After failing to get President Trump out of office since 2016, Nancy Pelosi plans to use the nuclear option to remove him before the elections.

Pelosi says Congress will discuss using the 25th Amendment powers to remove Trump from office amid unfounded fears that a steroid treatment he received for Covid-19 turned him into a raving maniac.

In addition to experimental antibody drugs by Regeneron and an antiviral drug called remdesivir, Trump also received dexamethasone, a potent steroid that suppresses inflammation in the lungs.

The Democrats and their allies in the news media claim the steroid treatment caused Trump to become aggressive and affected his mental health.

Some side effects of dexamethasone include aggression, anxiety, irritability, mental depression, mood changes and trouble thinking, according to the Mayo Clinic.

But those side effects are rare. As a RN who has administered dexamethasone and Prednisone (as well as other steroids) to hundreds of patients - including children - since 1987, I personally have never witnessed those side effects in any of my patients.

The Democrats seem desperate to remove Trump from office despite national polls saying Biden has a double digit lead over Trump.

Their own internal polls tell a different story. For example, Trump's approval among Black men has jumped to 45% from just 8% in 2016. And Trump enjoys substantial support among the Hispanic community.

Nancy Pelosi is under fire for getting a blowout at a San Francisco hair salon that was shuttered amid the coronavirus.

The House Speaker is seen on leaked surveillance video having her hair done while not wearing a face mask or social distancing - actions she criticized President Trump for just hours after getting her hair done.

Pelosi's team issued a statement on Wednesday, blaming the salon owner for telling Pelosi the city said she could have one client at a time in the salon.

But salon owner Erica Kious disputed that explanation. She said she received a text message from one of the stylists who rents a booth at eSalon, asking her to open the shuttered salon because he had Nancy Pelosi coming in on Sunday.

"I'll be there at 2:45 tomorrow," the stylist texted. "Pelosi assistant just message me to do her hair."

Kious said, "I was like, are you kidding me right now? Do I let this happen? What do I do?"

Overreaching coronavirus restrictions prohibits salons from opening for business in San Francisco.

After seeing Pelosi on surveillance video inside her salon the next day, Kious shared the surveillance footage with Fox News.

"It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and get her stuff done while no one else can go in, and I can't work," Kious told Fox.

"We have been shut down for so long, not just me, but most of the small businesses and I just can't – it’s a feeling – a feeling of being deflated, helpless and honestly beaten down," she continued. "I have been fighting for six months for a business that took me 12 years to build to reopen."

The news spread like wildfire under the viral hashtag #Pelosimustgo.

President Trump tweeted: "The Beauty Parlor owner must really dislike Crazy Nancy Pelosi. Turning her in, on tape, is a really big deal. She probably treats him like she treats everyone else...And she strongly supported a Kennedy who just lost in, of all places, Massachusetts!"

Voters expressed their frustration with the Democratic Party for shuttering small businesses and ruining the economy just so they can return to power in November.

"The only things that 'matter' to Democrats is money and power," said one frustrated social media user.

@CongressmanHice wrote: There's one set of rules for the liberal elite, and another for the rest of us. Brazen hypocrisy. Double standards. #PelosiMustGo."

@w_terrence tweeted: "Nancy Pelosi think she's more important and better than the American people. She can go to Salons but other people have to stay home and not go to work or church. Raise your hand if you are ready for Pelosi to go!"

Others expressed similar outrage. Twitter marked all of their tweets as "Not helpful."

Nancy Pelosi added her voice to the chorus of Democrats who express concern about Joe Biden debating President Donald Trump next month.

Former Vice President Biden, the 77-year-old Democratic nominee, and Trump, 74, will meet for their first presidential debate on Sept. 29.

Democrats are extremely concerned after President Trump demanded Biden take a drug test before they face off.

Speaker of the House Pelosi is desperately trying to cancel the debates altogether.

"I don't think that there should be any debates," Pelosi said on Thursday.

"I wouldn't legitimize a conversation with [Trump] - nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States," she added.

Pelosi said Trump was "disgraceful" when he "stalked" Hillary Clinton all over the stage during the 2016 debate, and that he will probably "act in a way that is beneath the dignity of the presidency."

Pelosi fears Trump will dominate Biden and make him look weak in front of 300 million Americans.

"I think he will also belittle what the debates are supposed to be about," she said. "And they're not to be about skulduggery on the part of somebody who has no respect for the office he holds, much less the democratic process. I don't think that he should dignify that conversation with Donald Trump."

Pelosi suggested eliminating the debates in favor of each candidate holding separate "conversations" with voters, saying: "Let that be a conversation with the American people, not an exercise in skulduggery."

Democrats around the country are pressuring the Biden campaign to call off all debates with Trump due to the coronavirus pandemic. They don’t think Biden has the stamina to go toe-to-toe with Trump for an hour and a half.

Former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart warned Biden, "whatever you do, don't debate Trump."

Biden has said he will campaign from his basement until November amid the coronavirus pandemic -- leaving his running mate, Kamala Harris, to do his campaigning for him.

President Trump says the 2nd round of economic impact payments may be "way higher" than the $1,200 most Americans received earlier this year.

Phase 4 of the comprehensive Coronavirus relief bill will not be voted on by tonight's deadline (July 31). The White House and Republicans in the Senate are working on a smaller bill than the one proposed by House Democrats.

The Republican's economic stimulus bill would extend the federal unemployment benefits - but at a lower amount: $200 per week in addition to state benefits. The bill would also provide protection for renters who face evictions.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and Steven Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasury, met with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday to offer 4 proposals.

One proposal would extend the $600 federal benefits for one week to give more time for negotiations. But Pelosi and Schumer rejected the proposals.

On Friday, Trump said, "The Democrats do not care about the people of our country."

But Pelosi said Trump and the Republicans don't care about the American people. "They resent America's working families."

Republicans say the extra $600 benefit is a "disincentive" for Americans to go back to work because some people are making more money on unemployment than they would if they were working.

House Democrats sparked fury and indignation on Black Twitter yesterday by wearing tribal kente cloths while taking a knee to show solidarity for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats took a knee for exactly 8 minutes and 46 seconds in tribute to George Floyd, the 46-year-old Black man who died in Minneapolis police custody.

It was meant to be a show of support for racial equality after the House introduced a bill to defund police and put an end to police brutality.

But the gesture backfired badly, as Black Twitter protested the Democrats's condescending "publicity stunt."

"This is fukkin embarrassing as a country," wrote user Oldschooler All Star on TheColi.com.

"Do these people really think we are so stupid that they'll earn our respect by wearing kente clothes, kneeling and putting black squares on Instagram. This insults our intelligence to say the least. Black people in this country need action from politicians not pandering. I dont want to hear no more invitations to cookouts unless that person has done something tangible for us.[sic]"

"Excuse me, Democrats," tweeted author Obianuju Ekeocha.

"Don't treat Africans like we're children. These fabrics and these colorful things that we have within our culture and tradition, they all mean something to us. I know you look at us and you say, 'Oh, Africans are so cute in all of your colorful dresses.' Well, some of those dresses and patterns and colors and fabrics actually do mean something to us."

Ekeocha went on to ask why Democrats were using the kente cloth for their "own show of non-racism."

The White House has revealed there is no plan in place for succession of power should both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence contract the coronavirus and die.

If the worst happens, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo could possibly be sworn in as acting president. The Supreme Court would take up the legalities of succession.

Constitutional experts say Pelosi can't be sworn in as president because she doesn't fit the definition of "officer" as required in the Constitution.

The Constitution defines an officer as part of the executive branch. Pelosi is part of the legislative branch.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told London's DailyMail.com: "That's not even something we're addressing," when asked what is the plan if both the president or vice president are incapacitated by the virus.

McEnany assured DailyMail.com: "We're keeping the president healthy. We're keeping the vice president healthy and you know they're healthy at this moment and they'll continue to be."

She added: "I think that's something all reporters should be celebrating and the American people as well."

Supporters lined the road as President Trump arrived to tour medical equipment distributor Owens & Minor in Allentown, Pennsylvania on Thursday.

Trump did not wear a face mask. Many of his supporters were also bare-faced. All factory workers wore face masks and matching neon t-shirts.

The Democrats have a problem on their hands. Their only candidate, Joe Biden, is forced to campaign from his basement during the coronavirus pandemic.

