Joseph Farah's April 8 WorldDNetDaily column began with a wacky rant:
When Joe Biden took the oath of office to become president – or, should we say, presidential pretender – I was morose.
I was one of the million or so cheerleaders for Donald J. Trump in Washington, D.C., Jan. 5-7 – for what has become known as "the insurrection." Then it was over.
That was not easy to accept. I believe Trump was the greatest president in the history of the United States. That's right! His achievements in four years exceeded that of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan. I loved them all. Reagan changed my politics. But Trump was one of a kind.
So, you can understand my disappointment – and to be replaced by Biden!
This was truly an outrage.While Trump was the greatest president ever, Biden has been the worst – with a sample size of only three months.
Biden is sullen, his voice hurts my ears, he's cognitively challenged, he's incoherent, he falls a lot – and, worst of all, he's mean. He lies on a grand scale and he's hopelessly immoral.
The worst thing he has ever done is to commit a high crime against America by perpetuating election fraud against the greatest country the world as ever known.
He then recounted a January column in which he fantasized that in 2022 Biden and Kamala Harris would be impeached "for high crimes and misdemeanors – not phony ones like they had to manufacture against President Trump, but real, weighty crimes." He's assuming that Republicans will take the House that year, so that would make Kevin McCarthy president (since the House speaker is third in line), and he could then appoint Trump as vice president. McCarthy would then resign, making Trump president.
Farah went on to tout a speech by former Trump adviser and pardoned criminal Steve Bannon, who in a related fantasy of Republicans naming Trump speaker of the House after retaking it in the 2022 elections, after which Biden and Harris would be impeachedf or "his illegitimate activities of stealing the presidency." A right-wing mind-meld commenced:
I texted Bannon a message asking if he had read my column.
"I loved it," he said.
Could this be the way this turns out?
[T]he latest to join the campaign is Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles.
Martin told "Secrets": "I'm serious. We need the Trump voters. With the possibility of having Donald Trump as speaker, conservative voter turnout would be through the roof nationwide."
Let's make it a wave. Ride the wave. This is a MAGA moment!
Farah willingly believes the lie that the eleciton was stolen -- just as he willingly elieved the lie that Barack Obama's birth certificate wdas faked -- so of course he would think this is a plausible and desirable outcome.
