The latest Bi-weekly Big Blast of Biden Boobery© is a real humdinger of a doozy of a dilly.
President Biden was accused of being disrespectful after he quickly exited the East Room of the White House before the conclusion of a Medal of Honor ceremony honoring a Vietnam War veteran on Tuesday.
Biden, 80, abruptly left the ceremony after fastening the nation’s highest military decoration around the neck of retired Army Capt. Larry Taylor, 81, before the closing benediction was read by Chaplain Brig. Gen. William Green Jr.
Military veterans slammed Biden afterward, arguing that the commander in chief showed a startling lack of respect.
Oh, did they ever. It’s a joy to behold, a bona fide laff riot.
“Pardon my French…But what a f—ing idiot. The continuous lack of respect Biden has for anyone is appalling. Hawaii, Service members, active shooter victims, the list goes on,” former Navy SEAL and podcast host Shawn Ryan tweeted after Biden’s hasty exit.
“At least he didn’t check his watch this time,” Rep. Wesley Hunt (R-Texas), an Army veteran, snarked on X, formerly known as Twitter.
He was referencing when Biden appeared to glance at his timepiece during a solemn ceremony for the 13 US troops killed in an August 2021 terror attack near the Kabul airport in Afghanistan.
Some questioned whether Biden’s sudden departure was pre-planned or another case of the doddering leader being unsure of where to go after giving public remarks.
“Do you think this was done on purpose or just is it more senile moments? I think the guy is so self-absorbed he makes blunders like this. God this man is a massive embarrassment to our nation,” Gun Owners of America State Director for Indiana Tim Harmsen mused in a tweet.
The White House did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.
Yeah, I just bet not. Gonna have to break out the plus-sized broom to get this one adequately swept under the rug and forgotten. Note ye well, too, that Biden is 80 years old, and senile, decrepit, and generally unfit for the office he stole. CAPT Taylor, on the other hand, is…81, and from all appearances is a damned sight more hale, hearty, and competent than the nominal CinC. At least Taylor seemed to be aware of where he was and what he was supposed to doing there, unlike certain other grifting, grafting morons in the immediate vicinity we might name.
But who knows; let’s cut the Putative PoTUS© a little slack here. He probably faced a daunting (for him) climb of two or three low steps to get to wherever his handlers had told him he was to go next, and knew he’d need a minute or three to work up a good head of steam so’s he could have a ghost of a chance at successfully negotiating ‘em.
Oh, and about my post title…
Update! Is there more, and worse? Hey, remember who it is we’re talking about here, people.
I’m sure you all cringed when you heard White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre announce on Tuesday that in light of recent events, Joe Biden would begin masking again.
“President Biden tested negative last night for COVID-19 and tested negative again today. He’s not experiencing any symptoms,” she said during Tuesday’s press briefing. “As far as the steps that he is taking: Since the President was with the First Lady yesterday, he will be masking while indoors and around people in alignment with CDC guidance. And as — as has been the practice in the past, the President will remove his mask when sufficiently distanced from others indoors and while outside as well.”
Oh, but wait, this is COVID we’re talking about, and as the pandemic showed, many in government who were perfectly fine imposing restrictions on the masses weren’t exactly keen on following themselves.
Later that very day, Biden briefly participated in a Medal of Honor ceremony for a Vietnam veteran. He did enter the ceremony wearing a mask but pulled it off immediately before getting close to the elderly honoree. Biden then proceeded to mingle with a crowd of people with his naked face.
Biden’s hypocrisy on this is by no means surprising. On his first day in office, Biden and his entire family violated Biden’s mask mandate for federal buildings mere hours after he signed it.
At the time, his then-press secretary Jen Psaki insisted that his executive order was about sending a message to the public. “I think he was celebrating an evening of a historic day for our country. And certainly, he signed the mask mandate because it’s a way to send a message to the American public about the importance of wearing masks, how it can save tens of thousands of lives,” Psaki said.
I suspect nothing has changed.
Of course it hasn’t. Why would it, pray tell? It’s all working out exactly as TPTB intended it to all along. As Reynolds always says: I’ll believe it’s a crisis when the people who are telling me it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.
