After Joe Biden’s inauguration, instead of referring to Biden as “President Biden,” Kurt Schlichter began using an asterisk – as in “President *.”
It makes me chuckle.
Truth is, I had planned to use an asterisk as well – namely President* Biden.
But when Schlichter went the asterisk route, I decided it would be rude to do the same thing. So I went with a superscripted laughing emoji instead – as in President🤣 Biden.
Because you have to admit, it is kind of funny that Joe Biden actually thinks he’s the President of the United States.
Kurt’s asterisk is there to convey the doubt surrounding the legitimacy of Biden’s election.
My superscripted laughing emoji is there to convey, not just how hilariously unlikely it is that this old soup-for-brains doofus got over 80 million votes, but also how laughable it is that Joe Biden believes he is actually President and Commander-in-Chief.
I think the only person who isn’t aware that President Laughing Emoji Asterisk is President-in-Name-Only is President🤣 * himself.
Yesterday it was reported that, in the last one hundred years, old Laughing Emoji Asterisk has gone the longest without a press conference. It’s been 43 days, and Joe still has not stood at the podium and taken questions from reporters.
Before President🤣 Asterisk, the longest a newly inaugurated President went before holding a formal press conference was 33 days (GW Bush).
They’re keeping a lid on old Lid Man. And with good reason.
I’ve said before, his only job is to pick up a pen and sign his name to the Executive Orders written by the folks who are actually in charge.
But I don’t think old Joe knows that’s his only job.
I think he truly does believe he’s the Top Dog, the Big Guy, the President. And, he might not remember much, but Joe remembers that Presidents take questions from reporters.
If I had to guess, I’d say the folks in charge of the Biden Administration are hoping to run out the clock and keep the barely-there old codger under wraps until their VP is ready to step into the role.
Behind the scenes, the people actually running the Presidency are no doubt giving Kamala a crash course in how to pretend to be in charge while staying out of the way of the people who actually are in charge.
Once they feel Kamala has a good handle on being a malleable figurehead, they will begin work on the 25th Amendment.
And Joe Biden’s asterisk with become a period.
In the meantime, they’ll keep him hidden, trotting him out in only the most controlled setting, and quickly hurrying him away before he says something insane.
And if that isn’t possible, they’ll keep Jill glued to President Laughing Emoji Asterisk’s side to field the harder questions for him (which, in reality, is pretty much any question other than “what’s your favorite ice cream?”).
No wonder Joe has gone the longest without giving a press conference. I mean, what’s he going to do – make Jill stand beside him at the podium and field the questions on his behalf?
This is why Nancy Pelosi has not extended an invitation for old Asterisk Joe to deliver a State of the Union address. Americans might suspect something ain’t right when the unelected First Lady of the United States is up there pinch-hitting for her desiccated, brain-scrambled husband.
Besides, having Kamala sitting directly behind him with an eager, evil grin plastered on her face would be tremendously bad optics.
The truth is, Joe Biden is no more the President than Barack Obama was. Like Obama before him, Joe merely occupies the Oval Office while the actual running of the country is outsourced to unelected career bureaucrats.
The difference, of course, is Obama understood his role as figurehead, and could be totally trusted to play the game.
Barack was more than content giving lofty speeches, taking lavish vacations, golfing with his buddies, and flying to the coast to dance with Ellen. He was always in it for the perks, not the work.
Old brain-addled Joe doesn’t have the cognitive abilities to understand the game. And he absolutely cannot be trusted to know his place. Plus, he has a tendency to get agitated and belligerent, not to mention blurt out unbelievably racist remarks.
For over thirty years, Joe Biden longed to be President of the United States. And like a naïve child, Joe thinks that day has come and he is the guy in charge.
But he isn’t. Even if his mind wasn’t gone, he wouldn’t be in charge.
And the people who are in charge are keeping him hidden — hoping the American people don’t notice that President Asterisk has lost what little is left of his mind.
Because if Americans wise up to the fact that Biden isn’t the one calling the shots, they just might realize that the Presidency is no longer run by the person they elect. And our getting wise to that is the last thing these unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats want.
