Sometimes, I listen to Joe Biden–and all I can think is: he is one weird dude.
He was asked on Friday if he would be visiting the site of the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, and his response was bizarre. He said he did a “whole video,” and he couldn’t remember that it was a “Zoom” video.
“Zoom. All I can hear every time I think of Zoom is that song of my generation, ‘Who’s Zoomin’ Who?’” Biden babbled.
Yikes. At this point, he’s just not a serious person; he seems completely out of it. You have a disaster in East Palestine, and that’s how he’s responding?
He had a chance to reach out to the folks in East Palestine, to show Americans that he cared. It would even have been advantageous to him politically had he done it. Yet, he couldn’t do it. Even now, more than three weeks later, he’s saying he’s done so much because he made a Zoom call and spent two hours with his Cabinet.
Biden then did an interview with ABC’s David Muir where he was asked about East Palestine. Biden claimed that he couldn’t remember if he talked to the mayor but he talked to everyone else.
Then Muir asked him if he was running again. He said that he would have to check with his wife, which I think was supposed to be a joke, but probably there’s also a lot of truth there as well. At this point, I think he doesn’t know what he’s doing unless his handlers tell him. But he said there were too many other things he had to deal with in the near term, before he started a campaign.
His wife said that pretty much the only thing they had to work out was where he was going to announce running again.
“He’s not finished what he’s started, and that’s what’s important,” Jill Biden declared. Oh, my, you mean he’s not finished with us yet? What a horrible thought. He still has more things that he can mess up and destroy.
“Look at all that Joe has done, has accomplished!” she bragged. I’m not sure I can think of one positive thing.
Muir also asked Biden about the classified documents, and if they compromised “sources and methods.” Biden ducked the question. Check out his eyes on this one; he’s disturbed by this question, likely because it’s right on target.
Biden elaborated on what he said in a prior interview about a document from 1974 from his Senate days. Now, he says it’s a “couple of things” from that period. But it’s already been established there are some 30 documents including from more recent times, as well, and including things that were top secret at his Penn Biden Center office–contrary to what Joe is saying here.
Muir asked him more about his irresponsibility and Biden claimed there were “degrees of irresponsibility,” claiming they just didn’t check when things were packed from his office.
He’s right — there are degrees. Trump could get away with the “boxes were hurriedly packed excuse.” But Biden has documents from different offices — from his time in the Senate and his time as VP. To get classified documents from his time in the Senate raises a big question — did he smuggle them out of a SCIF? Because that’s how you’re supposed to be viewing them. He shouldn’t even have them at all, at any point, in his possession. It’s an issue that’s been going on with him for decades.
Muir also inquired about the Chinese spy balloon and whether Biden thought it was intentional and if Xi Jinping knew.
Biden said, “It is almost not relevant once it was over the United States,” and he said Xi might not have known. That’s nuts. Of course, Xi knew and yes, it’s very relevant if it was intentional and collecting data, while Biden let it go over the country for a week.
Muir observed that we’ve already given $113 billion to Ukraine, and there appears to be no end in sight of how much of our money and weaponry Biden will pour out. Muir said many Americans were asking what was the limit on this.
Biden downplayed the concern of Americans, “I’m not sure how many are asking that. I know the MAGA crowd is. The right-wing Republicans.” I can assure him it’s far more than that. But once again, there goes the “unifier” taking a shot at millions of Americans and denigrating their justifiable concerns. He’s just clueless as to what most Americans are thinking.
Biden just keeps stepping in it, and I can’t imagine how he could possibly make it through a campaign when he’s already so far gone.
