Top O’ the Briefing
Happy Friday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. The man alone in a cranberry field worries not about the price of galoshes.
It’s important to keep reminding ourselves that we are, in fact, not crazy. After all, we’re living in a time when the seemingly pervasive mainstream media keeps insisting that what we can plainly see with our eyes and hear with our ears isn’t really happening.
We knew during the 2020 presidential campaign that Joe Biden was in decline. It was difficult to get a bead on exactly how mushy his brain had gotten for a couple of reasons. The first is that even at the peak of his mental acuity when he was younger, Joe Biden was far from being the sharpest tool in the shed. The second is that the pandemic gave his handlers and his nakedly ambitious wife an opportunity to hide him in his basement for most of the campaign.
Once he was installed in the Oval Office it wasn’t that easy to keep Ol’ Gropes away from the eyes of the public anymore. There are two kinds of eyes that have been watching him for the past 15 months: those that are greatly disturbed by what we see and those that keep deluding themselves into thinking Grandpa Joe is just fine. As we have seen time and again, the hacks in the MSM are willing to rush in and explain away Biden’s ever-more embarrassing behavior.
Matt wrote about Biden’s latest trip to the Land of Confusion, which was a real doozy:
How much more evidence do you need that Joe Biden doesn’t know what’s going on around him?
On Thursday morning, Biden was asked by a reporter about Title 42, the Trump-era pandemic restriction allowing agents to expel migrants at the border over health concerns, and he apparently confused it with the recent ruling that the federal transportation mask mandate was unlawful.
“On Title 42, sir, are you considering delaying lifting Title 42?”
“No, what I’m considering is continuing to hear from my, uh, my, first of all, there’s going to be an appeal by the Justice Department,” he said, in reference to the mask mandate.
He’s jumbling two things here that aren’t remotely connected, which makes it disturbing enough. If he would have caught himself and gotten back on track it would have merely been a bad situation. Sadly, when Biden takes these mental detours he rarely gets back to the main road.
More from Matt:
As if getting Title 42 and the mask mandate confused wasn’t enough, from there, Biden’s word salad gets even worse. “Because as a matter of principle, we want to be able to be in a position where if in fact, it is strongly concluded by the scientists that we need Title 42 that we’d be able to do that,” he said.
“But there has been no decision on extending Title 42, Thank you.”
During the campaign, I kept mentioning that Biden must not have anyone who really loves him. I was mostly talking about his wife, of course. The United States is being subjected to this misery because Jill Biden is power-hungry and wasn’t in a position to grab any herself. She doesn’t care how history remembers her husband’s presidency
She has no qualms whatsoever about seeing her husband humiliate himself in public as he did when his old buddy Barack came back to the White House and left him wandering around looking for a friend.
