“Donald Trump’s campaign against his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, in which he is seemingly attempting to insult and humiliate and tweet-shame Sessions into resignation, is an insanely stupid exercise.”
Donald Trump’s attempt to humiliate and shame Jeff Sessions, his Attorney General, into resignation is an incredibly idiotic pursuit. The Trump Administration has a very clear agenda that was committed during the campaign and the Attorney General's office is a place where that agenda is being strongly implemented. The fact there is discussion about the possible firing of Sessions is a remarkable statement. This is a demonstration of disloyalty that sends a message to the people in Trump’s office and also resurfaces the connections with Russia. Trump wants to rid Sessions because he has not protected Trump during the times of the Russian investigations, but this suggests he had something to hide. This whole scenario and discussion is madness and if any other president behaved like this during his presidential term, they might have been justified to be removed under the 25th amendment. Megan McArdle states, “Imagine, if you will, that George W. Bush had started acting like Donald Trump partway into his second term …. Is there any question that people would be talking about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him? Not for political reasons, but because it would be obvious that some tragic mental impairment had befallen the commander in chief”. Trump has not experienced any mental health illness, but he has clearly been impaired by something, which points to an inescapable conclusion: Donald Trump should not be the President.
