Democrats are consistently evolving unsettling situations into major scandals, and they did not hold back when it came to blaming Trump for the Charlottesville riots.
Many claimed President Trump did not respond in a timely manner to the violence in the Virginia city, while some simply did not like what he had to say– including one liberal in particular.
Enraged over President Trump’s professional and presidential response to the Charlottesville events, Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski is rallying for impeachment once more.
On her morning talk show, Brzezinski claimed President Trump’s time in office is not only a “low point in America’s history”, but that “blood and carnage” will be on his hands if he is not impeached.
The Morning Joe host claimed President Trump should be removed under the direction of the 25th Amendment.
“White House cabinet and staff must speak out, step down or act decisively or it will be on their hands too. #it’s time,” she tweeted on Wednesday. “With his own words TRUMP has created a permissive climate for violence. The blood and carnage will be on his hands. #shame.”
She had previously tweeted: “Is it time? #25thamendment #GodBlessAmerica.”
Brzezinski is referring to this provision in the 25th Amendment:
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.
While the political left claims Trump’s situation falls under the jurisdiction of the 25th Amendment, it was originally enacted if a president fell ill or was incompetent to fulfill his position for other severe reasons.
No evidence has been found to support Trump’s removal under this amendment.
As the Atlantic pointed out, though, this would be “a dangerous path” to go down because “the provision was intended for situations in which the president has become too ill to work, and was enacted after John F. Kennedy’s assassination, to answer the question of what might have happened if Kennedy were kept alive but unable to handle the duties of office. There have been other, similar situations in the past, like that of Woodrow Wilson, who was for months incapacitated by a stroke.”
“But there’s no evidence that anything has happened to Trump since the election that has changed his fitness for office. He shows no new signs of illness. If Trump is unfit for the presidency in the estimation of Douthat or anyone else, he is no less fit than he was on November 8, 2016, when voters had their chance to render a verdict,” the Atlantic concluded. “Pressing for the 25th Amendment solution in this case, with no evidence of a change in cognition or health, is de facto pressing for Mike Pence and the Cabinet to nullify the will of the voters.”
Mika Brzezinski’s comments seemed fueled by her personal disdain for the President, as bad blood boils between the two after Brzezinski taunted Trump and the size of his hands on her morning show. Trump replied in turn by tweeting about her recent “face-lift”.
