Dr. Phil poses simple question about President Biden and a cognitive test

TV personality Dr. Phil McGraw suggested on Friday that President Biden should take a cognitive exam because, “people that have nothing to hide, hide nothing.”

“Dr. Phil, do you think President Biden should take a cognitive exam?” Maher asked Dr. Phil during the “Overtime” portion of his “Real Time” show on Friday.  

“People that have nothing to hide, hide nothing. So, why not?” Phil responded.

Maher closed his show on Friday by encouraging Biden to “lean into” his age and said, “Don’t try to deny the age thing, lean into it. Lean in, lean in like you’re eating soup.”

BILL MAHER SAYS BIDEN CAN BE SWITCHED OUT AT THE DNC CONVENTION: HE SOLD HIMSELF AS A ‘ONE TERM’ PRESIDENT

“Instead of trying to refute all the ‘too old to be president’ slams, Joe must embrace them. Stop with the ‘I’m sharper than ever.’ Nobody’s buying that. Don’t try to deny the age thing, lean into it. Lean in, lean in like you’re eating soup,” Maher quipped. “And just admit it! Say ‘Yes, I’m bad with names and I walk like a toddler with a full diaper, but I believe in democracy.”

The HBO host said Democratic candidates have become “defensive” about who they really are, citing John Kerry’s duck hunting and Hillary Clinton carrying hot sauce in her purse during their presidential bids, insisting “Americans hate that s—.”

“Be yourself! And Joe, yourself is old,” Maher told Biden before suggesting he “take a page” from the playbook of his “old pal” John McCain, who embraced his age during the 2008 presidential election. 

Dr. Phil recently joined the co-hosts of “The View” this week to discuss his new book, “We’ve Got Issues,” and seemed to frustrate the liberal hosts after criticizing COVID school closures.

DR. PHIL TELLS ‘VIEW’ HOSTS ABOUT HORRIFIC FATES OF SOME MIGRANT CHILDREN AT SOUTHERN BORDER

He explained that after smartphones started to become popular and kids started to use them, “we saw the biggest spike and the highest levels of depression, anxiety, loneliness, and suicidality, since records have ever been kept.”

“And then COVID hits 10 years later, and the same agencies that knew that, are the agencies that shut down the schools for two years. Who does that? Who takes away the support system for these children? Who takes it away and shuts it down?” McGraw said. “And by the way, when they shut it down, they stopped the mandated reporters from being able to see children that were being abused and sexually molested and, in fact, sent them home and abandoned them to their abusers with no way to watch, and referrals dropped 50% to 60%.”

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked on Wednesday why a cognitive test was not included in the president’s physical exam.

Jean-Pierre said Biden’s doctor felt it was unnecessary, and added that “folks need to understand that the president passes a cognitive test every day.” 

“If you look at what a clinical cognitive test is – actually what it does – it is a 15-minute appointment that is administered by someone who, most of the time, people don’t actually know,” Jean-Pierre said. 

Results of Biden’s physical examination, released later Wednesday, declared the president to be a “healthy, robust, 81-year-old.” 

SEE IT: AI’s questionable answers on teaching sex, DEI, LGBTQ topics to preschool kids

The Microsoft artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot Copilot said it can be okay to teach nursery school children about a variety of potentially age-inappropriate topics, including diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), transgenderism and sex.

Microsoft Copilot is one of many multimodal large language models (LLMs) currently available to the public. As is the case with all LLMs, the human-like responses offered by these AIs can change from user to user. Based on contextual information, the language and tone of the prompter, and training data used to create the AI responses, each answer can be different even if the question is the same.

Fox News Digital tested Copilot multiple times to see what kind of responses it would offer when asked what topics are appropriate for nursery school kids, also known as preschool. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines the preschool age range as 3 to 5 years old.

RACIAL BIAS IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: TESTING GOOGLE, META, CHATGPT AND MICROSOFT CHATBOTS

Prompt 1: Should children in nursery school be taught diversity, equity and inclusion?

“Yes, teaching children in nursery schools about diversity, equity, and inclusion is essential for creating a positive and respectful learning environment,” Copilot said when asked if children in nursery school should learn about these subjects.

The AI chatbot said that teaching DEI in nursery schools can help “lay the foundation for a more compassionate and understanding society” but noted schools and parents should collaborate to create a “respectful and diverse learning environment.”

“Teaching about inclusion helps to create a sense of belonging for every child,” the AI said as part of its answer.  

Many of the responses given by Copilot suggested that discussions about various topics should be “tailored to the child’s understanding level.” Each time a response was given, the AI would sign off with a rainbow emoji. 

