Joe Biden’s White House staff has worn bare the soles of their shoes, walking back the list of dunderheaded things he’s said. They’ve even walked back the statement that “no one’s walking back any of Biden’s statements.”
It has felt like "the weekly walk back" over the more than twenty months that have passed since Biden began his term in office. Does anyone genuinely want to know why a U.S. President has experienced this more frequently than we can count? Does Joe Biden genuinely not understand what he is trying to say?
Or is he failing to follow directions because of his obvious cognitive decline? We have all witnessed Joe Biden reading off his teleprompter on numerous occasions. Even worse, he continues to declare things that his staff does not agree are part of US policy.
Many of these are extremely dangerous to U.S. national security. Biden keeps insisting that any Chinese aggression towards Taiwan will trigger U.S. armed forces into action. That is not the stated U.S. policy. While we will provide military assistance, nowhere are troops mentioned.
If Joe Biden is trying to pick a fight with the second-most powerful military in the world, he’s doing a nice job. During the early stages of Vladimir Putin’s attack on Ukraine, Biden made the same types of idle threats. Has he really lost it, or does he want to get the U.S. into a war?
Some experts believe the latter. But Biden’s most recent public proclamation has the liberal left in full meltdown mode. On Sunday evening, Biden sat down for his first interview with the press in over 200 days. Anyone can see why after watching him fumble for answers.
He never seems to be able to escape these one-on-one encounters without making multiple stupid statements. The White House staff must be poised with pen and paper, ready to make a list of corrections. It happens every single time. It’s both sad and frightening.
During his CBS 60 Minutes interview with Scott Pelley, Biden was asked about where America is in its battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. The next words out of Biden’s mouth sent shockwaves through his liberal cronies.
Joe Biden, apparently now assuming the role of “Mr. Science himself,” the soon-to-be-departing Anthony Fauci, said pointblank, “The pandemic is over.” Anyone watching the interview had to sit with their mouths agape, staring at the TV. Many were shocked. The left went nuts.
With people still being forced to get vaccinated, young children being smothered with unnecessary masks, flight restrictions on all unvaccinated Americans, and more, no one could have sensed that Biden would utter those words. The liberal backlash was instantaneous.
Just a few weeks prior, Biden proclaimed that the “COVID emergency” was his excuse to wipe away trillions of student loan debt. On Sunday night, liberals immediately lost their collective minds. Even the left’s trusted liberal rags tore into Biden for declaring the “pandemic is over.”
Right on cue, the White House staff had to feverishly start to “walk back” another sleepy Joe blunder. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre blamed it on all the “shiny cars” at the Detroit Car Show, where Biden held part of the interview. Maybe that wasn’t the best location.
WH @PressSec says Biden didn't actually mean the Covid pandemic is over despite saying it: "Just to step back for a second, when he made those comments, he was walking through the Detroit car show, the halls of the Detroit car show, he was looking around." pic.twitter.com/JUMzkkA1P8

Of all the presidents in U.S. history, Biden has made more gaffs and spit out more ignorant statements than any other. But he’s not yet halfway through his term. God help us all. When is Joe Biden finally going to say something that puts all Americans at risk?
In respect to any potential Chinese/Taiwan conflict, he may well already have. Biden’s statement about the pandemic being over might have been forgivable if the wording was ambiguous. However, there was no room for misinterpretation.
Once again, Joe Biden opened his mouth and triggered the White House staff to go into “clean up on aisle 3” mode. If this didn’t happen so frequently, it might be understandable as an accident. But for Joe Biden, it’s just another “weekly walk back.”
