Sean Hannity panned Joe Biden’s Inaugural Address from the United States Capitol Wednesday night; saying the speech sounded like a “student council president” who was “craving a nap.”
“The 75 million Americans who voted for President Trump are not going away… Our conservative values are not going away. Our dedication to the Constitution is not going away,” said Hannity.
“Like it or not, Democrats are now in control of all branches of government. Joe Biden was sworn in. His first address to the nation, Joe meandered his way through an unremarkable, totally forgettable set of remarks,” he added. “This was not in any way a memorable speech. It will not be talked about… Frankly, it’s already forgotten.”
“The Inaugural Address sounded more like an un-inspired high school student council president acceptance speech from a guy who was craving a nap,” Hannity concluded.
