President of group quits

The President of our group, during  a heated part of the meeting, said she wanted it in the minutes that she is handing over the Presidency of the group to the Vice President, she didn't want it anymore, can she then come back and take over as President again and run the group.  This person says she only follows Roberts Rules of Order.  Thank you.

No one motioned to accept the resignation nor a vote. If the V. P. took the Presidency then his position would be empty at that moment.  One person said meeting was ended because it was totally off topic and people were getting up to leave.  Being the recording secretary I wrote that the meeting ended in discourse and the time, no motion to end the meeting was made, President wouldn't end the meeting even when asked to.

Not necessarily.  One of the major jobs of the VP is to preside and (possibly) perform the duties of President in the absence of the President.  Just because the President left the room in a huff and the VP took over the presiding doesn't necessarily translate into a resignation.  It isn't unheard of for an officer or member to storm out of the room declaring they are resigning but the assembly (liking said officer or member and hoping the resignation was said in the heat of anger) takes no action until the next meeting (and possibly has someone reach out to the person to see if they were serious about it).
