President Joe Biden is out of town again as debt ceiling talks enter their final days.
Biden returned from a trip to Japan last Sunday and spent just four full days in Washington before departing for Camp David on Friday afternoon. He'll also spend part of this weekend in Delaware as the debt ceiling "X-date" approaches.
The president will be wherever he needs to be to secure a reasonable, bipartisan deal to prevent the economic catastrophe that Republicans are threatening, this manufactured crisis," White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said when asked about Biden's travel plans. "He'll do that wherever he needs to be."
The White House has been criticized for Biden's high number of vacation days before and often responds by saying that Biden is the president and can fill the duties of the office from anywhere. But the debt ceiling could be reached as soon as Thursday, and the Biden administration has been calling the problem a crisis for weeks.
"On the debt ceiling, you used words like 'catastrophic' and 'devastating' today," a reporter said in Wednesday's press briefing. "But the president, again, is going to Camp David this weekend and then going to Delaware. If this situation is so dire, then why is the presidentó"
Jean-Pierre cut off the inquiry, saying, "I already answered that question."
So, she's a stupid black lesbian and he's a demented ne'er do well. Baha baha.
That whole White House team is an, as po'd say, EFFIN joke! Baha baha baha.
