Are comedians, or reporters, really “important people”?

Are comedians, or reporters, really “important people”?

Ah, Hollywood. The land of make-believe and where the Haves look down from their vaunted palaces built in the hills on the figurative, if not literal, unwashed masses. A town where making your living wearing greasepaint and courting the paparazzi apparently convinces you that you are a political genius, or at least the moral voice of the country. How that shine has waned of late. Harvey Weinstein, and now his younger brother, Bob, have become the poster bad boys for sexual harassment. Less than six months earlier, Kathy Griffin “beheaded” Donald Trump in a photo shoot that backfired on her. Not that it should have surprised anyone after she offered to do a “beat down” on Barron Trump the previous year. Jimmy Kimmel has basically said he doesn’t care if Republicans don’t watch his show. Chelsea Handler has tweeted that our generals should basically overthrow the government and Joy Behar says we shouldn’t criticize comedians because they’re “important” people. Double-standard much?

Handler’s 25th Amendment Tweet

Now, I doubt most rational people take Handler seriously. Like so many comedians, she takes herself seriously enough. However, for the sake of argument, let’s see what she’s proposing. The 25th Amendment deals with several scenarios, ranging from what happens if there is no longer a vice-president to what happens if the president dies while in office, resigns or is removed from office. The provision Chandler appears to be referencing is Section 4:

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President. . . .
