In the course of modern political history, you’d be hard pressed to find a more pathetic example of partisan bickering than on the left side of America today.
The so-called “resistance” to President Trump is now in full swing, with all of the Bernie Bros and the Hillary Hussies lining to smother republicans and conservatives with hatred and vitriol at every possible turn. At this point, if Donald Trump so much as mentions his favorite flavor of ice cream, dessert companies will likely go out of their way to decrease production. It has become that trivial, pedantic, and childish.
The same holds true for the democratic lawmakers who are hellbent on seeing Donald Trump removed from office. Besides their obvious calls for impeachment, (which started days before the President’s inauguration), the leftists have been making a myriad of maneuvers that could possibly lead to a political coup. Their latest stunt has garnered the support of twelve democrats as of this publication.
“A Democratic congressman has proposed convening a special committee of psychiatrists and other doctors whose job would be to determine if President Donald Trump is fit to serve in the Oval Office.
“Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, who also teaches constitutional law at American University, has predictably failed to attract any Republicans to his banner.
“But the U.S. Constitution’s 25th Amendment does allow for a majority of the president’s cabinet, or ‘such other body as Congress may by law provide,’ to decide if an Oval Office occupant is unable to carry out his duties – and then to put it to a full congressional vote.
“Vice President Mike Pence would also have to agree, which could slow down the process – or speed it up if he wanted the levers of power for himself.
“The 25th Amendment has been around since shortly after the John F. Kennedy assassination, but Congress has never formed its own committee in case it’s needed to judge a president’s mental health.”
This would be truly unprecedented legal territory, but the democrats themselves have been emboldened by the unconventional nature of the Commander in Chief.
There is little chance that the democrats could legislatively move forward with the removal of The Donald from the Oval Office – even liberal deity John Oliver has admitted as much – but that hasn’t stopped them from openly fantasizing about an alternate path to a Pence presidency. Already this year we have been subjected to celebrities such as Kathy Griffin and musicians such as Moby using their clout and fame to act out the assassination of Donald Trump.
