As we get closer to the election, Democrats from all corners are getting desperate.
After last night’s debate—where Mike Pence destroyed Harris—it seems they are trying a Hail Mary.
Nancy Pelosi has tried everything to undermine Trump and give her failing party a boost.
She opposed him, tore up his speeches, and impeached him over a phone call.
Now, seeing that Biden’s chances are slim to none, she is going for the most desperate move of all:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that Democrats will hold an event on Friday to discuss the 25th Amendment amid concerns over President Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis.
“Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow, come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment. But not to take attention away from the subject we have now,” she said in response to a question at a press conference regarding a possible coronavirus stimulus package.
Why It’s Important:
While speaking to a group of fans—I mean, the liberal media—Pelosi mentioned her party would be “discussing” the 25th Amendment soon.
As usual, the left appeared all but giddy at the notion—as if this means anything.
Liberals frequently point to the 25th Amendment as a way to “remove” the president. What they don’t tell you is that it requires the support of the president’s cabinet, the vice president, and the president himself.
Congress cannot use the 25th Amendment to forcibly remove the president. The only way that is possible is through impeachment—a process they already failed at.
Pelosi seems to be suggesting that they can “remove” Trump because of his COVID diagnosis. This, despite the fact that Trump had moderate symptoms (for a day) and has recovered in record time.
For what reason would Vice President Pence be willing to replace Trump over that? And how does Pelosi expect to convince President Trump—a man whom she has done nothing but upset—to willingly step down?
You see, Pelosi is counting on the liberal media to spread a false impression of this amendment. Under no circumstances can Pelosi “remove” Trump from office using the 25th Amendment without his consent.
This is a total waste of time. Not that Pelosi has done anything other than waste our time in recent years.
Even if it did work, she’d have Mike Pence to deal with. You know, the man that just humiliated Kamala Harris?
Does Pelosi even think about what she says before she says it?
- Nancy Pelosi said her party would be “discussing” the 25th Amendment tomorrow.
- The Amendment allows for a president to step down, with the consent of his VP.
- Pelosi already tried to remove the president via impeachment and failed.
