FOX presenter Sean Hannity condemned Joe Biden’s press conference as “ shameful ” and said the country should start asking “ who’s in charge ” in the White House because he “ definitely ” isn’t him.
Biden, 78, relied on cue cards on Thursday for his first press conference. They include talking points and headshots of the reporters he wanted to raise for questions.
None of the reporters asked him about COVID-19, nor did they ask about tax increases.
Hannity said on his late-night show that the whole spectacle was troubling and that the “enemies of America are watching.”
‘It was like watching a train wreck in slow motion. Despite weeks of preparation, even fake news CNN admits it, cheat sheets with a 14-point font and a compliant media mob lobbying one soft ball question after another …

“The brittle, the frail, the cognitively struggling commander in chief, or is he, didn’t do well today, to say the least,” Hannity said.
He showed a snippet of some of Biden’s comments during the press conference, saying, “ His long, crawling answers, his confusion … he became dazed and confused. He stopped halfway through a sentence and stared straight ahead. Stared off into the distance.
“This is your president.”
Hannity continued, “Our enemies are watching, this is embarrassing.
Have you ever seen a US president rely on a book of cheat sheets? To ever answer a simple question at a press conference? It is pathetic. It’s humbling.
And let’s be clear, the compliant media crowd wasn’t exactly throwing Joe hard balls. They were incredibly polite and nice.
A capable president shouldn’t spend days preparing to answer a few simple questions. This is the hardest job in the world. An impressive, 24/7 job.
Ask yourself if, in your opinion – the American people – Joe can do well even at a press conference?
What is he capable of after days of practice? Something?
Biden used cue cards at his press conference on Thursday to remind him of talking points
Because, frankly, we really need to ask who’s running the show at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? Is it Vice President Harris? Is it Chief of Staff Ron Klain? Is it Schumer? Is it Pelosi? Is Barack Obama? Is it Susan Rice?
Because it’s certainly not the brittle, the frail, and the cognitively struggling man we’ve all seen today.
If Joe Biden isn’t able to get the job done, he shouldn’t have the job. There is so much at stake. And our enemies are watching. ‘
Trump called FOX from home after watching the press conference. He denounced the press for their ‘soft ball questions’.
FOX News reporter Peter Doocy called out Biden for not taking questions from him at the press conference, saying he had “a folder full of questions” to put to the president.
“We had a lot and most things we did not reach,” said Doocy in the broadcast after the press conference.
“Nobody asked him about this big plan he has, this big idea to completely transform the economy to make everything green,” Doocy continued.
Hannity said Biden seemed “dazed and confused” during the press conference
“We hoped to get that on the board and there weren’t many questions about Covid, particularly the research into its origins,” he added.
Later in the show, Hannity tore Seth Meyers apart, calling him a ‘hypocrite a ******’ after the Late Night presenter called him a ‘sociopath’, sparking a feud between the TV presenters.
‘You want to call me sociopathic, as you have mentioned many others, like Trump and Karl Rove. You use the word often, ”Hannity said on Thursday.
“But you’re just another limo, liberal socialist, hypocritical a ****** who does nothing but spew out anti-GOP hatred and has virtually nothing positive or productive to add to political dialogue.”
