Speaker Nancy Pelosi sent the liberal media into an absolute feeding frenzy this week after she mentioned the words “25th Amendment” during a Thursday new conference. The 25th Amendment, of course, is a Constitutional method to transfer away the power from a president.
Since day one when President Donald Trump took office, there have been a number of high-profile Democrats who have kicked around the term to generate hype from their constituents, but nothing ever really stuck because it’s a silly notion and there isn’t a true need for it.
On Friday, Pelosi announced much-anticipated (by liberals) plan involving the 25th Amendment, but suddenly her tune changed. Her plan, as she laid it out, is to form a commission that would put in place a mechanism to act quickly on 25th Amendment powers should the need arise for… wait for it… “future presidents.”
“This is not about President Trump,” Pelosi said. “He will face the judgment of the voters. But he shows the need for us to create a process for future presidents.”
Oh, yeah, we totally believe that.
But interestingly, President Trump, not unexpectedly, responded immediately to Pelosi’s idea to form a 25th Amendment commission, offering up a very curious possible reason behind the true intentions of the new group.
“Crazy Nancy Pelosi is looking at the 25th Amendment in order to replace Joe Biden with Kamala Harris. The Dems want that to happen fast because Sleepy Joe is out of it!!!” Trump tweeted.

In other words, the president believes — and he’s probably not wrong — that Democrats are so bent on installing ultra-liberal California Sen. Kamala Harris as president, that they’re already preparing a method to remove Biden from power — that is, if he actually somehow would win the November election.
The president might very well be onto something here, because we all know that Biden was selected as the Democratic nominee simply because of his name recognition and political street cred with the left. Other than that, the number of people on the left who are actually excited about Biden as a president probably number in the dozens, at best.
Harris, who was once labeled as the “most liberal” senator in the Upper Chamber, definitely has the attention of the more radical left wing of the Democrat party and make no mistake — somehow, someway, they will make SURE that she is the one with all the power.
