Donald Trump’s election was certainly unexpected by anyone following the polls, and Hillary Clinton devotees immediately began scrambling to find a way to undo the result of the election. The Resistance quickly questioned Trump’s mental state and asked whether he could be removed from office under the 25th Amendment.
That’s gotten a lot of play in the media and among activist celebrities; Rob Reiner probably got things rolling even before the election, questioning Trump’s mental state in August 2016. Joe Scarborough suddenly diagnosed Trump with mental illness in June of 2017. CNN’s Brian Stelter kept the question alive on his network, doing a thorough tweet-by-tweet analysis of the president’s tweets and coming away deeply concerned.
If we were watching this unfold from some other country, we'd question the US president's wellness. "Is the president okay?" pic.twitter.com/9XsHAC9L0f

You’ve probably forgotten this, but in October 2017, 125 mental health professionals under the banner “Duty to Warn” marched to demand that Trump be removed from office over his mental state; they even made a mini-documentary to prove their case.
So we’d like to welcome Bill Kristol to the party, although he’s probably already suggested Trump is mentally incapacitated, but the president’s tweets Sunday really have him wondering.
To Republicans who've been inclined to acquiesce in a Trump re-nomination in 2020: Read his tweets this morning. Think seriously about his mental condition and psychological state. Then tell me you're fine with him as president of the United States for an additional four years.

Right after you read the list of judges he's appointed.

You know what? The MAGA crowd and #NeverTrump can fight all day on Twitter, but conservatives have seen results from this administration — enough so that Democrats are suggesting they’ll pack the Supreme Court if elected in 2020 and eliminate the Electoral College.
Maybe … some people like Trump and what he’s doing and don’t see any signs of mental incapacitation?
Kristol certainly has the Democrats’ attention; will he come to their aid?
Bill, you've been a good, strong voice for the resistance against the dangerous, corrupt madman in office. Now what we need from you is to support the Dem nominee with all of your soul, all of your strength and voice so we can knock the madman from office & put things right.

The conservative party in 1930s Germany believed they could leverage Hitler's base to win, then drop Hitler after gaining power. Inevitably, Hitler destroyed the party, enabled by conservatives in power. Of course, history is repeating itself.

I didn't think he should have been allowed to serve the first ½ term. Most #Republicans didn't believe he'd win. He squeaked by on default by incredulity.That's why it happened.

We know the GOP loves all this looting they're doing.

They want power for the sake of power. They are the opposite of patriotic Americans. They are in it for themselves. They along with their patron saint Trump could not care less about a single issue affecting a single citizen in the USA 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Sounds like a lot of people agreeing with Kristol are talking about “they” and “them,” not Donald Trump. So are we really going to do this thing where media primadonnas like Jim Acosta suddenly show concern for the legacy of Mitt Romney, John McCain, and the Bushes? Because the GOP candidates you said had anger issues or daddy issues or were too dumb to serve you all seem to like just fine now.
Better him than one of the liberal, progressive Democrats vying for the chance to take him on.
But, we all know you'd vote for a card-carrying communist before you'd vote for Trump.

Take heart. In 7 years you can vote for AOC.

Seriously, when it comes down to Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump, you’re going to vote for the socialist to save conservatism?
Now if you want to talk about crazy tweets, we have a few young Democrats we’d like to introduce you to.
