Watch: Biden Embarrasses US on World Stage, Admits He Has No Clue What's Happening in His Admin

By C. Douglas Golden

It’s been one of the biggest diplomatic gaffes of the nascent administration of President Joe Biden. And according to Biden himself, he didn’t even know it was happening.

And mind you, we’re not talking a mistake of omission — like neglecting to send congratulations to Germany’s likely new chancellor, Olaf Scholz, because Biden forgot Deutschland was having an election. (Stupid Apple calendar — making you manually add an alert to “German general election” to get reminded.)

This was a sin of commission, instead: During a joint media briefing with French President Emmanuel Macron in Rome on Friday, Biden admitted the way the United States went about the AUKUS submarine deal — in which the U.S. and the United Kingdom reached an agreement to supply Australia with nuclear submarines, thus canceling a deal Australia had to buy diesel submarines from France and doing it behind France’s back — was “clumsy.” This was in part, the president said, because he “was under the impression certain things had happened that hadn’t happened.”

Let me reiterate: The president of the United States of America, the guy in the buck-stops-here seat in the White House who has been talking ceaselessly about how “America is back at the table” geopolitically, is either admitting or falsely claiming that he didn’t know about aspects of a submarine deal that caused America’s oldest ally to recall its ambassador.

Reuters noted that during the event, Biden and Macron “shared warm words, and friendly body language.” The rapport and bonhomie led one reporter to ask if the relationship between the White House and the Fifth Republic had been repaired.

“You’re asking me?” Biden said. When it came out that, yes, indeed, they were, Biden didn’t answer the question but conceded or feigned a good deal of ignorance.

“Well, the answer is: I think what happened was — to use an English phrase, what we did was ‘clumsy.’ It was not done with a lot of grace. I was under the impression certain things had happened that hadn’t happened,” Biden said, according to a White House transcript.

“And — but I want to make it clear: France is an extremely, extremely valued partner — extremely — and a power in and of itself. And so, I don’t know any reason that — we have the same values.”

Maybe this wasn’t as bad as it seemed: “What did you think had happened that had not happened?” the reporter asked next.

“I was under the impression that France had been informed long before that the deal was not going through. I, honest to God, did not know you had not been,” Biden said.

“But having said that, look, there’s too much we have done together, suffered together, celebrated together, and valued together for anything to really break this up.”

Try that one on your wife after you do something divorce-worthy and see how that works.

There are only two reasons this is remotely believable. One is that the chief executive of our beloved nation is Joseph Robinette Biden and, while past performance isn’t indicative of future results, it can be very suggestive of it. The other is that John Kerry, the administration’s climate change envoy — and a fluent French speaker — previously gave a French media outlet roughly the same excuse for the president.

“[Biden] literally had not been aware of what had transpired,” Kerry told BFMTV in a sit-down interview earlier this month translated by Fox News.

“And I don’t want to go into the details of it, but suffice it to say that the president, my president, is very committed to strengthening the relationship and making sure that this is a small event of the past and moving on to the much more important future.”

Kerry went on to say that the administration had “a relationship with France that is so much bigger than this moment of what happened with respect to a lack of communication,” although he added there was an “understanding that we have so much to work on.”

“Our commitment … to our ability to work together is much, much stronger to any of these differences over the last few days,” he continued. “President Biden looks forward to meeting with President Macron and I’m absolutely confident that the bigger issues we have to work on, about nuclear weapons, about cyber warfare, about climate … we have a lot of work to do, and we can’t get lost in a momentary event that I think we will get past very quickly.”

Right. Don’t tell that to France, which recalled its ambassadors to the United States and Australia after the trilateral arms agreement was reached last month, calling the deal a “stab in the back.”

My local news is posting that he is solving the supply chain problem while at that summit when it is in fact CALIFORNIA that is the problem along with the ship yards NOT BEING ACTIVE.

There are videos of the cranes sitting idle and nothing going on. No freight being moved nothing being done. This is 100 percent a manufactured crisis.
