If we invoke the 25th. Amendment, Mike Pence instantly becomes President. If someone employs the more Shakespearean solution - same result. With Trump, it all came down to "competence." He had none. But, Mike Pence does. He is a thousand times more dangerous than Trump. He wants a one-party theocracy.
When it comes to being tone deaf and tone blind and tone dumb, the Repub's have cornered the market in 2012.
