The events of the last few days have taken a rather large toll on the White House, and on Americans’ confidence in their Commander in Chief.
It was President Joe Biden’s expediting of the US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan that kicked off a serious surge by the Taliban in that nation, with the terror group taking control of the entire country within just eleven days – beheading American-allied journalists and assaulting numerous women and girls along the way.
Now, after the Taliban failed to keep American troops out of harm’s way ahead of an August 31st departure deadline, Biden is taking a ton of heat for having trusted this horrific organization.
At least one Congressman is now moving past criticism, however, and into action.
U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn, a freshman Republican from North Carolina, is calling on Vice President Kamala Harris to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove President Biden from office following the deadly, botched withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan.
“Our nation is at a crisis point,” he wrote in a letter to Harris and the rest of the cabinet Thursday.
He warned of China’s ambitions on the world stage, the resurgent Russia, rising inflation, chaos at the southern border and other global predicaments threatening the U.S. – and argued that confronting them will take strong, decisive leadership.
“Joe Biden’s physical inability to lead is not a political talking point – it’s a demonstrable fact,” Cawthorn told Fox News on Thursday evening. “He is not mentally fit to serve as president of the United States.”
Cawthorn did not pull any punches.
In his letter to Harris, he wrote that as a member of the president’s inner circle and a former presidential primary debate opponent, she has seen clearer than anyone Biden’s “current cognitive limitations.”
“As the person that works closest with the president, you are also the one who best knows the differences between the perception the West Wing wants to project and the ugly reality,” he added.
The White House has not replied to Cawthorn’s letter as of this writing.
