“become the Speaker of the House, lead the impeachment of Biden and start criminal investigations against Biden”
During a recent interview with Trump, conservative talk host Wayne Allyn Root suggested that he should run for a House seat in Florida, become Speaker of the House, and then lead an impeachment effort against Biden.
This is a hilarious idea not only because it could actually work, but because it would drive the left positively bonkers.
Trump was open to the suggestion, saying “that’s so interesting.”
Tal Axelrod reports at The Hill:
‘So interesting’: Trump pitched on idea to run for House, become Speaker
Former President Trump on Friday called a proposal that he run for the House in 2022 to try to win the speaker’s gavel “interesting,” though the chances of him actually doing so remain low.
Trump was asked about the proposal by far-right radio host Wayne Allyn Root on Friday after Steve Bannon, a former adviser to the ex-president, floated the idea.
“That’s so interesting,” Trump said.
“Yeah, you know it’s very interesting,” Trump added, saying that others had suggested he run for Senate. “But you know what, your idea might be better. It’s very interesting.”

Let’s take this idea a step further. During a State of the Union address, Trump would be standing behind Biden. Perhaps he could rip up a copy of Biden’s speech during the event, and then we can watch the same media types who cheered for Pelosi run for their fainting couches.
The left is apparently taking this seriously, as Newsweek even laid out what it would take for this to happen:
Even if Trump chose to run for a House seat in 2022, he would have to win that race and Republicans would have to take control of the House of Representatives for him to have a shot at becoming speaker of the legislative chamber. Currently, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, is seen as the frontrunner to become speaker if GOP candidates successfully flip the House in the midterm elections.
Notably, Trump also suggested in a Friday statement he does plan to run for the presidency again in the future. After Facebook announced Trump will remain suspended from the social media platform until 2023, the former president released a statement saying he’d no longer have Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg over for dinner at the White House.
It certainly is fun to think about.DONATE
