Joe Biden had another special kind of moment with reporters on Saturday as he was doing a victory lap when it comes to the $1.2 trillion infrastructure package passing. In addition to snapping at a reporter and creating even greater confusion over whether or not illegal immigrants will be awarded $450,000, as Landon reported, the president managed to mock not only reporters but the American people as a whole when it comes to the supply chain crisis issues.
A reporter pointed out that “Democratic Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger said of your presidency this week: ‘Nobody elected him to be FDR. They elected him to be normal and stop the chaos'” and then when on to ask “How do you view your mandate after Tuesday’s election losses for Democrats? And is she wrong?”
Biden gave a long and rambling answer. And for someone who accuses the American people of being confused, his answer wasn’t always easy to follow.
“I don’t intend to anybody but Joe Biden. That’s who I am. And what I’m trying to do is do the things that I ran on to do. And, look, people out there are — ordinary, hardworking Americans are really, really — been put through the wringer the last couple years, starting with COVID,” Biden claimed at one point of his answer.
As his lengthy, rambling answer continued on in part:
What — like, for example, if I had — if we were all going out and having lunch together and I said, “Let’s ask whoever the — whoever is at the next table, no matter how — what restaurant we’re in — have them explain the supply chain to us.” You think they’d understand what we’re talking about?
They’re smart people. But supply chain — “Well, why is everything backed up?” Well, it’s backed up because the people who supply the materials that end up being on our kitchen table or in our — in our fam- — our life — guess what? They’re closing those plants because they have COVID. They’re not —
And so, it’s a complicated world that people are facing. We’ve never faced anything like this before. I mean, I’m not saying it’s the worst of every time in American history, but we never faced anything this — this, sort of, defiant of understanding of what’s going on.
And you can understand why people are upset. And I — whether you have a PhD or you’re — or you’re working, you know, in a restaurant, it’s confusing. And so, people are understandably worried. They’re worried.
And so, all I can say is: What I’m going to try to do is explain to the American people, as best I can —
And, by the way, you all write for a living. I haven’t seen any one of you explain the supply chain very well. No, no, I’m not being critical. I’m being deadly earnest. When your editor says, “Explain the supply chain.” Okay? “Lots of luck in your senior year,” as my coach used to say.
Regardless as to if Biden thinks the American people understand the supply chain crisis, or how he claims “I haven’t seen any one of you explain the supply chain very well,” the American people understand enough to know the president is to blame. They’ve rated him poorly for months in the polls and his approval ratings continue to get worse.
A Trafalgar poll from last month found that a majority of likely voters, 53.7 percent of them, have been “per…
