"There have been eight times in American history when the president has died in office, and the vice president has taken over these were men who are not elected to be head of the country, and in some cases weren't even the first choice of their own party. But yet they vastly changed US history. The men included John Tyler Millard, Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, Chester a Arthur Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, Harry Truman, and Lyndon B Johnson, a new book looks at what these men accomplish. And why half of them were actually reelected. The book is titled accidents presidents. Eight men who changed America. It's written by Jared cone CEO of jigsaw at alphabet. Cohen also spent five years as a member of the secretary of state's policy planning staff, and was a close advisor to both Condoleeza Rice and Hillary Rodham Clinton. Jared pleasure to have you with us today. Thank you for having me. Thank you. I have to ask it the top in looking at all these examples one that came. Mind. That was not included. Was Richard Nixon, and Gerald Ford. Yes, I debated this. When I when I went out to start writing the book, and what I concluded is the thing that was most interesting. And most compelling was the unexpected and abrupt transfer of power. If you look at the Nixon Ford transition, the transition didn't happen, upon the death of the president, it was sort of drawn out, it was it was related to scandal, and resignation and it's abrupt dramatic unexpected death in office that throws the country into a tailspin and abruptly elevates, a man, nobody thought was going to be president, the case afford so long as the Watergate hearings were happening in the lead up to people began to experience the idea and get used to the idea that Ford might become president. So as I mentioned, the top four these gentlemen, that you write about the book actually were re elected, so we have some examples here of vice president who became president who did a very. Good job. But also, you have examples of ones that didn't have a great time as the as the executive. That's correct. And I think what I'm struck by, in writing this book is how we basically wing two presidential. Succession, you don't have the twenty fifth amendment formalizing the fact that the vice president becomes president when their predecessor dies office until after JFK is assassinated. And so you get these men who are thrust in power who were thrown on the ticket, either as punishment in the case of teddy Roosevelt, or because they were the available man in the case of Millard Fillmore, but in each infants they rose to the pinnacle of power some of the most seminal moments in our history. So let's take, you know, ABRAHAM LINCOLN ABRAHAM LINCOLN is absent towards the tail end of the civil war, and we're supposed to get his vision for reconstruction, instead, the bullet of John, Wilkes, booth gives us Andrew Johnson. The last president owns waves who instead of following Lincoln's path ends up resurrecting many elements of the confederacy, we're joined on the phone by Jerry code who is the author of the book access. Dental presidents your comments are welcome at eight four four Warton, eight four four nine four two seven eight six six or if you'd like to comment on Twitter at biz radio one thirty two or my Twitter account, which is at Dan loan, yellow any y Twenty-one. What was the what was the impetus for wanting to do a book like this, because it's interesting when you role as CEO of jigsaw. It sounds like American history is very much an interest of yours when I was eight years old. My parents bought me children's book about the president's and when you're an eight year old and you're reading a book about the president's it's supposed to be innocent experience. But I v in on the eight instances, where president died, and my poor parents had to have conversations about death and assassination, and I never quite let it go. So when my wife was pregnant with our eldest daughter, I needed a nesting activity and decided after a life of reading biographies related to these abrupt transfers empower and collecting presidential memorabilia, including locks of presidential presidential hair, which is weird really? I decided this was going to be my nesting activity, and there's something nice about being CEO of, of an organization in an industry focus in Tirlian on the future, and spending my down time, reading about John Tyler Millard, Fillmore teddy Roosevelt, Alvin caused. It's very therapeutic and good for the soul. Who was of these eight men, who do you think was was probably the most accidental of the accidental presidents? Well, John Tyler certainly was the most accidental because the framers hadn't thought much about the vice presidency and didn't really want one in the first place. The vice president was added at the last minute as an electoral mechanism and William Henry Harrison dies after just thirty days in office. John Tyler has to race back from Virginia, because there's a debate that ensues with the cabinet the that he inherited about whether he's the president or the acting president. Yes. To spend his first month in office debating with congress, why he's not acting president. He ends up setting oppressive. That was followed seven more times, including all the way up to LBJ LBJ becomes president based on the precedent set by John Tyler in eighteen forty one and it ends up disastrous Tyler who's not really a wig. But it's thrown on the ticket to win Virginia, which they lost and give a nod states. Right. As ends up getting kicked out of the party. And in a moment of political rage animosity decides to annex, Texas and precipitate war with Mexico, Harry Truman. Probably the, the most predictable of this group of because of, of the