The fact that people lap this up the way they do is proof positive that the method is truly “anything but sedevacantism” over in the rest of trad land.

Imagine actually believing that Our Lord’s promises to St. Peter and all his valid successors were commands able to be broken.
“The holy Church built upon a rock, that is Christ, and upon Peter or Cephas, the son of John who first was called Simon, because by the gates of Hell, that is, by the disputations of heretics which lead the vain to destruction, it would never be overcome; ...
thus Truth itself promises, through whom are true, whatsoever things are true: “The gates of hell will not prevail against it” [Mt 16:18]. The same Son declares that He obtained the effect of this promise from the Father by prayers, by saying to Peter: “Simon, behold Satan etc.”
Therefore, WILL THERE BE ANYONE SO FOOLISH AS TO DARE REGARD HIS PRAYER AS IN ANYWAY VAIN WHOSE BEING WILLING IS BEING ABLE? ...
By the See of the chief of the Apostles, namely by the Roman Church, through the same Peter, as well as through his successors, have not the comments of all the heretics been disapproved, rejected, and overcome, ...
and the hearts of the brethren in the faith of Peter which so far neither has failed, nor up to the end will fail, been strengthened?”

(Apostolic Letter In Terra Pax, Pope St. Leo IX, emphasis obviously mine)
If you *cannot* affirm of Jorge Bergoglio what Our Blessed Lord promised to St. Peter and every single one of his valid successors, what we as Catholics must believe concerning the papacy, then dump who must be an imposter. Cling to the Catholic Faith. It’s literally that easy.
