In the Harrison Ford action flick Air Force One, the (fictional) president’s plane is hijacked, leaving his Cabinet to debate whether or not to invoke the 25th Amendment. This amendment to the Constitution makes it possible to relieve the president of his responsibilities if he is incapable of carrying them out.
Of course, in real life, this amendment has been relevant in a few drastic circumstances: during the administrations of Woodrow Wilson, James Garfield and even Ronald Reagan, a president’s temporary incapacity has become a matter of national importance.
It’s a sign of how desperate the Democrats are right now that they are looking to the 25th Amendment as a way to remove Donald Trump from office — and he hasn’t even served his first hundred days yet.
Rep. Early Blumenauer (D-Ore.) says a “fatal flaw” in the amendment must be addressed so Trump can be removed from office on account of his alleged “erratic behavior.”
Blumenauer also presents as evidence Trump’s “late-night tweets with the grammar and misspellings of a fifth-grader,” if you can believe it.
He’s not alone, as Scott Osborn writes:
Meanwhile, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) said that he plans to introduce legislation requiring a psychologist in the White House to monitor Trump’s “incredibly disturbing” behavior.
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) alleges that Trump’s habit of stating falsehoods is demonstrative of his mental illness. He cited the president’s unsubstantiated statements about millions of illegal votes for his rival, Democrat Hillary Clinton, in November’s election.
Because everyone knows what paragons of mental health comedians are, even former ones like Franken.
The Democrats are so tone deaf and out of touch that they actually say these things in public and think it will endear them to the average American. Ironically, these bizarre proposals make the Democrats look like the crazy ones.
