By now, everyone is talking about one of the biggest bungles of Biden’s disastrous press conference: his effective greenlight to Putin to undergo a “minor incursion” into Ukraine.
Or, more accurately, Biden suggested the White House would do nothing if Putin engaged in a “minor incursion” against Ukraine, with no indication whatsoever as to what constitutes “minor.”
Needless to say, the world took notice. Quickly.
Including Ukrainian President Zelenskyy, who rapidly replied to Biden’s misfire.
“We want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations,” Zenenskyy stated in an all but direct retort to Biden.
“Just as there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones,” Zelenskyy added pointedly.
Apparently, even American media outlets are interested, given that none other than Ms. Kamala Harris was given a grilling by NBC “Today” host Savvanah Guthrie.
Unsurprisingly, one of the first matters Guthrie addressed was the apparent greenlight that Biden gave Putin, which Harris did not take kindly to.
“The president has been very clear and we as the United States are very clear, if Putin takes aggressive action, we are prepared to levy serious costs, period,” Harris snapped, “and I will tell you that part of the posture that we have taken is grounded in the respect and the value we place in …”
“I’m sorry to interrupt … I’m sorry to interrupt. But it is less than clear,” Guthrie broke in, “thirty minutes after the news conference, the White House press secretary had to actually clarify the president’s remarks.”
Guthrie was undoubtedly referring to Psaki’s harried statement, issued mere moments after Biden’s latest doozy.
“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,” Psaki proclaimed immediately after Biden’s fiasco of a press conference ended.
Given that the White House Pres Secretary issued significant clarifications immediately after Biden finished speaking, it is quite clear that quite a few things are turning rotten in the state of Denmark, to borrow a famous phrase from the now-politically incorrect Shakespeare, not only due to his apparent lack of “diversity,” but likely also due to his propensity for highlighting governmental corruption.
Of which Harris is a stellar example, though she apparently gets rattled by rather predictable interview questions.
Hint to Harris: When uninformed about the topics at hand, a little humility would go a long way.
Alas, the visibly frustrated vice president apparently couldn’t contain her clear ire against Guthrie, regardless of poorly that response appeared.
“I’m being clear with you right now,” Harris retorted, “and so if you’re interested, I’ll continue to be clear.”
By all means, Ms. Vice President. Dazzle us with your “clarity.”
“I will repeat myself, and I’m vice president of the United States, and the president and I work closely together, and I know his position because he’s been consistent in that regard,” Harris huffed, “if Vladimir Putin and Russia takes aggressive action, it will be met with a cost that will be severe.”
Well, one thing is clear: Harris is clearly feeling rather inept in her office; otherwise, why spend over half her commentary reiterating that she’s the vice president, not to mention the fact that she “works” with the president?
Eh, one would expect the vice president to work with the president? What would she like? A gold star? A participation trophy? Aren’t all those “equitable” rewards a bit before Harris’s generation?
Either that, or Ms. Harris is growing edgy over the fact that a federal takeover of elections has not yet occurred in time for the midterm elections, which would explain why Biden effectively proclaimed that the 2022 elections may not be fair if his bill doesn’t pass. Rather ironic, to say the least.
Needless to say, Guthrie also sought “clarity” on that major issue as well.
“[The president] openly cast doubt on whether the 2022 midterm elections would be legitimate. He said it all depends, which is astonishing to hear a president question whether our elections will be legitimate. We’ve heard it before, but not from this president. Is he really concerned that we may not have fair and free elections?” Guthrie inquired incredulously.
And what does the illustrious Harris do?
Well, rather than answer the question directly, the vice president apparently decided that replying with an effective advertisement for the voting “rights” bill.
Harris’s avoidance was so remarkably obvious that Guthrie queried once again.
“But the specific question, if you don’t mind, does he think now that these bills haven’t been passed that the ’22 midterms won’t be legitimate or fair or free?” Guthrie pressed.
Apparently, Harris did “mind,” as she dodged Guthrie entirely.
But remember, Harris’s ailing poll numbers are due to “racism.”
