Democrats are trying out a new angle to undermine Trump

Democrats are floundering.

Hardly anyone is talking about “collusion” with Russia anymore.

That’s why some Democrats are pivoting to a new assault on Trump that could undermine the very foundation of our government.

The 25th Amendment.

Added to the Constitution in 1967, the idea was to clarify the wording in Article II, Section 1, Clause 6 of the Constitution, which does not expressly state whether the Vice President becomes the President or Acting President when the President dies, resigns, or is removed from office.



Since then, it’s only been invoked six times. Three during the vacancies created by the Nixon Administration’s resignations, and three other times when Presidents underwent medical procedures requiring anesthesia.

Now, House Democrats are considering weaponizing the 25th Amendment in an effort spearheaded by Rosa DeLauro (D-CT).

They want Trump declared “mentally unfit” and use the Amendment to replace him.

And they’re getting help from partisan psychiatrists to do so.

The Washington Times reports on this plot:

Lawmakers will gather for dinner Wednesday night at the Washington home of Rep. Rosa DeLauro, Connecticut Democrat, in a “salon-like” setting to hear from Dr. Bandy Lee, a Yale University professor and forensic psychiatrist who believes Mr. Trump is “dangerous” and requires a mental-capacity exam.
….
Democratic lawmakers have been raising questions about Mr. Trump’s mental fitness since last spring. Dr. Lee, who has co-authored a book asserting the president’s unfitness for office, held a similar meeting last month with about a dozen House and Senate Democrats.

In an interview with Vox, Dr. Lee cited several reasons for her concern that Mr. Trump is a danger to the public, including the “sheer frequency of his tweets [that] seemed to reflect the frantic state of mind he was entering, and his retweeting some violent anti-Muslim videos showed a concerning attraction to violence. And then there were the belligerent nuclear threats [toward North Korea].”

The tactic is not without its critics though, as the article points out.


Dr. Lee is taking some professional criticism for offering her opinions on what she calls the president’s “mental health crisis.” Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, former president of the American Psychiatric Association, called it “political partisanship disguised as patriotism.”

“More than any other medical specialty, psychiatry is vulnerable to being exploited for partisan political purposes and for bypassing due process for establishing guilt, fault, and fact,” Dr. Lieberman wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine. “

While citizens have an obligation to speak out against government injustice, he said, “that does not mean that psychiatrists can use their medical credentials to brand elected officials with neuropsychiatric diagnoses without sufficient evidence and appropriate circumstances. To do so undermines the profession’s integrity and credibility.”

  1. 9 million hard working American tax payers money has been wasted on Mueller’s dead horse beating of this fake Trump-Russian collusion. Now they want to waste more tax payer money trying to prove Trump is mentally incapacitated. They have only talked psychiatrists who never even met Trump face to face.If any president was mentally incompetent it was Obama.

  2. The Democrats have jumped from one thing to another trying to bring TYrump down or stifle his platform from being implimented . Quite frankly the whole thing is more than transparent. Its time they cut the crap

    • DALAURO IS A REP FROM OUR STATE…WE DON’T HAVE A BUDGET AND WE ARE A FULLY DEMORAT STATE NEAR BANKRUPTCY…..BUT HEY, THEY COULD CARE LESS AS LONG AS THEIR LIVES AREN’T INTERRUPTED….SHE , BLUMMY, AND THE REST NEED TO GO.

  3. This “person” pictured above looks totally demented and should retired now!
    Her clenched fists and enraged demeanor are dead giveaways about her own mental
    problems. Dems are always attempting to undermine our legally elected POTUS.
    If there was anyone who needed to be examined by psychiatrists it should be some
    on the left side of the aisle. There are plenty of Demoncrats who should be looked
    at for being dangerous. Pilosi, Schumer,”cowgirl”Wilson,Maxi “waterhead”Waters,
    Al Green,both Clintons,Obamas,Mueller,Lyaretta”tarmac”Lynch,Comey,Strozk,Page, and
    the list goes on and on ad nauseum. Leave our President alone. He does just fine!

