President Biden has a habit of talking about something he’d like to do but then following it up with “they won’t let me” or something similar. Today that happened again, where Biden blamed “them” for dashing his dream of flying in an F-22 Raptor:
Speaking to the troops in Langley, Biden mentions the F-22 Raptor:
"Oh God, I'd love to go up in one of those. I ask, I'm your commander-in-chief. Why the hell can't I command you to let me go up with you? But you know, they won't let me do that."

“They” seem to keep fairly tight control of the president.
Again. As the President.
DO NOT EVEN JOKE ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE NOT LETTING YOU DO THINGS
People are watching, man. Good lord. https://t.co/Y3QlVMUyfd

Again with the “they”— who is telling the most powerful man in the world what he can and cannot do? https://t.co/M8BPvzDDXZ

But maybe there’s a good reason “they” won’t let Biden do it:
It's also a single-seat aircraft, so . . .

Maybe because it has one seat? 🤦🏽♀️ https://t.co/LEaO44Bhny

As has been pointed out- the F22 is a single-seat aircraft.
The Commander in Chief- the capo di tutti capi of the US Air Force- is unaware of that. How reassuring.
And who is the “they” he keeps mentioning who “won’t let him” do things? https://t.co/YVzATRYKak
