Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me – unless you are a world leader! French President Emmanuel Macron has been warning US President Joe Biden to THINK before speaking. At best, Biden causes confusion when he derails from the teleprompter. At worst, he drags the world into a massive conflict that can never be undone.
Macron warned Biden back in March of the dangers of using “personal insults” and inflammatory language as it would only heighten tensions between the West and Russia.“For God’s sake, [Putin] cannot remain in power,” Biden recklessly said. This caused an uproar globally. Russia was offended that the US was not respecting their election process. He called Putin a war criminal as well, eliminating any prospect of a diplomatic discussion between the two. The White House was forced to backtrack to clarify that the US had no intention of removing the Russian leader. Macron responded to the matter by saying, before Biden’s “gaffe,” that his aim was “achieving first a ceasefire and then the total withdrawal of [Russian] troops by diplomatic means.”
Clearly all diplomatic measures have since been a lost cause. Biden’s blatantly reckless speeches have only caused increasing tensions. The US president said that the world was closer than ever to a “nuclear Armageddon” and began fanning the fears of a world war fought with weapons of mass destruction. Macron and other world leaders were disgusted. “We must speak with prudence when commenting on such matters,” Macron told reporters. “I have always refused to engage in political fiction, and especially … when speaking of nuclear weapons,” he added. “On this issue, we must be very careful.”
Everyone is kindly asking the US Embarrassment-in-Chief to shut his mouth. He has done enough
