Biden slammed for ‘disgusting lie’ about Netanyahu in Time interview

President Joe Biden suggested that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is refusing to agree to a ceasefire in Gaza for his own selfish political reasons.

The relationship between the two leaders was already on the skids with Democrats needing to quell a Muslim mutiny over the war between Israel and Hamas. Biden’s remarks in an interview with Time magazine were slammed as a “disgusting lie” and “sociopathic” for a U.S. leader.

In the transcript of the interview that’s part of a propaganda campaign to portray Biden as a tough guy, the geriatric president is asked, “Some in Israel have suggested that Netanyahu is prolonging the war for his own political self-preservation. Do you believe that?”

“I’m not going to comment on that,” Biden said. “There is every reason for people to draw that conclusion. And I would cite that as — before the war began, the blowback he was getting from the Israeli military for wanting to change the constitu … change the court. And so it’s an internal domestic debate that seems to have no consequence. And whether he would change his position or not, it’s hard to say, but it has not been helpful.”

Biden’s comments come as he’s trying to force the Israelis into agreeing to his deal for a Gaza ceasefire with time running out to soothe the hurt feelings of Michigan Muslims who he desperately needs to turn out for him in the key battleground state.

“A disgusting lie,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “Tragically, the Biden White House is the most anti-Israel WH in history. Is there even a single Dem who will denounce Biden’s slander?”

“I want everyone to read what Biden said this morning,” Fox News host Mark Levin said of Biden’s remarks. “And what a loathsome, disgusting antisemite he is. Undermining Netanyahu because Biden demands that Israel surrender so Biden can declare peace in our time for his lousy, rotten reelection effort.”

“Joe Biden’s top priority is to oust Netanyahu. It has been for months. He will happily preserve Hamas in order to achieve that goal,” conservative commentator Ben Shapiro posted to X.

“This is all straightforwardly sociopathic,” said Omri Ceren, a national security adviser for Senator Cruz.

“Biden has mobilized unprecedented domestic and international pressure to slow Israel’s advance into Gaza. Bonkers campaigns. Politicizing US intel, leaking it, doing global diplomatic pincer moves where the US encourages allies to pressure Israel then tells the Israelis we can’t help them (relatedly, supporting binding UNSCRs knifing them), halting aid, threatening to halt more aid specifically if Israel moved into Rafah, the repeated ongoing ostentatious stunts about aid (airdrops and the pier), multiday news cycles about all of the above, etc. Now Biden is saying Netanyahu is prolonging the war for political reasons. Absolutely sociopathic,” Ceren wrote.

Others pointed out that Biden’s own stance toward Gaza is the one that’s rooted in politics.

“Biden has been incoherently pressuring Israel not to finish the job for months & ‘there is every reason for people’ to draw the conclusion that it’s been for Biden’s own political self-preservation. How soon will Biden demand Israel not defend itself against the attacks in the north?” Fox News contributor Guy Benson wrote on X.

More reactions to Biden’s backstabbing of the leader of America’s longtime ally.

Biden has reportedly been overheard cursing about his Israeli counterpart on multiple occasions and some Democrats, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), have called for regime change in Israel, hardly the way to treat a friend.
