POTUS is insane & about to take us to war: invoke Amend XXV!

The current occupant of the Oval Office has left governmental positions unfilled. This has implications for any attempt to declare dt unable to perform the duties of office.
Amendment XXV, sec 4 of the Constitution is titled “Determination of presidential inability” and addresses removal of office of the President:
“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.
“Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days 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. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.”
We could veer into a nuclear war and be dead within two hours. The individual who currently occupies the Oval Office is not competent to hold that office. His insanity - a term to be applied here clinically - has us on the brink of mass deaths.
The provisions of Amendment XXV should be invoked. One more things to ponder: his evangelical base could be very hopeful for this event. That would mean we have reached Armageddon and the second coming of the “Prince of Peace.”
