Fire Up The 25th Amendment. And Fire Those Doctors!

Mandatory Credit: Photo by Manuel Balce Ceneta/AP/Shutterstock (10457627b) President Donald Trump speaks in the Diplomatic Room of the White House in Washington, announcing that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the shadowy leader of the Islamic State group who presided over its global jihad and became arguably the world's most wanted man, is dead after being targeted by a U.S. military raid in Syria Trump, Washington, USA - 27 Oct 2019

OK, fuck it, this is just ridiculous. 2:30 PDT on a Sunday afternoon, and out of nowhere, and for no previously announced medical or logical reason, Trump’s motorcade crawls out of the front driveway like they’re trying out for the role of the tortoise in the race with the hare. Nobody had the slightest idea of where it was going, back to the White House, Front Lawn, a KFC run? What was going on?

It turns out that the Jackass in Chief saw on television that there was a mob of brainless slobs across the street waving Trump signs, so he decided to go on a drive by, and give them a cheap thrill. That’s all it was, Stupid needed a pseudo group hug through the window of the car.

How is this humanly possible? Trump is a positive tested, symptomatic, walking, talking coronavirus sprinkler system. Any of you guys ever have the mumps? Chicken Pox? I did, and I had a brother two years younger than me. In my mothers house, quarantine meant fucking quarantine! My world consisted of my four bedroom walls, and the bathroom. It didn’t matter if it was 80 degrees outside, I wasn’t sitting on the porch with a book, much less going for a spin. And here’s Trump, out cruising the strip in a Sunday afternoon, looking for pity. What the fuck?!?

This is nothing short of obscene. Forget the fact that everybody who was in that vehicle with Trump is now under mandatory quarantine for the next 14 days. They didn’t just pull that Suburban through the doors, and into his room. Mask or no mask, Trump had to walk through hallways, and take an elevator to get to his car, and then reverse his steps when his selfish ass got back. Trump has potentially compromised the sterility of everyplace he went.

There’s no longer any choice. The trigger has to be pulled on the 25th Amendment. In his actions today, Trump fully displayed his complete inability to make a sane, responsible decision on an important matter. Trump’s ass is bored silly in the hospital, so he used his authority for a day trip of pure self indulgence, placing all those around him in danger. What’s he going to do next? Order the Marines to the Olduvai gorge to restore order to the dig sites? The man’s judgement can no longer be trusted, if it ever could.

But I’m just as pissed at the idiot doctors who let Trump pull off this bullshit stunt in the first place. Last time I checked, if you go to the doctor, it’s the doctor who is in charge. If you tell your doctor to go and pound sand over a proposed course of treatment, that normally means that the doctor isn’t treating you anymore. Home you go, good luck, and Godspeed. And that was the only sane course of action for Trump’s medical team. If Trump insisted on his little jaunt, he should have been presented with a form to sign checking himself out, and returned to the White House for continuing treatment there. As far as I’m concerned, anyone who can trace their Covid back to the hallways of Walter Reed after Trump’s passage should be allowed to sue Trump’ medical team for malpractice. And there should be ethical sanctions coming down the pike from the medical association as well.

It’s not like this should come as any kind of a shock. Trump put his full instability on display last Tuesday night in the debate, and it turned his 8 point deficit into a 14 point deficit in the NBC poll. Biden opened his lead in the category of judgement. Trump has lost whatever tenuous grasp he ever had with reality. It’s time to pull the plug before something happens that can’t be undone. Enough is enough.

Hospital room / prison cell. Either works for me. If he has to be quarantined the 25 amendment should have already been invoked. But with trump he will have to die first, they will remain scared untill he is gone. Total break down.
