It now appears, gentle readers, I’ll have to produce a series on the increasingly bizarre things Joe Biden can’t keep from saying. As regular readers know, I began that sad series with President Dementia: Good And Hard.
These increasingly common—as in daily—incidents are comical in a very dark way, but considering Biden is the figurehead leader of the Free World, absolutely horrifying. Consider this small contribution—there will surely be far more—part of a chronicle of how long it will take D/S/Cs to admit the danger to America and to liberty around the globe Biden represents, and to act on it. My guess? At least until after the November, 2022 mid-term elections. We begin with an incident, courtesy of Redstate, bizarre even for Biden:
It seems that multiple times a week we’re scratching our heads trying to figure out just exactly what he said. Now, I really have no idea what the heck he said here. People have said it sounds like ‘My butt’s been wiped.’
Indeed it does, but then why would he be saying that? I don’t know, it’s Joe. There is no rationale for the insanity. This is our ‘leader.’
In case you think that clip wasn’t real, here it is in full context. Not that the context helps. He totters up to them looking like he has a bit of a gait disorder. ‘Does immigration need to be in reconciliation? A pathway for citizenship?’ the reporters ask him. Then he says whatever that weird phrase is.
By all means, take the link and see for yourself. My guess is Biden, his appropriateness governors seriously degraded, thought it a funny thing to say. Notice his grin after he said it. It’s possible he said something else, but watch his lips as he speaks. That’s what it surely looks and sounds like, and it’s hard to imagine what else he could have said.
The reporters all laugh as though this is normal and he rambles off. But even his more coherent response needs more explanation because it doesn’t make sense. “There needs to be a pathway to citizenship whether it needs to be in immigration remains to be seen,” he said. Um, ok? Where would it be, if not in immigration?
Now, if we can’t figure it out, you have to think they would have had trouble too. Why didn’t any of them ask? They just laugh and he moves on. Do they not care that he just says something completely incoherent?
Maybe he did say it, weird as it is. But then do we have to wonder who wiped his butt? And why am I having to ask that of the alleged leader of the free world? Imagine what other countries are thinking about this craziness.
Why indeed? Now we visit Fox News, where Biden had more difficulties:
‘Back in 2009, during the so-called Great Recession, the president asked me to be in charge of managing that piece, then-President Trump,’ Biden told a Pennsylvania crowd. ‘Excuse me, Freudian slip, that was the last president. He caused the…anyway, President Obama when I was vice-president.’
Take the link and see for yourself. The text doesn’t do justice to his confused, bumbling speech patterns. He really is lost.
In a visit to what appears to have been a Mack Truck factory, Biden suddenly claimed he used to drive an 18-wheeler, a vocation about which no one has ever been aware, probably including Biden. He probably drove it to the pool where the kids used to grope his leg hair and he took care of Corn Pop. The White House has tried to prop Biden up by observing he once took a ride in an 18-wheeler.
The invaluable Babylon Bee has a bit of fun with that one:
One of the things I used to reiterate for my students is the brain’s tendency to make sense of things that make no sense. In proofreading one’s own work, or even reading the writings of others, if something makes no sense, we tend to automatically try to fix it, to say “I know what they really meant to say even if they didn’t really say it.” Read this example, courtesy of Red Pilled, from President Biden at his recent CNN town hall. Try reading it aloud, which will help turn off your correction reflex. And when you’ve read it, try it once more, because you can bet foreign leaders, or their translators, will be doing just that.
You, you, you, you got the vaccination? Are you okay, I mean, you seem, no it works. Or, you, you know, or or or or the mom and dad or or or or or the neighbor or when you go to church or when you’re um, no, I I I I I really mean it, there are trusted interlockerners [?!]. Think of the people! If your kid wanted to find out whether or not there were, is a man on the moon, or whatever, you know, something, or, you know, whether those aliens are here or not, you know, who are the people they talk to beyond the kids who love talking about it?
God help us.
UPDATE, 07-30-21, 2045 MT: Oh, My. God. Powerline reports earlier today, Biden was on a public Zoom conference and was handed this note:
Mr. Biden apparently removed whatever it was, and apparently–put it in his mouth.
It is an axiom that as we lose our faculties due to age, we regress to infancy. So it would seem, is the case with the current Temporary President. Take the link. See for yourself.
The Saturday essay in tomorrow’s Wall Street Journal review section will be an excerpt from the forthcoming Peter Bergen book on The Rise and Fall of Osama bin Laden, and one passage has this curious detail:
‘[bin Laden] explained that killing President Barack Obama was a high priority, but he also had General David Petraeus, at that time the U.S. commander in Afghanistan, in his sights. Bin Laden told his team not to bother with plots against Vice President Joe Biden, whom he considered ‘totally unprepared’ for the post of president.’
Well, he was a murderous terrorist, but he obviously wasn’t stupid.
