President Donald Trump stated last week that he doesn’t believe the effort by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to convene a committee to talk about the 25th Amendment has anything to do with removing him, but with potentially removing a President Joe Biden should he win in November.
“Crazy Nancy Pelosi is looking at the 25th Amendment in order to replace Joe Biden with Kamala Harris,” Trump said. “The Dems want that to happen fast because Sleepy Joe is out of it!!!”
He later suggested, while hosting Rush Limbaugh’s show as part of a “virtual rally” event, that Democrats are desperate to reassure themselves that they will have leadership even if Biden is eventually judged unfit to hold office.
“Let’s assume the Democrats are gonna vote for, you know, sleepy Joe, which is ridiculous because Joe shouldn’t be a candidate,” Trump said. “Joe is in no condition to be a candidate. We can say it nicely or we can say it badly. The 25th Amendment that crazy Nancy’s playing around with — she’s gone crazy, she’s a nut job — but this 25th Amendment, I think they put it in so they can get Kamala in.”
You know, while this might sound a bit far-fetched, there’s tons of actual evidence to support that Biden’s mental state is not up to snuff when it comes to performing the duties of the president. With all of the clips that exist showing him unable to complete sentences, forgetting questions, and all sorts of other clues, it’s not hard to understand why Pelosi might be trying to prepare for removing him and getting Kamala Harris in office if they defeat Trump.
They probably knew that Harris stood no chance against Trump, thus, they pushed for Joe Biden and got him. He’s a figurehead. The real shot caller is Harris.
Indeed, despite Pelosi’s remarks at several conferences over the course of the last week, actually wielding the 25th amendment — which provides a process by which the president can be removed from office and replaced with the Vice President if he is judged unfit by members of his Cabinet or a majority of both houses of Congress — would be next to impossible. The final decision would be left up to the Vice President, Mike Pence, in any case, and Pence is unlikely to stage his own coup against his boss.
Despite this, Pelosi formed the “bipartisan” Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Powers and Duties of Office Act.”
Convenient timing, right?
