At this point, it’s almost old hat. We should simply be expecting that our President is going to say something ridiculous every time his staff is brave enough to put him behind a lectern, or let him loose among crowds.
Heck, things have gotten so absurd that they’re even putting staffers in Easter Bunny costumes in order to stealthily wrangle our geezerly Commander in Chief around.
Even in his most solemn moments he can’t seem to get it right.
President Joe Biden, visiting Israel on Wednesday, added yet another entry to his long list of gaffes, mistakenly saying we must keep alive the “honor of the Holocaust.”
The president made the flub shortly after touching down in Israel, kicking off a two-day visit with the Middle Eastern country’s leaders.
What exactly was the context?
“Later today, I will once more return to the hallowed ground of … Yad Vashem to honor the 6 million Jewish lives that were stolen in a genocide and continue — which we must do every, every day — continue to bear witness, to keep alive the truth and honor of the Holocaust — horror of the Holocaust — honor those we lost, so that we never, ever forget that lesson, you know, and to continue our shared, unending work to fight the poison of anti-Semitism wherever it raises its ugly head,” Biden said.
Biden’s nonstop string of gaffes and flubs have fueled a great deal of speculation about the President’s cognitive abilities, especially as he continues to insist that he’ll be running for the White House again in 2024.
