President Joe Biden sure did take his sweet time putting together a statement regarding the shocking assassination of former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. But that’s probably because he wanted to make sure that it would be thoughtful and understated while also categorically condemning the murder.

Or maybe he just wanted to find a way to shoehorn gun control into his response:

“Gun violence always leaves a deep scar on the communities that are affected by it.” Yes, Joe, that’s very true.

Except this wasn’t gun violence. And it had nothing to do with gun control or the lack thereof.

God forbid the president be capable of mourning the death of a world leader without trying to use it for political gain. This is truly disgusting.

Joe Biden is first and foremost a Democratic politician. He literally can’t shut it off for two damn seconds.

This was terrorism. Call it what it is, Mr. President. Or are you just too determined to live down to our worst expectations?

“Just the dumbest f**king thing for a president to say” could be Joe Biden’s tagline. It pretty much describes everything that comes out of his decaying mouth.

They do like to stay on-brand.

The entire Biden administration is particularly vulgar. Just an absolute dumpster fire. Shame on all of them.

Maybe next time.
