AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): So, Dr. Siegel, I know you're a medical doctor, so you wanted to talk to him about the virus. But did he discuss the election or anything else?

DR. MARC SIEGEL (FOX NEWS MEDICAL CONTRIBUTOR): Well, you know, he discussed the issue of his own clarity of vision. And I did — in a sense, that interview was a cognitive test, Ainsley. I have to tell you, as you know, he is extremely sharp on every second. And he did a test on TV where he basically, you know, went through how great his memory is.

And what he said was, even all of the major leaders of the world, Ainsley — he talked about Putin, he talked about Chairman Xi — he said, whatever you think of them, they're extremely sharp, and we need a leader that has that level of awareness and sharpness. And that applies to the election.
