Attendees at this weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference
(CPAC) in Dallas believe they have a foolproof plan to reinstall Donald Trump
in the White House
in just a few days.
However, the actual recommendations in PatriotSoars' seven-point plan appear to be woefully unrealistic in terms of restoring Trump to the presidency
For example, the first step would be to persuade Democratic
members of the Black
Congressional Caucus to switch parties so that “a trusted conservative,” presumably Trump, can replace Nancy Pelosi
(D-Calif.) as House speaker and reveal allegedly suppressed stories of election fraud
Then, according to reports, both President Joe Biden
and Vice President Kamala Harris
will be impeached, and Trump, as Speaker, will be the next in line for the presidency.
The tweet below includes all seven points.

Stardia sought comment from the PatriotSoars website and the Black Congressional Caucus, but neither responded immediately.
A casual observer familiar with the fundamental principles of critical thinking, on the other hand, might see problems with the plan, such as getting members of the Black caucus, such as Reps. Maxine Waters of California
and Jim Clyburn of South Carolina
, and Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey
, to join a political party
that does not reflect their values.
Oh, and there's the issue of finding 17 Democratic senators willing to impeach Biden and Harris in order to meet the Constitution's two-thirds requirement for removing a president or vice president from office.
RawStory did admit that one aspect of the probably-never-happening plan is feasible: because the speaker of the House does not have to be elected, House Republicans
could appoint Trump as speaker if they regain control of the House.
raised concerns about the plan's flaws.
have a majority in the House, so how will #6 come about? pic.twitter.com/qtGqxHFsKf — Kellyanne Parrish (@kellparrishnc) July 9, 2021
They can't impeach them both at the same time
. They can impeach them separately, but once one is removed, they can fill the VP slot. There is no way they can make Trump president by making him speaker. — Andrew "[Joke has been redacted]" Sherrod (@MyMagnifOctopus) July 9, 2021
I'm going to go ahead and say that No. 7 is going to be a tough slog, because Republicans don't have majorities, let alone two-thirds majorities, in either the Senate
or the House — Ben Buehler (@sourcerolls) July 9, 2021
However, one wise observer pointed out that the plan reflects the disillusionment that many Trump supporters
are experiencing in the aftermath of the 2020 election
He can't be Speaker if he's already President. They're admitting he lost. Oh, wait, they still claim he won... — Stray Political Cat (@StrayPolitical) July 9, 2021
