President Biden recently traveled to Israel to show support for the country after the October 7 attack.
Biden read a prepared statement and affirmed that it was a Hamas rocket misfire that caused the disaster near a hospital in Gaza. it wasn’t the most affirming statement but hey, it’s Biden.
“I was deeply saddened and outraged by the explosion at a hospital in Gaza yesterday,’ Biden declared.
“And based on what I’ve seen, it appears as though it was done by the other team, not, not you. But there’s a lot of people out there who are not sure. We’ve got to overcome a lot of things.”
Biden: ‘Israel did not bomb the hospital, it was done by them’.

Biden did say that Hamas made ISIS “look somewhat more rational.”
As the President was returning to the United States he gave an impromptu presser and as the CBS interview noted a few days earlier he was tired.
Of note Biden did affirm for the third time that Hamas was responsible for the carnage at the hospital in Gaza.
Now, when you watch the clips below look to the left side and you’ll see Anthony Blinken seeming to pray that Biden says the right things.

The angst on Blinken’s face…
Joe Biden addresses reporters in very broken sentences:
large number of people have been victimized and lost, I spoke to them…
I learned a long time ago, but you all learned in your life as well

Despite the protestors, there are several polls showing that the majority of Americans support Israel and their decision to go to war. Biden was there to affirm it, but the real problem is within his own party.
