According to the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson, “The game is over for Joe Biden.”
On a recent episode of Tucker Carlson Tonight, the host highlighted the fact that even the Democrats are now admitting what Republicans have been saying for years, namely, that Biden’s cognitive decline is so bad that he is not fit to lead the country.
Carlson began the segment with a recent news item involving former President Barrack Obama and Rep. Ronnie Jackson (R-TX), the former White House physician. It had to do with a private email that Jackson recently revealed that he received from Obama during Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign.
At one point during Biden’s presidential campaign, Jackson suggested that Biden ought to undergo a cognitive assessment because he said this:
I’m here to ask you for your help. Where I come from, you don’t get far unless you ask. My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate.
In the letter, Obama chastised Jackson for suggesting the cognitive assessment.
That’s why I have to express my disappointment at the cheap shot you took at Joe Biden via Twitter. It was unprofessional and beneath the office that you once held. It was also disrespectful to me and the many friends you had in our administration. You were the personal physician to the President of the United States as well as an admiral in the U.S. Navy. I expect better, and I hope upon reflection that you will expect more of yourself in the future.
The big difference
The reason Carlson brought this up is to contrast what is happening now with what was happening then.
Referring to the email, Carlson said:
So, that wasn’t just Obama speaking. That was the uniform command of the people who run the Democratic Party throughout the 2020 campaign. Do not notice what Joe Biden is actually like. If you see him on television turn away because you might conclude he is fundamentally, physically, cognitively unfit for office. You can’t say that and if you do, Barack Obama will scold you personally immediately.
Carlson continued by explaining how things are today:
Well, fast-forward a few years. Joe Biden is now the president and his mental decline is no longer possible to deny, and therefore it’s no longer off limits. Barack Obama isn’t going out and defending Joe Biden’s competence anymore. Everybody watching, everyone in the media, that would include Barack Obama’s former advisers, is now in agreement that Joe Biden is senile and cannot govern the United States.
He went on to cite several examples of this change.
“The game is over”
Carlson, in the remainder of the segment, casts blame on those Democrats who got the country into its current mess by lying about Biden’s cognitive health in order to get him elected and in order to get the Democrats in power.
They hid that fact from you and the rest of the country because they wanted more power, but now the game is over for Joe Biden . . . So, suddenly our media is admitting what we noted three years ago and that everyone knew, that this was a scam. They are living with the mess they created, and we hope that they will never be allowed to avoid responsibility for what they did.
