Let's face it, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has lost it.
She lead an impeachment against President Donald Trump that was nothing more than a political stunt. So much so Joe Biden hasn't once mentioned he's running against an impeached President.
Nope. The impeachment doesn't poll well which means it failed in it's main objective, to tarnish Trump as he runs for re-election.
Last week, the 80-year old Speaker suggested POTUS may have been rage tweeting as a side effect of steroids POTUS was taking as a treatment for COVID.
The Hill reported Pelosi as saying, "Believe me, there are people ... who think that steroids have an impact on your thinking. So, I don’t know, I do practice medicine on the side without benefit of a diploma, as a mother and a grandmother, but I hadn’t gone into mental health yet."
A couple days after saying that Pelosi doubled down.
"By the way, tomorrow — come here tomorrow. We're going to be talking about the 25th Amendment."
The 25th Amendment allows the cabinet to remove the president from office temporarily by saying he is unfit to carry out his duties. When a majority says so the Vice President would then assume presidential duties. However, in the Amendment, the president can resume duties by declaring he's able to do his (or her) job.
Congress could then act to remove the President via the 25th Amendment as Pelosi seems to be teasing. However, it would require a 2/3rds vote both the House and Senate.
In other words there's zero chance of removing Trump before January 20th. Pelosi knows this as she becomes more and more reckless.
The recklessness showed up during an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer. The Speaker lost her cool with Blitzer when he pressed her on not getting a stimulus deal done. Watch.
Pelosi accused Blitzer of being a 'GOP apologist.' Wait, Wolf is now on the GOP's side. Come on.
Here's what happened. President Trump was ready to spend $1.8 trillion giving stimulus checks to Americans, extending unemployment and helping small businesses. It was Pelosi who said no. The tides have turned. For the first time ever Pelosi is feeling the heat from the media for not getting the job done.
She doesn't like that.
But, Pelosi can't afford to give President Trump a victory this close to an election.
She is reckless. And it's hurting the American people.
