Joe Biden has gone off script about Ukraine and Russia at least three times over the last week.
Whenever this happens, the White House then has to scramble to ‘clarify’ and explain what Biden really meant.
During a recent appearance on the Jesse Watters show, Rand Paul called this a national security threat.
He is exactly right.
Breitbart News reports:
Rand Paul: We Shouldn’t Have to Treat Biden Like Someone in Cognitive Decline, His ‘Intemperate Speech’ Is a ‘National Security Risk’
Paul said, “Well, you know, a lot of times when you’re around somebody who’s in cognitive decline, you find yourself trying to help them with a sentence, trying to help them complete it, and say, oh no, that’s not what you really mean. Let me help you complete the sentence. But we shouldn’t have to do that for the commander-in-chief.
And it is actually a national security risk. Because he’s sending signals that no one in their right mind would want to send to Russia at this point. We aren’t trying to replace Putin in Russia, we aren’t trying to have regime change, we’re not sending troops into Ukraine, and we’re not going to respond in kind with chemical weapons. So, none of those things are true.”
Paul continued, “But, you know, he lives in an alternate universe where he just says they’re not true and he didn’t say them. So, I guess you’re supposed to look the other way. But even the left-wing media is noticing these gaffes. So, I do think that it is a real problem. And there’s a humorous angle to this, but it’s really not funny.
I mean, because we’re worried about what he’s saying precipitating or escalating the conflict in Ukraine into a world war. That’s very serious.”

The White House should limit Biden’s appearances.
