WH Can't Explain Biden's Empty Schedule as He Shows What His True Priority Is

We’re facing crushing inflation, the worst in forty years. People post about the bare shelves they see in grocery stores as though we were the Soviet Union. Russia and Ukraine may be on the brink of war. Our border is being slammed without end with illegal aliens entering with the worst numbers for December in history.

So what is Joe Biden doing amid all these crises? Surely he’s working every hour on these concerns to try to alleviate the problems, right? Well, not exactly. It’s Joe Biden, remember. The man who helped us to understand what the term “calling a lid” meant because he’s so often packing it in early. Not to mention spending his weekends on vacation in Delaware.

One of the reporters asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki why Biden had nothing on his schedule apart from the “PDB” — the Presidential Daily Briefing. That was a question that Psaki didn’t anticipate. Check how she attempts to justify what he’s doing and count the “ums” and “uhs” as she tries to think of things to say.

“Can you shed any light on how he’s spending his day?” the reporter asked.

“Well, let’s see, um, this morning I think he had some policy meetings, uh, also a PDB meeting,” Psaki responded. “Uh, he, um, later this afternoon, uh, I think is doing some remarks review. There’s some days that we spend some time doing internal meetings and discussions, uh, with policy experts, with policy leaders, um, and that’s that’s what’s happening today. He would say he doesn’t have nearly enough time on his schedule because it is packed whether people see him or not.”

I’m kind of curious as to what the “remarks review” is she talks about. Is that when they review with Biden how he messed up the day before? I’ve never heard of a “remarks review” before.

But he did attend to some important things yesterday. He went shopping where he bought a Kamala mug at Honey Made, a boutique store, and he got ice cream.

This is what the pool was reduced to reporting on, according to the Washingtonian.

“Early pool reports are vague, however, on what Biden ordered at Jeni’s other than it was a cone with two scoops—’light colored flavor on bottom, darker ice cream on top.’ POTUS waved the cone at pool reporters before heading off in his motorcade.”

Biden also called an early lid after the shopping at 3:06 p.m.

Bottom line? They don’t know what to do with him anymore. They say they want to have him out more to interact with people. But if they do things like the press conference, he crashes and burns. Anywhere he may have to talk puts him at risk of another mistake. But what is he doing about any of these issues? Nothing at the border, he’s waiting for Putin to move on Ukraine, and he has no idea how to deal with the economy or inflation.
