As many complain about President Joe Biden’s historically unprecedented lack of press conferences since his inauguration, and his frequent memory lapses, and disappearances, many are asking if he is really in charge. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich says he is not.

In his assessment, the ones increasingly running his White House are Vice President Kamala Harris, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

During an appearance Thursday on “Fox News,” Gingrich said that he believes that Biden is a “very minor force” in policy issues at the White House.

Specifically, the former Speaker explained about Biden:

 When you’re dealing with a president who forgets the name of his Secretary of Defense and forgets the name of the Pentagon?  … I think we really underestimate the degree to which he’s detached from reality and the degree to which people will, later on, look back and say, gosh, there were terrible consequences, why didn’t we know better?


I really do think this is becoming the ‘Harris-Biden’ administration and you can tell that every time you see him in public. Why would you think that he’s dramatically better in private than he is when he can’t take any questions in public, he can’t remember what he’s talking about, he can’t remember his own nominees. My assumption is he is a very minor force inside that building and that the White House is increasingly run by Harris, Pelosi, and Schumer.

Gingrich also slammed what he called the “Harris-Biden administration” for placing a “welcome mat” for an onslaught of illegal immigrants, arguing the massive influx of illegal immigrants would eventually, and profoundly, “shake the fabric” of American society.

No surprise here about that. Sleepy Joe couldn’t navigate out of his own basement in 2020, what makes us think he’s in charge at the White House? In fact, they probably keep him in the White House basement and prop him up at the podium for public appearances and inject him with some ginko byloba (?sp) before he speaks!

Didn’t you hear, they arrested about 5 people….. They really got to the root of it though/sarc Perhaps if they had the same fervor as they did tracking the insurrectionists from Jan 6, we may have a few THOUSAND arrests..

There are millions of graves in cemeteries and everyone of them voted for alla/chin joe. I hope the liberals that voted for dumb of dumber and dumber get what they were promised. No jobs, higher taxes, higher gas prices, Chinese language tutors for free and, of course, all rights provided in the Bill of Rights and Constitution taken away. The bad part is these liberals also are punishing the rest of us. DemonRATS have been lying to the Americans for decades and they never come through for their voters.

Hell no they cheated President Trump WON THAT ELECTION HANDS DOWN! Sleepy Joe is not President, he is a puppet and will sign anything put in front of him but does not even know what he just signed. Harris runs the show, Biden is just a figurehead, not a president! WHAT A JOKE THEY ALL ARE!

While he was supposed to be on “live tv from the Rose garden” it was proven false, as a guy was filming at the exact same time and the garden was EMPTY! CNN had it live though, just ask them!

Evidently you backed someone that doesn’t even know his name. Everyone and I mean everyone knows that his mind is shot and that it was never great to begin with. I thought Muslim bama was the worst president we ever had but in less that 100 days I have been wrong. Alla/Chin joe is definitely worse. And since you backed this idiot you can pay my taxes for the next four years.
