Every time President Joe Biden is forced to actually appear in public to address the nation, rumors of increasingly declining mental health explode. Fox News host Sean Hannity claims the White House is trying to buy time for the “cognitively struggling” President Joe Biden.
During his popular nightly program, Hannity asked,
What is going on with the president of the United States, Joe Biden? Seriously. What is wrong? The American people deserve answers. He barely has any public events. His vice president, Kamala Harris, is taking solo calls with world leaders. That would be the commander-in-chief’s job.
Hannity also contrasted the habits of Biden and former President Donald Trump. He claimed Biden often goes to bed early, while Trump worked until the early morning hours.
The criticism follows White House press secretary Jen Psaki dodging reporters when she was asked when Biden would give his first solo press conference. The president is expected to speak Thursday with an update regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Fox News host added Democrats are in a difficult situation due to Biden’s cognitive decline:
every single Democrat needs to be asked, do they see Joe struggling cognitively? It is a legitimate question. It’s a question that Democrats and the media mob had no trouble asking about Ronald Reagan in 1984 …
they had no problem raising these issues with John McCain when he was running in 2008 … The guy now fast asleep at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, that’s not the same guy I remember just four short years ago.
In contrast, Dr. Kevin O’Connor of The George Washington University released a summary of Biden’s health on Tuesday. The report stated Biden is a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old male, who is fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency to include those as Chief Executive, Head of State and Commander in Chief.”
Americans will more likely decide Biden’s health status from what they see, or don’t see, of the president on screen in the days ahead. Recently, what has been witnessed has led to more concerns than confidence.
