Remember when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced a proposed bill last October that pushed to use the 25th Amendment to remove a president if they are unfit for office? The bill, introduced by Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), died in the previous Congress and was called the “Commission on Presidential Capacity to Discharge the Power and Duties of the Office Act.”
Well, after the bungling of the situation that is unfolding in Afghanistan, Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) floated the idea on Monday of using the “provisions of the 25th Amendment” against President Joe Biden.
“After the disastrous events in Afghanistan, we must confront a serious question: Is Joe Biden capable of discharging the duties of his office or has time come to exercise the provisions of the 25th Amendment?” Scott postulated in a tweet.

The 25th Amendment, as reported by Cornell Law School’s Legal Information Institute (LII), says the law “provides the procedures for replacing the president or vice president in the event of death, removal, resignation, or incapacitation.”
Conservatives always hated when the left brought up removing former President Donald Trump from office because they thought he was mentally unfit to serve. But, Biden’s far-worse-than-Saigon Afghanistan debacle — along with his regime’s seemingly mishandled inflation, border and pandemic crises — looks to be making people contemplate whether he’s actually fit for office as well.
