President Joe Biden made a complete mess of himself and United States policy during his trip to Poland, where he made a number of gaffes, some so serious that many believed they could have escalated into the beginnings of a World War III scenario.
One of those humiliating gaffes that had national security implications was when the commander-in-chief suggested to a group of the U.S. Army’s 82nd Airborne Division that they would soon be deployed to Ukraine. The White House, and the president himself, later sought to “clarify” that remark, but only made the situation even worse, according to Fox News.
When pressed on whether or not he had accidentally revealed that U.S. troops would be deployed to the streets of Ukraine, Biden immediately backtracked and attempted to explain what he “really” meant, though his alternate explanation led to yet another potential breach of leaking classified information.
“I was referring to being with, and talking with, the Ukrainian troops that are in Poland,” Biden said, when asked about his comments that suggested U.S. troops would be sent to Ukraine from Poland.
That prompted Fox News’ Jacqui Heinrich to ask White House Director of Communications Kate Bedingfield if Biden had just inadvertently revealed that Ukrainian troops were being trained in Poland, an assertion that was denied early on in the war.
Bedingfield replied, “No,” adding, “The troops that he met with in Poland routinely interact with Ukrainians. That is something that’s known. … That is in no way revealing compromised information. That being said, there’s nothing further that I have to say on that beyond what the president said yesterday.”
Yet another reporter doubled down, flustering the White House official even more. “Are they training in Poland or not?” the reporter asked.
“There’s nothing no further detail that I can add on that, except to say that there is regular interaction. As you saw, we were there near the border, and there’s regular interaction between those troops that he saw and Ukrainians,” Bedingfield responded.
In other words, Biden’s careless words during his trip to Poland were a clear and present danger to the United States and the rest of the Western world. It’s simply unacceptable that we have a president who can barely form a coherent sentence, let alone botch important messaging that could literally lead to a nuclear response from our greatest adversary. He needs to go. Now.
