On Thursday, day 65 of his presidency, hidin’ Joe Biden finally emerged to read from crib notes, sometimes going blank and stumbling. He was never challenged by the leftist reporters, taking questions from only ten of the few allowed in, while tactically omitting acknowledging FOX News‘ Peter Doocy. Photos of pre-selected reporters with their names and notes were seen on one of the pages he was shuffling through in a binder on the podium. Both the “cheat sheets” detailing key policy points and the identities of attending journalists are clearly depicted by Fox News.
Taxpayer-subsidized PBS’ leftist reporter Yamiche Alcindor was enthralled as she both gushed and lied with this toadying statement:
“You’ve said over and over again that immigrants shouldn’t come to this country right now. That message is not being received,” she deceptively stated. “Instead, the perception of you that got you elected as a moral, decent man is the reason a lot of immigrants are coming to this country and are trusting you with unaccompanied minors.”
There is nothing moral, decent or humanitarian about incentivizing people to embark on dangerous trips with criminal drug cartels, who often abuse those who paid to be transported. The most recent number of unaccompanied minors being held in stretched-to-the-limit border facilities is 16,000.
In fact, Biden, who said he’d “spent 120 years in the senate” campaigned on opening the border, an issue he’s reneging on as president. The tightly scripted press conference was a continuation of Team Biden’s campaign basement strategy — preventing impromptu interactions, keeping him on note cards, staying away from any specific numbers.
During his first speaking appearance, he said nothing about the economy, jobs, or reopening America’s schools, and implied the filibuster, which the democrats now want to eliminate, is racist, a remark that went unchallenged.
When sycophantically asked if he planned on running for reelection, 78-year-old Biden, who has exhibited cognitive difficulties throughout the campaign, said, “My plan is to run for reelection. That is my expectation.” Biden would be 82 on Jan. 20, 2025, Inauguration Day for the winner of the next election. Bets are he won’t serve out this complete term.
Asked whether he expects to face former President Trump in another general election campaign, Biden blathered, “I have no idea. I have no idea if there will be a Republican Party.”
Despite his struggles, radically left Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, remained enthusiastic, declaring the president “excelled” while the media, which coddled him, “did not succeed in knocking Biden off message.” Clearly enfeebled Biden had no message. He had prepared scripts from which he read and for which was strenuously rehearsed during preparatory mock sessions.
The so-called “press conference” was such an embarrassment, the far left, Biden-supporting local newspaper relegated the coverage to the bottom of page six.
Biden is not a president, he’s a farce.
