Describing President Joe Biden, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume used the words “clearly deteriorating” and “clearly senile”. As a result of this seeming decline, Hume also wondered if the President can still finish out his term.
Brit Hume Thinks Biden Just Wants To Avoid Becoming a Lame Duck
The political analysts made his comments following an announcement by the White House that Biden will indeed run for a second term.
Hume did not believe the declaration outright. Instead, he said he thinks it’s a political statement. Earlier this week, White House Secretary Jen Psaki said that the 79-year old Democrat does plan to run again for reelection in 2024.
Hume likes to think otherwise. “I don’t think it’s at all clear that he intends to run again, but I do think as a political matter, you have to say that,” Hume noted.
If Biden said the opposite and admits to having no plans to run again, then he becomes a lame duck. Unfortunately, “lame duck presidents don’t do well,” he added.
Biden Unlikely To Finish His Current Term
In addition, Brit Hume said that Biden won’t be in any condition to run for reelection. In fact, Hume even called into question Biden’s ability to finish his current term. “‘I think the thing we have to watch is the question of whether he serves out his first term. He’s clearly deteriorating, he’s clearly senile,” he said.
Hume also questioned the president’s health, even as his doctors pronounced him healthy. “When you’re falling downstairs and so on, as he did climbing the stairs to Air Force One, that’s worrisome,” he explained.
Former White House Physician Questions Biden’s Mental State
A former White House physician supports Hume’s opinions. Representative Ronnie Jackson (R-TX), a former White House physician, agrees with the assessment. Jackson, who served under Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump, agreed about Biden's advanced age.
The 79-year old president is showing signs of “age-related cognitive decline”. As a result, Biden is far from being “mentally fit” to serve as president.
Jackson said that as far as he knows, Biden suffers from age-related cognitive decline. As a result, the President is not mentally fit right now.
“You don’t need to be a physician to look at him and to look at his behavior and some of the other stuff, just the way he shuffles away, stares off into space,” he elaborated.
“I know what that job entails, both physically and mentally, and how demanding it is. And I can tell you right now, I’m 100% sure that Joe Biden is incapable of doing that job,” the Texas representative added.
Jackson Questioned Biden’s Cognitive Fitness
Following a Biden speech last August where the president obviously flubbed his lines, Jackson posted his reactions online.
“That was embarrassing. There is something so obviously wrong with Biden’s cognitive fitness it was hard to watch. He should NOT remain President for another SECOND. We deserve better – MUCH better,” he tweeted.
Despite Biden’s seeming deterioration, Jackson said that the media continues to exercise double standards. The media often accused former president Trump of being old and senile.
However, Jackson believed that Trump was strong-minded. However, he convinced the former President to take a cognitive test to show his mental health status.
Trump passed the test by answering all questions correctly. However, when the same thing happened for Biden, mainstream media didn’t pick up.
Then, when Hume called out Biden’s old age, many came to defend the President.

Do you agree that at 79, President Joe Biden is clearly too old to function as an effective President? Do you think he can finish his first term?
