Joe Biden lashes out as ‘catastrophe for US’ after weeks of blunders- ‘President in name only’ | World | News

The 46th US president has often found himself in the embarrassing position of over the past few years for making statements that are awkward and often make the White House senseless. During his recent visit to Poland, Biden appeared to insinuate that the Russian leader would be ousted from the Kremlin.

Speaking of Vladimir Putin in his keynote address, he said: “For God’s sake, this man cannot stay in power.”

The statement caused a dramatic escalation, forcing the White House to intervene and issue justifications for the POTUS statement.

Writing Op-Ed The Telegraph, Allister Heath said: “His humiliatingly demoted role became clear last week when he suddenly deviated from the script during his keynote address in Poland, insinuating Vladimir Putin that ‘for God’s sake, this man can’t stay in power’ .

“It was a dramatic escalation, a clear and simple message that is unlikely to be misinterpreted by any reasonable person, yet the White House did not appear to have even asked him for permission before ‘clarifying’ his statement.

“Biden’s people – who should be working for him, not the other way around – immediately deny that he is calling for regime change.

“They claimed, within seconds of his speech, that the words he spoke didn’t really mean what he clearly meant.”

Mr Heath continued to hit Mr Biden and said: “America desperately needs a determined and visionary leader, but has found itself stuck with an ineffective, erratic and confused puppet.

“Joe Biden is US President in name only, the weakest, least powerful incumbent in over a century.

The vice president received a hypothetical 38 percent of the vote, while Trump got 49 percent, two points more than he got against Biden.

While Biden has ipadnewsed his intention to run for a second term, Trump has repeatedly teased the 2024 bid but has not said for sure whether he will run a third presidential campaign.

Calling his Presidency a ‘catastrophe’, Heath concluded: “The fact that Biden is in office, but not in power, has given his party hardliners the freedom to wreak havoc.

“His presidency turned into a disaster for America, and a disaster for the entire world.
