Jesse Watters reacted with horror to Joe Biden’s latest interview where multiple statements had to be walked back by “unnamed US officials’ and questioned if Biden is really in charge.
Jesse said: “Is it me or do you guys get the feeling that Joe Biden is not really the president? Who is this unnamed “U.S. official”? Is he the president? Joe Biden is the commander-in-chief. He’s supposed to set foreign policy, but when he goes out there and sets it, there’s someone else behind the curtain saying, ‘No, no, no, no, no, no. That’s not really what our policy is.’ What?
“That answer tells me it’s not even up to Biden whether he runs again. Someone’s going to tell Joe if he’s running or not running, and he’s just going to do whatever they tell him. Remember, Jill Biden doesn’t even know if Joe is running and they sleep together.
“Obviously, both of them haven’t been told. Maybe it’s the unnamed U.S. official who will tell them. At this rate, Joe Biden can’t announce he’s running for re-election and the White House is probably going to walk it back and say, Official U.S. policy concerning the Biden campaign remains unchanged,’” he said.
On CBS Evening News Monday anchor Norah O’Donnell and senior White House correspondent Ed O’Keefe reported on President Joe Biden’s disastrous interview with 60 Minutes Sunday.
The hosts were stunned that many of Biden’s statements had to be walked back by staff after the interview
NORAH O’DONNELL: Well, there is fallout tonight after President Biden’s interview with 60 Minutes, comments he made about the pandemic, led stocks of three COVID vaccine makers to plunge, shares falling as much as 9 percent. CBS’s Ed O’Keefe reports from the White House.
ED O’KEEFE: President Biden’s conclusion on 60 Minutes Sunday that the COVID pandemic has ended prompted push-back from health experts and clarifications from top officials.
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: The pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID, we’re still doing a lot of work on it, but the pandemic is over.
O’KEEFE: Health and Human Services Secretary, Xavier Becerra, who held a photo op, promoting the latest COVID booster shot was asked what the President meant.
XAVIER BECERRA: Make no mistake, people are still dying. And what the President is saying is that we all want to get back to where we were before COVID.
O’KEEFE: While overall, case rates are dropping nearly 400 people are still dying each day with about 30,000 currently hospitalized.
And Dr. Anthony Fauci today warned that vaccination rates are too low to end the pandemic.
ANTHONY FAUCI: It is likely that we will see another variant emerge, and there’s already on the horizon.
O’KEEFE: Mr. Biden was also asked on 60 Minutes about whether he plans to run for reelection.
SCOTT PELLEY: You say that it’s much too early to make that decision. I take it the decision has not been made in your own head.
JOE BIDEN: Look, my intentions I said to begin with is that I would run again, but it’s just an intention.
Is it a firm decision that I’d run again? That remains to be seen.
