Never underestimate President Joe Biden’s capacity to get things wrong, after all, he has a nearly 50-year career of doing just that.
Apparently feeling enough time has passed since the unprecedented raid on the Mar-a-Lago home of former President Donald Trump, very likely his chief opponent in 2024, Biden came out of hiding this week after an extended absence brought about first by Covid isolation and then by a long vacation to take a trip to Pennsylvania.
In the event the nation forgot how scrambled the 79-year-old president’s brain appears to be, he served up a fresh reminder while talking about crime when he started rambling about playing basketball on the wrong side of Wilmington, Delaware.
“He used to go down in the East Side, what they call the bucket. Highest crime rate in the country. There’s a place where I was the only white guy that worked as a lifeguard down in that area, on the East side,” he said. “And, you know, you could always tell where the best basketball in the state is, where the best basketball in the city is. It’s where everybody shows up.”
Biden would switch his focus to gun control and make a pretty outlandish statement while mentioning the southern border with Mexico.
“You know what the Mexicans, Mexico, which has real problems causing us real problems? You know what their biggest complaint is? Can’t we stop the gun trafficking across the southern border, into Mexico?” the president claimed.

Keep in mind that somewhere around 4 million illegal immigrants have crossed the border on Biden’s watch in under two years — and this does not count the hundreds of thousands of known got-aways. Mexico has become a conduit funneling an historic wave of humanity to the U.S. border, enticed in large part by Biden’s policies. A border largely controlled on the Mexican side by drug cartels smuggling massive amounts of fentanyl into the U.S, resulting in thousands of deaths brought on by overdosing.
The frail president also advocated for gun control on Tuesday while mocking “brave right-wing Americans” who think the Second Amendment was designed to protect against tyranny.
“Right now, you cannot go out and buy an automatic weapon. You cannot go out and buy a cannon,” he said, regurgitating an inane analysis he has made before. “And for those brave right-wing Americans who say it is all about keeping America as independent and safe, if you want to fight against a country, you need an F-15 and you need something a little more than a gun.”
Of course, as a former member of the Obama administration, it may not have been advisable for Biden to bring up gun-running.
Is he talking about the Obama/Holder operation to illegally smuggle guns across the border? You know, operation “Fast and Furious?” He is, right?

It was the administration he was a part of that ran guns to Mexico.

The last administration he was in was running the guns down there themselves.

That was too long ago for him to remember. He can barely remember what he ate for breakfast.
