Dems Question Trump’s Mental Health

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Democratic lawmakers are openly questioning President Donald Trump’s mental health, and a growing number of them are invoking the 25th Amendment as a springboard to introduce legislation that would allow former presidents and vice presidents to determine if Trump is mentally unfit for office.

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA), and Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) are among several of these Democrats, according to The Hill. Franken reportedly said “a few” Republican colleagues have expressed concerns to him about Trump’s mental health, and Lieu plans to introduce legislation that would require the presence of a psychiatrist or psychologist in the White House.

Breitbart News previously reported that Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) had launched an online petition to force the Republican Party to submit then-presidential nominee Trump to a psychiatric evaluation.

Last week, Rep. Blumenauer used baseless allegations about Trump’s mental health as a springboard to invoke the 25th Amendment in a floor speech. And in an interview with CNN this weekend, Rep. Jackie Spier (D-CA) said Trump “has got to get a grip. The 25th Amendment is there if the president becomes incapacitated.”

The 25th Amendment was ratified in 1967 following President John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination. It allows the Vice President to become President in the event the president resigns or is removed from office by his cabinet for being “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

In an op-ed he penned in the The Oregonian, Blumenauer suggested there was a “fatal flaw” in the 25th Amendment that allows the president to fire his Cabinet — which is granted the right to determine the president’s ability to serve — in order to “prevent the application of the amendment.” He added, “The alternative process spelled out by the amendment leaves the decision to the vice president and a so-far-undefined body created by Congress.”

    • Paulita Gilberto

      And then if Pence is President, he will be called on his mental health for being a Christian.

  • David Byrd

    This is totally ridiculous if they want we can make that a reality for all politicians not just presidents and if applied we would not be burdened with idiots like Pelosi, waters, jackson, and never Reid and let’s not leave out the rinos like graham, and McCain but this just shows what rats we have that are against the country thank God they are showing themselves now and we can get rid of these morons.

    • Joe

      These politicians that want him out simply cannot live the political life without the secret handshake and double hip bump curtesy. They will ACTUALLY have to do their jobs correctly. They need their mental health checkups to see what their problem is with not being able to comply with following OUR new President Elect Mr. Donald J Trump. God Bless America.

  • CaptTurbo

    It’s these leftist retards that have the mental disorder.

    • What? Trump has been a fart left liberal Democrat ideologue his whole life. Only an idiot would not have known that we they voted for him. Trump is actually the king of the leftist retards and he certainly fits the description of one with a mental disorder.

      • CaptTurbo

        Obviously you are well versed in knowledge about retards at a personal level.

        • I am getting quite an education to that fact from these supporters of the lifetime far left liberal Democrat ideologue Trump. They are living proof that the dumbing down of America is complete by the left. All of these years of leftist leadership in America has driven the electorate insane and they keep electing these far left liberal ideologues expecting a different result. God help us.

      • Paulita Gilberto

        President Trump has surrounded himself with people who are there to undo the disasters Obama has implemented. He is not locked into any ideology but right now is fighting to bring us out of the dark age Obama wanted to put us into.

        • What? They are almost all former George Soros employees. I guess this is payback to Soros for forgiving over 300 million of Trump’s debt in Chicago to allow Trump to run for POTUS. Trump remains the far left liberal lifetime Democrat he has always been. Trump is the one responsible for the Obama Presidency with his money and influence as an insider in the Democrat Party. He was the largest contributor to the Obama campaign and after getting him nominated and elected Trump gloated and called Obama a “great President”.

  • Peter Pihun

    The entire democratic party has been mentally unfit for a long time and now is real proof of it.

  • Dexter L. Wilson

    You all need to see “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” about Saul Alinsky, a Roman Catholic Documentary about his actions. He adhered to 3 people’s label for Socialist and Communists as LIBERALS AND PROGRESSIVES BECAUSE THEY SOUNDED NICER. These people adhering to the Saul Alinsky’s :”Rules for Radicals”. Their names, Dodd, Tracthenberg and Norman Thomas. Alinsky said that any and all means to promote the “struggle” is the means by which they label those who don’t belong to their ideals. They call us Racists, Fascists and any label they think will stick so remember these atheists need to hear their real names strongly and loudly Socialist and Communists hiding behind the names liberal and progressive.

