Biden said Putin cannot remain in power. That’s what he said. Everything they are trying to do to fix him saying that is painfully absurd. Or in the case of U.S. Ambassador to NATO Julianne Smith, awkwardly, embarrassingly CRINGE.
You can tell, btw, that Dana Bash hated putting her on the spot and hated following up on the dodging even more. The press HATE having to question Biden administration officials.
This is the perfect 2 and a half minutes to represent the entire day for the administration. They’ve all played some version of this out for 24 hours.
So bad. So amateur.
They can’t explain it away, and they didn’t have the guts to stand by it. Losers on both ends.
