JIM TREACHER: Old Man Yells at Mushroom Cloud.
“We have not faced the prospect of armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis… [Putin’s] not joking when he talks about potential use of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons because his military is, you might say, significantly underperforming… I’m trying to figure out, what is Putin’s off-ramp? Where does he find a way out? Where does he find himself in a position that he does not not only lose face, but lose significant power within Russia?”
Remember when Trump’s big mouth was gonna get us into World War Three?
Last week, Biden was trying to talk to dead people. This week, he’s trying to make us all dead people.
Why is the president of the United States saying this stuff in public? What is Biden’s off-ramp? How will babbling about this at a fundraiser convince Putin not to do it?
The answer, of course, is that Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. was an incredibly stupid man with diarrhea of the mouth even before he was caught in the throes of dementia. Now he’s a thousand times worse. He’ll just blurt out any old $#!+, especially if it makes life tougher for everybody else.
I hate Vladimir Putin. I also don’t want to die in a nuclear war. The Democrats need to do something about Grandpa Joe before he gets us all killed.
As always with a Biden gaffe, the timing is spectacular. As Jim Geraghty writes, “You know, now that I think about it, ‘Armageddon is coming’ probably isn’t a great message for Democrats in the midterm elections.”
No matter what though, Biden is smack-dab in the War Room monitoring the situation. Or not: Biden Warns Armageddon Is Coming, But It’s Time For Him To Enjoy Another Weekend in Delaware.
And no wonder — think of the upside! In 2011, the Huffington Post pondered: Could A Small Nuclear War Reverse Global Warming?
