Fox News reports:
About three dozen House Democrats have signed a letter asking President Biden to renounce his sole authority to launch nuclear weapons, according to reports....

"Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks," the letter from Rep. Jimmy Panetta, D-Calif., and obtained by Politico reads. "Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president’s judgment."
Newsmax has a similar story, citing the original Politico report. Fox and Newsmax don't explicitly state what they want their audiences to take away from this story, but Gateway Pundit says what they're thinking, or at least what they expect their fan base to think:
According to recent reports, there are a number of Democrats who don’t want Joe Biden to have full control of America’s nuclear weapons.

Do they know something the rest of us don’t? Or is it possible that they know what everyone knows, that Biden’s mental state is compromised by his advanced age?

Either way, this isn’t a very good look....

What could explain such a thing? Maybe this:

But the principal co-signer of Panetta's letter is fellow congressman Ted Lieu -- who's introduced a bill called the Restricting First Use of Nuclear Weapons Act, which would codify these changes in nuclear policy, in 2016, 2017, and 2019. Senate backers of the measure have included Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

The Fox and Newsmax stories contain no explicit references to Biden's mental health, but even without them, readers get the hint. From the Newsmax comments:
The Democrat/Hate Party knows that Beijing Biden is TRUTHFULLY MENTALLY IMPAIRED. They don't trust him. Of course they will not admit it because they LIE about everything under the Sun.

The time is getting close for KOMMIE HARRIS to move into the White House. Get Ready.


That's code for don't trust the Dementia patient.


Joes ability to think clearly was gone long ago, pink elephants etc. occupy his brain most of the time. he publicly has shown a cognitive problem, ask any doctor.
And my favorite comment:
Ahh yes, the nuclear football that is traditionally handed off from Pres to Pres on inauguration day, but Trump headed off to Mar Lago (AKA, The Southern Whitehouse). There are actually two footballs and word is, Joe's is a dud.

There's also two identical Air Force-1 planes, but Joe had to charter a private jet to his own inauguration... that's weird. Then when we finally do see Joe boarding an "AF-1", it doesn't even look like the same plane Trump's been flying on the last four years. The nose cone (Modified for Mid-air refueling?), isn't even close.

The real AF-1's are flying fortresses, capable of withstanding massive EMP attacks. If Joe is flyi8ng around in a cheap imitation, he is not the POTUS, period!
That settles it! If Biden isn't flying around in a plane that looks like Air Force One to Newsmax readers, he's not president! It's in the Constitution!

I suppose Fox and Newsmax occasionally run stories that aren't intended to make the audience hate Democrats even more, but that appears to happen rarely. This is a benign-seeming story, but it's meant to make Biden look impaired. And it's working.
