Sick But Not Surprising, Biden Flushed Taxpayer's Money For A Greasy Photo Op
With families struggling to cover rising interest rates and food costs it would be nice if the Biden administration at least pretended to care. Instead, Biden dropped another massive burden on taxpayers for no other reason than for a photo op.
Biden took Air Force One, two motorcades and used local police protection to travel from Washington, D.C., to Delaware just to vote Tuesday, rather than filing an absentee ballot as past presidents have. Jean-Pierre attempted to explain the decision during a presser with reporters Wednesday.
"Can you tell us why the president went to Wilmington yesterday to vote in the primary when he could have had an absentee ballot, or he could have voted in person early voting when he was there last weekend?" a reporter asked.
"I know there's been a lot of interest in this. So every American, as you know, has the sacred and constitutional right to vote. The president exercised that right alongside other Delawareans last night," Jean-Pierre responded.
"The president has a very heavy schedule. He's the president of the United States. It worked out best for him to vote yesterday, to vote on Tuesday. He thought it was important to exercise his constitution, the right to vote, as I just mentioned, and set an example by showing the importance of voting," she added.
The exact cost of Biden's trip to Delaware is unclear, but the Air Force revealed in 2014 that the average cost per flying hour (CPFH) of the Presidential Boeing 747 was $206,337.
Typically in this scenario, Biden could have sent in an absentee ballot and no one would have cared. However, Biden wants to drum up support for his Democratic buddies and he figured the best way to do that is a greasy photo op that cost as much as a home for most people.
