Why The 25th Amendment Can’t Touch Trump

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz explained to Fox News that the 25th Amendment wasn’t created to “medicalize political differences” or work as “a substitute for impeachment.”


Dershowitz stated, “[Y]ou really have to read the 25th Amendment and understand that it was never intended to medicalize political differences. Even President Obama, yesterday, used the term ‘paranoia.’ It’s very dangerous when we try to psychiatricize political differences. That’s not what the 25th Amendment was about. It was about a president who was shot or a president who was having a psychotic break and didn’t know the difference between right and wrong. It was not intended as a substitute for impeachment. And we ought to get off that as soon as possible.”
