Many have questioned whether Joe Biden is fit for office. It may be even worse than anyone ever thought.
And Joe Biden’s face went white when he saw these mental competency results.
Joe Biden shows Americans every day that he is not as spry as he used to be.
Just recently, he tripped up the stairs of Air Force One, making this the second time it’s been caught on camera.
Couple that with his constant rambling stories that go nowhere and stumbling through simple sentences, and any rational person would ask if he’s competent.
In response to these events, Republicans like Nikki Haley have called for anyone over the age of 75 who runs for office to take a mental competency test.
And her idea is gaining steam.
Americans tend to approve Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley’s plan to demand mental fitness testing for legislators over the age of 75.
According to a Fox News poll conducted from February 19-22, 77% of the 1,006 registered voters polled support the plan, while only 20% oppose it.
Haley’s idea appears to be aimed at President Joe Biden, 80, and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, 76, who are the only major presidential candidates over the age of 75.
Trump has endorsed the concept, saying that anyone running for president should be required to complete a mental competency exam.
Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, a former Democratic presidential contender, called the proposal “absurd” and stated that “we should also be fighting ageism.”
It’s any wonder why Sanders, 81, would oppose a test of his mental competency.
The concept of mental fitness tests for senior politicians is part of Haley’s larger demand for a new generation of government leaders, believing that many politicians in positions of power are past their prime.
“America is not past our prime. It’s just that our politicians are past theirs,” Haley told supporters at a rally earlier this month.
“We won’t win the fight for the 21st century if we keep trusting politicians from the 20th century.”
So far, Haley and Trump are two of three declared Republican presidential contenders, along with novelist and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy.
Numerous other Republican officials, including Gov. Ron DeSantis, are anticipated to make choices about their 2024 plans in the coming months.
