Things keep getting worse for Joe Biden.
He tried to slow the bleeding.
And Biden’s handlers shook their head over what ole Joe uttered now about reparations for illegal aliens.
After Democrats took a beating on Tuesday in the Virginia and New Jersey elections, Joe Biden held a press conference where he demanded parents vaccinate their children against the coronavirus.
Because Democrats were so concerned with the narrative of voters rejecting their socialist agenda the day before, Biden’s handlers actually allowed him to take questions from the press.
Fox News Channel White House Correspondent Peter Doocy used the opportunity to ask Biden about a Wall Street Journal report claiming the Biden administration is setting up a one billion dollar slush fund to pay families of illegal aliens one million dollars each as part of a lawsuit.
Doocy drilled Biden on whether or not the massive payout would only incentivize even more illegal immigrants to sneak across the border.
“About the way, forward, Mr. President,” Doocy began, “as you were leaving for your overseas trip, there were reports that that were surfacing that your administration is planning to pay illegal immigrants who were separated from their parents at the border up to $450,000 each, possibly a million dollars per family. Do you think that might incentivize more people to come over illegally?”
Biden responded to Doocy by accusing him of spreading misinformation and “garbage.”
“If you guys keep sending that garbage out, yeah,” Biden responded. “But it’s not true.”
Doocy then asked Biden if he believed the Journal’s story was “garbage.”
“Yeah,” Biden fired back.
Biden walking back his previous support for reparations for illegal immigrants is a sign that Democrats are trying to recalibrate before next year’s midterm elections.
Biden knows that the majority of Americans are concerned about the border crisis, so he’s distancing himself from what is certain to be a wildly unpopular handout to illegal aliens.
The election results in Virginia and New Jersey showed Democrats how much anger there is from Americans over Joe Biden’s radical agenda.
Polls show the border crisis is a top issue among voters.
And Joe Biden is trying to play damage control for Democrats.
