Conservative pundit Dan Bongino says his sources in the Secret Service have told him that Joe Biden’s mental state is deteriorating to the point that is more than just a little problematic.
Bongino began the segment by recalling how before the November election, he had been told by agency sources that Biden’s mental acuity was rapidly deteriorating.
“Not a joke and not hyperbole – I’m hearing from people close to the situation that Biden’s cognitive decline is rapidly worsening and is becoming increasingly difficult to mask. The Democrats are going to have to make a decision soon,” Bongino tweeted (his account is no longer live).
Continuing with his interview, Bongino said it gave him “no joy in saying this and I mean that: [Biden] is in real significant trouble. And listen to me — everyone around him, everyone knows it. Everyone knows it. This is the scandal — that they’re not telling you how bad his condition is.
Bongino went on to say that even sources he has outside of the Secret Service but who are still in Biden’s orbit know that he’s not just ‘lost a step’ but he’s lost the ability to function adequately (ever wonder why we don’t see him but every couple of days and only then for a little bit at a time versus Trump who was large and in charge 24/7).
“It’s not a mystery. It’s the worst-kept secret in the White House,” Bongino said.
The former White House doctor who served for both former President Obama and for Donald Trump has issued a dire warning about Joe Biden.
Texas Republican Representative Ronny Jackson said that he believes Biden is suffering a cognitive decline and should be tested immediately.
“I think he’s demonstrating every single day that there is something going on,” he said to Fox News on Saturday.
“You don’t need to be a physician to look at this behavior and see there’s something concerning happening,” he said. “He’s just not aging gracefully at this point.”
“You can go back – there are forty years of tape of this man – he’s always made gaffes and stuff but these are different, he’s confused, he’s disoriented,” he said.
“We all know people who are 100-years old, who basically are as sharp as a tack, and we know people who are in their mid-60’s that having some cognitive difficulties…and I think he’s on that end of the spectrum,” he said.
“I’m just asking them when you do the physical exam include the cognitive assessment,” the representative said. “As far as I’m concerned the standard precedent has been set and they need to follow and do the same.”
“The far left and the mainstream media were demanding that be the new standard for anybody who’s going to lead our country and be our Commander-in-Chief and our head of state,” he said. “I’m just saying I agree with them at this point — we need to get it done.”
