Major concerns have been raised following a Monday press conference where Joe Biden appeared visibly confused as he struggled to remember basic names.

Critics are now sounding the alarm and making growing calls for initiating the 25th Amendment as fears mount over Biden's mental fitness.

The incident occurred during the close of a presser for International Women's Day.

During the event, Biden appeared to forget the name of Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and the Pentagon.

Biden gave a short speech after Kamala Harris and Secretary Austin spoke.

“I want to thank you both and I want to thank the sec-, the, the, ugh, the former general, I keep calling him general but my, my, ugh, the guy who runs that outfit over there," Biden said, seemingly referring to the Pentagon.

"I want to make sure we thank the secretary for all he’s done to try to implement what we’ve just talked about and for recommending these two women for promotion," Biden continued.

"Thank you all and God bless you all and may God protect our troops.”

He then turned his back on the press and continued to make inaudible comments before walking off the stage.

The surprising part about Biden’s remarks was that approximately a minute earlier he did remember Austin’s name, referring to him as “Secretary Austin,” as The Daily Wire noted.

Grabien founder Tom Elliott clipped the video of the incident and wrote: “Whoops: Biden forgets the name of the Pentagon, as well as the name of his secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin.”


Byron York, the chief political correspondent at the Washington Examiner, also noted the incident, writing: “It appears he was referring to Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, who does indeed run that outfit over there, meaning the Department of Defense.”

Critics were quick to draw attention to the issue with many mentioning the 25th Amendment—which allows a president to be removed from office if they are deemed to be unfit.

While others suggested that the apparent incident was an example of why Biden has still not given a solo press conference after being in office for 48 days, which is by far the longest in modern history.

Democrat Bryan Dean Wright, who is a former CIA officer, wrote: “This is why we have the 25th Amendment.”

Jason Rantz, a Seattle-based conservative radio host, wrote: “President Biden forgot the name of his secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin. And that whole Pentagon place.

"Also: Senators and House members want to take away Biden’s war powers. It all makes sense now!”

Mark Krikorian, executive director at the Center for Immigration Studies, wrote: “This is why his handlers can’t let him hold a press conference or answer questions.”

Harrison Fields, communications director for Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL), wrote: “All jokes aside, the cognitive decline we are witnessing on days we are allowed to see @POTUS should concern everyone.”

Brent Scher, the executive editor at the Free Beacon, wrote: “Where are the 25th amendment folks?

"We had medical experts on CNN 24/7 because Twitter thought Trump might be slurring his words.”

Political commentator Dave Rubin wrote: “The scandal is the non-scandal.”

Charles Brady, an editorial executive at Fox Business, wrote: “It’s no wonder Biden’s staff won’t let him hold a press conference.”

Political commentator Stephen Miller mockingly wrote: “This is fine.”

Author Austin Ruse wrote: “Oh my gosh. He’s not there.”

Political commentator Rita Panahi wrote: “At what point will the bulk of the mainstream media become interested in these, err, lapses.”

Elijah Schaffer, a podcast host at The Blaze, wrote: “Who is running our country?”
