Biden Insults Millions With A Terrible St. Patrick’s Day Joke – The President Says, “I May Be Irish But I’m Not Stupid”

admin

President Joe Biden has made audiences cringe before. Unfortunately for his administration, it seems to be an ongoing hallmark of his press conferences and public appearances.

Sometimes it’s just amusing and other times, he intentionally makes a joke. But there are times when POTUS slips up and says exactly the wrong thing, which in turn spreads like wildfire.

St. Patrick’s Day is upon us once again, and those who celebrate “the luck of the Irish” are ready for corned beef and cabbage, a bevy of traditional Irish puns, and a pint or two of Guinness.

The President has Irish blood  as well, so he was expected to make some remark about the holiday this week. Of course, people were expecting something light and complimentary.

But that isn’t quite what we got.

Instead, Biden somehow managed to insult the entire country of Ireland with his “joke,” which many quickly said was in poor taste (even if it was a faux pas).

He’s not likely to live this one down any time soon, and the Irish are already pouncing: this isn’t something you want the leader of the free world to say, especially to an audience.

From Breitbart:

President Joe Biden celebrated St. Patrick’s Day on Thursday, joking about his Irish heritage during a speech on Capitol Hill.

‘Father, before I begin — bless me, Father, for I’m about to sin,” he said as he began his speech by crossing himself and addressing the priest in the room. ‘I, well, I just want you to know, I may be Irish, but I’m not stupid.’

Oops.

The President was at the annual Friends of Ireland Luncheon, hosted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, so this gaffe is even more cringe-worthy. With so many Irish people around, that joke was a big mistake.

Biden started off decently enough: he expressed hope that Democrats and Republicans would work together more often in the future, which was met with some applause.

Then he started to get into his Irish heritage, and common sayings from his family. For example:

My grandfather, Ambrose Finnegan, used to say — and I mean this — he’d say, ‘Joey, if you’re lucky enough to be Irish, you’re lucky enough.’

‘My dad’s expression was, ‘Family is the beginning, the middle, and the end,’ he added afterward.

He also quoted his father as saying, “No one is better than you, and you’re no better than anyone else. Not a joke.” This was in reference to the administration’s push for equality and inclusion.

But it sort of came apart at the seams when the President referred to his decision to marry his wife, Jill.

That’s when he made the joke that made everyone wince. It isn’t the first time Biden has made a particularly ill-timed or tactless joke, though many will argue he always does it accidentally.

Either way, it’s not a good look when the President insults millions of people from a friendly country.

This is one of the many reasons why so many Americans don’t believe Biden is 100% competent. The number of gaffes and mistakes makes it difficult to believe that he’s not impaired at all.

And with war in Europe again, these doubts make people a little nervous. Perhaps rightfully so.
