Biden Tries to Take Credit for Bin Laden Raid… But He Opposed It
Joe Biden had another very bizarre appearance on Thursday.
Once again, Biden had several mental freezes during a short period of time.
He also happened to twist some historical facts again, something the GOP jumped all over as soon as the words came out of his mouth.
The Bin Laden Raid
During the campaign and several times during this presidency, Joe Biden has tried to use the Bin Laden raid to bolster his credibility on the fight against terrorism.
Biden has always made it sound as though he was behind the raid and instrumental in carrying it out.
That, however, was not really the case.
The first version of what happened during the discussions on the raid came right from Biden’s own mouth.
Biden stated, “The president, he went around the table with all the senior people, including the chiefs of staff, and he said, ‘I have to make a decision. What is your opinion?’
“He started with the national security adviser, the secretary of state, and he ended with me. Every single person in that room hedged their bet except [CIA Director] Leon Panetta. Leon said, ‘Go.’ Everyone else said, 49, 51.
“He got to me. He said, ‘Joe, what do you think?’ And I said, ‘You know, I didn’t know we had so many economists around the table.’ I said, ‘We owe the man a direct answer. Mr. President, my suggestion is, don’t go. We have to do two more things to see if he’s there.’”
Biden was clearly not 100 percent behind the raid at that point, but that is quite different from the story he tells today…
Interestingly, during a Washington Post fact-check on this subject, they tried to justify Biden’s comments and did so even though other accounts backed up Biden’s hesitancy on this.
The Washington Post reported, “Biden at the time probably did not expect to run again for president. He was clearly trying to make Obama look like a gutsy decision-maker in the face of antsy aides.”
So, now they know what Biden was thinking at the time? They used this thinking to justify a two Pinocchio rating rather than slam Biden with an outright lie.
Read the accounts of the discussion and you will see that Biden wanted nothing to do with that raid at that moment.
He was more worried about political fallout than he was ridding the planet of one of the most dangerous terrorists of our time.
Sad to see his imagination is the strongest thing left in his old, worn-out brain. In his demented mind, he freed the slaves, won WWII single-handedly, and actually won the 2020 election with the highest number of votes in history. So OF COURSE, he was the one that launched that phony Bin Laden raid. Creepy Joe is indeed a national hero (in his broken brain). In reality, he’s easily the worst President in the history of this country.
Our allies see the USA just like most of us do. They see us being led by a corrupt, incompetent fool whose dementia is becoming increasingly clear to everyone, including our global enemies and friends. With Biden at the helm, our dangerous world has become even more so. Nothing about what is happening is sustainable long-term. The warning signals of imminent danger are ubiquitous, even if Biden, his handlers and our media refuse to recognize them.
Now in addition to Biden flying illegals all over the country, they are giving some bus tickets and money and sending them to swing states. Not only is this dangerous during the pandemic, it is devious and part of the reason Democrats don't like voting laws. Their plan of course is to switch swing and Conservative states blue!! The Governor of Florida stated he has learned that many of them are going to Florida. So Democrats are breaking the law to assure they cannot be voted put of office and can continue their plans to change our country!!
IF Biden was so worried about the Covid outbreak in the country, then why is he allowing the thousands if not hundreds of thousands of untested Covid illegal immigrants to come across our southern border?
Watch: Biden Stumbles Over His Words For A Full 40 Seconds During CNN Town Hall
Former Vice President Joe Biden is having a rough go of it during his fake news town hall on CNN. During the shocking clip below, it’s clear that he’s struggling to even string together words for form sentences. This is getting BAD.
While answering a question about vaccines, Biden spewed word salad for a full 40 seconds while the crowd sat there in stunned silence.
“Just like the other question that’s illogical…and, I’ve heard you speak about it, because you alway-, I’m not being solicitous, but you’re always straight up about what you’re doing.
The question is whether or not we should be in a position where, um, you uh, why can’t the…the…the experts say, we know that this virus is in fact, uh um, it’s going to be, excuse me, we we know why all the drugs are approved but permanently approved,” Biden said.
This is video proof that Biden isn’t in control, and has real cognitive mental problems. How much do you want to bet that the leaders of Russia, Iran, China & N. Korea are keeping aware of Biden’s massive mental problems?
