Like the archetypal spurned autistic degenerate lingering at the outskirts of the high school prom, Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland has self-gratuitously sought to fan the hysterical flames of the Left which cannot quite wrap its collectively thick but microcephalic skull around the enigmatic President Donald Trump.
Seemingly unable to fathom, nor comprehend, the possibility that a man can be both bold and immune to the goody-two-shoed nature of the whiny liberal shame narrative that has overrun Western culture, liberals of Raskin’s ilk frantically defer to a nebulous interpretation and application of the 25th Amendment as a means by which to exercise their Trump-hating fetishes. Like much of feminized, motherized nanny 21st Century society, Raskin likewise seeks to pathologize that rare strain of unapologetic male individualism which flaunts manners, convention, and bitchy conformity.
Pointing to the outcry over President Donald Trump’s latest controversial tweets, freshman Rep. Jamie Raskin is urging his colleagues to get behind a bill that could potentially oust the President if he was mentally or physically unfit.
The Maryland Democrat wants to create an 11-member commission made up of mostly physicians and psychiatrists — more formally called the “Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity.” The panel would carry out a medical examination and determine whether the President was physically or mentally able to do the job.
Two of the commission’s members would also be former high ranking officials, such as presidents, vice presidents, attorneys general or secretaries of state.
It’s a provocative and long-shot effort, but Raskin is citing as his legal backup the 25th Amendment of the Constitution, which was adopted in 1967 after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to establish procedure in the case a president is incapacitated. About two dozen Democrats have signed on to the effort as of Thursday.
Raskin is zeroing in on one section of that constitutional amendment, which allows the vice president to assume powers if either the majority of the Cabinet or “such other body as Congress” finds that the President is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of office.” (The vice president would also have to agree to the assessment of the President’s abilities.) Raskin is proposing his commission to serve as that “body.”
I’m positive that the concept of a governmental mental fitness decree appeals very much to left-wing “intrusionist” types, but let’s hope there is a trace of sanity left in this world and ultimately people will see the folly of implicating insanity in place of frankness and personal boldness on the part of a POTUS.
If outspoken bravado has become grounds for instability and mental unfitness, we are lost. In a world where abject lunacy is concealed behind overbearingly “noble” intentions, lunatics are the last refuge of reason.
