(NationalSentinel) In what is quickly becoming the latest excuse for Democrats to complain about President Donald Trump’s alleged instability, now they want to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove him from office unless he can “get a grip.” Talk about your sound-bite narratives.
As reported by The Hill last week:
Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) in a floor speech this week called for a review of the Constitution’s procedures for removing a president. He warned the 25th Amendment of the Constitution falls short when it comes to mental or emotional fitness for office.
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) during a weekend interview with CNN’s “State of the Union” said that “a few” Republican colleagues have expressed concern to him about Trump’s mental health.
And Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) plans to introduce legislation that would require the presence of a psychiatrist or psychologist in the White House.
Wow. Just who is unhinged here?

Democrats have already divided the nation by race, creed, ethnicity, religious beliefs, social and economic status - now they want to divide it by mental stability. That, of course, is inviting criticism that they’ve just gone too far.
“It’s divisive. The bottom line is, if Trump doesn’t succeed, we all fail. It’s time to give the guy a chance,” said Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-Tenn.).
Reps. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) and Mike Simpson (R-Idaho) both burst out laughing when told some Democratic colleagues were questioning Trump’s mental health.
“Are you serious?” Hunter asked. “Yeah, I don’t care what they say.”
“I think that’s a stretch,” Simpson said.
Oh, at least. So again, who is it that is really unhinged here - the president, who has been enough in command of his faculties to have amassed billions of dollars in fortune, or Democratic lawmakers unable to get over the loss of their corrupt candidate, Hillary Clinton, and accept the reality that she was beaten by a former reality TV star?
Too bad the 25th Amendment doesn’t mention anything about members of Congress.
