Popular Fox News host Dan Bongino got some big news after it was revealed his show reigned supreme in the ratings. A new report from Ad Week found that Bongino’s show on Saturday night was the most-watched primetime show in all of cable news.
In the 9 p.m. ET time slot, Bongino racked up 1.19 million total viewers. In the same time slot, CNN had 219,000 and MSNBC secured 315,000 total viewers. In the 8 p.m. ET time slot, Fox News host Brian Kilmeade received 1.06 million total viewers. CNN secured 282,000 total viewers and MSNBC has 282,000 in that same slot.
Bongino made headlines last month when he tore into President Joe Biden and Democrats for depicting a “prettier picture” than the status of the nation’s reality.
During an episode on “Unfiltered with Dan Bongino,” the host wasted no time slamming Biden and arguing that he lives in an “alternate universe.”
“There’s multiple universes there too, in the Biden White House. These guys are full of crap all the time. There’s the real universe and there’s the full-of-crap universe. That’s the Biden universe. Real, full of crap; real, full of crap. So they’re full of crap on inflation. You ever see this guy Biden? He’s always chatting about inflation as if he did something to stop it with the Inflation Reduction Act or whatever. So he gives a speech today talking about how Republicans, if they get in office, are going to make inflation worse, which is really weird because inflation was 1.2% year over year before this guy took office,” Bongino said.
“It’s now seven points higher. Does he ever tell the truth? The Wall Street Journal covered this. And then he said, ‘You know, we had to print a whole bunch of money to inflate and inflate away the dollar.’ Why? ‘Because the economy needed help.’ Actually, that’s not right either, there, Joe B. The economy was growing at about 6% GDP annualized before you got in office, and now we’re shrinking,” he added.
Bongino recently revealed that his sources in the Secret Service have told him that Biden’s mental state is deteriorating to the point that is more than just a little problematic.
“Not a joke and not hyperbole – I’m hearing from people close to the situation that Biden’s cognitive decline is rapidly worsening and is becoming increasingly difficult to mask. The Democrats are going to have to make a decision soon,” Bongino said.
Bongino said it gave him “no joy in saying this and I mean that: [Biden] is in real significant trouble. And listen to me — everyone around him, everyone knows it. Everyone knows it. This is the scandal — that they’re not telling you how bad his condition is.”
“It’s not a mystery. It’s the worst-kept secret in the White House,” Bongino added.
The former White House doctor who served for both former President Obama and for Donald Trump has also warned about Biden.
Texas Republican Representative Ronny Jackson said that he believes Biden is suffering a cognitive decline and should be tested immediately.
“I think he’s demonstrating every single day that there is something going on,” he said.
“You don’t need to be a physician to look at this behavior and see there’s something concerning happening,” he said. “He’s just not aging gracefully at this point.”
“You can go back – there are forty years of tape of this man – he’s always made gaffes and stuff but these are different, he’s confused, he’s disoriented,” he said.
“We all know people who are 100 years old, who basically are as sharp as a tack, and we know people who are in their mid-60s that having some cognitive difficulties…and I think he’s on that end of the spectrum,” he said.
“I’m just asking them when you do the physical exam including the cognitive assessment,” the representative said. “As far as I’m concerned the standard precedent has been set and they need to follow and do the same.”
“The far left and the mainstream media were demanding that be the new standard for anybody who’s going to lead our country and be our Commander-in-Chief and our head of state,” he said. “I’m just saying I agree with them at this point — we need to get it done.”
