Trump May Be Crazy But He Stacked the Deck To Protect Himself

Good Day World!

To the most casual observer on the planet it's obvious that Trump's mental state has deteriorated rapidly in just the last week.

Even his most ardent supporters, Jared and Ivanka, have avoided the White House and reporters during his rant about American Jews being disloyal to Israel if they vote Democrat.

They know Trump is crazy and defending statements like that will take them down the rabbit hole with him. So they hide during times of crisis.

The Senate and the House are playing footsies with a demented narcissist to the determent of our Constitution and system of government. 

The scary thing is Trump keeps upping his game against our traditional allies, and cozying up to the dictators of the world.

After insulting Denmark - our longtime ally - when they weren't interested in selling their territory of Greenland to him, he turned around and spoke up for Russia suggesting they should be allowed to rejoin the G-7 (making it the G-8 again).

The odds of stopping Trump from creating crisis's here in America, and abroad, before next November are regrettably thin.

There's two options:

Enact the 25th Amendment, Section 4, which states; "The Vice President and either the Cabinet, or a body approved "by law" formed by Congress, to jointly agree that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office."

The Section 4 clause to the 25th Amendment was designed to deal with a situation where an incapacitated President couldn't tell Congress that the Vice President needed to act as president.

Being crazy would definitely qualify for being incapacitated. The problem is Trump has stacked the deck and there's no way his corrupt cabinet and vice president would consider defying him - even though they know he's not right in the head.

That just leaves impeachment. 

I suspect Democrats will open an inquiry into impeachment in September or October. The political tea leaves seem to be pointing that way as Pelosi is slowly giving in to pressure to endorse the move. 

I don't believe we have the luxury of waiting until next November to vote the Orange Anus out of office.

Who knows what he's going to do tomorrow? Or next week? Or next month? Will we be in a dirty war in the middle east? There's too many mind-boggling scenarios to even think about.

Trump has been like a tick in the nation's dark underbelly of White Supremacists and racists which he knows are his base.  

However, ticks can be extracted with a twist, and pulled out.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
