Biden hails Grand Canyon as ‘one of earth’s nine wonders… a haven of ironic species’

The more cognitively challenged an elderly person gets the more complicated life becomes, and for 80-year-old President Joe Biden life is pretty hard.

President Biden showed up Tuesday at an abandoned airfield a few miles south of Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona to declare a new national monument — the scheme being hatched by climate zealots in the administration to restrict future uranium mining in the area.

Rocking a presidential baseball cap and his trademark aviator sunglasses, Biden looked suspiciously as if he just stepped from the “Weekends at Bernie’s” movie set when he declared, “These are investments in our planet, our people, in America itself.”

But that’s not all he had to say, as the octogenarian president hailed the Grand Canyon as “one of the Earth’s nine wonders” of the world.

“Folks, it’s not hyperbole to suggest that there’s no national treasure, none that is grander than the Grand Canyon,” Biden said. “The Grand Canyon, one of the Earth’s nine wonders, wonders of the world. Literally. Think of that.”

“You know, it’s amazing. An enduring symbol of America to the entire world,” he continued. “The first time I saw the Grand Canyon years ago, I was a young senator. As I stood there and looked out, a phrase came to mind. It was instinctive. I said, this must be — this is God’s cathedral.”

Moments later he would correct himself, “As a matter of fact, I said nine. It’s one of the seven wonders of the world.”

Biden would also call the region “a haven of ironic species” as opposed to “iconic,” which the written speech reflected.

“These lands also support a range of ecosystems and plants from savannas, to sagebrush to ponderosa pine — a haven of ironic species like bats, bison, bighorn sheep and nearly 450 kinds of birds, including the bald and golden eagles,” he said.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story, as seen on Twitter/X:
