    Lawmaker Urges Trump’s Cabinet To Have Him Undergo Mental Health Evaluation

    Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) isn’t a psychiatrist, but she wants the president to see one.


    A new resolution introduced in the House of Representatives would encourage the vice president and the Cabinet to have President Donald Trump undergo a physical and mental health exam to determine if he is stable enough to stay in office.

    Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) introduced the resolution on Friday. Should the results of said exam be unfavorable, the resolution calls for Vice President Mike Pence and members of the Cabinet to remove Trump from office.

    The move would invoke the 25th Amendment, a rarely used constitutional provision that allows the vice president and a majority of Cabinet members to jointly remove the president from office and replace him with the vice president.

    In a statement announcing the resolution, Lofgren asked if the president suffers “from early stage dementia.”

    “Has emotional disorder so impaired the President that he is unable to discharge his duties,” she continued. “Is the President mentally and emotionally stable?”

    Lofgren pointed out that Trump has not yet released a “serious” medical evaluation to the public.

    Lofgren, who represents California’s 19th District, is not a professional psychiatrist or psychologist, according to Mercury News.

    She doesn’t expect the resolution to pass, but she told the newspaper “it will stimulate conversation,” adding that Trump would get the evaluation if “he cares about the country.”

    Lofgren has often criticized Trump’s remarks and policies throughout his presidency. The representative suggested on Tuesday that “something is seriously wrong with President Trump,” responding to his off-the-cuff remarks on the Charlottesville white supremacist riot made during an impromptu Q&A with reporters in New York.

    “Why can’t he just condemn Nazis,” she asked on Twitter. “Unscripted words today show who he really is. Shameful!”

    Lofgren isn’t the first politician or critic to suggest invoking the 25th Amendment to boot the 45th president out of the White House.

    In June, Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) led 25 House Democrats to co-sign a bill that would create a congressional commission able to oust Trump from the Oval Office under the amendment. Commenting on his bill, Raskin told Yahoo News “in case of emergency, break glass.”

    Articles and op-eds exploring the 25th Amendment in detail have also been published in the Washington Post, Rolling Stone, New York Times and Time Magazine since Trump took office. Meanwhile, Trump has continued to draw ire across the country for issues such as his harsh policies on immigration, his travel bans agains people from predominantly Muslim countries, his push to pass health care bills that would lead to millions losing coverage and his remarks suggesting there were “fine people” among those attending a white supremacist rally.

    This summer, the hashtag #25thAmendment began trending on Twitter.

    That’s why Lofgren is calling for Pence and other Cabinet members to “quickly secure ... medical and psychiatric professionals” to evaluate Trump’s mental health and any possible impairments.

    “If it was a physical ailment, you would be getting the advice of doctors,” Lofgren told Mercury News. “The same thing should be true to take a look at his stability here.”

    CORRECTION: A previous version of this story mischaracterized the resolution. It is not a bill, and its text “urges” but does not mandate that the president undergo mental health evaluation.

    She has joined a chorus of voices that have been saying this. They're being ignored.

    So, does anyone know what the personal smear of Ivanka's private life was in that Breitbart email prank? CNN is refusing to publish it. All I read in the emails is something about Jared modeling lego man hair. I'm confused.

    That she's cheating on Jared, according to other sources. Cuck being their favourite slur, it isn't really surprising.

    Really wouldn't be surprised. She's exactly like her father, except she can act.

    Apparently we are suppose to feel bad for this woman because us poor folk have NO idea how much her and her husband have sacrificed and how much they are have contributed to the economy. Are you kidding me? Steven Mnuchin is worth an estimated $300-$500 million dollars. Yeah, they've probably paid more in taxes than me, but shit, he's worth a whole hell of a lot more. They SHOULD pay more in taxes than the average person, that's how it's suppose to work. She grew up in a Scottish castle so I'm pretty sure she has NO idea how anyone outside her ridiculously privileged life lives. But, yeah, I should feel bad for her....

    She also wrote a autobiography full of lies. She is perfect for the Trump team

    an's time spent volunteering in Zambia as a teenager. Louise Linton wrote about caring for an HIV-positive orphan and hiding out from murderous rebels. Sounds terrifying — except people say her story doesn't add up.

    Linton is a Scottish-born actress and producer who currently lives in Los Angeles. Her online biography says she has degrees in journalism and law. She self-published her memoir, In Congo's Shadow, in April.
    The Daily Telegraph / Via telegraph.co.uk
    Linton is a Scottish-born actress and producer who currently lives in Los Angeles. Her online biography says she has degrees in journalism and law. She self-published her memoir, In Congo's Shadow, in April.
    The book's description bills it as "the inspiring memoir of an intrepid teenager who abandoned her privileged life in Scotland to travel to Zambia as a gap year student where she found herself inadvertently caught up on the fringe of the Congolese War." One major point of dispute is Linton's recounting of two raids by Congolese rebels."Taken by surprise, I spent a night huddled with others in an old straw hut, hoping not to be found as we listened to the engines of the rebel boats drawing near," she writes.


    Linton writes of her concern for Zimba, the HIV-positive orphan girl with whom she forged a "special bond." (Linton describes her as a "smiling gap-toothed child with HIV whose greatest joy was to sit on my lap and drink from a bottle of Coca-Cola.")


    Linton later recounts a second rebel attack that caused her to flee into the jungle, where "gunshots echoed through the bush and seemed to be getting closer."


    She says she left Zambia after that attack.


    However, many people in Zambia and from other countries in the region say there are no records of Congolese rebels invading Zambian villages the way Linton describes.
    Linton's claims about rebel raids aren't the only points of dispute in the short Telegraph excerpt. She writes about "the Hutu-Tutsi conflict in neighboring Congo." That conflict took place in Rwanda.

    He sure had fun! I couldn't take my eyes of him. He totally stole the limelight.
