Fauci: ‘Unfair’ to Judge Biden’s Mental Fitness from Debate

Dr. Anthony Fauci has weighed on the controversy surrounding Democrat President Joe Biden’s obviously degraded mental and physical state.

After last week’s disastrous debate with President Donald Trump, even Democrats and their corporate media allies are now calling for Biden to step down.

The American people saw with their own eyes that Biden is not fit to be running the country and realized that he probably isn’t in charge.

However, Fauci is now insisting that it’s “unfair” to judge Biden’s health after it was exposed on live TV during the debate.

83-year-old Fauci, a longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), spoke about the issue on “The Takeout” podcast.

CBS News Chief Washington Correspondent Major Garrett asked Fauci if there was anything that would “medically alarm” him based on what he saw during the debate.

Fauci, who served as Biden’s medical advisor before retiring at the end of 2022, demurred, noting that he thought it would be “inappropriate” to say.

Looking at someone on a “one-shot basis” leaves too much room for unknowns, Fauci explained.

He claimed those unknowns include questions about whether Biden had a “bad cold” or did he “take an antihistamine to make him groggy.”

“We don’t know what went on and I think it would be unfair and inappropriate to try and diagnose something from just a 90-minute clip,” he added.

Biden, 81, seeks to reassure Democrats that he remains capable of serving and running for re-election.

He faces growing pressure to step aside and give the party a chance to rally behind a replacement.

During the debate, sources close to Biden began telling news outlets the president had been suffering from a cold.

But White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters Biden “was not taking any cold medication.”

Fauci also told Garrett that, based on his interactions with Biden, he has “no doubt” that Biden has the vigor and mental capability to continue serving as president.

The interview took place as Fauci promoted his new book, “On Call.”

He said the book describes how Biden asked “probing” questions and was “analytical” in his discussions with the president.

Fauci said what he witnessed during the debate last week did not reflect his personal experiences with Biden.

“To me, it just looked like a bad night,” Fauci claimed.


In another recent interview on CBS prior to the debate, Fauci said Biden was “absolutely” fit to lead for another term.

At the same time, Fauci criticized what he described as President Donald Trump’s “missed opportunities” from a “health standpoint.”
