Joe Biden may be headed for the beach, but don’t expect it to be a vacation from his problems. When the president got on the plane last week, the White House was frantically trying to clean up another mess of Biden’s making — this time on the southern border. In Del Rio, Texas, where more than 10,000 migrants are wading in the water on the U.S.-Mexico border, the president’s team can’t stop the flood of shocking images. It’s just one more snapshot in his photo album of failures.
The White House tried to bury the evidence, ordering the FAA to ground all drones around the bridge so that news outlets can’t capture video of the chaos. “It’s a two-week [flight restriction],” Fox News’s Bill Melugin explained, “for ‘special security reasons.'” The timing, the location, it’s all a little too coincidental, he agreed. “Fox News has been at the border for the better part of seven months now. We’ve been using the drone the entire time. It’s never been an issue. All of a sudden, the last 24 hours, we start showing these images at this bridge and a TFR goes up. We can no longer fly.”
But covering up the humanitarian crisis at the border will be impossible — even for these masters of distraction. The White House’s “nothing to see here” messaging hasn’t worked on the horrors of Afghanistan, and it’s not likely to reassure anyone on North Korea’s missile launch either. Then, of course, there’s the other baggage the administration is trying to ignore. “The inflation that was supposed to be short-lived continues to drag on,” Jim Geraghty points out. ” … The pandemic that Biden pledged to shut down has killed more than 25,000 Americans so far this month… [and] the administration’s pledge to ‘follow the science’ has been dependent on the political convenience of what the science is indicating… As autumn arrives, they look naïve, unprepared, slow-footed, and in over their heads.”
