Joe Biden isn’t as lively as he used to be. Not exactly breaking news, but it seems to be getting worse.
At 79, Biden is our oldest president. He consistently stumbles and misspeaks, forcing his beleaguered staff to retract his statements or pretend the lapse never happened.
Speaking at a White House conference on food, nutrition and health on Wednesday, Biden acknowledged the elected officials who helped organize the event.
“I want to thank all of you here for including bipartisan elected officials like Rep. (Jim) McGovern, Sen. (Mike) Braun, Sen. (Cory) Booker, Representative – Jackie, are you here?” Biden said, looking around the crowd. “Where’s Jackie? I think she wasn’t going to be here – to help make this a reality.”
He was looking for Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Ind., who was killed in a tragic car accident in early August. A death he commemorated at the time in a solemn White House statement.
But like the embarrassment wasn’t enough he went on the world stage and literally froze on live TV.
Our media isn’t willing to cover this kind of embarrassing situation but the reporter on Sky News Australia looks horrified.
In this video, watch the long pause from Biden, as he’s totally unable to get his thoughts in order. But in the end, Biden appears to admit that yes, Putin is a “killer,” but that’s okay.
You can watch the video below:
Biden, who botched the Afghanistan withdrawal, is now dabbling in “WW3” issues, and it’s getting scarier by the minute.
To understand what’s happening, it’s best not to think of this as a Biden Presidency, but a Biden Regency.
The term was regularly used in the age of kings and empires. If an 8-year-old princess was placed on the throne or an incapable king couldn’t perform his duties, one or several regents would handle the day-to-day operations.
Many a royal adviser would ignore a capable successor, instead crowning a child so the courtiers could run things behind the scenes.
One regency served during the reign of King George III, most famous for losing the Revolutionary War. After several concerning incidents, his mental health collapsed. George remained king on paper, but the Parliament appointed his heir as Prince Regent.
The dissolute prince decided he would rather party than rule, so he happily let the advisers run the show. The regency ran the empire for the next decade.
Whoever’s running things, they aren’t doing it well
