State of the Union

A TALE OF TWO SPEECHES: MSNBC Thinks Joe Did Great, Fox Isn't So Sure

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.08.23

How did the State of the Union go for Joe? Well, it depends on who you ask.

While it was undeniable that Biden bungled his way through 73 minutes of screaming and half-truths, the folks over at MSNBC seem to think that Biden rose to the occasion, proving that his age isn’t a factor at all when discussing a potential re-election bid.

Joy Reid provided her unique (and often wrong) brand of analysis.

“There’s a lot of anxiety in the Democratic political world about Biden’s age. He shattered that tonight … even Kevin McCarthy, who’s been around a long time, but is obviously not as ready for primetime as Joe Biden.”

Over at Fox News, commentator Brit Hume was a bit more concerned with Biden’s inability to form coherent sentences with 100% accuracy, saying “It seemed to me there was an awful lot of stumbling and slurring.”

“The other way is looking at this man, this 80-year-old man, the oldest president I guess ever, and whether he got through the speech well,” Hume continued. “It seemed to me there was an awful lot of stumbling and slurring and words left out and so on. So the question becomes this: does someone sitting at home worried about the future of our country — perhaps suffering from inflation and the other maladies, worried about crime, worried about the border — look at this man delivering this speech tonight and say, ‘I have confidence to give him four more years. He’s the man who’s led our nation so well, he’s fully in command’?”

“Or do they have doubts?” he concluded. “Doubts that they may already harbor based on Afghanistan and certain other things. I have considerable doubt as to whether this was a confidence-inspiring speech tonight.”
