The Hill: Biden might be removed by the 25th Amendment

“If that is indeed mental decline we’re seeing, it will likely get worse,” ~The Hill Op-ed

By Madeleine Hubbard

The Hill published an op-ed questioning whether President Joe Biden will be removed from office under the 25th Amendment, which can be invoked when a president is considered unable to carry out his duties as commander-in-chief.

After acknowledging that Democrats and the media questioned former President Donald Trump’s mental fitness for office, opinion contributor Merrill Matthews wrote Tuesday that “Biden’s issues are substantively different.”

“At times he’s lucid and in control, but at other times he seems baffled and confused,” wrote Matthews, who is a resident scholar with the pro-limited government think tank, the Institute for Policy Innovation. “It’s not unusual to see this behavior in older people.”

Biden, who turns 80 this month, has faced questions about his cognitive capabilities since before taking office.

“If that is indeed mental decline we’re seeing, it will likely get worse,” the author said.

Matthews sees it as “very unlikely” that Vice President Kamala Harris would invoke the 25th Amendment, but it is possible Democratic leaders could “convince Biden not to run for reelection.”

Biden may not concede that his mental health is declining, so Democratic leaders could use the 25th Amendment “as leverage to get him to agree” to not run, Matthews said.