Biden Labeled ‘Elderly Man Struggling To Maintain His Faculties’ After Disastrous Town Hall
Is President Joe Biden “an elderly man struggling to maintain his faculties?”
That’s one of the unkinder — or at least blunter — takeaways social media had after Wednesday night’s CNN presidential town hall in the Cincinnati area where Biden pushed vaccination, his spending plans, gun control and the impression this definitely wasn’t the guy who should be leading the free world.
Two clips in particular seemed to sum up the general atmosphere of the night. In the first, Biden struggled when asked about when vaccines would be available for children under 12.
“And the question is whether or not we should be in a position where you are — why can’t the experts say we know that this virus is, in fact — is, is, is going to be — or, excuse me — we, we, we know why all the drugs approved are not temporarily approved, but permanently approved,” Biden said.
“That’s underway, too. I expect that to occur quickly.”
In another, Biden began by talking about vaccine hesitancy and ended up babbling about men on the moon and “whether those aliens are here or not.”
For context, before the clip, Biden was addressing who you go to when you want the answer to a nagging question: “Or, you know — or, or, or, or, or the mom and dad, or, or, or, or the neighbor or when you go to church or when you’re — now, I, I, I, I really mean it. There are trusted interlocutors,” Biden said.
“Think of the people, if, if your kid wanted to find out whether or not there were — there’s 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?”
Sure, yeah, whatever.
It wasn’t an hour full of that, which was a shame. As a person who genuinely enjoys auto racing, I’ve never known what it’s like to watch NASCAR for the crashes. Thanks to Joe Biden town halls, I can now roughly grok the experience — a whole lot of tedium punctuated by a few glorious outbursts of smoke-shrouded screeching and crunching of metal.
There’s a downside to entertaining yourself thusly, however. In NASCAR, depending on what happens, someone could get hurt. In the town halls, no matter what happens, Biden’s still the leader of the free world when it’s over.
That sobering thought led conservative pundit Todd Starnes to note that Biden seemed to be “an elderly man struggling to maintain his faculties.”
“Are we all just going to ignore what we saw on CNN tonight – an elderly man struggling to maintain his faculties on national television?” Starnes tweeted.
Tom Elliott, impresario of video clip provider Grabien, managed to go viral with this two-word caption to Biden’s first rambling answer: “Crushing it.”
Political strategist Caleb Hull’s take: “This guy is our president and can’t even complete a sentence.”
Podcaster Dave Rubin: “How was Don Lemon’s follow up question not, ‘Joe, are you OK?’”
GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York: “Is this for real? And the media will continue to fawn and look the other way.”
Liberals might be tempted to rationalize Wednesday night’s performance away thusly:
Sorry, no. This had nothing to do with Joe Biden’s stuttering. Yes, Biden has a stutter, and that’s not what anyone is making fun of. He’s had it for the entirety of his public life. What we’re seeing now wasn’t Joe Biden in 1971, 1991 or 2011, however.
Sure, he would say dumb things then, and wholly unrelated to his stutter at that. (Tell me, was stuttering responsible for the time he told an Indian-American man “you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent” back in 2006? Does stuttering make you prone to stereotyping? Where’s the link to a speech impediment there, keyboard warriors?)
At least you knew he was saying something, though, and the frequency was rare enough you could just shrug it off.
Those gaffes happen more frequently now — and it’s not just gaffes like Dunkin’ Donuts-level stereotyping, although that still happens.
Now we can’t even tell what he’s saying. I’m not sure Don Lemon knew, and I’m certain our president didn’t. He sounded like — well, “an elderly man struggling to maintain his faculties.” Todd Starnes had it right.
Thanks to the presidential limo, at least we don’t have to worry about him driving his car, but now we have to concern ourselves with the fact he’s driving the country. If you like watching NASCAR for the crashes, I suppose, you’re in for a real treat.
Shame he’s going to be putting the stars and stripes into the retaining wall quite a bit for the next few years.
I really would like to blame some else other than Joe for putting him in this position. He is fast becoming the poster shot for drooling old man with dementia and very deservingly so he is the face of the DNC now. As he proclaims he is the DNC! Their second choice, thanks to George Soros’s son is good ole dependable spread eagle Harris. Sorry bad image. Anyway the toilet is about to flush.
