After being in Delaware for the weekend, Joe Biden is on vacation once again. The fact that the country is at its highest inflation yet under his leadership and that things are generally not good both nationally and internationally does not register with him. The old guy is having a wonderful time thanks to your money, and he isn’t concerned about how it affects you.
Despite his reputation for being a hard person to work with, every now and then a reporter will get too close to Biden. On Monday, one such journalist made the error of asking Biden about the fact that many economists anticipate a recession ahead of time. Instead of responding to the question, Joe Biden snapped — something he has been known to do in recent years.

To begin, Biden is either intentionally deceptive (very likely) or simply extremely ignorant. It’s true that a recession is on the way, according to a majority of recently polled economists, and who would argue with such dismal economic news that has been released since the beginning of June? Inflation has now reached an all-time record of 8.6 percent. Interest rates are also increasing rapidly, which will prevent investors from participating. Biden has put us in a bind, and the only way out of this is a recession. Former economic advisor to Obama, Larry Summers said on Sunday that, if inflation is to be controlled, there is no historical precedent for not going into recession at this stage.
The president, though, is an enraged old man, and nothing irritates him more than when reporters dare to ask him hard questions about his record. Joe Biden continues to bury his head in the sand, lashing out at the truth that he created by making some terrible decisions. It’s enough that he is on vacation once again; but for him to lash out at a reporter for asking questions about the economy is just bad form.
Biden’s daughter and granddaughter apparently realized that they had to come to the rescue of the terror-stricken president when they saw the reporters imploringly asking more questions.

It’s incredible to see his daughter step up behind him, shouting “No more,” and waving her hands, while the president is still speaking. They appear to think he’s out of it and oblivious to his surroundings, since he is truly out of it and oblivious to his circumstances. Could you imagine if Ivanka Trump did that to Donald Trump? Or even Barack Obama’s daughters having to tell him when he can talk as he answers reporters? It’s strange and not usual. Presidents who retain their mental faculties are not treated in this manner.
I’m wondering how long this can go on, with Biden being hustled away by handlers. Is it possible that he will continue to do so until 2024? I really have my doubts, and the concept that he’ll seek a second term is ridiculous.
