U.S. Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) is the latest House Republican to sound the alarm about Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
In a resolution introduced this week aimed at removing her, Collins asserts that Pelosi “does not have the mental fitness” to hold the leadership position in Congress, as reported by Fox News.
“Push for her removal”
His proposal also asserts that she has wasted lawmakers’ time with frivolous and partisan investigations.
After pursuing a failed impeachment effort against President Donald Trump, the speaker has attracted backlash in recent weeks for suggesting that he might not be fit to hold office in the wake of a COVID-19 diagnosis and related treatment.
Collins hit back in kind with his Twitter announcement on Sunday.
“It’s clear that Nancy Pelosi does not have the mental fitness to serve as Speaker of the House of Representatives,” he wrote. “I’m introducing a resolution to push for her removal.”
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany linked to a bizarre moment during a recent television interview in a tweet turning Pelosi’s latest anti-Trump pursuit against her.
“She’s got a lot of problems”
“The only one who needs the 25th Amendment is Nancy Pelosi herself,” McEnany wrote. “Stop projecting, Nancy!”
Of course, the California Democrat has faced similar accusations and speculation in the past, including from the president.
“Pelosi is a sick woman,” Trump claimed during a meeting in May. “She’s got a lot of problems, a lot of mental problems.”
He also chimed in after Pelosi’s announcement of a measure aimed at gauging a president’s fitness to hold office: “Crazy Nancy Pelosi is looking at the 25th Amendment in order to replace Joe Biden with Kamala Harris. The Dems want that to happen fast because Sleepy Joe is out of it!!!”
Whether or not it is feasible to remove the speaker under the terms of the resolution presented this week, Pelosi’s far-left policies are going to be on the ballot throughout her district and across the country next month. It is at the ballot box that voters can have their say about which party takes control of Capitol Hill next year.
