‘He’s got the nuclear codes’: Bannon dismisses humor over Biden’s perceived cognitive issues

President Joe Biden has gone longer than any sitting president in at least 100 years in not holding a press conference, having gone 44 days in office without taking questions from the media.

Former Trump White House aide Stephen Bannon expressed real concern about this on his “War Room Pandemic” podcast. Saying that Biden “can’t take questions,” he then pointed out that as president, Biden has “the nuclear codes.”

Bannon ran a clip of a White House feed suddenly being cut Wednesday after Biden said he was “happy to take questions” from Democratic lawmakers — the “arrogance” of the administration being seen when they offered no explanation on why.

And while the video footage drew plenty of laughs online, Bannon responded to say,  “It’s not funny, this is serious.”

“That’s the commander in chief, alright. Although I think he’s there illegitimately and illegally, and we can prove that. I don’t care what the media says,” he added.

“He’s got the nuclear codes,” he said of Biden. “Last night, he’s sitting there, clearly looking like he’s not with the program, he says, ‘I’ll take questions, I’m supposed to take questions,’ and boom! Hard stop.”

Raheem Kassam, the former editor-in-chief of Breitbart News London, explained that  Biden was participating in a Zoom call with Democrats.

“I’m deeply concerned that the commander in chief is non compos mentis,” Kassam said.

The men discussed how the Biden White House amounts to little more than “theater” in how the president is portrayed before the American people, noting that even the left-leaning media is beginning to take note of what’s going on.

Case in point, CNN anchor Jake Tapper, who traded in what little credibility he may have had in going all in to defeat Trump, took to Twitter to share how long Biden has now gone without taking questions from reporters.

As for his predecessor, former President Trump took 28 days to take questions from the press, according to Fox News, while former President Barack Obama took 21 days and former President George W. Bush took 34 days.

As the article pointed out, Biden signed an unprecedented number of executive orders, and just ordered airstrikes in Syria. Not to mention the southern border with Mexico is already in crisis mode. So there’s plenty of questions the American people would like to hear answers to.

Last week, during a visit to Texas, a confused Biden struggled mightily to recall the names of officials with him, completely flubbing the name of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, calling her “Shirley.”

Biden has not delivered his State of the Union address and Bannon said recently it’s because he’s not mentally sharp enough and can’t physically stand that long.

“Joe Biden hasn’t given a State of the Union because Joe Biden can’t stand up there and give a State of the Union. That’s what it’s all about,” he said. “Also he won’t draw an audience but he can’t stand up there and do it.”
