G7 Is More A G6.5 With The Cognitively Challenged Biden In Attendance

The Group of Seven Summit begins Friday with the leaders of the U.S., Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Italy and Canada meeting in Great Britain through Sunday. One of those leaders, however, is not like the others. Which puts America at a disadvantage.

If readers think we’re saying that President Joe Biden is not all there, then we plead guilty. Clearly he’s not. His flubs, stumbles (both verbal and physical), empty gaze, the where-am-I pauses when he speaks in public (even with the aid of a teleprompter he has trouble following), the mangling of sentences, and his inability to recall the names of the Declaration of Independence and Defense Department are signs of a man deeply in decline. He shouldn’t be allowed to run a sidewalk hot dog cart on Pennsylvania Avenue, much less be the primary occupant of that street’s most famous and important building.

Yet there he is, in Cornwall, ostensibly representing and aggressively promoting America. (Of course even in his best days of yesteryear, expecting Biden to do what’s right for his country was expecting too much.)

And much is missing. Here’s what some observers abroad have recently said about him:

  • An unnamed conservative Brexiteer said “America should remember who their allies are,” then added that, “unfortunately” Biden is “so senile that he probably won’t remember what we tell him anyway. Unless an aide is listening I’m not sure he’s going to remember for very long.”

“This is elder abuse; the man should go. But what is just as bad is all we get from a new Biden administration, brainwashed by the left; they can’t trot out anything to him and he will say what he likes. It is just woke nonsense.

“We can’t be serious that this is the leader of the Western world.”

  • Hours after Biden arrived in Britain on Wednesday, he delivered a speech to military personnel. Yet despite being told by First Lady Jill Biden to “pay attention,” he yammered about “those RFA pilots.” “Embarrassingly, Mr. Biden managed to turn the RAF into the RFA, when referencing the UK’s military air force,” the Daily Express reported.
  • Biden continues to slog through a series of hiccups, blunders, confused calendar citations, “creepy” comments, and botched mentions of the job titles of other nations’ leaders, according to the Sun.

This is the man America elected to act on the country’s behalf in international affairs. To stand up to thug nations, to nurture relationships with allies, to be the custodian of the economic interests of the U.S. Yet what the public gets is a tweeted photo of the unelected Jill Biden “prepping for the G7.”

This doesn’t inspire confidence. In fact, it does just the opposite.

  • Ironically there is an RFA: the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, the supply and sealift helpmates of the RN. Not so many pilots, except when steaming out of harbor ;o)

    Also if you’ve spent much time listening to Justin, you’d probsbly cut that “G6.5” down a bit further.

  • We can only pray biden is not allowed to meet one-on-one with Putin. There is no telling what biden will say or do. The country is at stake all because so many fools hated President Trump so much, they would vote for anybody. Well, we got that anybody and it’s not looking very good.
