White House Handlers Scramble To Clean Up Another Biden Blunder

This has been a week of clean-up for the Biden White House which is constantly forced to follow behind the cognitively deficient president and clarify his asinine statements.

Joe Biden’s recent trip to Europe amid an ongoing military conflict between Ukraine and Russia was completely overshadowed by his constant gaffes and malapropisms, especially when he vehemently called for regime change in Russia.

Since then, administration officials and members of the White House communications team have gone on record (on several occasions) to clarify Biden’s inflammatory statements regarding the Eastern European conflict.

Tuesday was no different.

White House communications director Kate Bedingfield (Jen Psaki’s boss?) took to the podium in an effort to convince reporters that no “compromised information” was revealed when Biden suggested U.S. troops are “training” Ukrainian troops in Poland.

After visiting troops in Poland, Biden sparked confusion when he began to describe the scene in Ukraine, telling U.S. troops they’d “see when you’re there [in Ukraine].”

A White House spokesperson soon clarified the president’s remarks, noting that Biden’s “been clear we are not sending U.S. troops to Ukraine and there is no change in that position.”

Biden was pressed on this gaffe during a press conference on Monday. Instead of clarifying his statements, Sloppy Joe sparked more confusion when he said U.S. troops were “helping train the Ukrainian troops.” His “clarification” was a direct contradiction to National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan who said on March 22 that Americans were not “currently” training Ukrainian troops.

Biden’s off-the-cuff comments about “helping train” Ukrainian troops are just the latest in a long line of gaffes that needed explanation.

One notable example came after Biden, speaking in Poland at the end of his trip, declared that Russian President Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power.” A White House official quickly said the president “was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia, or regime change.”

Bedingfield again reiterated that Biden’s regime change comment “didn’t need clarification” and instead was a morale attack on Putin not comment on a specific policy.

What’s happening is an exercise in propaganda. By claiming that Joe Biden is mentally stable, not in decline, and making hard-hitting decisions that affect the entire world, they are testing the nation’s collective threshold for bullshit.

Because this is all bullshit…
