"Donald Trump didn’t need to sleep five hours and he would be engaged"

Sean Hannity asked McCarthy for his observations on President Joe Biden after their recent meeting. Hannity said of the president, “I kinda see Joe as a little bit out of it, well, a little bit more than out of it, a little checked out. And I’m concerned that I am not the only one that sees it. As a matter of fact, everybody I talk to says they see it.”

The congressman compared Biden to his predecessor. “At no time, having known Joe Biden for some time, does he have the energy of Donald Trump. Donald Trump didn’t need to sleep 5 hours and he would be engaged. If you called Donald Trump, he’d get on the phone before staff would.”

McCarthy offered some mild positives about the current president. “He was with it. He was engaging and giving me numbers and talking.”
