(PresidentialWire.com)- Last week President Biden seemed to indicate that he was ready and willing to go to Ukraine.
In recent weeks, European leaders, including UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, have traveled to Kyiv to meet with President Volodymyr Zelensky and tour the war-torn capital. However, the White House has repeatedly dismissed the notion of sending the 79-year-old Biden to Ukraine.
But during a press scrum before boarding Air Force One on his way to Greensboro, North Carolina last Thursday, the president was asked by a reporter if he would be sending a senior official to Ukraine.
The president, who was having trouble hearing the reporter, said the White House was “making that decision now.”
The reporter followed up, asking the president whom he would be sending, prompting Biden to sarcastically ask the reporter if she was ready to go.
The reporter turned the question on Biden, asking “Are you?” The old dope told him, “Yeah” before boarding Air Force One.

During CNN’s “State of the Union” on Sunday, President Zelensky was asked by Jake Tapper if there were any plans to have Biden visit Ukraine. Zelensky suggested that he thought Biden will come, but the decision would be Biden’s.
But on Monday, press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters that there is no plan to have the president travel to Ukraine.
You can understand why the news media is pressuring Joe Biden to travel to Ukraine. The American corporate news media, whose job is to protect Biden, can’t stand the fact that other world leaders are making their guy look bad by stepping up and doing something the so-called “leader of the free world” is unable to do.