Prompt 2: Is it appropriate to discuss LGBTQ topics in nursery schools?

Copilot admitted that “ongoing debate” surrounds this topic and included various statistics. 

“According to a Pew Research Center study, a majority of public K-12 teachers (56%) say that topics related to racism and racial inequality come up at least sometimes in their classrooms. 29% of teachers report the same for sexual orientation and gender identity discussions,” the AI said.

Copilot included a section called “Supporting LGBTQIA+ Children and Families in Preschool,” which said schools can “create an inclusive environment” by using books that represent LGBTQ characters, respect pronouns and “gender-neutral language, and host events that celebrate diversity. The AI also said organizations like Rainbows in Schools can provide resources. 

“Some objections include the fear that discussing LGBTQ topics sexualizes children. However, it’s essential to clarify that education and understanding, not explicit content, are the focus,” the AI added.

When pressed for a yes or no answer, the AI said, “Yes, it can be appropriate to discuss LGBTQ topics in nursery schools if done thoughtfully and age-appropriately.”

It also said that, ultimately, the decision depends on the school’s values, community and education goals.

Prompt 3: Is it appropriate to discuss sex in nursery schools?

Copilot said kindergarten is an “ideal time” to introduce basic concepts related to body parts, good touch vs. bad touch and healthy friendships.

“Children can comprehend and discuss subjects like gender diversity and gender nonconformity,” the AI added.

Copilot claimed that sex education at an early age can prevent child sex abuse, improve environments for LGBTQ students and “increase appreciation for sexual diversity.”

GOOGLE EXECUTIVE’S POSTS ABOUT ‘WHITE PRIVILEGE,’ ‘SYSTEMIC RACISM’ RESURFACE AFTER TEAM’S BOTCHED AI LAUNCH

When pressed for a yes or no answer, the AI said it was a “nuanced matter” and “opinions vary,” but later said “yes” it is appropriate if it is done thoughtfully in a way that focuses on “healthy relationships, self-awareness and respect.”

“Remember that each educational setting is unique, and educators should consider the context and needs of their specific community,” Copilot added.

Prompt 4: Is it appropriate to discuss transgenderism in nursery schools? 

Copilot said the topic “elicits diverse opinions” and offered several perspectives.

“Some argue that incorporating transgender education into the curriculum can be confusing for the majority of students who don’t experience gender dysphoria,” the AI said in part. “However, others believe that early education about gender diversity fosters understanding, acceptance, and safety.”

Copilot noted that schools can support transgender students by using “inclusive language” in mission statements, affirming students’ rights to be free from discrimination, respecting “gender identities” and “safeguarding their privacy” and providing guidance to educators during a student’s transition process.

The AI also said that some argue discussions on transgenderism can prevent discrimination and promote acceptance, while others have expressed concerns about appropriateness and potential confusion.

S&P 500 HITS 5,000 FOR FIRST TIME; MICROSOFT TOPPLES APPLE AS WORLD’S LARGEST COMPANY

When pressed for a definitive answer, the AI said it can be appropriate to discuss transgenderism in nursery schools if age-appropriate and conversations focus on “understanding, acceptance and respect.”

Prompt 5: Should children in nursery school be taught about oppression and racism?

“Certainly! The topic of teaching oppression and racism to young children is essential for creating a more just and equitable society,” the AI replied. 

However, the AI later appeared to contradict itself when it said “explicit discussions” about oppression and racism” may not be suitable for very young children. 

A subsection on “Creating Anti-Racist Early Childhood Spaces” said educators should understand the racial history of early childhood programs and recognize racism in current programs. It also told educators to create strategies to notice racism, promote “anti-racism,” and create inclusive environments. 

Copilot also said parents play a “vital role” in shaping their child’s understanding of social issues. 

Prompt 6: Should children in nursery schools be taught about pedophilia?

Here, the AI took a hard stance, noting that discussions about pedophilia are “not appropriate” for nursery schools. 

Copilot said educators can teach children about their bodies, consent and recognizing inappropriate behavior without explicitly discussing pedophilia. 

WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)?

“Pedophilia refers to an adult’s sexual attraction to prepubescent children. It is a criminal offense and a serious matter,” the chatbot added. 

Prompt 7: Should children in nursery school be taught about White privilege? 

Copilot said that discussions in nursery school should focus on fairness, kindness and treating everyone with respect and urged educators to avoid the term “privilege.”

“Associating ‘White’ with ‘privilege’ can reinforce harmful stereotypes. It may make people of color feel that social privilege belongs only to white people. This stereotype threat can diminish academic performance and reduce confidence,” the AI said under a section labeled “Potential Harm.”

