President Joe Biden’s behavior Sunday during a press conference at the G-7 Summit in Cornwall, United Kingdom should have us all concerned. Biden appeared exhausted, confused, uncertain and mumbled his way through; nonsensical at times.
When responding to a question from NBC News’s Peter Alexander about the Biden administration’s plan of action to take against Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, Biden mistakenly confused Syria with Libya not once, not twice, but three times.
“There is no guarantee you can change a person’s behavior or the behavior of their country. Autocrats have enormous power and they do not have to answer to a public,” Biden began. “The fact is that it may very well be if I respond in kind, which I will, that it does not dissuade him. He wants to keep going. But I think we’re gonna be moving in a direction where Russia has its own dilemmas, let us say, in dealing with its economy, dealing with — COVID, and dealing with, not only the United States but Europe writ large and the Middle East.”
“There is a lot going on where we can work together with Russia. For example, in Libya, we should be opening up the passes to be able to go through and provide — food assistance — an economic, I mean — vital assistance to a population that is in real trouble. I think I’m gonna very hard — by the way there are places where — I should not be starting off by negotiating in public here, but let me say it this way — Russia has engaged in activities which we believe are contrary to international norms,” he continued.
“They have also bitten off some real problems they’re gonna have trouble chewing on. For example, the rebuilding of Syria, of Libya — you know, this is — they’re there and as long as they’re there without the ability to bring about some order in the region, you can’t do that very well without providing or the basic economic needs of people, so I am hopeful that we can find accommodation where we can save the lives of people in, for example, in Libya consistent with the interests of — may be far different reasons — but for the same reasons.”
"Kids in Cages" Was Created Under the Obama Administration
Michelle Obama and Joe Biden would like you to believe that children being separated from their family at the border is a Trump policy, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. The have been several instances now when Democrats, trying to prove their point, used photographs of children in cages to attack Trump only to find out that the pictures were taken during the Obama Administration.
As reported in USA Today:
In a 2019 interview with nonpartisan think tank The Aspen Institute, Jeh Johnson, Barack Obama’s Homeland Security secretary, told NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly that the “cages” predate the Trump administration.
“Chain-link barriers, partitions, fences, cages, whatever you want to call them were not invented on January 20, 2017,” Johnson said.
Kelly asked Johnson about a 2014 photograph of him touring an Arizona facility for migrants along with former Gov. Jan Brewer. The picture is archived on the website for the Arizona Capitol Times.
That image was also part of another social media meme accusing Michelle Obama of lying about “kids in cages” during her DNC speech. Facebook user Eulalia Maria Jimenez posted it to her page on Aug. 18. Johnson is circled in red in the image.
Johnson explained the picture was taken during a spike in unaccompanied minors crossing the southern border of the country.
“The kids are being housed in the same facilities built under the Obama administration. If you want to call them cages, call them cages. But if the left wants to call them cages, and the Democrats want to call them cages, then they have to accept the fact that they were built and funded in FY ’15, and I was there,” Homan said, according to a transcript.
The Associated Press reported in late 2019 that an unprecedented 69,550 migrant children were held in U.S. custody over that year.
But Michelle Obama’s assertion that the Trump administration tore children from their families and threw them into cages alludes to “a frequent and distorted point made widely by Democrats,” according to the AP. The facilities designed during the Obama administration to temporarily hold migrants were used for a similar purpose by President Trump, the AP also concluded.
This information has a lot of trouble reaching a Democrat audience when they are fed constant lies from main stream media.
Abysmal Ratings For Biden's Address To Congress
For a president that got the highest recorded number of votes in history, ratings for his speeches and last nights address to Congress show that not many want to listen to him as only 11.6 million viewers tuned in.
To compare, here are the numbers for Trump’s speeches:
TV Ratings for Presidential Addresses:
No crowds at his rallies. No crowd at his inauguration. Empty chamber for his speech. Virtually no viewers at home.

Trump had over 36 million more viewers than Biden for his first speech and yet Biden received 81,000,000 votes in the presidential election.
Even according to vociferously pro-Biden Deadline, it was admitted that “Biden’s first address to a sparse Congress was one of the least watched in recent history.”
Deadline has Biden’s speech’s viewership as “down by 49 percent” compared to the Trump speech, although those numbers don’t add up very well. Their own article, given the best-case scenario, pegs Biden’s numbers at an anemic 13.5 million, tops, which is not even a third part of Trump’s numbers.
“It is worth noting that for the most part, the first joint address to Congress is usually some of the best viewership numbers a President gets over their time in office, as the novelty factor is still high. I mention that because, unlike Trump, Barack Obama, and other recent Commander In Chiefs, Biden has been a part of the national political life for decades.”
“As well, it’s not like the President isn’t literally giving a speech or remarks almost every day since he took office. Just sayin.”
