Joe Biden is the gift that keeps on giving to conservative political pundits. I for one cannot remember a more target-rich environment than the current president of the United States. If anything I have to triage Biden news before deciding on which idiotic thing he said or did today that most trips my journalistic trigger.
Put simply, to call Joe Biden the Barnie Fife of U.S. presidents would not be an overstatement. Someone who shares that view is Chinese Communist dictator Xi Jinping and his ruthless comrades in Beijing.
The ChiComs, as the late great Rush Limbaugh referred to China, have again humiliated Biden — and by extension, the United States — this time by using our hapless president’s own words against him after he said there is “no federal solution” to dealing with COVID-19, despite promising on the 2020 campaign trail that he was going to “shut down the virus.”
Not that it’s a tough task, given that Biden only opens his mouth to change feet — or lie some more.
To refresh, during a call with governors earlier this week, Arkansas Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson told Biden during the virtual meeting:
And so one word of concern or encouragement for your team is that as you look towards federal solutions that will help alleviate the challenge, make sure that we do not let federal solutions stand in the way of state solutions. And the production of 500 million rapid tests that will be distributed by the federal government is great. But obviously, that dries up the supply chain for the solutions that we might offer as governor.
Biden’s response was pure Biden; he seemingly and cluelessly did an abrupt 180, which set off alarms throughout the media as only Corn Pop’s pal can do.
Look, there is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level.
Enter, the Chinese propaganda machine to jump all over Biden’s admonition with both Communist feet.
China’s state-run propaganda machine, Global Times, quickly capitalized on Biden’s comment, asking, “Did American politicians’ promises during the US presidential elections mean anything at all?”
“I’m going to shut down the virus, not the country,” US President Joe Biden said ambitiously during his presidential campaign in October 2020. However, judging from Biden’s current attitude toward the COVID-19 fight, similar promises made by US politicians are nothing but hollow slogans used to attack other candidates and collect votes. …
During the 2020 presidential elections, many American people had high expectations of Biden because they were convinced that he could curb the raging epidemic. In fact, this was also one of his key platforms. Unfortunately, since US elections have become displays of bipartisan disputes and empty slogans, it is always the American people who ultimately suffer. […]
If the leader of the only superpower in the world today is unable to formulate a unified policy to deal with the public health crisis, and only brag about goals to win more votes, then the US’ system and leadership are dubious.
Do the ChiComs have this inept guy’s number or what? And that now-silly infamous tweet:
I’m going to shut down the virus, not the country.

Welp, that aged well, don’t you think?
As my colleague Sister Toldjah reported on Wednesday, Biden’s year of “shutting down the virus, not the country” hasn’t gone well at all. From shamelessly casting doubt on “Trump’s vaccine” prior to the election to “magically” touting the vaccine, post-election, to misstep after misstep he has tried his damnedest to impose mask mandates and vaccine mandates on pretty much the whole country, only to be rebuffed by the nation’s governors and federal courts along the way. Biden’s Year of COVID has been an unmitigated disaster — and it continues to worsen by the day.
Incidentally, as we reported, Biden subsequently backtracked on his “no federal solution” declaration.
Why? Because Democrat power is a hard thing to relinquish — even when you’re sucking mud.
