Waiting for Jack Bauer

Democratic Bill Lays the Groundwork to Remove Trump From OfficeDemocratic Bill Lays the Groundwork to Remove Trump From Office

Section 4 of the 25th Amendment, which allows the vice president to remove the president if he or she has the consent of the majority of the Cabinet or "such other body as Congress," if they believe he cannot "discharge the powers and duties of the office."
Over a year later, David Palmer is now the President. He is alerted to the threat of a nuclear bomb detonating in the U.S. He also is informed that Bauer, now an inactive agent, has contacts with people who could lead them to the bomb. Jack ignored calls from CTU, but responded to the call from President Palmer.

Jack became an active agent again, eventually finding the bomb and detonating it in a remote area. Palmer orders attacks on the three nations responsible, as revealed by an audio known as the Cyprus Recording. Palmer then reverses course, stating that he believes the recordings to be fake, as advised by Jack, but Mike Novick, his Chief of Staff, and the Vice President, Jim Prescott deem this sudden reluctance to attack as an incapability to hold the office. Earlier in the day however, Sherry warned him that there were people in his administration planning to overthrow his presidency. Prescott gathers the Cabinet members, and by one vote, David Palmer is removed from office under the provisions of the 25th Amendment. He sits in a room as a prisoner for the rest of the day, until Jack provides CTU with the evidence that the Cyprus Recording is a forgery, and the attacks are called off by Prescott.

Palmer is reinstated as President, and although Prescott and the Cabinet members who voted against Palmer offer to resign, he does not accept their resignations. Palmer does, however, immediately relieve Mike Novick of his post as Chief of Staff. Palmer then goes out to make a statement to the press, deeming that the threat is over. He shakes hands with many of the onlookers, one of whom happens to be Mandy, a woman hired in Day 1 to assassinate Palmer. She slips a deadly virus into his hand, and he collapses to the ground, panting.[3]

Rep. Jamie Raskin (a male at birth) is another Maryland douchbag Donk; young enough to never have  known other than the corrupt Maryland political machine that prevails.  He will certainly  have this stupid gambit shoved back up the ass that shat it.  Still, he  has punched his ticket in the Dem caucus, which is all he cares about to begin with.

Anyway, every article I've read about this contains the "little known 25th Amendment" phrase.  I dun't thing so Lucy.  Folks who watched the wildly popular series "24" will likely (as did I) remember when President David Palmer fell victim to just this.  They will also remember that the pols involved were very bad people who they wanted Jack Bauer to kill..  I think Rep. Jamie Raskin fits right in.

They just don't get it. No one who voted for him gives a rat's ass about his tweeting. They voted for him because they hated the democrat nominee and the people surrounding her. This will just drive them closer to him. He's going to win the next election in a landslide.

"Rep. Jamie Raskin (a male at birth)...."

I hadn't thought about it before now, but - again, thanks to the $@#&ing libtards - we need another identifier: what was this person's sex at birth. The old identifiers of Democrat/Republican, Southerner/Yankee, etc., while useful and worth continuing, now need the addition of "sex at birth."

Which, after thinking about it some more, when applicable it may eliminate the need for any other identifiers.
