Can we (as in everyone, not just Duers) stop with this 25th amendment stuff? It's rediculous [View all]

The 25th Amendment is more difficult to impose on a President than impeaching him.

First thing you need is the support of the Vice President, then you need a majority of the cabinet. If the invocation of the 25th is contested by the President (which it most assuredly will by President* Trump), there must be a two thirds vote of BOTH the House and the Senate to remove him.

As is obvious, invoking the 25th is more difficult than impeachment, which, with nearly 50 Republican Senators seems next to impossible. The 25th is impossible. The more we talk about it, the worse off we are.
