Biden Snaps, Gives Bizarre Answer to Reporter's Question: 'Give Me a Break,' 'Need Time'

Western Journal

President Joe Biden continues to act weirdly in front of reporters.

While speaking at a news conference on Sunday during the G-7 summit in Cornwall, England, Biden was asked by a journalist how he plans to negotiate with European allies when it comes to sanctions in light of their reported skepticism.

Biden didn’t respond particularly well.

Before leaving the podium, Biden cut the questioner off mid-sentence and effectively begged off the inquiry by citing his relative inexperience as president thus far, notably getting the number of days he’s been in office wrong.

“A hundred and twenty days. Give me a break. Need time,” Biden said.

Watch below:

This sort of bizarre behavior continues to be a feature of the Biden presidency.

As Sky News reported this week, “Questions have been raised about Joe Biden’s ‘mental acuity’ after a series of embarrassing gaffes, and the president’s ‘bizarre response’ to a reporter at a recent press conference.”

At this point, noting doubts about Biden’s mental acuity is akin to underscoring the fact that former President Donald Trump was unpopular with the establishment media.

The difference, however, is that establishment journalists skewered Trump. But they travel to extraordinary lengths not only to ignore Biden’s inability to answer basic questions but to actually sell the public an ideal.

The media is fully in the tank for the Biden administration.

Its members do not view themselves as impartial arbiters of the truth with a constitutionally protected responsibility to hold political leaders accountable.

Instead, they have mistaken their opinions for fact and fancy themselves a special breed of activist, more intelligent than the average American and more influential than the politicians, so long as the public trusts them.

Imagine if this had been Trump sharply refusing to answer questions about his dealings with American allies and then snapping at reporters and ending news conferences.

Would we not hear that democracy itself had been stamped upon?

The truth is that Biden doesn’t have to clue the media in on the particulars of his negotiations with allies. But he could maintain his composure on camera and beg off with a degree of class — so it doesn’t appear to the world, our enemies included, that he’s completely out of his league.

And, for what it’s worth, at exactly how many days in office can we expect Biden to know how long he’s actually been president? (As of Sunday, it was 145 days, not 120 days.)

This is utter foolishness.

If this were a Republican, the media would not allow it to go un-scrutinized.

We know this because we just had a Republican president.

This meant being force-fed four years of commentary about Trump walking too slowly down ramps or supposedly lying about his height to veil clinical obesity or pretending to sip a glass of wine instead of drinking it or consuming too much Coca-Cola or, according to choice experts, suffering some mental pathology because he puts his surname on buildings.

It was an exercise in treating the important as mundane and the inconsequential as republic-shattering.

If Trump had mistaken his number of days in office as Biden just did, we would have heard that he was deliberately spreading misinformation about his presidential experience to manipulate the public.

Americans need to stop trusting the establishment media.

They need to realize that the media is not interested in holding politicians accountable, but rather forwarding a political agenda.

Part of that means propping up Joe Biden as both an inspiring, transformational statesman and a sentient human.

He is neither.

The evidence continues to mount before our eyes, as does the proof that our media is a farce.

Texas House Speaker Issues Arrest Warrant for Dem Rep as He Flees to DC for Second Time

Republican Texas House Speaker Dade Phelan is seeking serious consequences for his Democratic colleagues who left the state to avoid key legislative work. Phelan has initiated a civil arrest warrant for Rep. Philip Cortez after Cortez flew back to Washington after briefly returning to Texas for talks regarding a Republican-supported election bill, according to The Washington Post. Speaker Dade Phelan signs civil arrest warrant for Texas House Democrat who returned to Washingtonhttps://t.co/waprrFq6tN — Midland Reporter-Telegram (@mwtnews) July 26, 2021 New: Here’s a copy of the civil arrest warrant for @CortezPhilip signed by @DadePhelan yesterday after he returned to DC. #txlege pic.twitter.com/oqbQtQ86vN — Brad Johnson (@bradj_TX) July 26, 2021 Two weeks ago, Texas House Democrats flew to D.C. in order to prevent a quorum necessary for the lawmaking body to debate and vote. The Democrats flew on a private charter jet maskless, and six of them later tested positive for coronavirus. Phelan said in a statement that Cortez “has irrevocably broken my trust and the trust of this chamber” and “represented to me and his fellow members that he wanted to work on policy and find solutions to bring his colleagues back to Texas,” according to The Texas Tribune, an online news outlet. But Cortez, whose district office is in San Antonio, insists that he flew back to Washington because the Republicans in Austin were being stubborn on the legislation — as if they were being the non-cooperative ones. “Last week I went back to Texas with a goal of improving the restrictive elections bill. After discussions with Republican leadership didn’t yield any substantive results, I have rejoined my Democratic colleagues in Washington D.C. to continue this fight on this front,” he wrote in a Twitter post published Sunday. Last week I went back to Texas with a goal of improving…

Restaurant Tapes Sign to Front Door: Proof of Being Unvaccinated Required for Entry

Western Journal

A restaurant in Huntington Beach, California, is trolling the fascists so hard, leftist Twitter is about to blow a gasket. As California businesses consider requiring proof of vaccination for entry, one rebellious eatery, Basilico’s Pasta e Vino, recently taped a sign to its door that reads “Proof of being unvaccinated required.” Underneath this warning is an image of a broken syringe and the declaration, “We have zero tolerance for treasonous, anti-American stupidity. Thank you for pondering.” Basilico’s has a history of thumbing its nose at California’s far-reaching coronavirus mandates. Last year, when the state shut down indoor dining, Basilico’s stayed open, the Los Angeles Times reported. Later, when the state issued a mask mandate, Basilico’s declared itself a mask-free zone and required patrons to remove their face coverings. The new sign is just the latest jab at the powers that be, and it is a hilarious one at that. It is clearly a gag, as it is impossible to prove one is not vaccinated, and an employee confirmed to the dismayed Times that the restaurant is not, in fact, checking anyone’s vaccination status. Of course, it was all too much for Twitter leftists, many of whom seem to be under the impression that the unvaccinated are keeling over and dying in the streets and that this novel inoculation is the only thing keeping the more enlightened Americans from doing so themselves. This restaurant down the street from me in Huntington Beach is asking that diners show proof they have **not** been vaccinated. Partisan politics has broken so many brains. Get me off this ride. pic.twitter.com/GSFVqNMiEX — Billy Binion (@billybinion) July 27, 2021 Good morning. Happy Tuesday. ICYMI “proof of being UNvaccinated” is actually a death certificate. And dead people don’t eat at Basilico’s Huntington Beach or any restaurants. Anti-American stupidity…
