The late Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-IN) was invited by President Joe Biden to participate in a live presentation on hunger and nutrition on Wednesday. After Walorski’s death in an automobile accident this month, Biden contacted her family to express his sorrow.
The embarrassing blunder was the most recent indication that Biden might not be mentally fit to serve as president, despite the White House’s efforts to downplay it as merely a sign that Walorski was “top of mind” and characterize it as the kind of gaffe that anybody could make.
However, there is no discussion of utilizing the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution to remove Biden from office. In accordance with the Constitution, the Vice President and the Cabinet must notify the leaders of Congress in writing if the President is unable to carry out his responsibilities. The 25th Amendment was frequently brought up in the media while President Donald Trump was in office. There were even rumors that Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, attempted to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump and install Vice President Mike Pence.
The media room is now, however, silent. Three reasons are listed. Perhaps the first is that Biden’s mistakes are nothing new. For instance, the then-Sen. Biden instructed a wheelchair-bound state legislator in MO to get up back when he was younger and more intelligent than he is now. The second reason is that Kamala Harris, the vice president, may not be much better; on Thursday, while visiting the Demilitarized Zone, she made a mistake and lauded the “strong alliance” between the United States and the “Republic of North Korea.”
The third and most crucial cause, however, is blatant political partisanship. Trump was despised by the media, the Democratic Party, and significant portions of the executive branch. Therefore, any pretext, like an insulting tweet or a sluggish descent of a ramp, was used as justification to urge that the Council remove Trump. It may have happened, but Mike Pence, who would eventually decide not to contest the Electoral College vote, was not going to support a constitutional coup.
