Joe Biden is not in charge. As I’ve asserted before, he is but the titular head of government but he is not making the decisions. Now and then in response he blurts something out in response to a question only later to either have Psaki or Karine Jean-Pierre tell us that Biden didn’t say what he meant and then they tell us what he did mean.
It seems that each day Biden is pumped up with some adrenergic med, programmed what to say, handed some note cards and then pushed out to the stage.
Biden was asked why he was paying illegal aliens a reported $450,000 each for violating US law. He called that report “garbage” and it was “not gonna happen.” There was no parsing of the report, no explanation. Just “not gonna happen.” Here’s how it went down:
“Mr. President, as you’re leaving for your overseas trip, there were reports that were surfacing that your administration is planning to pay illegal immigrants who are separated from their families at the border,” Doocy asked. “Up to $450,000 each, possibly a million dollars per family. Do you think that that might incentivize more people to come over illegally?”
“If you guys keep sending that garbage out? Yeah, but it’s not true,” Biden tersely responded.
“So this is a garbage report?” Doocy asked Biden.
“Yeah, OK,” the President replied. “That’s not going to happen.”
The White House immediately stepped in to “clarify” saying that perhaps Biden wasn’t briefed on the matter.
But White House principal deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre added some major qualifiers to Biden’s statement during a press briefing on Thursday, saying payments could in fact happen, just not in the mid-six-figure amounts originally reported by the Wall Street Journal.
“The president, what he was reacting to was the dollar figure that you mentioned to him yesterday,” Jean-Pierre said. “As press accounts today indicate, the Department of Justice made clear to the plaintiffs that the reported figures are higher than anywhere that a settlement can land.”
But Biden didn’t object to the dollar amount. He didn’t “clarify.” He simply called the report “garbage.” Biden’s handlers then again pumped with adrenergics, fed him his lines, gave him his cards and sent him out to the podium. They probably dosed Biden with some steroids as he got angry and the real Biden- the nasty ass SOB- appeared.
@POTUS SNAPS AT REPORTER: “If, in fact, because of the outrageous behavior of the last administration, you were coming across the border, whether it was legal or illegal, & you lost your child! You lost your child! It’s gone! You deserve some kind of compensation!” pic.twitter.com/LGntjL21R4

“You lost your child! It’s gone!”
It’s gone? Forever! What did they do with those children? Dump them at sea?
“You deserve some kind of compensation!”
This sounds right out of TV commercial for a law firm.
But this time he was “comfortable” with amount paid to illegals for breaking into the country. BTW, in this country when parents are convicted of a crime and they put in jail they too are separated from their kids and there is no compensation.
Biden also has a penchant for ignoring things- like Courts.

He even blew off the Supreme Court

Biden has repeatedly suggested that “I’ll get in trouble” if he kept answering questions or “I’m told not to take questions.”
This is all very weird. Who is programming Joe Biden?
