Joe Biden made a shocking admission during an appearance on MSNBC when he told viewers that he “could drop dead tomorrow.”
Appearing on MSNBC’s “The Sunday Show,” Biden was asked to convince voters to support him in spite of his age.
Biden is the oldest president in U.S. history. He turns 80 in November.
"I think it's a legitimate thing to be concerned about anyone's age, including mine," says Biden.
"Watch me. You know, am I slowing up? Am I don't have the same pace?…I could get a disease tomorrow, I could, you know, drop dead tomorrow." pic.twitter.com/o7jDVE5WVV

“I think it’s a legitimate thing to be concerned about, anyone’s age, including mine,” Biden began. “I think that’s totally legitimate.”
“But the best way to make a judgment is to, you know, watch me,” he continued. “You know, am I slowing up? Do I not have the same pace?”
“Or, you know, and that old joke, you know – everybody talks about the new, you know, 70s, 50s, you know all that stuff,” he said.
“I’m a big believer in fate. I could get a disease tomorrow, I could, you know, drop dead tomorrow,” he added.
In response to those who question his mental abilities, Biden said, “If they think I do, then it is fine. If not, they should vote against me — not against me, they should encourage me not to go, but that is not how I feel.”
“But Jonathan, right now, knock on wood, I do not want to jinx myself, I am in good health. All of my- everything physically about me is still functioning well, so you know, and mentally too, so,” he said to MSNBC host Jonathan Capehart.
“I can’t even say the age I’m gonna be! I can’t even get it out of my mouth!” he said.
Many Americans are asking questions regarding Biden’s mental acuity even though the subject is largely ignored by the mainstream media.
The 25th amendment is a vehicle that can be used to remove a president from office based on his inability to perform his duties. The amendment has never been used.
The 25th amendment allows the vice president and a majority of sitting cabinet secretaries to write to the Speaker of the House and the Senate’s majority leader that the president cannot perform their duties.

So, it would take Vice President Kamala Harris and a majority of Biden-appointed cabinet secretaries to bounce the president. That’d be a tall order — perhaps, unless, there really was to be a (tragic and unfortunate) scenario in which Biden undeniably loses his remaining mental capacity.
However, the 25th Amendment, ratified in 1967, exists for a reason. Congress was concerned about a potential constitutional crisis in the aftermath of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
Lyndon Johnson, Kennedy’s vice president, had no vice president from the time he succeeded Kennedy in November 1963 until after he won the presidency in his own right in the 1964 election with then-Sen. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota as his running mate. Humphrey became vice president in 1965.
It’s probably not going to happen, but it’s for the best that the United States has a legal mechanism to get incapacitated executives out of office in the event that they’re mentally unfit for the rigors of the presidency.
