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

America: Meet Your Overlord Rupert Murdoch...

Thom plus logo The main lesson that we've learned so far from the impeachment hearings is that if Richard Nixon had had a billionaire like Rupert Murdoch with a television network like Fox News behind him, he never would've resigned and America would have continued to be presided over by a criminal.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
