Millions of Americans are deeply concerned about Joe Biden’s mental fitness to be president, including members of his own family.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson said, “I know a bunch of members of his family and some a couple of them very well. And I knew for a fact that certain members of the family were very concerned about his cognitive ability.”

“They didn’t expect him to get the nomination,” Carlson added. “Nobody did. And he got it and they were freaked out about it.”

In 2019, Hunter Biden joked about his dad having dementia with his therapist and friend, Keith Ablow.

While discussing Democratic presidential candidates, Ablow said, “Your dad is the answer. Any man who can triumph over dementia is a giant. Think what he could do for our nation’s needed recovery.”

Hunter said the joke made him laugh out loud. Responding in all seriousness about the dementia, Hunter said his dad can’t remember “much these days” as a result of dementia.

“But since it’s all fake news anyway I don’t see the problem,” Hunter added.

Carlson went on to say, “I’m not speculating. I know that for a fact.”

‘So I knew that the family believed he was in cognitive decline. So there’s that and that’s news. That’s news,” the Fox News host said.

A recent Fox News poll showed that 49 percent of respondents think that Biden has the “mental soundness” to be president while 48 percent said no.

Shortly after the 2019 text exchanges with Hunter, Ablow, a former Fox News contributor until 2017, had his medical license suspended following an investigation into allegations that he took advantage of patients, including engaging in sexual behavior with them. The investigation found that his practice was a threat to the “health, safety and welfare” of the public, according to the New York Times. He would later settle sexual misconduct lawsuits in June 2019.

The White House released Biden’s results from his first physical exam shortly before Thanksgiving last month with his physician saying he “remains a healthy, vigorous, 78-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency.”

However, his physical exam did not include a cognitive test, which concerned Dr. Marc Siegel, a clinical professor of medicine and a practicing internist at NYU Langone Medical Center.

“If we’re looking into neurological causes for the gait change, I don’t think the way they characterize that in the physical is sufficient,” Siegel told Fox News last month. “I want more information. I want to know what the MRIs show, and I want to know what the nerve conduction EMG shows to rule out things that are more extensive, that by the way, can be associated with cognitive changes like mental status, like dementia.”
