(TotalConservative.com) – Following another stumble and fall by President Joe Biden, some are calling for invoking the 25th Amendment and raising questions about Biden’s ability to finish his term, let alone serve a second one.
After speaking at a graduation ceremony for the Air Force Academy in Colorado, Biden turned away from the podium, tripped, and fell hard onto his knees. He was then helped up by an Air Force officer and the Secret Service.
The fall once again raises questions about Biden’s ability to serve in office, with many expressing their concerns on social media. Whether or not the 80-year-old Biden is in good enough health physically and mentally has been a concern even before he won the 2020 election.
Aside from physical fitness, mental aptitude is another concern that current GOP presidential candidates former President Donald Trump and Nikki Haley have brought up multiple times already, and other Republicans have been calling for cognitive ability tests as a requirement for serving in office.
Recently announced GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis, the governor of Florida, has also questioned Biden’s ability to lead, and during his first rally in Iowa since announcing his campaign, he vowed to send Biden back into the basement “permanently.”
After Biden’s recent fall, some took to Twitter to express that they believe the 25th Amendment should be invoked. Ratified after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the amendment established procedures to replace the president or vice president in the event of their death, incapacitation, resignation, or removal from office.
This is only the latest incident in a series of falls by the president throughout his term. Biden already had two occasions where he fall on the steps of Air Force One, as well as an incident falling while riding a bike that became a viral joke among conservatives.
