Biden’s press conference was a complete disaster

If President Joe Biden's press conference on Wednesday was to build trust, it failed - terribly.

Although he spent most of it clearly calling on journalists from a list of "safe" questioners provided by his staff, he stumbled and bumbled and all too often made no sense at all. Plus, he repeated his bizarre "whispering" gimmick to emphasize certain points - when what it's actually emphasizing is his age.

On that note, he kept walking down memory lane, recalling how "in my day" cable news was like that; the Republican Party was like that and so on. He fights old wars in his head, or maybe just confused about the modern world.

Yet he could not remember what he said last week, and insisted he had not compared opponents of ending the Senate filibuster rules to pass the bill to nationalize the election law to Bull Connor and Jefferson Davis. Yet a few minutes later, he warned the same (democratic!) Senators that their supposedly infamous stance would hold on to them for the rest of their days.

Joe Biden did not give a clear answer on whether he would execute sanctions against Russia.

Then there was his "confession" in the end that he "forgot" that he is president, not a senator, as an implicit explanation for his disastrous first year. But in the past, he had insisted he has done more than any other president in history. What the hell?

His response about Ukraine was particularly confusing.

The issue is pretty straightforward: Vladimir Putin is threatening an invasion and will do so if he thinks he can get away with it; at least he will try to get the West to bribe him by promising him much of what he wants, without fighting.

Biden seemed to offer a single bribe by volunteering that NATO would not make Ukraine a member at some point. Even if that's true, why limit your options?

What's worse, at one point, the president suggested that Putin "have no choice but to invade because he has boxed himself in." At least we have think that was what Biden said, but his syntax made it impossible to say for sure.

Then he also said outright that Putin would win, albeit at a high price: "The cost of entering Ukraine in the form of physical loss of life for the Russians - they will be able to win over time, but it will be heavy . "

Oh, and Biden suggested that Russia might well get away with "a minor burglary." It's an invitation to take one piece of Ukraine now - and several pieces later. What an accident. No wonder his employees do everything they can to keep him away from the press.
