Two Fox News hosts battled on Monday about Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s mental state.
During the Fox News program Outnumbered, host Kennedy Montgomery claimed that Biden’s campaign would only let him speak for 15 minutes at a time.
“I do think that Bernie Sanders, even after a heart attack, has come back much more energized,” Montgomery opined.
Left-leaning host Jessica Tarlov complained about the “false reporting” on Biden’s mental condition.
“I’m not sure that he was down to 15 minutes,” Tarlov told Montgomery. “But what you said does reflect something that’s going on. The right and Bernie Sanders — the MAGA folks and Bernie Sanders camps — are unifying and saying that Joe Biden has dementia.”
“You worried about Joe Biden’s mental faculties on this show!” Montgomery exclaimed.
“Kennedy!” Tarlov interrupted. “Saying that Joe Biden has missed a beat or forgotten that he was in Iowa or Ohio or whatever it is, and saying that a man has dementia — he has released more medical records, by the way, than Bernie Sanders, who had a heart attack months ago.”
“It is so reckless and irresponsible,” she continued, “for people to be speculating that this man, who very well could be the next president of the United States of America has dementia when there is no doctor backup.”
Tarlov reminded her co-hosts that President Donald Trump’s personal physician had revealed himself to be a “crackpot” with a misleading letter about the then-candidate’s health in 2015.
“I have never been a person to question President Trump’s mental fitness or his physical fitness,” Tarlov said. “I think that it is reckless to do that.”
“Are you sure?” Montgomery asked.
“Yeah, I am sure, Kennedy,” Tarlov shot back. “You find the tape.”

Denver cops busted for doing drive-by shootings of anti-police brutality protesters
In a video posted to Twitter, a young Denver man protesting the killing of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minnesota police officers, found himself on the receiving end of an attack by police himself as he filmed them riding on the side of a truck -- only to have his phone hit by a fired police projectile while still in his hand.
According to Rachelle D'nae, a staff writer at Slate, her brother went to the Denver protest and was filming the officers when the incident occurred.
"My older brother went to a protest in Denver last night. as the police were leaving, one of them shot him with a pepper pellet that smashed the back of his phone and exploded in his face. they were ~30 feet from each other and it looks like the officer aimed directly at his face," she wrote before adding in a second tweet, "when my brother told me he was going I prepared for the worst. I made sure he had my number memorized so I could bail him out if I needed to and I sat up until he made it home, trying not to cry as he told me he had been tear-gassed."

‘Absolute vacuum in leadership’: Internet shreds ‘coward’ Trump for hiding as 75 cities protest
President Donald Trump is under fire Sunday after the White House announced he will not be seen today despite five days and nights of protests in more than 75 cities across the country and governors in at least ten states activating the National Guard.
Possibly more than at any time during his three-and-a-half year old administration Trump is taking tremendous criticism for how he has managed the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and for his handling of the protests against the killing by police of George Floyd.
