During an interview with MSNBC, Joe Biden made the surprising statement that he “could drop dead tomorrow.”
On “The Sunday Show” on MSNBC, Biden was urged to persuade Americans to support him despite his advanced age.
The oldest president in American history is Joe Biden. In November, he turns 80.
“I think it’s a legitimate thing to be concerned about, anyone’s age, including mine. I think that’s totally legitimate. But the best way to make a judgment is to, you know, watch me. 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. I’m a big believer in fate. I could get a disease tomorrow, I could, you know, drop dead tomorrow,” President Joe Biden said.
In answer to those who questioned his mental faculties, Biden replied that it was okay if people believed he did have a mental illness.

While the topic is mostly disregarded by the mainstream media, many Americans are curious about Biden’s mental sharpness.
A president may be removed from office under the 25th amendment if he is unable to carry out his duties. The rule has never been applied.
According to the 25th amendment, the vice president and the majority of currently serving cabinet secretaries are able to inform the majority leader of the Senate and the Speaker of the House that the president is unable to carry out their responsibilities.
