Republicans and Trump have hammered crazy Nancy Pelosi after the House speaker announced an “unprecedented plan” to remove Trump via the 25th Amendment.
In an extraordinary move, Pelosi on Thursday said she would push for a commission to be set up to allow Congress to sack President Trump via the 25th amendment which allows for the removal of a “sitting president” if he’s deemed unfit for office.
Earlier in the day, reporters asked Nancy Pelosi if she thought it was time to invoke the 25th Amendment.
But just before 5 pm, Pelosi and Maryland Congressman Jamie Raskin announced that Democrats were introducing legislation in the House seeking to “remove” Trump from office.
The Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Powers and Duties of Office Act will be presented to lawmakers on Friday.
The news infuriated Republicans, including the president himself.
Following the news, Trump tweeted: Crazy Nancy is the one who should be under observation. They don’t call her crazy for nothing!
Speaking to Fox on Friday, Kayleigh McEnany said: It’s an absurd proposition from Pelosi. The only one who needs to look at the 25th Amendment is Pelosi herself. There’s no reason to consider it for the president but maybe for Pelosi.
GOP Congressman Doug Collins noted the House Speaker’s previous attempts to “remove” Trump from the White House.
@SpeakerPelosi will stop at NOTHING to take down @realDonaldTrump, he tweeted. First, it was the Russia hoax, then sham impeachment. Now she’s trying to invoke the 25th amendment because he fully recovered from the COVID-19? We won’t let her get away with it.
Republican Rep Andy Biggs also said: Congressional Democrats have not stopped their quest to remove President @realDonaldTrump 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.
Trump’s son, Don Jr, also slammed Pelosi, noting her infamous visit to a hair salon that had been closed to the public due to COVID-19.
The person who is third in line with the nuclear codes but was setup by her hair salon wants to have a conversation about the 25th amendment. Good one, he tweeted.
GOP Rep Mark Green said: I wouldn’t put it past @SpeakerPelosi to stage a coup. She has already “weaponized impeachment”, what’s to keep her from weaponizing the 25th amendment?
The 25th Amendment works like this: A president sends a letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and President pro tempore of the Senate that he is “unable to discharge” the powers and duties of his office.
Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress, the amendment states.
