During a recent event at the University of Hartford, Joe Biden concluded his remarks with the phrase, “God save the queen, man,” leaving many people puzzled. This is just another example in a long list of bizarre and incomprehensible statements from the supposed leader of the free world, ranging from Corn Pop and Lying to Dog-Faced Pony Soldier. Even Biden’s own exhausted aides are now giving up on trying to make sense of his ramblings, admitting that they, like the rest of us, have no idea what he’s talking about.
In an attempt to defend Biden’s incoherent statements, Axios characterized them as “old-timey expressions,” “quirky aphorisms,” and “off-beat proverbs.” They portray him as a lovable, eccentric figure who always has a twinkle in his eye while saying crazy things. But this narrative is nothing more than an attempt to downplay the legitimate concerns about Biden’s age and stamina as he potentially runs for a second term.
Letting “Joe be Joe” should not be an excuse to ignore the cognitive abilities of the person occupying the highest office in the land. Biden has a history of lying about various aspects of his life, including his academic performance, his family tragedies, and his personal achievements. It is becoming increasingly difficult to dismiss his incoherence when even White House staffers struggle to make him sound coherent or truthful. The recent incident of saying “God save the queen” without any context or explanation raises legitimate questions about his mental state.
When questioned about the meaning behind the phrase, Biden’s deputy press secretary and other aides gave conflicting answers, showing that they were simply making up explanations on the spot. The lack of clarity and consistency from the White House only adds to the perception that there is something amiss. Rather than blaming Republicans for insinuating mental decline, it is essential to address these concerns openly and honestly.
In an age where truth and common sense are often undermined, Biden’s nonsensical statements and frequent lies do not make him a poetic genius or a voice of a new era. They highlight the need for transparency, accountability, and a leader who can communicate effectively. Mounting evidence suggests that Biden’s mental acuity is questionable, and it is irresponsible to dismiss these concerns simply because they may be exploited for political gain. The American people deserve clarity and confidence in their leaders, not a participation trophy for incoherence and inconsistency.
