On Thursday afternoon, Joe Biden attended a meeting with wind industry executives. During the meeting, Joe inadvertently held up a note card given to him by staff members that told him exactly how to behave during the meeting. A cameraman was able to get a close-up shot of the note card.
The notecard that listed instructions for Biden was titled “Offshore Wind Drop-By Sequence of Events”
The first item read: YOU enter the Roosevelt Room and say hello to participants.”
Next, the instructions tell the befuddled Joe Biden, “YOU take YOUR seat,” then explains Joe’s next move, “YOU give brief comments (2 minutes).”
The list continues and ends with telling Joe to thank the participants and finally, “YOU depart”
“YOU depart”??? Does Joe really have to be told to leave the meeting?
The New York Post reports – Biden reportedly has bristled at staff attempting to control his message to the point that they even contradict his unexpected public utterances without checking with him.
Biden reportedly reminded staff that he’s president after they said he didn’t mean what he said in March when he called for Russian President Vladimir Putin to be removed from power over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“The so-called clean-up campaign, he has told advisers, undermines him and smothers the authenticity that fueled his rise. Worse, it feeds a Republican talking point that he’s not fully in command,” NBC News reported last month.
On March 5, Joe Biden was caught in another embarrassing situation, as he sat with a prepared speech on his lap about the current crisis in Ukraine while seated next to the President of the Republic of Finland Sauli Niinistö in the Oval Office.
If Joe was in the 4th grade, reading a speech from prepared notes on his lap while pretending to speak from the heart might be acceptable, but Joe’s not in the 4th grade—he’s in the Oval Office, and we are living in serious times that require a serious leader of the world’s most powerful nation.
“I’m delighted to have a good friend here with us today, the president of Finland, and uh–in the White House in what is a critical moment involving all of Europe. You know, we’ve been in contact for some time now…” and that was the extent of Joe’s ability to speak without prepared notes. Joe immediately moved on to read about their relationship, about the conflict in Ukraine, the security of Europe, and their commitment to important topics like the climate.
When Joe was finished reading his heartfelt comments to President Sauli Niinistö, the President of Finland responded eloquently without using a teleprompter or referring to a pre-written response. When Joe attempted to make a joke about how Barack Obama once said, “We’d be alright if we left everything to the Nordic countries,” the President of Finland shot back, “Well, we usually don’t start wars.” Biden, who had no idea how to respond, abruptly ended the press conference.
Perhaps it’s time for the Democrat Party, that’s trying so hard to convince the world nothing’s wrong with old Joe, to pull the plug on the old guy and send him back to Delaware where he and Nurse Jill can fade quietly away with Hunter and the grandkids.
They could live quite comfortably from the funds they collected in their highly lucrative deals with Ukraine and China while Joe was Barack Obama’s VP and Hunter was an energy and finance expert.
