Joe Scarborough said that people who are close to President Donald Trump have said he has shown early signs of dementia, he called on the Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Trump from office.
While speaking passionately on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Thursday, Scarborough said Trump is “completely detached from reality” and fueling the threat of a war with North Korea, making his presidency dangerous for U.S. citizens.
“If this is not what the 25th Amendment was drafted for — I would like the Cabinet members serving America, not the president, serving America— you serve America and you know it,” Scarborough said. “You know you don’t serve Donald J. Trump, scam developer, scam you know Trump University proprietor, reality TV show host, you don’t represent him. You represent 320 million people whose lives are literally in your hands, and we are facing a showdown with a nuclear power and have you somebody inside the White House, somebody that the New York Daily News says is mentally unfit.”
He continued, “People close to him say he is mentally unfit, people close to him during the campaign told me he had early stages of dementia. Now, listen, you can get mad at me. When are we supposed to say this? After the first nuclear missile goes? Is that when it’s proper to bring this up in polite society? Tell me.”
