After President Donald Trump spent much of Saint Patrick's Day rage tweeting, George Conway, the spouse to one of Trump's closest advisors, is warning that the president may be suffering from two diagnosable psychological conditions as outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.

A new resolution introduced in the House of Representatives urges Vice President Mike Pence and the Cabinet to make Donald Trump submit to a physical and mental health exam over concerns that he is unfit to perform his duties as President. Representative Zoe Lofgren, a Democrat from California writes, “President Donald J. Trump has exhibited an alarming pattern of behavior and speech causing concern that a mental disorder may have rendered him unfit and unable to fulfill his constitutional duties…”

Lofgren’s resolution urges the Vice President and the President’s Cabinet to invoke Section 4 of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This is a rarely used amendment whose necessity became clear as far back as 1841 when Vice President John Tyler took over as Acting President for President William Harrison, who died of pneumonia just 31 days into office. As there was no legal procedure in place for how to transfer power in such an instance, and some argued that Tyler was not authentically President, Congress had some tough considerations, says Remi Alli, J.D., an expert in health law. “That’s when they created the hierarchy of who takes over if a president dies in office,” she tells Second Nexus. Among other things, the 25th Amendment allows the vice president and a majority of cabinet members to jointly remove the president from office and replace him with the vice president.
