Staff Announcement About Biden Calling an Early 'Lid' Shows He's Getting Worse

Joe Biden was in Ireland last week for four days on what was essentially a family vacation with his son Hunter and his sister Valerie Biden Owens. We ended up paying for him to look into his genealogical background and embarrass us before the world with his problematic comments.


Biden couldn’t even answer a simple question from a child without help from Hunter. Then, even after it was explained, he went on to tell the audience of children a story about working with the late Sen. Jesse Helms (R-NC) that couldn’t possibly have been true given the time frame. He got confused as to where his office was and had a huge security breach while he was in Northern Ireland. He even managed to insult our British allies. And those were just a few of the crazy things that he said over the four days.

But then when he got back from that vacation on Saturday, Biden flew back to his beach house in Delaware for the weekend for still more leisure time. I guess the Irish trip was so strenuous that he needed yet another getaway. When he said he was going to Delaware, he managed to insult his Interior Secretary with a weird comment about her not being from “anywhere.”

So on Monday, you would think he would be well-rested and ready to get to work, right? Wrong.

On Monday morning, his staff called an early lid at 9 a.m. — meaning, “don’t expect anything from him for the rest of the day.” He was worn out already, that early on Monday? That’s who we have in the office now, someone who spends 40 percent of his time on vacation and who can’t even get up for work anymore. It must be tough recovering from vacations and hanging out at the beach. As one Twitter user noted, perhaps all that “licking the world” that he talked about while in Ireland is a pretty tiring exercise.


We talk about the 3 a.m. call and whether someone would be up for that. Biden isn’t even “up” in the middle of the day or on the weekend, because he’s always on break. Sen. Ted Cruz’s special communications adviser Steve Guest said “Biden has a case of the Mondays.” Republican National Committee (RNC) rapid response director Tommy Pigott quipped, “Nothing like a short work day after a weekend at the beach.” The GOP busted Joe as “Hidin’ Biden.” You can expect to see much more of this, as he shifts toward hiding in the basement if ultimately they decide to try to let him run again.

White House spokesperson Andrew Bates tried to deflect from Biden’s issues by telling Fox News Digital, “Who’s Steve Guest?”

But that didn’t help him or Biden much as Guest responded and just highlighted Biden’s problem all the more.


It’s both funny and frankly sad that they can’t defend what’s going on with Biden anymore. Indeed, I think they don’t even know what to say, which is why they don’t want him to do press conferences anymore. They just can’t explain or justify his issues. Unfortunately, it’s just going to keep getting worse.
