EMPTY CHAMBER: Just 200 People to Attend Biden Speech Due to CoVID Regulations

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.28.21

From Fox News:

Seating for President Biden’s first joint address to Congress will be very limited Wednesday night, so many lawmakers will be skipping the event.

Instead of 1,600 people crowded into a House chamber for a regular State of the Union address, just 200 people will be attending Biden’s first marquee event before Congress, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday.

Some lawmakers have balked at the coronavirus restrictions and social distancing mandates put in place, especially since the 535 members of Congress have long had access to vaccinations.

Meanwhile, other GOP lawmakers are frustrated that Pelosi invited Biden to speak when the House was out of session and they already made plans for events in their home districts.

Sens. Tom Cotton, R-Ark.; Josh Hawley, R-Mo., and Marco Rubio, R-Fla., are among the GOP senators who will not be attending.

Cotton and Hawley said they are deferring to the more senior members of the Senate given the limited space constraints, whereas Rubio also raised concerns about the coronavirus rules.

“I will not be attending, and one of the reasons why is the ticket numbers have been really limited; they’re making people sit in the gallery,” Rubio told “Fox and Friends” Tuesday.

The Florida senator also called out inconsistencies with the enforcement of coronavirus restrictions at the Capitol, dubbing it “silly season.”

“It’s interesting — when it came to coming together to impeach Donald Trump for the second time after he was out of office, they put 100 senators in the same room sitting just inches apart for hours at a time over five or six days,” Rubio said. “Apparently COVID was not an issue then. But now, of course, for something like this we can’t have that many people in the room sitting next to each other. So it’s kind of silly season here.”

BIDEN in NEW HAMPSHIRE: ‘What You Do Here in Iowa is Going to Set the Tone’

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.09.19

Former Vice President Joe Biden left audience members scratching their heads in New Hampshire over the weekend; confusing the northeast state for Iowa -approximately 1,000 miles away.

“The primary race for the United States presidency… You have an incredible obligation, not to me at all, but to yourselves. What you do here in Iowa […] is going to set the tone,” said Biden before correcting himself.

“New Hampshire, the primary in New Hampshire,” he added.

Biden made a similar mistake earlier this year; confusing New Hampshire for the neighboring state of Vermont.

“I’ve been here a number of times…I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it?” Biden told reporters.

BIDEN in MISSOURI: ‘We Cannot Get Re-Elected… Excuse Me… We Can Only Re-Elect Donald Trump’

Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-filled campaign over the weekend in Missouri; telling a crowd of confused supporters he “cannot get re-elected” but can “only re-elect Donald Trump.”

“Turn this primary from a campaign that’s about negative attacks into one about moving forward. Because we cannot get re-elected… Cannot win this re-election… Excuse me… we can only re-elect Donald Trump,” Biden told the bewildered audience.

 

Fox News host Sean Hannity called out his network colleague on social media over the weekend over his coverage of Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden; saying a candidate’s “mental toughness” to hold office is “critical” during the 2020 election.

“I always criticize liberal commentators for saying things like ‘President Trump is mentally ill’ and ‘President Trump has psychosis and he’s narcissistic and all that,’ so I do think it was unfortunate that some commentators on Super Tuesday — Brit Hume, Marc Thiessen, people I respect — said Joe Biden is senile or getting there,” said ‘Media Buzz’ host Howie Kurtz.

“Certainly he’s forgetful with his memory lapses and you can question his performance,” he added.

“Howie you host a ‘media’ show. Please feel free to report on any of the topics I just mentioned : Quid pro quo Joe Ukraine shake down, media mob ignoring zero experience Hunter, media ignoring Joe’s gaffes, etc. No charge for the ideas,” fired-back Hannity on social media.

“Howie, being the President of the United States of America is the Hardest job in the world. Whether any candidate has the physical strength, the stamina, the focus and mental toughness needed to do this job is critical,” he added.
