Biden Suddenly Extends His Vacation, Leaving the WNBA Champs Hanging and Questions Abounding

If members of the WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces were excited to meet Joe Biden and the First Lady on Friday, they were left disappointed. According to Peter Doocy, the president suddenly extended his vacation in Lake Tahoe, choosing to instead send in the B-team of Kamala Harris and her husband to facilitate the White House event.

Far be it from me to defend the terrible sports product that is the WNBA, but it seems pretty disrespectful for the Bidens to decide at the last minute that they had better things to do than to show up for an event that was planned months ago. It's also ironic given the president's constant talk of gender equality. I guess the women's sports teams aren't important enough to matter.

What's more interesting, though, is the speculation about why Biden extended his vacation. I mean, it's not like he's had a shortage of downtime lately, with him being away from the White House almost the entire month of August. First, he went to Rehoboth Beach, then he went to Camp David, and as of this writing, he's in Lake Tahoe at a billionaire Tom Steyer's house. So what gives? I've got a few ideas.

Remember how terrible Biden looked when he put his latest vacation on hold to visit Maui for a few hours after it had been devastated by fire? He was zoning out on camera and even appearing to fall asleep at times, and that's when he wasn't making insanely unempathetic jokes in front of people who had just lost everything.

Did Biden decide to stay in Lake Tahoe because he's having one of his many "bad days," in which he can't function enough to be in public? That's certainly where my money would be if I had to bet on the matter. It's just not normal for a president to cancel an appearance at a pre-planned event at the White House unless there's some extenuating circumstance behind the scenes. 

Of course, there's another possible explanation, albeit one that makes Biden look even worse. That would be the idea that he simply didn't care enough to show up. We are talking about perhaps the biggest do-nothing president in history who couldn't feign care about anyone but himself and his family if he tried. 

This is a guy who had to be shamed into visiting Lahaina, HI, where hundreds of people are dead and hundreds are still missing (including a lot of children). He only made the trek 13 days after the area was secured, and he had to interrupt his vacation to do so. I wouldn't put it past Biden to be lazy and self-centered enough to extend his current stay in Lake Tahoe just because he felt like it. The guy is living the dream on the dime of taxpayers. Nothing else and no one else matters.

But hey, I'm sure he'll arrive back to the White House well-rested and ready to tackle the problems that face the country. Oh, who am I kidding, he'll probably just head out on another vacation.
