“Trying to use the 25th Amendment to try and circumvent the Election is a despicable act of unconstitutional power grabbing…which happens in third world countries. You have to obey the law. This is an attack on our system & Constitution.” Alan Dershowitz. @TuckerCarlson

The 25th Amendment does exactly that. It’s one of the mechanism for removing a President. It’s in The Constitution.

Donald Trump is an idiot. But we already knew that.

A few of the responses:

If something is in the Constitution, can it be unconstitutional?

Asking for a friend.

whatever you say, President Crazypants

The admendments are part of the constitution, 1st, 2nd and 25th alike. So the exercise of the 25th amendment is the opposite of unconstitutional.

Says the person who is manufacturing a `National Emergency”

The 25th ammendment is in the constitution. God I miss having a president who was smart

At thus point I’d take one that could read at a 4th grade level

Last I checked, the 25th amendment is a part of the Constitution, meaning that actions pursuant to the amendment are by definition constitutional, but I’m not a TV lawyer.

Nice try Donald. There are only 10 amendments.

Heh. Everyone knows that there is the only one true Amendment.

Individual-1 clearly has never READ the 25th Amendment to the … CONSTITUTION.

The Constitution is unconstitutional!

Someone seems a bit scared.

So it’s unconstitutional to use the [squints] Constitution.

Just a heads up.
The 25th Amendment is part of the Constitution.

Incidentally, the 25th Amendment is not about preventing an election. It is in the Constitution that allows us to remove a President from office if they are declared unfit for duty. You should try reading, if you know how.

That awkward moment when you remember that the 25th Amendment is literally the definition of constitutional…

The 25th Amendment is part of the Constitution. It’s an Amendment to the Constitution. A Constitutional Amendment, ratified by 38 states. Are you getting it yet? A document one of you swore to uphold? Anyone, anyone at all, Bueller?

It’s literally constitutional.

Can we impeach him since he doesn’t actually understand or know the constitution?

Using the 25th Amendment is not unconstitutional because… [checks notes]… it is actually part of The Constitution.

So using the 25th amendment of the Constitution is unconstitutional? Sounds like doublespeak, a tactic of fascists.

Third world countries use the 25th Amendment? Huh?

Using the Constitution is unconstitutional?

I can’t believe this is real… using the constitution is unconstitutional? Ok…

You do understand that the 25th Amendment is part of the Constitution right?

Using the constitution is an attack on the constitution?

The 25th Amendment is in the Constitution, bro.

The 25th amendment is literally.. an amendment to the Constitution. Applying it couldn’t possibly be unconstitutional, because…

You know what, forget it.

It’s in the Constitution you jabronis

You seem tense. Also the 25th Amendment is in the Constitution. You should read it.

Yeah, except that it’s part of the Constitution so, like, it’s probably not all that unconstitutional

The 25th amendment to the Constitution is – by definition – constitutional.

So the constitution is unconstitutional in your view?

NARRATOR: Little did he know, using the 25th Amendment would NOT be unconstitutional…

…because it’s in the Constitution.

soooo the Constitution is unconstitutional?

Once you start talking about the 25th ammendment, it’s all pretty much downhill from there.

Are you trying to say that third world countries have a 25th Amendment, or are you saying that people are trying to use The Constitution to fight The Constitution? I can’t keep up anymore.

No one can keep up anymore.
