McEnany Blasts Pelosi: Maybe 25th Amendment Should Be Considered for Her
White House press secretary slams Pelosi's push to remove Trump
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany torched House Speaker Nancy Pelosi following her push to remove President Donald Trump from office before the election using the 25th Amendment.
McEnany said Pelosi was "projecting" when it came to talking of removing President Trump due to his health.
Pelosi announced legislation to create a commission allowing congress to remove the president from office, using the 25th Amendment.
“Tomorrow, by the way, tomorrow — come here tomorrow. We’re going to be talking about the 25th Amendment,” Pelosi said during her press briefing.
Democrats have long floated the idea of removing Trump using the 25th Amendment.
The news comes a day after Pelosi accused President Trump of being "in an altered state" following his coronavirus diagnosis.
“That’s an absurd proposition from Nancy Pelosi," McEnany said.
"The only one who needs to be looking at the 25th amendment is Nancy Pelosi herself,” she added.
McEnany highlighted a “bizarre” ABC interview where Pelosi smiled and said, “Good morning, Sunday morning” in the middle of speaking about impeaching Trump because of his Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett.
“So maybe she’s projecting here because the 25th amendment, no reason for it to be considered with the president of the United States but maybe for Nancy Pelosi herself,” McEnany said.
Trump responded on Twitter:
"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!!!"

Trump returned to the Oval Office Wednesday after being admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center last Friday.
Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, said the president could be able to campaign or attend events as early as Saturday.
“He won’t be out there if he can transmit the virus,” McEnany assured the co-hosts.
She also blasted the Commission on Presidential Debates, calling it a “commission to reelect Joe Biden."
“The president has no interest in a virtual debate,” McEnany concluded.
“It’s not a fair format.”
CPD Chairman Frank Fahrenkopf said the nonpartisan group’s decision would not be changed, Associated Press reported.
Fahrenkopf argued that the group wanted to ‘protect the health and safety of all involved,’ adding the decision was based on its health partner, the Cleveland Clinic.