  4. I would like to see these democratic bastard Are liberals go 1 on 1 With the president and trying to discredit him face-to-face I guarantee you 95% would lose immediately and the other 5% wouldn’t even be smart enough to get in the ring, because most of them have never had a real job that’s why they try so hard to get into politics and become a congressman or a senator forgot all about the big bucks if you don’t Believe this then check out a congressman or a senator pay celery and then later check out their bank accounts and or offshore account and I believe the results will speak for itself , It’s amazing how much money can be made from lobbyist and special interest. Nuff said

  5. Hey, zzTOPS! Mizz OOOO needs an optirectomy! Main vein between her eyeballs and asshole needs a snippin’ because she has a real shitty outlook on the way things ARE! Capiche?!😂

  6. HEY DEE..DID YOUR PARENTS HAVE ANY CHILDREN THAT ARENT BRAIN DEAD?ALMOST EVERYTHING YOU POST IS LAUGHABLE..YOU ARE THE TYPICAL STUCK UP LIBERAL THAT THINKS YOU ARE SMART..YOU SOUND ALMOST UNSTABLE AT TIMES..WHAT HAPPENED WITH THESE POSTS?DID YOU FORGET YOUR BIBLE?

  7. I think this “Psychiatrist and the Dems meeting with her need to be confined to a mental institute themselves..forced into straight jackets and in solitary confinement so as to keep them away from the populations. That dingbat from Connecticut should have been institutionalized years ago. She already looks like death warmed over.

  8. Every time something comes up about Trump it is a different democrat that don’t know what they talking about and i find they are uglyer than a arm load of assholes

    • Ugly is not the word. This broad is sinful looking. I almost threw up. I mean, I would not even allow Rosa DeLauro in my house. Now I have to go take a shower. All of a sudden I feel dirty.

  9. It appears that the existence of Trump is causing all the swamp creatures to come swarming out of the woodwork. I have long suspected that any semblance of the truth requires one to take anything that a liberal says and spin it another 180 degrees past THEIR spin to arrive at anything resembling the truth. With soamy liberals and RINOs now spouting gibberish, there seems to be more than enough evidence to supporty theory.

  10. These people think President Trump is “MENTAL” but what do they think of Maxine Watters, Pelosi, Warren? This is like Mentally Disturbed are claiming because someone is not like they are..they must be Mental! We do live in a very crazy world, but Trump actually WORKED for a living and this is happening in the WH also, something in GOV they have not seen in our age! Dems have no one so they spin their wheels like in soft sand and keep spinning instead of find solution to actually accomplish something! Money does not buy our votes and we see clearly what is happening! There still are some who follow the drum beats but soon they too if not too far gone will see a GREAT AMERICA under President Trump!

    • Cricket: You are so right! And we in Connecticut have had the “pleasure’ of having Rosa DeLauro (a clone of Nancy Pelosi and Maxine Waters) be in office for decades. We are hoping a strong Republican becomes governor – but, unfortunately, the Dems seem to come back like a recurrent toothache! Rosa is way past her expiration date; and the liberals in New Haven County keep voting her in! TERM LIMITATIONS!

    • I agree with you Cricket,. They are all having a delusion of Granduer plus persecution equals schizophrenia .! That means they all mentally sick in the head that they need a psychiatrist .. how 😔 sad

  11. The Democrats are so hysterical about Hillary losing, that they are projecting their hysteria onto President Trump. A mentally disturbed person thinks the people around that person are also disturbed. It is a form of paranoia.

    • In my professional opinion I think the mentallY ill Democrats and Liberals are the ones that need to be under Attack! They have been accusing, lying, saying, and doing crazy things for over a year now with zero proof!!! They are the ones who are mentally ill! This is like the pot calling the kettle black!!! They are all NUTS and the American people know it!! TIME TO GROW UP people!!! We are sick and tired of your insanity!!!!!

  12. Democrats are a bunch of idiots, Why don’t they go to work for them that elected you. Trump is solid. DNC wasted a year regarding Russian collusion … Put Hillary in jail for that Russian deal . Like money laundering.

  13. Time has come for the Citizens of our Great Nation to band together and SUE the DNC because they are OFFENDING US by their mere exsistence. We need to start filing Class Action Lawsuits and just sue them to death and George Soros as well. We Conservatives put up with eight years of Hell and finally voted them out of power and look at what the Demoncraps gave us in t=retur for voting them out, we get ANTFIA and BLACK LIVES MATTERS attacking and rioting because they didn’t get their way.

    • Time to reenact the law on SEDITION:
      SEDITION:

      ,Sedition is the crime of revolting or inciting revolt against government. However, because of the broad protection of frees peech under the First Amendment, prosecutions for sedition are rare. Nevertheless, sedition remains a crime in the United States under 18 U.S.C.A. § 2384 (2000),
       a federal statute that punishes seditious conspiracy, and 18 U.S.C.A. § 2385(2000),

       which outlaws advocating the overthrow of the federal government by force.
       Generally, a person may be punished forsedition only when he or she makes statements that create a Clear and Present Danger to rights that the government may lawfully protect 
      (schenck v. united states, 249 U.S. 47, 39 S. Ct. 247, 63 L. Ed. 470 [1919]).

