There’s a whole lot packed into a single Trump tweet from October 2014

First, there is an immutable law that posits that for whatever President Donald Trump says or does, there is always a Trump tweet either contradicting his stance or calling someone an idiot for doing whatever he’s doing.

Second, on Wednesday morning, NBC News reported that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Trump a “moron” and threatened to resign, which he later had to go in front of the media and quasi-repute.

Third, there is the growing constituency of people who believe that Congress or Trump’s cabinet should invoke the 25th Amendment, the process prescribed in the United States Constitution to remove an unfit president.

Here is a tweet the president posted on Oct. 22, 2014.

An interesting cartoon that is (re)circulating, indeed.
