President Trump responded to Nancy Pelosi’s 25th amendment melt down today and knocked her clear off her high horse over her threat.
Pelosi’s new legislation has zero chance of going anywhere in the Senate and if by a miracle it passes Trump will veto it so this is a doomed effort.
Trump said, “Crazy Nancy is the one who should be under observation. They don’t call her Crazy for nothing!”
Earlier, Trump had retweeted Arizona House Rep. Andy Biggs, who said, “Congressional Democrats have not stopped their quest to remove President Trump from office since the day he was sworn into office, working night and day to overturn the will of Americans.
“Here is another installment of their pathetic series” and shared the Fox News article about her comment. It is TIME to remove Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House” he added.
From The Hill:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) will unveil a bill on Friday with Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), a constitutional law expert, that would create a commission to determine whether a president is fit for office amid concerns over President Trump becoming sick with COVID-19.
Pelosi’s office announced on Thursday that she and Raskin will formally introduce the bill at a news conference on Capitol Hill on Friday morning, hours after she hinted to reporters that “we’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment.”
It’s expected to reflect legislation that Raskin originally introduced in 2017 that would establish a commission to determine presidential fitness for office as outlined by the Constitution’s 25h Amendment, which outlines presidential removal procedures.
The 25th Amendment states that the vice president and a majority of either the president’s Cabinet “or of such other body as Congress may by law provide” can declare that they believe a president cannot fulfill his or her official duties. Raskin’s original bill would have established said “body” to be made up of physicians, psychiatrists and former public officials like former presidents or Cabinet secretaries selected by congressional leadership.
Pelosi says at her weekly press conference: “By the way, tomorrow — come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment.”— CBS News (@CBSNews) October 8, 2020
