During a recent segment on Fox News’s “The Five,” co-host Jessica Tarlov found herself defending President Joe Biden’s fitness for the job amidst criticism from her fellow co-hosts regarding a recent Axios article that detailed White House efforts to prevent Biden from tripping or stumbling.

In a strategic pivot, Tarlov shifted the conversation towards a comparison between Biden and former President Donald Trump, highlighting what she referred to as Trump’s recent “cognitive lapses.”

Tarlov kicked off her argument by drawing attention to the Axios piece’s discussion of Biden’s choice of sneakers and mentioned that Fox News’ Peter Doocy had also worn the same sneakers, suggesting their popularity on Capitol Hill.

She further pointed to a recent comment made by Doocy during an overseas trip, in which he asserted that Biden maintained a full schedule, countering claims regarding the President’s work ethic.

As the discussion progressed, Tarlov underscored the improved global perception of the United States since Biden’s inauguration. When confronted by Jeanine Pirro, Tarlov pushed back by listing some of what she deemed as Trump’s cognitive errors over the past ten days.

These included statements about needing identification to purchase bread, running against Obama in 2016, erroneously referencing World War Two, confusing Jeb Bush with George W. Bush, and making authoritarian comments on the social media platform Truth Social.

Tarlov’s aim was to draw a parallel between Biden and Trump, highlighting that both presidents had made verbal slip-ups but arguing that Trump’s remarks were equally or even more concerning.

The discussion concluded with co-host Martha MacCallum suggesting that this comparison might be the lens through which people assess the fitness of Trump and Biden for the presidency.

“SO PART OF THE CORE OF THE AXIOS PIECE WAS ABOUT THE SNEAKERS, THAT HE’D SWITCHED TO SNEAKERS,” TARLOV BEGAN, ADDING:

AND THEN OUR VERY OWN PETER DOOCY IS ON FOX AND FRIENDS THIS MORNING WEARING THE SAME SNEAKERS THAT JOE BIDEN WORE. AND HE SAID EVERYONE ON CAPITOL HILL FROM AGE 36 TO 80 IS WEARING THESE SNEAKERS.

“WE WORRY ABOUT PETER DOOCY FALLING DOWN TOO,” JESTED GUEST CO-HOST MARTHA MACCALLUM.

“PETER DOOCY ALSO WHEN THEY WERE ON THEIR LATEST OVERSEAS TRIP WAS TALKING ABOUT BIDEN’S SCHEDULE. REMEMBER WHEN BIDEN SAID, ‘I GOT TO, YOU KNOW, I’M GOING TO GO TAKE A NAP AND IT’S LATE.’ AND PETER SAID THAT HE WAS WORKING INTO THE WEE HOURS OF THE NIGHT. HE SAID HE’S HELD A COMPLETE SCHEDULE,” TARLOV CONTINUED, REFERENCING A COMMENT MANY ON THE RIGHT USED TO CRITICIZE BIDEN’S FITNESS TO BE PRESIDENT.

“AND OUR PERCEPTION AROUND THE WORLD, BY THE WAY, IS UP SINCE BIDEN CAME INTO THE PRESIDENCY,” TARLOV CONTINUED.

“BASED ON WHAT?” DEMANDED JEANINE PIRRO.

“BASED ON WHAT OTHER WORLD LEADERS AND PEOPLE IN OTHER COUNTRIES THINK OF AMERICA,” TARLOV SHOT BACK ADDING:

BUT YOU SAID, OKAY, YOU DON’T NEED TO WATCH HIM. LET’S JUST HEAR WHAT COMES OUT OF HIS MOUTH.

AND I PUT TOGETHER SOME OF TRUMP’S LATEST COGNITIVE BEAUTIES FROM THE LAST TEN DAYS. HE SAID, YOU NEED AN I.D. TO BUY BREAD. HAS ANYONE SHOWN ID TO GET WONDER BREAD LATELY? HE SAID THAT HE RAN AGAINST OBAMA IN 2016. HE RAN AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON. HE WARNED THAT BIDEN WILL GET US INTO WORLD WAR TWO, WHICH I’M PRETTY SURE WE ALREADY FOUGHT AND WON. AND YESTERDAY, HE CONFUSED JEB BUSH AND GEORGE W BUSH AND SAID JEB GOT US INVOLVED IN THE MIDDLE EAST. AND THEN, OF COURSE, THERE ARE HIS AUTHORITARIAN POSTS ON TRUE SOCIAL CALLING FOR THE CHAIR OF THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF TO BE EXECUTED AND SAYING THAT HE’S GOING TO INVESTIGATE MEDIA COMPANIES THAT HE DOES NOT LIKE. CAN YOU IMAGINE IF BIDEN SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT, I’M GOING TO LOOK INTO THAT FOX NEWS? THEY DON’T SEEM TO LIKE ME OVER THERE.

“THIS MAY BE THE CHOICE THAT PEOPLE HAVE. TRUMP VERSUS BIDEN LAID BARE HERE,
