'He's A Psychopath': Trump Insider Says Military Will Haul Trump Out Of The White House | MSNBC 1

 

Trump’s “Art of the Deal” co-author Tony Schwartz argues “anything goes” for “psychopath” President Trump, and believes Trump will not leave the White House if he loses the election because giving up is “unthinkable” for him. This comes as Joe Biden says his “greatest concern” is that Trump would look to “steal” the 2020 election, and is “absolutely convinced” the military “will escort” Trump “from The White House with great dispatch.” Schwartz argues he has “no doubt that Trump will do everything he possibly can,” to “try to steal this election.” (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 6/11/2020.

    The Southern District of NY is waiting for Orange Cheeto.

    “Peaceful transfer of power distinctly American????” Do people seriously believe that there are no other countries where that happens???

    • @Geography in Action Well, are you sure? the french revolution started on July 14, 1789 and the Déclaration des Droits de l’Homme et du Citoyen (human rights) was drafted on August 26, 1789. However, the official first day of the first republic of France was September 22, 1792. Wasn’t the first day of the United States July 4th, 1776 or was it when the Constitution was adopted in 1788? It looks like France started with a text and then became a Republic whereas America started with independence and then came up with a text. Talk about a tangent….what were we talking about?

      The average American tends to be rather self-centered, and the “non-communist” rest of the world has little importance or interest to him/her/them…. EXCEPT when “they” are laughing at MURICA!!!!

    • @Bronce Retriever Isn’t that what all those amendments are about? being the ‘est’ is an American thing. The biggest, the best, the richest, the mostest powerful, the oldest, the newest, etc. It’s an American thing. I got curious about the “oldest democracy” because I remembered something about the Greeks… and the Swiss. Also, these ideas of other-than-kingdom-type governments came from people like Locke in England and Montesquieu in France. It wasn’t called the Age of Enlightenment (le Siècle des Lumières) for nothing.

      It truthfully baffles me that people would still waste their time with a so called media outlet that would say something so incredibly stupid. In fact it is so grave that we can be sure that everything they say has to be questioned.

  5. It boggles the mind that we, supposedly the “greatest country in the world” has no protections in place for this sort of thing. Pathetic!

    • @Patrick S The usual pathetic response. How about some originality?

      @Not Rappaport There is a provision in the 25th Amendment that could be used to remove him:
      Presidential psychology is a bipartisan issue.

      Several people CLOSE TO TRUMP AND OTHERS have voiced the opinion that President Donald Trump is “not right mentally.” Shortly thereafter, 35 mental health professionals — psychiatrists, psychologists
      and social workers — took to the pages of the New York Times to register their own concerns that the President was demonstrating “grave emotional
      instability.”
      These controversial armchair diagnoses are powerless on their own.
      But what if there was something that Congress and the concerned members could actually do?

      Constitutionally speaking, there might be.

      Much has been written in recent weeks about a provision in Section 4 of
      the 25th Amendment that allows the Vice President and a majority of the
      Cabinet to send a letter to Congress stating that the President is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” This letter would
      immediately initiate a transfer of power to the Vice President, subject to additional Congressional review.
      While theoretically possible, it is highly unlikely that Vice President Pence and the Cabinet would unite to remove the President absent a clear incapacitation along the lines President Woodrow Wilson experienced after a stroke. Even if there was a bipartisan consensus that he was unfit to serve,

      THE PRESIDENT WOULD HAVE BROAD AUTHORITY TO REMOVE HIS CABINET BEFORE IT COULD TAKE ANY ACTION.

      But there is another provision in the Amendment that has received much less popular attention — one that could allow Congress to play a role in
      removing the President. *

      And no, it isn’t impeachment. Instead, a little known
      provision in Section 4: IT EMPOWERS CONGRESS TO FORM ITS OWN BODY TO EVALUATE THE PRESIDENT’S FITNESS for office, eliminating the need for the Cabinet’s involvement in the process:

      But what constitutional constraints are put on this power?
      Remarkably, there aren’t any.

      The framers of the 25th Amendment left the provision
      purposely vague, allowing Congress flexibility to decide on its specifics at a later date.

      There are two ways that Congress could still act on this provision.

      The first approach would be to appoint a panel of INDEPENDENT MEDICAL PRACTITIONERS to judge the health of American presidents.

      Former president
      Jimmy Carter has been a strong advocate for this approach, noting the advanced age and poor health of many U.S. presidents. Since the 1990s,Carter has expressed particular concern about the conflict of interests faced by the personal physicians to the President, who might otherwise be tasked with making a determination about medical fitness.
      These physicians often have personal relationships with the presidents they treat. (Carter’s was his tennis partner.)

      This seems to be the case with President Trump, whose own personal physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, famously wrote a bizarre four-paragraph letter raving about Trump’s “astonishingly excellent” health.

      He later said that he wrote this letter in five minutes
      while riding in a limousine paid for by Trump himself.

      A second approach would be for Congress to appoint a body with no medical expertise whatsoever. Because the 25th Amendment does not
      require a medical diagnosis or consultation with medical professionals, Congress could even appoint members of its own ranks to the panel. This approach could give Congress the ability to enforce its own criteria for presidential fitness.
      For example, Congress could deem the President
      “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office” if he is unable to be trusted with classified information by intelligence agencies.

