Response to a reader comment: 

Removal of a president for illness is covered under the 25th Amendment.

It requires the vice president and eight Cabinet officers to declare in writing that the president is unfit. The vice president then becomes the “acting” president immediately.

The deposed president can then appeal to the Congress where a two-thirds majority of both houses is required to keep the vice president in charge.

It is easy to see why this amendment is unlikely ever to be of any use, even when it is so clear that the president is unbalanced. Virtually the entire American government would have to formally agree.
