The United States was thrown into a constitutional crisis last night when President Donald Trump sacked himself.
A video was released of the President pointing at a full-length mirror and saying, “You’re fired!”
Earlier in the day, Trump had sacked his Vice President, Mike Pence, so there was no immediate successor to take over as President.
Sean Spicer, who had been temporarily reinstated as Press Secretary, said, “There is absolutely no crisis in the White House.”
While constitutional lawyers on Capitol Hill debate what to do next, Alec Baldwin has agreed to stand in as Acting President.
