Fox News host Sean Hannity just announced on Thursday that he believes President Joe Biden’s cognitive health is declining, calling the president a “shell of his former self,” according to The Washington Examiner.
“Was Joe Biden like this in 2016, 2012?” the Fox News host asked rhetorically. “Because Joe, let’s be honest, was never a particularly bright or smart guy, but what we’re now seeing sadly for him is a hollow shell of his former self,” Hannity said during the opening of his Thursday show.
The primetime host went on to outline the possible dangers of Biden’s condition saying that the president is “a total, complete cognitive mess.”
“What’s really sad is the reality is that if we can all see it, so can America’s enemies, and we have real enemies in Iran, in China, North Korea, Russia.
“Vladimir Putin doesn’t respect or fear Joe Biden. In fact, none of these people do — none of these countries do. He just steamrolled — Vladimir did — Biden, who rubber-stamped Russia’s new pipeline project into Western Europe, into Germany.”
This was just one of Hannity’s complaints about the president, however. The conservative and staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump took verbal exception to Biden not working to put “America first” asserting that the Commander-in-Chief is, in reality, putting Russia first:
“This is what ‘America last’ looks like,” Hannity said. “This was putting Putin first and Russia first. Last week, Russians hacked America’s largest pipeline system, causing massive fuel shortages in 17 states, all along the East Coast, up and down the East Coast. And this week, they were rewarded with their very own pipeline into Germany.”
Hannity is not alone in his opinions, either about Biden’s cognitive function or about his foreign policy. Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND), who proposed a bill to reimpose sanctions on Kremlin-backed Nord Stream 2, told the Washington Examiner, that “Days after Russian hackers successfully attacked an American pipeline, President Biden decided to give Vladimir Putin his own pipeline and hand him a major geopolitical win that cuts right through the NATO alliance.
While Biden’s moves since entering the White House have been suspect in many ways to conservatives, cozying up to Russia should be one of the most talked-about issues on the national media, considering the attention paid to it in the last administration. That, however, doesn’t seem to be the case.
