Today, Nancy Pelosi announced a 25th Amendment commission to rule on President Trump’s fitness for office while saying she wasn’t including President Trump – unless he wins re-election!
She cites a possible scenario: “if a president suffers a crippling physical or mental problem” – which let’s face it is much more likely to afflict Joe Biden than Donald Trump! James Woods is ticked.
This is a clear violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers. Pelosi’s antics so close to an election are tantamount to an insurrection, and at the very least a stunning demonstration of how dangerous radical socialist Democrats have become. https://t.co/qQAUfJUabd— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) October 9, 2020
Crazy Nancy said: The 25th Amendment creates a path if a president suffers a crippling physical or mental problem and is unable in the amendment, unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office and transfers his powers.
Specifically, Section 4 of the amendment empowers Congress to set up an independent body to confront such a crisis. Congress has a constitutional duty to lay out the process by which a president’s incapacity — and the president of any party — is determined.
This bill honors the duty by creating a standing commission of top former executive officials and medical experts selected in a bipartisan way. A president’s fitness for office must be determined by science and facts.
This legislation applies to future presidents. But we are reminded of the necessity of action by the health of the current president. With this bill, the Congress honors our oath to support and defend the Constitution and protect the American people. And we uphold our responsibility to preserve our Republic for generations to come.
Of course, President Trump may win re-election. Pelosi admitted that: “If the president wins election, yes, it would apply to him.”
