I'm sure he'll get plenty stupid tonight at his rally in Arizona.

It is tough to imagine that the crazy could become worse than it has been, but the last two weeks have been off the chart.  From Charlottesville and his racist ramblings, to the new 'strategy' (bring back mini-skirts) in Afghanistan, to his, literally, insane speech last night.

I had incredibly low expectations of his presidency, but this is worse than anything I imagined.

Quote from: Ammendment XXV Section 4 of the US Consitution
Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

was on a family vacation a few weeks ago; one of my brothers-in-law (a health insurance exec in PA) is convinced that trump will be re-elected by a substantial margin.  i think my BIL's letting his cynicism get the better of him, because i don't see how trump keeps this up, but i can't believe he was elected in the first place, so what do i know. the only good news about trump so far is that we haven't started a new war. also don't think he will resign. he'll be dragged out, kicking and screaming.

Hopefully when it comes to your next election there won't be any wall, or the start of it. No healthcare repeal/reform, basically no major wins.  Just a series of rants and more people quitting.  This assumes it doesn't blow up before then.

Ammendment XXV Section 4 of the US Consitution

I'm not sure that while Trump is conscious and able to speak that using the provisions in this amendment would work (and it would be a massive risk to try it without being certain). The "powers and duties of his office" aren't really defined and Trump could argue that he has been attempting to do what he was elected to do. The best way to get rid of him is surely impeachment.

I mentioned it because it is being widely talked about.  While the short term implications make sense it is not good from a long term POV.

And now Trump's transgender military ban is in writing and should be headed to Mattis shortly.

http://www.losangelesblade.com/2017/08/04/trumps-trans-military-ban-now-policy/

Quote
President Donald Trump may be on a 17- day vacation but his White House has been scrambling to hand him a “win” by the time he returns. Trump’s tweets last week announcing a ban on transgender individuals serving openly in the U.S. military was turned into a “guidance” policy for implementation that passed muster with the White House Counsel’s office Friday night. Approved by Trump, the new policy is expected to be now delivered into the hands of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who has been quiet on the issue with approximately 15,000 trans servicemembers under his command.

After his review, Mattis is expected to order a deliberate implementation by the Pentagon, which could take a period of time.

Though the policy—called “A Guidance Policy for Open Transgender Service Phase Out”—has not yet been made public, sources familiar with the planning said it would encourage early retirement, usher out any enlisted personnel after their contract is up, and would fire trans officers up for promotion. Basically, said a source, “the administration want to get rid of transgender servicemembers as fast as they can.”

No one yet knows what will happen to the servicemembers currently fighting in combat. The new policy does allow trans servicemembers to continue serving but apparently does not offer any protection from harassment or other efforts to get them to quit.

Fuck Trump. Just fuck this guy.

Interestingly, Mattis today issued a memorandum to all DoD personnel about ethics.

It... almost... reads like Mattis may be prepared to ignore the order. Seems unlikely as fuck, but maybe?  I mean, one is expected to disobey unethical or unlawful orders...

Mattis sorta thumbed his nose at Trump a bit here. :D