That leaves the Democrats with only one option: mailing ballots to every registered voter in the country -- and hope they mail them back.

The House Democrats' latest coronavirus stimulus package contains billions of dollars to allow local officials in blue states to mail out voter ballots to every registered voter and to legalize the process known as ballot harvesting.

Election officials will be counting over 100 million ballots long after the November election is over.

28.4 million mail-in ballots went missing during the 2012 elections, and the Trump administration fears more shenanigans involving mail-in ballots in November.

President Trump accused Nancy Pelosi of attempting to steal the election for 77-year-old Biden, who reportedly suffers from senile dementia.

The new stimulus package bans states from requiring an ID or social security number from a registered voter requesting an absentee ballot.

States would also be banned from requiring witness signatures on absentee ballots.

A House vote on the new bill is expected on Friday. But Senate Republicans say they will not approve the package because they are in no rush to add more trillions to the federal budget deficit.

Nancy Pelosi announced a new $3 trillion stimulus package on Tuesday that contains billions in tax cuts and other cash freebies for the wealthy.

The bill also includes billions for "mandatory" vaccines and mail-in ballots to vote from home in November.

More than 30 million Americans have been let go from their jobs amid the coronavirus shutdown. The stimulus bill will provide up to $6,000 in cash direct to families and a second round of $1,200 checks to individuals -- some of whom are still awaiting the first round of checks.

But, as usual, the wealthy will profit from the Democrats' new HEROES Act.

The House Speaker is accused of "sneaking" tax cuts for the rich into the proposed bill, as well as allowing high-income earners to pawn off part of their state and local tax burden onto lower income workers.

The package includes billions for "mandatory" Covid-19 vaccines and $3.6 billion will go toward helping election officials prepare to count the 200+ million mail-in ballots the Democrats hope to send out.

Additionally, the bill includes a 15% increase for food stamps for illegal immigrants, $200 billion in "hazardous pay" for essential workers, and $175 billion in housing assistance for illegal immigrants and low-income wage earners.

Pelosi responded to criticism from lawmakers who say the new stimulus bill is stuffed with pork for the rich.

"To those who would suggest a pause, I would say the hunger doesn't take a pause, the rent doesn't take a pause," Pelosi said on Monday.

A House vote is expected on Friday. But Senate Republicans say they will not approve the package because they are in no rush to add more trillions to the federal budget deficit.

Nancy Pelosi unveiled a new $3 trillion aid package with massive new spending for city, state and tribal governments impacted by the coronavirus shutdowns.

The new round of stimulus aid called the Heroes Act will include up to $6,000 cash direct to families and $200 billion in "hazard pay" for essential front line workers like medics, police and firefighters.

The package will offer another round of $1,200 checks to individuals who qualify. But 20 million Americans say they still have not received their checks from the IRS since checks went out in April.

The House Speaker announced the new spending bill on Tuesday after meeting with House Democrats. "We must put more money in the pockets of the American people," she said Tuesday afternoon.

Majority Leader Steyn Hoyer said Congress needs to act to approve the new aid package. "This is an unprecedented time in our history," he said.

The House is expected to vote on the new stimulus package on Friday.

But Senate Republicans are not planning to vote on any new stimulus bills until June, after a Memorial Day recess.

Millions of Americans who were counting on receiving coronavirus relief checks from the federal government next month are out of luck.

The Democrats delayed President Trump's coronavirus economic stimulus bill in a Senate vote on Sunday night.

The vote came while at least five Republican senators were in self-quarantine after coming in contact with infected colleagues such as Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.

The bill includes relief checks that range from $1,200 to $4,500 to help individuals and small business owners who are financially impacted by the virus.

Corporations and individuals earning over $99,000 in 2018 are not eligible to receive help from the government.

Many Democrats complained that the relief bill did not go far enough to provide healthcare and unemployment aid for Americans.

The Democrats also pushed for food security aid, small business loans and said that three months of unemployment insurance offered was insufficient.

After the vote failed, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ripped into the Democrats, accusing them of backing out of a partisan agreement after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer intervened.

McConnell claimed Pelosi, who is a multimillionaire, took "a week off" and "poured cold water on the whole process."

He said the Senate will re-vote on the massive $1 trillion stimulus bill on Monday afternoon.
