Conservative elected officials and media personalities have repeatedly accused President Joe Biden of battling severe mental decline, insisting that he's cognitively unfit to remain serving in the White House. Virtually every flub or misstatement Biden makes in off-the-cuff remarks is broadcast ad nauseam to support this case.
Most recently, far-right Fox News host Sean Hannity devoted much of his Monday night broadcast to Biden's recent trip to Poland, where he delivered a rousing speech in opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin's ongoing siege of Ukraine. In one candid moment, Biden said of Putin, "For God's sake, this man cannot remain in power."
The White House has since insisted that Biden was expressing "moral outrage" at Putin's atrocities, rather than calling for a regime change in Russia.
In a segment detailing a laundry list of grievances with the Biden administration, Hannity said the White House was attempting to clean up Biden's mistake.
Introducing guest and former Republican Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, Hannity said:
"This isn't funny anymore. The world, our allies, our enemies, see what's going on here, and I don't even think he knows that today's Monday."
Gingrich reliably echoed Hannity's criticisms, calling Biden "cognitively challenged" and that the country should be "really worried."
But just minutes later, after Gingrich's segment concluded, Hannity brought on former Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway, accidentally introducing her as "Kellyanne Trump."
"Now, with more reaction, former counsel to the President, Kellyanne Trump."
The gaffe went unnoticed by Hannity, who had just spent the preceding minutes presenting spontaneous comments from Biden as evidence of severe mental decline.
Social media users were quick to pounce on the gaffe.
Some characterized Hannity's introduction as a Freudian slip.
