Biden’s ‘Horrendous Gaffe’ Could Have Major Repercussions

ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1953: Dr. Jonas Salk announces that he has successfully tested a vaccine to prevent Polio, clinical trials began the next year.

President Joe Biden went off script during a speech in Poland, saying “For God’s sake, this man [Russian President Vladimir Putin] cannot remain in power.”

Roughly 45 minutes later, the White House released a statement walking back Biden’s comment.

“The president’s point was that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over his neighbors or the region,” a White House official said in a statement. “He was not discussing Putin’s power in Russia, or regime change.”

The following day, U.S. Ambassador to NATO Julianne Smith reiterated that “the U.S. does not have a policy of regime change in Russia, full stop.”

Biden’s remark was met with criticism, with one lawmaker urging the president to stay on script.

“He gave a good speech at the end, but as you pointed out already, there was a horrendous gaffe right at the end of it,” said Sen. James Risch (R-ID), the top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

“I wish he would stay on script. Whoever wrote that speech did a good job for him. But my gosh, I wish they would keep him on script,” he added.

Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH) said Biden’s speech was “very strong, despite the ad-lib at the end, and the gaffe at the end.”

Some critics say the White House’s walk-back was worse than Biden’s initial off-script remark.

Rep. Mike Waltz (R-FL) said the “flip-flipping” damages Biden’s credibility and is “damaging to our ability to deter Putin.”

“And the commander in chief has to be taken seriously. I don’t think he’s taken seriously right now,” Waltz said.

French President Emmanuel Macron cautioned against escalating the situation in Ukraine.

“I wouldn’t use this type of wording because I continue to hold discussions with President Putin,” Macron said. “We want to stop the war that Russia has launched in Ukraine without escalation — that’s the objective.”

  1. Trump Supporter says:

    You can’t blame me. I voted for Trump

    1. Thomas Voute says:

      Yes, you voted for dishonest, cheating candidate, who was trying to destroy a legitimate election and who does not even pay his taxes, by submitting wrong, tax-returns and who has absolutely no experience in foreign politics and “loves” to hang around with dictators…

    2. Beverly Bradshaw says:

      I VOTED FOR TRUMP ALSO – NO WAY WOULD I HAVE VOTED FOR BIDEN – HE IS A CHEATER, VERY CORRUPT, INCOMPETENT, SENILE. I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT THE CONGRESS HASN’T INITIATED IMPEACHMENT CHARGES OR INVOKED THE 25TH AMENDMENT. HE HAS TO GO ASAP. WHEN WILL THEY WAKE UP. WHO IS RUNNING THE WHITE IT – IT CERTAINLY ISN’T BIDEN. IS OBAMA GETTING HIS WISH FOR A THIRD TERM – JUST TO SIT IN THE BASEMENT IN SWEATS WITH EAR PIECE AND TELL BIDEN WHAT TO DO???? INTERESTING QUESTION. BIDEN HAS TO GO BEFORE HE REALLY PUTS AMERICA INTO WWIII. HE IS TRYING REALLY HARD TO DESTROY AMERICA.

    Fer cryin’ out loud, dum bidum shouldn’t even be allowed out of his basement, even to get an ice cream cone!
    And where has Waltz been, with a statement like: “And the commander in chief has to be taken seriously. I don’t think he’s taken seriously right now,” Waltz said.
    Since WHEN has bidum EVER been taken seriously by ANYONE with any common sense and a set of eyes and ears to watch & see what the heck he has mumbled since stumbling illegally into “office”. He is the laughing stock of the world, especially our enemies.
    And we wouldn’t even be here if “someone” who DOES know how to think and act without cue cards & puppet masters were still where he should be.
    Why would anyone have to make comments about someone in the highest position in our Nation needing to stay “ON SCRIPT”???
    Good Grief, help us Lord!
    But as I’ve said before: It HAD to happen this way in order for the DEPTH of corruption in this Country to be fully & utterly revealed.

  3. This is definite proof that CHEATER Joe Biden has “completely lost his mind to dementia and old age senility” for he cannot remember from one day to the nexroAt day what he has said!! What is really frightening is that the Pentagon says that Russian PM Putin is “suffering with bowel cancer and he too is losing his mind too because of it”!! Both leaders of the two biggest countries nuclear weapons are in a fight threatening their use with their minds going or gone completely, what could possibly go wrong with that???????????????????????????????????? Where is the story on that world news media??????????????????????????

  4. Alan1018 says:

    If there is anyone who should not remain in power it’s these leftists intent on sending America down the drain!

  5. Thomas Voute says:

    President Biden did NOT state the the regime in Russia should be changed. He stated that Putin should go. There is a vast difference between those two statements.
    President Biden is correct by suggesting the Putin should go. Putin is a dictator that give Russia’s population not freedom and attacks and destroys free countries with out any reason.
    Here some USA citizens criticize him and want him out….Do you really want a president like Putin or a president that fights for your freedom. Yes, no one is perfect, but choosing between Biden and Putin should be an easy response for every freedom loving American Citizen.
    Unfortunately, as long as Putin is in charge, there will be no peace in eastern Europe.

      Putin is the regime in russia… he had been for 20 years. You can’t oust a dictator(even one called a president) without a regime change. And who the frick ever said it was a choice between Putin and Biden?? Biden gets criticized because his irrational policies help embolden these wack jobs globally, and weaken this country on the global scale. The dollar is in jeopardy, energy independence was nixed on day one, and the guy can’t go a day without sounding like a spoiled brat that believes he’s better than everyone else is. He can barely speak publicly without cramming both feet into his mouth and jabbering incoherently. Hey everyone, we need to figure out a way to “disseminate” these food shortages…. there’s your guy. So, after that, my question to you is….
      From which solar system do you hail? Because it certainly doesn’t sound like this one!
