There is a reason Biden’s handlers so rarely let him speak before the press. Most of the time, events are heavily controlled, with Biden forced to read off a teleprompter. Even those events don’t always go as planned and Americans are treated to moments where Biden struggles to even read a script.
Yesterday, the embattled “president” failed to convince Democrats to kill the filibuster. Moments later, he appeared before the press to discuss the issue. It seemed he was working off comments given to him by his people. But when he started to go “off script,” he seemed to lose it.
Biden, appearing to admit defeat on ending the filibuster & nationalizing elections, randomly starts shouting: States’ voter reform laws are “about who gets to count the votes! Count the vote! Count the vote!”

Wow, did I just hear what I thought I heard? Biden appeared angry and flustered over his failure to get Democrats to kill the filibuster and pass these radical election bills. After stammering a bit, he claimed the real issue wasn’t about getting people to vote, but—bear with me now—about “who gets to count the votes.”
Then he shouted several times, “Count the vote!”
Um… wow, talk about audacity. Wasn’t that very issue millions of conservatives complained about during the 2020 Election? Is Biden really saying he’s worried about how Republicans count the vote in red states?
Do we need to go down memory lane and revisit the many “irregularities” that tainted the 2020 Election count? How many Americans still feel upset about that election, over concerns about who was counting the vote? Is Biden really saying now we have to worry about that—and in conservative states?
This man really has some gall. Or he’s so out of his mind, he doesn’t even know what he’s saying anymore. His outburst of “count the vote” was odd and troubling. We’re used to seeing Biden sound tired, confused, and out of sorts before the press. But these sudden bursts of anger only add fuel to the worries that he is not well.
Why was he shouting? Why was he repeating that one phrase? What is really going on with him? Democrats better fess up now.
- Joe Biden had a meltdown before the press after failing to kill the filibuster.
- He claimed his “voting rights” bills are about “who gets to count the vote.”
- He proceeded to shout “Count the vote” several times, in an odd outburst.
