And before you think this is fanatical fringe and thus doesn't matter...
Lindsey Graham letter to the AG about Invoking the 25th Amendment as a coup.
Think about that... A "respected and senior" Senator in a letter to the AG regarding discussion within the DoJ about considering if there is enough support for invoking the 25th Amendment describes it as a "coup". This is the outrage of Republicans. Not the fact that things are so bad with this President that it happened.
If this was Obama ever rightwing pundit would be claiming it proof that the President isn't fit to serve if the DoJ is talking about whether there is support for this. They sure as shit wouldn't call it a coup.
“I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or my grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness. The dumbing down of America is most evident in the slow decay of substantative content in the enormously influential media, the 30-second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance.” -Carl Sagan 1995