    • Paulita Gilberto

      Where is that book available? (I’ll try Amazon and Walmart.)

      • Dexter L. Wilson

        I wish I could tell you, it is Arcadia Films “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing”. They showed it on the EWTN channel on my Suddenlink. Maybe if you contact EWTN you can get a copy of this DVD. The Catholics were used by Saul Alinsky to promote his amoral agenda. This I believe is a Catholic produced film so don’t be surprised when they talk about MARY. The advantage of the Catholics producing the film is the fact that Alinsky was able to infiltrate their priesthood. They put a lot of priest into the Catholic church that were actually amoral.

        • Paulita Gilberto

          I read a book years ago called “Goodbye, good men” about homosexual infiltration. I’m not sure if Alinsky was involved in that. I need to find it and re-read it. Can’t remember who the author was. I’m not a Catholic, but used to attend a Charismatic Catholic meeting when I lived in metro DC. Thanks. I was looking for a book, not a video. I’ll try that now.

          • Dexter L. Wilson

            I don’t know why I ended up taping the “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” but you know how the Holy Spirit works. I was just part of the Charismatic Renewal myself. I did attended a Charismatic Catholic service and was blessed out of my socks. God was moving in all of the Denominational churches. I state in my Presbyterian Church as long as Jesus wanted, influenced a German woman who then later became a teacher at Christ for the Nations who had been a member of that church and maybe that is why. I stayed for a while after receiving the Holy Spirit.

          • Dexter L. Wilson

            I Looked on line for Arcadia Films “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” and found I could order the film from a Catholic services for $15. So you can get a copy really cheap. I hope people will look for it and get it and use it against the media and the democrats. let all your friends know according to previous leaders of the Communist and Socialist Parties, Bella Dodd, Alexander Tracthenberg, and Norman Thomas says that they don’t use their real name of Socialists and communists but use the names liberal, progressive and democrat because they sound so lovable. That was in the film. Saul Alinsky even said is hero was Lucifer and explained why and that he expected to go to hell and organize the have nots in hell.

        Ha! I am not then the only guilty party. My weakness extends to buying books from them. Very rarely anything else. And as told you, no Walmart here.

    President Trump is the first Sane, Honest and Competent President the USA has had in 8 very-long years!!!
    The insanity of the ideology, intolerance, dishonesty and inept policies of the Leftwing Progressive & Globalists has been extremely difficult to endure.
    If you want politicians analyzed by head-shrinks, the Dems should start with inept Nancy Pelosi (“Daffy Duck”) and corrupt Harry Reid (who has followed in his family traditions of Horse Thevin’ and Train Robbin’) followed by true racists Sharpton, Obama (who is also clearly Anti-Semitic and Anti-American — Who had to be forced by the Dems to even wear an American-Flag Lapel-Pin or act in USA interests vs. Iran and Palestine whose governments are Terrorism Sponsors & Actors).
    The Dems are quick to display their intolerance for free speech and integrity including promotion of violence. They accuse Trump of be Hitler-like, when they are often led and funded by George Soros, a Billionaire who is actually an unrepentant former Nazi-Collaborator that fingered and assisted Nazis in the looting of Jewish families and their murder in Nazi Concentration Camps during the Holocaust! The actions under Obama of the IRS, EPA and lawless Justice Department and funded divisive groups parallel those of the Hitler/Nazi ‘Brown Shirts’ — Remember their “Night of the Long Knives” where during riots Jews, gypsies, homosexuals and others were killed, assassinated and abused similar to the Progressive/Globalist inspired violent protests encouraged and even funded by George Soros and the DNC!
    Wake Up America and the US-Leftwing-Media — President Trump is on the side of the American Public, Decency, Law and Order! Unlike most spineless and many corrupt Politicians that have infested our Governmental Swamp for far Too Long, Donald Trump is trying to “Right the Ship of State” — And that as you can see by all the corrupt Alligators attacking his every move, It takes a very Strong Leader to overcome the constant attacks and failed attempts to impose phony Political Correctness.
    Moral of this story: Much of leftwing public has been lulled into living in a false Progressive/Globalist “Alice in Wonderland” bubble, Trump is bursting that phony bubble — Get Used to the Return to Sanity and Common Sense in the USA that finally a leader with a strong spine is bringing.
    Anyone who supports the corruption of Hillary and the Clinton foundation is either one of their “Useful Idiots” or needs a Shrink! President Trump is not a politician, but an extremely efficient and competent business-like executive who is simply restoring law and order by enforcing our existing laws and undoing the Obama insanity and damage.


