Biden’s Days In Office Numbered Thanks To New Effort

President-elect Joe Biden’s behavior at the end of a press conference this weekend once again raised questions about his cognitive functions.
After a briefing in which he announced new members of his science team, Biden turned to leave but appeared to be confused about his next steps, as seen in a video shared on Saturday. The Democrat’s actions, and the look of confusion, raised concerns on social media and prompted comments about the 25th Amendment from Donald Trump Jr.

“We’re going to lead with science and truth,” Biden said during a speech in Delaware on Saturday as he introduced his new appointees. “We believe in both.”

At the end of the event, the Democrat noted that he had gone past the allotted time and turned to leave. A video posted by podcast host Josh Lekach showed Biden reaching for a notebook on a nearby table, then looking around a bit confused before walking off the platform.

Following the January 6 violence that erupted at the U.S. Capitol Building, Democrats crusaded to have President Donald Trump removed from office before the end of his term, calling on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment and find that “the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

Although Pence declined to make the move, Democrats went on to vote to impeach Trump a second time last week for allegedly inciting a riot, and talk of using the 25th Amendment to remove him because of his comments and actions continued.

In a speech he delivered at Alamo, Texas last week, the president asserted that the 25th Amendment is of “zero risk” to him, but would “come back to haunt Joe Biden.”

“As the expression goes, be careful what you wish for,” he said.

The video of Biden from the weekend sparked much commentary on Twitter where many expressed the same view as the president’s son on the double standards.

There was another debate about the accuracy of the video, with some claiming that it was edited to make the former vice president look bad. Full video showed that there were questions being asked and Biden was listening as he made his move to exit.

But Lakach countered the criticisms, saying that Biden’s “facial expressions say it all.”

He also called out Twitter for labeling the clip “manipulated video.”

Other Twitter users jumped in to drive home the point.
