The only thing keeping them from invoking the 25th amendment is Kamala Harris?

Sen. Rick Scott: Time for Biden’s Cabinet to ‘Invoke 25th Amendment’

Scott called on President Joe Biden’s cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment following revelations about Biden’s deteriorating mental state.

Republican Sen. Rick Scott (FL) called on President Joe Biden’s cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment on Thursday, following revelations from Special Counsel Robert Hur’s report about Biden’s deteriorating mental state.

“This report labels Biden as a ‘well meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.’ That does not describe someone who should be the Commander in Chief of our armed forces and the defender of American freedoms,” Scott said in a post to X.

“It’s time for his cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment,” he added.

Hur decided not to prosecute Biden for mishandling classified documents, citing the president’s “significantly limited” memory as playing a role in his decision. Damning details in Hur’s report include Biden not remembering “even within several years, when his son Beau died” as well as struggling to remember his time as vice president.

Biden Struggles to Respond to Reporter’s Question at White House Presser

President Biden struggled to get words out while answering a question from a reporter during a White House press conference where Biden was attempting to promote the open borders bill being considered in the U.S. Senate.

Invoking the 25th Amendment would remove Biden as president and replace him with Vice President Kamala Harris. The 25th Amendment was notably proposed by Congress and ratified by the states after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to provide a procedure for replacing a president or vice president in the event of incapacitation, resignation, removal, or death.

The 25th Amendment was used for the first time in 1973, when President Richard Nixon nominated Gerald R. Ford (a congressman at the time) to fill the vacancy left by Vice President Spiro Agnew’s resignation. Less than a year later, the 25th amendment was used again when Nixon resigned and Ford took his place as president. Ford then nominated Nelson Rockefeller to fill the role of vice president.


The 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

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.

Joe Biden’s constant verbal blunders show he’s not fit to lead the country

Hur’s observation that Biden would likely present himself to a jury as “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” as a defense against accountability is deeply disturbing.

Joe Biden’s constant verbal blunders show he’s not fit to lead the country

Special counsel Robert Hur released a shocking report Thursday on President Biden’s classified-documents case disclosing the president.

Special counsel Robert Hur released a shocking report Thursday on President Biden’s classified-documents case disclosing the president, in the office’s interviews with him, didn’t remember when his son Beau died.

Though the White House continues to maintain Biden is mentally fit for office, Hur reported that “he did not remember when he was Vice President.”

He was also confused over the debate on leaving Afghanistan.

Hur’s observation that Biden would likely present himself to a jury as “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” as a defense against accountability is deeply disturbing.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t agree with most of the American public that Joe Biden at age 81 is too old to run for president. 

I think “we the people” need to consider fitness and mental acuity as opposed to linear age.

And when it comes to fitness, there are very serious questions here.

I have never examined the president, and I am well aware of the limitations of diagnosis or analysis via video clip.

At the same time, you don’t have to be a neurologist or even a physician to notice his problems with gait, memory and orientation, as well as apparent changes in mood.

These can all be signs of faltering cognition, which is directly tied to executive function, flexibility of thinking, problem solving and the ability to lead.

Do you the American public think we need to see an MRI and a cognitive exam?

Do you think Biden’s unforced errors of orientation are simple gaffes or a sign of something worse?

Keep in mind that when it comes to memory, short-term memory tends to leave us first, followed by longer-term memory — which is why I am so concerned by the recent mistakes.

Forgetting Hamas is the terrorist group that attacked Israel and twice saying he spoke with former German Chancellor Helmut Kohl at a United Kingdom summit in 2021 — Kohl died in 2017 — rather than former Chancellor Angela Merkel, who attended.

In Las Vegas Sunday, relating an encounter with the French president in 2021, Biden referred to François Mitterrand, who died in 1996. 

Perhaps most concerning of all are Biden’s recent assertions that his son Beau died in Iraq when everyone in the country knows he died of a brain tumor, and Biden started his Cancer Moonshot program in his memory.

To prove to myself Biden’s errors aren’t automatic for his age, I spoke with my father, age 100, who I admit is a super-ager and despite multiple medical problems continues to be quite sharp.

His answers magnified the difference between age and fitness.

“Who is the terrorist group who attacked Israel?”

“Hamas,” my father replied without hesitation.

“Who is François Mitterrand?”

“He was president of France, several years ago.”

“Who was Helmut Kohl?”

“I refuse to remember any German leader after World War II, and I still won’t buy a German razor.”

And finally, “What does it mean to you if an elderly person seems to forget how his son died?”

“I remember when my mother called me by her brother’s name in her latter stages of dementia. It was awful.”

“What do you think of President Biden blaming former President Trump for our border problems, when the number of migrant encounters is five times greater now and still increasing (1 million since October 2023).”

“He is still a crafty politician, but this is also childish,” my father said wisely.

My father is proud of the letter he received from President Biden to mark his 100th birthday, and our president is still not where my grandmother was in her later days.

We must always feel compassion for someone who is raging “against the dying of the light,” to quote Dylan Thomas’ brilliant poem.

But America’s voters must judge Biden as a leader, not as someone’s struggling grandparent.
