After President Joe Biden made a complete fool of himself by admitting he may have shot down a high school science project, he lost his cool.
On February 16, 2023, Biden finally gave an update on the “objects” in the sky he ordered to be shot down after a CCP spy balloon humiliated him.
“We don’t yet know exactly what these three objects were. But nothing — nothing right now suggests they were related to China’s spy balloon program or that they were surveillance vehicles from other — any other country,” the President said.
“The intelligence community’s current assessment is that these three objects were most likely balloons tied to private companies, recreation, or research institutions studying weather or conducting other scientific research,” Biden added.

During his address, Biden stuck with the original talking point and left out the US knew about the balloon as soon as it was launched in China.
“When one of these high-altitude surveillance balloons entered our airspace over the continental United States earlier in the month, I gave the order to shoot it down as soon as it would be safe to do so,” Biden said. “The military advised against shooting it down over land because of the sheer size of it. It was the size of multiple school busses, and it posed a risk to people on the ground if it was shot down where people lived.”
Quick question…If this object was the size of “multiple school busses” why did they think no one would notice it?
But what occurred after Biden’s remarks got him so mad he just turned away and started muttering.
Below is a partial transcript:
Reporter: Mr. President, why did you wait so long to address the public on this matter, Mr. President?
Reporter: Sir, there’s been a criticism — there’s been criticism of this —
Reporter: When are you speaking to President Xi, Mr. President?
Reporter: Is this deal with China compromised by your family’s business relationships in China, President Biden?
Biden: Give me a break, man!
Reporter: Sir — Mr. President — Mr. President, there’s been criticism —
Reporter: Did you overreact?
Reporter: — Mr. President, there’s been criticism that this was an overreaction that was done because of political pressure —
(Cross-talk by reporters.)
Biden: I can’t —
Reporter: Is your son still —
Biden: You can come to my office and ask the question when you have more polite people (muttering).
That hit a little too close to home. Watch, his upper lip starts to quiver before he shuffles off muttering.
