Damn! Nancy is done playing!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Friday announced legislation on the 25th Amendment that seeks to effectively strip “future presidents” of presidential powers.
Pelosi, who is second in line to the presidency after Pence, held a mid-morning press conference with Maryland Congressman Jamie Raskin on introducing the Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Powers and Duties of Office Act, which would evaluate Trump’s fitness for office.
“This is not about President Trump,” she insisted. “He will face the judgement on the voters, but he shows the need for us to create a process for future presidents,” she went on, referring to his diagnosis with COVID-19.
The commission would consist of 16 members appointed by both Republican and Democratic lawmakers — eight of which would be medical professionals and another 8 former members of the executive branch like past presidents and vice presidents, Raskin said.
The speaker was pressed on the timing of the bill, which comes just 25 days before election day, but denied the commission was politically-motivated.
“It’s not about the election at all,” she said. “Again, this is about any judgement anybody has on anybody’s behaviour. This is about a diagnosis, a professional medical diagnosis.”
Make no mistake, this is definitely about Donald Trump.
I just think that Pelosi realizes that this thing will not be in place in time to be used against Trump so she is framing it as a tool to use against any future Donald Trumps.
I think it is a sound idea since I have been very frustrated by the fact that right now nobody seems to be able to stop this lunatic.
Of course, we would not need this if voters WOULD STOP VOTING FOR THE CRAZY PEOPLE!
