This week Joe Biden offered a rare opportunity for the press to ask him questions, and even though they appeared to be screened, the White House’s resident managed to upset both establishment Republicans and members of his own party.
These are only a few of the gaffes from Joe Biden’s two hour press conference:
2022 midterms will be fraudulent unless Dems win (they lost)
Among other bizarre claims and statements, Biden suggested that the 2022 midterm elections – and the 2024 presidential election – could be fraudulent and illegitimate if his party is not given federal control of the nation’s election system.
““I’m not saying it’s going to be legit. The increase in the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these reforms passed,” said Biden. He added, “It all depends on whether or not we’re able to make the case to the American people that some of this is being set up to try to alter the outcome of the election.”
The reforms were not passed. Democrat Sens. Kirsten Sinema and Joe Manchin rebuked Biden and his party, and joined with Republicans to block the party line decision to change the filibuster and allow Democrats unrestrained one party rule.
The remarks were so brazen, and so contrary to now-the typical Democrat condemnations of election fraud claims, that even CNN rebuked Biden for the remark.
Putin “has to do something” (in Ukraine)
Biden appeared to acknowledge that the United States are powerless to stop Vladimir Putin from invading Ukraine, and suggested it is more than a possibility, but rather an inevitability.
“I’m not so sure he is certain what he’s going to do. My guess is he will move in, he has to do something,” said Biden. When asked again, he again passed the buck to the Russian president.
According to Biden, it is “totally, solely, completely a Putin decision.”
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki later corrected her boss, the sitting president, and explained what he really meant:
President Biden has been clear with the Russian President: If any Russian military forces move across the Ukrainian border, that’s a renewed invasion, and it will be met with a swift, severe, and united response from the United States and our Allies. President Biden also knows from long experience that the Russians have an extensive playbook of aggression short of military action, including cyberattacks and paramilitary tactics. And he affirmed today that those acts of Russian aggression will be met with a decisive, reciprocal, and united response.
No apologies for bloody Afghanistan disaster
Biden remained defiant on the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal that saw over a dozen members of the United States Armed Forces slain, billions of dollars in equipment surrendered to radical Muslims, and all progress in the country lost.
“Look, let’s take Afghanistan, I know you all would like to focus on that, which is legitimate,” said Biden when confronted with his administration’s many shortcomings.
“I have a great concern for the women and men who were blown up on the line at the airport by a terrorist attack against them,” Biden said.
He then delivered this stream of conscious series of words that National File has reproduced in its entirety: “I think you will who know a lot about foreign policy, that had we stayed and I had not pulled those troops out, we would be asked to put somewhere between 20,000 and 50,000 more troops back in, because the only reason more Americans weren’t being killed than others, is because the last president signed an agreement to get out by May the first, and so everything was copacetic.”

Your grocery stores aren’t empty, peasants. Or, “Let them eat cake!”
As Americans continue to see viral images on social media depicting empty grocery store shelves – something many Americans then confirm when they physically enter the grocery store – Biden claimed that it’s all in their heads.
According to the White House, prior to the pandemic grocery store shelves were 91% full. Now, the regime declares, they are 89% full.
No reason to complain, serfs!
“I have no idea” why Americans think I’m too dumb to be president
Biden was asked why he believes so many Americans are concerned that his mental fitness is not up to the tasks of the Oval Office.
“I have no idea,” Biden admitted.
