John R. HallThe 25th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America may be our only solution. It may have to be invoked to remove the 45th President of the United States and return America to sanity, to return reality to the Oval Office, to protect our Fourth Estate (the press), and to save our democracy.

 

President Donald J. Trump continues to display that he is “bonkers” and clinically insane (see Narcissistic Jingoism). He and reality are on opposing one-way streets expeditiously going faster and faster in opposite directions. The divide between reality and Trump is galactic in size.  He has proven this again and again, over and over. Each time he doubles down. Each time he raises the bar. He has left us with no alternative but to remove him from office because he is incapable of discharging the duties of the Office of President of the United States of America. He is nothing more than an unseemly sideshow barker. He is not protecting the Constitution of the United States of America. He is not defending us against enemies foreign or domestic. He is making America Unsafe Again.

 

I am writing this while watching Trump as he holds his version of the Nuremberg Rally in Melbourne, Florida. His eyes are crazed. His voice is full of vile. His followers are fixated, engrossed, transfixed, delusional, hoodwinked and bamboozled … just as a portion of Germany’s population was in the 1930s; remember, remember, see the similarities – and take decisive action before it is too late.

 

Trump has again demonized anyone, everyone, all entities that disagree with him. That resist him. That are blocking him from his ascension to dictator. He needs to be dealt with like an unruly child and be given a timeout. A very long timeout! He needs to be removed from office.

 

Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America 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.

While Vice President Pence is no bargain, and will not protect our rights either, at least he is not crazy. He is not hell bent on destroying our press or those who disagree with him. He does not want to make love to Russian dictator Putin. God, or the Great Pumpkin, or Santa Claus, someone Better Bless America very soon … because time is running out.
