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.
The constitutional test of the president’s being “unable to discharge the powers and duties” of the office was intended to be vague and open-ended.
DJT is making people think about Section 4. Did he finally step over the line with his latest cure idea for Covid 19–inhaling or injecting disinfectant?
Obviously he didn’t learn from his repeated touting hydroxychloroquine, calling it a potential “game-changer” despite a lack of evidence and hasn’t said anything about the recent FDA warning about hydroxychloroquine dangers, citing serious heart issues, including death. This is the same guy who suggested nuking hurricanes.
DJT refused to take action on testing and now that testing is our biggest obstacle to getting out of our homes and going to work, he still won’t take the lead and instead says it is a State responsibility. That way he can say he wasn’t part of the lack of adequate testing problem because it wasn’t his job.
