CNN: Assassinating Trump Could Keep Obama Administration in Power

by | Jan 19, 2017 | Christianity Today | 30 comments

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.

    More like making it sound plausable or worse.

    Okay, now it’s official: it is a sin to watch CNN.

      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!

      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.

    Corrupted minds and evil hearts

    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.

    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.

    • nomorensa

      Your kidding?

  8. Gary

    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.

  9. Betsy

    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!!!

    • Robert Smith

      Amen Betsy

    It’s CNn that needs to be asssinated! I NEVER watch them. Wicked people own them.

  11. SMD

    This is so sick, sad and unprofessional on every level. Boycott CNN

  12. Ardith Smith

    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.

  13. Ron shires

    Trump’s election shows there is power in prayer & activity that demonstrates faith.

  14. Linda

    My God these animals have gone crazy!
    I think they need to be admitted and tranquilized!

  15. Anthony Marquize

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

  16. Alice

    Why would CNN air this type of Vendictive news ! And HOW is it that this,worst case suggestion even be allowed to air?!?

  17. Steve polsky

    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.

  18. worthsaying53

    It just goes to show how much they need Jesus

  19. johnwillis

    CNN lost all credibility as a news outlet, Wolf Blitzer in particular long ago.

  20. Chaz

    I wonder if they will get press passes to the inauguration????

  21. Terri Woodrome

    This is complete insanity-hopefully someone will prosecute! TRUMP WON, SHUT UP AND MOVE ON!!! ??????

  22. Alice Ahern

    CNN must be run by Muslims.

  23. Deborah

    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!
