Nick Arama at RedState.com parses the latest bizarre pronouncement from our commander-in-chief.
Sometimes, I listen to Joe Biden–and all I can think is: he is one weird dude.
He was asked on Friday if he would be visiting the site of the train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, and his response was bizarre. He said he did a “whole video,” and he couldn’t remember that it was a “Zoom” video.
“Zoom. All I can hear every time I think of Zoom is that song of my generation, ‘Who’s Zoomin’ Who?’” Biden babbled.
Yikes. At this point, he’s just not a serious person; he seems completely out of it. You have a disaster in East Palestine, and that’s how he’s responding?
He had a chance to reach out to the folks in East Palestine, to show Americans that he cared. It would even have been advantageous to him politically had he done it. Yet, he couldn’t do it. Even now, more than three weeks later, he’s saying he’s done so much because he made a Zoom call and spent two hours with his Cabinet.
Biden then did an interview with ABC’s David Muir where he was asked about East Palestine. Biden claimed that he couldn’t remember if he talked to the mayor but he talked to everyone else.
Then Muir asked him if he was running again. He said that he would have to check with his wife, which I think was supposed to be a joke, but probably there’s also a lot of truth there as well. At this point, I think he doesn’t know what he’s doing unless his handlers tell him. But he said there were too many other things he had to deal with in the near term, before he started a campaign.
His wife said that pretty much the only thing they had to work out was where he was going to announce running again.
