Congresswoman makes strong case for invoking the 25th amendment on ‘paranoid’ Trump after latest outburst

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC with host Chris Jansing, Rep. Jackie Speier made an impassioned pitch to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Donald Trump from office following three days of outbursts from the volatile president.

A simple explanation of the 25th Amendment is that it provides the procedures for replacing the president or vice president in the event of death, removal, resignation, or incapacitation — and was ratified after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

“Obviously the president has been impacted by some of the things that Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says and may be in particular the intervention,” Jansing prompted. “Do you agree with her? Is there an insinuation about the president’s stability, his mental stability? What do you take away from all of this?”

“Well, I have felt for sometime that the mental stability of the president of the United States is in question,” Speier immediately replied. “And I suggested invoking the 25th Amendment way back when, when he was calling the leader of North Korea ‘Rocketman,’ and trying to gin up a war with North Korea.”

“And I think that what we have here is someone who is obsessed,” she continued. “He is obsessive in his behavior in terms of talking about the investigation, about impeachment. He is also very compulsive. So there have been plenty of psychiatrists and psychologists who have observed him now for over two and a half years that have made the diagnosis from afar that he is a malignant narcissist.”

“It’s anti-social behavior — paranoia and sadism. And I think you can find elements of all that,” she concluded.

Salvini, whose party is often at odds with their coalition partners, the Five Star Movement, played down his own role in cracking down on boats trying to save migrants crossing the Mediterranean from North Africa.

Pentagon releases photos saying it proves Iran was responsible for oil tanker fire

Published

on

The Pentagon is releasing high-resolution photos showing what they say proves mines were not the only cause of the oil tanker fire that President Donald Trump has alleged was an attack.

CNN Pentagon reporter Barbara Starr said that the Pentagon released the photos after so much doubt surrounded the allegations. The legacy of the war in Iraq has prompted many to speculate that the claim of an Iranian attack is part of a ploy by the Trump government, who is eager to go to war with Iran.

Masters of manipulation: the evolution of ‘puppy dog eyes’

Published

on

Ever wondered how dogs learned to use their "puppy eyes" to bend us to their will?

It turns out our pet pooches have evolved human-like eyebrow muscles, which let them make the sad faces that melt our hearts, according to a new study published on Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

It involved dissecting the cadavers of domestic dogs and comparing them to those of wild wolves, our best friends' ancestors, whom they branched off from around 33,000 years ago (don't worry, no animals were killed for the research).
