Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis criticized “senile” President Joe Biden’s handling of classified documents during a new interview with BlazeTV host Mark Levin. The Republican governor also verbalized what everyone is thinking in regards to President Biden’s memory concerns.
Levin began the “Life, Liberty & Levin” interview with DeSantis by highlighting recent mental gaffes committed by Biden. Levin pointed out how Biden confused Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi as “the president of Mexico” during a Thursday press conference where the president was attempting to refute assertions that he is suffering from memory loss.
Speaking about the report from Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Hur that painted Biden as a “well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory,” Levin noted that the report is “damning” for the president.
Levin asked DeSantis, “What do you make of this where a guy like this doesn’t even have to face the issue of whether he should be prosecuted constitutionally, as a sitting president, but on the other hand, they throw everything imaginable Donald Trump, even in the other case, the Klan Act, and the Enron Act and all the rest. What do you make of this?”
DeSantis responded, “Well, I think there’s been a lot of focus, understandably, on the provision saying, ‘Hey, this guy is just too senile to actually stand trial, a jury wouldn’t convict them.'”
DeSantis then said what everyone is thinking about the sitting president having possible cognitive issues.
DeSantis declared, “And I think that that is something that okay, you can’t stand trial, but somehow you can have the nuclear codes? What about invoking the 25th Amendment then, if that’s what it’s going to be? And obviously, that’s going to continue to be a huge political issue.”
“This was willful retention of documents over many decades,” DeSantis hammered Biden. “This was like a pattern in practice when he was a U.S. senator, when he was vice president, when he got out of office.”
“And I think back to the Hillary Clinton case – which you and I both thought, merited prosecution at the time – but you know, Hillary, she set up that server it really wasn’t about classified,” DeSantis explained. “She just didn’t want her communications to be subjected to FOIA because of whatever she was doing – Clinton Foundation, who knows. So she was willing to risk exposure of classified by having this private server.”
DeSantis proclaimed that Biden’s actions with classified documents were more egregious than Hillary Clinton’s private server.
“Biden I think was even more willful. Because he was doing this for a pattern of practice,” the Florida governor stated. “These documents are sprinkled over how many different locations and so clearly, you know, they had the goods if they wanted to go forward and recommend. Now of course, a sitting president, that’s a separate issue, but they’re hanging their hat on the fact that this guy is effectively not mentally competent to stand trial.”
DeSantis concluded, “How pathetic is that for our country? This is the guy that has the nuclear codes.”
