Huckabee: ‘If Biden can’t handle a 90-minute debate, he can’t be president.’



In a recent segment on “The Ingraham Angle,” hosted by Brian Kilmeade on Fox News, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee joined the discussion to critique Joe Biden’s debate performance and analyze the current state of the Democratic Party. Huckabee’s insights highlighted significant concerns about Biden’s leadership and the Democratic Party’s handling of his presidency.

Huckabee did not mince words as he discussed Biden’s decline over the past year. “For a year, Joe Biden has been going downhill and we’ve all seen it,” Huckabee remarked. He criticized the media for previously covering up Biden’s issues, saying, “The press kept telling us, no, he’s the sharpest tack in the drawer. He is at the top of his game. This ridiculous White House aide that said why he’s in much better health than most of us.”

Kilmeade brought up the comprehensive list compiled by journalists Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker, detailing Biden’s numerous public gaffes and moments of confusion. “They put together a comprehensive list of all the failings of Joe Biden,” Kilmeade noted, including Biden forgetting the HHS secretary’s name and misstating the purpose of Ukraine aid. Huckabee responded, “They have the ink all over their hands. That’s as simple as it could be. And I think that there’s culpability. They should be ashamed of themselves, and they should apologize.”

Huckabee also criticized Biden’s refusal to take a comprehensive cognitive test or hold an extensive press conference to address these issues. “Joe Biden, if he’s really sharp, he could end it all by simply coming out and having an extensive press conference, taking all the questions or having a medical test done and releasing very publicly the results of the test. But he’s not doing that,” Huckabee argued.

In response to Kilmeade’s report on Biden’s excuses for his debate performance, where Biden admitted he “almost fell asleep on stage,” Huckabee was blunt. “If he can’t travel around the world and do what presidents do, he can’t be president,” Huckabee stated. He added, “If he’s going to sleep in the middle of a 90-minute debate after he’s basically rested for a week…there’s the answer. He can’t be president.”

The segment concluded with Huckabee’s sobering assessment: “This is a tragedy for America and for the world.” As the Democratic Party faces increasing scrutiny over Biden’s competence, Huckabee’s remarks reflect a growing concern about the future leadership of the country.
