So, we survived that then

Kamala Harris became the first woman to be given presidential powers on Friday as Joe Biden briefly transferred authority while he underwent a colonoscopy.

The White House said Ms Harris served as acting president for an hour and 25 minutes while Mr Biden was placed under anaesthesia for the routine procedure.

She didn’t set off the missiles or anything by mistake. Now the question is, would we all still survive if she had 23,000 times that span in which to fuck up during a first term?

  1. And no one even noticed she was there. Kind of like when the boss leaves for lunch and leaves the secretary “in charge.”

  2. I thought that once he was under the anaesthetic, they would send in the team that did for Epstein and off we go…

  3. Sam @8.35. The rules allow a President to hold office for a maximum of ten years, so the Democrats need Biden to last till Jan 20, 2023 at 12:01 PM. This will allow Harris to take over but also allow her to run in 2024 and, if she should win, again in 2028.

    The chances of a black woman winning is open to debate……

  4. Come on Tim, an hour and a bit is not even 1% of the time you’d need to make an inertial juggernaut like the US notice anything, let alone react to it. Even the major “one decision” (near)cockups took months to develop.

    To have been able to influence anything in her suddenly-elevated position she must have been superhuman. And we know she is the opposite of that.

    “Was she in charge when the Rittenhouse verdict came in ?”

    Unsurprised that this is being reported in the MSM here in the UK as ‘not guilty of murder after shooting dead two people at a BLM protest’

    No mention that those killed were white. No mention that the ‘protests’ had, as usual, turned to riots.

    Biden is ‘angry’ at the verdicts. FFS.

  6. Tim Pool yesterday: “The first woman with the power of the Presidency will forever go down in history as receiving her power due to the sitting president getting his ass examined”

  7. “Biden is ‘angry’ at the verdicts. FFS.”

    A Democrat license to riot with impunity isn’t worth much if people are allowed to shoot you.

    Is it 1:26pm now, since she’s had a bit already?

  9. I can remember having a general anesthetic for an operation, and I wasn’t remotely back to normal (cognitively speaking) after just 90 minutes. On the other hand, Xiden exhibits little brain function even without an anesthetic…

    I had gas end air during my last colonoscopy and walked out of the recovery room 15 minutes after they had finished and drove home. The previous times I’d been sedated and told not to drive for 48 hours.

    If Condoleezza Rice could be persuaded to run I reckon she’d have a good chance.

  12. The Secret Service was probably under orders to shoot her if she moved while Biden was under anesthesia. The anesthesiologist may also have been threatened as to what might happen to him if Biden didn’t wake up.
