With any luck, he can tell them why that isn't going to happen -- IN PERSON.

While courts have never ruled, it is pretty evident that it could not apply to the presidency. The constitution sets not only the qualifications but disqualifications for the office. It is the only office that is addressed in such a fashion. A person could be convicted of treason and still be elected POTUS.

Unfortunately, the founding fathers framers of the constitution never factored in voter stupidity.

Not evident whatsoever. Far from settled law. Constitutional scholars can be found on both sides of the issue. Given the current Supreme Court, one can surmise on how it would be ruled on, but the court fight would be highly damaging to any seditionist/tratior.

Glad he got a serious penalty.

Please don't call them "founding fathers." That is cringe af.

It suggests that one small group of like-minded men got this whole United States thing going. Nope.

You are talking about the group who drafted the Constitution. They are better referred to as framers. Not founders.

And despite what Ron DeSantis says, they didn't agree on much.

Perhaps you should direct such remarks to your senator, Mr. Graham.
