Vladimir Putin has to be looking at President Joe Biden's disaster of a press conference and thinking, "You know, if it's too good to be true, it's probably too good to be true." Because Biden can't be that freaking senile. Look, the Americans can't be that dumb. We have Grindr. We have Taylor Swift, Obamacare. There's a lot of dumb stuff out there. But we cannot be that dumb, right? We could not really have chosen to elect a manifestly senile invertebrae, a crustacean, if you were. Putin has to be thinking, "Are they suckering me in? Is he secretly competent?" If I were Putin, I'd be looking at this like, "Huh, I'm invading Ukraine." So what do I think we ought to do? We ought to not do what Biden did, which is essentially invite Putin in, "Well, just a little incursion isn't going to be a problem."
