Former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy said President Joe Biden will not secure the nomination for the Democratic Party due to concerns over his mental acuity, following the Justice Department’s special counsel report. Mr. Ramaswamy indicated that the Democratic establishment will replace the president with “a different puppet.”
“I think they laid a trap for him. They invited him effectively to prove to the American people that he doesn’t have the mental acuity to do it. He fell into their trap. And now they’re laying the groundwork for the coming three months to sideline him and actually put up who the real nominee is going to be,” he said.
The 38-year-old biotech entrepreneur then predicted that the Democratic Party would consider former First Lady Michelle Obama as its presidential candidate for the 2024 White House bid.
‘Elderly Man With Poor Memory’The report described President Biden as “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory.” The report also referred to the president’s mental fitness as “hazy,” “significantly limited,” and showed signs of “diminished faculties and faulty memory.”
The report highlighted that President Biden struggled to remember significant events such as the timing of his son’s death, the duration of his vice presidency, or the Afghanistan debate.
Following the report, President Biden held a press conference, dismissing the special counsel’s findings. “My memory is fine,” President Biden said angrily amidst intense questioning from the press. But he mixed up the presidents of Mexico and Egypt during the press conference.
The White House also refuted the report’s findings about the president’s memory, calling them “gratuitous” and “politically motivated.”
When asked about how President Biden handled questions regarding his mental fitness during the press conference, Mr. Ramaswamy said it seemed like “a form of elder abuse.”
“This is a man who was clearly personally hurt, personally insulted but didn’t have the mental acuity to process or even communicate the extent to which he had been hurt or insulted. And so the reality is, this man is a puppet; the puppet masters who are wielding him have lost their use.
“It’s a really sad situation to watch play out in plain sight. This is the President of the United States,” he said.
Call to Invoke 25th AmendmentRep. Claudia Tenney (R-N.Y.) wrote a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland on Feb. 8, calling for the removal of President Biden through the 25th Amendment following the special counsel’s report. In the letter, she expressed “grave concerns” regarding the president’s mental fitness.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) agreed with Ms. Tenney, noting that the president “can’t have it both ways.”
