VIDEOS: Yesterday's Biden Press Conference was a Spectacle
Cheatsheets, flat jokes, and incoherent sentences were only a few of the many things that can sum up the spectacle of Joe Biden's first press conference in over 60 days.
The president managed to raise eyebrows on both sides of the aisle saying that he "came to the United States Senate 120 years ago." Ummmm, one can only hope that was an intended joke, but knowing Joe, it'll remain an unsolved mystery.
At one point, about 53 minutes into the press conference or so, Biden said that America ranks "85th in the world in infrastructure" and then managed to contradict himself one minute later saying "we rank 13th globally in infrastructure." Well, which one is it, Joe?
He even, not surprisingly, managed to flat out deceive the American public right to their faces when it came to topics including immigration and voting.
He double downed in falsely blaming the Trump administration for the crisis at the border. There was no blame taken by him or his administration for the surge in illegal immigration into the country. The only blame he gave himself for the surge was that he's a "nice guy."
In terms of voting, he said, "Deciding in some states that you cannot bring water to people standing in line waiting to vote, deciding that you’re going to end voting at five o’clock when working people are just getting off work, deciding that there will be no absentee ballots under the most rigid circumstances." Americans are not stupid and we know those are absolute lies. He or whoever wrote his notes must really think we're that dumb.
Biden's most flat joke of the event was in response to Republicans wanting to stop the passing of one of the most anti-American bills sitting in Congress at this moment - the H.R 1 "For the People Act." Joe said, "This makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle. I mean, this is gigantic what they’re trying to do and it cannot be sustained." Is that supposed to be a bad grandpa joke as opposed to a dad joke or something?
And here's his meltdown in case you missed it, with a nice little touch of my own at the end compliments of The Wedding Singer:
Another question we'd all love an answer to was where was Fox News' Peter Doocy? Now I know that most have their qualms with the news outlet, but Peter is a heavy hitter and is known to throw tough questions at Biden's sidekick White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, most of which she has to "circle back" on.
All the other reporters seem to have been extras casted to read off of scripts in the daytime soap opera starring Joe Biden, "Days of Our Lies." It seemed as if no right-leaning outlets were allowed to participate and everything was fabricated. What a shame and what a disaster. This administration can't even be honest with the American people. They either forget we pay their salaries or just don't care as long as tax laws are in place. We won't forget, though.
