Former Obama Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta blamed President Joe Biden’s Putin gaffes on the President’s Irish heritage.
You made have noticed President Biden’s Putin gaffes, several mis-statements in public concerning Russia and Vladimir Putin, have many concerned that Biden is ratcheting up hostilities. Mostly recently, Biden said Russian President Putin “cannot remain in power,” The White House later walked back those words. Biden has also told American troops in Poland to be prepared for what “[y]ou’re going to see when you’re there” in Ukraine, a statement which some reasonably misunderstood as signaling an imminent American deployment into the country. Biden even said that he would respond to any use of Russian chemical weapons “in kind“, but refused to explain what he meant in using the phrase.
Well, one person reading the Biden tea leaves is former Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta. According to Fox News, Panetta explained his opinion on Biden’s Puttin gaffes in an interview on CNN:
I happen to think that Joe Biden, you know, he’s Irish, really has a great deal of compassion when he sees that people are suffering. And I think it overwhelmed him in the sense of seeing all of the horrors that were resulting from this war.Former Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta
Don’t believe us? Hear it for yourself.
As you can imagine, people on social media had thoughts.
It’s almost as if Biden’s apologists have run out of excuses. Panetta is scraping the bottom of the barrel here. If you watch the video, he’s clearly looking for something to say before he says it. This was the best he could come up with at the time on the fly.
Seems like we heard this before in some form or another.
Nonetheless, the Biden Gaffe Machine™ keeps rolling along as we head toward, possibly, another world war. We’re so glad that the “adults” are back in charge.
