Megyn Kelly said that former President Trump had lost “multiple steps” mentally and was no longer the same man he was in 2016.
The podcast host and former Fox News anchor said the 77-year-old former president was starting to show his age â and it wasn’t pretty.
“Thereâs no question Trump has lost a step or multiple steps,â Kelly told conservative commentator Glenn Beck Friday. “He is confusing Joe Biden for [Barack] Obama … I know he’s now saying he intentionally did that â go back and look at the clips, it wasn’t intentional.”
“The reference about how somebody is going to get us into World War II, confusing countries, confusing cities where he is, and itâs happening more and more,” she said.
“This is what happens when youâre 77-years-old. Trump seems inhuman, but heâs not inhuman. Heâs a human. Heâs a man,” Kelly continued. “DeSantis’ line about ‘Father Time spares no one,’ was a good one. So, look, if itâs between Trump and Biden, I donât think thereâs any question whoâs more fit and more capable. But are we really going to pretend that Donald Trump is just as vibrant and mentally sharp as he was in â16?”
The moment was immediately seized upon by Trump’s primary opponents â particularly Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis who circulated the clip on X. Team DeSantis has tried to make hay of Trump’s age and has noted that âFather Time is undefeatedâ
Kelly and Trump have a long personal history dating to the 2016 presidential election. The former president famously dismissed her tough questions of him at the time by saying she had “blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.“
Trump has repeatedly confused President Biden for Obama in recent public statements â but has insisted the slip-ups have been intentional.
âWhenever I sarcastically insert the name Obama for Biden as an indication that others may actually be having a very big influence in running our Country, Ron DeSanctimonious and his failing campaign apparatus, together with the Democratâs Radical Left âDisinformation Machine,â go wild saying that âTrump doesnât know the name of our President, (CROOKED!) Joe Biden. He must be cognitively impaired,” Trump wrote in a Truth Social post last month.
