Biden Admits That When He Hears the Word 'President,' He Looks Around Wondering 'Where the Hell Is He?'

President Joe Biden hosted the National Governors Association Winter Meeting in the East Room of the White House Friday, and he couldn’t resist the temptation to toss out one of his trademark not-off-the-cuff quips.


“Every time I hear ‘the President of the United States,’ I look around and say, ‘Where the hell is he?’” Biden said. The line apparently failed, as very few in the room laughed and some looked confused or concerned.


Very funny, Joe. Actually, it’s not that funny, and although he’s made similar jests in the past, it points to a larger problem: many don’t believe the President is really in charge—including seemingly himself. This is due to his frequent mangling of the English language, jokes like these which imply he doesn’t even really feel like he’s the Commander in Chief, and the widespread belief that his handlers and his wife Jill are actually running the country.

That conclusion is only strengthened when Biden admits he wanted to shoot down the Chinese spy balloon on a Wednesday but was told to wait by the Pentagon, who finally blasted it out of the sky a few days later. Similarly, he’s frequently talked about not being “allowed” to do something, and his advisors won’t “let him” answer any more reporters’ questions:


Also, note that Biden implies that the president is sure to be a male. “Where is he?” he asks. If it’s not Biden himself, then it could be anyone—including a woman. You can bet the outcry will be negligible, but just think if Trump had said that when president; there would have been demonstrations outside the White House within minutes. Misogynist!

Deservingly, Biden took a pounding on Twitter, with a Washington Examiner columnist replying, “Me too, Joe.”  Another tweeter posted, “Biden’s most frequently asked question is ‘where the hell am I’.” And the answer is:

Some of this might seem petty—I don’t actually think Joe’s a misogynist for suggesting that a hypothetical president would be male by default. However, this repeated pattern of implying or outright saying that he’s not fully in command sends the wrong signal to our rivals, most importantly Russia and China. The joke of not being used to being the president may have been slightly humorous when Biden first took office–but it’s been two years since his inauguration.


It leads us all to wonder, where is the real person making the decisions?
