Oh look. Another media outlet got caught rewriting their headline in Joe’s favor. Can you guess why?
Let’s see if our readers can spot what happened just from the title change.
Here’s the revised title over at DailyMail (where their headlines are as long as some paragraphs):
‘We both married above our station!’ President cracks the jokes with Boris Johnson as First Lady plays in the surf with British PM’s new bride Carrie and her toddler son Wilfred at G7 summit in UK
And here is the original as it had been saved in the ‘Wayback Machine’ web archive:
Biden backs down: White House rows back claims he rebuked Boris Johnson for ‘inflaming tensions’ in Northern Ireland over EU trade row – after UK conservatives called him ‘senile’ ahead of meeting with PM he branded Trump’s ‘clone’
Let’s see — one of them is awfully friendly talking about how wonderful they both are. The other one underlines open hostility between Biden’s foreign policy and the UK’s current challenges in hammering out trade negotiations for North Ireland.
I guess aggressively negative reporting about the American POTUS is no longer on the menu over there. One wonders what changed?
When Trump was President, and Boris was pushing Brexit, Joe didn’t have much love in his heart for the UK’s current PM, a problem which is only underscored by the word ‘love’ written on the back of the First-Birthing-Person Jill’s jacket.
Right out of the gate, before November’s election was finalized, Biden was poking the UK with a stick. This was in Bloomberg, early last November:
“We can’t allow the Good Friday Agreement that brought peace to Northern Ireland to become a casualty of Brexit,” Biden said at the time on Twitter. “Any trade deal between the U.S. and U.K. must be contingent upon respect for the Agreement and preventing the return of a hard border. Period.”
On Sunday, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab denied the U.K. is on a collision course with the U.S. president-elect over Brexit, saying he’s confident issues related to Northern Ireland can be resolved in a way that doesn’t sour relations. He told the BBC the government has reassured Biden’s team it has “no intention of imperiling” Ireland’s peace process.
He also indicated that while the government listens “very carefully to our American friends,” it is not about to shift strategy on the Internal Market Bill, noting that Biden would be taking office after the end of the Brexit transition period on Dec. 31.
With deadlines fast approaching for BREXIT trade negotiations involving North Ireland, that Tweet is still rankling British officials today.
And Biden isn’t getting any better at handling these foreign policy issues, which his wife calls his ‘forte’, whereas Obama’s former Defence Sec Robert Gates called Joe ‘wrong on almost every foreign policy and national security issue for the last four decades’.
Here is Joe supposedly ‘fixing’ everything Trump broke so far as our relations with our foreign allies. If this is ‘fixing’ them, one shudders to imagine what wrecking them looks like.
Washington even “strongly urged” Boris Johnson to accept “unpopular compromises” such as aligning with EU food safety rules.
Responding to the revelations, one Tory MP told Politico: “America should remember who their allies are.”
Asked what the PM’s message to Mr Biden should be, they added: “Unfortunately he’s so senile he probably won’t remember what we tell him anyway.
“Unless an aide is listening I’m not sure he’s going to remember for very long.” —TheSunUK
It’s one thing for Joe to be called senile by people with a political ax to swing.
It’s quite another to make the case for it himself — on the world stage, no less. Even his wife has already had to reign him in, and embarrass him publicly:
Joe Biden called the Royal Air Force the ‘RFA’ while addressing US military personnel at RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk during his first-ever speech as US President on British soil last night.
The gaffe came after the 78-year-old President declared that the Anglo-American alliance forged during World War Two was the ‘strongest military and political alliance in the history of the world’.
Mr Biden told US troops: ‘These partnerships have been hardened in the fire of war. Generations of Americans and service members fought them. Like the original Bloody Hundredth, and those RFA pilots.’
He had already been admonished by his wife, First Lady Jill Biden, who told him to ‘pay attention’ as the President stared at troops positioned behind the stage at the military base.
The US commander-in-chief, the oldest ever occupant of the White House, has been the subject of repeated questions about his mental faculties and fitness to be in charge of the world’s largest nuclear arsenal. —DailyMail
‘Royal Air Force’, Joe. It’s not hard: ‘R.A.F.’
Admiring the ocean view there, Joe quipped he didn’t want to go home. Conservatives back in America would gladly have taken him up on the offer.
The left learned the insult ‘dotard’ from their favorite North Korean tinpot tyrant. Instead of desperately trying to make the insult stick at a lifelong businessman-turned-President whose faculties are still firing on all cylinders, how about saving it for the guy who can barely make it through breakfast without calling a lid?