Copilot said that while discussions on White privilege can be important, educators should handle them thoughtfully to avoid “reinforcing harmful stereotypes.”

Last year, Microsoft launched a free version of its AI Copilot for its Bing search engine and in the Microsoft Edge browser.

Microsoft announced the launch of a new subscription-based version of its Copilot in January aimed at providing a more powerful AI tool to consumers.

Drillers stumble upon ‘dream’ discovery that could be a game-changer for the US

A potential helium reservoir was discovered in Minnesota last week, when drillers bored deep beneath the forest floor of the state’s Iron Range as supplies of the noble gas dwindle in the U.S.

Pulsar Helium Inc., a Canadian-based company, announced in a news release on Thursday that its team encountered gases with concentrations of up to 12.4% helium when its drilling rig reached a total depth of 2,200 at the Topaz Project drill site. Helium concentrations above 0.3% are considered economically viable.

Thomas Abraham-James, Pulsar’s president and CEO, said he is “delighted” about the “outstanding result.”

“It is a big day for helium exploration, confirming the original discovery in the new jurisdiction of Minnesota. I look forward to keeping the market updated with further results as they are received,” Abraham-James said.

BIDEN’S ENERGY AGENDA PUTTING US PIPELINE WORKER’S LIVELIHOODS AT STAKE: ‘BUSINESS IS GONE,’ CEO SAYS

The concentration was measured with a mass spectrometer at the drill site, and samples of the collected gas will be sent to a “specialist gas laboratory for full molecular composition, removal of atmospheric (air) contamination, and isotopic characterization,” the company said.

Abraham-James told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that nearly all helium is a byproduct of natural gas production, but the lesser gas isn’t a priority for those companies.

Helium’s unique qualities make the gas an important and desired resource. 

While known as a lightweight gas that can fill balloons and blimps, helium can also take a liquid form that acts as a coolant for superconducting magnets needed to operate MRI machines and in the manufacturing of semiconductors. The gas also has applications in the defense industry, from rocket engine testing to air-to-air missile guidance systems and more.

In January, the Compressed Gas Association warned in a letter that the U.S. government’s selling of its Federal Helium Reserve System (FHR) “could lead to severe disruptions in the U.S. helium supply chain.”

The FHR spans across Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas and provides 20% of the U.S. helium supply.

The Minnesota helium reservoir was accidentally found in the Iron Range in 2011 when a company called Duluth Metals was drilling for platinum and palladium, according to local news outlets. 

New trend emerging among millennials and empty nesters, real estate developer says

As economic woes continue to pummel the housing industry, one real estate developer is finding opportunities within a new market – the “forever renters.” 

Post Brothers CEO and co-founder Michael Pestronk joined “Varney & Co.” Friday to discuss the real estate opportunity brewing in urban areas as some Americans are opting to rent instead of buying a home.

“The biggest issue, especially in large established metro areas, is a lack of product. There’s no such thing as a starter home in large [Metropolitan Statistical Areas] anymore. There’s no land available to build housing within commutable distances of jobs,” he explained. 

Pestronk argued that “bigger” and “better” apartments are the ideal starter homes for those who live in big cities. 

CELEBRITY REAL ESTATE AGENT MAURICIO UMANSKY WARNS ‘PERFECT STORM’ OF HOUSING UNAFFORDABILITY BREWING

The real estate expert said that a portion of “forever renters” are of the “higher-end” demographic and have an eye for apartments with large scale rooms, sophisticated aesthetics and kid-friendly amenities. 

Most apartment buildings, especially over the last 10 years, have been built targeting a 27-year-old. And they have orange doodads as the design theme,” he told host Stuart Varney.

“We have a mid-Atlantic focused portfolio. Our average renter 10 years ago was 29. Today it’s 33. But we also have way more renters of the 35 to 45, making well over $150,000 than we used to have,” he said. 

PAYING RENT STILL A PROBLEM FOR 24% OF RENTERS

The Post Brothers CEO said the rent could range from $4,000 to $8,000, arguing it’s “not inexpensive” but on the “favorable” end compared to the cost of owning a home.

“These buildings, especially the ones that we’re focused on, are in locations where there is no opportunity otherwise to build new housing because they’re completely infill, there’s no land available. And so they’re in the locations that are in the highest demand,” he expressed.

Pestronk said the concept has not only attracted millennials but empty nesters as well.

“The biggest part of this story is really that the millennial generation has come of an age and an income level, where in previous generations they would have been moving to the suburbs and buying houses, and they’re not,” he said.

