Actor Jon Voight, who does not shy away from publicly making political statements, is calling for President Joe Biden to be impeached.
“Our police force must act on righteousness and guard our neighborhoods, our businesses, our children, our elderly, our veterans, and our handicapped. We must protect this nation and bring back safety. We’re all feeling very unsafe. We’re all angry,” Voight declared in the video.
The actor said that Biden “has wronged this nation’s glory” and “taken down our morals.”
“He must be impeached. We cannot wait another second having him dictate our path,” Voight said.
Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia said that she shared Voight’s view: “@jonvoight is correct and is saying how most people feel. I’m in complete agreement and I’ve introduced 4 articles of impeachment of Joe Biden,” the lawmaker tweeted.
The U.S. Constitution lays out the grounds on which a president should be impeached: “The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”
If Biden ever were removed from office, Vice President Kamala Harris would become the nation’s new commander-in-chief. “In case of the removal of the President from office or of his death or resignation, the Vice President shall become President,” the 25th Amendment states.
A recent Harvard CAPS–Harris Poll of registered voters found that a whopping 71% do not believe Biden should pursue a second term. Similarly, 61% do not think that former President Donald Trump should run in 2024.
President Biden, who has been underwater on his job approval numbers for quite some time, is the nation’s oldest president ever, and would be 86 by the end of a second term in office. He has previously said that he intends to seek reelection in 2024 as long as he has “good health.”
