Megyn Kelly's guest Ben Shapiro criticized Joe Biden's disastrous press conference on the Justice Department's report on his handling of classified documents.

A guest on Megyn Kelly’s show compared Biden’s disastrous press conference to the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger.

Ben Shapiro called the president’s appearance Thursday “the worst press conference I’ve ever seen.”

His comments came a day after Biden’s gaffe-filled speech to the nation about the Justice Department’s report on his handling of classified documents.

His tirade included a series of blunders, including referring to the Egyptian leader as president of Mexico after angrily insisting that “memory is fine.”

“That was the explosion of Challenger press conferences. “It really was by far the worst press conference I’ve ever seen in my life,” Shapiro said.

The heated exchange with reporters left Biden enraged by the report’s conclusions, as well as confusing the presidents of Egypt and Mexico.

The Challenger disaster was one of the deadliest in US spaceflight history, killing seven crew members aboard the shuttle when it exploded during takeoff on January 28, 1986.

The cause of the spacecraft’s disintegration was the failure of a joint in the shuttle’s thrusters, which occurred due to record low temperatures on the morning of launch.

“I’ve been watching this stuff for over 20 years and obviously I’ve seen a lot of tapes. That was horrible,” Shapiro added.

“Not only was it horrendous, but it was on purpose, which means he didn’t have to give the press conference last night.”

Special counsel Robert Hur’s report confirmed that Biden would not be charged for storing classified documents in his garage.

But he said that was because a jury would likely conclude that he had “diminished faculties” and was an “older, well-intentioned man with a poor memory.”

At a hastily arranged press conference, an agitated Biden insisted: ‘I know what I’m doing! My memory hasn’t gotten any worse. My memory is fine. Take a look at what I’ve done since becoming president.”

‘No one thought any of the things I went through could happen. How did that happen? I guess I just forgot what was going on.

His comments drew scorn from Shapiro, editor of the Daily Wire.

President Biden went after reporters and criticized special counsel Robert Hur for attacking his memory in his report announcing the decision not to charge him over his handling of classified documents.

‘The sole objective of the press was to deter the Americans, the special prosecutor was right about their state of mind and their mental acuity. He doesn’t look like he knows what he’s doing,” Shapiro added.

‘It starts off hot for maybe a minute and a half… What a complete disaster zone for the president. And frankly, it’s hard to see how he survives this.

Basically, the media now has options. We need to openly report what is happening. And every day, until the election, there will be questions about his mental state.’

Biden was particularly upset by Hur’s inclusion of the claim that he could not remember the moment of his son Beau’s death.

‘There are even references that I don’t remember when my son died. How the hell dare you bring that up? “I don’t need anyone, I don’t need anyone, to remind me when he passed away,” the president fumed.

“Frankly, when they asked me the question, I thought, it was none of their business.”

He also said reports of his “intentional” withholding of documents were “misleading.”

At one point he shouted: ‘I didn’t share classified information! I did not!’

Shapiro went on a rampage in Friday night’s segment, calling the press conference “horrendous” and the worst he had seen in 20 years.

The Challenger space explosion in 1986 was one of the deadliest in American aerospace history, killing all seven crew members on board.

Biden then answered a question about the humanitarian situation in Gaza.

In doing so, he failed to identify a world leader, calling the Egyptian Abdel Fattah El-Sisi president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

The only question is whether the Democratic Party is as convinced that it can defeat Donald Trump, literally, as a person who is not mentally prepared, but decides to stick with him instead of throwing him overboard, or whether

It just happens that Joe Biden picks the best presidential lock anyone has ever picked by making Kamala Harris his vice president…
