President Hillary Clinton?
Yes, it might sound far-fetched, but rumors on-the-ground in DC are intensifying ever since Justice Breyer announced his retirement.
The theory is composed of 4 simple steps:
- Appoint Kamala Harris to Breyer’s empty seat.
- Appoint Hillary Clinton vice president to replace Kamala.
- Joe Biden retires before his term is up.
- Hillary Clinton becomes the first female president of the United States.
Speculation has been flying crazy since the announcement was made.
I had a nightmare last night. Sleepy Joe Biden appoints Kamala Harris to the Supreme Court. He appoints Hillary Clinton as his VP. Sleepy Joe resigned as President. Hillary becomes President.

Now, the White House has denied that Kamala will be the SCOTUS pick.
But… we all know how honest this administration has been (not very).
What we DO know is that Biden has promised to pick a SCOTUS nominee based solely on gender and race.
He wants a black woman.
While there are obviously other (and more) qualified black woman in the country, Kamala’s approval ratings are far worse than Biden’s.
If he wants to get rid of her, now is the chance.
Jen Psaki just confirmed that Biden's SCOTUS nominee will be a black woman.

Biden should tap Harris for SCOTUS. He’ll get the first woman of color on the bench plus he’ll get to pick a new VP that people actually like.

Biden at 2/25/20 Democratic debate in Charleston promising to nominate a black woman to Supreme Court. ('Not a joke.') It was night before Clyburn endorsement; critical moment in Biden candidacy. https://t.co/1zNwyaogcI pic.twitter.com/7CO0VZOyLr

Trending Politics has more details on how this potential scenario could unfold:
First of all, Kamala Harris would need to be confirmed as Supreme Court Justice, prompting her resignation. Given that the Senate knows her all-too-well from her time as Senator and President of the Senate, they may be willing to throw her the SCOTUS seat just to be rid of her.
Next, Hillary Clinton would need to be nominated for vice president and confirmed by both houses of Congress. The 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which was passed in 1967. Section 2 states:
“Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.”
It would be a highly contentious battle to get Hillary Clinton through the gates and into the Oval Office once again. If the Democrats have any intention of doing so, they’d better hurry.
This seems like an unlikely scenario. But if it’s one thing we’ve learned from the Biden presidency thus far: Expect the unexpected.
Expect the unexpected… Ain’t that the truth!
Each and every day, the Biden regime becomes more outlandish and bizarre.
We truly wouldn’t be surprised if this is what Biden has hidden up his sleeve.

Even people in Boston think this could happen.
Keep in mind that Boston is very Democrat.
These people voted for both Joe and Hillary by huge margins.
No voter fraud was needed there because Boston is a reliably blue area.
Well, people in Boston are apparently licking their chops for this scenario to come true.
According to the Boston Herald:
Here are three things I’ve suggested that Joe Biden could do to save his train wreck of a presidency.
First get U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, 82, to retire. All right, that is done.
Now nominate Vice President Kamala Harris to take his place.
And then name Hillary Clinton, 74, to take Kamala’s place.
Presidency saved, at least for now.
If Old Joe is too far gone to seek re-election in 2024 — assuming he is still on the job — then Vice President Hillary Clinton, as heiress apparent, would be the Democrat nominee for president.
In the meantime, Harris would become the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court, fulfilling at least one of Biden’s campaign promises.
It is true that Biden said recently he would run again, and that Harris would be his running mate. But that was before Breyer’s announcement that he would retire, thus giving Biden a plum appointment to the high court.
And nobody believed it anyway, given Harris’ less than stellar performance as vice president. Many Democrats would be relieved to get Harris on the court and away from the presidency.
Should a stumbling Biden then resign or be mentally or physically incapacitated and removed from office through the 25th Amendment, Hillary, as the new vice president, would be president without an election. And the Democrats, if not the country, would let out a sigh of relief.
That never-used amendment, by the way, allows a majority of Cabinet members to inform Congress that the president is unable to perform his duties and should be replaced.
Either way, Hillary Clinton would be running for president in 2024, and would face off — and seek revenge — against Donald Trump.
Here’s the reality:
Rumors in DC don’t just pop out from thin air.
There must be talk happening behind the scenes for this rumor to have even been given breath.
So what do you think?
Is this far fetched?
Or could Joe Biden actually attempt to pull this off?
