If there is one standard operating tactic that President Biden seems to turn to again and again, it’s major league denial.
During an appearance at an Maine-based manufacturing facility in July, Biden predictably bragged about the direction the economy was going.
At that point, Biden claimed that inflation was coming down, joking that he would probably be impeached over good economic performance.
“Maybe they’ll decide to impeach me because [inflation is] coming down … I don’t know. I’d love that one,” Biden chortled.
Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House Press Propagandist, was sure to chime in with her standard gaslighting, namely by dismissing the “hypothetical” scenario of a Biden impeachment.
“We’re not going to get into what House Republicans want to do, may not do, hypotheticals, that’s on them … What I can speak to is exactly what we’re doing today, right? We’re going to Maine. We’re going to be able to talk about an issue that matters to Americans: investing in America, manufacturing, bringing good union-paying jobs back to America,” Jean-Pierre asserted, which was reinforced by Biden’s standard political insincerity.
“We have a plan for turning things around. ‘Bidenomics’ is just another way of saying restoring the American dream,” Biden boomed.
Things were “restored” later, that’s for sure, though not in the way Biden meant.
Amusingly, inflation increased once again in August, right after Biden’s remarks, though he predictably didn’t acknowledge that one.
And, also amusingly, the impeachment is no longer a “hypothetical” scenario, given that a formal inquiry has begun.
Biden initially ignored the inquiry, until enough media pressure apparently compelled him to offer a rather uninspiring response.
“I’m focused on the things the American people want me focused on,” Biden declared, his first post-impeachment remarks.
Funny, Mr. President. As most people are rather “focused on” shady foreign dealings that have made you, and your son, very, very rich.
Conspicuous riches, relative to how little actual talent is brought to the table.
“The best I can tell is they want to impeach me because they want to shut down the government,” he added unhelpfully.
Or because “they” would rather not have a Manchurian candidate in power on the cusp of a potential world war, Mr. Presidnent.
On her pro-propagandist part, Jean-Pierre has argued that the impeachment inquiry constitutes little more than a “political stunt,” while the White House claims it is based upon “unprecedented, unfounded claims.”
Just “unfounded” suspicious activity reports (SARs) from JP Morgan and multiple other institutions.
Not to mention multiple whistleblowers from Biden’s business organizations and federal agencies regarding the utter illegality of the family’s foreign partnerships.
What’s “unprecedented” is that a family with this foreign track record is occupying the White House in the first place.
