Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered” contained some heated moments on Friday, especially when the topic of Robert Mueller’s House hearings came up.
Fox News commentator Rachel Campos-Duffy questioned Mueller’s performance — where he often stumbled over his own words and needed questions repeated — and even suggested that the man may suffer from “early-stage dementia.”
“It is silly to try and make us think that what we saw, we didn’t see,” she said. She also questioned Mueller needing to be accompanied by his lawyer at the hearings.
“I thought the lawyer was a visiting angel on not a lawyer. He is in early-stage dementia,” she said.
Author and Fox News contributor Jessica Tarlov jumped in to question the statement from Campos-Duffy.
“Really!? You’re a doctor and you’ve seen him!?” she said.
The two clashed and Tarlov eventually compared the statement to similar remarks made about Hillary Clinton’s health during the 2016 presidential election.
“Don’t do it,” she said about Mueller diagnosis. “Do not talk about peoples’ health you know nothing about!”
Turning Point USA founder and president Charlie Kirk then jumped into the conversation and said “the media and the left have been doing that for years.”
Campos-Duffy proceeded to double down on her Mueller comments when she said, “we were told he was sharp as a tack, we all saw what we saw.”

The panel discussion then truly descended into chaos with the hosts eventually arguing over Fusion GPS.
Host Harris Faulkner tried to calm things down a little by saying, “we’re not doctors.” She also said even Democrats have questioned Mueller’s performance during the House Judiciary and Intelligence hearings.
“It is not Rachel and Charlie making things up,” she said. She also mentioned David Axelrod questioning Mueller’s performance.
“I don’t think David Axelrod said he’s suffering from early onset dementia!” Tarlov responded.
After that the panel managed to move on with Tarlov noting that Mueller’s performance does not take away from the content of his report, which many would argue is close to zilch.
Campos-Duffy is not the only person to question Mueller’s health following the hearings. Mark Levin did so too this week during an appearance on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends.”
“Look, I’ve seen people with onset dementia. I’m not going to mock this man,” Levin said of Mueller. “He obviously shouldn’t have been there. He should’ve never headed this investigation. I’m not making allegations, I’m not trying to be provocative, but the idea that Rod Rosenstein appointed this man to head the office is an outrage and he’s the one that ought to be questioned.”
Ainsley Earhardt jumped in to temper the rumor mill.
“We have not confirmed anything about his health. There has not been anything released about that,” she said.
“I agree,” Levin responded, “but he made it quite obvious.”
“He was not on his game yesterday,” Earhardt replied. “Everyone has said it was really sad to watch but, you know, we need to pray for him I guess, pray for his family.”
