Joe Biden had arguably one of the worst weeks in presidential history.
There may be a few arguments against that, but I doubt anyone can argue the 24 hours that passed from Thursday to Friday were absolutely horrific, revealing at least two major crises.
What was Biden’s response?
Well, he and Jill packed their bags, jumped on Marine One, and headed to the beach for the weekend.
Just a Bad Couple of Hours
Even if we only concentrate on the last few hours of the day, let’s look at just how bad things have gotten for Biden.
Mid-day on Friday, it was announced that the investigation results from the Kabul drone strike were released.
General McKenzie announced that the strike, in fact, was not “righteous,” but rather a complete disaster.
An aid worker and much of his family were obliterated by the strike. A total of 10 civilians dead, including seven children.
About the same time, the news was announced that the FDA was shooting down the call by the Biden administration to recommend booster shots except for those most at risk.
WASHINGTON (AP) — FDA advisory panel soundly rejects a plan to offer Pfizer booster shots against COVID-19 to most Americans.

Then came the final blow.
France is still going nuts about being left out of the Australian nuclear submarine deal.
Numerous French officials have come out to blast Biden for snubbing France, which already had a defense technology deal in place with Australia.
The latest being French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, who called the move by Biden “unacceptable behavior.”
Oh, and let’s not forget the more than 10,000 Haitian refugees stacked up at the Texas border… that is just a bonus prize for Joe’s failing presidency.
Did Joe stay in DC to take the heat? Nope!
Instead, he packed his bags, snagged Jill, and took off for Rehoboth Beach for the weekend to chill out, bringing about even more scrutiny.
I don’t care how you measure it, that is just a bad day.
