When members of your own party – and your own administration – begin throwing you under the bus, then you know there’s a problem.
Since day one, everyone’s known Joe Biden is in a state of rapid cognitive decline. Major questions were raised as to who exactly was running his administration since it was increasingly apparent Sleepy Joe was not fit for the job. Republicans have voiced their concern, even asking Secretary of State Anthony Blinken who presses the button on Biden when he begins nonsensically rambling during public appearances.
Meanwhile, John Kerry, Biden’s so-called ‘climate czar’ totally threw his boss under this bus this week when he admitted Joe “literally” did not know about a recent foreign conflict with one of our greatest allies – France.
Kerry told a French news organization that Biden “literally had not been aware of what had transpired,” in regards to a conflict that arose late last month between the U.S. and France. Tensions rose after Australia had dumped a multi-billion dollar contract with France for submarines, then made a deal with the U.S. and the U.K. instead.
John Kerry admits in interview with French TV that Joe Biden had no idea about the fallout with the French from the AUKUS sub deal.

The move by the U.S., Australia, and the U.K. caused France to cancel a gala in the U.S. and to recall its ambassadors to the U.S. and Australia. French leaders described the incident as a betrayal and said that they had been lied to by the Biden administration.
Republicans are rightfully voicing their concerns, asking why the President of the United States is “literally” unaware of major geopolitical shifts and breakdowns with top allies.
Marshall S. Billingslea, former Assistant Secretary for Terrorist Financing at the United States Department of the Treasury:
How on earth was the President unaware? The French made a row over the submarine deal, even going so far as to recall their Ambassador. https://t.co/sr7psgJ5Rb

Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL):
Since assuming office, Joe Biden has been an absent president.
But for a President not to be made aware of a technology transfer of this severity and the fallout with a longstanding ally is not only alarming, but raises valid concerns:
What else is POTUS in the dark on? https://t.co/7PGWFisUr6

Victoria Coates, former senior U.S. official:
I really did think the one thing we could trust this administration to do was to competently manage the alliance with France. https://t.co/CvLnuqG0mf

Matt Whitlock, Republican strategist:
WOW — Kerry sort of throwing Blinken and the entire administration foreign policy arm under the bus here and making Biden look completely disengaged. https://t.co/WX47CyrLnT

This admission from Kerry begs the question: What else doesn’t Biden know?
It also furthers many concerns on the Right that wonder who is actually calling the shots in Biden’s White House. While Sleepy Joe is relaxing in his Delaware basement, who is making the decisions that directly affect the American people?
