Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, November 03, 2017

David Ferguson, Raw Story: As panic tightens its grip on the West Wing, some in the president's inner circle have begun to dread the possibility of impeachment. Ousted White House chief strategist Steve Bannon -- fearful that Trump's power is ebbing away -- has urged the president to take a more combative approach with Mueller. "The collapse of Obamacare repeal, and the dimming chances that tax reform will pass soon -- many Trump allies are deeply pessimistic about its prospects -- have created the political climate for establishment Republicans to turn on Trump. Two weeks ago, according to a source, Bannon did a spitball analysis of the Cabinet to see which members would remain loyal to Trump in the event the 25th Amendment were invoked, thereby triggering a vote to remove the president from office. Bannon recently told people he's not sure if Trump would survive such a vote," wrote Sherman.

That was Bannon helping Trump to be even more paranoid and unhinged than he is.

Bannon understands how to manipulate the fearful, that is his audience.

The 25th is very high risk with no wiggle room. In other words, failure is not an option. I doubt if Trump's appointed weasels see the situation as dire as the rest of the country does. And the GOP controlled Congress would have a collective aneurism.

The 25th is understood to be reserved for mental debilitation - stroke, Alzheimer's, etc.

Trump is objectively awful, but he doesn't fit the criteria for the 25th. At least not yet.

He appears to have control of himself - his disgusting deviation from presidential norms is consistent with his decades-long deviation from decency norms - and his behavior is consistent with his past.

The best thing Democrats can do is move on from '16 and focus on the next 2 elections.

I think there's another criteria ~ unfit to govern ~ for any number of reasons that are purely objective and at the discretion of the V.P. and cabinet members. The Mueller investigation could be the nail in that coffin.

Egging on Kim Jung Un who has nuclear weapons indicates insanity Jeff. He risks the lives of millions just to feel superior. Let's review a little fairly recent history. Was it insane for George W. Bush to invade and occupy Iraq? Think about the expense, the deaths, the horrible wounds and most of all the actual end results before you answer. I say George W. Bush, who claimed God spoke to him encouraging him to invade, was and still is insane.

Or at least a psychologically walking wounded. Dick Cheney, the gatekeeper of the Bush administration, I think was totally, foaming at the mouth, bonkers.
