Donald Trump appears to not be the best judge of character.
I don’t know. Seems to be a pattern.
The much-anticipated book “A Warning,” reportedly written by an unnamed senior White House official, claims that high-level White House aides were certain that Vice President Mike Pence would support the use of the 25th Amendment to have President Donald Trump removed from office because of mental incapacity.
According to the exposé, which is written by someone that The New York Times and the publisher of the book say is a current or former senior White House official, using the pen name “Anonymous,” highly placed White House officials did a back-of-the-envelope tally of which Cabinet members would be prepared to sign a letter invoking Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which says that if the president is deemed unfit to discharge the duties of his office, the vice president would assume the role.
The “OK, Boomer” meme has gone too far.
They wanted to use it to impeach Trump.
That letter would need to be signed by a majority of the Cabinet, delivered to Pence for his signature and then submitted to Congress.
According to Anonymous, there was no doubt in the minds of these senior officials that Pence would support invoking the 25th Amendment if the majority of the Cabinet signed off on it.
While discussions of invoking the 25th Amendment were never formalized, the idea that the vice president could go along with a Cabinet-backed plan to remove the president was certain to raise the ire of Trump, who is intolerant of dissent or any hint of disloyalty.
Passages from “A Warning,” set to be published Nov. 19, were provided to HuffPost by a source who did so only on the condition that their anonymity be protected and that the passages from the book would not be quoted from directly.
HuffPost has not confirmed Pence’s position on the invocation of the 25th Amendment but is publishing details from “A Warning” because the book is highly newsworthy and the Department of Justice has gone so far as to warn the author that he or she may be subject to nondisclosure agreements as part of their work as an employee of the executive branch.
I don’t know about you, but I’m just going to spend 2020-2024 AD making fun of Boomers.
There’s a lot of material to work with and we may see a Boomer Genocide AKA Day of the Pillow before we see RaHoWa the way things are going.
Every “OK, Boomer” meme brings us closer to that day.
If every politician over the age of 50 was put down, pretty much all of our problems would be solved. This isn’t even disputable. It is a self-evident fact.
And this is the only issue that matters, really.
We gotta keep our eyes on the prize here, fellow kids: our shared hatred of old people.
