Oh no, Joe, please don’t go on Kimmel
The news that President Biden is going to go in the late night comedy show is a pretty good indication of how totally out of touch with reality the Biden White House is.
Now my wife Calista just filled up her car. For $104.50. She was in a state of shock. Now, when people are paying that kind of money at the gas station, or the woman in Washington, Pennsylvania, who said, she had to go to five different stores to buy instant formula, and she couldn’t afford the gasoline to go to five different stores. Or you look at what’s happening with the price of food, or you look at the skyrocketing crime rates around the country.
But I think the Biden team doesn’t understand their problems, not language, it’s not communication. It’s not humor. Their problem is things aren’t working. Americans know they’re not working, and Americans are in pain.
And so, frankly, somebody pointed out to me, it’s not necessarily clever, to go on a comedy show and be funny, at a time when people all around you are in pain, but they’d like you to do is actually stay in the White House. He is, after all, the president with the largest number of days of vacation of any modern president. They’d like you to him to stay in the White House and fix the problems. But I think since they can’t fix the problems, because in fact, they are the problem. The best they can do is play with words, and try to find a new way to approach things.
This, I think is going to spiral downward this summer. I have a hunch, you’re going to see electricity, brownouts, you’re going to see a whole range of continuing problems. In terms of crime, you’re going to see continued massive illegal immigration. And the world is going to become steadily more dangerous, because pieces are falling apart. sanctions on Russia aren’t working. And there’s no evidence that the Chinese are particularly afraid of us, which puts a real threat about Taiwan and the North Koreans are behaving in their usual unpredictable way. And the Iranians are steadily moving to increase their grip on the Middle East.
So whether it’s overseas or at home, whether it’s the economy or physical safety in big cities, the Biden administration doesn’t seem to have a grip on the real world. And that should worry all of us.
