Senator Ted Cruz addressed the removal of President Joe Biden from office using the 25th Amendment due to his alleged cognitive decline during his “Verdict with Ted Cruz” podcast on Thursday, asserting he’s not in favor of it because it’s “dangerous as hell.”

Co-host Michael Knowles asked Cruz during the podcast, “It seems clear, I think even to honest liberals, that Joe Biden has some age-related impairment. He’s not the man he was five or 10 years ago and he was never all that sharp to begin with. So, it does raise the question. Should we be talking about invoking the 25th Amendment?”

“There’s no doubt he is diminished—and diminished significantly due to age,” the senator responded. “I think the threshold for the 25th Amendment is really damn high. And it’s particularly damn high when the voters were on notice of the impairment and elected him anyway.”

Cruz commented, “Look, it was not a secret a year and a half ago that Joe Biden had, you know, lost about 65 miles on his fastball.”

“Right,” Knowles said, agreeing with the assertion.

“So, I would be hesitant to go down that road of the 25th Amendment. I think it’s dangerous as hell,” Cruz went on to state.

“I think having a president in office who is less than fully aware of what’s going on, who our enemies believe is less than fully aware of what’s going on, who our friends believe is less than fully aware of what’s going on, who everybody believes is, to a significant degree, out of it—that’s a real problem,” the senator contended.

Cruz went on to state that Biden’s mental decline was one of the reasons that Putin invaded Ukraine. That Biden “is so weak and ineffective, he didn’t believe there would be meaningful pushback.”

On Monday, Cruz also said that America is living through a “Mr. Magoo presidency” during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity. That characterization was referred to during the podcast as well.

The senator’s remarks follow a call by Fox News host Tucker Carlson to remove Biden from office using the 25th Amendment to do so.

Cruz did not directly address Carlson’s suggestion but made it clear he thought it was a very bad idea allegedly because once used it could be invoked again and again against sitting presidents by members of an opposing political party.

Carlson called Biden “a man who is losing the ability to regulate his emotions,” on Monday.

That comment was in reference to Biden appearing to call for regime change in Russia while he was in Poland, which he now denies doing.

“All right. Joke’s over, too much is at stake,” Carlson remarked. “If there was ever a time, if there was, in US history, ever a time, to invoke the 25th Amendment, it is now. As Joe Biden himself put it, ‘For God’s sakes, this man cannot remain in power,’ for all of our sakes.”

  1. “Dangerous as hell” Ted, really? How dangerous is it to have a senile incompetent as the leader of the free world? Stolen elections have consequences!!!

  2. There are 3 kinds of Liberal, Communist, America hating, immoral, corrupt, fact hiding, non-binary, queer loving, race baiting, lying, DemoRat and RINO Republicans’: 1) They don’t care what happens, they just hate Original American Values – 2) Their ignorant of facts or just ignorant, – 3) They want the destruction of America by any means possible, and promote all the above agenda’s,

  3. Dangerous as calling patriots arrested Jan. 6, terrorists, like you did Ted Cruz? Ted Cruzis wrong in so many ways. IMPEACH BIDEN NOW. FJB. GO BRANDON
    APOLOGIZE TO JANUARY 6 VICTIMS and their families Ted Cruz. I don’t believe a word Ted Cruz utters.

    1. Ted Cruz is a shrinking violet. I supported him because he objected to the fraudulent votes that were cast for “Mr. Magoo” on January 6th. The more I hear him speak lately, the more I think he is a RINO!!!

  4. There would be NO improvement in the situation with a “President Cackles”! Just take back the House, elect enough Senators to have 2/3 (highly doubtful), Elect PRESIDENT TRUMP as SPEAKER of the House, and THEN IMPEACH the turnip and the trollop!

  5. Harris would be worse than Biden. Wait until January when the GOP takes back the House then remove both of them.

    1. I’m not sure. As incompetent and unqualified as the blow job queen is to be president, at least she doesn’t have alzheimer’s.

  6. Given who’s in the line of succession, I sadly have to agree with Senator Cruz. This is close to the textbook definition of “lose-lose.”

  7. At,: Red Goalie
    Part of me wants to agree with Send. Ted, but a larger part of me is in total agreement with you. We have suffered this long and if our elected conservative congressionals will band together along with rational Democrats we can make it to midterms. From there Joe can be impeached for bribery. Deralection of duty and other crimes. I still believe this is page 2 of the play book. They still have Harris to deal with but I think that’s small issue.

  8. The infanticidal Scamdemocrats had no problem impeaching trump twice. the GOP RINO SWAMP RATS have no spine. These politicians & federal employees collect a paycheck, compliments of the tax payers, yet they believe that we are their subjects.

  9. Cruz is right but for the wrong reason. Who has done a better job than Joe Biden of getting the independent voter to vote Republican? Once the Republicans win the midterms Joe’s day in the sun is done. I really do want to see him stumble and fall going up the steps to AF1 just one more time though. Soon I hope.

    1. Watch him burn all that expensive jet fuel that could heat our homes, our factories, and our cars for workers to go to work, that America is self sufficient, and not dependent on communist China junk.,

  10. The other problem is you are then stuck with the cackle queen and she is horrendous, then imagine the shaking drunk who can’t speak a cohesive sentence would move up. This country is screwed. The best we can do is take over the house and senate and limit dementia kings ability to pass any of his plans of destruction.

  11. We shouldn’t have to introduce the 25th amendment, just send in the WAGGONER GROUP!!
    Nice, neat, clean little package!!
    Thank you!

  12. I never put it together but the resemblence is remarkable. He is Mr Magoo! However his blindness didnt lead to his stupidity and his inability to recognize reality. Jim Backus would be envious and jealous. The sad thing is that Biden isnt acting.

  13. Come on Man! First you say his cognitive decline is a large part of the reason Putin invaded Ukraine but it would be a dangerous precedent to remove him??!! Oh, so it’s better to be on the verge of WWIII and have a mentally impaired Brandon with his finger on the trigger? I used to have a lot of respect for Ted but now, not so much. And, oh yeah, there’s that time on the floor of the Senate that you called the Jan. 6 protesters “terrorists”…….

    1. That’s what I was thinking as I read it. He says we SHOULDN’T do it. But then lists a slew of reasons why they SHOULD!

    2. Democrat part need to convince hin to step down – that is the proper thing to do

  14. Sen. Cruz may well be right, as, what should be done is to prosecute the entire Xiden cabal for violating their oaths of office, and, for treason. They don`t belong in office, but, in jail, or, worse!

  15. Was it First Lady Jill Biden’s idea to have Kamela Harris as her husband’s Vice President? Anti-25th Amendment to oust her husband as POTUS. Kamela Harris would be worse.

  16. IF the corrupt courts would demand 2020 election audits in all swing states… this National NIGHTMARE would end, and Trump would be rightfully placed back into the WH.

  17. I have been calling senile old confused Joe “Mr Magoo” Biden for years, glad a senator agrees with me. For all of you too young to remember who Mr Magoo is, look it up-it fits 100%

    1. I doubt the original Magoo was a massively corrupt grifter, liar and pedophile like Joke Biden.
