Fox News host Jesse Watters said Saturday that President Joe Biden’s luck has run out amid several national crises that are spiraling out of control.
On his self-titled Fox show, Watters gave a rundown of what he called luck in Biden’s political career. “Biden’s always been a lucky guy his whole political life. He won his Senate seat because a union strike just happened to knock out his opponent’s mailings during the final week,” Watters recalled. “Then, Obama plucked him out of a useless heap of senators to become VP.”
The ultimate stroke of luck for Biden, Watters said, was that he happened to run for president in the middle of a pandemic, which allowed him to hide his failing mental capacity from voters long enough to get elected.
“The 2020 Dem field was so weak, all he had to do to win the nomination was not be a crazy socialist,” Watters said, according to Fox. “Trump was positioned to smoke him before COVID hit. The virus scrambled the race, and gave frail Joe the perfect opportunity to hide before Election Day, and claim he was just following the science. Then, the liberal media blocked out the Republican October surprise, Hunter’s laptop — Biden’s China connections totally ignored.”
Biden’s lost control
But at some point, Watters said, “Joe’s luck ran out. Never being an executive his entire life, Joe froze. He couldn’t handle the pressure. Everything around him began cracking, and he’s officially lost control of the country, and even his own agenda.”
To illustrate his point, Watters pointed to the Build Back Better Act, which Biden has been trying to get passed since April. After a last-minute push last week to get a Senate vote, the bill finally died when Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) said he was a “no” because he feared it would make inflation worse.
“It probably won’t be coming back,” Watters predicted. Take a look:
Voters blaming Biden
Later in the segment, Watters cited a new Fox Business poll, which showed that only 17% of those surveyed claimed to be better off than they were at this time last year.
“Inflation’s ravaging the nation, costing the average family an extra $3,500 this year,” the Fox host noted.
In the same poll, 66% of voters blamed Biden’s leadership directly for the inflation they are experiencing.
Certainly, Biden’s spending and desire to spend trillions more on a radical-left agenda is making inflation much worse. Voters are right to call him on it, but what anyone can actually do about it until after the midterms is another question entirely.
