Biden Says He’s Not Walking Back Comments About Putin Staying in Power, Claims it was ‘Personal Outrage,’ Not Policy (VIDEO)

Joe Biden on Monday outlined his 2023 budget proposal to Congress with his OMB Director Shalanda Young in tow.

Biden took some questions from reporters after his remarks.

NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell asked Joe Biden if he regrets saying Russian President Vladimir Putin shouldn’t remain in power.

Joe Biden gave what the White House billed as a “major address” Saturday evening in Warsaw, Poland.

Biden closed his speech with what is either a policy change or a gaffe just like his comment on Friday to U.S. troops they were headed into Ukraine.

Biden said, “For God’s sake, this man [Putin] cannot remain in power.”

Biden’s handlers immediately went into clean up mode and ‘clarified’ Biden’s regime change remarks.

According to Axios and Washington Post, Biden’s last line calling for Putin to be taken out was not on his teleprompter.

So Dementia Joe just blurted it out and escalated tensions with a nuclear power for no good reason.

“Do you believe what you said that Putin can’t remain in power, or do you now regret saying that because your government has been trying to walk that back? Does you words complicate matters?” NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell asked Biden.

Side note: Since when is the White House a separate entity from Joe Biden?

“I’m not walking anything back,” Biden said before admitting he has no control over his emotions. “I was expressing moral outrage I felt toward the way Putin is dealing… and the actions of this man – just brutality… half the children in Ukraine — but I want to make it clear, I wasn’t then nor am I now articulating a policy change..”

Biden said he ‘makes no apologies’ for expressing his ‘personal feelings’ on Putin.

VIDEO: Joe Biden Can Barely Walk – Waddles Through the Halls Smiling Like an Idiot at NATO Meetings

America is a non-factor on the global stage.

On Thursday Joe Biden arrived in Brussels for talks with NATO Countries on the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The meetings were mostly for show. Everyone knows NATO is not going to get involved in a war with Russia.

Joe Biden waddled through the halls barely able to walk. This is America today. From Reagan to Trump… to this smiling idiot nobody takes seriously.

Biden smiled but took no questions.

Once again, America was absent at the tables. The imposter sat in. Thank goodness the Europeans do not have to face any mean tweets or a US president demanding they pay their fair share.

Psaki Humiliates Biden With Her Excuse For His Latest Gaffe: Just Something He Saw on Television

White House press secretary Jen Psaki gave a rather disconcerting answer when asked why President Joe Biden had suddenly decided to call Russian President Vladimir Putin a war criminal.

After Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed Congress on Wednesday via video, Biden announced new U.S. military assistance that would be going to the besieged nation.

Following his announcement, Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich asked Biden if Putin is a war criminal, given everything the president has seen. Zelenskyy’s presentation to Congress had included a powerful video highlighting the devastation of the war.

Biden first responded, “No.”

He then continued making his way through the room, but soon thereafter returned to the journalist, asked for clarification and answered, “Oh, I think he is a war criminal.”

Later in the day, Psaki was asked during a news briefing what accounted for the change. The administration had previously said only that Putin was under investigation for potential war crimes.

Psaki replied that it was the news coverage Biden watched on TV that informed his answer.

“The president’s remarks speak for themselves,” she said. “He was speaking from his heart and speaking from what he’s seen on television, which is barbaric actions by a brutal dictator through his invasion of a foreign country.”

“There is a legal process that continues to … be underway at the State Department. That’s a process that they would have any updates on,” the press secretary said.

Later in the briefing, a reporter circled back to the issue, noting that Biden had declined to call Putin a war criminal during the first three weeks of the conflict.

“As you note, there is an ongoing … formal process before you can use this term. So something must have changed for the president to feel like he can take this additional step today. What? What else is he seeing?” she asked.

Psaki again referenced media coverage of the invasion.

“The president was answering a direct question that was asked and responding to what he has seen on television,” she said.

“We have all seen barbaric acts, horrific acts by a foreign dictator in a country that is threatening and taking the lives of civilians, impacting hospitals, women who are pregnant, journalists, others,” Psaki continued. “I think he was answering a direct question.”

Biden likely isn’t watching Fox News, so our foreign policy is being informed by what commentators on MSNBC and CNN are saying? God help us.

Doesn’t the commander in chief have a multibillion-dollar intelligence apparatus to provide him with the most accurate information available?

Conservative commentator Ed Morrissey offered an interesting theory as to why Psaki walked back Biden’s remarks about Putin, and it centers on Iran.

Moscow responded forcefully Wednesday to Biden’s war criminal characterization, calling it “unacceptable and unforgivable” rhetoric, the BBC reported.

Morrissey wrote that Psaki’s official “walk-back at the White House of it being just Biden’s personal view looks like a retreat in the face of Russian complaints. And that might be precisely what it is, because Biden’s still relying on Russia to accommodate Biden’s desperate ambition to re-enter the Iran [nuclear] deal.”

Russia is playing a central role in the talks currently underway in Vienna.

“Rather than recognize the insanity of that foreign policy, Biden and his White House have decided that it makes more sense to accommodate Putin and walk back the obvious,” Morrissey wrote.

We already went through all of this during the Obama administration, with the U.S. bending over backward to accommodate Russia and Iran. Both interpreted America’s conduct as weakness and pressed forward with their mal-behavior, including Russia’s invasion of Crimea in 2014 and Iran’s ongoing support of terrorism.

You would think that Biden and his team — primarily made up of Obama alums like Psaki — would have learned their lesson, but apparently they have not.

As Putin Invades Ukraine, Biden Bumbles Around on Live TV and Says ‘See, Presidents Can’t Do Much’

Isa Cox, The Western Journal

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.
