It appears as if America finally has a truth-telling Speaker of the House.
According to the New York Post, House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) held nothing back in his assessment of President Joe Biden's cognitive decline and overall failure to lead the United States from a policy perspective.
Speaker Johnson made the remarks during a recent interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
Johnson was elected last week after several rounds of secret ballots. He has been a top ally to former President Donald Trump.
Hannity quizzed Johnson after the new speaker met with the elderly president after his election.
"Do you see in Joe Biden a cognitive decline, and if so, is that a danger to the country?" Hannity asked.
"I do. I think most of us do,” Johnson replied. "This is not a personal slight to him. It has to do with age and acumen, and everyone’s different. Everyone ages differently."
"Clearly, if you look at a tape of Joe Biden making an argument in the Senate Judiciary Committee a few years ago and you see a speech that he delivers now, there’s a difference," Johnson added. "Again, it’s not a personal insult to him. It’s just reality."

Johnson went on to talk about Biden's failed policies.
Johnson held nothing back in discussing his political feelings toward the president, emphasizing that any disagreements between him and the president aren't personal.
"I’d only met him once before. It was cordial and pleasant. I have no problem with President Biden as an individual, right? You respect the office. It’s a biblical admonition that you give honor where honor is due and that’s the honest — the respect that we have for the office," Johnson told Hannity.
He added, "But he and I agree on almost no policy. So we didn’t get into that too much today, Sean, but there’ll be time for that in the days ahead."
Only time will tell if Johnson and the Biden administration go head-to-head on future issues.
