Last week House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced her plans to invoke the 25th Amendment in order to remove President Donald Trump from office. An act that would easily remove Democratic nominee Joe Biden as well.
Rep. Dan Crenshaw fired back on Twitter, declaring that Pelosi and Democrats are "hungry for power." He wrote, “These people have no limits. They are hungry for power, nothing else. We can’t let them win this.”

Politico's Kyle Cheney noted, “RASKIN has already filed very similar legislation. It creates a congressional body (which is actually contemplated in the 25th amendment itself) made up of doctors, psychiatrists and former executive branch officials to make judgments if a president’s health is failing.”
Cheney was referring to Raskin’s bill, House Resolution 1987, which establishes an Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity....so basically a way to determine if the president is mentally and physically fit to carry out the powers and duties of office.
This week, Trump made an excellent point on FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures.” He declared that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pushing the 25th Amendment as a way to not only get rid of him, but to also try and get former Vice President Joe Biden out of the way for Sen. Kamala Harris.
A scenario that I have honestly been wondering about myself.
Partial transcript as follows:
BARTIROMO: I have got to get your reaction to what Nancy Pelosi said this weekend. She is questioning if those steroid treatments that you were on — I know you’re not on them anymore — are influencing your decision-making.
And, on Friday, she raised the idea of a presidential succession bill to alter the 25th Amendment process. She wants Congress to be able to take out a president if they deem he is unfit.
Here’s Nancy Pelosi this weekend. I have got to get your reaction. Listen to this.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
REP. NANCY PELOSI (D-CA): The 25th Amendment creates a path for preserving stability if a president suffers a crippling physical or mental problem and is un — quote — in the amendment — “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office and transfers his powers.”
Specifically, Section 4 of the amendment empowers Congress to set up an independent body to confront such a crisis.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
BARTIROMO: Mr. President, your reaction?
TRUMP: Well, I think she’s talking about Joe Biden, because, to be honest with you, he’s the one that’s got the problem.
And, obviously, it’s obvious to anybody that watches him speak. He’s the one that got — that has the problem. And they want to put a super radical left person in, like Kamala, who’s worse than — who’s further left than Bernie Sanders.
And that whole thing is breaking up now, because the left isn’t getting what they want. All of a sudden, they’re back into fracking and all the things that they talked about they wouldn’t do, and now they’re saying they’re going to do them. And the left is very unhappy.
I’m going to get a lot of people because of my great policies on trade. They’re going to — just like last time, Bernie Sanders’ people are going to vote for me because of what I have done on trade, because what I have done on trade is a miracle.
And we have a long way to go, because, frankly, they interrupted it with the impeachment hoax and various other things.
But, no, I think she’s talking, and a lot of people think that she’s talking about Joe Biden, getting him out.
BARTIROMO: Now, the…
TRUMP: And, frankly, that’s — that’s the way I view it. I certainly view it that way.

Watch: Biden Declares He's Running for Senate AND President
Oh bless his heart, he's lost his mind again! Former Vice President and Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden declared on Monday that he is running for the U.S. Senate, and then moments later he said he is running for the President of the United States.

As much as Joe Biden talks about President Trump not taking the coronavirus seriously and downplaying it, he sure is a walking health hazard himself.

WATCH: Reporter Describes Joe Biden's Dismal Campaign Event in Arizona
Arizona is one of the many battleground states that could go either way during the presidential election.
