Brit Hume: US Sees Biden Is ‘Palpably Senile’

Fox News’ Brit Hume observed what is clear to many if not most Americans. President Joe Biden is operating with diminished mental capabilities and may be considered “palpably senile.”

The respected journalist said the plain truth is now apparent to the average voter. And Biden’s current behavior is far removed from his long history of verbal and physical stumbles in which he showed a general lack of mental acuity.

He notably wandered off on the White House lawn, sending Secret Service agents scrambling to ensure his safety. Biden also recently froze in place during a public event, seemingly unaware of his surroundings.

Even more striking was the recent decision by the special counsel investigating Biden’s alleged mishandling of classified materials while he served in the Senate and later as vice president.

Prosecution was avoided when Robert Hur determined Biden to be an “elderly man with a poor memory.”

Democrats predictably erupted in anger, but as Hume noted, the truth is obvious for all who care to see it. The 46th president is in a state of sharp mental decline, and there is no foreseeable way that he could effectively serve another term in the White House.

Hume was asked on Super Tuesday if he foresaw independent voters leaning heavily toward former President Donald Trump.

The journalist told Fox News’ “Special Report” that there is a reason for this preference. “I was saying back when it was not at all fashionable to say it, that he is senile. And now I think he is palpably senile and the country sees it.”

Biden’s recent lapses only add to the jitters felt by voters who know he is the most powerful person in a volatile world.

While recently discussing the Israeli war on Hamas terrorists, Biden referred to Egyptian President Abdel Fatah el-Sisi as the president of Mexico.

He also recalled talking to both French President Francois Mitterrand and German Chancellor Helmut Kohl. Only, both had been dead for several years by the time Biden believed he spoke to each of them.

Then there was last year’s bumbling speech in Connecticut on gun control. The Democrat closed his ramble by declaring “God Save the Queen, man.”

Only, the queen was dead and King Charles III was the new monarch.
