Biden's Confusion, Delusion Go Into Overdrive in Portland

Joe Biden went to Portland, Oregon on Thursday.

Portland has been one of the cities hardest hit by the radical leftist riots. In 2020, we saw constant attacks for more than 100 days on the Portland federal courthouse. The Democrats’ response? Attack the federal agents trying to defend the building and the area. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi even called them “stormtroopers” and accused them of “kidnapping protesters.”


Portland was one of the places that defunded the police after the radical push. Then violent crimes soared 30 percent in a year and the city council decided to add back some of the millions that had been cut.

Portland is a perfect example of the failure of leftist thought. So perhaps there was no better place for the failure they have at the top — Joe Biden — to visit.

But what was a bit funny about his visit was he arrived at the Portland Air National Guard base and delivered a speech on infrastructure. Then he attended a fundraiser for the DNC a short distance away at the Portland Yacht Club. So he didn’t go to any of the places the Democrats have made worse.

Biden spoke about the bill and claimed that he had physically written the bill, “I wrote the original one with my own paw.”

I’m sure he did — right after he finished driving that 18-wheeler truck across the country. He has a paw? Secretly a furry like Beto O’Rourke?

He also had difficulty remembering the name of Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), calling him “Bum” instead.


He told Blumenauer that he could now call him “Joe Biddin” because of it.

Biden reiterated some of his favorite lies, including how much time he’s spent with Xi Jinping, claiming that he traveled 17,000 miles with him.

First, that’s a lie that even the Washington Post has called him out on, but he just keeps repeating it. But why is he so concentrated on telling us that particular lie? Every time he brings that up, he reminds people of the problematic connections his family has to China. But he keeps doing it and shooting himself in the foot. And “foothills of the Tibet?” It’s not “the Tibet,” does he even know what he’s saying half the time?

But if his geography is a little off, at least he knows how long he’s been in office, right? Well, no, not exactly. Because he’s a little confused about that as well.

It’s been 15 months that we’ve had to put up with this, although it feels like forever because it’s been so bad.

But he capped off the delusion at the fundraiser where he explained that the problem was that Americans just didn’t understand what a great job he and the Democrats have done.


He says he’s worried that things have moved so rapidly and so profoundly that it’s “hard for people” to understand. Unfortunately, the problem for him is that we do understand — very well — what a mess he’s made of everything in just 15 short months.
