During a recent segment of his MSNBC show, Lawrence O’Donnell characterized guest House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as “two sneezes away from the Presidency”
Lawrence O’ Donnell:
The reason I mention tonight, the line of succession for the presidency is that Mike Pence was in Florida today, very proudly having a hamburger with the governor of Florida, wearing no mask, not taking the recommended precautions. Donald Trump, obviously, doesn’t wear a mask.
He’s going to go to a Ford factory tomorrow, where he surely will not be wearing a mask, not be taking all the precautions.
And so, there’s that old saying that the vice president is a heartbeat away from the presidency, but it seems tonight, you are two sneezes away from the presidency, with the fact that the president and vice president are not taking the necessary precautions.
