Some of President Biden’s remarks at a recent press conference while in Brussels left the hosts of Fox News’ “Fox and Friends” scratching their heads.

Biden is currently overseas meeting with NATO, G7, and the EU council to address strategies for dealing with Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine. He told the press that at his first G7 meeting in Great Britain during the summer of 2021, he declared at the time that “America is back.” He seems to be holding onto that optimism, but not without some criticism from the morning show trio.

“America is back?” Ainsley Earhardt asked incredulously on Friday. “I mean, can America get any worse?”

Preceding that point in the segment was a clip of Biden saying he would be “fortunate” if Trump were to run against him in 2024. Poll after poll indicates that the majority of Americans don’t think he will, or even should run in 2024, owing most obviously to his age and alleged mental decline. There are countless other reasons Americans have to be unenthusiastic of a prolonged Biden presidency and Earhardt laid out quite a few of them.

“Look at the economy, 40-year high inflation. Gas prices through the roof. Now we’re facing food shortages – that’s in the news this morning; food’s hard to get already, grocery store shelves are empty. Everything is more expensive,” she said. “We have an open border. Our adversaries are really pressing, they’re getting more and more aggressive. China’s watching Taiwan — looking at Taiwan now after everything happening in Ukraine and Russia.”

The president also seemed to challenge the press to find a European leader who didn’t think he was up to the task of running America and being a leader in NATO; an indication that perhaps some of the constant rebukes of his mental fitness and catastrophic foreign policy decisions are getting under his skin.

Host Brian Kilmeade added that Russia has only invaded Ukraine with Biden as the U.S. president, and previously, with Barack Obama as president. In concert with that is the confounding move to ease sanctions on Russia amid the war in Ukraine and allow them to negotiate a renewed nuclear deal with Iran, a known state sponsor of terrorism.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) wrote on his website recently, “The Biden administration is dismantling sanctions and is aching to secure a new agreement with the Iranian regime that is even weaker than the original catastrophic Obama-Iran nuclear deal. The Biden administration is so committed to their deal that they are willing to make Iran a nuclear client for Putin, including work that amounts to a $10 billion subsidy for his war machine.”

Host Steve Doocy remarked that although Biden may feel confident in the prospect of going up against Trump in 2024, he needs to be reminded the majority of Americans feel he has made the economy worse, and they place the blame for inflation and outrageous gas prices squarely at his feet.

“Biden is looking so weak and he’s embarrassing,” Earhardt observed. “For him to say America’s back? He’s delusional.”
