A House Democrats has introduced new bill to enhance the Constitution’s presidential removal procedures due to concerns over President Trump’s behavior.
When it comes about the Dems, there are no shortage of bad ideas, but this one, is so awful and impractical. Rep. Earl Blumenauer filed the bill that would ‘empower’ past Presidents and Vice Presidents of both parties to decide if the POTUS Donald Trump is fit to be in office.
The Hill reports, “It is hard to imagine a better group to work with the vice president to examine whether the president is able to discharge the duties of the office. When there are questions about the president’s ability to fulfill his or her constitutional responsibilities, it is in the country’s best interest to have a mechanism in place that works effectively, [sic]” Rep. Earl Blumenauer said in a statement.
Blumenauer’s proposal is caused over concerns that the Constitutional Amendment, adopted 50 years ago, would fall short in cases of emotional or mental incapacity. But we can all agree that there are no issues with Trump’s mind, it’s just Blumenauer’s. He is the one that blames Trump and the Americans who elected him, instead of accepting him.
This typical Democrat is worried that the Constitution’s 25th Amendment, which says that Vice President assumes the Oval Office in the event that a president is removed from office, dies or resigns.
Otherwise, the Vice President and the majority of Cabinet officers can declare together that the President is unfit to serve. Only at such case, the Vice President will take over the office as President.
Blumenauer also assumed that it wouldn’t be effective if a mentally unstable President fired all the Cabinet officials. He also argued that they might be pressured to stand by the president no matter what.
“Because the cabinet can be fired by the president, there is a natural bias that would make them reluctant to acknowledge the president’s inability to serve. It’s time to revisit and strengthen the Amendment and make sure there is a reliable mechanism in place if the president becomes unable to discharge the powers and duties of office,” Blumenauer said.
Ever since Donald Trump took the office in January, so many Democratic lawmakers have openly raised concerns about Trump’s psychological state, and if he is able to serve.
