Democrat President Joe Biden presented the American public a new self-embarrassment episode, one of his regular type, yet a fresh one considering it had been a good three days after his previous viral gaffe from last Friday.
Biden was speaking at the headquarters of FEMA (the Federal Emergency Management Agency) where he was announcing plans to increase twofold government spending on readiness to tackle extreme weather, according to CNBC.
The president’s appearance at FEMA’s main office was seemingly designed to accomplish two goals.
First, he was there to make another vast government spending pitch of what already become the overarching rule of his administration with his gigantic and lavish state expenditure packages, but this time by way of utilizing the need for inclement weather preparedness.
Biden thus categorically argued that the time to double FEMA funding was right now, ahead of the upcoming season of natural disasters in America, such as wildfires and hurricanes.
Second, the FEMA headquarters was supposed to be a great chance to underscore Biden’s push for boosting tremendously climate change spending.
Having just issued an executive order to federal bodies to look into financial risks with respect to both the public institutions and the private sector, in his rather brief comments, Biden emphasized the new funding was going to aid “overlooked” communities and offer protection from future “climate events.”
Biden - The Champion of making himself look foolish
It was at this point that Biden fell into a sequence of several disjointed, incomplete sentences involving incoherent mentions of “families”, “efforts”, “help”, “lessons”, “roads” and “streets”, interspersed with lots of stuttering and pauses.
And all of that was while looking at his own notes, as though he literally got lost in them.
Nonetheless, Monday’s gaffe on part of the current US President was less significant than the two viral blunders on Friday, which came during a joint briefing with Moon Jae-in, the President of important US ally South Korea.
The highlight of the Biden – Moon press briefing was expected to be a demonstration of a decisive joint will to issue a stern warning to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un amid intelligence reports that his rogue state dictatorship is approaching the development of a nuclear armed ICBM capable of striking the US mainland.
Instead, what Biden did was mix up joint efforts on building a secure 5G mobile network with what he mentioned as the G-5.
The G-5 itself is a group of emerging economies consisting of China, India, Brazil, Mexico, and South Africa modeled after the G-7, the group of the largest industrialized economies, which includes the United States.
Obviously, the 5G technology and the G-5 have nothing to do with each other.
Later on Friday, while he was awarding the Medal of Honor to a Korean War veteran, Ralph Puckett, 94, Biden mistook the job of South Korean President Moon by referring to him as “Prime Minister.”
Just a day earlier, on Thursday, the Democrat President referred to Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu as “President” of Israel.
While Friday’s Biden gaffes occurred when he was improvising, the one on Thursday occurred with a teleprompter, and the latest one, on Monday, as the President was starting in his own notes on a piece of paper.
