DeSantis: Biden Should Be Removed from Office with 25th Amendment If ‘Too Senile’ to Stand Trial

Florida’s GOP Governor Ron DeSantis has called for “senile” Democrat President Joe Biden to be removed from office using the 25th Amendment.

Gov. DeSantis was responding to last week’s explosive report on Special Counsel Robert Hur’s investigation into Biden’s mishandling of classified documents.

Hur noted in the report that Biden struggled to answer basic questions during interviews because of his “poor memory.”

He revealed that the president could even remember the year that his son, Beau Biden, died.

The special counsel concluded that charging Biden would be fruitless because a jury would not convict a confused old man.

Hur’s report stated that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen” but that prosecutors “conclude that no criminal charges are warranted.”

He added that they “also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury…as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.”

During an interview with Mark Levin after Hur’s report was released, DeSantis argued that Biden should be removed from office if he’s “too senile” to stand trial.

The governor warned that Biden should not be viewed as competent enough to have the U.S.’s nuclear codes, and the 25th Amendment should be used to remove Biden from office if he really is not mentally capable.

“This was willful retention of documents over many decades, this was like a pattern and practice when he was a U.S. senator, when he was vice president, when he got out of office,” DeSantis said.

“And I think back to the Hillary Clinton case which you and I both thought merited prosecution at the time.

“But Hillary, she set up that server, it wasn’t about classified, she just didn’t want her communications to be subjected to FOIA because of whatever she was doing, Clinton Foundation, who knows.

“So she was willing to risk exposure of classified by having this private server.”

“Biden, I think was even more willful because he was doing this for a pattern of practice,” he continued.

He noted that the special counsel “clearly had the goods” if he wanted to go forward and charge Biden.

“But they are hanging their hat on the fact that this guy is effectively not mentally competent to stand trial,” he said.

“How pathetic is that for our country that this is the guy with the nuclear codes?”

DeSantis also accused the media of protecting Biden from scrutiny over his mental fitness for office, noting that if Biden were a Republican, things would be much different.

“If you had a Republican president or even a candidate who had the same level of mental acuity, same level of dementia as Joe Biden did, it would be a nonstop feeding frenzy by the corporate media,” DeSantis said.

“The media has very much run cover and interference for Biden.”

“I think the question is, is he went out on the press conference the other night, it was a disaster,” he continued.

“Did his staff not want him to do that or did they want him to do that knowing maybe this ends up causing the Democrat Party to look elsewhere come convention time?

“Because I can tell you as bad as Biden’s policies are, which is the main reason I’ve opposed him from the start, if you ask the average American voter, the thing they like least about him is the fact that he’s lost so much on his fastball and that he’s just not up to the job.

“That’s not something you can cure.”
