Fox & Friends weekend host Rachel Campos-Duffy has triggered a furious response from the White House after blamed Jill Biden for allowing her husband to run for the US Presidency. Amid the Afghanistan crisis and falling approval rates, the spotlight has returned to President Joe Biden’s advancing age and cognitive clarity with the Fox News host claiming the President is “mentally frail”. She went on to slam Ms Biden for having “failed the country” by allowing her husband to take high office in his “mental state.”

Ms Campos-Duffy told Fox News viewers: “When you look at what’s hurting America when you look at this lack of leadership, and you wonder who is responsible for putting someone this incompetent and frankly this mentally frail in this position?”

“As a political spouse, I can’t help but look at Jill Biden,” added the wife of former Wisconsin Representative Sean Duffy.

“No one knew better his state of mind than Jill –  Dr. Jill Biden,’ Campos-Duffy continued.

“And If you ask me, the most patriotic thing Jill Biden could have done was tell her husband – to love her husband – and not let him run in this mental state that he’s in.”

“I think she failed the country as well,” she added. 

Jill Biden’s press secretary Michael La Rosa immediately hit back at the Fox News hosts on Twitter.”

This is disgusting,” penned La Rosa.”@RCampusDuffy and @FoxNews know better, they can do better and their viewers deserve better, hope they’ll apologize to the First Lady and leave this kind of talk in the [trash] where it belongs.”

Mr Biden’s opponents have repeatedly cast doubt about the US President’s health but doctors found him to be a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency” when they examined in 2019.

None of you can define what an American is!”

Mr Biden added: “You can’t define it based on religion, ethnicity, race, culture.”

Fox News contributor Joe Concha slammed the remarks, saying: “I just tell my five and seven-year-old every day that ‘you live in the greatest country in the world’.

“That’s what it means to be American’s: you have freedoms and you have a life here that you can be whatever you want.”
