We've never had a President like Trump in the past 240 years since America was founded. There have been good and bad presidents, and certainly a few corrupt presidents, but Trump combines too many bad traits to list, among them arrogance, dishonesty, greed, lack of curiosity, and hotheadedness.
He also suffers from diarrhea of the mouth and of his Twitter account - he cannot keep his fingers off the buttons of his phone long enough for his aides, family or anyone else to get him to temper his language. Anyone who offends him gets a CAPSLOCK rant on Twitter the next day.
Since the FBI investigation began to heat up a few weeks ago, Trump's behavior and tweets are increasingly bizarre and inappropriate. Whether this is just a symptom of fear, his chronic Narcissism, or the early warning signs of Alzheimers, is anyone's guess. However, some have begun to call for Congress to use the 25th Amendment to remove him from office because he seems unfit to serve.

Some are calling for a panel of doctors to evaluate Trump:
Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin is urging his colleagues to get behind a bill that could potentially oust President Donald Trump if he was mentally or physically unfit to lead, and the Maryland Democrat is citing the 25th Amendment of the Constitution as his legal backup.
. . . Raskin has proposed creating an 11-member commission made up of mostly physicians and psychiatrists -- more formally called the "Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity." The panel would carry out a medical examination and determine whether the President was physically or mentally able to do the job.
However some legal scholars feel it is an unlikely solution:
(Constitutional scholar Gloria) Browne-Marshall, a professor of constitutional law at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, told CNN Monday, "That area of medicine is already ambiguous to begin with, so I think it would be even more difficult to apply it to an unwilling patient."
She added that even if such a commission was established and even if it came to the conclusion that a president was mentally unstable, legally, all the president would have to do is "deny" the findings of the commission and those findings would be kicked back to Congress.
In that event, according to section four of the 25th Amendment, Congress would have to take a vote within 21 days "after receipt of the latter written declaration," and a "two-thirds vote of both Houses" is required to transfer power from a president to a vice-president
And since the Mueller investigation is moving at a glacial pace (considering Trump and company have been on the radar for 25 years) and the GOP-led Congress has no will to impeach a President from their own party, no matter how horrible, we are stuck with a Dysfunctional President, which rightly terrifies half of the country and most of the rest of the world.

Trump and senior WH aides colluding with the National Enquirer to blackmail journalists is a big deal. Congress should investigate.— David Corn (@DavidCornDC) June 30, 2017
