'Off the Rails': Huckabee, GOP Challenger Blast Warren's Call for 25th Amendment to Oust Trump
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Thursday it's time to use the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office.
Citing the anonymous New York Times op-ed in which a senior official warned about Trump's "reckless decisions" and "erratic behavior," Warren called for the drastic action to be taken.
"If senior administration officials think the President of the United States is not able to do his job, then they should invoke the 25th Amendment," she told CNN.
"The Constitution provides for a procedure whenever the Vice President and senior officials think the President can't do his job. It does not provide that senior officials go around the President -- take documents off his desk, write anonymous op-eds ... Every one of these officials have sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States. It's time for them to do their job."
The writer of the op-ed, who has yet to be named, said officials have discussed the 25th Amendment, which provides for a way to remove the president if he cannot "discharge the powers and duties of his office."
Responding on "Fox & Friends," Warren's Republican Senate challenger State Rep. Geoff Diehl said Warren has a "radical agenda" and wants to "plunge the country into chaos."
Diehl said he believes the race is closer than people realize and called out Warren for being more interested in seeking the presidency in 2020.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Friday on "America's Newsroom" that the Trump's critics on the left have "lost their minds" in their fervor to remove him from office.
He questioned how Warren ever taught law at Harvard given her "off the rails" views on the 25th Amendment. Huckabee said the 25th Amendment was designed for a situation where the president falls into a coma or is otherwise physically incapable of serving.
Huckabee said people can plainly see Trump giving long speeches at rallies and "outworking" people around him who are half his age.
"It is becoming a laughingstock to see [the Democrats] this frantic to try to get rid of the president," said Huckabee.
