Then there’s Fox News’ jaw-dropping drone footage this week showing thousands upon thousands of illegal aliens amassed at the international bridge in Del Rio, Texas.
And how did the administration respond? By banning drone flights overhead.
Because it isn’t a crisis if you hide it from the public.
Problem is, much like Ron DeSantis, the state of Texas isn’t rolling over when old Joe plays the bully. The Texas Department of Public Safety sent Fox reporter Bill Melugin back up overhead in one of their helicopters.
Beach Blanket Biden even managed to **** off the French this week. Who knew that was possible? The administration squeezed the French out of a plan with England and Australia, then coopted a submarine deal the French had with the Aussies.
The French are so angry with President “Diplomacy is Back” that, for the first time in history, they recalled their US Ambassador.
Biden is so bad at this, he even succeeds in getting a country famous for surrendering to punch back.
Rather than stay in Washington to deal with the mounting blunders of his own making, Joe Biden scampers off to Rehoboth Beach to hide.
Now, I get it. We all know Joe Biden isn’t really in charge. But you’d think the White House would at least create the pretense that he is.
I mean, when a US Senator in a televised hearing this very week asks Secretary of State Antony Blinken who the hell is in charge, don’t you think the administration would make at least some effort to create the optics necessary to counter the suspicion that Biden is an empty, useless husk?
But no! They let him scamper away to Rehoboth Beach.
Fact is, nobody is in charge.
As Kurt Schlichter pointed out in a column a couple months ago:
[W]hat we have here seems to be a patchwork quilt of bureaucrats, politicos, and social media blue checks each pushing individual fetishes instead of their awful agenda as a whole. The result is not just chaos– ah, glorious chaos– but the ham-handed way they are going about it is also energizing we normals’ resistance.
And we got a heaping helping of that chaos this week, didn’t we?
But not just this week. It’s been nothing but nonstop chaos for a month. Ever since Biden went into hiding at Camp David while Kabul fell, there has been an endless parade of chaos coming from this White House. And so long as the country lacks a President, this chaos will be as predictable as Joe Biden’s trips to the beach.
