Joe Scarborough once again cited the 25th Amendment as a way to remove President Donald Trump from office on “Morning Joe” Thursday, but said the cabinet doesn’t have enough “character” to go through with it.
“It is a bizarre world, Mika, that we all …. a political world we’re all a part of. And it reminds me, yesterdays’ press conference reminded me of the story about putting the frog in a pot of water, turning it to a slow boil,” he said. “The frog, not realizing what was happening, and pretty soon it’s at a full boil and the frog dies.”
“Again, if, if, if — and it’s a big if — if we had a cabinet that was filled with people with more character, so many that had character have been fired. And If we had a House and a Senate that took their job seriously, there would be people going up to the White House this morning saying, ‘Mr. President, questions abound whether you were fit for this office. If this continues, we are going to ask your cabinet to take a vote on whether you were fit for office and invoke the 25th amendment,'” he added.
Scarborough said if any of the past presidents acted the way Trump did, their competency would have been called into question immediately. (RELATED: Joe Scarborough Continues To Dish Out Presidential Predictions, Says Trump Would ‘Lose Badly’ In 2020)
“If any of the 44 presidents had behaved that way, then those questions would have been raised,” he said. “If Barack Obama had done that in 2013, those questions would have been raised by Republicans. They would have probably tried to start impeachment hearings … This is a man who obviously is not fit to hold the office and we’ve known that for a very long time.”
“But he keeps giving, Mika, a preponderance of evidence to those cabinet members and members of the House and the Senate that would carry that vote. He is not fit, he is not acting fit and he is pushing foreign policy initiatives that are actually going to do grave damage to this country, our national security and embolden and strengthen our enemies,” Scarborough concluded.
