A single facetious comment from Joe Biden has drawn ample criticism this week as video and audio from the man in the White House surfaced on Monday evening that showed Biden joking about selling state secrets while meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“I sold a lot of state secrets and a lot of very important things that we shared,” he mumbled, cracking a small smile.
Later, Biden added that he would put “all kidding aside” as he discussed technology and the relationship between India and the United States.
However, social media users weren’t quite as keen on skipping past Biden’s ill-delivered joke.
Joe Biden, his son, Hunter, and several members of his family are currently facing an extensive investigation in the House of Representatives.
Specifically, an ongoing probe from the House Oversight Committee has been investigating Biden’s involvement in an alleged bribery scheme with a foreign national.
As reported by RSBN, recent IRS whistleblower testimony has further alleged that the DOJ and Delaware U.S. Attorney’s Office blocked search warrants and charges related to Hunter Biden’s possible crimes.
Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., stated this week that if the IRS whistleblower testimony was proven true, he was poised to begin an impeachment inquiry into U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland.
McCarthy clarified that impeachment inquiries would begin by July 6.
Biden’s odd comment additionally comes as CNN dropped a “bombshell” audio tape of President Trump discussing paperwork with staffers. Jack Posobiec sarcastically tweeted:
“BREAKING: CNN releases tape of Donald Trump admitting on hot mic to world leaders and journalists in the room ‘I sold a lot of state secrets[.]’
oh wait waitaminute[.]”
Joe Biden’s tone-deaf joke on the world stage has not been received well by most Americans. Former GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake remarked on Twitter, “Joe Biden admitted to actual treason.”
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., added, “Joe Biden’s brain is going and he’s literally admitting his crimes out loud. Impeach Biden! It’s unreal and so insulting to America.”
