These are uncommonly hectic times for America and world. With political crises unfolding at home, and terrorist attacks on our allies abroad, the nation and its leaders are being stretched thin as they attempt to deal with all of it.
It doesn’t help matters that the United States Congress is crippled by the ineptitude and ego of its Republican “leaders” in the House of Representatives. They still can’t manage to select their own Speaker after having ousted the one that took them fifteen votes to elect just nine months ago. In the process the GOP is embarrassing themselves and grasping at preposterous excuses for why their incompetence is all the fault of Democrats.
Lacking any coherent explanation for their humiliating failures, Republicans are struggling to shift attention away from themselves and unto President Biden. The problem with that strategy is that they haven’t got any rational criticisms of Biden either. Consequently, they are stuck with having to invent complaints that bear no resemblance to reality. For instance, the Republican National Committee (RNC) just tweeted that “Americans are still being held hostage by Hamas terrorists — and Joe Biden is at the beach.”

The GOP tweet seeks to portray Biden as neglecting his presidential duties at a time of dire circumstances. Never mind that Biden just returned from a historic diplomatic mission to Israel. And that’s not all. The RNC’s tweet is so dishonest that even Fox News was compelled to rebut it with the facts. Their reporter, Alexandria Hoff, noted that…
“The President has been anything but off the grid while here in Delaware. [In addition to speaking with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu] the President also spoke with his national security team this morning. Pope Francis as well. Plus the leaders of Germany, France, Italy, the UK, and Canada too. So the President’s line then, here in Delaware, was very busy today. Even on that breezy beach walk you were just talking about, the President was on his cell phone during a portion of that.”

So Biden, according to Fox News, was actually hard at work on behalf of our Israeli allies and the American hostages in Gaza. Meanwhile, what were Republicans in Washington doing while “Americans are still being held hostage by Hamas terrorists”? Well, they called a recess and left town. But even before that they weren’t getting anything done for the hostages or anyone else because they are too incompetent to govern. Consequently, the House of Representatives is going on three weeks without a Speaker. Which means that nothing is being accomplished and they might as well be at the beach.
Yet somehow, the RNC is upset about Biden spending a few minutes strolling with his wife after a hard day of complex and sensitive negotiations with world leaders. But they don’t seem the least bit concerned that the GOP in Congress is in a self-imposed vegetative state.
What’s more, their Dear Leader, Donald Trump, is busying himself with similar memes of Biden at the beach, along with pertinent messages about Mitt Romney being a loser (four of those), and fake video of Trump hitting a golf ball that knocks Biden down several times. All while “Americans are still being held hostage by Hamas terrorists.” Trump also posted a flagrant lie saying that…
“The fight in GAZA is ‘coming home’ to the USA. The tens of thousands of strong young men from the Middle East, that have already ‘invaded’ our Country, and are continuing to come, totally unchecked, will become a problem the likes of which we have never seen before. Crooked Joe Biden is a very ignorant (STUPID!) man, who has NEVER been right on a foreign policy issue in his life. CLOSE OUR BORDER, NOW. STOP THE ONSLAUGHT, STOP THE INVASION!”
Trump doesn’t reveal where he got the “news” that “tens of thousands” of scary Middle Easterners “have already ‘invaded’ our Country.” Probably from the same place that he’s presently sitting on, rather than doing anything constructive for the American people. And he has the gall to malign Biden’s intelligence? All of which makes him the perfect leader for Republicans who are likewise engaged in infantile hostilities and exercising nothing but their lying tongues.
