Ex-Obama Official: Get Rid Of Trump With A ‘Military Coup’

One former Democratic official is so upset that Donald Trump won the election, she is proposing some extreme ways to “get rid” of him.

According to Breitbart News, Rosa Brooks’ blog in Foreign Policy magazine lists four scenarios. The writer, who was a lawyer for the Defense Department and later a senior adviser in the State Department during the Obama administration, began by pointing out that the Democratic presidential nominee in 2020 could deny Trump a second four-year term. “But after such a catastrophic first week, four years seems like a long time to wait,” she wrote.

Impeachment, on the other hand, could happen sooner. However, Brooks conceded that “impeachments take time, months if not longer, even with an enthusiastic Congress; and when you have a lunatic controlling the nuclear codes, even a few months seems like a perilously long time to wait.”

The third option on the list is “mental instability,” which Brooks claimed could be applied to Trump. “His first week in office has made it all too clear: Yes, he is as crazy as everyone feared,” she alleged. The 25th Amendment to the Constitution calls for removing the president if he or she “is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

Brooks declared that if none of those strategies works, a “military coup” could be in order. “Remember those optimistic pre-inauguration fantasies?” she wrote. “You know, ‘once he’s president, I’m sure he’ll realize it doesn’t really make sense to withdraw from all those treaties’; ‘once he’s president, surely he’ll understand that he needs to stop tweeting out those random insults’; ‘once he’s president, he’ll have to put aside that ridiculous campaign braggadocio about building a wall along the Mexican border.’ And so on. Nope. In his first week in office, Trump has made it eminently clear that he meant every loopy, appalling word — and then some.”

Breitbart News reported that Brooks is a Schwartz senior fellow at the New America Foundation, which gets money from Democratic Party donor George Soros and his Open Society Foundations.
