‘Signs of Senility’: Brit Hume Calls Out Biden’s Slipping Mental State

Breaking News

Between his bumbling about during a CNN town hall last week and his over the weekend episode where he seemingly says “my butt’s been wiped,” the condition of President Biden’s mental faculties had drawn increased scrutiny in recent days. And during an appearance on Monday’s Special Report, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume did what the liberal media refused to do and called it out, noting “these are signs of senility.”

“You know, Brit, the President obviously receives some pretty good press overall from the media,” anchor Bret Baier prefaced as he broached the subject. “But, there have been a couple answers recently at a town hall, also reporters question him where he has snapped at them or said something where people weren’t following it.”

He followed up with these examples of Biden’s incoherent ramblings:

BIDEN: You are not going — you are not going to get COIVD if you have these vaccinations.

The question is whether or not we should be in a position where you, um, are why can’t the – the – the experts say we know that this virus is, in fact, um – uh, it’s going to be, excuse me, we know why all the drugs are not temporarily approved but permanently approved.

UNIDENTIFIED JOURNALIST: Are there people who— in the Democratic Party, who want to defund the police?

BIDEN: Are there people in the Republican Party who think we are sucking the blood out of kids?

“You know, just some answers that the media didn’t make a big deal out of them but made you scratch your head,” Baier added.

According to Hume, the second soundbite, which was from the town hall, was “pretty dramatic,” because “The man obviously had lost his train of thought and couldn’t recover it and stammered around for a little while.”

“These are signs of senility,” he declared, “which is a common thing in elderly people. And Biden, like me, is certainly elderly.”

Earlier in the segment, Baier and Hume discussed Biden’s slipping poll numbers when it came to optimism about the future of the country. “45 optimistic, 55 pessimistic, and then look at the approval rating for the President on specific issues,” Baier reported. “COVID he’s at 63 percent approval but you look at crime, gun violence, immigration down in the high 30’s.”

Recalling those statistics, Hume posed that Biden’s blunders were working to crater the public’s optimism. “And I can’t believe that people who see that who are not already committed to him in one way or another or committed against him don’t look at that and find it alarming. That, you know, at a time when their worries are increasing the polling showing, you know, pessimism in the country is increasing,” he said.

Adding: “They see that the president of the United States losing his train of thought and unable to blurt out a coherent answer to a question. I think people find it disturbing and makes them wonder about the future.”

Fox News Channel’s Special Report

BRET BAIER: Good evening, Brit. I wanted to talk about a couple of new polls. ABC/The Washington Post poll came out with some interesting numbers. One is the outlook on the country’s future. This optimism/pessimism has really shifted in recent weeks. 45 optimistic, 55 pessimistic, and then look at the approval rating for the President on specific issues. And obviously, COVID he’s at 63 percent approval but you look at crime, gun violence, immigration down in the high 30’s. Your thought on this turn about?

BRIT HUME: Well, partly, Bret, I think it’s the fading of the honeymoon period. You know, every administration starts out with high hopes in the public and they tend to fade with time because not everything that’s promised gets delivered and in this case, enormous promises were made, a very ambitious agenda. Only part of which has been enacted and part of which may be in trouble.

In addition, of course, you have concrete things like the increase in prices pointing to a serious outbreak of inflation, whose duration we don’t yet know. You have lawlessness on the border, which has been obvious about which nothing of any consequence seems to be happening or being done. And then, of course, there’s lawlessness in the major cities and that’s something that people find frightening and do not want to put up with.

Plus, of course, there is the sense that, you know, that China is on the rise still. We don’t seem to check China and so forth there is a lot of concrete reasons for this I think contributing — and, of course, I should add to that Bret, the fact that COVID cases are rising. That always frightens people. I’m not sure cases is the best way to measure that, but people, I think, are obviously worried about a new round of shutdowns and mask mandates. Some which appear to be happening.

BAIER: You know, Brit, the President obviously receives some pretty good press overall from the media. But, there have been a couple answers recently at a town hall, also reporters question him where he has snapped at them or said something where people weren’t following it. Here’s a couple of examples in recent days.

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: You are not going — you are not going to get COIVD if you have these vaccinations.

The question is whether or not we should be in a position where you, um, are why can’t the – the – the experts say we know that this virus is, in fact, um – uh, it’s going to be, excuse me, we know why all the drugs are not temporarily approved but permanently approved.

UNIDENTIFIED JOURNALIST: Are there people who— in the Democratic Party, who want to defund the police?

BIDEN: Are there people in the Republican Party who think we are sucking the blood out of kids?

[Cuts back to live]

BAIER: You know, just some answers that the media didn’t make a big deal out of them but made you scratch your head.

HUME: Well, that second one you showed there was pretty dramatic. The man obviously had lost his train of thought and couldn’t recover it and stammered around for a little while. These are signs of senility, which is a common thing in elderly people. And Biden, like me, is certainly elderly.

But I think it’s becoming increasingly obvious that this is the case. And I can’t believe that people who see that who are not already committed to him in one way or another or committed against him don’t look at that and find it alarming. That, you know, at a time when their worries are increasing the polling showing, you know, pessimism in the country is increasing. They see that the president of the United States losing his train of thought and unable to blurt out a coherent answer to a question. I think people find it disturbing and makes them wonder about the future.

BAIER: All right, Brit, as always. Thank you.
