Do you recall the 25th Amendment?
Back when Trump was in office, every Democrat seemed to be an authority on the subject. The section of the constitution that everyone appeared to focus on involved the removal of the president without an impeachment trial if he is “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” even if its main goal is to set a pathway for presidential succession.
Every time Donald Trump made a mistake, it seemed as though there was a groundswell of discussion about how crazy he was and how the Constitution offered a way to remove him from office — provided, of course, that “the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress” declare him incapable of carrying out his duties in a written statement.
Even if the president has changed, the 25th Amendment hasn’t. But it doesn’t seem like we’re discussing it as much anymore. President Joe Biden demonstrated why it’s more important than ever on Tuesday, as he does frequently when his mouth is open for any length of time. Of course, if anyone who discussed using it was actually worried about a president who was “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.” due to mental health issues.
In this instance, Biden sat down to speak with CNN about a variety of subjects. The majority of the headlines concerned the reduction in oil production by OPEC+ and Russia; Biden characterized Putin as a “rational actor” who “totally miscalculated” by invading Ukraine while threatening Saudi Arabia and other OPEC nations with “consequences” for indirectly assisting Russia with the reduction in oil production.
However, when Biden was praising his alleged “Inflation Reduction Act,” that’s when everyone’s attention should have been drawn to it.
If you’ve been paying attention to the omnibus spending package, you’re aware that it has the same impact on inflation as my decision to purchase a Porsche would have on the financial security of my child’s education because, well, I could drive her to school in it.
Instead, according to the Daily Caller, the tax-and-spend plan was mostly intended to check off items on the Green New Deal agenda, with $370 billion of it set aside for climate change legislation.
But Biden added that was not all. Banks will “take off the sidelines” a sizable sum of money from the banking sector for green investments.
Just be careful not to press him for the precise figure because he’s a little… fuzzy on it:

The phrase “a billion, trillion, 750 million, billion dollars off the sidelines of investment” is accurate.
Who or what is it? That’s somewhat significant because there are several orders of magnitude between those two sets of values. In a Bank of America research, it was predicted that businesses would spend $740 billion “to satisfy carbon reduction goals over the next decade or so,” according to Biden.
It didn’t take the Biden haters very long to bring up the standard defense: He had a childhood stutter, so please stop picking on him.
Biden had just been asked about the Bank of America’s opinion on inflation.
He noted that BoA published research predicted that the $369bn Inflation Reduction Act will increase “incremental spending for US companies of $740 billion in capex towards carbon mitigation efforts”.

Alright, Mr. Flash Knight Does remembering a someone who passed away make you stutter as a child?

This was Biden in September, infamously looking around the room for a Republican lawmaker who had passed away in a vehicle accident a month prior. For the love of Pete, a tribute film to Rep. Walorski was going to be shown at this ceremony, Politico’s Meredith Lee Hill wrote.
Biden, thanking bipartisan lawmakers for making the conference happen, appears to reference the late Rep. Jackie Walorski without realizing she passed away in August

That’s not how kids stutter. Additionally, they do not encourage one to declare, “Let me start off with two words: Made in America!” before an audience at a Maryland car plant.
