Lady Gaga Explains Why Trump Needs to Be Impeached, Not Ousted with 25th Amendment

Lady Gaga is explaining why ousting Donald Trump from office using the 25th amendment is not the appropriate form of action right now.

The 34-year-old entertainer took to Twitter on Thursday night (January 7) to tell fans that impeachment is the right way to go because it could prevent Trump from ever running for office again.

“I hope we focus to impeach Trump so Congress has the constitutional authority to possibly disqualify him from future election — the #25thAmendment doesn’t disqualify him. He incited domestic terror—how much more violence needs to happen? This is terrorism,” Gaga tweeted.

If a president is impeached and removed from office, he or she can also be disqualified from holding any office again. While it would require two-thirds of the Senate to remove Trump from office, only a majority vote needs to happen to disqualify him from running again.

Gaga also took to Twitter on Thursday to applaud the efforts of Black women in Georgia, like Stacey Abrams, who helped secure the Democratic wins in the runoff election.

“Like all Americans, I am outraged by the violence, lawlessness and mayhem. I immediately deployed the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders…the demonstrators who infiltrated the Capitol have defiled the seat of American democracy. To those who engaged in the acts of violence and destruction, you do not represent our country. And to those who broke the law, you will pay,” he started the speech.

“We must get on with the business of America. My campaign vigorously pursued every legal avenue to contest the election results. My only goal was to ensure the integrity of the vote. In so doing, I was fighting to defend American democracy. I continue to strongly believe that we must reform our election laws to verify the identity and eligibility of all voters and to ensure faith and confidence in all future elections,” he continued to explain.

“Now, Congress has certified the results. A new administration will be inaugurated on January 20. My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing and reconciliation. 2020 has been a challenging time for our people,” he said.

“We must revitalize the sacred bonds of love and loyalty that bind us together as one national family. To the citizens of our country, serving as your President has been the honor of my lifetime. And to all of my wonderful supporters, I know you are disappointed, but I also want you to know that our incredible journey is only just beginning.”

Earlier in the day, it was announced that he was indefinitely banned from these social media platforms.

“We prioritized lives over property, leading people to safety. Not one Member of Congress or their staff was injured. Our officers did their jobs. Our leadership did not. Our Law Enforcement partners that assisted us were remarkable,” he said in the statement.

Sund previously called the officers actions “heroic” and denounced the chaos as “criminal riotous behavior.”
