Speaking at a fundraiser for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee on Thursday night, President Biden told attendees that America is closer to armageddon now than at any time since the Cuban missile crisis. Thanks, Joe!
“[Putin was] not joking when he talks about the use of tactical nuclear weapons or biological or chemical weapons,” Biden said. “We have not faced the prospect of Armageddon since Kennedy and the Cuban Missile Crisis.”
Putin has been threatening to use weapons of mass destruction in Ukraine —and against enemies abroad.
“I want to remind you that our country also has various means of destruction, and for separate components and more modern than those of NATO countries, and when the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, to protect Russia and our people, we will certainly use all the means at our disposal,” Putin said in an address last month.
Conservative radio host Clay Travis shared Biden’s comments, reminding Twitter that everyone thought Joe was the “safe choice.”
“Joe Biden just said the risk of nuclear Armageddon is at its highest level since 1962. Remember when all the blue checks on here told you Biden was the safe choice for president? Welp, here we are.”
