Biden Says Elon Musk’s Ties to Foreign Countries ‘Worth Being Looked At’ During Bizarre, Gaffe-Filled Presser

During a bizarre press conference on Wednesday, Joe Biden told reporters that it was worth “looking into” Twitter CEO Elon Musk’s alleged ties to foreign governments, and that his regime has “a lot of ways” of doing that.

A reporter had asked Biden if her thought Musk was a threat to U.S. national security because “the Saudis” have invested in Twitter. Congressional Democrats have been trying to make hay over this issue even though Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal purchased his stake in Twitter long before Musk took control of the company.

Biden gleefully took the bait, replying slowly and haltingly after a long chuckle, “I think … that Elon Musk’s cooperation and/or … technical relationships with other countries is worthy of being looked at.”

Biden told reporters that Musk would be targeted “whether or not he has done anything inappropriate,” and that “it’s worth being looked at.” He added: “And uh, um, and ah, but that’s all I’ll say.”

When a reporter called out, “how?” Biden mumbled ominously “there’s lots of ways.”

Biden held the rare formal press conference to spike the football after Democrats didn’t lose as badly as expected in the midterm elections.

“It was a good day, I think, for democracy,” Biden said. “And I think it was a good day for America.  Our democracy has been tested in recent years, but with their votes, the American people have spoken and proven once again that democracy is who we are.”

During the Q & A with hand-picked reporters, however, Biden struggled to remain coherent when his remarks were not scripted.

He started off by openly admitting that he had a list of ten pre-approved reporters to call on.

 

Biden also got confused while talking about the war in Ukraine when he referenced troops pulling out of the Iraqi city of Fallujah, when he meant the city of Kherson in Ukraine. Biden got back on track with an assist from the reporter.

One reporter asked Biden what he would do in the next two years to change the public’s low opinion of the direction of the country,  and Biden quickly fired back “nothing.”

Biden also repeated his dubious claim that no one making under $400,000 will pay more in taxes to fund his reckless and radical domestic agenda.

According to the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) the Democrats’ mislabeled “Inflation Reduction Act” will “increase taxes on millions of Americans across every income bracket, with more than half of the tax increases on Americans making less than $400,000 per year.”

Non-partisan analysts say the $740 billion “Inflation Reduction” boondoggle “raises taxes on the middle class and produces no meaningful deficit reduction when gimmicks are removed and the full cost is accounted for,” according to the U.S. Finance Committee.

Just a few months after it was passed, Biden on Wednesday acknowledged that he couldn’t “guarantee that we’re gonna get rid of inflation.” .

Biden scoffed at a reporter’s question about potential investigations into his corrupt and scandal-plagued son’s business dealings.

“Lots of luck in your senior year as my coach used to say,” he replied, before going into an incoherent rant about Republicans potentially impeaching him.
