“Some of Biden’s most senior appointees are contradicting him in public. If you cover politics, it is shocking to see that,” he says.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson explained why Joe Biden’s obvious cognitive decline makes him “not capable of running the country,” citing the spectacular fall of Afghanistan to the Taliban as the latest example.
“We have learned a lot in the past five days. Maybe the most important thing we’ve learned is that Joe Biden is not capable of running the country. Joe Biden is senile,” Carlson said on his Friday show “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
“Saying that out loud is not an attack on Biden, any decent person feels sorry for him. You watch him gaze vacantly into the middle distance or stumble like a drunk man trying to cross an icy street as he careens through his prepared remarks.”
“There is no joy in watching any of that, it could be any of us someday and probably will be. It’s not Joe Biden’s fault he can’t think clearly, it is an indictment of the people around him,” he continued.
Carlson pointed to the U.S. military’s hasty and botched withdrawal from Afghanistan as further evidence that Biden can’t lead America.
“The entire U.S. military has just been humiliated by illiterate peasants in turbans, and if that’s not insulting enough, many of them were carrying our rifles as they did it,” Carlson explained. “It makes you wonder about the future of the West and who is going to replace us when we’re gone? Someone in authority probably ought to be thinking about that, and about a lot of other things, too.”
“What are we going to do when the Chinese finally move against Taiwan? How are we going to respond when there’s a credible challenge to the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency? Etc., etc., etc.”
“All we can say for certain at this point is that Joe Biden will not be making any of the big decisions going forward,” he continued. “He is not capable of being the President in crisis. So, who will be? We can’t say, but it’s clear if you watch closely that things are changing very fast in Washington.”
Carlson then noted that Biden’s own appointees and allies are distancing themselves from him, with Pentagon officials publicly contradicting him.
“Some of Biden’s most senior appointees are contradicting him in public. If you cover politics, it is shocking to see that. It’s a violation of the first and most ruthlessly enforced rule in any White House, which is don’t diminish the boss,” Carlson said. “But suddenly, they’re doing just that and they’re doing it openly.”
“What is going on here? These are literally the people who got Joe Biden elected President,” Carlson noted. “He would not be President without these people. And now, just seven months into his administration, they are telling you that he has failed personally. It does not make sense and it’s not the issue. Afghanistan is hardly the first disaster.”
“Something else is going on here. We don’t know what it is, exactly, but it’s pretty obvious,” he added.
