Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren said Saturday she believes it is only a matter of time — a short time, in fact — before Democrats move to replace “shadow President” Joe Biden with Vice President Kamala Harris.
Lahren’s comments during an interview with Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro come amid new questions about Biden’s physical and mental capacities after he fell three times while attempting to climb the jetway steps to Air Force One on Friday.
As Pirro opened the segment, which included civil rights attorney and Fox News contributor Leo Terrell, she noted that the liberal press had a field day with former President Donald Trump when he appeared to walk slowly and definitively down a ramp after giving a speech at West Point in 2020 before playing a montage of several commentators claiming to be concerned about his health.
Calling it “disgusting hypocrisy,” Pirro asked Lahren to respond.
“We all feel sorry for Joe Biden,” Lahren began. “Nobody wants to see anybody struggle, ever. But the double standard is the only standard of the left. We’re not supposed to talk about mental acuity, we’re not supposed to talk about mental stability.”
She went on to explain that she believes Democrats are already planning for a post-Biden period and are grooming Harris to replace him.
“The fact of the matter is this: The left is going to dump Joe Biden in five months, maybe six months, and put Kamala in, as we all knew,” Lahren speculated.
“We were never supposed to talk about this, we were never supposed to hint at this, that Joe Biden may not be up for the job. Now it is perfectly clear,” she added.
“And we would never talk about somebody that was clearly mentally unstable, maybe somebody that was struggling, we would never talk about this. Except for the fact that this is the President of the United States of America. We have every right to talk about it, we have every right to be concerned,” the Fox Nation host continued.
“His own party said, ‘Hey, maybe, maybe not the nuclear codes, maybe this is not the best idea.’ So before they go and rip on conservatives for talking about mental acuity, they wanted to take the nuclear codes from Joe. Clearly, they also know something we all know. This is not good for our country. And the world knows it,” she added.
For his part, Terrell agreed with Lahren, noting that he’s only “hearing crickets from the left regarding Joe Biden’s health condition.” He added that “[w]hen you look at the totality of the circumstances, something is wrong with Joe Biden.”
Biden, Terrell continued, is “an embarrassment,” as he repeated a number of times that “something is wrong” with the president.
“I want to hear from his White House medical doctor,” said Terrell,” to the agreement of Pirro. “The worst thing that could happen to this country is for ‘Kamala Socialist Harris’ to become president.”
“Where is the call for the 25th amendment?” Pirro responded, which was repeatedly invoked by Trump’s political enemies, though he never displayed the kind of mental acuity decline many see in Biden.
To that point, Lahren suggested that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s oft-repeated call to invoke the 25th Amendment for Trump wasn’t really about him at all.
“No, no, no,” said Lahren. “They knew that Joe Biden was not up for the task to be President of the United States. They set this up long before. He is a puppet, a shadow president for the far left. They will toss him out, they will dispose of him, just like they planned to for months.”
“Joe Biden is not running this country,” Terrell said, winding up the segment. “It’s being run by a circle of socialists. Why do you think AOC and Bernie Sanders are so happy? Because they are controlling the White House right now.”
