Bloomberg News has reported that the Biden White House and Pentagon have been aware of a Chinese spy balloon approaching mainland U.S. for about a week but they opted to just hope that nobody else noticed it. Well, a Montana media outlet did notice, and you know what happened next. The story has been in the news for a couple of days, but yesterday President Biden didn’t want to answer any related questions.
Biden is in Wilmington, Delaware this weekend — perhaps to spend more time with some classified documents in his garage — but he’s finally commented on the situation. Biden gave this assurance as the Chinese balloon is headed east and nearing the Atlantic:
POTUS just made his first comments on the balloon, it seems. Per pool:
Just before entering the Beast, he answered a shouted appeal for a “comment on China.”
“We’re gonna take care of it,” he said before entering the vehicle.

Media reports are now saying that the White House is considering downing the balloon over the Atlantic.
America, have no fear. Joe and Hunter Biden are going to take care of it.
So comforting. 😳 https://t.co/2Po6pB5ucB

Time will tell what “take care of” means.
Does this provide a clue?
