Sky News host Cory Bernardi took out a segment on his program to say that US President Joe Biden is "struggling with dementia" and is not up to the task that he has been "sworn in to do." While Bernardi's segment is being lauded by Biden detractors, many have taken to social media to point out the former Australian senator's controversial views, with some comparing him to American right-wing personalities.
Bernardi is a former Australian politician, who served as Senator for South Australia from 2006 to 2020 and was the leader of the Australian Conservatives, a minor political party he founded in 2017 but disbanded in 2019. He resigned from politics in 2020 and is currently a news show host at Sky News Australia.
In a recent , Bernardi spoke about how he believed Biden has dementia. He said that it was "apparent to me during the election campaign, but such was the hatred for Donald Trump by the partisan and poisonous mainstream media, they chose not to highlight anything that might have derailed a Biden victory."
