LIVE: Biden To Address Nation On Tropical Storm Henri (Oh, and Afghanistan, too)

LIVE: Biden To Address Nation On Tropical Storm Henri (Oh, and Afghanistan, too)

“President Biden Provides an Update on his Administration’s Response to Hurricane Henri, as well as an Update on the Evacuation of American Citizens, SIV Applicants and Their Families, and Vulnerable Afghans.”

According to the White House, Joe Biden will be addressing the nation at 4:00 p.m. EST.

Yesterday, reports were circulating that Biden would address the nation Sunday on the Afghanistan situation, specifically the evacuation efforts amid the Biden-caused calamity.

Today, the White House is portraying Biden’s address to the nation as being primarily about “Hurricane” Henri, which hit Rhode Island as a tropical storm, with some comments on the Afghanistan evacuation.

On the off chance Biden actually addresses the Afghanistan debacle, we are running a “live” post.

Note the White House title of this livestream: “President Biden Provides an Update on his Administration’s Response to Hurricane Henri.” And the description: “President Biden Provides an Update on his Administration’s Response to Hurricane Henri, as well as an Update on the Evacuation of American Citizens, SIV Applicants and Their Families, and Vulnerable Afghans.”

We will be updating this post, so stay tuned.

Ice cream afterwards!

Is he going to pronounce it “on-ree” like the broadcast I heard today, or Henry like Americans would? Place your bets!

Or- will he screw it up completely?

If I had to choose between watching Joe Biden and Spongebob Squarepants I would elect to watch the latter. Spongebob is much more believable and realistic than the bewildered and confused Joe Biden.

Biden: Time to move on.

British Parliament found him contemptible. So do I.

5000 people watching, 1.6K dislikes vs 345 likes at this moment. Last night’s Trump rally had five times as many people in the audience, and hundreds of thousands watching.

Tell me this barely-functioning potato is popular.

Why on earth does he need to address a mere Tropical Storm? Somebody is reaching for a distraction or something.

The admin is finally getting organized to receive, conduct initial screening, transport to 3rd nation, conduct secondary screening, transport to the US; twelve days into this mess. Better late than never but damn.

For there to still be such a wide range in estimates of US Citizens present in Afghanistan is a problem. We apparently have little idea when the primary mission of returning US Citizens will be completed. This, in effect, allows the administration the freedom to decide when they are done irrespective of the numbers airlifted out.

“Biden: US will welcome Afghan allies ‘once screened and cleared'”

Rigorous!

    They should just enter the US by crossing the southern border where no screening and clearing is necessary and save all the paperwork.

SpongeBob for president! Outside the improvement, no one would notice.

Henri is a dud, scarcely worthy of presidential attention.

    Biden sees a dud as a reflection of himseld.

    It was a dud.
    But national media – and even local media – played it like the world was ending.

    This morning there was no wind or rain in NYC – the eye was 160 miles away making landfall in Rhode Island, Yet the local media was still telling everyone to stay home – inside – for safety. My building circulated an Emergency Bulletin. Wait – What ? I lived there for 25 years and never got any such thing.

    What is up with this ? What is going on with the media.

    On a separate note – Everytime I go to you tune they give WWII-Nazi history as suggested video. Does this happen to anyone else? Do they serve this stuff to anyone who checks conservative content. It feels like a set up. Maybe someday they get you in court and say – “your honor his search history shows he has an interest in Nazi videos.”

I live up here in MA. It was a nothing burger near Boston. I suspect the area around Springfield got a fair amount of rain all the way out to Albany. It was only a tropical storm when it came ashore, Of course, you do not play around we any of these things, but it is hardly the thing of an address by the present dunce.

    This was my sense, too, and the way the address went, it’s clear the “response” to a few states getting rained on was added in as an afterthought in an attempt to make Biden look remotely competent. It didn’t work.

      He did act like a confident rodent snarling in a corner… trapped and with no way out but bluff. As for the upcoming G7 meeting, the USA under Biden has no more negotiating power. Stiffing our allies is the historically correct thing to do? How much of this is now pure Biden I am not certain but with Harris as a spare they may have cut him loose to fulfill BHO and OBL’s assessment of him. Unbridled … this can be really really bad. As for the dolts with stars on their shoulders…. busting down to private or just stripped of everything is about time.

    Coastal Connecticut here. Some rain, but no damaging winds. Only 2% currently without power, not the crazy number Eversource warned might be without power for 8-21 days!

      All part of the panic the American public seems to thrive on. Cranberries causing cancer, the swine flu “pandemic”, believing a totally hokey-sounding radio play and some even going as far as suicide, Covid…

      I’m so happy I live in a coastal CT town with a town electric company. We didn’t even have a blip once yet today. (Crosses fingers, knocks on wood.) We were the last bit of town to get power back during Irene and it was still only 36 – the half of town Neversource services was out another 5+ days. Given how badly Eastern Connecticut has fared with those idiots over the years, I’m guessing Neversource were working to lower expectations so that if they only took a week to get all of the state back up, people would be happy.

Somebody get this festering boil off the stage. Permanently.

Resign or Impeach!!!

Arrest Jill for elder abuse.
Fire Sullivan and Blinken for gross incompetence.
What a friggen FUBAR !

This dodo makes Carter look good.

No one is questioning the idea…it was actually Trump’s admin that came up with it and Biden is trying to take credit for it.

We are upset with the absolutely farcical execution of the idea by a corrupt administration that has no checks and balances…not even a press that can hold them to account.

This morning CNN has Adam Klinginzer on saying how Trump caused this and basically tied Biden’s hands to the pull out from Afghanistan.

Just watch – the deflection and misdirection propaganda will be in full force this week.
