Biden and the White House called an early lid before noon on Monday following a daily presidential briefing at 10 a.m. and the President then proceeded to continue to relax at his home in Delaware as if nothing important was going on.
“It is Monday, before noon, and President Biden/the White House have called a lid at 11:27 am,” conservative commentator Katie Pavlich reported.
“The White House has called a travel pool lid at 11:27,” the White House pool report stated. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki also wasn’t scheduled to give a briefing on Monday afternoon as she usually does. Biden reportedly spent all weekend at his Wilmington, Delaware home.
Many found it curious that Biden would be so lackadaisical concerning national matters. There are so many things going on that it is baffling as to why Biden would just call it a day before noon. Early lids are commonplace in the Biden administration.

Joe Biden did not return from Delaware today and we have had consecutive days with no public events and early press lids. We have no further guidance on POTUS’s movements for the rest of the week.

The president who spent the weekend at his home in Wilmington, DE will remain there today with no public events and no press briefing today. A bit of August vacation.

Senate Democrats and Republicans are still battling it out over the massive $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill. Democrats are getting ready for the big push on the monstrous $3.5 trillion reconciliation package as well.
The pandemic is still front and center as thousands of illegal immigrants surge over our southern border every day. Over the weekend, a Border Patrol agent was targeted and shot at from Mexico.
Got confirmation from CBP a Border Patrol agent in the El Paso Sector was fired upon, around 20 rounds, from two individuals from the Mexican side of the border. The agent took cover and was not hit. https://t.co/k4VJK5UAwn pic.twitter.com/bQ45TUiITG

Crime and inflation are both spiraling out of control but the issues of the day seem to not give the President much pause.
However, before calling a lid, Biden did release a statement concerning the ongoing unrest and government crackdowns that are taking place in Belarus.
“One year ago today, the people of Belarus sought to make their voices heard and shape their own future through that most basic expression of democracy—an election. Rather than respect the clear will of the Belarusian people, the Lukashenka regime perpetrated election fraud, followed by a brutal campaign of repression to stifle dissent. From detaining thousands of peaceful protesters to imprisoning more than 500 activists, civil society leaders, and journalists as political prisoners, to forcing the diversion of an international flight in an affront to global norms, the actions of the Lukashenka regime are an illegitimate effort to hold on to power at any price,” Biden declared.
“It is the responsibility of all those who care about human rights, free and fair elections, and freedom of expression to stand against this oppression. The United States will continue to stand up for human rights and free expression, while holding the Lukashenka accountable, in concert with our allies and partners. Toward that end, today, we are issuing a new Executive Order that enhances our ability to impose costs on the regime and announcing new sanctions against Belarusian individuals and entities for their role in attacks on democracy and human rights, transnational repression, and corruption,” the President continued.
“As I told the leader of the Belarusian opposition, Svyatlana Tsikhanouskaya, we stand with the people of Belarus as they bravely pursue their democratic aspirations,” he concluded.
Still no word from Biden on the Chinese, Russian, or Iranian threats, however. And nobody seems to know what Vice President Kamala Harris is up to these days.
No one seemed surprised in the least that Biden called it a day in the morning on Monday:
Good thing there’s nothing important going on.

Do us all a favor and just call a lid on the whole Biden administration.

Can we call a lid on this disastrous Biden presidency? I wish I could wake up tomorrow and not have a bumbling fool for President. We all need to seriously pray he gets better at his job and for this nation to heal and move in a better direction. https://t.co/ihsT7S2Ati

Thank God. That means they can’t do anymore damage to the country today.

How long do we put up with a guy that has to be propped up to fake function?

He’s in throes of a dementia episode. They return him to his familiar surroundings in Wilmington weekly to hopefully get his bearings again. It’s not working.

The need for a President physically and mentally capable of working a full week is becoming increasingly apparent.

Imagine us normal working-class people going up to our boss at midday and saying we are calling a lid on the day. We are sure to have no repercussions…
