About that $600 which 88% of America is getting...it's not "free" money as the conTARDs are saying it is. It's actually an advance on your 2020 refund. I knew it was odd that McTurtle would agree to it.

The best thing they could do now, is to invoke Amendment 25 and send Trump (by force if necessary) off to a secure funny farm for a little old fashioned anti-psychotic drug therapy and a strong dose of reality. At least until the 21st. Pence can be caretaker for the next 13 days. He actually did a fine job yesterday. I was proud of him, for once. Must be wonderful to get that smell out of his nose.

Mitt made a pretty good speech, too. He said the best way to respect the Trump voters is to tell them the truth.

I read a bit more on what Amendment 25 can actually do with a President who isn't in a coma, and it looks like it is only effective for about four days unless Congress is dead set on extending it. So Amendment 25 takes him out immediately as impeachment works it's way through the process.

One interesting thing is that as acting President, Pence would not be able to pardon anybody (because Trump would still be President, just stripped of his powers). Once impeachment and removal was complete, Pence WOULD be President with the power to pardon for federal crimes. I wonder if that might be incentive for impeachment for somebody, either in executive positions or Congress. But maybe that's giving too much credit to those people.

That sounds like the best of both worlds: Pence "acting" President with no pardon power and Trump stripped of all of his power.
