Bill allowing creation of panel to assess Trump’s fitness as president gains support

President Trump's Thursday Twitter attack on MSNBC's hosts has, for some, raised concerns about his ability to serve the country.

A group of Democratic Representatives has been worried about that for some time.

Over 20 House Democrats are backing a bill that would create a congressional 'oversight' commission that could declare the president incapacitated, which could result in his removal from office by way of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

According to the Cornell University Law School website, "The 25th Amendment, proposed by Congress and ratified by the states in the aftermath of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, provides the procedures for replacing the president or vice president in the event of death, removal, resignation, or incapacitation."

Employing that option is entirely uncharted territory.

Nonetheless, Representative Jamie Raskin, the bill's chief sponsor, believes it's an avenue worth exploring.

He told Yahoo News, "If you look at the record of things that have happened since January, it is truly a bizarre litany of events and outbursts. I assume every human being is allowed one or two errant and seemingly deranged tweets. The question is whether you have a sustained pattern of behavior that indicates something is seriously wrong."

Though President Trump has made many comments on Twitter that some have found questionable, his Thursday statements have received widespread and bipartisan condemnation.

The tweets read, "I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!"
