George Conway has not slowed down in his criticism of President Donald Trump. The Republican attorney who happens to also be married to Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway Wednesday afternoon responded to Trump’s explosive pity party with a tweet.

That tweet was the section of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that explains how the Vice President can step in to have a president removed from office in case he becomes unfit to serve.

Conway’s message was clear.

Here’s the beginning of that text:

And here’s Conway’s tweet:

Conway, minutes later, retweeted a Trump tweet and added a link to Walter Reed Hospital’s Adult Inpatients Psychiatry Services, apparently telegraphing that he thinks President Trump is mentally unwell and in need of care.

Citing polls in which GOP incumbents are tied or trailing their Democratic opponents, Enten noted that Biden holds leads in those states and his popularity could sweep the down-ticket Democrats into the office too, handing Democrats control of the Senate to go along with the House where they are expected to remain in control.