    • This is the first, maybe not the only, well said/written response. WE the PEOPLE THAT VOTED TRUMP/PENCE INTO THE WHITE HOUSE NEED TO START UTILIZING OUR RIGHTS AND START DEFENDING BOTH THE PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT. WRITING COMMENTS JUST ISN’T CUTTING IT ANYMORE. Looking at the picture and many, many other pictures and videos of HIGHLY INSANE LIBERALS AND LIBERAL POLITICIANS, tells us THEY ARE TRULY INSANE THEMSELVES.

  14. If anyone needs a psychiatrist it would be the left! Look at some of the stunts they have pulled and got caught! And they call our president mentally unfit?! Seriously?! Every time Pelosi talks about him she calls him Bush! She doesn’t even know his name after a year really Nancy!? Lol

    • Susan, By watching Nancy, which is hard to do, I really think that she has Alzheimer’s. She has lost weight, and one of the first things to go is their sense of smell. Think about the way she looks now, her hair gets all straggly, they lose the concept of time. A pharmacist in the DC area said he was delivering Alz. meds Congress. I do hair and have done a few that have had this, and I know what I’m seeing. She really needs to retire.

  15. Just like Inspector Harry Callahan said, ‘Go ahead, make my day’. This is exactly why the Founders made the right to bear arms the Second Amendment. MAGA.

  16. Those idiots are in a scurvy trying to impeach President Trump for showing them up.. gotta get it done before their voters get a job a raise and more money to keep on their income taxes. When that happens they might start to think for themselves and see how the democrats have been lying to them all along..

    • One of the things the DNC. can’t stand is Trump has a vision of what our country should
      be and it kills them that most of his vision is exactly what the majority like.

  17. A telling case can be made that it’s more than a few Congressional Democrats and their media cohorts who should undergo strict psych exams! They have such overpowering afflictions of “Trump derangement” that they are beyond merely being obsessive, they are consumed. If Obama had been subjected to the same ongoing attacks that have been directed at Trump, the Democrats wold have declared martial law to “protect the Republic”. I would predict that if by some inconceivable means these seditious SOBs were to succeed, there are millions of us who are so fed up and angry with what they are doing, it would very possibly result in another civil war. The liberals ought to bear in mind that we are the ones that have all those guns, and about whom they constantly warn about the inherent danger we pose to the safety and good order of society at large!

    • The meeting the DEMS are having with a “psychiatrist” is totally illegal as their so called “psychiatrist” has not legal license to PRACTICE! Talk about Sedition, this is a fine example and all in meeting should be arrested!

  18. Trump has never been examined by a Dr. for this so how would any of these NUTS know?
    I think our President is smarter than ALl Democrats combined and most on the Republican side.

    • Trump has not a full physical in years by his own admission. He saw a doctor during the campaign but no lab testing was done.

      Behavior indicates a lot. Some are concerned by his behavior. Remember Reagan had Alzheimer’s during his last term. This was confirmed by his son. Trump’s equating his behavior with Reagan is not real smart even if he went to Penn. Most writers and readers of this site are NOT personal friends of Trump.

      Soon Trump will have a physical at Bethesda. The results may be made public. Only time will tell. But his behavior reflects his health and interests. Tweeting and watching cable TV take several hours a day according to the WH.

      • and where did you get the idea he sits and does that for “several hours”? Obviously you believe fiction books with made up stories as your words are same as in that book! President Trump multitask as any builder learns to do if they are to be successful! I have yet to see anyone in Senate or Congress or even Presidency of past to do that! NOTHING got moved in Government for the good of the people in 8 years alone of Obama, except missing $$, Guns, and LIVES (what is the body bag count now of those around Clintons?) Trump plays golf, sure WHILE NEGOTIATING with World Leaders or other important people to get things done! It is called a relaxed atmosphere for them, much like dining out! President Trump has accomplished in one day what anyone else had to use weeks to do! Remember, MSM is more concerned in how many sodas President Trump drinks, not what he has done for America! Evil will ALWAYS hate Good! Trump is Good! Americans can not be bought anymore or taken advantage of any more!

