Prof says Pelosi becomes President in January in an undecided election


Harvard Professor Laurence Tribe, a far-left Trump hater, appeared on Joy Reid’s opinion ‘news’ show to say that if another Bush-Gore problem arises, Speaker Nancy Pelosi becomes President of the United States.

Reid said the President and Republicans will sow confusion about the election and she fears the “Bush-Gore disarray” will be nothing compared to what Republicans will do to “break the system and maybe get a little Russian dressing on the side.”

By now, everyone in the media knows the Russia-Trump collusion tale was a hoax, but Democrats and their media continue to act as if it isn’t.


Tribe, who spreads disinformation on Twitter daily, responded to her concerns that “sycophantic Republicans could get in the way and hand it [the election] to Donald Trump,” claiming Nancy Pelosi would become President.

She thinks “sycophantic Republicans” in the states specifically could get in the way and delay the election.

He said, “there is a possibility but I wouldn’t get too alarmed about it. There is a statute that Congress passed which says that if the election does not produce any winner in a state then it is permissible for the state legislature itself to nominate a slate of electorates.”

The new Congress would decide the electorates to consider, he said.

Tribe falsely stated that Trump said he can delay the election. Trump never said that. He threw the question out, that’s all, and he did it because mail-in votes take weeks or months to count. Any new system of voting, especially mail-in voting, will delay the election. Mail-in voting is the same as absentee voting which we knows delays results considerably based on past experience.

Tribe dishonestly stated that it is what Putin wants, a reference to the Russia-Trump collusion [hoax].

Harvard’s Resistance leader went on to say “there is a fail-safe mechanism built into the Constitution itself and that is, no matter how much dust he throws into the gears, at high noon on January 20th, 2021, if there is not been a new president elected, at that point, Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, becomes president of the United States.”

The Harvard madman went on to call Republicans “enablers.”

Is that Democrats’ fail-safe and is this one reason why they are pushing mail-in voting? More than 40 days out, we don’t have the results of the New York Primary because of mail-in voting.

Watch the clip below or listen to the entire segment on this link:



  1. The President has incredible support in the party, 95+%, while Biden is a joke in his party. Tribe calls Trump supporters sycophants to conceal the reality about the bases of the candidates.

    Tribe does not get just that wrong. The corrupt and cowardly “leaders” of the republican party do not want Trump to win.

    This guy is the Fauci of law. There’s no legal basis to think Nancy would be president. A set of electors is not going to coalesce around an aged, irrational, polarizing leftist.

  2. Amendment 20: If a President shall not have been chosen before the time fixed for the beginning of his term, … the Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President elect shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.

    So, what has Congress provided by law?

    The Presidential Succession Act of 1947 names the Speaker of the House as the next in line. However, various scholars point out that Article II, Section 1, Clause 6 specifies that only an “Officer” may be designated as a Presidential Successor, and Members of Congress are not typically deemed such (Madison arguing this point already in the 18th century). So in that sense, Tribe is indeed opining FBOW on a question of legitimate constitutional concern. See also Article I, Section 6, Clause 2 (incompatibility of Members of Congress serving in the Executive Branch of Government).

  3. I only pray Tribe is wrong. Pelosi is not qualified mentally to be President. She is keeping our nation divided and that is causing the fracture of the government which is the cause of the riots and destruction. The riots are being funded by anarchist determined to destroy the USA.

  4. The left is so full of nutjobs its almost unbelievable. Tribe is another one of the intelligensia who has totally taken his self-worth for the truth.
    Of course, he is a “havard” professor, or something, which gives him gravitas when he opens his piehole. So many of these type on the left. Wow.