      Congress could even use the threat of removal to exercise additional leverage over the President’s actions.
      This approach would raise grave constitutional and moral questions about the proper role of Congress in our democracy.
      Moreover, in addition to sign-off from the Vice President, this path would likely require supermajorities in both houses of Congress to override a presidential veto,
      FURTHER UNDERSCORING THE IMPROBABILITY OF SUCH A MOVE.
      Despite the long odds, President Trump’s erratic behavior has led many — including constitutional scholar and Harvard Law Professor Laurence Tribe — to start talking about whether the President is
      fit to discharge the duties of his office under the meaning of the 25th Amendment.

      While such conversations may be premature, it is important to understand the constitutional mechanisms that would allow removal of
      a president if a broad bipartisan consensus emerges that he or she is unable to lead our nation.
      A Petition was submitted to congress on January 8, 2020
      https://worldmhc.org/urgent-communication-to-congress/

      There has been no action taken by congress. If you agree with the fact that THE PSYCHOLOGICAL DANGEROUSNESS OF DONALD J. TRUMP is a threat to America, start emailing, writing to and calling your reps and senators and demand that they take action immediately!

Money laundering is a major crime, and so is bank fraud. Trump stole from a child’s cancer fund. You know he is nor clean. Give me a break.

      Yeah, because the American Revolution was a peaceful transfer of power.

    • @PAULA GAJEWSKI The pride Americans have in a “peaceful transition of power” dates to 1801 when John Adams (Federalist), who had lost to Thomas Jefferson (Democratic-Republican) oversaw the transition from his administration to Jefferson’s. First time in history.

  11. This is the game:
    The conservative movement has continued with its long-term project to transform the U.S. into an undemocratic, quasi-authoritarian plutocracy. That would be the group of far-right lawyers who started the Federalist Society, …They developed the theory of the “unitary executive,”

    Barr and his legal cabal appear to have seen the clueless and corrupt Donald Trump as a perfect instrument to test their theory, and perhaps set legal precedents that would enable future right-wing presidents to use the full power of the presidency to dominate American politics without regard to democratic norms or congressional checks and balances. Indeed, they had been setting the stage for such a man for decades.

    Distinctly and uniquely American? Hundres of democracies around the world be like: Que?

    • NewYork2Havana | June 13, 2020 at 8:57 PM | Reply

      I don’t know there are hundreds of democracies around the world. Anyway, in banana republics, elections are highly overrated. For example, in 1958 elections were held in Cuba that gave the victory to the Batista-supported candidate. OMG what a joke. Days later, Fidel Castro was in power with the overwhelming support of the people.

    • That popped out at me too; the unmitigated faux patriotism of unlimited rhetorical hubris regarding “American greatness”, often called “American exceptionalism” is common in corporate news circles, but particularly ironic in the context of attacking Trump’s authoritarianism, because it’s exactly the kind of hubris which is at the very core of Trump’s psychopathy.
      What is on display right in our faces but we’re assumed to be too brainwashed to see, is the fact that the hubris they demonstrate, in perfect alignment with the American mythology constantly pushed by the establishment they are part of, Trump’s ugly style notwithstanding, is the very mythology that Trump is also in perfect alignment with. His ugly delivery, which he does seem incapable of hiding, might make them cringe- but all it does is fail to disguise the rot at the center of the system of government/corporate power that’s as much in their DNA as it is in his; they’re quite comfortable with the greed and evil he represents, but would prefer to hide it as they cash in, not flamboyantly, defiantly flaunt it like the insecure moron who paints himself orange to hide his pale complexion. They have no clue about the irony of themselves demonstrating the fatal flaws they share with the faux human they’re calling out.

    • Greg Vinson , Your point is that America shouldn’t be great, and Corporations are corrupt and need to be destroyed. Is that right? Where is the tax money coming from if not from businesses? I thought that might have been one of the lessons that Covid taught liberals

      Runewolf 77 Yes you’re right I don’t have positive proof. Only what I heard on my local news report. Trump was peddling that conspiracy though, and he also had no proof of it being true. That information didn’t come from the police. He likes too stir up trouble with his followers on Twitter or someone tweets him something and he goes with it, without proof. Just look at what he Tweeted about that 75 year old man, that the police officers pushed so hard they cracked his skull. The last I heard he was still in the hospital. Trump was claiming him to be some kind of terrorist.

      All my family and friends have the same opinion. Trump wouldn’t relinquish his power.
      The Amerikkan Militia has been assembling quietly in order to protect the psychopath in Chief.
      I might be wrong, but everything points to that direction. November 3th will be a day to reckon with.

  19. Hey, really not a great idea to lie about the US. The USA is most certainly not unique in peaceful transfer of power

  20. “The peaceful transfer of power is distinctly and UNIQUELY American”
    What?
    Bollocks!
    We have been doing it in the UK for centuries and long before we founded the country you now own Pal. We have a General Election on a Thursday and have a new Government on a Friday. It helps we have a Monarch as Head of State as she is the constancy that makes our democracy work. You lot are in permanent election mode, have reduced the political art to the lowest level anywhere in the world and it costs you $100s of Bns.
    I am sure the US Founding Fathers are sat somewhere smiling at the conflict they created.
