President Joe Biden sat down for an interview with ABC News’ David Muir for “World News Tonight ” that was aired on Friday night. In the interview, an awkward moment arose when Biden said he “can’t recall” if he is going to East Palestine, Ohio to visit with members of the community harmed by the ecological disaster or if he had talked with the mayor of the town. Watch:
“So do you plan to travel to East Palestine and have you talked to the mayor?” Muir asked.
“I can’t recall,” Biden replied.
Biden on Friday had another eyebrow-raising response to a reporter who asked him about his plans to visit East Palestine, Ohio.
Q: Are you planning to travel to East Palestine Ohio?
BIDEN: This time, I’m not. I was — I did a whole video — I mean — you know, the — what the hell — on —

“Are you planning to travel to East Palestine Ohio?” the reporter asked.
“This time, I’m not. I was — I did a whole video — I mean — you know, the — what the hell — on,” Biden blurted out.
“Zoom?” the reporter asked.
“Zoom! Zoom. All I can hear every time I think of Zoom is that song of my generation, Who’s Zoomin’ Who?” Biden joked.
Again, that was Friday. And Joe Biden couldn’t recall if he had talked with the mayor of if he had plans to go to East Palestine or not.
One person who most definitely could recall if he had visited East Palestine and talked with the mayor is former President Donald Trump.
John Rourke, Blue Line Moving company CEO, appeared with Tucker Carlson and provided his assessment of Biden’s avoidance of visiting the community.
“The fact that President Biden has refused to come to this small town when he’s supposed to be Scranton Joe, a small town hero of the working man, and he can’t even show his face in a town of American citizens that need his leadership, that need the government’s help terribly,” Rourke said.
“And he proved what everybody I think already knew in this country is that he’s not the leader for this country,” he added. “And that Donald J. Trump is the leader that we all know he is, and he is the leader of this country. And he proved that today. That was leadership that I saw today. I saw people standing on the streets screaming for this man chanting ‘USA, USA.’ I mean, it just gives me goosebumps.”
“And, and to have President Trump personally thank me, I mean, it almost brought me to tears, man,” Rourke added. “To be honest. you know, I’m just a humble guy. I’m a working man family man. And to be able to, you know, have someone like him thank me personally was a big deal for me in my family.”
It’s a notion that President Biden apparently doesn’t grasp. Maybe he needs to “recall” what the job of a U.S. President is. It’s to be there for Americans in their time of need instead of traveling around the world hugging corrupt foreign leaders.
