Biden Makes Mega-Gaffe Over Migrant Payoffs

While Biden is well-known for making various gaffes at inopportune times, he recently outdid himself with a mega-gaffe.

Even better, his mega-gaffe managed to enrage the ACLU, an organization that appears fixated on the undermining of America.

Just consider his most recent exchange with Fox News reporter Peter Doocy.

Doocy went straight for the jugular of one of the most controversial issues plaguing the United States at this point in time: paying upwards of $450,000 per migrant for all the supposed psychological strain they’ve endured as a result of being separated at the border.

Never mind that such strain would have never emerged in the first place had individuals not attempted entering the United States illegally, but Democrats never pay attention to such silly “root causes” as that.

However, it appears that the Democrats haven’t done the greatest job keeping Biden up-to-date on their most absurd plans yet, which was painfully obvious during a recent exchange with Doocy.

“As you were leaving for your overseas trip, there were reports that were surfacing that your administration’s planning to pay illegal immigrants who were separated from their families at the border up to $450,000 each, possibly $1 million per family … Do you think that that might incentivize more people to come over illegally?” [Source: The Blaze]

Apparently, Biden had not contemplated whether or not such high payments would incentivize individuals to cross the border illegally, given that he seemed totally unaware about pending $450,000 (!) payments to illegal migrants in the first place.

In fact, Biden went as far as to say that his own party’s plan was “garbage” … directly to Doocy.

“If you guys keep sending that garbage out, yeah … But it’s not true.” [Source: The Blaze]

In other words, Biden thought that Doocy was merely making up “fake news,” never mind the fact that the “news” came directly from the Democrats themselves.

Biden appeared totally dumbfounded by the proposed payments, insisting that such payments were not going to happen.

Unfortunately for American taxpayers, it appears that Anthony Romero, the ACLU Director, has other ideas, which was rather clear in his crisp retort to Biden’s denial of massive payments to illegal migrants.

“President Biden may not have been fully briefed about the actions of his very own Justice Department as it carefully deliberated and considered the crimes committed against thousands of families separated from their children as an intentional governmental policy. But if he follows through on what he said, the president is abandoning a core campaign promise to do justice for the thousands of separated families …

We respectfully remind President Biden that he called these actions “criminal” in a debate with then-President Trump, and campaigned on remedying and rectifying the lawlessness of the Trump administration. We call on President Biden to right the wrongs of this national tragedy.” [Source: The Blaze]

“May not have been fully briefed.” Ya think?

Just the same way in which Biden was not “fully briefed” on foreign policy that subsequently enraged France, which John Kerry helpfully revealed.

“[Biden] asked me. He said, ‘What’s the situation?’ And I explained- he had not been aware of that. He literally had not been aware of what had transpired.” [Source: Fox News]

So, according to John Kerry, Biden is “literally” not aware of “what had transpired” to enrage France, namely the fact that Australia opted to work with the United States for a major submarine deal over France.

Good to know that the Commander in Chief of the Military is unaware of major actions taken directly by the military, especially those that enrage allies!

No wonder former Vice President Mike Pence referred to Biden’s planned payments to illegal migrants as “incomprehensibly stupid,” a phrase that could adequately describe most of the administration’s policies.

“Of course, their whole policy at the southern border has been a disaster from day one … By implementing what is known as the remain-in-Mexico policy, we reduced illegal immigration by 90%. President Biden rescinded that policy on day one.”[Source: Newsmax]

Well, if a policy is guaranteed to help America, the Biden administration will torpedo it.

If it’s a policy designed to hurt America … then, as far as the Biden administration is concerned, full steam ahead!
