There is no denying that Joe Biden is notorious for his frequent gaffes and slip-ups during public appearances, with many people suggesting that the only thing that helps dementia Joe avoid complete disaster is cognitive-boosting medication.
This was confirmed by Fox News host Tucker Carlson himself, saying Biden takes “pills” to improve his cognitive functions before speaking in public.
This allegation was vehemently denied by Biden in the past, but Carlson said on Friday night’s show that he spoke “directly” with a witness who saw the alleged drug in the 2020 election campaign.
Here’s what Carlson said:
“How did he manage to get through the campaign?”
“Well, it turned out, we learned later, his staff, supervised by Dr. Jill, his wife, was giving him pills before every public appearance–checking the time and at a certain hour giving him a dose of something. Now it’s not a guess, we’re not making that up. We’ve spoken directly to someone who was there and saw it happen multiple times.”
Carlson also claimed that his source noted Biden was “like a small child” before taking his alleged medication.
“Before drugs, this person said Biden was ‘like a little boy.’ You couldn’t relate to him, he changed completely because he was on drugs and obviously still was.”

Before the “pills” allegation, Carlson claimed that Biden is suffering from dementia and is “incapacitated.”
This is not the first time the US president has been accused of using cognitive enhancers; for instance, during his failed re-election campaign, President Trump claimed that his then-Democratic rival used drugs in order to survive debates.
“I mean there’s possibly drugs. I don’t know how you can go from being so bad where you can’t even get out a sentence,” Trump said in September 2020.
Former White House physician and current Texas Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson, who served in the Obama and Trump administrations, has raised alarms about what he considers to be Biden’s declining mental state.
In 2020, he called on Biden to take a cognitive test and earlier this month revealed that former President Barack Obama had sent him a “scathing” email for publicly calling out Biden’s alleged dementia.
Here’s what Jackson said on a podcast with Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN):
“All I know is that he’s got age-related cognitive decline, right. He is not mentally fit right now. He’s 78 years old and you can see it. You don’t need to be a physician to look at him and to look at his behavior and some of the other stuff, just the way he shuffles away, stares off into space.”
“I know what that job entails, both physically and mentally, and how demanding it is. And I can tell you right now, I’m 100% sure that Joe Biden is incapable of doing that job,” the doctor added.
