Joe Biden must have had a hell of a first day back in the office after a week of vacationing.
He spent the entire week in Ireland, then flew to his beach home to relax from his vacation for the remainder of the weekend.
But, what do you know… instead of actually going back to work on Monday, Joe showed up, had a cup of coffee, then the White House called a lid at 9:00 a.m.
We Are Done
As I stated yesterday, when Joe has a long week, the man needs time to recover.
This is a pattern that we have seen over and over during his time in office.
We assumed that is what the weekend at the beach would have been because Joe had to be exhausted from touring all those castles in Ireland.
My guess here is that when Joe got back to the White House on Monday, he had that glassy stare, was mumbling, probably told someone "Don't jump," so the they figured it was best to call it a day…

The announcement did not go unnoticed by the right side of the aisle…

The last interaction Biden had with the media was as he was leaving Ireland when he was asked about running for president in 2024.
Biden was clearly agitated by the question, and responded, "I've already made that calculus. We'll announce it relatively soon. But the trip here just reinforced my sense of optimism about what can be done," reports Fox News.
The next reporter asked him a hang-from-the-edge-of-your-seat question about Biden's lineage, which is what he really wanted to talk about and nobody really wanted to hear about.
Meanwhile, Republicans dropped a report that they can now trace money from Hunter's business dealings to six different Biden family members, but the media refused to ask him about it.
You know… you don't want to risk upsetting Joe!
