also didn’t try to impeach Pence because he wasn’t the only one. accused by whistleblower of trying to influence the 2020 election by threatening Ukraine’s president if he didn’t investigate Hunter Biden in an alleged phone call corroborated by the acting ambassador to Ukraine.

Jones did not mention on what grounds he might impeach Harris, but why it would have to be done for Trump to be president again is clear.

“According to the order of presidential succession, if the president and vice president were removed from office, then the Speaker of the House would become president,” Newsweek reported.

It’s also apparently true that you don’t have to be a member of the House of Representatives to be Speaker of the House.it is enough to be nominated, according to Article I, Section II of the American Constitution.

I mean, it’s still a far-fetched plan, but the fact that it could possibly work indicates that the Constitution can sometimes be stupid. Not as stupid as Jones, but stupid.
