If you have paid much attention to politics since President Donald Trump has been in office, you will have likely heard the rambling of some sad Democrat or another going on and on about they feel our Commander in Chief is not mentally fit for office.
Some have even invoked the 25th Amendment, which allows Congress to remove a sitting president who is no longer able to carry out his or her duties. The amendment has only been used a grand total of three times in the entire United States history.
However, it is essential to note that in each of these cases, the power of the Oval Office was only temporarily taken from the President and given to the Vice President during a time when the President needed to be put under anesthesia for either surgery or medical testing.
Never has it actually been used in its full power to remove a president altogether from office.
Naturally, Democrats, still upset that Hillary lost what should have been an in the bag election, are trying to change that and get Congress to use the Amendment to oust Trump.
It seems every few weeks one pathetic soul drudges up this solution in response to a tweet or decision or a million other reasons they don’t agree with that Trump has made. And every few weeks, no one takes it much too seriously.
One main reason for that is that President Trump has gotten himself cognitively tested by a well-known and accredited doctor. Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson, who had served under President Obama and now Trump until 2019 when he announced a run for the House in Texas, administered the test and testified that Trump “aced” it.
Trump now has blistering proof that he mentally and physically “fit” for office.
However, according to Dr. Jackson, Democratic candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden most certainly does not.
And I have to agree; he may have a point there. I mean, how times have we seen him make a fool of himself in front of hundreds, if not thousands over the last few months in his attempt to get back to the White House? It’s been rather embarrassing, really.
Remember when he stated that “poor kids are just as bright and talented as white kids.?” Or what about when he said that racism in America could be fixed by letting kids listen to a record player. Or when he literally poked and shoved a potential voter, telling him to “go vote for someone else.”
And, of course, there have been the many times he said a wrong name, used an incorrect year, or even made up entire stories, like being arrested in South Africa, having his wife killed by a drunk driver, or claiming that 150,000 Americans have died in gun violence.
All of those on their own should be enough to rule this man as incompetent for office or let us know he isn’t the man for the job. But alas, this is the very electable Joe Biden, the one every establishment Democrat in the nation assumed would be taking the cake. They almost even claim his affinity for blunders as an endearing trait.
But let me tell you, a man who can’t remember that he is not currently the vice president, has no place in leadership of any kind, let alone running an entire nation.
And his latest gaffe in Charleston, South Carolina, proved that more than ever.
He actually told the crowd there that he is running “for the United States Senate” and that if they didn’t like what they say from him, they could “vote for the other Biden.”
This is so sad.
Here @JoeBiden says to the crowd in South Carolina that he is "running for the United States Senate" and that if they don't like him they can "vote for the other Biden."
I honestly wish he would've retired & not subjected himself to the rigors of this campaign. pic.twitter.com/mygFnsrdjC

His campaign claims this phrasing was taken out of context and that he was talking about his time spent as a senator. However, as you can clearly see from the video below, he wasn’t.
“Where I come from, you don’t get far unless you ask. My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over. If you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden. Give me a look, though, OK?”
Here is the full, unedited, frequently bizarre speech that @JoeBiden gave in Charleston, South Carolina where he declares he's running for the United States Senate.
That moment is at 2:43.
It DOES NOT come at a time of him reflecting on his Senate career.

It’s no wonder Dr. Jackson is requesting that Biden be subjected to the same testing Trump took.
Jackson tweeted, “Remember the cognitive test I gave @realDonaldTrump? The one he aced! Sounds like somebody else might need some testing done!! Scary!!”
Scary, indeed. I say the test should be a requirement.
