'At times he seems lost, dazed and confused': Hannity asks why Biden's staff prevent him answering questions as he blasts president over Putin summit performance

 Sean Hannity blasted Biden over the summit with Putin and asked why the president's staff are stopping him from answering questions during a segment on Thursday night.

The Fox News host claimed Biden's staff will only allow him to take questions from pre-selected reporters because 'he's not capable of giving a coherent answer' and said the president 'seems totally lost, dazed, and confused.' 

Texas Republican Rep. Ronny Jackson, who served as Donald Trump's White House physician, on Thursday night called for Biden, 78, to take a cognitive test to prove that he was capable of leading the country.

It comes after Biden met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Geneva on Wednesday - a meeting Hannity branded a 'trainwreck' because Biden failed to eke out a single concession or agreement from Putin.

Hannity claimed Biden's aides prevented him from answering questions 'because they hate cleaning up the mess that he makes.' 

'Why are they controlling him? 'I'm going to get in trouble if I take another question. I can't take another question.' Why?', Hannity asked.

'Anyone with common sense knows what's going on here. Joe Biden gets agitated at the drop of a hat, he gets cranky without his warm milky and his sippy cup'.

Biden 'frequently forgets what he is saying midsentence. At times he seems totally lost, dazed, and confused.'  

He added the U.S. needs a 'capable leader not a mumbling, bumbling idiot'.

Biden and Putin held a one-on-one meeting, following by expanded talks including the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and other senior staff.  

Hannity slammed Biden for his performance at the meeting, saying he failed to get a single concession or agreement from Putin. 

'Putin basically gave Joe nothing, the United States nothing. He made not a single concession', he said. 

The pair did go as far as making a joint statement that said the two countries will conduct a dialogue on strategic stability issues and reaffirmed that 'a nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought'.

Hannity slammed both leaders' post-summit press conferences - held separately, in a break with tradition. 

Putin, Hannity said, 'mocked and trashed the U.S. at length' in his solo remarks to the press.   

Putin described Biden as 'very different' from Donald Trump and turned any questions on human rights violations in Russia into attacks on violence in America in the press conference. 

'President Biden is an experienced statesman. He is very different from President Trump,' he said.  

 But, he turned many of the questions into criticism of the United States, including the high levels of gun violence in America. 

'You don't have time to open your mouth and you're shot dead,' he said, referring to mass shootings in the United States.

'Look at American streets. People are getting killed there,' he said. 'You can get a bullet in the neck.' 

And, when asked about human rights violations in Russia, he argued in return the US had 'secret CIA prisons.'

The Russian leader also inspired several Bond villain comparisons after quoting Tolstoy while responding to a questions about growing trust and happiness between him and the U.S. president after their meeting. 

The strongman said: 'There is no happiness in life, only a mirage of it on the horizon, so cherish that.' 

Speaking to Hannity on Thursday night, Rep. Jackson described Biden's performance overseas this week with world leaders as 'embarrassing'. 

'We can't sit on this any longer,' he said. 'He's not physically or cognitively fit to be our president right now.

'I know what the rigors of this job are, physically and cognitively - it's demanding. He's not inspiring confidence. It's sending the wrong message to our adversaries.'  

Ronny Jackson, who served as Donald Trump's personal physician, on Thursday night told Sean Hannity he was deeply concerned about Joe Biden's mental state - declaring that he had been voicing concern for several years

The congressman announced earlier on Thursday that he has sent Biden a letter urging him to take a cognitive test.

Jackson has been circulating the letter with House colleagues and has been able to get the signatures of 13 GOP lawmakers.


The letter cites the president's 'mental decline and forgetfulness', notes several of his 'gaffes', and urges the White House to publish the test results immediately.  

'The American people deserve to have absolute confidence in their president,' it read. 

'They deserve to know that he or she can perform the duties demanded of the office, and they deserve to have full transparency on the mental state of their highest elected leader. 

'I would argue that the American people don't have that confidence in President Biden.' 

Hannity later blasted Biden, saying the president 'gave a short, scripted speech' and claimed the remarks were 'probably written before the summit'.      

He 'took a handful of questions from, as always, preselected reporters, and then got very cranky and lashed out at reporters', Hannity said. 

Republicans have torn into President Biden's performance at his press conference on Wednesday and criticized hearing more about his 'favorite ice cream flavors' than his inability to ask questions. 

Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs told DailyMail.com: 'The media has set such low standards for Biden that we hear more about his favorite ice cream flavors than the fact he is unable to coherently answer basic questions.'

Hannity also criticized the U.S. president for handing Putin a list of 16 key areas which Russia should not try to attack. 

Terming the list a 'roadmap' to hurt the country, Hannity said 'how dumb is it to give a hostile act, an evil guy like Vladimir Putin, 16 specific things, a roadmap that would cripple the USA? That's pretty dumb.' 

'What would stop Putin from going after the other 14 sectors?', Hannity went on. 'All cyberattacks against America and Americans, Joe, that already should be off-limits.' 

He also said the president had failed to rebuke Putin over recent cyberattacks on a U.S. pipeline and meat processing facility, pointedly telling Biden 'you should have lectured him loudly.'  

The Fox News host also lashed out at several media outlets for praising Biden's performance at the summit. 

'They're trying so hard to keep the Biden protection program going,' he said.

'Although, we're starting to see cracks here and there. Even late night comics are starting to realise this guy's not really with us is he.'

Hannity singled out the New York Times and Washington Post, reading headlines that praised Biden for his diplomacy.  

He said the 'fake news' had continued on networks around the country, showing snippets from segments on MSNBC, CNN, and ABC to apparently prove his point, before claiming the shows made him want to throw up.
