Tuesday on MSNBC’s Deadline, Democrat presidential frontrunner Joe Biden had an awkward but revealing moment in which he declared that it was “probably best” he stopped talking.
“Way back in January 17 I wrote a piece — maybe the 15th — I wrote a piece for ‘USA Today’ saying that, you know, a pandemic is coming,” Biden ranted. “We have to be better prepared. We should have been in a position, I called for a while ago. I would enforce, enforce the Defense Production Act. I would be surging equipment and personnel. I would be moving in a direction where we had the United States military, which I called for several weeks ago, building hospitals like is finally happening in the National Guard helping in New York with, you know, at the Javits Center… Why doesn’t he just act like a president?” Biden concluded.
He added, “That’s a stupid way to say that but I really –” The host prompted him, “Go ahead,” but Biden begged off: “No. No. Probably best I don’t.”
Biden’s right. It’s best he stops talking altogether.
