Delusional Democrats are willing to go to any lengths to remove President Trump from office. Instead of trying to do it the old-fashioned way by winning at the ballot box, they have tried all kinds of dirty tricks to accomplish their goal. Impeachment, the Russia hoax, and now even invoking the 25th Amendment have all been thrown out there in a desperate bid to remove Trump from politics for good…and none of it has worked. But will their latest tactic be the silver bullet they’ve been waiting for?
Democrats are going to have a meeting on Friday to discuss how to invoke the 25th Amendment to have Trump replaced as President less than a month before the election…yes, you read that right! We aren’t living in an episode of the Twilight Zone. This is real life, and this is a real discussion.
At a press conference on Thursday, Speaker Nancy Pelosi teased the media with the following statement: “Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow, come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment. But not to take attention away from the subject we have now…
I’m not talking about it today except to tell you, if you want to talk about that, we’ll see you tomorrow,” she said. “But you take me back to my point, Mr. President, when was the last time you had a negative test before you tested positive? Why is the White House not telling the country that important fact about how this made a hotspot of the White House?”
Last time I checked, the President was standing upright and is conscious. There is absolutely no reason to use the 25th Amendment to remove a president capable of performing his duties.
The 25th Amendment was ratified to provide a backup plan for the line of succession in case of the incapacitation or death of a sitting president.
The president literally has to be unable to perform his duties to be replaced by the Vice President.
Just because Trump says things that are not politically correct doesn’t mean he is unfit to continue serving as president.
The 25th Amendment reads:
“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”
The 25th Amendment is meant to be used ONLY when the president is unable to perform his duties due to mental and physical incapacity, not because members of Congress have political scores to settle
This isn’t the first time a prominent Democrat threatened to use the 25th on Trump. In August, Rep. Maxine Waters said the following to MSNC:
“The president of the United States of America is unbelievably divisive. The president lies. He’s pitting people against each other, going back to the old birther argument that they attempted to use against Obama. This is a president that is the most deplorable human being that I have ever encountered in my life. And he’s undermining our democracy. We cannot take any more of this president…
I believe that it is time for Section 4 of Amendment 25 to be put in place and his cabinet should send to Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker, as identified in the Constitution, that this man should be removed from office. Section 25 should be put in place. He is dangerous. He is tearing up, again, this country, undermining our democracy.”
Mad Maxine and Madame Speaker continue to display their severe cases of TDS, but despite all their ranting and raving, very little is getting done. Maybe Trump Derangement Syndrome will be the next disease cured once a COVID vaccine is developed.
God knows the entire Democratic Party could use a dose.
