baller as hell

Following the assassination attempt on Ronald Reagan on March 31st, 1981, Secretary of State Alexander Haig addressed the press…

Constitutionally, gentlemen, you have the President, the Vice President and the Secretary of State in that order, and should the President decide he wants to transfer the helm to the Vice President, he will do so. He has not done that. As of now, I am in control here…

Even though there are three offices between the Secretary of State and the Presidency (Vice President, Speaker of the House, and President pro tempore of the Senate), Haig attempted to seize the opportunity before him and appoint himself the new ruler of America.

The only way this guy could be any more my hero is if while he was overthrowing the government, he was also shredding electric guitar and riding a skateboard with the devil.
