Experts Believe the Coronavirus 

Could Be Defeated with the 

Twenty-fifth Amendment

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a possible breakthrough that Americans have been 

hoping for, experts believe that the coronavirus could be defeated by the Twenty-fifth 

Amendment to the United States Constitution.

The experts, from the fields of science, public health, government, and law, were uniformly 

enthusiastic in their conviction that the Twenty-fifth Amendment is the single most powerful 

weapon that the nation currently has to vanquish the coronavirus.

"Researchers are hard at work developing therapeutics and vaccines, but it will be some 

time before those solutions are viable," Davis Logsdon, a doctor and professor at the University of Minnesota, said. "The Twenty-fifth Amendment is ready to go right now."

Although much about the coronavirus remains unknown, Logsdon said, "We've learned a 

lot about some of the conditions that enable it to thrive, like incompetence, laziness, and ignorance. The Twenty-fifth Amendment eradicates all three of those conditions. It's like constitutional Lysol."

Logsdon acknowledged that using the Twenty-fifth Amendment has raised some concerns, 

since it has never been used before on a human, but added, "I can think of no better human to use it on."


Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose.
