Dear Mitch McConnell, I must thank you for your valiant efforts to block two Senate bills designed to reduce election interference.

We’ve long known and appreciated your world-class obstructionism, and now your even more important efforts to help the Russians reelect Donald Trump for a second term as America’s “I alone can fix it” supremely stable genius.

May the new “Trumphighkneekis” Party live into perpetuity.

Section 4 of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment allows the vice president and a majority of the Cabinet to recommend the removal of the president in cases where he is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office,” and allows the House and Senate to confirm the recommendation over the president’s objection by two-thirds vote. Douthat argued that the Amendment should be invoked to stop what he calls a “childish president” who is unfit for office and who is unlikely to be impeached.

PS: Ross Douthat became the most prominent advocate of using the Twenty-Fifth Amendment to remove Donald Trump from office.

the truth does hurt.

THis president knows no bounds. He is personally above the law and exempt from following parts of the Constitution he doesn't like. He is essentially untouchable. He's getting all the ducks in line for overstepping the 22. Cookie is blabbing the truth.

Thanks for sharing, Mike. Do you have something intelligent to offer? Can you defend the 3.1 million cut in food stamps to namely working families with children living on the edge. What about separating children and confining then on US soil in deplorable conditions condemned by the UN and human rights organizations? Let's discuss national politics? It would serve you to engage your mind intelligently? Personal attacks and diversions are wearing thin in the real world.

Questioning someone's lack of intelligence in this discussion is a personal attack Branson. If the UN were concerned about deplorable conditions and human rights they should address the issues in those countries where illegal immigrants are fleeing. If America were violating human rights and holding illegal immigrants in deplorable conditions have another country step up and accept these poor immigrants and show America how to properly spend billions on compassion.

Mike

Yeah! and he's a fine one, eh Cookie?

It would please me greatly an if Mike would add something to the issues readers, Letters to the Editors, and commenters are discussing. These are issues America is facing. Purely personal attacks chill the terms of use of the HDS.

Branson Hunter

Mike, I believe that even prior to his second term he won't step down even if a democrat wins in 2020. There are big loopholes that give this president unparalleled powers to accomplish such a nefarious plans. He's going to challenge him?

Branson Hunter

excuse... should read "who" is going to challenge him.
