Writing About a Fantasy Trump Instead of a Real One

from The Daily Bell:

Don’t look now: It’s President Pence! Donald Trump can be deposed, even without impeachment … -Salon

Mainstream media is going well beyond general speculation over a Trump impeachment. They’re now speculating on numerous ways that Trump could be removed from office through the 25th amendment.

The idea is that Trump is not sane.

He is entirely enamored of himself and is running the presidency based on how the outside world sees his actions.

His behavior is nothing more than a fantastical response to this outside perception and has little to do with any logical, internal perspective.


The 25th Amendment was added to the Constitution after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and provides for the replacement of the vice president if the office becomes vacant. (So it led indirectly to the presidency of Gerald Ford, the only American president who was never elected to any national office.)

But Article 4 [of the 25th amendment] is about something else entirely:  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.

This article speculates that the 25 amendment under article four could be used to get rid of Trump because he was delusional and thus not entirely sane. It makes this argument in detail and is not written in a tongue and cheek kind of way.

The article spends a great deal of time analyzing Trump in a great deal of detail, which is unusual given that Trump has only been in office for a few days. In fact, the article is unusual because it digs up “facts” that are entirely based on rumor and innuendo.
