Biden Sets Back Russia Policy With Multiple Blunders

Ouch. When senior administration officials are walking back the President’s statements within minutes, it’s bad.

The White House clarified Sunday that President Joe Biden isn’t doing any ‘swaps’ of cyber criminals with Moscow – after Biden appeared to take at face value a proposal floated by Vladimir Putin to extradite any U.S. ransom hackers to Russia in exchange for sending any Russian hackers to the U.S.


Biden entertained an idea Putin floated in a TV interview that aired Sunday about extraditing ‘criminals’ who engaged in ransom hacking against either the U.S. or Russia when he was asked about it at a press conference.




Biden said he had been briefed on the idea in flight, and called it a potential sign of ‘progress’ – only to have his security advisor later note the U.S. already holds hackers to account.



The quick walk back was an illustration of the type of situation the White House may be trying to avoid by keeping Biden out of a joint press conference with Putin where the Russian former KGB officer might try to steer the event to his advantage.


Biden at the presser explained why he did not want to hold a side-by-side presser with the Russian strongman.


‘This is not a contest about who can do better in front of a press conference or try to embarrass each other,’ Biden said at the end of the G7 summit.


‘It’s about making myself very clear what the conditions are to get a better relationship with Russia. We are not looking for conflict. We are looking to resolve those actions which we think are inconsistent with international norms,’ he said.

    We have a toddler in the White House and presidency who is led by the hand by his fake doctor wife.
    It’s disgusting what is going there, it’s elder abuse.

    The theater here is truly absurd. Putin knows damned well he can buy whatever “cooperation” he needs from Biden. The only contentious issues will be about price. I’d be surprised if Joe didn’t leave a few of his bagman son’s business cards behind.

    Our Foreign Service diplomats won’t be needed for anything important any time soon. Joe gots this.

    Even Le Roi cannot defend this.
    Toddler describing Senile Joe may be generous.
    From the NY Post: “And the president of South Africa,” Biden, 78, said while pointing across the table.
    Apparently taken aback, Johnson said, “And, and, and the president of South Africa…as I said early on.”
    “Oh, he did?” Biden said, looking befuddled as his words trailed off.
    “I did…I certainly did,” Johnson said”
    Put a gag in his mouth. Take him out of the spot light. Put him in a nursing home. He is an embarrassment to the US.

    And Senile Joe confuses Syria with Libya
    Le Roi, defend this asshole.

  5. Le Roi du Nord

    Well mar, you still defend trump, from Thighland, cancer causing wind mills, HCQ curing coronavirus, to Purple Hearts, grab ‘em by the p&$$y , and Lee Harvey Oswald., and thousands of intentional lies, exaggerations, blunders. And you claiming Keith Hernandez is a murderer.

    You truly are a hypocrite.

    Covfefe !!

    And another lie by Le Roi.
    And still defending a liberal judge who watches babies being raped, who is still sitting jail hoping to get a plea deal.
    Now, tell me who is worse, you and the judge or President Trump?

  7. Jason

    Deflection from LeRoy, just like always.

  8. Le Roi du Nord

    What is the lie, mar?

  9. Mar

    HCQ curing the Chinese virus. Follow the science, Pervert Boy.

  10. Mar

    “And you claiming Keith Hernandez is a murderer.”
    And another lie, I already said it was a mistake, kind of like your “no nothing’s.”

  11. Le Roi du Nord

    Refresh our memory, there, mar.

  12. Mar

    Cannot wait for May 2022 when Pervert stops lying and says something relevant.

  13. Le Roi du Nord

    So your “mistake” is ok, and all of the gaffes, blunders, exaggerations, and outright lies that trump made are ok, but Biden, in your mind, is senile?


  14. Mar

    Wake me up when you say something relevant.

  15. Le Roi du Nord

    It’s all relevant to your long-standing hypocrisy. But you are nothing, if not consistent.

  17. Le Roi du Nord

    Sleepy old mar, king of the hypocrites.

  18. Mar

    Zzzzzzz. Has Pervert Boy said anything relevant yet?
