The premise of the slippery slope argument is often dismissed outright by Democrats who refuse to accept that certain actions will invariably lead to logical conclusions.
Disregarding that reality has seemingly turned into a downward slope of its own as Fox News host Tucker Carlson argued that while President Joe Biden may be senile, “he’s clearly the smartest person” among “devolving” Democrats.

Well before Biden stood at the cusp of becoming an octogenarian, the public regularly gave witness to his being a walking gaffe machine. Since winning the White House, addled speeches have been compounded with displays of confusion and suspected dementia, but on Friday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight” the host asserted the future of the Democratic Party is on par or worse than the commander-in-chief.
“So obviously, Joe Biden is old and senile,” he began on the “universally acknowledged” point after playing a few clips of the president speaking. “He’s 79 and at that age, sentences, like stairs, become a challenge.”
“We’re not judging, by the way. Anyone who’s passed 50 can feel the loss of acuity if you’re being honest. There comes a day when you realize I’m just not going to be able to finish the Rubik’s Cube this week. The older you get, the less sharp you become,” Carlson went on. “That’s the natural process, or so we have always assumed, but recently we’ve noticed something that changed our view, and that something is called Kamala Harris. Or is it Karmela?” Carlson asked before deciding to use the latter since Harris had done so herself.
“The point is, if you’re not even certain how to pronounce your own first name, you’re likely senile, but here’s the thing, Karmela Harris is only 57 years old. She’s 22 years younger than Joe Biden, young enough to be his daughter, which is to say, young enough to shower with him and too young for most kinds of dementia,” the host added tongue-in-cheek. “So, of course, she’s probably medically in her right mind, and yet, despite that fact, here’s how Karmela Harris actually speaks.”
After a series of clips of Harris’ usual word salad, the host noted, “it turns out that if anything, if we’re being honest, Karmela Harris is even less articulate than the mannequin whose job she wants to take and that’s odd.”
Worse still, among Democrats, the vice president wasn’t an outlier. Carlson went on to contend the party was, “challenging the core premise of Charles Darwin. They’re devolving,” after playing clips of progressives Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. and Senate hopeful John Fetterman and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
“In March of 2021,” the host presented as one example of the Senate candidate lacking cognitive ability prior to him suffering a stroke in 2022, “Fetterman demanded the release of all 1,200 people, all of them, held in prison in Pennsylvania for second-degree murder…Even Joe Biden wouldn’t say that. It’s too stupid.”

“So, it’s hard to avoid the conclusion in the Democratic Party, at least at the leadership level, they’re getting dumber as they get younger and you know this from looking at the party’s future standard bearer, Sandy Cortez,” Carlson leveled.
“Sandy Cortez is even younger than John Fetterman. She’s young enough to be his daughter in fact. She’s 32 and as far as we know, she has not had a stroke,” he continued as he revisited his earlier qualifiers. “Sandy Cortez grew up in a generation that has carried a computer in their pocket since childhood with instant access to every recorded fact in history and then she majored in international relations at the highly prestigious Boston University, which some say is accredited, so she’s had every advantage, and she currently enjoys the greatest advantage of all we thought, which is youth.”
“So, you would imagine that Sandy Cortez would be Churchill in yoga pants,” Carlson presented, “a magician with words and data, a master of linguistics and erudite discourse.”
Instead, she “has devolved to the point where she doesn’t even bother to make political arguments,” the host stated after a clip of Ocasio-Cortez applying makeup while talking about “patriarchy” and “the subjugation of women and queer people.”
“She whines about men as she applies eyeshadow in the ladies’ room just like they do at every restaurant in New York City on a Saturday night and then expects you to support, say, banning passenger cars as a result,” Carlson continued. “So, we make fun of Joe Biden all the time, but even senile old Joe Biden can muster more than that.”
“So once again, how do we explain this?” he asked. “Well in effect, Democrats are challenging the core premise of Charles Darwin. They’re devolving. Our surgeon general,” Carlson said using Vivek Murthy as an example, “just uploaded a picture of himself enjoying an ice cream cone without any ice cream in it. Really?

All of these examples led the host to conclude that Democrats may be stuck with Biden heading into 2024 “because he’s clearly the smartest person in a leadership position at the Democratic Party.”
While he couldn’t announce that as a certainty, Carlson did contend the future of debate from the left would be pure, unintelligible histrionics. “If you no longer respect language (and they don’t), after all you no longer use language (and they won’t) and you’re left with merely a primal scream. Bet on it. That’s coming.”
