We’re not sure why Republicans who are still in office don’t speak out about Donald Trump’s erratic behavior in recent days. Oh sure, he was crazy AF before the election but things escalated when he started threatening to start a nuclear war with North Korea.
Former GOP Sen. Gordon Humphrey (N.H.), a longtime critic of Trump’s, unleashed holy hell on Wednesday with concerns over the former reality show star’s mental health.
Humphrey said that Trump is “sick of mind” and urged New Hampshire’s lawmakers to support calls to remove him from office, WMUR reports.
Trump threatened North Korea Tuesday with “fire and fury like the world has never seen” and a backlash ensued. The scandal plagued former reality show star tweeted about nukes just this morning because obviously, the public wasn’t freaked out enough already.
“President Trump’s threat to rain down ‘fire and fury’ on North Korea is like pouring gasoline on a fire,” Humphrey wrote in a letter to U.S. Rep. Annie Kuster (D-N.H.), which he shared first with WMUR.
“It’s crazy,” he added.
Humphrey told the local outlet that he sent similar letters to U.S. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen and Maggie Hassan and to U.S. Rep. Carol Shea-Porter.
Humphrey urged the members of the congressional delegation, all Democrats, to support H.R. 1987, which would establish an Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity to determine whether the president is “mentally or physically unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office” of president and should be removed under 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
“Donald Trump is seriously sick. He is dangerous,” Humphrey said in the letter. “As a citizen, former U.S. Senator, and twelve-year member of the Armed Services Committee, I urge you to act [at] once.”
“You must not take comfort in the system of checks and balances,” he continued. “The president alone has the authority to launch nuclear weapons, the only restraint being the advice of senior advisers who might be present at the time of crisis, and Donald Trump has shown repeated contempt for informed and wise counsel. He is sick of mind, impetuous, arrogant, belligerent and dangerous.”
“Donald Trump should be relieved of the powers of the presidency at the earliest date,” he continued.
“Serious crises are bearing down on us,” Humphrey wrote. “We cannot leave our national security and our families’ safety in the hands of a president whose poor judgment, belligerence, vindictiveness and reckless impetuosity constitute an indictment of his mental health.”
“Donald Trump should be relieved of the powers of the presidency at the earliest date,” he added. “Donald Trump is impaired by a seriously sick psyche. His sick mind and reckless conduct could consume the lives of millions.”
The only problem here is that we would need Republicans with balls to support removing Trump from office.
