Voting in a gormless dimwit with the mental capacity of a grapefruit has consequences. Who knew?

After rising to the presidency on a foundation of “not being Donald Trump,” it’s becoming obvious that Joe Biden is the incompetent buffoon many presumed him to be. Unfortunately, it’s too late. We’ve bought the ticket, we’re locked into the ride, and all we can do is hold on tight until the end, as everything falls apart around us.

First, there’s the economy. In April, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) — which measures overall inflation of the U.S. dollar — rose 0.8%, “capping off the largest 12-month jump in prices since the period ending September 2008 after the beginning of the Great Recession.”

Inflation comes after a disastrous jobs report, with CNBC reporting that “Hiring was a huge letdown in April, with nonfarm payrolls increasing by a much less than expected 266,000 and the unemployment rate rose to 6.1% amid an escalating shortage of available workers. Dow Jones estimates had been for 1 million new jobs and an unemployment rate of 5.8%.”

Throw in a country teetering on the edge of a gas crisis, with the national average price for a gallon of gasoline rising to its highest level since the Obama presidency, the economy is far from “secure.”

Then there’s the ongoing border crisis, which actually worsened during the month of April, despite the Biden administration’s refusal to acknowledge the problem. According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, immigration arrests and detentions on the border between the U.S. and Mexico rose in April to 178,622, representing a 3% increase from March. This is the highest level in the history of the Department of Homeland Security.

Of course, this isn’t the Biden administration’s fault! It’s the fault of the media — the same media Democrats praised for their “bravery” under Trump.

“A big driver” of the impression that the border crisis is a border crisis, said White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, was “the nature of some components of social media and media these days.” 

Then, last but not least, there’s the collapse of American foreign policy, demonstrated by the resurgence of a nuclear Iran and an explosion of violence in Israel following terrorist attacks on Jewish civilians by Hamas.

Part of the blame for our current state of affairs lies with Donald Trump and the former Trump administration. Their hyper-focus on supposed “election fraud” left Georgia undefended, handing the federal government to the Democrats. Their inability to pull some punches on social media made an inoffensive corpse-like figure such as Joe Biden appear like a calming alternative.

The vast majority of the blame, however, lies with us, the voters. After all, elections have consequences, and the consequences of voting in a bumbling incompetent fool like Joe Biden are possibly disastrous.

Unemployment is soaring, the economy is wobbling, illegal immigration is surging, and our allies are under attack.

But at least the mean tweets stopped, right?
