At a time when Americans are desperate for the COVID aid that Nancy Pelosi keeps blocking, the speaker of the house is attempting one more ploy to remove Donald J. Trump from the White House…the 25th Amendment. During her weekly Thursday press conference, Pelosi invited reporters to come back on Friday for the news, “Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow, come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment.” Pelosi 25th Amendment
The 25th Amendment allows for the vice president to become acting president if is determined that the president “is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” Section four of the amendment explains.
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.
Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days 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. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.
Pelosi wants to be the one controlling that decision. She plans to introduce legislation Friday that would create a “Commission on Presidential Capacity,” which would be involved in the presidential transfer of power procedures under the 25th Amendment.
Later in the day Pelosi was interviewed on Bloomberg TV, and implied that the President may be suffering from “roid rage.”
Pelosi suggested that the president may not be thinking clearly because of the drugs he has taken while being treated for the disease. “The president is, shall we say, in an altered state right now,” Pelosi said on Bloomberg TV. “I don’t know how to answer for that behavior.”She continued, “There are those who say when you are on steroids or have Covid-19, there may be some impairment of judgment.”
Nancy, what happened to believing in science? A doctor would tell you that the steroids that Trump took for CORONA, and the ones that give you “roid rage” are different.
This is typical of the Democrats ever since Trump won the election. America is fighting a pandemic, they are fighting for their health and the economy. Instead of trying to protect the American people and negotiate with the President, Pelosi is obstructing and politicalizing. The 2020 presidential election is in only 26 days and the democrats are going to try and invoke the 25th Amendment. If anyone they are the ones who are crazy. Especially when one considers there is no way their bogus effort will be successful. Pelosi would have to convince Senate Republicans to pass her bill, and Vice President Mike Pence would also have to sign the declaration which would be highly unlikely.
It’s just another political stunt to divert the attention of the American voter.