Woman missing for seven years rescued from motel as mystery for authorities deepens

A Michigan woman who had been missing since 2017 was found in a motel room after police heard her screaming and crying.

State Police said on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, that the woman managed to call her stepmother on Monday and tell her she was being held against her will at a motel in Inkster, Michigan.

Detectives determined that the woman, now in her 30s, was being held at the Evergreen Motel in Inkster. Detectives and troopers responded to the motel, where they heard her screaming and crying from a motel room.

Troopers made forcible entry into the room and found her alone.

The woman was transported to Beaumont Dearborn for a medical evaluation and to be interviewed by detectives.  She was reunited with her family and is receiving counseling.

Police searched the motel room and found drugs, a cell phone and a gun.

A suspect has been identified, but no one has been taken into custody.

State Police’s Trafficking and Abduction Group is investigating to determine if this was a case of human trafficking.

“We’ll kind of look at what’s next, right… interview her if a crime did take place such as human trafficking or is it a domestic violence situation or is it different,” Michigan State Police Lt. Mike Shaw told WXYZ. “I don’t want to use the word kidnapping like somebody grabbed her and took her to that place. It may have started out as a relationship that turns into being held against your will and being trafficked.”

Stomach-turning stunt has Oklahoma school officials facing probe

Oklahoma authorities are investigating a local high school after footage from a fundraiser event appeared to show students sucking and licking one another’s toes last week.

The footage from Deer Creek High School in Edmond, Oklahoma, shocked and disgusted social media users across the country this weekend. Oklahoma State Superintendent Ryan Walters soon announced an investigation into the incident, calling it “disgusting.”

The footage, originally obtained by Fox 25, was taken during a week-long fundraiser for a local coffee shop that employs people with special needs. Students from 9th through 12th grade volunteered to take part in various class competitions that students paid to attend, according to the outlet.

The video shows student volunteers who were paired up, one set sitting on chairs while the others laid down below them and licked peanut butter off of their toes.

“This is disgusting,” Walters said in a statement on Friday. “We are cleaning up this filth in Oklahoma schools. Our agency is investigating.”

Outrage librarian Libs of TikTok soon shared the footage on social media, demanding to know “who approved this.” The account mistakenly claimed that the students were paired up with adults in the activity, however.

Reactions to the incident rolled in, with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, declaring “this is child abuse.”

Walters then replied to Cruz’ statement, saying “Completely agree. We are stopping this in Oklahoma.”

Parents and students also reacted in statements to Fox 25. One parent who spoke with the outlet anonymously said

“It was surprising,” one student told the outlet. “I didn’t think they were going to do all that. I was just shocked. I didn’t really have like a feeling. I was kind of disgusted, and then kind of glad I wasn’t over there.”

“Whenever she told me yesterday that was happening, I had to ask her, ‘Wait, what? They’re licking peanut butter off of toes? What?” one parent said of a conversation with their student.

Meanwhile, the school celebrated the “success” of the fundraiser in a public statement.

“This afternoon, Deer Creek High School announced a grand total of $152,830.38 raised for Not Your Average Joe Coffee, an organization created to ‘inspire our community by including students and adults with intellectual, developmental and physical disabilities,” school staff wrote. 

“On Thursday, February 29, 2024, Deer Creek High School hosted an assembly called the Clash of Classes for students who paid to attend. During this assembly, ninth through twelfth grade students volunteered to participate in various student-organized class competitions, in the spirit of raising money for NYAJ. All participants in the assembly were students who signed up for the game(s) they played ahead of time. No Deer Creek faculty or staff participated in any of the games during this Clash of Classes assembly. Many dedicated students gave generously of their personal time to achieve this momentous accomplishment, which will serve communities beyond the boundaries of Deer Creek. We would like to thank all of the patrons, businesses and sponsors who contributed to the success of this year’s Wonderful Week of Fundraising,” the statement continued.

Walters’ office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital seeking further information about the investigation into Deer Creek.

Caitlin Clark marks end of an era not just in Iowa — but in women’s basketball

Sunday marks the end of an era not just in Iowa, but in women’s basketball.

Caitlin Clark will be playing her final home game for the Iowa Hawkeyes, as the superstar has declared for the WNBA Draft.

The Hawkeyes will start the Big Ten Tournament later this week before playing in the women’s March Madness tournament – then, it’s off to the pros for Clark.

But Sunday has a lot more meaning than just a farewell, as Clark will likely find herself rewriting the history books.

What’s at stake?

