Law & Crime reports:
President Donald Trump was quite happy with what Harvard Law Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz had to say when he appeared on Tucker Carlson‘s show Thursday night.
Soon after Carlson’s show aired on Fox News, the president tweeted out this quote from Dershowitz that dealt with the allegation that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein considered getting Trump’s cabinet to use the 25th Amendment to remove him from office.
“Trying to use the 25th Amendment to try and circumvent the Election is a despicable act of unconstitutional power grabbing” Dershowitz said. Plenty of people on Twitter quickly noted the irony of claiming that using an amendment to the Constitution was somehow unconstitutional.
“Trying to use the 25th Amendment to try and circumvent the Election is a despicable act of unconstitutional power grabbing…which happens in third world countries. You have to obey the law. This is an attack on our system & Constitution.” Alan Dershowitz. @TuckerCarlson

The admendments are part of the constitution, 1st, 2nd and 25th alike. So the exercise of the 25th amendment is the opposite of unconstitutional.

The 25th Amendment is literally part of the Constitution.
