Should The 25th Amendment Be Invoked to Get Trump Out of Office - Due to His handling Of the Coronavirus?

Thom plus logo We are now all Seattle and New Rochelle. Two years ago, the Trump administration shut down the two high-level offices in the White House that were responsible for dealing with a pandemic. No longer exist.

Because of Trump's incompetence and hubris, his administration was unwilling to make the World Health Organization test kit, which was available all over the world in January, available anywhere in the United States. Thus, large parts of the United States are probably in a situation similar to Seattle and New Rochelle, or will be soon, but we don't know the details because the test kits are not available and have not been for months.

We need a national mobilization right now to prepare our hospitals and doctors offices for what is coming. We need easy and accessible testing in every community in America today. And because the Trump administration is unwilling to make this happen and is giving us happy talk, we all need to carefully re-calibrate our lives and avoid unnecessary exposure to crowds and public events.

Finally, Mike Pence, if he is actually listening to the health professionals around him, should convene the Cabinet and begin the process of invoking the 25th Amendment to get Trump out of office and protect our nation.

How is your 401K doing Tinhat?

In spring 2018 the Trump administration axed the executive branch team responsible for coordinating a response to a pandemic and did not replace it. The then National Security Advisor John Bolton "reorganized" the National Security Council removing the position of Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer and disbanding his team. Tom Bossert, whom the Washington Post reported “had called for a comprehensive biodefense strategy against pandemics and biological attacks,” had been fired one month prior.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
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."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
