Co-Host Of ‘The View’ Feels ‘Duped’ By Biden’s White House

Daytime TV’s conservative voice, Alyssa Farah Griffin, expressed her disillusionment with President Joe Biden’s performance in the recent presidential debate. The former Trump administration official conveyed her frustration during an episode of “The View,” where she discussed feeling misled by the White House about Biden’s capabilities.

Griffin noted that while corporate media and outlets like The New York Times are beginning to call for Biden to step aside, “The View” panel remained conflicted. Joy Behar attempted to draw a parallel between Biden and Ronald Reagan, who was re-elected in 1984 and later diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Ana Navarro argued that Biden was “overprepared.” In contrast, Griffin highlighted the severity of the president’s debate performance, suggesting it was more than just a poor showing.

“This is historically bad, and I think we need to be awake to the stakes of it because the time is really critical,” Griffin stated. She called for transparency from the White House regarding Biden’s condition, saying, “By the way, this White House should tell us. I feel duped. I feel like I’ve been told this guy’s doing gymnastics.”

Griffin’s remarks reflect a broader concern about Biden’s age and mental fitness. Videos of Biden’s gaffes, such as reaching out to shake hands with people who weren’t there and needing guidance from his wife and others, have fueled skepticism. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has dismissed these clips as “cheapfakes.”

The debate disaster has sparked a reevaluation among some Democrats and media figures about Biden’s suitability for re-election. Griffin’s comments indicate a shift in sentiment, as she expressed shock at Biden’s performance, despite long-standing concerns about his age.
