On a regular basis, we receive comments and feedback from readers questioning the wisdom of not honoring President Joseph R. Biden as that week’s top knucklehead. Our responses generally include some variation of this statement: We could justify Biden being KOTW every week, but we have to change things up a bit. However, there are other weeks in which Biden outdoes himself by putting on such an impressive display of buffoonery that we simply can’t ignore him. Such was the case this week.
Winner: Joe Biden’s presidency is disintegrating before our eyes, but the president is clueless as ever.
It’s difficult to believe that Joe Biden is still five days short of his first full year in office. He’s inflicted more damage on our country in 51 weeks than most Democratic presidents achieve in an entire term. But as poorly as his first year has gone, and as many bad weeks as Mr. Biden has had, this past week ranks at or near the top when it comes to incompetence and inanity. And it’s all due to his knuckleheadedness.
To properly frame Biden’s ineptitude, we must first detail the laundry list of devastating news which hit him this week, all for which he deserves full credit/blame. On Wednesday we learned that inflation last month reached the highest level in forty years hitting 7%. On Thursday, Senators Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) destroyed any hopes of Biden’s dream to abolish the filibuster by dismissing the idea outright. That same day, the Supreme Court shut down his unconstitutional vaccine mandates. And, of course, COVID cases across the country skyrocketed this week in red, blue, and purple states, even though Biden’s promise to “shut down the virus” was a key part of his election campaign. read more
