It would just be a way for TFG to take revenge and the Rs to whip up their base, possibly prior to FG running again.

I just wonder whey Republicans would need Trump? I think that if they gain a majority impeachment is a given.

The last time I heard or thought about Three Billy Goats Gruff was at least 60 years ago. That would put me back to 10 years old.

How the hell did I get this old?

But I can complain better than ever!

If he would've sent stimulus checks on the regular and addressed covid he would won handily, but now he has to do these amazingly complex things no one has ever done....

If GOP takes House in 2022 - Trump runs for Speaker and is elected - House impeaches Biden & Harris on trumped up charges - Senate (if they gain seats) convicts both - Speak of House (Trump) becomes President.

Wild, but we are in unprecedented times.

think we gained two seats from the census and of course gerrymandering coming up before 2022. And the voter suppression, especially in Harris County (Houston), which has the largest voter turnout in the state.

These "dickless" POS here in Texas are a disgusting lot.

You don't need to be a House Representative to be named Speaker.

From Wikipedia:
"The Constitution does not require the speaker to be an incumbent member of the House of Representatives, although every speaker thus far has been.[4]"
