Hannity said Tuesday that the party has "lied to you for four-plus straight years."

He said: "…In fact, and as we speak, they are turning a blind eye to the obvious and serious concerns about … Joe Biden's strength, his stamina, alertness, and mental acuity."

Hannity went on to say that the Democrats are "ignoring a walking disaster in Biden and they know it."

"They're so desperate to beat Donald Trump that they're willing to put this country, literally, in the position of supporting somebody who would be elected president that is weak, that is frail, that is obviously a candidate that is not up to the job, the hardest job in the entire world."

The anchor's comments come just hours after Biden's White House stenographer said that he doesn't have the "same mental acuity" as he did as vice president.

He told The Washington Free Beacon: "He's lost a step and he doesn't seem to have the same mental acuity as he did four years ago."

"He doesn't have the energy, he doesn't have the pace of his speaking," McCormick continued. "He's a different guy."

The former employee also noted the difference between Biden's previous ad-lib speeches, in comparison to his recent addresses.

"He'd just make a big joke out of it, and go straight from the hip. And notice, he’s not doing that anymore," he said.

"He read that [Democratic National Committee speech] verbatim … it's not Joe Biden anymore."

He also said that Biden appears to get "lost" during recent interviews.

Biden is well-known for frequent speaking "gaffes," most of which have risen only to the level of minor embarrassment during his decades in office.

President Donald Trump, however, has repeatedly hammered Biden's cognitive abilities and paints him as being controlled by Democratic party operatives, a line of attack which has thrust Biden's mental acuity into the spotlight.