  19. 2018 election is a very important the only way to make America great again is to make Congress great again get rid of the rhinos the swamp and the Democrats or we are in big trouble

  20. President Trump is solid as a rock. A man of honor, which can’t be said of the democrats. The fact is the President talks the language of the common man. The democrats, and the swamp say a whole lot of words that means nothing. They are like a jockey that shows up for a race; got the saddle, but no horse.

    • The only ones that are not mentally stable are the ones working in the Democrats. They either rig polls to have them win, have illegals vote for them dead people, having felonies, and have help by rino Republicans, these Democrats need to get that 25th amendment and impeach themselves since they work in the wrong country.

        • Dee keep thinking that way..oh BTW send me your money you get from the TAX CUT that NO DEMOCRAT voted for you to have! Remember, they don’t want you to have it! The want you to give to THEM the RICH DEMS (they are ones screaming it give the rich more money? Why are they screaming since they are the “rich”???) BUT make sure you give it BACK TO THE REPUBLICANS who voted to have it…the DEMS don’t want it..remember this…don’t drink the koolade before you give back the money! Keep your eyes on the swaying watch,,,you are getting sleepy…sleepy….sleepy..

  21. I agree with #1 Statesman Patriot: I would say that woman with her fists clinched needs a mental health check-up!!! I think it is disgusting what these crazy Democrats are doing. Their just making fools of themselves!!! I hope all of them fall on their faces!! I’m so tired of all their nasty B.S.. I don’t know how our President puts up with all the lies, and corruption. Most old Obama people should be fired, including FBI,CIA,NSA, and anyone else who is hindering our President. I can’t waite until all the Democrat crooks are arrested, and go to prison.

  22. Time to drain thew swamp! If the Democrats cannot or will not, legislate with the Republicans, vote them out, recall them and block them from returning to Congress in either the House or Senate. Recall anyone trying to reintroduce any investigation, probe, or collusion theory, or claim that any law is suddenly UINCONSTITUTIONAL!

  23. Liberalism in itself is a mental illness and should be adequate reason to prohibit any of them from holding public office.
    90%+ of all criminals in our jails and prisons are liberals.
    Get rid of liberals and we could nearly eradicate mental illness and most crimes.

  24. This is just another in the long list of bullshit from the demorats. They are so stupid it must be painful to look at themselves in the mirror every morning! All this talk about unfit for this and unfit for that is a trademark for the entire liberal/communist cult! You dumbasses don’t seem to understand that you’re accusations are meaningless unless a Psychiatrist has personally met with him face to face and diagnosed him as “unfi” by mental illness. Which all of you know tons about mental defects as all of you are!!!

  25. DONALD TRUMPS I.Q. IS HIGHER THAN ALL PAST PRESIDENTS THIS IS A FACT ,THE SENILE CONGRESSMEN AND WOMEN NEED TO BE PUT OUT TO PASTEUR. TERM LIMITS , TERM LIMITS GET THEM THE HELL OUT OF WASHINGTON DRAIN THAT FILTHY SWAMP

  26. What a bunch of losers. This so called expert needs to have a psychological evaluation done on him by a Conservative (normal) psychologist not another nutcase.

  27. OK, so they have nothing on the RUSSIA SHT! Now they are going after his Mental State! Total BS. And when that doesn’t work? What next? Tends to look like the situation that happened back in the 60’s with JFK. I certainly hope that never happens! The DEMRATS are such a bunch of Criminals. That’s why I always say: NEVER VOTE FOR A DEMRAT!

  28. TERM LIMITS FOR ALL OF CONGRESS AND THEY ARE THE ONES THAT NEED TO BE EVALUATED BY A PHYSICHIATRIST, MOST OF THEM ARE REALLY SENILE, THEY LOST THE ELECTION THAT THEY TRIED TO CHEAT THERE WAY INTO AND NOW THEY ARE LIKE SPOILED CHILDREN GIVE THEM SOME COOKIES AND MILK ROTTEN SPOILED CHILDREN

    • Convention of States is the only way you’re going to get term limits, as with the current system they would have to vote on it and they would never approve term limits on themselves. But with a convention of states you could be messing with the Constitution. Take your choice. We just have to show up IN NUMBERS that cannot be overruled by the illegals.

      • Term limits does not guarantee GOP will be in control. It just means your favorites will have to go also.

        How many terms is a limited amount. I, 2, 3′ 10. Even RYAN would be gone with a 3 term limit.

