We are not led by the best in this country. That’s been clear for a while, and Joe Biden is content to keep showing us that over and over. Yet, there comes a point when his weakness becomes dangerous. Yesterday was that point.
Biden appeared in a Zoom call with other international leaders, including Russia’s Vladimir Putin and China’s Xi Jinping. This was a moment to show American power and greatness. Instead, Biden stumbled his way through wearing a mask, the only person on the call to do so.
How hard do you think dictator Xi laughed with his boys when he got off this call. https://t.co/br6n65lePv

There are 17 people on that call. Only Biden chose to wear a mask, while sitting alone on a remote video call, after being vaccinated. Does he not realize how stupid this makes us look? You can imagine how much Putin was laughing inside after staring across at our president making an absolute clown of himself.
This sends so many wrong messages. One, it says to our adversaries that our president is a weak, feeble old man who can’t risk taking off a mask after being vaccinated. Of course, that message is actually true, but maybe don’t broadcast it so blatantly? Further, it’s another strike against the Biden administration when it comes to messaging for vaccine distribution. Why go get the vaccine when you can’t even take your mask off to do a Zoom call? It’s all just so idiotic and nonsensical.
But Biden thinks he’s projecting strength by being an “example” of how to wear a mask, in even the most idiotic of times to do so. In reality, everyone is just making fun of him, including our enemies. Past that, no one is still looking to Biden for motivation to mask up. You either believe in the face diaper at this point, or you believe in objective data that says they don’t work.
Regardless, you can expect China and Russia to keep running over us, whether it’s Ukraine, Taiwan, the Middle East, or the Nordstream pipeline. Biden isn’t even going to put up a fight.
