Response to MineralMan (Original post)

84. Gerald Ford - was not in the line of succession when appointed Vice President, and subsequently

President upon the resignation of President Richard Nixon.

He was the House minority leader, elected only by the people of his Michigan district to represent them in Congress.

This has no direct bearing on speculation of how and who could replace Trump, but is worth noting as an aberration of the typical route to the Presidency.
