Joe Biden gave some remarks on Tuesday at Lockheed Martin in Alabama about his desire to send more aid to Ukraine.
Biden has asked Congress for $33 billion additional in aid. This was after already getting $13.6 billion last month. Biden claimed that they already had spent that money. Not only that, but he wants to make it a continual thing — to preserve “democracy.” No end in sight as to how much money that might involve. Great concern for Ukraine’s borders, but very little for our own.
But in the process of giving mostly his standard memorized shtick, Biden managed to fumble the delivery in a couple of significant ways.
At one point, Biden claimed that he was arming the Russians before Russia attacked. Yes, he said that.

“Before Russia attacked, we made sure Russia had Javelins and other weapons to strengthen their defenses, so Ukraine was ready for whatever happened,” Biden exclaimed.
Imagine Ukraine and Russia hearing this. They must think Biden is out of his mind at this point. But sure, Democrats, tell us this is just a “stutter” — as he keeps gaffing, over and over and over again. Of course, Joe was secretly using the name of a Soviet spy in the Tom Clancy novels in communication with his son Hunter. So, maybe he does think he’s arming Russia.
But, that wasn’t the only glaring mistake Biden made when talking about Ukraine. He also confused Ukrainians with Hungarians. During his State of the Union address, Biden confused Ukrainians with Iranians. No, Joe, they’re not the same.

“Just a few days ago, the Wall Street Journal quoted a young Hungarian fighter saying, ‘Without the Javelins, it would have been very hard to stop the enemy pushing ahead,’” Biden said. Is he going to send that aid to Hungary or Ukraine? Does he even know?
I’d also like to point out another interesting confusion he seemed to have in his remarks made on Tuesday.
In his official written statement, Biden said that the draft opinion meant they needed to get out and vote for pro-choice (Democrats).
Third, if the Court does overturn Roe, it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose. And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November. At the federal level, we will need more pro-choice Senators and a pro-choice majority in the House to adopt legislation that codifies Roe, which I will work to pass and sign into law.
But then, in his off-the-cuff remarks that he made hours after that statement, he was asked, “What does this mean for the midterms? What does this mean for the Democrats’ argument in the midterms?” His reply? “I haven’t thought that through yet.” So he had some thoughts about it earlier in his official statement but hadn’t thought it through when he was asked about it later. In other words, they’re issuing statements about what “he thinks,” when he can’t even say what he thinks later in person.
It was bad enough when he said that there hadn’t been any senators from Delaware on Monday. That prompted more 25th Amendment talk. But it’s continuing to get worse.
