While Joe Biden might have won the 2020 election, since that highly contested day, the President has been surrounded with rumors about his mental capacity, his dismal performance over the last year, and the possibility that Biden might not be calling the shots. Although just a rumor at this point, the Biden administration has been caught numerous times forgetting exactly who is running the country.
The most recent example happened on January 11, of this year, when President Biden traveled to Atlanta, Georgia to push voter reform. During his speech, he referred to Vice President Kamala Harris as “President.” This isn’t the first time that happened. But while Biden might fumble his talking points, a former President spoke just a few years ago about seeking a “third term.”
Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, former President Barack Obama discussed what it was like being in the White House and if he would have remained if he could have. Obama stated, “I used to say if I can make an arrangement where I had a stand-in, a front-man or front-woman, and they had an earpiece in, and I was just in my basement in my sweats looking through the stuff, and I could sort of deliver the lines, but somebody else was doing all the talking and ceremony, I’d be fine with that.”
Although Colbert laughed off the statement and the two carried on, recently, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was speaking on The View when she was asked if retirement was in her future. Psaki laughed, while stating, “I love working for President Obam…President Biden every single day.”
Some might see nothing more than just another Biden administration blunder, but given the words stated by Obama almost two years ago, users online were quick to connect the dots. “Obama is president. He can fuck up the country and save face while blaming O’Biden,” one commenter said. “There’s always a plan and Biden is the scapegoat.”
Another user wrote, “Speculation confirmed. Barry just needed a puppet.”
And one simply concluded, “Cats out of the bag now.”
