The other day, Joe Biden decided a Democrat fundraiser was the perfect opportunity to bring up nuclear Armageddon.
Nothing complements a rubber chicken fundraiser quite like a side of Armageddon.
For a guy who loves to say, “that’s not hyperbole,” there’s never been an occasion where Joe Biden won’t engage in hyperbole.
During his remarks at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee reception in New York on Thursday, Biden had this to say:
“Think about it: We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis. We’ve got a guy I know fairly well; his name is Vladimir Putin. I spent a fair amount of time with him. He is not joking when he talks about the potential use of tactical and nuclear weapons, or biological or chemical weapons, because his military is, you might say, significantly underperforming.”
As Becket Adams added on Twitter:
“Anyway, be sure to make those checks out to the DNC and enjoy the chicken.”
There’s a time and a place to address the prospect of Putin using nuclear weapons, but a campaign fundraiser at a private residence in New York City is not one of them.
If Joe Biden was actually the President of the United States, this is the kind of thing he’d say in a nationally televised address.
But not this guy. Nope. He used his nationally-televised address to engage in over-the-top hyperbole to portray his political opposition as a threat to our Republic and saved the nuclear threat from Russia for a campaign fundraiser.
But let’s pretend for a moment that it is an appropriate venue to warn that we are on the cusp of nuclear war for the first time since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
If Vladimir Putin feels emboldened enough to threaten nukes, what does that say about Joe Biden’s track record as President of the United States?
Is it really a campaign selling point for the Democrats that the Democrat President has ushered us to the brink of Armageddon for the first time in sixty years? Especially when you consider that this Democrat President is the same guy who, ten years ago, mugged for the cameras and laughed like a hyena when Paul Ryan brought up Russia during the Vice Presidential Debate.
What’s truly astounding about his Armageddon talk at this fundraiser, however, is that Biden used it as a cudgel to attack … you guessed it … the previous administration:
“I didn’t realize how much serious damage the last administration did to our relationships around the world. The America First policies put us basically last.”
As Byron York observed in the Washington Examiner:
If the worst happens, Joe Biden will be pointing fingers till the end.
Yes, I can totally picture Joe Biden being herded into the White House bunker as Kyiv is enveloped in a mushroom cloud whining to Jill, “It’s that damn Trump’s fault! And OPEC!”
He’ll be sitting in the bunker while the Joint Chiefs brief him, muttering like the guy from Chernobyl, “We did everything right. We did everything right.”
This is the same man who, before the 2020 election, was boasting that Vladimir Putin was shaking in his boots at the prospect of a Joe Biden presidency:
Yes sir. Putin didn’t want him in the White House because Joe was going to stand up to him.
And yet once Biden was in the White House, Putin began amassing troops along the border with Ukraine.
Joe strutted around for weeks before the invasion talking about those super tough sanctions and how Putin better think again because, boy, no hyperbole, those sanctions were going to cripple him. Not a joke, folks. Putin better not test old Joe. No one fucks with a Biden.
If we stand on the brink of Armageddon nearly two years into his presidency, isn’t it fair to say Joe Biden has been a complete and utter failure?
Joe’s delusional tough-guy talk both before the election and before the invasion did nothing to stop Putin from ordering Russian forces into Ukraine.
And after Putin did it, how did Joe respond?
Joe said at Thursday’s fundraiser, “We’ve got a guy I know fairly well; his name is Vladimir Putin. I spent a fair amount of time with him.”
If he knows Putin so well, shouldn’t he know that Vladimir Putin is a wee bit more than a “bully?”
As I wrote the day after Russia invaded:
Bullies will knock your lunch tray out of your hand and leave you to clean up the mess while the rest of the kids in the cafeteria laugh at you. They’ll yank your pants down when you’re walking to class or take your books from your hand and throw them in the toilet.
What bullies don’t do is invade a sovereign nation and bring Europe to the brink of war. That’s a bit beyond their field of expertise.
It finally dawns on this idiot that Vladimir Putin is more than a bully, and he chooses a rubber chicken fundraiser to point it out?
This is not a serious man.
And if he actually believes this to be true, he shouldn’t be at a fundraiser right now. He should be back at the WH figuring out how to improve the situation.— AG (@AGHamilton29) October 7, 2022
It should come as no surprise that President “Not Hyperbole” bringing up nuclear Armageddon at a Democrat fundraiser did more than just raise a few eyebrows.
And as is always the case when this loose-lipped idiot drops a rhetorical bomb, the White House Office of What He Meant to Say had to come in and clean up the fallout:
Joe Biden has always been a reckless big-mouth. He has always lacked the intelligence, seriousness, and competence to lead. But he is so full of arrogance and vanity that he lacks the self-awareness to realize just how far over his head he is.
And if Armageddon comes knocking, it will be Joe Biden who opens the door.
