FN’s Rachel Campos-Duffy on signs of Biden slipping: ‘Obama and Valerie Jarrett are running the show’

Fox & Friends co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy bluntly asserted that President Biden is not in control and that former President Barack Obama and the CEO of the Obama Foundation, Valerie Jarrett, are actually running the show.

The entire panel on the segment seemed to be in agreement with Campos-Duffy’s statement which was guaranteed to send the Left into a frenzy of denial.

Surprisingly, co-host Steve Doocy picked up the ball and ran with it sounding like a conservative for once. Perhaps he did so because Biden’s slippage is so obvious it can no longer be realistically denied by anyone on either side of the political aisle.

“We know that the staff is running the show, and whoever puts the stuff in the teleprompter is actually the President of the United States,” Doocy noted.

“Well, Obama and Valerie Jarrett are running the show from Kalorama. We all know that,” Campos-Duffy contended.

Doocy then went on to cite TIME magazine and a killer piece in the Wall Street Journal that pulls back the curtain on “Weekend at Bernie’s” at the White House.

“I think it’s very telling that TIME Magazine did this piece on him where it revealed, you know, more like what he’s like. But at 9:00 last night, the Wall Street Journal came out with a blockbuster. They talked about, and the headline is ‘Behind Closed Doors, Biden Shows Signs of Slipping,'” Doocy commented.

That statement earned agreement from co-host Lawrence Jones.

“Absolutely. And it said right there. ‘Participants in the meeting said the 81-year-old president performed poorly at times. The White House said Biden is sharp and critics are playing politics,'” Doocy continued.

The Wall Street Journal’s article is pretty damning, “When President Biden met with congressional leaders in the West Wing in January to negotiate a Ukraine funding deal, he spoke so softly at times that some participants struggled to hear him, according to five people familiar with the meeting. He read from notes to make obvious points, paused for extended periods, and sometimes closed his eyes for so long that some in the room wondered whether he had tuned out.”

Leftists are decrying the piece because it quotes Republicans but if they were honest it points out the obvious about Biden.

“Last year, when Biden was negotiating with House Republicans to lift the debt ceiling, his demeanor and command of the details seemed to shift from one day to the next, according to then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and two others familiar with the talks. On some days, he had loose and spontaneous exchanges with Republicans, and on others he mumbled and appeared to rely on notes,” the media outlet continued.

“I used to meet with him when he was vice president. I’d go to his house,” McCarthy told the WSJ. “He’s not the same person.”

Some Democrats are begrudgingly admitting there’s an issue with the president that can’t be ignored anymore.

“Some who have worked with him, however, including Democrats and some who have known him back to his time as vice president, described a president who appears slower now, someone who has both good moments and bad ones,” the Wall Street Journal wrote.

But not the White House… they are spinning political propaganda for all it’s worth to get Biden reelected, “White House officials dismissed many of the accounts from those who have met with the president or been briefed on those meetings as motivated by partisan politics.”

Even more telling, is that according to the Wall Street Journal, after the media outlet interviewed Democrats, the White House would brief them and they would come back to stress how savvy and strong Biden is.

That has all the earmarks of a Wilsonian-style presidency. The only remaining question is who is actually running things at the White House. Campos-Duffy steadfastly believes it is Obama and Jarrett.
