President Joe Biden charts the outer limits of comprehension so frequently that, even when we hear him clearly, it’s still difficult to believe what’s coming out of his mouth.
So when we don’t hear him clearly, just about anything is possible. Nowhere was that more apparent than in an incident Sunday, where the president emitted a burst of gibberish that sounded to many viewers of the video like: “My butt’s been wiped.”
Classy, I know. It sounds like something from an episode of “Beavis and Butthead.” And yet, that’s what people are taking away from a strange clip on Sunday.
“Does immigration need to be in reconciliation? A pathway for citizenship?” a reporter asked as Biden returned to the White House from the weekend in Wilmington, Delaware.
“There needs to be a pathway to citizenship. Whether it needs to be in immigration remains to be seen,” Biden answered.
Right. Aside from the fact that Biden said “immigration” when he apparently meant to say “reconciliation,” it’s what he said before then that drew a lot of interest.
Granted, the helicopter engines seemed pretty loud, but it was difficult for many to hear anything other than, “My butt’s been wiped,” followed by laughter.
