President Joe Biden finally took a few hours out of his busy vacation schedule this week to visit Maui, the Hawaiian island ravaged by deadly wildfires. It did not go well.
The 80-year-old commander in chief compared the plight of Maui residents to the time his 1967 Corvette was almost damaged in a 2004 house fire that authorities described as “insignificant.” He thanked local leaders for their leadership “during this unimaginable travedy [sic]” and mumbled something about roots. He also had an engaging conversation with a dog before resting his eyes (so to speak) during a memorial service for wildfire victims.
Days before his Maui visit, Biden met with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida of Japan and incorrectly identified him as the “president” of the former Axis power. He spoke incoherently at a joint press conference, vowing to “get the head of the issues as we they appear with the experience that we’ve experienced during the pandemic,” and nearly suffered another fall after forgetting to remove his translation earpiece before wandering away from the podium.
Have a great weekend!