    The democrats better check their own metal health, they are doing everything but what the people want.

  • KayO

    Wait….what? The Democrats question others’ mental health? They’re used to stomping their feet and throwing temper tantrums to get their way, but that won’t work with this administration. Give them some crayons.

  • Joyce White

    That would be the joke of the century. 3 Democrats and 2 iffy Republicans would surly give Trump a splendid report card. The only difference between Trump and the rest, is he is “up front” with his opinions, which causes blistering on the butts of politicians

  • Howleyesque

    Idiocy emanating from individuals whose OWN mental health now seems to be in SERIOUS QUESTION!

  • Claudia Morin Garland

    Well the Dems have to start questioning Trumps mental health to get everyone ready for the big rush to pull the 25th on him! They make me sick and I think they are just jealous of his success and how he can pull off the things he says. They are too scared it would get them thrown out! And you know I think senators and reps better worry about the swamp draining and not get caught up in it

  • phil62

    This is meant to be a comical look at the mentality of the President right? The Dumbo’s want to throw mental health into the fight? How many of these fools take a really close look into their own mirrors each day? The answer apparent is NONE.

    • Paulita Gilberto

      Especially Franken who has undisclosed “Republicans,” (McCain and Goober) telling him they question the mental health of the President. No more un-named sources.

  • VET

    These Democrats have the wrong guy it’s the insane Democrats that need to see a Mental health clinic,they should all be in a hospital for the crimes that they have committed on our country and should all sign into a Mental asylum which they belong in.And go marching with the rest of those nut cases out there protesting our President.These Democrats are the worst the world has ever seen but the day will come and they will no longer have a place to cry about as far as i can see they have no future of ever taking control of this country anymore.

  • survivor33

    Just how can a Democrat question anyone’s mental health? They are the ones with a mental health problem. Better watch out because if they start that sort of thing, they will open up Pandora’s box and then more than half of the liberals will be in the “hospital ” starting with Waters, Clintons, Peloski, and most of the Senators.

  • VirgoVince

    Backasswards, TYPICAL dimocruds, blaming others for their mental limitations!!

    • mrpoohead

      …and your excuse?

      • Paulita Gilberto

        I think your name says it all.

        • mrpoohead

          So does yours – get back over the border.

          • Paulita Gilberto

            Ha ha! I am of British distraction. This is just a variation on my name because of a friend of mine who is an Hispanic who’s family has been here like my family has for many generations.

          • mrpoohead

            Then you have no excuse for abusing the language. “Distraction”? “who is Hispanic and whose” God help us!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Paulita Gilberto

    Everybody “loves” Pence but if they got Trump out of the way, they would instantly re-focus their hate on Pence. This is what they do. They were against the Iraq war, but “liked” the one in Afghanistan and wanted us to take on Korea. Whatever Conservatives do, they want to go in another direction. Fake choices from fake people.

  • epauls

    The Mental Health has been a problem in the Liberal Democrat community for many years. Many of their Educated Elite can not speak clear English; they only know the hateful and ugly means of communication.

  • ABBAsFernando

    Bull shit!

    38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioralproblems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].39. Dominate the psychiatricprofession and use mental health laws as a means of gainingcoercive control over those who oppose Communist goals
