(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- On Wednesday, President Joe Biden held a town hall in Cincinnati that aired on CNN. It was such an unmitigated disaster, hardly anyone in the corporate news media is reporting on it.
It’s unclear why the White House would put Joe Biden on live television late in the day when his ability to formulate a coherent sentence is at its worst. But they did, and he was a train wreck.
Even with a supportive, sycophantic Don Lemon as his moderator, Biden floundered and meandered, while often getting lost on his way to a point.
Early on, when trying to discuss the possibility of vaccinating children under twelve, Biden struggled painfully – burping out a meaningless word salad and eventually getting to some sort of point that had nothing to do with the question.

The entire town hall was like this — Biden babbling incoherently as he struggled to say something that made sense. And often, when he finally landed on a point, it was either deeply dishonest, way off topic, or unbelievably grandiose.
Joe was incapable of uttering one single complete sentence without either veering off midway through, losing his place, or stumbling over his words.
Now, Biden is rarely coherent. But nighttime is the worst time for someone in cognitive decline. The decision to broadcast a live town hall late in the evening was tremendously unwise.
The RNC released a 49-second summary of Biden’s painful town hall.

Not that many people were watching. Even with a live special program featuring the President who allegedly won over 80 million votes, CNN’s town hall still got beat out by both Fox News and MSNBC in the ratings.
Nielson reported that CNN pulled in an average of 1.46 million viewers between 8:00 pm and 9:15 pm when the town hall was on. That was a 58 percent drop in audience from the previous CNN town hall with Biden that aired in February.
Meanwhile, over at Fox News 2.76 million viewers tuned in to watch Tucker Carlson Tonight and the first fifteen minutes of Hannity. MSNBC squeaked past Biden’s town hall with 1.47 million viewers tuning in to Chris Hayes’ 8:00 pm program and the first portion of Rachel Maddow’s show.
In the coveted 25-54 demographic, CNN netted 297,000 viewers. But Fox News blew that away with 475,000 viewers.
Even the town hall audience itself was sparse. The New York Post tweeted a photograph taken from the back of the auditorium that showed Biden was speaking to a half-empty room.
