(Patriot Insider) – Joe Biden is his own worst enemy. Listening to him try to speak and string words together into sentences is some kind of special torture. He has made a habit of embarrassing the US and making us into a laughing stock the majority of the times he opens his mouth.
That’s why Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) asserted that it would be best for the country if Biden just kept his mouth shut and stayed out of view.
During an interview on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, Sen. Paul did not mince words when he gave his thoughts on Joe Biden’s recent two-hour press conference and Biden’s assertion that a “minor” incursion by Russia into Ukraine wasn’t any big deal.
He explained that while watching Joe Biden speak, he thought, “You know, it’s rambling and disjointed enough that it’s really hard to get a coherent message out of it. I think really for the good of the country because the thing about foreign policy, as I know you know, is there are things you say. There are things you do to try to influence other countries. And they are influenced by your public pronouncements. And in some ways, that’s all you have. You have the threat of military might, but you also have the influence of what you say.”
He continued, “So you can’t be sending a muddled message or a message of well, it may not be too big a deal, you know, if there’s a Russian incursion. So I think that it’s a mistake for him to be out in front. It’s dangerous to the country. And I think we’re stuck with him, in all likelihood, until 2024.
“And I think it would be good for the country for him not to speak and not to appear in public,” he said.
Sen. Paul certainly has a point. Biden isn’t doing the US any favors when he speaks, especially in the department of foreign affairs. It’s absurd to think anyone around the world could possibly take him seriously.
Biden’s latest comments are just further proof that he is a fool. On Wednesday, when he called the incursion on Ukraine by Russia “minor” it prompted a response from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
“We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations,” Zelensky said, adding, “Just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones. I say this as the president of a great power.”
Biden had previously stated that the US would hold Russian President Vladimir Putin accountable if Russia invaded Ukraine but also said, according to USA Today, that the consequences would depend on the extent of Russia’s aggression towards Ukraine.
“It depends on what (Russia) does. It’s one thing if it’s a minor incursion and we end up having to fight about [what] we have to do and not do,” Biden said.
Republican lawmakers called Biden out, saying his comments were “deeply problematic and could be seen by Putin as a free pass to invade Ukraine.”
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) said that “Biden’s remarks on Russia’s buildup near Ukraine tonight were nothing short of a disaster,” and added, “He shared the potential disunity of Western nations on tough sanctions and clearly gave Vladimir Putin the green light to launch a ‘minor incursion.’”
In response, Biden’s handlers forced him to clarify his comments on Thursday: “If any assembled Russian units move across the Ukrainian border, that is an invasion. Let there be no doubt if Putin makes this choice, Russia will pay a heavy price.”
Putin is surely shaking in his boots now. Joe Biden is a clown and no one can take him seriously.
