Speculation has swirled in the media as President Joe Biden’s frequent slips of the tongue continue throughout his tenure, in tandem with the role of First Lady Jill Biden nearly overshadowing that of her husband and Vice President Kamala Harris being tasked with controlling the crisis at the southern border — one of this nation’s most pressing issues.
“Joe Biden, though, is the granddad of the country, and when you listen to Granddad, sometimes you wonder whether it’s safe for him to be near a pair of scissors,” Smith posted in an opinion piece for the New York Post.
“No big deal, though; it’s just that there’s this guy who looks like he’d have trouble using Google Maps and he happens to be in charge of all the nukes,” he sarcastically noted. “On the rare occasions when Biden’s staff let him out of the dayroom to be seen on camera, pre-selected members of the press ask him the gentlest conceivable questions and then wind up cringing anyway as Biden gives one unnerving display after another.”
“Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin must watch these press conferences giggling uncontrollably at their good fortune: Suddenly the world’s greatest power is in the hands of a slightly dazed-looking fellow who seems like he is always just waking up from heavy anesthesia,” Smith wrote.
The writer noted of three recent Biden-slips that, he emphasized, had occurred within mere moments of each other — namely his bizarre whispering during a press conference, referring to Latinos as the offensive left-wing buzzword “Latinx,” and confusing the Tuskegee Airmen with the victims of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, which Smith said is “about as dumb as confusing coronavirus with Corona beer.”
“Biden is suffering from what nursing home workers delicately refer to as ‘personality changes,’” Smith urged. “You get the feeling his aides spend a solid week coaching him in advance before letting him speak, which is why he keeps saying things like, ‘I’m going to get in trouble with staff.’ Never before have we had a president who so openly feared his own minders. Who is making the decisions?”
Then comes Jill Biden’s enhanced role. PJ Media noted Monday:
It was reported on Sunday that Joe Biden will not be attending the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics on July 23. Instead, he is sending his wife, Jill Biden. While this might not sound like a big deal, the devil is in the details. According to the report, Jill Biden “holding a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga [is] among the possible events the two governments are looking into.”
“In addition to other incidents that have raised questions about Biden’s mental health and whether he is really running things, sending Jill Biden to have diplomatic meetings with an ally seems particularly suspicious,” the post emphasized.
The First Lady and POTUS have acknowledged this, too, as a recently published Vogue puff-piece outlined (emphasis added):
The December debate over titles seems awfully small in the face of all of this: Jill Biden opening schools, visiting vaccination sites, traveling to red states to sell the American Rescue Plan, telling folks that “help is here.” The role she’s fulfilling on these visits is, in many ways, neither first lady nor professor but a key player in her husband’s administration, a West Wing surrogate and policy advocate.
Moreover, Biden complained to Vogue of the couple’s limited time together, noting that while he’s working on an important speech, so is his wife.
And then comes the role of Vice President Kamala Harris. Just weeks after Biden took office, it was reported that Harris was taking calls with foreign leaders on Biden’s behalf. The Daily Wire reported:
[In February], the Veep had a telephone call with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and spoke to the World Health Organization Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in January.
As noted by the Post, Harris’ predecessor Vice President Mike Pence “occasionally spoke directly by phone with foreign leaders, but that role generally was performed by former President Donald Trump, especially last year.”
“A review of press notices from Pence’s final year in office reveals no readouts of direct calls with the leaders of foreign nations,” the Post added.
Additionally, Harris has been tasked with manning the crisis at the southern border, a hurdle so high for the nation that states like Nebraska, Florida, and South Dakota have pledged troop support for border states like Texas and Arizona.
Notably, Harris has been widely criticized for her delayed and poor handling of the growing crisis.
