Trump Blows A Gasket After Calls To Remove Him From Office Via the 25th Amendment Go Viral

White House sources say that Donald Trump is furious after calls to remove him from office via the 25 Amendment started trending on Twitter.

Jon Cooper tweeted:

Section 4 of the 25th Amendment states:
Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

As Think Progress correctly noted, the 25th Amendment chatter is a fantasy. This cabinet is never going to turn on Trump, and even if Congress could activate the 25th Amendment via legislation or a commission, the Executive Branch of the government (Trump and/or Pence) could veto it.

However, the thought that Trump is furious and being driven crazy by the 25th Amendment talk is reward enough. Reality won’t be denied. A majority of this country did not vote for Trump and want him removed from office ASAP.
