Sen. Rick Scott (R-Florida) issued a scathing criticism of President Joe Biden over sky-high inflation in a Tuesday statement.

“Let’s be honest here,” the senator wrote. “Joe Biden is unwell. He’s unfit for office. He’s incoherent, incapacitated and confused. He doesn’t know where he is half the time. He’s incapable of leading and he’s incapable of carrying out his duties. Period. Everyone knows it. No one is willing to say it. But we have to, for the sake of the country. Joe Biden can’t do the job.”

“It’s simple. The most effective thing Joe Biden can do to solve the inflation crisis he created is resign. He’s the problem. Getting him out of office is a quick and easy solution,” Scott added.

The President responded to Scott’s statements in a press conference later on Tuesday.

“I think the man has a problem,” he said, blaming Scott and other Republicans for the gridlock in Congress. He accused them of slowing down progress to create frustration to eventually pass an “ultra-MAGA agenda” if they gain control of Congress in the upcoming election.

Other Republican senators agreed that Scott’s comments were merely politics, because “surely he doesn’t really want Vice President [Kamala] Harris to be president,” according to one senior Republican senator.
