Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) is the latest GOP voice to call for President Biden’s resignation over health concerns. Biden’s gaffes have been becoming more frequent as he appears to struggle with the smallest of presidential tasks.
“The most effective thing Joe Biden can do to solve the inflation crisis he created is resign. He’s the problem,” Scott said Tuesday ahead of Biden’s planned remarks on inflation.
“Let’s be honest here. Joe Biden is unwell. He’s unfit for office. He’s incoherent, incapacitated and confused. He doesn’t know where he is half the time. He’s incapable of leading and he’s incapable of carrying out his duties,” Scott added.
According to Fox News, “Scott’s comment comes as Biden is hammering the senator, who is the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), over a plan he released this year for a GOP agenda if they take the Senate majority.”
Scott’s plan is “an ultra-MAGA proposal that would raise taxes on 75 million, primarily middle-class, American families while sunsetting vital programs like Social Security and Medicare,” a White House official said.
“Senator Scott doesn’t have a leg to stand on to talk about prices when he continues to lead Congressional Republicans in pushing a MAGA agenda that would raise taxes on half of Americans and jeopardize retirement benefits like Social Security and Medicare,” White House director of rapid response Mike Gwin said in a statement to Fox News Digital.
Scott also shared his concerns over Biden’s mental health on Twitter:
“Joe Biden is unwell. He’s unfit for office. He’s incoherent, incapacitated & confused. If Biden wants to actually fix the inflation crisis he created, he should resign.”
