As if Trump would be appointed Speaker of the House once the GQP takes control of the House of Representatives in 2022. Then a GOP House would impeach Biden on the way to Trump returning as POTUS* in 2024, because cartoon presidency and magical GQP thinking, like 31 days in June.
The case for a Trump House run.
1. Gets a gerrymandered district.
2. With Trump running, 2022 is about him. No GOP distancing. No other stars. His party.
3. Rs win House, Trump Speaker.
4. Certain center stage in 2023.
5. Is 2024 nominee as Speaker and winner, not ex- and loser.

Former President Trump on Friday called a proposal that he run for the House in 2022 to try to win the speaker’s gavel “interesting,” though the chances of him actually doing so remain low.
Trump was asked about the proposal by far-right radio host Wayne Allyn Root on Friday after Steve Bannon, a former adviser to the ex-president, floated the idea.
“That’s so interesting,” Trump said.
“Yeah, you know it’s very interesting,” Trump added, saying that others had suggested he run for Senate. “But you know what, your idea might be better. It’s very interesting.”
Right-wing commentator Wayne Allyn Root urged Trump to run for a House seat, become Speaker of the House, and then launch criminal investigations into Biden and impeach him. Trump was intrigued: "It's very interesting." pic.twitter.com/5ECkSABDbi

Again the problem isn't that Maggie is reporting Trump's so-called delusions. It's that she's not reporting that Trump is going to attempt a second coup. Coup attempts aren't legal, but Jan 6 showed they were possible. https://t.co/3TZ3AqKSC7
