WH Tries to Clean Up Biden’s Flub about Russia Invasion as Ukraine ‘Watched Remarks with Horror’

Democrat President Joe Biden finally held a real press conference on Wednesday and revealed to the nation why his staff has been hiding him for a year.

The press conference has been widely panned as a train wreck or, as the New York Post described it, an “utter disaster.”

The White House is now attempting to clean up the mess in the wake of the gaffe-ridden debacle.

Among the many criticisms, Biden made a devasting flub that appeared to give Russian President Vladimir Putin’s impending invasion of Ukraine the greenlight.

Biden was trying to talk tough to deter Russia from invading but let slip that, as long as it is a minor incursion and not a full invasion, the U.S. government would turn a blind eye.

Then Biden admitted NATO allies are divided on what to do if Russia invades a small part of the country or mounts a full invasion.

CNN’s Matthew Chance, who is in Ukraine’s capital Kyiv, reported that Ukrainian officials “watched those remarks with horror.”

Kamala Harris tried to clean up the historic flub saying on NBC:

“On the subject of Ukraine, I will tell you that the president has been very clear, and we as the United States have been very clear, if Putin takes aggressive action, we are prepared to levy serious and severe costs, period.

“We are clear and have been clear for quite some time, that our first approach and priority and preference is that these issues could be resolved diplomatically.

“We have also been clear and continue to be clear, that if Russia takes aggressive action, it will be with severe cost.

“I’m not going to psychoanalyze President Putin of Russia, but I will tell you this — it is clear to us that the decision is probably in his hands, and we are prepared to take appropriate action based on whatever he decides to do,” Harris said.
