Don't you wish you had come up with the play on words on the Post's cover?

 

And this, which sums it up nicely....

And there is no provision for removing a president just because Pelosi is offended by his existence.

Nancy Pelosi’s latest coup-coup nonsense

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says her team is “going to be talking about the 25th Amendment” on Friday — the latest in a long line of nutty Democratic fantasies of getting rid of President Trump.

 

Pelosi, who hasn’t actually talked to the prez in months, claims to think he’s mentally off thanks to his COVID-19 treatments (or something). Yet she’s only exposing (again) Democrats’ own Trump Derangement Syndrome, because this potential coup is an obvious non-starter.

 

Trump’s “disassociation from reality would be funny if it weren’t so deadly,” she claimed — just because he’s made his usual fast-changing threats and offers over the relief bill that Democrats have stalled in Congress.

 

The 25th Amendment allows for temporary ouster of a disabled president, but it requires the active participation of a majority of his Cabinet — or the Republican Senate’s assent to setting up some other body to rule on his fitness. The prez just gave an hour-long interview to Maria Bartiromo — pretty compelling proof that he’s clicking on all cylinders. And there is no provision for removing a president just because Pelosi is offended by his existence.

 

Pelosi’s noise follows a host of forlorn Democratic get-Trump plans, which hit their apex with her ramshackle impeachment show early this year — even as the coronavirus was quietly hitting these shores.


The kookie conspiracies go all the way back to late 2016, when Dems tried to organize enough “faithless electors” to give Hillary Clinton an Electoral College majority.

 

More direly, various Obamaites at the same time concocted the “Russian collusion” fantasy — ginning up an utterly phony Trump-Putin plot to steal the 2016 election. That one burned up endless White House time and fed vast left-wing paranoia, for years.

 

The flip side of this madness is liberals’ endless whining about their supposed fears for an “orderly transition” if Trump loses in November — even as Hillary Clinton publicly advises Joe Biden to never concede defeat. That presages a national version of 2018 losing Georgia candidate Stacey Abrams’ years-long insistence that she actually won.

 

Sorry, Nancy: It’s Democrats’ delusions that would be “funny” if they weren’t so deadly.

Background for those not paying attention:

 

Nancy Pelosi unveils bill to create 25th Amendment commission to analyze Trump

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday clarified her plans to pursue a 25th Amendment approach to strip President Trump of his presidential powers.

 

Pelosi and Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said in a press release that they will introduce a bill creating a commission to evaluate presidential mental and physical fitness.

 

The bill would establish a Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Powers and Duties of Office that would “enable Congress to help ensure effective and uninterrupted leadership in the highest office in the Executive Branch of government,” the release said.

 

The proposed composition of the commission was not immediately clear.

 

Pelosi (D-Calif.) teased at a Thursday morning press conference that she and her fellow Democrats are considering invoking the constitutional provision on presidential succession — a seemingly fantastical yearning among Trump opponents.

 

“Tomorrow. Come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment,” she said.

I believe she is on a mental decline like Joe is. 

 

I'm hoping that will be in the Republican backed petition to remove her from the speakership. 

 

They can use all this as example.

What the hell is she thinking? There is the election in a couple of months and she wants to pursue this? 

I know she wants this to be on his record just like she tried the Impeachment fiasco!

Seems like winning an election is a better way to replace the president. 

Unless your internal/private polling tells you that your guy is not winning the election.

 

For a party that is supposed to have it in the bag, has a 77% chance of winning, has the wagering markets "confirming" that, they are acting awfully crazy. 

 

Almost as if they are not as confident as our resident gadfly Moonpie.

Never thought I'd see the day where a bananna republic coup would be broadcast on live TV in this country but I'm watching it right now...

But the 25A requires the President to be impaired AT THE CURRENT TIME in order for there to be a removal from power. 

 

Pelosi seems to be fixated on when Trump new, in the past, he was actually no longer testing negative. She does not seem to care about his current condition, just when he was positive in the past. 

 

Meanwhile, you have the Morning Joe idiots comparing Trump's medically-supervised steroid regime with athletes shooting up anabolic steroids back in the 1980s. Talking about "roid rage" and trying to find examples of it in Trump's recent interviews and speeches. 

 

Apparently, according to Mika Scarborough, Trump suggesting that there is evidence in Russia-gate that goes all the way up to Biden and Obama is violent rhetoric and a sign of his being crazy enough for 25A. 

 

You cannot make this stuff up.

I like how they pretend to play up the anti-fascist angle while working tirelessly to dismantle the democratic process
