Here’s the Order of U.S. Presidential Succession (You Might Want to Keep it Handy)

There are now reports that U.S. intelligence agencies aren’t sharing sensitive information with the Trump White House…because they’re afraid they can’t trust Trump’s crew from blabbing to the Russians.  This sad joke of an administration is beginning to show it’s cracks. Just in case, here’s the way the succession of executive power would go in case Trump is, in the terms of his many beauty pageants, “unable to fulfill his duties”.

I’ll include the name of the person and a fun factoid.

Just stop reading when you get to a name that you feel comfortable with. And, sorry, Kiefer Sutherland’s name doesn’t show up anywhere on this list.

U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence



Minuses: Staunchly anti-gay rights, believes global warming is a “myth.”

Pluses:  Not an obviously insane, orange-skinned buffoon with narcissistic personality disorder.

U.S. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan



An uncontroversial, wonkish policy nerd who is in insanely good physical shape. Basically, the exact opposite of Trump. (And this, friends, is where I jump off. Ryan would be a good steward of the executive office).

Once said, “I wouldn’t want homosexuals teaching school anymore than I’d want to see members of the American Nazi Party teaching school.”

Frank Zappa recorded a song called “Orrin Hatch on Skis.”

Yes, the “Mad Dog” guy. A president with a name like “Mad Dog” should show the Russians whose boss. Oh, right … I forgot. Putin’s the boss.

His middle name is, unbelievably, “Beauregard” and when he talks he actually sounds more like Col. Sanders than any of the actors they have trying to impersonate him.
