House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), during her weekly press conference Thursday, told reporters that she intends to talk about the 25th Amendment, ahead of the November election, following questions regarding President Donald Trump’s health as he recovers from coronavirus, Swamp Drain previously reported.
The 25th Amendment allows for the vice president to become acting president if is determined that the president “is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”
“Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow, come here tomorrow,” Nancy Pelosi said. “We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment.”

Meanwhile, some Republicans also hit back at Pelosi on Twitter:

The fact Nancy Pelosi mentioned the 25th Amendment today shows she is willing to to pervert it in the same way she was the Impeachment Clause.
Democrats should never have power.

Not sure what’s more ridiculous:
-Defunding the police
-Invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the President from office 26 days before the election.
The Democrats have lost their minds.

First it was the Russia hoax, then sham impeachment. Now she’s trying to invoke the 25th amendment because he… fully recovered from the coronavirus?
We won’t let her get away with it.https://t.co/L9fRPFpynC

Congressional Democrats have not stopped their quest to remove President @realDonaldTrump from office since the day he was sworn into office, working night and day to overturn the will of Americans.
Here is another installment of their pathetic series. https://t.co/ZvM2pZGjHl

I wouldn’t put it past @SpeakerPelosi to stage a coup.
She has already weaponized impeachment, what’s to keep her from weaponizing the 25th amendment?
We need a new Speaker! https://t.co/W2j3GP3Imt

Hey @SpeakerPelosi President Trump is more than capable of carrying out his duties. @realDonaldTrump is WINNING as one of the greatest President in US history.
And he is beating covid.
But you are failing as one of the WORST Speakers of the House in our history.#25thAmendment https://t.co/9B2JnIlotf

If Joe Biden is really winning, why is Nancy Pelosi talking about invoking the 25th Amendment?
— thebradfordfile™ (@thebradfordfile) October 8, 2020
If Joe Biden was really up 14 points nationwide, I don't think Democrats would need to be talking about invoking the 25th Amendment against Trump.
Their diversion tactics are getting desperate at this point.
