Liberals simply can’t come to terms with the fact Donald Trump is president.
The latest liberal plan is to use the 25th Amendment as a tool to get rid of Trump.
Basically, a liberal Congressman is pretending he wants to update the 25th Amendment but he clearly just wants to bash Trump.
Here’s what he wrote in an op-ed.
From Oregon Live:
The erratic behavior of Donald Trump has raised new questions about his mental and emotional capacity to discharge the tremendous burdens of the most powerful position in the world. It is the president who has the ability to launch nuclear weapons, unleashing untold devastation on the world. Presidents can create diplomatic chaos or move markets with the most carefully crafted declarations, let alone late-night tweets with the grammar and misspellings of a fifth-grader and decidedly unpresidential tone.
That’s basically the only message he has. He is masking his Trump slam by saying he wants to change a “flaw” in the 25th Amendment.
His argument boils down to the claim that Trump is so crazy we should make it easier for other people outside the cabinet to relieve Trump of his duties like we have in the past when presidents have been sick or shot.
From Western Journalism:
The 25th Amendment allows the vice president to become president if the president resigns or is removed from office by his Cabinet for being “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” It was ratified in 1967 following President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination.
Blumenauer said that allows a president “who is suffering from mental illness and is emotionally unstable or irrational” to fire his Cabinet in order to “prevent the application of the amendment.”
He said he was exploring legislation that would include former presidents and vice presidents in that deliberation.
I'm starting the process of fixing fatal flaw in the 25th amdt, in the case of a President who is unstable: https://t.co/dqt7iqzxH2

No dude, you’re not.
Is this really the most important thing you have on your plate right now?
This is what you were elected to do in Washington?
What a complete waste of time.
He isn’t the only guy talking 25th Amendment either.
