1/I've posted concerns about the president's mental fitness for duty. This is not meant as a partisan attack. Others have written extensively on this and I will provide some references for further reading. I'd like to share my background, why I care, and why I'm alarmed.
2/As an RN I've cared for patients w/ various mental illnesses & dementia along the spectrum of coherence to psychosis & in the case of dementia: memory loss, anger, paranoia, confusion, eventually catatonia. Respect & compassion were always my practice along w/ self protection.
3/Mental illness is also personal. It is a multi-generational fact of my life. Sitting at the bedside of a sibling; matted hair, ragged clothing, open sores, cellulitis, uncontrolled crying-my heart breaking; I KNOW the value of conveying the inherent dignity of every person.

trump’s proprioception has significantly deteriorated. proprioception is the sense of where our body is in space without having to look. it’s regulated by many things, including the cerebellum, visual motor skills and the inner ear.
trump’s proprioception’s been fucked for awhile (remember when he clutched at theresa may to go down a slight incline?) + lines up with his inability to read (visual motor skills), which are symptoms of cognitive decline, but, holy shit, he used to be able to stand upright.
here’s a video from today. notice how, when the preacher removes his hand from trump’s back, trump stumbles and almost falls over. that’s someone who cannot keep themselves upright without assistance.

#Predictions for the rest of 2019:
1. Trump’s #dementia worsens.
2. Try as he may, Bolton fails to start war with #Iran.
3. Democratic candidates pick up seats in #NJLeg #KYLeg #VALeg #MSLeg & #LALeg.
4. Bots from Iran/Syria/Russia will wreck havoc on the Internet one day by retweeting like a DOS attack.
5. #Brexit will be extended yet again until 2020.
6. Interest rates will spike, but corporate stock buybacks will continue to prop up the stock market until late in the year.
6. Due to Trump’s tariffs on Chinese goods, other countries raise prices opportunistically. #Inflation heats up on durable goods and many other products. (H/t to Art Leonard)
7. School shootings return as usual.
8. No #InfrastructureWeek happens.

Former FBI general counsel James Baker testified that Rosenstein said 2 Trump cabinet members were willing to invoke the #25thAmendment to remove Trump from office.
Q: Was he joking?
BAKER: This was not a joking sort of time. This was pretty dark.
Q: Was there a concern at the FBI that [TRUMP] had fired Director Comey because he was trying to obstruct the FBI's investigation into the Russia matter?

Former FBI general counsel JIM BAKER: Yes.
Q: Who else was concerned that TRUMP fired Comey to obstruct the FBI's investigation?

BAKER: Leadership of the FBI, heads of the national security apparatus, national security folks within the FBI, people aware of the underlying investigation...

1. There is a recurrent trend on the #25thAmendment that I view as likely Russian influence propaganda. I conclude anyone with even minimal understanding of the Constitution knows that removal under the 25th for reasons that would fall under impeachment power is idiotic.
2. To impeach @POTUS @SpeakerPelosi needs ~218 votes presently. She likely has ~230 if current impeachment case was really teed up.
To invoke the 25th, first ~8 misfit toys in Trump Cabinet must grow a spine and @VP Sycophant agree. Then if Trump resists #Pelosi needs 286 votes.
3. So where there is any political resistance to removal, the 25th is much harder than impeachment. The 25th is really for the circumstances of a massive stroke that has the president in a coma. The signed document would likely end it. Congress unlikely to ever meet to vote.

If the boards are any indication of [NEXT WEEK], then we are in for a real treat!

"There’s no direct evidence of what that information was, but records show that at around the same time, Epstein was considered to be a crucial witness during the trial of two Bear Stearns executives"

Completely unrelated. Nice to know sick crimes overlooked for Bear Stearns.
An anon notes:

"If you're looking for the 2 cabinet members, you have to go back to early 2017."

