Harris Says She’s ‘Ready To Serve’ If Biden Can’t

As questions about President Joe Biden’s age and mental ability continue to swirl, Vice President Kamala Harris said recently that she’s “ready to serve.”

The Wall Street Journal pressed Harris about whether Biden has the mental capabilities to make it through another four years, and she responded by saying she was ready to jump in the president’s seat if need be.

At 81 years old, Biden is already the oldest president to serve in the White House. If he were to be reelected, he would be 86 years old at the end of his second term.

It’s not just his age that has raised alarms in the minds of doubters. On multiple occasions in his presidency, Biden has stumbled over questions, often misspeaking when talking about foreign dignitaries.

But, the concern about whether Biden is even fit for the White House came into focus last week, when Special Counsel Robert Hur released his report following the investigation into classified documents found at Biden’s Delaware home and Washington, D.C., office.

In the report, Hur pointed out that Biden had difficulty recalling when his son, Beau Biden, passed away or the time frame in which he served as vice president. The report recommended that Biden not be charged with a federal crime, even though he willfully held classified documents, in part because he lacked mental acuity.

“We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” the report stated.

Biden tried to brush off the damning report, joking at times with reporters, but he only made himself look worse.

The entire situation is bringing into focus one very important question for voters: What is the likelihood that a vote for Biden in the 2024 election ends up being a vote for Harris?
After all, if something were to happen to Biden — or if he was determined to be unable to mentally continue his duties after being reelected — it would be Harris who would be sworn in as the nation’s first female president.
