Thankfully, President Joe Biden has returned home from what ended up a disastrous and unfortunate series of remarks he made during his whirlwind trip to Eastern Europe last week.
As The Daily Wire reported, the president made a number of gaffes and apparently misspoke on a number of occasions, some of which experts say could have shocking national security implications, such as his big speech on Saturday evening during which he literally called for regime change in Russia, which goes firmly against U.S. policy.
“Ukraine will never be a victory for Russia, for free people refuse to live in a world of hopelessness and darkness. For God’s sake, this man cannot remain in power,” Biden said during a speech in Poland, immediately stirring controversy and causing the White House to clean up his mess.
The media, on all sides, correctly interpreted his closing remarks as a call for Vladimir Putin to be eliminated, by whatever measure, which right then and there could have literally sparked World War III, critics say.
White House panics
Within one hour or so of Biden’s call for Putin to be thrust out of power, the White House, for the third time during his trip, was forced to play damage control, insisting in a statement that the president didn’t mean what he actually said.

Clearly, Biden said what he said, and there was not much left open for interpretation, as much as the White Houses tried to sell a new interpretation of Biden’s words afterward.
The president’s remarks about removing Putin were so clear that it even triggered liberal mainstream media networks to run with the story after his speech.
Other huge gaffes
Sadly, that wasn’t the first embarrassing screw-up by the U.S. president, as the White House was also forced to reinterpret his words on two other occasions from remarks he made in the days prior.
One of those remarks came during Biden’s meeting with a group of soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division, in which he essentially told them they would soon be deploying to fight Russians on the streets of Ukraine.
Prior to that, Biden was asked by a reporter how the U.S. and the West would react if Putin deployed chemical weapons in Ukraine, to which Biden said there would be a response “in kind,” which literally means the U.S. and NATO would use chem weapons on Russia.
At a time when the world is on the brink of the next world war, it’s quite worrisome that we have someone like Biden, who can barely sputter out a complete sentence without getting totally confused, messing up so badly on the world stage. His words, no matter how confusing, carry great weight, and have serious national security implications. God help us all with this clown in the White House.
