The 25th Amendment Is In Order Without a Doubt

K Gerard Thomas

For 1 year, 238 days, 6 hours our nation has been without a president the proof is in the tweets of what most Americans now call a mad man on the verge of a nervous breakdown, who at the very lease is incapable of showing remorse empathy and simple kindness to anyone outside of his family and even that is suspect. 

When I was in grade school my class room had pictures of all the presidents from Washington to Nixon and even though some were better leaders than others with exception to the Civil War “We the People” never felt that their presidency was destroying the value of our existence as a nation.

Donald Trump is the exception to the rule he has proven he can set the bar of indecency lower than anyone can imagine, some of America’s worst demagogues of the past can thank Trump and his GOP cohorts for doing what they could not, make a mockery of the highest office in the land.

He has proven time and time again that he has not one ounce of concern for the preservation of our democracy and to the adherence to the values that secures our faith in each other, the constitution and the rule of law.  Now that the south east Border States of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia are facing a Cat 1 Hurricane named Florence Trump decides to congratulate himself positive accolades regarding last year’s response to Hurricane Maria.

 “Well, I think Puerto Rico was incredibly successful,” he said. “Puerto Rico was, actually, our toughest one of all because it’s an island, so you just — you can’t truck things onto it. Everything is by boat. We moved a hospital into Puerto Rico — a tremendous military hospital in the form of a ship. You know that was an incredible, unsung success.”

“Texas, we had been given A-plusses for. Florida, we’ve been given A-plusses for. I think, in a certain way, the best job we did was Puerto Rico, but nobody would understand that. I mean, it’s harder to understand. It was very hard — a very hard thing to do because of the fact they had no electric. Before the storms hit, it was dead, as you probably know. So we’ve gotten a lot of receptivity, a lot of thanks for the job we’ve done in Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico was very important.”

“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000...

In the past when our nation faced challenges our president would step in and offer positive voice that appeared to console us, from Pearl Harbor, to the assassinations of John F Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy, Watergate, the Challenger Explosion, Oklahoma City Bombing, 9/11, Sandy Hook Elementary, and the recent death of Senator John Mc Cain are moments of sadness that the a consoler and chief inspired us to act and care for each other.  

The press continues to hope against hope Trump will somehow change, and they try to cover him as if he were normal, and we all know he is not, something is seriously wrong with him he is abnormal he is self-obsessed and never gives credit to others, unless he can get something out of it.

He does not possess what is commonly called a soul; he can’t reach out to those who are less fortunate and offer wise counsel that builds up instead of tearing down, he can’t help himself hate is in his DNA and as such he can’t fulfil his duties as president.

The 25th amendment allows for the Vice President to become president in the event of death, resignation, removal from office or impairment that prevents the current president from fulfilling his or her duties…Nuff Said!
