During the interview that aired on Monday, Fox News’ Sean Hannity confronted Newsom on if Biden is capable of being President of the United States, “Is Joe Biden up to the job of being president? And as a little reminder, take a look at your president in the monitor.”
A compilation video, that lasted more than a minute, was then played. The chyron also read “BIDEN’S EMBARRASSING STRUGGLES.”
“By the way, I met with the– who are those guys who fly over shortly? You’ve heard of them, have you?” Biden is heard saying in one clip.
The president’s gaffes of mispronouncing names and admitting he is not sure of the last place he was are also shown.
Hannity did not stop there.
“And then you’ve got Joe Biden who’s having a hard time standing up. Take a look at that one,” the host said, before a clip played of Biden falling on stage during the commencement ceremony at the U.S. Air Force Academy.
Watch the video below:
Sean Hannity shows California Gov. Gavin Newsom 90 seconds of Biden's "struggles," then asks him if Biden is "cognitively strong enough to lead this country against China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and a new axis of evil."

Hannity then confronted Newsom, “I want you to tell me that you think he is cognitively strong enough to lead this country against China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and a new Axis of evil.”
Newsom, however, backed Biden, saying he does not “think he’s capable, I know he’s capable,” adding, “I’ve seen a masterclass in results the last few years.”
The Democratic governor also declared he believes Biden is “cognitively strong enough to be president,” as Hannity asked.
“I have conversations with him all the time, yes. And I’ll tell you what. I’m dead serious about that,” Newsom added.
Additionally, Hannity pushed Newsom on whether he gets asked about jumping into the 2024 presidential race because people “agree with me that [Biden’s] not up to the job.”
Newsom declined to answer, before flat out saying “no” about getting into the primary.
Biden is the oldest president in U.S. history, and questions have risen about his age and capability ahead of a 2024 re-election campaign.
