GOP congressman claims President Biden is “mentally unstable,” wants to indict First Lady Jill Biden



During the last Presidential election, many Republicans used Joe Biden’s age as an argument as to why he shouldn’t be President. Donald Trump may have led the charge in stating that Biden was too old, but he was far from the only politician to do so

In fact, many of those parroting Trump’s claim even suggested Biden could end up a victim of dementia if he keeps going.

Only a year ago did Trump brag about having “crushed” a dementia test, and pushed for Biden to take the same test. Now, another Republican has gone all out in an attack on the President.

North Carolina Republican Representative Madison Cawthorn – the youngest member of Congress – recently labeled Biden “mentally unstable”. He went on to attack First Lady Jill Biden for being “so cruel to her husband”.

Joe Biden’s been President for close to six months. The first half-year of his time in the White House has been tough, especially because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is still affecting the US, as well as many other parts of the world.

At the same time as President Biden and his fellow Democrats are trying to solve the things they thought weren’t working under Donald Trump’s presidency, Biden’s also come in for some pretty rough fire from Republicans.

During the Presidential Election, Biden was heavily criticized by Trump for several things. One of them was for being too old.

New mental health attack on President Biden

Much of Trump’s presidential campaign, at least in so far as slandering Joe Biden, centered around painting his political rival as being mentally unfit. Months on from the election, not much has changed.

Last month, 14 Republicans signed a letter calling on President Biden to take a cognitive test in order to show that he’s in adequate mental shape to lead the country.

The movement was led by former White House physician Ronny Jackson, now a Republican US representative from Texas.

“I think he’s demonstrating every single day that there is something going on,” Mr Jackson said. “You don’t need to be a physician to look at this behaviour and see there’s something concerning happening.

“I’m just asking them, when you do the physical exam, include the cognitive assessment,” he added.

“As far as I’m concerned the standard precedent has been set and they need to follow and do the same.”

President Trump took a similar test –the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) which can show signs of mild Alzheimer’s disease – in 2018. He bragged about scoring great numbers, however was later mocked for bragging.

“Joe Biden is mentally unstable”

In 2018, Jackson also stated that Trump had “incredibly good genes, and it’s just the way God made him.”

Now, though, another Republican has chosen to attack President Biden for his perceived declining mental health.

Republican Representative Madison Cawthorn, the youngest member of Congress, recently said that Biden is “mentally unstable”.

Then, when asked if congressional Republicans should hold Biden accountable for “putting America in reverse” when it comes to the pandemic, Cawthorn said:

“You know, I would love to have a congressional inquiry to understand exactly what Joe Biden’s reasoning is, but unfortunately I don’t think he could find his way to Congress.”

Cawthorn also argued that Jill Biden should be called out for being “so cruel to her husband”.
