President Joe Biden claimed on Tuesday that he and his administration were doing “everything” they could to stem the flow of fentanyl into and throughout the United States, but critics did not appear to be buying it.

Biden’s comments came just days after his meeting in San Francisco with Chinese leader Xi Jinping — during which Biden said the two had come to a consensus about stopping the fentanyl that has been coming into the United States from China.

“Deaths from fentanyl are an American tragedy that requires global action. I’m committed to doing everything I can to control this crisis – from expanding prevention, harm reduction, treatment, and recovery, to working with Chinese, Mexican, and Canadian partners to tackle this,” he said in a post to X.

Comedian and vocal Biden critic Roseanne Barr said in her own way that if Biden were truly serious about keeping fentanyl out of the country, he would do something about the fact that much of it was coming across the porous southern border.

“Close the f***ing border then, dips***,” she said.

Caitlyn Jenner agreed, adding, “Hey here’s a thought! CLOSE. THE. BORDER.”

Monica Crowley suggested that in addition to the open border, Biden’s repeated deference to Chinese dictator Xi Jinping was part of the problem. “You just kissed the a** of Xi Jinping, who is sending the fentanyl across your wide open border to kill us. Sit TF down.”

Congressional candidate Joe Kent (R-WA) weighed in as well, saying, “Biden & dems like Marie Perez will talk about fentanyl while deliberately leaving our borders wide open. They don’t care that over 100k Americans have been killed by fentanyl if they did, they’d close the borders. Records matter, not their hollow words & performative acts.”

“You had our top fentanyl supplier in our country last week, dumba**,” podcaster Eric Matheny replied. “You rolled out the red carpet for him, flew Chinese flags, and even cleaned the s*** and needles off the streets of San Francisco.”
