Joe Biden was in South Korea over the weekend, and as RedState reported, things quickly went off the rails.
The president’s mental decline was on full display, with him mispronouncing the South Korean President’s name. He also spat in the face of his fellow Americans, once again telling people to buy expensive, unavailable electric cars if they are worried about high gas prices. Need a truck? Just buy an $80,000 Ford Lightning that you won’t get until 2024. Brilliant plan, right?
But another comment at the end of his speech left onlookers perplexed. When asked what his message to North Korea’s Kim Jung Un is, Biden responded with this mind-boggling retort.
"Do you have a message for Kim Jong-un while you're here?"

For context, North Korea recently released a promotional video for a new ballistic missile system. The isolated, communist nation has also started live-fire testing again. Obviously, that’s a serious issue for South Korea, and you would expect the President of the United States to be ready to address the subject while in the Asian nation. After all, that’s what presidents do, right?
Instead, he responds with “Hello…(awkward pause)…Period,” walking off the stage afterward. And because it’s the weekend, here are some helpful visual aids.
Biden has presumably been preparing for this trip for weeks. He’s asked about the most serious issue that plagues South Korea, and he either wasn’t ready for it or his mind is so completely gone that the best he could come up with on the spot was “hello” before oddly proclaiming “period,” as if he had just made an incredibly profound point. Did his brain just shut down and reboot? One is left to wonder whether he’s even aware North Korea is a place.
What we really need is for someone to edit Lionel Ritchie’s “Hello” in the background of the clip. Then it might make just a little more sense.
Regardless, it remains disturbing that in the midst of so much turmoil and suffering, the United States is led by a man so supremely incompetent and incoherent. Does anyone think Kim Jung Un is scared of Joe Biden? Or that any tyrannical figure is, for that matter? Having a dementia-ridden president has consequences, and we are seeing them play out in real-time, from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to China’s continued encroachment.
