Here's Your Friday Night Laugh: CBS Gives Us a Wonderful Freudian Slip About Joe Biden

As we reported earlier, Joe Biden had a Trilateral Summit with leaders from South Korea and Japan on Friday at Camp David. 

I don't know how their meetings went, but the joint press conference was a horror show for Joe Biden. He seemed so confused and out of it, reading robotically and badly his scripted remarks, not knowing the title of the Prime Minister of Japan he just had a meeting with, and attacking former President Donald Trump and the concept of placing "America First." At the end of his remarks, he started to leave, not seeming to remember his ear piece was attached to the podium, and it ripped right out of his ear. Then he also just left, without shaking hands with, or even acknowledging the other leaders.

The whole thing showed how Biden's confusion is getting worse. Add that to his low approval, as well as multiple polls that have had former President Donald Trump beating him in a rematch, and the Democrats have to be losing their minds about what to do with Biden.

Turns out most Americans also think Joe Biden isn't going to be re-elected according to a new Fox poll.

I think those people are right, but we have to wait to see into the future to know for sure. Or maybe not. Maybe CBS has some knowledge that they would like to share with us and they've taken a little trip into the future, because this is what they posted earlier on X. They were writing about the Summit at Camp David and they had quite the Freudian slip.

BREAKING - YOUR REACTION: @CBSNews just called @JoeBiden

"Former President Biden". What is going on?


People loved it, and that got a lot of people talking about how they could have made such a slip. 

Perhaps it was some wag's nod to the recent report about Joe Biden's pseudonym, "Robert L. Peters," that he used in communications with his son and others. Why do you use a pseudonym even with your Vice Presidential staff if you're above board and not doing anything shady? Perhaps since we saw White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre get caught, tweeting from her own account like she was Joe Biden, apparently thinking she was in his account, it's an acknowledgment that she's the one in charge (God help us all).

CBS, of course, deleted the post. But it does sound like someone at CBS thinks Joe Biden is going to be out soon. 

But no worries, CBS, the voters will make it true soon enough.



Biden's Trilateral Summit Press Conference Is a Mess, He Even Attacks Putting 'America First'

Joe Biden was at Camp David on Friday for a trilateral summit with President Yoon Suk Yeol of the Republic of Korea and Prime Minister Fumio Kishida of Japan. After meeting with them, they then held a joint press conference. 

It was just a mess, even by Joe Biden's standards. 

First, he looked awful while he "politely" told members of the press to get out. Then he smirked while they were being urged out by his handlers.

We've written in the past about Biden's confusion at other events like this. But now he's given up any pretense and is just straight reading remarks off notes---and even having trouble with that. He sounded like he had no idea what he was reading. 

Then he seemed completely confused about who was supposed to go next.

How can anyone look at that and feel secure in their leader, that this is who is representing us to the world? He's supposed to be the leader of the free world, but he can't do the smallest thing without help and direction.

Biden was supposed to be yielding to the president of the Republic of Korea but he didn't seem to understand that. Then he didn't seem to know the correct title of Prime Minister Kishida either, the guy that he had just had a meeting with. The announcer helpfully said he was the "Prime Minister of Japan," and you can hear Biden on the hot mic then trying to correct the announcer, wrongly, "President." 

Kishida just smiled and tried to go with it, but God knows what he must have been thinking. If this is what we see in public, who knows how bad it must be in the meetings behind the scenes. 

This next clip is truly shameful. Joe Biden attacked former President Donald Trump's "America First" policy in front of foreign leaders.

To Biden, putting "America First" is bad. He would never think to do that. How can he even act as the leader of this country, when he makes comments like that? Biden defied all logic by trying to argue that makes us "weaker, not stronger." He shows that America is not first to him in so many of his actions. He also falsely claimed that Trump "walked away from the world."

Donald Trump was responsible for historic peace agreements in the Middle East,  for example; he never walked away from the world. What he did as an American leader was prioritize American interests -- as he should. Unfortunately, Biden doesn't understand that's supposed to be part of the job. And people wonder why things have gone to heck in a handbasket under Joe Biden? This is a big reason why. 

Of course, he refused to comment on the appointment of a Special Counsel in regard to the probe into his son, Hunter.

Biden finished off with a moment of confusion as well. He forgot to take out his earpiece when he was done, so as he started to walk about from the podium, it ripped out of his ear because it was attached to the podium. At the same time, he just walked away from the podium, without regard to the two other leaders left standing there.

The two other leaders shake each other's hands, but Biden is already booking it away from them, without even a look back.

This was truly embarrassing, and I have to think the other leaders know---which is why bad actors are now emboldened around the world. 

Biden was still going on at least a partial vacation to Lake Tahoe on Friday, after the summit. He's supposed to be in Hawaii on Monday to survey the damage from the Maui fire. I think it's too early because they're still searching for people, and I hope he doesn't impede that. They're sending him because of his "no comment" response that was so bad; they're trying to clean that up. Hopefully, they don't have him make any remarks beyond offering help. We don't need more "no empathy" Biden there.
