That is how it goes:
“But at no point, having known Joe Biden for some time, does he have the energy of Donald Trump. We both know it. Donald Trump didn’t have to sleep five hours a night” – Kevin McCarthy to Hannity pic. twitter.com/LKSKLUoC8E

HANNITY: “What observations did you see regarding the President? Did he seem engaged, did he have high levels of energy? You were near Donald Trump, you were near Joe Biden. What’s the difference between the two men? “
MCCARTHY: “It was the first time I’ve seen Joe Biden as president since he … I saw him on the opening night and the State of the Union night. He was there and he was engaged and he gave me numbers and he spoke but at no point, having known Joe Biden for a while, does he have the energy of Donald Trump. We both know. Donald Trump didn’t have to sleep five hours a night and he would be engaged. If you called Donald Trump, he would be on the phone in front of the staff. He would … topple other people. “
Okay, first of all, McCarthy’s and Elise Stefanik’s smiles haunt me because I know I’ve seen them somewhere before. They are just … well … family …
Second, perhaps someone who thought it was a good idea to brag about a test they only take on people with early signs of dementia should consider getting a full eight hours of sleep each night. Just a thought.
Eventually, Hannity’s heartfelt hope that sometime around 4 a.m. on a random Wednesday morning Joe Biden will be found at the Lincoln Memorial with a dead raccoon on Abe’s lap leads him to ask absurd key questions about our president. And since everyone can see that Biden is clearly not senile or lacks focus or energy, McCarthy couldn’t even disprove a decent lie about it. But he did the next best thing: imagine if Donald Trump, who at this point is 90% chicken skin and Adderall, has way more strength than Biden could ever muster. (Um, just because someone yells for a Diet Coke 22 times a day doesn’t mean they have “energy,” and it certainly doesn’t show that that energy is being used productively.)
I mean, all you have to do is read these New York Times exhibitionsIt is about Joe Biden working hard, telling his people to work hard and take his job seriously – a piece they somehow decided to headline, “Under Joe Biden’s folk demeanor, a short fuse, and an obsession with detail “To begin with – to know that the narrative Hannity and his husband are trying to make us all swallow, that’s just a big, uncomfortable horse pill of a placebo.
Check this out:
However, some people familiar with the president’s decision-making style said Mr Biden was quick to cut talks. Three people who work closely with him said he occasionally even docks someone he thinks is wasting his time. Most described Mr. Biden as not very patient with consultants who were unable to answer his many questions.
“You are so hyper-prepared,” said Dylan Loewe, a former speechwriter for Mr. Biden. “‘I have to answer every question he can ask.'”
Oh gawd what a bloody nightmare! A president who tries to understand all facets of his job and demands of his people to be “hyper-prepared”! Does that mean we stopped getting a medical quack from our POTUS?
Of course, I’ve read the entire Times hit track, “Biden’s Too On purpose,” but I could have just read that part and slept soundly last night:
An item that is not on the agenda?
Watch hours of cable news. The TV that Mr. Trump installed in the dining room next to the Oval Office is still there, but helpers say it is seldom turned on during the day.
Yup. It takes a lot of energy to watch 10 hours of Teevee a day – and even more to translate Brian Kilmeade’s Blather into something reminiscent of English. Donald Trump is a real energizer bunny. If that reference is too old, replace something newer like “Don Jr. Midnight Cocaine Rabbit”.
The three spooges also did their best to convince Hannity’s audience that the country is falling apart now that Trump is no longer screwing up the pandemic response. The fact that we are emerging from yet another ruinous Republican recession made worse by Trump’s no-government philosophy seems to be lost to them. Instead, they focused on a temporary decline in inflation, likely caused by pandemic-induced supply shortages and a slowdown in oil pipeline deliveries triggered by a one-off ransomware attack that was already being wound up. Somehow they forgot to mention the massive SolarWinds hack that took place under Trump’s watch.
They also claimed that the CDC’s change of mask management was just a ploy to distract the country from all of these “disasters.”
