If the President, Vice President, all 100 senators, all 435 representatives, and all 14 cabinet members died on the same day (most likely from a multi-pronged attack), who would become president?
“If the President, Vice President, all 100 senators, all 435 representatives, and all 14 cabinet members died on the same day (most likely from a multi-pronged attack), who would become president?”
In this highly unlikely scenario, the first thing that would happen would be that the governors of all the states would nominate 2 Senators each and they would get confirmed by their respective general assemblies. After this, those Senators would find and vote on a new President and Vice President. The new President would nominate a new cabinet and the Senate would confirm them. Depending on when the attack took place would determine whether the states would elect or appoint Representatives.
Aside from some political showboating, I figure this whole process could be complete in about 3 months. At the end of the 3 months, the people responsible will likely spend the rest of their short lives running only to die tired when the full force of the military lands upon their heads.

You mean AOC wouldn't be the boss? You know she thinks now she is,
No, you see, Gifted, AOC would be dead. She's in the House of Representatives which was totally killed off in Jack's scenario. You may want to check, but usually dead people aren't allowed to be boss. Please feel free to offer any of your new unique insights into this in case I'm mistaken.
Poor jank, so anxious to spew she can't keep up. Yes, she would be dead, thus my comment that it meant she WOULDN'T be boss, as she thinks she is now. Much like you. From now on maybe you can keep your snout out of other's discussions since you can't follow along.
Oh goodness...how "kind" of John to point that out to you.
