Can The 25th Amendment Be Used to Stop the "2nd Coming of God"?

Thom plus logo Since the mass executions in El Paso by a white nationalist citing Donald Trump, six other right wing terrorists have been stopped and their guns taken away before they could commit crimes. One posted a statement of his purpose: "I Thank God everyday President Donald John Trump is President and that he will launch at Racial War and Crusade to keep the N***ers, Spi*s, and Muslims and any dangerous non-White or Ethnically or Culturally Foreign group 'In Line.' By 'In Line' it is meant they Will either be sent to 'Concentration Camps' or dealt with Ruthlessly and Vigorously by the United States Military."

Trump's reelection strategy is to activate and encourage his neo-Nazi base, but it is placing the rest of Americans at huge risk, and his concentration camps are destroying the lives of refugees seeking asylum.

And now that he has tweeted that he might be the second coming of God, it's even less likely he'll listen to any kind of advice, so it's getting even weirder. He needs to stop it and fire Steven Miller, or his cabinet needs to intervene using the 25th amendment, or both.

Regarding the 25th Amendment don't forget that Pence is a Dominionist. Want to see Gilead for real and not just on the TV series "The Handmaid's Tale"?

Regarding your statement: "six other right wing terrorists have been stopped and their guns taken away before they could commit crimes." Can you or someone direct me to the source of this information?

Thanks

Republicans ruthlessly reshaped America to hold onto power - can Dems do the same thing to save it?

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
