Apparently Steve Bannon is the one putting this foolishness out there. Who knows, it might even appeal to the delusional Donald Trump, who's been suffering from lack of attention since 80 million Americans stole the presidency away from him. Former congressman and Trump fanboy Jason Chaffetz calls it a great idea, saying Trump could "investigate everybody and he can impeach everybody...It would make for great TV!"

Republicans, the party of self-delusion.

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."

Naturally, Fox News takes the idea seriously.
