Prepare yourself — this might be the first time you heard this, but President Joe Biden held a town hall event on CNN last week. The most popular president in American history failed to fill a single room. At least a third of the people sitting in front of him were reporters who were on the clock to to cover the event.
The clips in the video below show you the general mode of the president throughout the event. President Biden answered questions in the same way he always does — with professional degrees of misdirection and embarrassing levels of gibberish. It was truly a sight to behold if nothing else but for entertainment value.
We would be lying to you if we said there was really anything of substance here. He does appear to clash with CNN host Don Lemon a few times, but it doesn’t really feel like the progressive pundit was really challenging the pundit at all. If anything, it looked like he was mainly there to reaffirm leftist talking points, which the president is known to forget that he’s supposed to uphold half of the time.
It wasn’t a complete waste of time, however. We did get a few classic Biden moments that are sure to be prime meme material for the foreseeable future. At one point, the president said that “you can’t stop the American people from voting. We tried that last time.”
Indeed, Mr. “President.”
After watching the video, we’re confident that you’ll come away with the same impression we did. Apart from being patently boring and ridiculous most of the time, it’s clear that Joe Biden is not now, never was, and never will be the person actually in charge here. His handlers are effectively splitting the responsibilities of the office, and doing so particularly inadequately.
Here’s the DC Short with the full clip.
