The presidential election for 2024 is currently ongoing. Democrats are still awaiting Joe Biden’s announcement.
But Joe Biden could be barred from the presidency thanks to this top Republican.
President Joe Biden will be 86 years old at the end of his second term if re-elected.
According to polls, the majority of Americans do not feel Biden is physically or intellectually fit to be President.
Even Democrats recognize that if President Biden seeks a second term, his age will be a major issue in the election.
Biden embarrasses himself every time he goes in public.
He recently forgot the name of Martin Luther King III’s wife when singing Happy Birthday to her.
According to polls, the majority of Americans feel the President should take a cognitive test and make the findings public.
Of course, Biden recently claimed to take a test when he went in for a three-hour physical evaluation that did not include any cognitive or mental aptitude exams.
And now, one Republican member of Congress is attempting to force President Biden to take a cognitive test if he wishes to compete for re-election.
Representative Scott DesJarlais (R-TN), a former doctor, today advocated for an amendment to the Constitution that would require candidates to demonstrate proof of “cognitive competence” to run for President and Vice President.
“No person shall be eligible to hold the office of President or Vice President unless the person demonstrates cognitive competence,” the short amendment reads.
According to Rep. DesJarlais, the amendment has bipartisan support among the American people.
“This should be a completely nonpartisan issue and all Americans deserve leaders that are mentally competent,” DesJarlais told the Washington Examiner. “How this is not already a requirement codified in law defies logic.”
The House Republican Doctors Caucus is assisting the Tennessee Congressman in developing the words, which describe the types of testing that would be required to assess whether or not a candidate is “cognitively competent.”
Of course, with Democrats controlling the Senate and Biden in the White House, DesJarlais’ proposal has little chance of passing.
Doctors would almost probably not consider President Biden to have “cognitive competence” if it became law.
Nevertheless, Scott DesJarlais highlights the most significant challenge Joe Biden will confront in 2024.
