You may not have noticed, but there was a major shift of power at the White House on the morning of Friday, Nov. 19.
For just over an hour, on Friday, Nov. 19, President Joe Biden stepped down as president and Vice President Kamala Harris took over as “acting president.”
There is no report that Harris took any action during her hour as acting president and, according to the White House report, the entire time she was president Harris was in her vice presidential office. So Harris didn’t take the opportunity walk down to the Oval Office to sit behind the president’s desk.
It was actually a routine procedure. Biden had a colonoscopy Friday morning that required him to be sedated, so while he was under sedation he turned the reins over to Harris. President George W. Bush did the same thing when he had a colonoscopies, turning the country over to Vice President Dick Cheney.
On Friday morning at 10:10 a.m., Biden sent out an official letter to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and President Pro Tem of the Senate Senator Patrick Leahy, which states, “In accordance with the provisions of section 3 of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution, this letter shall constitute my written declaration that I am presently unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office of President of the United States. Pursuant to section 3, the Vice President shall discharge those powers and duties as Acting President until I transmit to you a written declaration that I am able to resume the discharge of those powers and duties.”
At 11:35 a.m., Biden sent out another official letter that states, “In accordance with the provisions of section 3 of the Twenty-Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution, I hereby transmit to you my written declaration that I am able to discharge the powers and duties of the Office of President of the United States and that I am resuming those powers and duties.”
If President Biden had not been able to return to office so quickly, it would have fallen to Harris to pardon the national Thanksgiving Turkey, which is on the president’s schedule for Friday afternoon.
She would have probably messed that up.
…and Biden is still full of it!
“I hereby transmit to you my written declaration that I am able to discharge the powers and duties of the Office of the President of the United States “. NO JOE, it was not brain surgery you had, it was a colonoscopy on your more intellectual end. You couldn’t perform as President before and nothing has changed. Can anyone imagine the amount of prep liquids it took to clean him out!
This was a dry run for Harris to assume the presidency, which may not be far off. God help us!
President Biden’s colonoscopy is certain to provide fodder for and/or impact on Greg Guttfeld’s poop jokes relating to the President. Bring ’em on.
Yeah, the results are in, and sure enough, he’s full of it.
Where’s Alexander Haig when you need him?
Scariest few minutes in the recent history of our once great nation, but it sounds like they were looking in the right place. By all means let’s pardon that turkey, there’s nothing else that needs doing… By the way, how’s that border situation doing? Now that we’re “back to normal” in DC, continue the current path to disaster so we can “build back better.” The rest of us who live in reality will thaw out our $40 bird that was $8 last year and heat up some beans while we scrape quarters from the sofa cushions to buy gas for the ride to work next week.
Unfortunately, they were unable to remove Biden’s head.
Who is going to pardon the pardoner?
We can and should be very grateful that nothing went wrong during that one hour.
