Hitting back against the House Speaker after her stunt in unveiling legislation that would give Congress the power to remove the president under the auspices of the 25th Amendment, President Donald Trump said Sunday that Nancy Pelosi couldn’t even pass the simple cognitive tests that judge whether or not a person is suffering from mental impairment.
“I don’t think she could pass basic aptitude tests, personally. I really don’t. I don’t believe it,” Trump said on Fox News.
He went on to suggest that Pelosi’s proposal to form a congressional committee that could remove an unfit president had more to do with his opponent than him.
“Well, I think she’s talking about Joe Biden, because to be honest with you, he’s the one that’s got the problem,” he said. “It’s obvious to anybody that watches him speak.”
On Thursday, Pelosi teased the media, asking reporters to return to Capitol Hill on Friday. “We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment,” she promised.
The 25th Amendment, of course, provides an avenue for the president to be removed from power if he is unable to carry out his duties.
“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,” reads the amendment.
On Friday, Rep. Jamie Raskin introduced legislation that would give Congress additional power in that decision-making process.
“This is not about President Trump. He will face the judgment of voters. But he shows the need to create a process for future presidents,” Pelosi said.
But of COURSE it’s about President Trump, and we highly doubt that Pelosi and Raskin will bother pursuing this bill if Biden wins and they retain/gain control of Congress. They don’t care about passing this legislation; they just want to use this as another talking point – another excuse to try and delegitimize this president, just as they’ve been trying to do from the moment he assumed power.
When and if these lunatics actually get full control of Washington…it’s going to be an ugly sight to see.
