President Biden can’t seem to give even a brief address without screwing it up.
In his Memorial Day address at Arlington National Cemetery, Biden said that “Democracy never been good” and quickly corrected himself by saying, “perfect.”

That was awkward.
Sure, it was him misspeaking as we all do sometimes, but whoa, Nelly! That was bad!
It was near the culmination of his speech and was a central point of what he was saying.
But it wasn’t just the gaffe, it was a botched opportunity for “unity” that he said was a goal of his but has completely failed to deliver. Instead, he chose to continue to subtly divide Americans in his speech.
As he slurred through the brief address, he brought up the “enemies of democracy” that threaten the “very soul of America” — presumably the 71 million “Ultra-MAGA extremists” that voted for the “Great MAGA King” in 2020.
The entire speech was lackluster at best.
Biden, of course, brought up the loss of his beloved son Beau who died of a brain tumor 7 years ago. While we normally knock Joe for inappropriately doing this at various speaking events, this is the one day that we won’t bust his chops over it. Beau Biden died on May 30, 2015. Having this anniversary be on Memorial Day must be double the hit for a dad who has outlived his son.
Still, it’s pretty rich that he’s trying to empathize with Gold Star Families by speaking about his own loss of his beloved son from a tragic medical condition when it was Biden’s bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan that cost the lives of 13 troops in August 2021 in a deadly terror attack at the Kabul airport in the chaos that can be laid directly at the feet of his administration.
Even during the Dignified Transfer of the 13 service members killed because of his administration’s incompetence, POTUS looked like he had somewhere else he’d rather be. Disgusting.
But he dares talk about the sacrifice of those that willingly put their lives on the line to serve their country after he treated those troops so flippantly? Shameful.
Watch the whole speech here:
Biden speaking about veterans just doesn’t ring authentic after the avoidable situation in Afghanistan that created more than a dozen new Gold Star Families.
Check out Doug’s latest book, The Art of Joe: The Political Brilliance of President Biden. If you have left-leaning family members, workmates, or classmates, to buy several copies and place them in common areas. Make sure you have your video camera ready for when they pick it up and thumb through it because they will be triggered which will make for a great viral video to share across social media. Also, buy a couple for the GOP NeverTrumpers that you know. Finally, both the book’s cover and the epilogue, Notable Quotable Joe are worth the price of admission. We’ve included before and after Biden on Afghanistan. Jen Psaki will no likey this book, but you will. BTW, the book is 95% bereft of any content. Just like Biden’s head.
