If there is one silver lining in the media’s freakout over Trump’s tweet, it is that the press is learning the U.S. Constitution. They are now clinging to the 25th Amendment as their hope for ending Trump.

Not about parties
Call Section 4 of 25th Amendment
Not fit to be POTUS.
GOP controls congress, POTUS still theirs, that's fine. Not this. https://t.co/31W9l1rZgO

The entertainment world chimed in as well.
25th Amendment. https://t.co/KM4KeakQlI

Part of Section 4 of the 25th Amendment reads:
“Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of the his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.”
The desperation of the left to undo an election is now focused on the #25thAmendment. The election happened. Be adults and deal with it.

Now that so many members of the media have taken a look at the Constitution, hopefully they will read the whole thing and find out what a brilliant document it is.
