Peggy Noonan Urges the 25th Amendment

Policy

As for the chief instigator, the president of the United States, he should be removed from office by the 25th Amendment or impeachment, whichever is faster. This, with only a week and a half to go, would be a most extraordinary action, but this has been an extraordinary time. Mike Pence is a normal American political figure; he will not have to mount a new government; he appears to be sane; he will in this brief, strange interlude do fine.

The president should be removed for reasons of justice—he urged a crowd to march on Congress, and, when it turned violent, had to be dragged into telling them, equivocally, to go home—and prudence. Mitt Romney had it exactly right: “What happened here . . . was an insurrection, incited by the president of the United States.” As for prudence, Mr. Trump is a sick, bad man and therefore, as president, a dangerous one. He has grown casually bloody-minded, nattering on about force and denouncing even his own vice president as a coward for not supporting unconstitutional measures. No one seems to be certain how Mr. Trump spends his days. He doesn’t bother to do his job. The White House is in meltdown. The only thing that captures his interest is the fact that he lost, which fills him with thoughts of vengeance.

Removing him would go some distance to restoring our reputation, reinforcing our standards, and clarifying constitutional boundaries for future presidents who might need it.

  1. It’s kinda funny that the back stabber, Mitt Romney, has done nothing in the last four years, except for himself. What has he done for the American people? Not much at all. Is he just honest or just disloyal, maybe neither.
    I see people coming out of the woodwork wanting to hang the President. These are the same people that has done nothing to help the people. The ring leader, Speaker of Pelosi, only has hate on her mind. The hate toward President Trump. My question is why does she hate him so much? I bet it’s because he owes her nothing, isn’t answerable to her, just to the American people. When the Speaker acts the way she has, it is her that needs to be removed from her office as Speaker and removed from the House.
    I haven’t seen any public official talking about an investigation into the riot. All they say is that Trump is to blame. WRONG! It’s those individuals that caused fraud, bringing in illegal ballots, machines that are rigged, thumb drives that disappeared and then shown up days later (who had them), and especially Judges that refused to do their jobs. Hate is a powerful thing. It has caused more than just wars, and all for what? Investigate the riot, investigate into the lack of security on Capital Hill, who opened doors for the rioters to enter, why didn’t the Capital Police do their jobs? Where was the Secret Service and FBI? Where they hiding under desks?
    The security of the people’s government need answered and ALL those involved need to be fired. But blaming everything on one man, the President, is wrong. Also remember this, whatever is done to President Trump now, could be done to any other President in the future, and in some cases, maybe looking in years past, actions for things committed by any other President, might cause action taken again him or her.
