Republican Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) has blasted Democrat President Joe Biden over his handling of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Biden is “detached from reality” and “delusional” about the threat posed by CCP, Johnson told Maria Bartiromo on Fox News’s “Sunday Morning Futures.”
Johnson also slammed Biden over his handling of the recent downing of a suspected Chinese spy balloon.
“He’s detached from reality,” Johnson said of Biden.
“He’s delusional,” the senator added.
“He says that we have control over it. We don’t.
“And the fact that he doesn’t acknowledge the fact that what is happening here is alarming and puts our nation in peril is itself alarming.”
As the balloon drifted over the United States some two weeks ago, Republicans scrutinized the president over his handling of the situation.
“We don’t exactly have the A-team in place right now, which is also more than unfortunate,” Johnson continued.
“We have got to say the B-team isn’t probably even accurate …
“And it should alarm Americans.”

As the balloon floated over the continental U.S., drifting across nuclear sites and such, defense officials recommended the president not shoot it down until it reached the coast of South Carolina, so teams could retrieve the craft over Atlantic waters and gather intelligence from it.
Johnson’s criticism of Biden comes after reports of three additional objects of unknown origin being shot down in North American airspace.