illness issues that are had Harry Truman was both the most predictable, and in many respects the most ill prepared for the moment. And when you read about FDR and Harry Truman, it's endlessly frustrating because Truman during his eighty two days as vice president remember, he's thrown onto the ticket, because the party bosses no FDR is going to die, and they can't fathom the idea of Henry Wallace, who seen as Soviet sympathizer and ultra liberal liberal ending up as. Resident Truman during his eighty two days as president, he meets FDR twice doesn't get a single intelligence briefing, doesn't mean a single foreign leader. Isn't briefed on the Manhattan project isn't read into the war. And then he wakes up on April twelfth nineteen forty five five himself as president at the height of the war in the Pacific. You know, he's trying to figure out how to engage Churchill Stalin's reneging on every one of his promises from y'all to and yet Truman ends up being remarkable success. Yes. To make more seminal decisions, and it's I four months in office and probably any president who came before him, one of the big seems in the book and surrounds, the twenty fifth amendment, which is obviously getting some conversation right now as well. But this goes back in time to the days of, of LBJ JFK. And obviously this assoiation president Kennedy and take us into it for a second. The importance you'd think that the twenty fifth amendment has really had potentially for the presidency if it is needed to be in VO. Act which it has been a couple of times in, in recent years for when presidents have gotten sick. So with the mazing is the twenty fifth amendment gets passed at the end of LBJ's administration. And the first time it gets put into motion is, is actually not that the president the vice president Wednesday or two yak new resigns office. You know, Richard Nixon uses the twenty fifth amendment to replace him with Gerald Ford, and essentially pluck him from Michigan's fifth district. What what's fascinating is of the eight accidental presidents six of the vice presidents who ascended nearly died in office themselves. And yet, there was no provision of replacing the vice president of United States until the twenty fifth amendment. This, this sustained constitutional vulnerability that we left ourselves exposed to for most of the history of the Republic. The time of the twenty fifth amendment should have really been put in place was when Reagan was shot when Reagan was shot in eighty one the cabinet. A decision that, you know, it was a dangerous precedent for them to set to decide that Reagan was disabled. And so they chose not to vote the twenty fifth amendment. That's how you get the kind of elite type moments what's interesting is the twenty fifth amendment has only been exercised in terms of presidential disability for colon Oskoui's literally yet see an instance of the twenty fifth amendment being vote to temporarily discharge the duties of president or the vice president for any instance, other than a colonoscopy, George. George W Bush was one, and I believe President Reagan as well. Correct. Yes, that's correct. We're joined by Jerry Cohen, who's the author of the book, accidental president, your comments, welcome at eight four four Wharton. Eight four four nine four two seven eight six six or if you like Senator comment via Twitter either at biz radio one thirty two or my Twitter account, which is at Dan Loney, Twenty-one, I guess when you look at all of these different examples, the JFK LBJ one is probably one of the most talked about and, and remembered. Because of its timing, and also because of the fact that it was really in the starting to be in the TV agent in, you know, being able to see the video of what occurred. But then you also have to go back to Lincoln because of how that played out the nation by John Wilkes booth, and then also his successor, Andrew Johnson. So when I interviewed Jesse Jackson for the book, he said that when he learned of JFK's assassination, he felt like it was double facination won the president of the United States into civil rights people expected LBJ to be eight disaster for the civil rights movement, and what proved to be true with that the Kennedys were prepared to pay lip service to civil rights. They weren't really willing to back it up with real action. Particularly not in the lead up to the nineteen sixty four election. So I do believe that my write about this in the book that had Kennedy. Not had Kennedy survived. I think it's very unlikely you would have had the nineteen sixty four Civil Rights Act. You know, I also think that we overstate. Late. This idea that Kennedy wouldn't have gone down the same slippery slope in Vietnam, that LBJ did, I think that, that's largely architect by the guardians of Kennedy's reputation. If you look at the history of succession in, in this country, we look at the assassination of JFK as sort of, you know, incredibly dramatic moment in history because it's the most recent and it's also something that played out on television. But when you dig into the impact that assassination had at other times in our history Lincoln Garfield McKinley. There was a similarly dramatic impact and sustained period of mourning that ensued, and we just have forgotten, what that's like we're in the longest period of time without a president dying in office. How do you believe that, that Andrew Johnson should be remembered in his term, you know, following Lincoln? So Andrew Johnson proved to be the biggest disaster of all of the accidental presidents. And when we look at how we wind presidential succession throughout history, we got more or less pretty lucky navigating through except for the Andrew Jackson. They enter Johnson moment. And it was a moment of great significance..

