WTH?: State Department Website Shows Trump and Pence’s Terms Ending Monday Night

It’s difficult to comprehend why President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence’s biographies on the U.S. Department of State’s website claim that their terms will end Monday night, but they do.

President Trump’s bio has been completely wiped and now shows his term ending at 7:49 p.m. on January 11, 2021:

And it appears that Vice President Mike Pence’s term also ends tonight, albeit five minutes earlier:

Shortly after we published this article, we refreshed the president’s page to see if there was an update. Nope, but things aren’t going well:

Then, at about 5:45 p.m. EST, the State Department website began redirecting both Trump and Pence’s biography pages to the home page. In other words, the president and vice president’s bios are gone.

So if you’re wondering who would be president until January 20 since Pence is supposedly out, it’s Speaker Nancy Pelosi according to the Presidential Line of Succession.

Honestly, a hack or disgruntled employee are the most likely reasons for the erasure of both Trump and Pence’s biographies and the oddly chosen timestamp for the end of their terms, but without a State Department statement, it’s hard to say. And, State isn’t commenting just yet.

Discovery of the modified bios came just after confusion over a supposed Trump appearance set for Monday afternoon. First, Fox News said he would “speak” at 1:30 p.m. EST, then changed the time to 3:15 p.m. and inserted a stream of President-elect Biden getting his second vaccination instead.

Then, the event just disappeared from existence – no explanation was given.
