Creepy Uncle Joe has a border crisis on his hands and the situation is both accelerating and degenerating. Worse, he, his handlers, and their team don’t have any answers to it, much less a solution they find viable. And, it’s not the actual humanitarian and national security crisis devolving at our border that his overseers had him cause. It’s a more personal crisis. It’s the fact that he is more and more being called out on the fact that he hasn’t even visited the border and has no good, honest reason for that which would sit well with the electorate at large.
Biden’s excuses have also fallen flat.
I’ve been there before, and I haven’t — I mean, I know it well. I guess I should go down. But the — but the whole point of it is: I haven’t had a whole hell of lot of time to get down. I’ve been spending time going around looking at the $900 billion worth of damage done by — by hurricanes and floods and — and weather, and traveling around the world.— Joe Biden

Except that Biden’s travel has only included two short trips involving weather-related disasters – and one to California where his planned agenda was partially preempted by a wildfire – but over 20 trips to either his home or beach house in Deleware, and he’s only made one international trip.
Even his office’s official mouthpiece, Jennifer Psaki, hasn’t had anything to say on the issue that wasn’t an embarrassment.
He did drive through the border when he was on the campaign trail in 2008. And he is certainly familiar with the fact — and it stuck with him — with the fact that in El Paso, the border goes right through the center of town.— White House Press Secretary, Jennifer Psaki
That’s just sad. I’m no fan of Psaki but reading her statement just hurts and makes me feel sorry for her. Worse, she continued on with the statement that Biden had “worked on these issues throughout his entire career.” Except that there is absolutely no record of him doing anything involving immigration until his time as Obama’s Vice President, during which he did meet with some Central and South American leaders well away from the US-Mexico border.
Yep. Almost exactly like the real Border Crisis, Biden and Co. have nothing to stem or roll back his more personal border crisis, and more and more people on both side of the Divide are coming to realize that.
