MSNBC’s Jonathan Capehart sat down with President Joe Biden in an interview that aired Friday night on the low-rated show “The Reid Out.” Capehart proceeded to lob some questions right out over the plate for the squinty-eyed POTUS, who when he wasn’t looking confused, appeared to nearly doze off at more than one point.
However, he did stay alert enough to answer a number of Capehart’s hackneyed questions, among them the same tired posit and implication that Republicans are the single greatest threat to women everywhere.
When asked how he would deal with the potentiality of a GOP-controlled Congress, the great unifier-in-chief said he would “Veto everything they do.”
But first, Capehart he asked the president about the economy, which tends to be the most pressing issue for the average voter.
“You unveiled a new attack line earlier today,” Capehart began. “You dropped it here just a moment ago. But the full line was Mega MAGA trickle down. Surely you consider your student loan forgiveness program to be an antidote to that. But here’s a problem, I think, for you and Democrats. Despite all the good economic news; low unemployment, record job creation, wage increases, Social Security, cost of living adjustment, to 8.7 percent, the highest in 40 years.”
The host continued, “And yet poll after poll shows that Americans, the American people trust Republicans on the economy and think that Republicans should control Congress. How do you how do you break through that?” he asked.
“First of all, that I’m not sure about the polls because, you know, the way people conduct polls today, it’s hard. Ninety percent of it, as you get on a telephone where you have to call seven times to get somebody to answer the phone. Number one,” Biden dubiously claimed.
“Number two, a lot of what we’ve done and we passed has not kicked in yet. For example, you know, we have all this money to rebuild highways, bridges, internet, etc., but it’s going to take time. It’s not all happening overnight. It’s not like we passed a law and all of a sudden the highways and bridges are all functioning.”
A real journalist at that point might have asked, ‘Mr. President, are we faced with an epidemic of highways and bridges that aren’t functioning?’
Probably too much to ask for, so Biden continued with a series of non-sequiturs and incomplete thoughts, as is his custom.
“It’s not like we’re in a position where we’re saying no senior, which we do, is going to have to pay more than $2,000 a year for the drug costs. Even so, some are paying 13, 14, 15 with helping their families because the cancer drugs and the like, it hadn’t kicked in and didn’t kick in until next year,” he argued.
“So a lot of what we’ve done, people are, are hurting. They’re hurting because, you know, when you when you take away that margin for people sitting around the kitchen table and they’re paying, you know, three times as much or two times or one and a half times as much for the gasoline, it matters.”
“I grew up in a family where when that occurred, it was a discussion at home. And so I think this is a process of people making sure that what we say we’re doing really is going to happen. And they and so that’s why these last several weeks I’m doing is saying, here’s what we’re for. Here’s a third for and make a choice and vote. And I think people are going to show up and vote like they did last time,” he predicted.
Capehart asked about the codification of Roe v. Wade, which if Democrats could do, they would have done so, considering they currently have control of the legislative and executive branches of government; added to which is the inconvenient fact the ruling has been overturned.
“One of the things you said you’re for, Mr. President, is codifying Roe. You said that, you’ve said you need 51 or 53 seats in order, in the Senate in order to make that happen. But what happens if Republicans take control of Congress? How are you going to protect women?
“Veto anything they do,” Biden answered.
“They have to get, for them to make Dobbs wo–, for them to outlaw Roe, outlaw the right of a woman, to make a choice with her doctor, to not make exceptions for rape and incest and etc., and pass it out of the Congress to make it the law of the land. The president has to sign it. I’ll veto it.”
When asked by Capehart about the possibility of running for reelection in 2024, Biden gave this stunning Orwellian response, the absurdity of which is even a lot for a regime whose governing philosophy is founded on ignoring such truths.
“The only reason to be involved in a public life is ‘can you make life better for other people?” he proclaimed.
