Oddly, the left has been hinting at their strategies during the election and has, in fact, bulls-eyed when Nancy Pelosi declared that the president would take the voters to lead by the end of election night yet would still not win. 

Joe Biden’s president-elect status has barely been celebrated yet by the media when indications on the next phase of the Dem’s plans started to emerge. Articles on what would or should happen if a president-elect dies before inauguration began to surface. Kamala and her can’t wait to replace Sleepy Joe. 

An editorial of The Los Angeles Times raised questions on Joe Biden’s health days before the national election. This was at a time when the Dem candidate was dynamically holding several rallies a day. 

The editorial may have been a perfect timing if released when Sleepy Joe was still in his basement napping. It read, “Trump’s COVID infection spotlighted a problem: What happens if a president-elect dies?”

The article may have focused on Trump, yet, was actually directed at Biden’s obvious and advancing dementia. Trump still holds the presidential seat; thus, the question of what would happen if the president-elect dies could only become an issue if Biden would be proclaimed by the media as the winner.

Quartz reporter Tim McDonnell published an article on Saturday entitled, “What happens if a president-elect dies before the inauguration?”



“It may seem morbid, but given that Biden, at 77, will be the oldest president-elect in history and is running in the midst of a pandemic, it’s worth clarifying what would happen if he dies before taking office,” McDonnell wrote.

Then he stated the obvious – that Kamala Harris would almost certainly take over should Joe Biden die before being inaugurated as president.

On Sunday, another journalist wrote on the same topic. Emily France wrote an article suggesting that Biden was susceptible to the coronavirus and to the “evil right-wingers.” 

“It’s extremely unlikely to happen to Biden, but at 77, he’s also contending with a pandemic and a fiercely divided electorate, so nothing is impossible,” said France adding that the “fiercely divided electorate” show how “violent conservatives are.”



Nancy Pelosi has also unveiled to Congress an elaborate proposal to use the 25th Amendment in removing a president if judged unable to perform his duties. 

The House Speaker emphasized, “This is not about President Trump — he will face the judgment of the voters.”

However, President Trump saw the Dem’s strategy, tweeting early October, “Crazy Nancy Pelosi is looking at the 25th Amendment in order to replace Joe Biden with Kamala Harris. The Dems want that to happen fast because Sleepy Joe is out of it!!!”

The president was right all along. The left-leaning media has started to prepare the groundwork for Harris instead of Biden if he dies prior to his inauguration.
