Spoiler alert: I might be sticking up for Joe Biden in this article.

Ok, maybe not that extreme, but I’ll try to explain….

At this point, I’m guessing almost everyone knows that Joe Biden made an official declaration over the weekend declaring Easter Sunday to be “Transgender Visibility Day”:

“Devout Catholic” Joe Biden Declares Easter Sunday “Transgender Visibility Day”

Now let me advance the story....

Now as Monday rolls around, Speaker Mike Johnson called the move "outrageous" (he's right about that) and then a reporter asked Biden about Speaker Johnson's comments.

Biden replied: "He's thoroughly uninformed".

When pressed again, Biden said "I didn't do that!"

So....a couple possibilities here....

It's possible he truly knows nothing about it:

After all, we all know Biden isn't truly in charge.

And even if he were caught off guard by this and didn't know it happened, he's not sharp enough to try and cover on the spot.

So I find that VERY possible that he's simply telling the truth:  "I didn't do that!"  Because *he* didn't.  Someone else did it and slapped his name on it.

Or it's possible that he's trying to split some hairs here in an effort to claim he "didn't do that"....kind of like the Fact-Checkers do when they "fact check" something.

Find some inconsequential distinction and then claim the whole thing is a lie.

We do certainly know he did shoot this video:

Fox News had more details:

President Biden said Monday that he "didn't do that" when asked about his official White House proclamation declaring March 31, the same day as Easter this year, as Transgender Day Of Visibility.

In an exchange with reporters at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll, Biden declined responsibility for the proclamation when asked about House Speaker Mike Johnson's, R-La., criticism of the action. Over the weekend, Johnson wrote in a post on X, formerly Twitter, that the White House "betrayed the central tenet of Easter," adding that the proclamation was "outrageous and abhorrent."

"He’s thoroughly uninformed," Biden remarked when asked about Johnson's comments. "I didn’t do that."

In a statement to Fox News Digital, a spokesperson for the White House downplayed the president's comments, noting that he didn't choose March 31 as the date for Transgender Day of Visibility. Since 2021, when Biden took office, the White House has issued the same proclamation on March 31 every year.

"President Biden is right. He did nothing in conflict with the ‘tenets’ of Easter, which he celebrated yesterday. Nor did he choose the date of March 31 for Transgender Day of Visibility, which has been set since 2009," White House spokesperson Andrew Bates said in an email.

In addition to the Transgender Day of Visibility proclamation, the White House simultaneously issued a flurry of other proclamations, including Cesar Chavez Day, National Donate Life Month, National Cancer Prevention and Early Detection Month, Arab American Heritage Month and Care Workers Recognition Month.

But the timing of the Transgender Day of Visibility proclamation generated widespread outrage among Christians, who characterized its timing with Easter as disrespectful.

"What a slap in the face to all Christians in America…" conservative commentator Benny Johnson said in a social media post Saturday.

"This is a direct assault on Christianity. It’s evident the left is determined to undermine our religion and traditions," added Rep. Diana Harshbarger, R-Tenn. "This isn’t just blatant disregard, it’s intentional."
