To the contrary: That the Deputy AG, a former distinguished U.S. Attorney and lifelong Republican, considered invoking 25th amendment to remove Trump confirms that the President of the U.S. is dangerously unhinged.

Under any other administration, this would be a months long scandal, with congressional hearings, resignations, and a coordinated effort to locate the kids. The fact that the disappearance of children barely cracks the news cycle is beyond comprehension. https://t.co/oKGuruKQ1c
