    Gordon Humphrey: It’s time to relieve Trump of the powers of the presidency
    Thursday, August 10, 2017
    Dear Rep. Kuster: President Trump’s threat to rain down “fire and fury” on North Korea is like pouring gasoline on a fire. It’s crazy.
    Donald Trump is impaired by a seriously sick psyche. His sick mind and reckless conduct could consume the lives of millions. The threat of nuclear war is steeply on the rise.

    “Sick of mind”: ex-GOP senator says Trump must be removed before he can start nuclear war


    Aug 11, 2017, 9:40am EDT


    A former Republican senator is calling on Congress to remove President Donald Trump from office because he believes Trump’s “sick psyche” dramatically increases the odds of nuclear war.

    Gordon Humphrey, who represented New Hampshire for two terms in the US Senate from 1979 until 1990, published an open letter on Thursday urging his state’s congressional delegation to support the Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity Act, which would create a commission to determine whether the president is mentally fit.

    It would be best to have everyone who is running for president to visit the same (independent and impartial) doctor and have the results of their medical evaluations published for the public to see.

    I would welcome the same thing in the UK too.

    Opinion

    What if President Trump can’t do the job? Here’s the Constitutional answer

    Originally published August 10, 2017 at 2:49 pm Updated August 10, 2017 at 2:59 pm

    What if the president really was mentally or physically disabled to the point that he or she couldn’t perform the job? The 25th Amendment has an answer to that question.


    […]
    The 25th Amendment also provides that if the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet (eight members) jointly declare that the president is unable to discharge his or her responsibilities, the vice president immediately assumes the powers and duties of the presidency.
    The president can attempt to resume those responsibilities, but if the vice president and the Cabinet stick to their guns, the question of the president’s incapacity is then bumped to Congress, which has 21 days to decide who’s in charge. If two-thirds of both the House and the Senate agree that the president is incapable of doing the job, then the vice president continues as “Acting President.” Otherwise, the president resumes the full powers and duties of office.
    Could this really happen with Trump? Might Vice President Pence ever decide that his boss was sufficiently “unhinged” to warrant action? Would the Cabinet and Congress back up Pence?
    Those are all political questions, not legal questions. But at least the Constitution has a legal answer.

    Gee, I guess this article and the next one didn't make it into Trump's twice-daily "good news" clippings folders?

    Relevant but O/T:
    The group "Duty to Warn," founded by influential psychotherapist Dr. John Gartner, has gathered nearly 60,000 signatures from mental health professionals on a petition calling for the removal of Donald Trump from office due to "serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of competently discharging the duties of President of the United States."

    Simply stunned by that number.

    Wow! Hooray for the 60,000 Mental health professionals who have signed:

    "We, the undersigned mental health professionals (please state your degree), believe in our professional judgment that Donald Trump manifests a serious mental illness that renders him psychologically incapable of competently discharging the duties of President of the United States. And we respectfully request he be removed from office, according to article 4 of the 25th amendment to the Constitution, which states that the president will be replaced if he is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office."

    He was obviously insane before the great unwashed voted him into office. They will defend anything he does.

    I wouldn't say "unwashed," but definitely uneducated and unenlightened.

    Or you could replaced 'the unwashed' with 'deplorables', because that is what a huge number of them are. Marching with torches? What do you call those people?

    Marching with made in China or some other Asian country torches. How lame is that?

    Even the KKK now has to have made in Asia stuff? Monkey see, monkey do.
