As Russian President Vladimir Putin continues to thumb his nose at the global community with his ongoing invasion of Ukraine, American President Joe Biden is reminding the world exactly why Putin felt like he could get away with it.
On Friday, President Biden held a press conference to show off his pick to replace retiring Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, because the day that war was breaking out in Eastern Europe and one of our allies was passing out rifles to citizens to defend their nation was totally an appropriate day to do so, naturally.
Not content with this utterly appalling timing, Biden also used the opportunity to put on full display not only his intersectionally-accredited black female nominee but also his own utter incompetence.
While introducing his SCOTUS pick, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, during a news conference on Friday to mark the occasion of her nomination, the president, for some unknown reason, announced he would adjust the podium to better suit her relatively slighter figure.
This is, of course, typically the job of an underling, and it was ultimately an underling who scurried onto the stage to lend a helping hand as Biden struggled to work the podium.
Biden’s response to this gaffe, as captured on audio for the whole world to see?
“See, presidents can’t do much!” he quipped.
Now, before you think I’m being too hard on the old guy, bear in mind that this is not a fluke. This is absolutely normal behavior for the septuagenarian president and serves to embarrassingly underscore one rather noteworthy aspect of why Putin has not responded to his administration’s threats.
In addition to the woke-ified military that’s more interested in preferred pronouns than combat preparedness, Biden’s utter, deadly disaster in Afghanistan last summer and his weak threats of sanctions against Putin’s advances on Ukraine, Biden has been putting on whatever the exact opposite of a strong front is all week.
On Tuesday, Biden gave what was clearly supposed to be some very stern remarks denouncing Putin for his aggressions in Ukraine. Unfortunately, his handlers had clearly neglected to put him down for his afternoon nap beforehand:
On Thursday, Biden further demonstrated an utter lack of resolve by telling reporters he had no idea if Putin was going to nuke the U.S. and didn’t feel like addressing the critical question on China’s potential involvement in the escalating conflict.