@AlanDersh Ok. How is psychiatric incapacitation defined? My guess it that it has not been defined legally in the context of the 25th Amendment. If it has been defined, who determines if the criteria for incapacitation is met? An MD(s)? Who selects the evaluators?
@AlanDersh What is the bar for psychiatric incapacitation when it comes to the job of potus (upholding the constitution)? Surely, it should be lower than the bar for involuntary psychiatric inpatient admission. Surely, it should be lower than the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer’s.
@AlanDersh The question should be:
Are indicators of psychopathology (mental disorders, symptoms, syndromes, etc) present? What is the pathology. Is it causing impairment in functioning relevant to the duties of POTUS (upholding the constitution; commander + chief of the military).

Twitter is filled with lying sacks today. @AlanDersh did not say, at some level of high generality, that the 25th Amendment violates the #Constitution. I'm linking the video because I had to go watch to see exactly what was said.

As you can plainly hear, @alandersh made the point that the proposed invocation by #mccable, #rosenstein, and others, of the 25th Amendment would be unconstitutional. And he was correct in that assertion.
The 25th Amendment is not the "we are unhappy with you" amendment to the Constitution. It is the "unable to perform the duties of the office" due to disability amendment.

If you haven't laughed yet today, here's a video of President Trump walking up the stairs to Air Force One with toilet paper stuck to his shoe. While this isn't grounds for the #25thAmendment, it does fit the pattern of Trump just being a fucking idiot.

@jeffsessions reached out to #SCOTUS members for guidance on his recusal and how or if it was possible to fire #Rosenstein without lifting that recusal. Legal gymnastics behind the scenes by #Sessions to find a way to take action against #RR happened BEFORE @nytimes article.

Whomever it was in the FBI or DOJ who leaked this info appears to want Rosenstein fired and the Mueller investigation stopped. This article, while credible, has deeply disturbing timing. It just reeks of Trump et al... #FridayFeeling #25thAmendment
2/"Mr. Rosenstein made the remarks about secretly recording Mr. Trump and about the 25th Amendment in meetings and conversations with other Justice Department and F.B.I. officials. Several people described the episodes, insisting on anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.
3/"The people were briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by F.B.I. officials, including Andrew G. McCabe, then the acting bureau director, that documented Mr. Rosenstein’s actions and comments."

People used to say to me, Obama is so stupid or crazy. I would reply, no he's not. It only seems that way looking though the prism of our ideals, clearly he has different goals.
A "fundamental change" that we conservatives didn't want...therefore seems crazy or stupid to us.
That doesn't make Obama insane or unfit for office, by way of mental capacity at least. That's where the #25thAmendment comes into play.
Same thing applies to Trump. Democrats don't like what Trump is doing... So he must be insane 🙄
Fact is, Trump is doing everything he campaigned on. How refreshing in reality!

Not even the Anointed One 🙄 can say that.

In the days after Comey's firing, DAG Rosenstein suggested that he secretly record Trump to expose the chaos consuming the administration, and he discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the #25thAmendment to remove Trump from office for being unfit
A hit job, with the NYT the willing accomplice.

Clears the way for Trump to (try to) shut down the special counsel's investigation, just as key dominoes are falling.
This supports the statement (buried in the NYT piece) provided by DOJ from a person who was present, who said Rosenstein made the remark sarcastically

Rod Rosenstein suggested last year that he secretly record Trump to expose "chaos" consuming the administration & discussed recruiting cabinet members to invoke the #25thAmendment.

Will Trump use this as an excuse to fire Rosenstein⁉️…
Rosenstein made his remarks about the #25thAmendment & secretly recording Trump in meetings & conversations w/other DOJ & FBI officials. Several people (briefed either on the events themselves or on memos written by FBI officials, including McCabe) described the episodes.🤨
Rosenstein reportedly told McCabe that he might be able to persuade Jeff Sessions & John Kelly to mount an effort to invoke the #25thAmendment.

All of these incidents allegedly occurred around the time that @Comey was fired. Rosenstein was very distressed & felt he was used.🤔