        • You are so RIGHT! Term limits for all! Serving as a Senator or Congressperson is NOT A CAREER JOB to start with according with the Constitution and rules of law! They are to be servants to the people who voted them in and now they seem to think they are above the law,,INCLUDING PAUL RYAN and many other GOP types! This ideology is not lawful that most think they have it as a career and deserve better of everything like health, money, retirement too! They need to be put back into the same system they vote for Americans to live under..BET THINGS WOULD CHANGE REALLY FAST WHEN THEY HAVE TO LIVE AS EVERYONE ELSE TOO! TERM LIMITS is for ALL!

      • If We the People took voting SERIOUSLY, and prosecuted and extirpated all fraud connected, term limits are automatic at the moment any elected official fails to do his or her duty to us. Just VOTE THEM OUT.

  29. The ‘peach’ in impeachment just got frozen solid with the “bomb cyclone” and we Conservatives have our own bomb cyclone to freeze jackass liberals in their tracks! TRUMP…1 year down…7 to go! And 7 is ALWAYS lucky on the roll-out! MAGA! AMERICA FIRST!

    • Trump is already one of the oldest Presidents ever when inaugurated he was 71.5 years old. Add 8 years, he will be almost 80 when he leaves office. Does that make him old enough to be possibly senile?

    • You so right Pammy Jay! Dee our President Trump keeps a very active mind and is very clear headed and when he becomes 80 his mind actually will be as good as a 60 yr old! He is way smarter than me even! SO you are saying that in 15 years I will be too old for anything? But I think your math is a bit off too! he won’t be 80 after his full 8 years in the White House! But ALMOST yes and they way you mention that makes it seem that is too old to serve anything..if you want to go there then why do the DEMS have way too old people in Senate and Congress? If you think ALMOST 80 when leaves the White House is so old..the Senate and Congress are the people MAKING THE LAWS YOU LIVE UNDER and many of them are older than that!

  30. What kind of actual doctor would ever diagnosed the patient with that even seeing the patient?? NO CREDIBLE Professional would ever do such a thing!!!
    I think the doctors and the people who are trying to analyze the President’s, emotional and mental well-being, really need to take a look in the mirror at themselves!! No real, honorable, credible, trustworthy, educated, professional person would ever do such a thing!!!!

    • Look at the picture of the woman who is the psychiatrist. SHE looks deranged, a typical Democrat operative in their very old game of lies and deceit to hold office in order to steal from the population.

    • The meeting the DEMS had with a “psychiatrist” is with someone CLAIMING to be one without a license! Remember..everything with the DEMS are FAKE! They have Fake voters, doctors, news, laws, they live in a total FAKE WORLD in their minds! One even said getting more money in our own pockets (the tax cut) we are all going to die! Do you know anyone who has due to getting more money? Remember they said ECONOMY would DIE if Trump was president? UH LOOKS LIKE IT IS DOING BETTER THAN GREAT! Remember Obama saying no way to bring jobs back to the USA? UHHHH AGAIN WE ARE AND BETTER THAN EVER! When will the DEM Voters see they being scammed by their own Democrat Leaders? They want to keep their “people” suppressed and not be able to succeed and think for themselves! Remember at the “Protest” when media would try to talk to the “chanters” and ask why they back their group, the “leader” would come and pull them away so they can’t talk! WHY? Because they don’t want that person the follower of their orders to think for themselves! CAN’T THEY SEE THIS??? COME ON PEOPLE! LOOK AROUND!

    • ALL we need to do is to vote them out — the rest will take care of itself when they cannot cover their lies by being the only prosecutors ( and not willing to prosecute their OWN crimes) as they have for so many years. Just vote for people who actually DO represent us, and if they fail vote in another.

  31. THE DEMOCRATS ARE BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY GEORGE SOROS, HE IS AN EVIL CRAZY MAN , THE DEMOCRATS USED TO BE A GOOD PARTY THEY ARE NOTHING BUT THUGS AND GANGSTERS AND THEY ARE COMMINISTS

  32. I think, and most people around me, think that the audacity of the hypocritical democrats to bring up mental health, is laughable! We just had the first black potus, and the cocaine he snorted in eight years will probably kill him in a few years! Vice Potus grinnin Joe is a sexual-predator! Michael is a man! Those girls are rented girls because correct me if I’m wrong, trannies who are men, can’t have children, even by Hollywood standards!

  33. They don’t have anything left to throw at Trump, so they trot out an expert and have the expert explain narcissism and automatically you’re supposed to apply every aspect of narcissism to Trump and then artfully turn it into reasons for impeachment and removal from office. At least they’ll feel so intellectual and superior while doing it.
    The next step is assassination.
