Quote of the Day: President Biden Clears Everything Up

 

And the question is whether or not we should be in a position where you are — why can’t the experts say we know that this virus is, in fact — is going to be — or, excuse me — we know why all the drugs approved are not temporarily approved, but permanently approved. That’s underway, too. I expect that to occur quickly–US President Joseph Biden, July 21, 2021

Last night, Joe Biden appeared at a “Town Hall” meeting in Cincinnati, OH.  The event appears to have been sponsored by CNN, as one of its luminaries (Don Lemming) was the host. What?  That’s not his name?  Oh, well, silly me.  (If the shoe fits, etc.)

The quote above, which reads like a parody of something a person suffering from verbal incontinence might say, can be verified here.

Some highlights from the event:

Don Lemon starts by asserting that everyone is “live” in Cincinnati, OH, on the campus of Mt. Saint Joseph University.  Pretty sure Lemon, at least, has a working central nervous system.  Not sure about the star of the show.  The opening schmoozefest went as follows:

LEMON: So without further ado, everyone, let’s welcome the 46th president of the United States, Joe Biden.

(APPLAUSE)

JOE BIDEN, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: How you doing, pal?

LEMON: Good to see you.

BIDEN: Good to see you.

LEMON: How have you been?

BIDEN: Well.

LEMON: You’re good.

BIDEN: Well. Thank you.

(APPLAUSE)

LEMON: It’s good to see you.

BIDEN: It’s good to be back here.

I’ll spare you the rest of the banter between the two of them which continues, for the duration of the meeting, in much the same banal and treacly vein.

Lemon states that almost all the recent US hospitalizations and deaths from Covid are among the unvaccinated.  (That may be true, but flies in the face of what other countries are saying.)  Uncle Joe states, unambiguously it appears, that “If you’re vaccinated…you are not going to die.”

What?  Never?  (Well, hardly ever.) Party on!

Joe then says it’s “gigantically important” (sounds like sizeism to me) that we “act like Americans” and get vaccinated.  Just like 85% of Americans over 50 have already done.  “This is not a pandemic,” he unequivocally states.

Good to know, although he stated, a minute or two before that “this is a pandemic for those who haven’t gotten a vaccination.” Now I’m confused.

There follows much discussion about the process by which the vaccine drugs were approved.  Joe is adamant that they were not “approved too quickly,” but have, in fact, been in the works for decades.  Two decades.  Again, good to know, even it it’s a fact (or a bit of historical revisionism) that both Joe and Kamala must have been ignorant of prior to the 2020 election when they were both insisting that they wouldn’t be caught dead (to coin a phrase) submitting to a rushed-to-market and untested Trump vaccine.

Joe once again assures us that, if we’re vaccinated, “you’re not going to get COVID,”  even the Delta variation.

And again, that’s good to know.  I wonder if his assurance is legally binding, though. Hmmm.

Joe then states that there are “12 individuals” on Facebook who are spreading almost half of all the “misinformation,” and repeats his “they’re killing people”  accusation, saying that that wasn’t a joke. So I guess he meant it.

(Apparently, this claim comes from a report by a UK-based outfit called the Center for Countering Digital Hate.)

This is followed by still more schmoozing on the question of why certain demographics (African American, primarily, and one in which, although Trump made electoral strides there is, let’s face it, not majority Trump-friendly) are still inimical to the vaccine.

No worries; Joe to the rescue!

BIDEN: One of the things though we’re doing is — what I’ve done — we’ve done, excuse me — my team has done is we provided the ability to put in African-American communities the vaccine and those who are, in fact, able to administer the vaccine and people who are respected in the community in the — in those areas, particularly in areas where you have public health centers, where you, in fact, have people who are the folks who are really at the low end of the economic scale, don’t have much access to anything.

And a little further on:

BIDEN: And people are unfortunately — some more slowly than others — now, by the way, remember when I first got elected, the issue was, when I said I was going to do a million shots a week, and people said, “Biden can’t do that,” or, “The Biden team can’t do that,”

Umm, I think when you got elected, Bud, the previous (Trump!) administration was already just about doing that….

I think that’s enough.  You can read a transcript of the entire thing, here.  I suggest some sort of alcoholic fortification before you start.

It’s truly incredible.  And it is sad (and infuriating) to see Don Lemon, and the other participants in this farcical show, pretending not to notice the struggles of Joe Biden, never an inspiring speaker at the best of times, as he wanders off course and flounders into incoherence on any question which requires more than the words “and” and “the” in response.

What a disgraceful exhibition.

    Thanks for clarifying everything, @she. Can’t wait for the wise words of our 46th Pres to be chiseled into stone somewhere on the National Mall. Or maybe better sunk at the bottom of the Potomac.

    I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if they were drugging him to make him even worse. I don’t think the Dems ever intended for one minute for him to be president for any length of time. They’ve known he was an embarrassing idiot even when he was young. Old age has only given it a new dimension.  They’d never even have allowed him to make it through the primaries if they hadn’t had a plan. They’re paving the way for their choice, Harris, who they foisted on their own voters even though it was plain they’d never have chosen her themselves. She didn’t even make it through the primaries. But the Democrats do not like the voters interfering in an election.

    Missed you too! And no, she’s no better. That’s why their own voters didn’t choose her. They don’t care if she’s better. She’s going to be Obama’s third term. They found out with Obama that people will be afraid to oppose what she says for fear of being called a racist. And with her, they also get to call you a misogynist. Perfect. A twofer.

    Yeah, I think this is the fundamental dichotomy observed by anyone with a modicum of intelligence.  Whereas Biden, in all his incoherence, often makes Trump’s (regularly diffuse and unfathomable) declamations on the same issues sound like emanations from Churchill, no-one on the Left will point out Biden’s shortcomings, for fear of  losing the moral high ground to Orange Man Bad.

    And no, [Kamala is] no better. That’s why their own voters didn’t choose her. They don’t care if she’s better. She’s going to be Obama’s third term.

    A woman who dropped out of the primaries before a single vote was cast.  And actually, she’s a threefer.  Arguing with her, or opposing anything she says not only makes you a misogynist and a racist, but also a purveyor of Asian hate.  (Because, apparently, racism is multi-faceted, and it’s not enough to simply issue a blanket condemnation, because every ethnicity and race wants its special and unique piece of the pie.  And (so they tell me) Asian hate is different from regular racism.)

    The ignorant need not be foolish, but such is the state of our society that common sense has been so badly damaged, people actually go out and vote for guys like Joe Biden. Unfortunately, we’re getting what they deserve.
