Biden Leveled After Declaring 'I'm the Sitting President of the United States'

Share

President Joe Biden was recently given a good piece of advice from a fictional mafia boss.

“Let me say this as clearly as I can,” a Friday post to Biden’s X account said. “I’m the sitting President of the United States.

“I’m the nominee of the Democratic party. I’m staying in the race.”

This bold reply, in direct contrast to Biden’s spaced-out demeanor during the June 27 presidential debate, quickly attracted the president’s usual critics.

Woke watchdog account Libs of TikTok doubted he made the post at all, asking, “Which intern wrote this.”

Conservative cartoonist George Alexopoulos quoted a character from HBO’s “Game of Thrones” in highlighting the futility of screaming “I’m the boss!”

“Any man who must say ‘I am the king’ is no true king,” the post said.

The most brutal reply, which received more than 21,000 reposts and 176,000 “likes,” came from an unlikely source.

The X account for HBO’s “The Sopranos” fired off its own impression of Biden’s post with a quote from chief mafioso Tony Soprano.

“If you gotta keep saying you’re the boss, you’re not the boss,” the TV mobster was quoted as saying in a screen shot from the show.

The “likes” on this post appear to have briefly surpassed that of Biden’s original, prompting the HBO show’s account to announce “we have ratio’d the president.”

When an X post is “ratio’d,” it means one or more replies to it has eclipsed it in views and likes.

Biden’s behavior during the debate had much of the nation wondering whether the sitting president is truly running the show.

The question of the president’s ability to handle his own re-election campaign — and, by extension, the responsibilities of the Oval Office — is also on the mind of his fellow Democrats.

Will Biden be replaced as the Democrats' candidate?

Many of the party’s politicians and donors are speaking out against Biden’s spot at the top of the ticket. Most of these are demanding he step down from his campaign and a replacement candidate be chosen.

While there is not yet a consensus on the future of Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris is being eyed as a top possibility to replace the octogenarian candidate.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 

 

Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 

 

And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 

 

The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.

 

We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.

 

But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 

 

The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 

 

With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 

 

We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.

 

Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning
