Back in July, Fox News columnist, Steve Kurtz, asked the question regarding the 25th amendment: Constitution or Coup? But that wasn't the first time the 25th amendment was mentioned by democrats. They've been pining to use it to remove Trump from the day he took office. Since the events in Charlottesville, this narrative has exploded inside the media, with one story after the next calling for the removal of the President under the terms of the 25th amendment.
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.Here is a collogue of media headlines, asking whether America should remove its President in less than 1 year from being elected. This is just a sample. I could've posted dozens of headlines if I wanted to. Defenders of Trump will point out that his behavior has been consistent over decades and what you're seeing now is merely a continuation of his eccentric demeanor. In a CNN program this morning, CNN's Brian Stelter, joined by WaPo's Carl Bernstein and two other Never Trumpers, asked whether the President should be removed from office using the 25th amendment. Bernstein said it should be the primary goal of the media to get republicans on the record calling for his removal, emphatically believing the President was mentally ill. Stelter posed the question to his audience: "Is the President of the United States a racist? Is he suffering from some kind of illness? Is he fit for office? (feigns fake concern) And if he's unfit, then what?" In summary, Trump could not win the election -- because he was a joke. Trump ended up winning, but only thanks to Russian hackers. Since Trump was helped by Russian hackers, he must've colluded with them. If Trump colluded with them, he should be impeached (cue Muller). Since the Mueller investigation is taking forever, let's remove him for daring to suggest that ANTIFA thugs, who regularly beat up people for exercising free speech, were bad actors. Notice how Stelter posed his multi-tiered question, leading with 'Is Trump a racist?' Get the audience to first agree to something they've been programmed to believe, and then the rest will fall into place -- sales 101. In short...
