Come on Joe, lose the shadows [OPINION]
Joe Biden has embarrassed the United States abroad with his dismal performance at the G7 summit meetings. He is a weak leader, very disconnected from the route prepared for him by his masters. Biden is high above his head, looking lost and confused. There have been several instances where his colleagues openly laughed at him. Not with him – to him.
Not only did Biden put on a show, but he also disrespected the Queen of England by failing to remove his ubiquitous sunglasses while being introduced to her. It’s bad manners for Biden to wear sunglasses while talking to other world leaders, let alone the fucking Queen of England. Come on Joe, show some class.
As Joe Biden marches like Joe Cool, the balance of power in the world is at stake. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping are strong leaders who can sense weakness from miles away. They will eat Biden’s lunch. It’s going to be four long years.
When I was a child, I was taught to respect others. My mom would have knocked the sunglasses off my face and that silly smirk he always wears. Respect is being lost among the masses, but at Biden’s level it still exists and he should practice it.
Joe Biden needs to take his job a little more seriously and himself a little less. Put away the sunglasses, Joe. This is not the Obama White House. You are now on the world stage. Show some respect for yourself, your country and your position.
