The Fox News host called Biden’s speech “forgettable” and akin to that of a high school president’s acceptance speech “from a guy who was desperately craving a nap.” He dismissed Biden’s calls for unity as “hollow” and “total and complete BS” and said he spouted “worn-out, liberal socialist cliches.”
But that’s not what really ticked off supporters of the president. It was when Hannity called him “the weak, the frail, the cognitively struggling Biden.” (See the 25:00 mark).
Given how the commander in chief conquered a full day of ceremonies, speeches, signing executive orders and more, those were fighting words.
On #Inauguration night, Hannity referred to POTUS as "the weak, the frail, the cognitively struggling Biden."
Biden's day began at 6am, ended at 12am. He gave 4 speeches, signed 17 EOs, swore-in 1k workers, walked down PA Ave to the WH, and more.

Hannity calls the newly inaugurated president "the weak, the frail, the cognitively struggling Biden" –
Does that match up with the person you watched on TV all day long? Just wondering.

Hannity is like the guy you don’t want to go on a second date with, so he just bad mouths you to his friends. https://t.co/i3vvN6EOfl

Anyone who wants to perpetuate the tired assertion that Biden is not somehow on top of his game is either lazy, misinformed, or both. No one who watched the inauguration could *honestly* come to the conclusion that Biden is “weak, frail, or cognitively struggling.”

Sad and predictable. Apparently Hannity just called Biden "the weak, the frail, the cognitively struggling Biden". Someone just wrote "yeah, but your boy lost to him!"

Cognitively struggling? That was the best inauguration speech I have witnessed in my 49 years. Weak? Running over to people after breaking his foot just a few weeks ago? I couldn’t do that, nor could I walk as well as he did. Frail? Hannity must be speaking about his own ego.
