Joe Biden is about to hit the road when the funeral arrangements for Queen Elizabeth II are announced.
This has infuriated some conservatives, and for very good reason.
Biden has no problem traveling over the pond for a photo op, but he cannot travel to the southern border for a domestic crisis or even attend a single funeral for a police officer shot and killed in the line of duty.
When Biden was asked about attending the funeral services, he stated, “Yes. I don’t know what the details are yet, but I’ll be going.”
I suspect he will also have Jill and possibly Hunter in tow.
He was also asked if he had reached out to newly crowned King Charles III to express his condolences.
Biden responded, “I know him. I haven’t spoken to him. I did not call him.”
Biden had also released a statement after the Queen’s death, stating, “She was a great lady.
“We’re so delighted we got to meet her.”
He added, “Queen Elizabeth II was more than a monarch. She defined an era.”
I am more concerned that Biden will be spending millions to attend what amounts to be a photo op when he still has not visited the border to see firsthand what is going on.
Or, better yet, instead of going to England for the pomp and circumstance of a Royal funeral, how about attending the funeral of a few of our killed in the line of duty police officers?
What about the funerals of the troops killed in Afghanistan due to his botched withdrawal?
Instead, it appears that Biden is hoping to be able to claim that he is the first sitting Oval Office occupant to attend a British state funeral.
That may sound odd, but the fact of the matter is that with Queen Elizabeth II having reigned for 70 years, the relationship with the crown prior to this was not exactly all strawberries and whipped cream.
Realize she has been wearing the crown for roughly 40 percent of our country’s existence.
