Democrat Joe Biden can be counted on to make humiliating blunders at his public appearances and his first State of the Union Address, held Tuesday night to a limited audience at the US Capitol. was no exception to the rule.
Democrats had hoped that Biden, who has a 37% approval rating, was going to give such a spectacular speech last night that it would reset all the damage the Democrat party has done to Americans ahead of the 2022 midterm elections.
However-what, what Biden did last night was so huge it even made Democrat Kamala Harris blush.
“Did Biden just say Putin is encircling Kyiv but he’ll never win the heart and soul of the Iranian people?,” Jack Posebiec tweeted.
Why- yes. Yes, Biden did do just that. Check it out:
Greg Price, a digital strategist, caught it: “LMFAO Kamala appears to mouth Ukraikian when Joe Biden said Iranian.”

Biden’s blunder comes just hours after Kamala, herself, made news go viral with a description of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia- when she said, “Ukraine is a country in Europe. It exists next to another country called Russia. Russia is a bigger country. Russia is a powerful country. Russia decided to invade a smaller country called Ukraine. So, basically that’s wrong.”
What a mess we are in with the Democrats in charge.
In what Democrats see as pandering to the Right- Biden did talk about border security when he said the USA needs “to secure the border and fix the immigration system.”
Biden did part ways with his progressive controllers when he talked about the defund the police movement, which he got busted on as well:
Joe Biden is again pretending that he funded police departments. He’s lying. And it was HIS party that voted to defund police.

Left leading Punchbowl politics described what they saw: “Gone were the bold proclamations that Washington, under Democratic control, would seek to remake America. Instead, Biden offered a catalog of what he sees as his successes, and a plea to get the rest done – somehow.”
Biden’s speech centered on events in Ukraine, and many Americans noticed that focusing on Ukraine was not focusing on America’s First policies that provide a quality of life for Americans.
“I hope Biden explains tonight why he surrendered America’s energy independence & apologizes for it. I’ll be watching from home. I refuse to submit to a Covid test to sit in a room of fully vaccinated people in a Capitol ringed with barricades to satisfy Joe Biden’s Covid theater,” Republican Senator Josh Hawley posted Tuesday.
Punch bowl reported:
“Without mentioning the Build Back Better Act once – bowing to reality that the package he envisioned is all but dead – Biden offered a deconstructed laundry list of the policy priorities he’d like to see get passed.
But in doing that, Biden also offered a harsh reminder to Democrats about just how much of his agenda has been left undone, stymied by a Congress he can neither convince nor control.
Here’s a list of the priorities Biden rattled off that he hasn’t been able to enact: the Paycheck Fairness Act, lowering prescription drug prices, paid leave, expanding background checks on gun sales, the Freedom to Vote Act and John Lewis Voting Rights Act and immigration reform.
In truth, Biden offered an interesting dichotomy last night.
He embraced his progressive credentials, calling for increasing the minimum wage to $15 per hour and setting aside more money to fight climate change. Biden still wants universal pre-K, higher taxes on corporations and the rich, and more affordable housing and better health care. He scolded CEOs to “lower your costs, not your wages.” Biden’s plan to fight inflation is to spend.”
Fox News reported early Wednesday morning:
Biden’s speech marked the most consequential of his lifetime as U.S. inflation soars and Eastern Europe devolves into war between Russia and Ukraine. Many members of Congress attending the speech were wearing small lapel ribbons of blue and yellow to show solidarity with the people of Ukraine.
During his speech, Biden announced that his administration is banning Russian planes from American airspace in retaliation for Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, in addition to economic sanctions and other measures he has taken in recent days.
Aside from the international turmoil, Biden’s speech also focused on domestic issues as inflation reached a 40-year high and gasoline prices hit their highest level in eight years. In addition, a recent Fox News Poll put Biden’s approval rating at a dismal 43%, the lowest of this presidency, and only 37% approve of his handling of the economy.
