Screen legend and outspoken conservative Jon Voight took to Twitter last week to lament the current state of the nation, and in doing so, he also argued that the time has come for the impeachment of President Joe Biden to commence, as Fox News reports.
The 83-year-old actor has voiced his support for former President Donald Trump over the years and now believes that under his successor, “we’re all feeling very unsafe.”
Voight demands impeachment
In a video message posted to the social media platform, Voight did not expand on the specific grounds on which he thinks Biden might be impeached, but instead made reference to the sense of “turmoil” and “darkness” under which he thinks the nation is currently operating, as The Daily Wire noted.
Speaking directly into the camera, Voight’s made his appeal to his legions of followers in stark terms, saying, “My dear friends, we’re all saddened by so much turmoil that has been brought upon this life we live. Can this darkness be lifted? Can we all share joy once again and see eye to eye?”
Offering relatively broad brush strokes about what he sees as the greatest perils plaguing the United States, Voight continued, “We have a troubled nation with much horror from these criminals that are ruining lives.”
“We must stop this now. We must bring back our nation’s safety,” the actor said, adding that police must “guard our neighborhoods, our businesses, our children, our elderly, our veterans and our handicapped.”
Biden to blame
In terms of assigning responsibility for the nation’s sinking morale, Voight pulled no punches, asserting that it “starts with the seat of the President of the United States.”
“[Biden] has wronged this nation’s glory, he has taken down our morals, our true gift of the land of the free,” Voight opined.
Proposing what he clearly views as the only viable solution to the ongoing crisis in this country, Voight declared, “He must be impeached. We can not wait another second having him dictate our path.” WATCH:

Not the only one
Though Voight’s monologue was mocked by Hollywood liberals such as actor William Baldwin, as Fox News noted, the octogenarian conservative is far from alone in thinking Biden should be impeached and potentially removed from office.
Just last summer, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called for Biden to be impeached over the botched U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, and earlier this year, Charlie Hurt of the Washington Times demanded the same due to the president’s dereliction of duty when it comes to halting illegal immigration, but at least for now, the political will to pursue their recommended course of action, unfortunately, appears prohibitively limited.
