Biden Needs Muzzle To Stop Reckless, Inflammatory Personal Attacks

Job 1 for any president is not to spew personal insults at world leaders to inflame delicate issues of war and peace.

At a campaign stop Wednesday, Biden called Russian President Vladimir Putin a “crazy SOB” (Son of a Bitch). Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was much more circumspect in pushing back, saying, “Such boorish statements from the mouth of a US leader are hardly capable of hurting the head of another country in any way, much less President Putin. But it is a great shame for the country (US) itself,”

Biden knows better. He made that scurrilous remark to ramp up support for his reelection with voters who have largely abandoned him on his lost proxy war against Russia destroying Ukraine, and his enabling Israel’s genocidal ethnic cleansing of Gaza.

Biden’s senseless attack is business as usual for a ‘shoot from the hip’ president. In 2021 he called Putin a “killer” somehow forgetting that with the thousands of bombs he’s dropped in the Middle East and Africa…nobody kills like Biden. Recently Biden proclaimed, without an iota of proof, that “Putin and his thugs” were responsible for right wing Russian nationalist and Putin opponent Alexei Navalny’s death. But Kyrylo Budanov, leader of Ukraine’s CIA backed GUR military intelligence service, believes that Navalny’s death was simply the result of natural causes, not an assassination at all. Don’t expect any retraction from Quick Draw Joe.

Biden also called his other great imagined enemy, Chinese President Xi Jinping, a “dictator” right after meeting with him to improve US China relations. When it comes to insulting world leaders, Biden just can’t keep his trap shut.

In calling Putin a “crazy SOB”, Biden hinted that Putin “and others” have him “worried about nuclear conflict.” Between extending the US proxy war with Russia for 2 years now, enabling genocide in Gaza and using public attacks totally unworthy of any president, it’s Joe Biden, not Putin and others that have the US electorate worried about nuclear war.

Don’t muzzle the presidential dog… muzzle his owner.

  1. What Biden said about Putin and Xi describes Biden and not them. Biden doesn’t have the guts to call Netanyahu an SOB. Biden kills more people than Putin and Xi combined. Biden authorized wars when he was a Senator and was Ehud Barack Obama’s VP and authorized wars and drone strikes. Now, he has caused the war in Ukraine and is enabling Israel’s war and genocide of Gaza.

  2. Don’t muzzle the presidential dog… muzzle his owner.

    Good article. That last sentence says it all.
