Ok, so here’s a question: ever thought of a scenario where House Speaker Nancy Pelosi takes over the White House as the president of the United States? Not possible some people might say. But in fact it is very much possible but lets hope it never happens.
Judge Andrew Napolitano, a Fox news senior judicial analyst took out time to explain the “not so good” scenario where Nancy Pelosi takes over the White House as president of the United States. According to Napolitano, Pelosi would automatically assume the role of acting president if the 2020 election is delayed.
Judge Andrew Napolitano to host Stuart Varney: It might be right, president Trump’s term ends at precisely noon on Jan. 20, 2021. If the Electoral College has not yet named a successor, presumably either Donald Trump or Joe Biden, then whoever is the speaker of the House would become the acting president of the United States.
If the Democrats retain their majority in the House, and it appears likely that they will, but if they do, and if they choose Mrs. Pelosi, knowing at that point that they’re choosing the president of the United States, then it would be she.
if the Electoral College is unable to choose a successor, the election would go to the House of Representatives, not for a majority vote, but a vote by state, in which each state delegation would vote on their own, independent of their state’s election results, and whoever has a majority of 26 states would become president until Jan. 20, 2025. That has happened in the past, that’s how Thomas Jefferson was elected the first time around in 1800, Napolitano noted.
