So, Keith Olbermann wants section 4 of the 25th amendment to be invoked? The basis Olbermann’s claim is that President Trump is using “irresponsible speech” and it is destroying the country? There are plenty of points that Olbermann is clueless on.
Let’s start with the 25th amendment, specifically, article 4. Here is what article 4 of the 25th amendment says:
“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.
Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office”.

Article 4 is meant for a president that is in a coma, serious surgery, or an incident similar to when Ronald Regan was shot. It is not intended to be enacted when liberals cannot stop crying and the truth is offending them.
But if Olbermann is calling for article 4 of the 25th amendment to be invoked, does that mean he is referring to the president getting shot? The context that Olbermann uses article 4 does not make sense and could be seen as a way to incite violence against President Trump. Is he looking for a situation like Regan’s? well, that is the type of situation that article 4 could be possible. if he is, he needs to be watch and investigated. Recommending that the president get shot should be taken serious and if Olbermann is inferring it then he is the one unable to perform his duties.
I know that his Tweet was referring to his “irresponsible language” but if Olbermann understood article 4 than he would know that this claim has no backing. “Irresponsible language” does not mean that the president is unable to perform his duties, it means he is not following your liberal agenda.
Olbermann’s claim is just as ridiculous as the left’s attempt to repeal the law against diagnosing public officials remotely. It has been in law for 44 years and is there to protect against false or incorrect diagnosis, which the left would have plenty of them.
If Olbermann claimed that President Trump’s language was tearing our country apart but I’m pretty sure it is that left guilt of that. Liberals have made direct and indirect threats towards President Trump and Republicans. We now know that CNN created the Russia headline, which was meant to distract the country and law makers from Trump’s agenda.
As a country, we have not seen changes in Washington and are more divided as a country because of liberal’s attitude following the election. So, saying that President Trump is destroying our country is another lie because it is people like Olbermann that are destroying our country.
Well, Olbermann tweet was just another example of the liberal’s fantasy land. Olbermann’s claims, invoking article 4 and President Trump is destroying our country, are just pathetic. He is a perfect example of “irresponsible language” that is destroying our country.
