Donald Trump’s former U.S.

Intelligence chief Richard Grenell held the illustrious title of President of the United States in his career bio on Wikipedia before the reference was yanked from his page.

And he was A-OK with that title.

“I will run up the stairs without tripping and then announce a plethora of Executive Orders.

Stay tuned,” he tweeted after he was made aware of the faux pas.

He played along, announcing what he’d do with the power afforded in his newfound job:

“I hereby order an LNG terminal to be built ASAP on the West Coast of the United States (preferably in California),” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.

Then: “I hereby order multiple desalinization plants to be built in California.

And I also hereby order new Nuclear power plants to be built in California.

Oh, and Eric Swalwell hereby loses his security clearance.”

I will run up the stairs without tripping and then announce a plethora of Executive Orders.

Stay tuned.

It is unknown how long Grenell was named the leader of the free world on Wikipedia before the information site edited out the reference on his page.

However, the incorrect bio info stayed posted long enough for it to be picked up by Google and for lots of Twitter users to take note:

So this is interesting.

Unlike former president Trump, who has been permanently banned from Twitter, “President Grenell” is still allowed to Tweet at will.

For the record, Grenell is the former acting director of national intelligence (DNI), serving under President Trump from Feb.

20, 2020, to May 26, 2020.

“A member of the Republican Party, Grenell served as the United States Ambassador to Germany from 2018 to 2020 and as the Special Presidential Envoy for Serbia and Kosovo Peace Negotiations from 2019 to 2021… Grenell was named by President Trump in 2020 as Acting Director of National Intelligence in the Trump administration, making him the first openly gay person to serve at a Cabinet level, albeit in an acting capacity, in the United States.

However, he was not confirmed by the Senate as is required by Article II, Section 2, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution and therefore he was not the first openly “confirmed” gay Cabinet member in U.S.

history as he was serving as interim.

He was Acting DNI from February to May 2020.”

The above is according to Wikipedia.

And it is correct.

Google describes Richard Grenell, ex-intelligence chief and possible candidate for California governor, as 'president since 2021'

Google describes Richard Grenell, ex-intelligence chief and possible candidate for California governor, as ‘president since 2021’

Richard Grenell, a former acting director of national intelligence turned potential Republican candidate for governor of California, gleefully seized on an error by Google on Saturday, promising “a plethora of executive orders” after the search giant listed him as “President of the United States since 2021”.

The former Trump aide also took a low shot at the actual president, Joe Biden, tweeting: “I will run up the stairs without tripping.”

Biden stumbled dramatically on Friday, as he climbed the stairs to Air Force One.

On Saturday, before noticing his accidental promotion by Google, Grenell complained about media coverage of Biden’s fall including criticism of Donald Trump Jr’s decision to tweet a gif showing his father knocking Biden over with a golf ball.

“Washington DC types are killing humour and laughter,” Grenell claimed.

Few Democrats or Washington officials found much to laugh about in Grenell’s time as acting director of national intelligence.

In February last year, one unnamed former official told Vanity Fair his appointment “clearly, unambiguously” represented “the politicisation of intelligence” and said the former ambassador to Germany was Trump’s “guardian against fact”.

In the event, Grenell filled the role for three months before being replaced by John Ratcliffe, a former congressman many observers thought similarly unqualified and inappropriately partisan.

On Saturday, Grenell’s first tweeted “executive orders” as the Google-anointed president, if not the actual one, included the demand that a liquid natural gas terminal “be built ASAP on the west coast of the United States (preferably in California)” and that “multiple desalinisation plants [and] new nuclear power plants be built in California”.

“Oh,” he added, “and Eric Swalwell hereby loses his security clearance.”

Swalwell, a California Democrat who briefly ran for the presidential nomination in 2020, was a House manager in Trump’s second impeachment trial.

Republicans have sought unsuccessfully to remove him from the House intelligence committee, over reports of links to a suspected Chinese spy.

By lunchtime on the east coast on Saturday, Google had fixed its mistake.

Grenell seems more likely to run for state than national office.

Gavin Newsom, the Democratic governor of California, is the subject of a recall attempt.

In February, Grenell was reported to have discussed a run with Trump.

Speaking to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Florida, Grenell said: “And of course, if a public official is still failing to deliver on their promises, and if you can’t limit their term or recall them in time, there’s always one other option.

You can run against them yourself.”
