Video has emerged of President Joe Biden looking utterly confused upon reaching the Middle East on Wednesday.
Take a look for yourself:

“What am I doing now”
The video is from Day 1 of President Biden’s trip to the Middle East. He is there to visit multiple countries, including Israel and Saudi Arabia.
On Wednesday, Air Force One reached the Ben Gurion Airport in Israel. The video picks up with Biden already on the ground. He got the red carpet treatment.
After descending the stairs and reaching the tarmac, it quickly became apparent that Biden was lost and confused and had no idea what he was doing.
Biden even said so himself, asking, “what am I doing now?” with a puzzled look on his face.
Those who greeted him can then be seen trying to nudge Biden into the right position for a photo op. Then, the video cuts, and it returns with Biden speaking to the greeters. It ends with Biden slowly being ushered to a different location.
“. . . the truth and honor of the Holocaust.”
The sad part is that this video probably isn’t even the worst thing that happened at the Ben Gurion Airport – let alone Biden’s Middle East trip.
During the arrival ceremony at the airport, Biden had this to say:
I will once more return to the hallowed ground of Yad Vashem to honor six million Jewish lives who were stolen in a genocide and continue, which we must do every, every, day, continue to bear witness. To keep alive the truth and honor of the Holocaust.
On this particular occasion, Biden did recognize his mistake and correct it, saying, “horror of the Holocaust, honor those we lost so that we never ever forget that lesson.” But still, this isn’t the image that a world leader ought to be projecting.
Time for the 25th Amendment?
Many social media users responded to the video of Biden asking “What am I doing now?” by making the case for Biden to be removed from office under the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Diane Daley tweeted:
Good grief. He’s deteriorated to such an embarrassing point that the 25th Amendment is a real, imminent possibility. God help us. Do a cognitive test!!
Others, however, argued that it is long overdue.
