I Thought That Was Funny. I Was Mistaken.
I felt bad writing a snippy post ridiculing my British friends for elevating such an absurd figure to a position of power. But it’s so easy – I just can’t help myself. He was placed in that office by powers beyond the control of the citizens, and there’s nothing they can do about it. His stupidity is matched only by his arrogance, but the press continually covers for all the ridiculous things he says. He seems lost, wandering about looking for a camera to smile at. And rather than standing and waving like he’s supposed to, he’s decided that the world needs saving, and he is just the man to do it. How did such an dangerous fool end up leading a great country like Britain? What a joke. They should be embarrassed.
But then, I saw a clip of President Biden on TV this morning. And I decided to keep my snippy post to myself. The absurd spectacle in Britain suddenly felt hauntingly familiar. It was still ridiculous. But it was no longer funny.

Thanks, President Biden. You ruined what was going to be a really funny post. The jokes write themselves. But it’s only funny if it’s somebody else’s problem.
This is not funny. So never mind.
Hmph. Just forget I said anything…Published in General
Well, in King Charles III’s favor, he didn’t require 20,000 national guardsmen to
ensure his coronationinstall his regime.
On a positive note , he won’t be the first King of England who was ridiculous.
But Biden may well be our very worst president.
I think he’s certainly been our most effective President. He’s gotten more done for his party than any President in history.
Since he’s a Democrat, that means he’s also the most destructive President in history.
Barack Obama was known to quip … “never underestimate Joe Biden’s ability to f*%& things up.”
A quick comment in self defense:
I thought it would be funny to compare Prince Charles to Joe Biden. Anyone who is compared to Joe Biden is certain to take offense, as would his supporters. Understandable.
I do think that Charles is not too bright, and that he’s arrogant. I’m not suggesting that he can compete with Biden in either category, and I apologize if my simplistic joke made it sound that way.
And yes, I know, it’s a little different to have a dangerous fool waving at crowds from balconies, vs having a dangerous fool in charge of the most powerful military in the history of the world.
And yes, I know, there are many other places that this analogy falls apart.
It’s just a cheap gag. I apologize to Charles, although this is not the first time he’s been the butt of jokes. Part of the job, I guess. Still, he deserves better.
I just couldn’t help myself.
We are only at the beginning of the third year of Biden and friends. We have effectively two more years to go.
May God please help us.
My name is Jimmah Carter, and I approve of this message.
I think we have a lot more years that that to go.
But I hope you’re right.
Why isn’t Biden sniffing Rosalyn’s hair? And why isn’t Jill kissing Jimmy on the lips?
I heard that Joe was disappointed Amy wasn’t around fo the group hug.
What about a criminal moving into a palace?
Why does he deserve better? What has he done to make his people lives better? Nothing. Less than nothing! He has actively promoted causes that reduce the prosperity of the British people.
Because she’s not a 10 year-old blond girl.
I generally dislike conspiracy theories but I think Biden molested at least two of his kids and is a pedophile. All the evidence that supports this theory is circumstantial but there is alot of it.
I just compared him to Joe Biden.
Surely he deserves better than that.
Well, one difference in Charles’ favor is, while he has spent the last 65 or so years waiting to become king, he was thus not harming his nation much at all.
Whereas Biden has spent those same years grifting for his crime family, influence peddling, and being wrong on every issue he’s addressed.
God Save The King!
If the first Mrs Biden deliberately drove in front of that big truck, that could be why.
I suppose the diary is technically circumstantial.
“Endorse me or the little hobbit lady gets it!”
I’d say it becomes a den of thieves, but how would you tell?
The best kind.
Cheap gags for cheap targets.
Now that Joe has a record to run on, I’m not so sure he can beat Trump. Dems don’t want him to run, but Kamala prevents him from backing out. He’s arrogant enough to think he’s doing a good job. The Dems are in a jam and the only way out is exposing Joe’s criminality.
Charles can express complete thoughts in a way Joe never could. But Chuck could only dream of the authority Joe has to impair our freedom and degrade our lifestyles in the name of climate change.
Just hilarious that two of the greatest nations on earth are symbolized by such epic mediocrities.
It might not be so bad if Joe was ONLY mediocre.
The only way that Biden could possibly lose to Trump would be in an election.
Which seems exceedingly unlikely at this point.
Democrats are going to do 2020 again, except better. Why would they not?
Both Biden and King Charles desire their nations become californicated. (The sooner, the better.)
15 minute cities, plus fuels produced off Scotland’s shores or in America’s natural gas sites sent off to the people of The Ukraine. While people at home have to cut back on grocery shopping to pay off utilities.
At least in England, there is no rosy assertion that come the next election, they can vote their way out of having Charles around.
Long live The King!
It landed. No need to apologize to Himself or anyone else.
