Gephardt Issues Order Making Himself President
Gephardt Issues Order Making Himself President By Scott Ott: Just a day after announcing that he would use executive orders to overturn Supreme Court decisions, Rep. Dick Gephardt, D-MO, announced today that he has appointed himself President of the United States, effective immediately.
“I have duly sworn myself in as president,” he said. “Instead of having the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court administer the oath of office, I just issued an executive order effective retroactively in advance.”
President Gephardt has already issued an executive order making it illegal to “challenge the constitutionality of my reign as president.”