"Be ready to lead on day one. Question for you. In the unlikely scenario that there were a president and vice president who were disabled or otherwise not performing the duties of the office, then at bounce to someone. It bounces to someone from Capitol Hill, and you have someone who has not been in on the top level intelligence briefings at the same level who has not been in the national Security Council who may be unaware of any of the executives policies similar to what Truman inherited from FDR, even though he was in the executive branch, but someone from the legislative branch coming over and suddenly becoming president. That's a shock to the system. We have not experienced yet. How do you think we would manage that? Yeah. That's a great point. Right. And I think it's even more complicated. When the speaker of the house is of a different political party current situation that we're in right now, the good news. I think numbers of congress just in their day to day affairs are getting intelligence briefings and are up to speed, but there is room for that. We revised presidential succession laws. All the way back to seventeen ninety two. So in seventeen ninety two presidential succession law says that you know, if the if there's a vacancy in the president and the vice president and the president pro tem becomes an acting president until the secretary of state can schedule special election, and then it's followed by the speaker of house, then in eighteen eighty six they get rid of the president, and the speaker, and the if there's a double vacancy, then the secretary of state, and then the rest of the cabinet becomes an acting president until a special election, and then it's revised to get nineteen forty seven where they reinstate the speaker of the house and the president pro time and that order, and then you have the twenty fifth amendment in nineteen sixty seven. So so, you know, we could become simply revising these laws, and I think if you look at everything from the designated survivor, and so forth, we try to account for all these different things. But I think the gap that you raises an important one. Which is how do you ensure that the speaker of the house and the president pro tem who are the only two non members of the adminis-? Ration- to be in the line of succession. How do you make sure that they're sufficiently in the loop, particularly in hyper partisan time when they're of a different political party, plenty of challenges to address in. We're better off when we address them with some knowledge of the history. Thanks for being this history alive with your book, accidental presidents Jared cone, it's been a pleasure. Thank you very much. The law. Fair podcast is produced in cooperation with the Brookings Institution. Thanks this week to Jared. Cohen for coming on the show. Please do share the podcast rate.

"Welcome back. This is the Ben Shapiro show. Well, America has had a bunch of president some good some not so good. But we've had a bevy of exit dental presidents as well people who didn't seek to become president. But the person under whom they were serving died in office. Jared cone is the founder and CEO jigsaw is the best selling author of four books, including his most recent book, accidental presidents examining eight instances in American history. When a president has died in office. He's also served as the Adjunct Senior fellow at the council on foreign relations, Jared, thanks so much for joining the Ben Shapiro show. Thank you bet. I'm happy to be here. So Jerry tells a little bit about your new book what prompted you to write about the accidental presidents. Interested by then my parents when I was eight years old bought me a book about the president. I like any eight year old fixated on the motive docking aspects of it which were the eight times in history of president had died in office as I got older, I became really fascinated by how we basically wind presidential succession. I took eight presidents dying in offense. Another nineteen close calls for us to formalize the way presidential succession work with the twenty fifth amendment after JFK's assassination. So of these eight presidents how many of them ended up being good and how many of them ended up being complete mediocrities? And who is the most surprising. Who's the person who was expected to be a mediocrity who ended up being good or reverse? Well that last one Ben because I didn't Harry Truman is really the big surprise. He's vice president for only eighty two days. He needs to FDR twice doesn't get a single intelligence briefing didn't meet a single foreign beater isn't briefed on the Manhattan project and wakes up on April. Twelfth nineteen forty five is president of the United States. The war in Asia Pacific is raging. Hitler still running the war in Europe from a bunker. The battle of Okinawa is happening at that precise moment and on paper. He never should have been successful. But through really rose to be occasion and made some of the most decisive decisions in the history of the presidency in. It's just interesting four months, you can trout that with Andrew Johnson where we were supposed to get the vision of ABRAHAM LINCOLN for reconstruction and the vote of John Wilkes booth has gone ended up giving us the last president to own slaves who essentially resurrected the old elements of the confederacy and set civil rights back one hundred years one of the things that most people who observe in politics have said is that the vice president is basically useless office until it becomes. In-incredibly useful office who there've been assassinations obviously in American history, but there's some presidents who obviously entered with a great deal of age. William Henry Harrison comes to mind, although his death was somewhat of a surprise when we look at the accidental presidents. What does the state generally about how vice president should be selected because there's a lot of talk about shooting selected VP to try and help you wanna presidential election. Should you select VP who's going to help you be a