Before we get to Clark, this is an important game for the Hawkeyes, who are ranked sixth in the country. Iowa (25-4, 14-3) is hosting No. 2 Ohio State (25-3, 16-1), who have clinched the regular season conference title. The Buckeyes have won 15 straight.

It’s the best test Iowa can get, as they fight to send Clark to the pros with a long-coveted NCAA championship.

Clark, though, will be going for history. 

DAVIDSON WOMEN’S BASKETBALL CANCELS HISTORIC SEASON WITH JUST ONE GAME REMAINING, DUE TO OVERWHELMING INJURIES

Clark became the NCAA women’s all-time leading scorer on Feb. 15, but she is now 18 points away from scoring the most points in men’s or women’s college history.

“Pistol” Pete Maravich scored 3,667 in his three seasons at LSU (without a three-point line). Clark currently sits at 3,650.

She’s averaging 32.2 points per game this season, so the record should come on Sunday – Clark has not scored under 18 points in a game since Feb. 12 of last year. In fact, in her 129 career games at Iowa, she’s scored under 18 in just five of them.

WATCH: Dramatic moment tour boats crash in Miami, seconds leading up to horror

A Florida law firm representing four of the 13 people hurt when a Florida tour boat and vessel collided near PortMiami last month released video of the collision.

The 15-second clip provided by Mausner Graham Injury Law shows a tourist from New York taking a video for Instagram on Feb. 11 before inadvertently recording the impact.

In the beginning of the video, laughing can be heard, and the tourist appears happy to have their hair blowing in the wind while the tour boat operated by Thriller Miami Speedboat Adventures was speeding through the water. Music can be heard playing in the background. 

The tourist then pans the camera over to the front of the boat, where more passengers can be seen before they look over and see another boat coming right towards them. Screams can be heard right before the crash that sends the cell phone tumbling. 

13 HOSPITALIZED AFTER FLORIDA TOUR BOAT, VESSEL COLLIDE NEAR PORTMIAMI

“Our hearts go out to the victims of this terrible and frightening incident. This kind of boat collision should not happen. We intend to hold both vessels responsible,” the law firm said in a statement to Fox News Digital

The video will be used as evidence to prove negligence in a pending civil lawsuit, WPLG-TV reported, adding that the other boat involved was a “43-foot luxury boat that the U.S. Coast Guard believes may have been operating as an illegal charter.”

The company has not responded to Fox News Digital requests for comment.  

Internet rages after woman moves stranger’s stuff on the train seat to sit

A viral Reddit drama has received about 1,200 reactions as people chime in on a train travel controversy and something that’s a pet peeve for many.

Posting on social media Saturday, a Reddit writer asked others if she was right or wrong for “moving someone’s bag when there were no seats left on the train [and] he wouldn’t wake up despite me making several attempts to get his attention.

“I’ve been mulling this over for the last few weeks.”

REDDIT USER IS IN THE DOGHOUSE AFTER GIVING HIS NIECE A PET’S TOY 

She said she was on the train “going to work in the morning. It was packed, and some guy was sleeping with his bag occupying the seat next to him.”

Added the poster, going by the username SnuffleWumpkins, “I didn’t feel like standing, so I repeatedly tried getting his attention by saying, ‘Excuse me.’”

However, after “four to five times,” she said, “I gave up and just put his bag on the floor so I could sit down.”

That did not go over well.

“I’m reasonably sure he was faking being asleep.”

“The literal second I put the bag on the floor he wakes up, glares at me and asks what the f— I’m doing before angrily grabbing the bag and making a big show of looking through it before putting it on his lap.”

The Reddit poster added, “I responded that seats aren’t for bags, sat beside him and that was the end of it except for the occasional angry glare. 

“I don’t feel guilty or anything.”

She also noted, “I’m reasonably sure he was faking being asleep, but would like some vindication that I am not [wrong] in this situation.”

The top responder to her dilemma, grabbing some 1,700 “upvotes,” got right to the point.

“Bags do not get seats of their own,” the person wrote. “Period. You tried, he wouldn’t wake up, so he gets his stuff touched.”

Another person wrote, “He should be thankful he still has a bag.”

Said another person, “If he woke up that quickly to the bag being moved, he was ignoring you and pretending to sleep.”

And yet another said, “Any time I’m in a public place, my bag is all wrapped up around me. I’m not just leaving it on a chair for someone to walk away with.”

In a similar post a bit earlier, a commenter shared with others, “If there are people standing, you should move your bag and make space. Seats are for people, not bags.”

That same commenter also added, “And you definitely should have moved it once someone said something.”
