The scariest fact in the world today is the apparent unstable mental status of the president of the United States.
The saddest fact is that the Republican majority in Congress is not acting in the interest and preservation of the country.
We have an absence of effective Republican-majority Congressional control over the president. The Republican-majority Congress is not only unwilling to take proactive measures to remove this president, it is supporting the Trump line of trying to discredit the special counsel’s investigation and the Republican-majority House and Senate committees’ investigations.
Based on media reports, there may be sufficient evidence now for a successful impeachment if the Republican majority would act in the interest and preservation of the world.
That the president has a big button makes the fear of a catastrophic event all too realistic.
A Vox article, “The psychiatrist who briefed Congress on Trump’s mental state: this is ‘an emergency’” clearly describes the immediate dangers. https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2018/1/5/16770060/trump-mental-health-psychiatrist-25th-amendment
Dr. Lee distinguishes her proposed intervention from a psychiatric assessment of the individual:
“We are assessing dangerousness, not making a diagnosis. The two are quite separate: Assessing dangerousness is making a judgment about the situation, not the person. We are assessing dangerousness, not making a diagnosis. The two are quite separate: Assessing dangerousness is making a judgment about the situation, not the person.”
Republicans you must act quickly. Tax cuts will prove to have limited utility in the face of a nuclear or “conventional” war.
