Joe Biden is in hot water after this disgraceful slip of the tongue

The White House can’t cover this up. The president’s been caught with nowhere to turn.

Now Joe Biden is in hot water after this truly disgraceful slip of the tongue.

One of the rules of foreign policy is that you can’t trust intel that comes from the enemy’s camp without any prior verification that the intel in question is valid and true. That’s apparently something Joe Biden doesn’t understand whatsoever.

The evidence of this lies in the fact that Joe Biden apparently trusts what radical Muslim terrorists have to say about what’s going on in the Middle East right now. That couldn’t possibly be biased propaganda, could it Joe Biden?

Even though he has stated that Hamas-provided statistics on Gaza casualties are untrustworthy, President Joe Biden seemed to cite them recently when providing new statements on the Biden administration’s current stance regarding the ongoing Middle Eastern conflict.

In his remarks recognizing the occasion of Ramadan, a Muslim holy period, Biden asserted that more than 30,000 Palestinians have perished in the maelstrom of the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. According to the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, Biden seemed to be quoting the estimate from the Gaza Health Ministry, which is managed by Hamas and has itself given misleading information about the conflict.

“The sacred month is a time for reflection and renewal. This year, it comes at a moment of immense pain,” President Biden said this past weekend. “The war in Gaza has inflicted terrible suffering on the Palestinian people. More than 30,000 Palestinians have been killed, most of them civilians, including thousands of children.”

Since the Israel-Hamas conflict began in October, more than 30,000 Palestinians have died, according to a report released by the Gaza Health Ministry in late February. According to NPR, the ministry says it uses a combination of public and hospital statistics to arrive at this figure.

Although Hamas took over in 2007 and currently controls almost everything in the region, notably the health ministry, the Palestinian Authority is officially the government of Gaza. The health ministry has given misleading or outright fraudulent information on multiple occasions. For example, it has wrongly claimed that an Israeli attack in October destroyed a hospital in Gaza.

The world community has expressed doubt towards the casualty estimates presented by the Gaza Health Ministry, as they have not been objectively validated. The estimates also do not distinguish between Hamas terrorist casualties and civilian casualties.

Biden has said in the past that he didn’t believe the casualty estimates that were given.

During statements in October, Biden stated, “I have no notion that the Palestinians are telling the truth about how many people are killed. I think we should be incredibly careful. I think… the Israelis should be incredibly careful to be sure that they’re focusing on going after the folks that are propagating this war against Israel. And it’s against their interest when that doesn’t happen.”

But Biden added he doesn’t “trust the number the Palestinians are using.”

Disagreements about how to wage the war have caused Biden’s relationship with the Israeli government and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to grow more difficult. Though Hamas remains a threat, Biden is pressuring Netanyahu to reduce military action and bring the battle to an immediate end.

The Biden regime declared last week that it would use a marine route in the Mediterranean Sea to send more humanitarian goods to Gaza. All of this paid for by the U.S. taxpayer, of course.

The supplies would effectively be floated over to the shoreline, meaning that American Marines won’t be on the ground in Gaza. However, the Pentagon said on Friday that there is “certainly a risk” that Hamas could fire on American personnel on adjacent navy vessels carrying out the operation.

Critics of Joe Biden quickly took to the airwaves and the internet to point out that his blind trust of these numbers provided by Hamas is disturbing and a contradiction of what the White House has previously alleged.

The continued flip-flopping on this issue is not doing Joe Biden and company any favors. Polls indicate that his own voting base is increasingly upset with him regarding the Middle Eastern conflict despite his attempts to seem more and more “progressive” on this issue than he was immediately after Hamas terrorists brutally attacked Israel back on October 7th.
