White House press secretary Sarah Sanders smacked the media during Monday’s press briefing after she was asked about using the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump from office.
“What does the president make of all this talk of the 25th Amendment and some of what he hears on media outlets regarding the word ‘crazy talk?'” a reporter asked Sanders. “It seems there’s a lot of talk about that on many of the mainstream media outlets.”
“I think we would say that it’s about as ridiculous as most of Bob Woodward’s book,” Sanders fired back. “The fact that that’s being honestly discussed is ridiculous and frankly it’s insulting to the nearly 62 million people that came out and overwhelmingly supported this president, voted for him, supported his agenda, and are watching and cheering on as he successfully implements that agenda every single day.”
The 25th Amendment is comprised of four sections, which outline what happens to the presidency if the president dies, resigns, or becomes disabled or incapacitated.
