Remember when Obama said we should “never underestimate Joe Biden’s ability to eff things up?” Well, he was right about that one thing.
This weekend Biden had another internationally embarrassing incident where -between angry George Bush levels of squinting and weirdly timed yelling- he spoke about Vladimir Putin, saying “for god sakes this man cannot remain in power.”
This comment was immediately taken to mean the President of the United States was open to overthrowing the Russian president. Which, you know, could cause a global war in the current climate which is already pretty fragile.
The White House communications staff -who really just hate their jobs more than anyone- attempted to walk back his comments, explaining that “The President’s point was that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region. He was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia, or regime change.”
While Biden’s long record of absolutely insane comments makes this kind of thing easy to excuse as a dementia patient’s rambling…
This is still so, so bad.
WORDS MATTER! Especially when you’re dealing with a potential nuclear war.
And with Joe’s horrific record in international affairs, we know America can’t really afford to taunt anyone right now. Afghanistan was bad enough! We don’t need Joe Biden in charge of conflict in Russia.
Someone has got to put sleepy Joe down for a nap.