guide? What have you learned about what? What qualifications? We should be looking for in a vice president in reading the president's one of the things that I thought a lot about what had we learned our lesson with all of these instances where vice president became president. And it turned out that we still even with all of these unexpected deaths in office and all the many close calls. We still view vice president as a political marriage of convenience, right? You're against the ropes during a particular moment in the campaign or you wanna come out of the gate with a gimmick. But we we treat the vice presidency like a game. Electoral math as opposed to somebody who maybe qualifications to to leave the country, and you need to look no further back than than the selection of Sarah Palin as John McCain's running mate to sort of see how reckless we can still be with that choice. My view is you know, if you look at the the vice president in history, it's more or less than a story of either punishment because people want party bosses wanted to exile. For instance, teddy Roosevelt to the political equivalent of Elba or it's been seen as a job. That was available to anybody that wanted it and back in the day. Not a lot of people wanted it. Well, one of the things it's really fascinating about the book is that they're a bunch of figures who've been kind of fringe figures in American history until they are elevated as you say to the presidency that includes people like Chester Arthur somehow ends up as president of the United States despite a pretty nondescript career, the book is really worth reading go. Check it out right now, it's called the accidental presidents. I love history. And if you love history, you'll love the book to Jared Jared. Thanks so much for stopping by. Really? Appreciate it. Ben. Thank you so much. I appreciate it. Well, coming up we're going to be talking with Lahavi Harkat. She's the senior contributing editor over at the Jerusalem Post. The results of these rarely election are in it ends in effectively a dead tie between Likud and the blue and white party to call the Levin in Israel. And what that means is that prime minister Netanyahu remains prime minister and the left in the United States could not be more outraged over this it betrays a fundamental misunderstanding of exactly what politics has become an Israel. As a direct result of the hor-, Phil horrible horrifying in France. Just terrorist tendencies of the of the opposing governments to the state of Israel in that region. It's it's really amazing the left in Israel is basically dead that is the main takeaway from this particular election, but we'll be talking about that with LA Kharkov.

"So the New York Times reports that Horowitz his findings the inspector general could once again up end, the Justice department, and the FBI the highly anticipated of the results of the Russia inquiry do next week, but by may or June. We're going to know about the background of the Russia investigation. Self Republicans have long accused law enforcement officials of improperly obtaining the page warrants because the application relied in part on the Steele dossier at issue is one of the FBI and Justice department made any misrepresentation to the court when seeking the warrant or if they should have flagged explicitly any concerns about the credibility of the information in the application during their news. This has been the accusation. Representative Devin Nunes from California, he has suggested that the FBI and the DOJ downplayed the facts that apple research was used to garner visable vice lords against page, and they did that. Typically because they didn't care about the rules and procedures. They just wanted to get somebody in from orbit. If the inspector general finds fall at the FBI, it could help validate Republican accusations that the Russia investigation was politically motivated from the outset as you know, I've been skeptical of that entire line of inquiry. I've been skeptical that the FBI initiated this investigation knowing full well that it was mostly crap. That I I've been skeptical, but I'm open to new evidence. If something changes there, I'm more than happy to change my opinion about all of that my opinion is there are bad actors at the top of the FBI who were in fact, politically manipulating the direction of the investigation and the confirmation by his meant that they were willing to go along with activities that skirted the edge of the acceptable. Trump's allies introduce the inquiry of the problematic Steele dossier, the bureau opened the counterintelligence investigation into Russia's election meddling based on other information without the dossier.

Boy, one forcement officials were also granted three renewals of the wiretap from the surveillance court Horowitz scrutinizing the FBI's relationship with steel now Horwitz did a good job with the Hillary Clinton investigation. We'll see if he does similarly good job at thorough job. With regard to the Russia investigation. Asked whether he would have signed off on submitting the application of it did not contain the allegation in the Steele dossier about pages phone calls. The James Baker who's general counsel for the FBI. Call the allegation about pages visit to Moscow in two thousand sixteen an important part of the factual case for surveillance. In other words, maybe there's no Pfizer surveillance warrant four Carter page in the absence of the Steele dossier. Baker said, I'm not going to sit here and say, there wouldn't have been probably caused or the would have been probably caused without the dossier. But there are other things in the application that were alarming as well. So we'll see how all of this plays out already in just a second. We are going to be joined by Jared cone is the author of the bestselling new book about accidental presidents presidency sort of became president by accident. Kinda fascinating stuff. We'll talk with him about that in a second. I when President Trump says that America's not going to be a socialist country. He couldn't be more. Right.
