Joe Biden gave his first official press conference on Thursday and it was as painful to watch as many people expected it would be.
Biden had cards to read from and a pre-approved list of reporters to call on, but even that didn’t help.
He also didn’t get any particularly tough questions, to no one’s surprise.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
President Joe Biden struggled through his first official press conference on Thursday, pausing frequently to check his notes on the podium and occasionally losing his train of thought as if distracted by the voices echoing madly in his geriatric brain.
The president appeared somewhat lucid at times but didn’t always communicate in a comprehensible fashion. “This makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle,” Biden said in response to a question about so-called voting rights legislation.
On that topic, Biden cited Republican opposition to Democratic-approved bills as a reason for his willingness to consider eliminating the Senate filibuster to avoid “complete lockdown and chaos” in Congress.
“The best way to get something done if you, if you hold near and dear to you that you, uh, um, like to be able to,” Biden clarified. “Anyway … I, we’re going to get a lot done.”
Watch this supercut of his mumbling responses:
He just said "I don't know." When asked when his border policies take effect so the press can be allowed to enter. My god. https://t.co/YNAWBXgi8P

I’m ready for Kamala to be President. I’m not even kidding. This is embarrassing. And emboldening to our enemies.
