(FiveNation.com)- President Joe Biden insulted the United States of America during a visit from Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga on Friday. It was the first visit from a foreign leader for the new president, and he used the opportunity to slam the United States rather than praise it and maintain the important relationship between the United States and Japan.
Why on earth would President Biden use the visit from a foreign world leader as an opportunity to criticize and insult his own country?
During a joint press conference with Prime Minister Suga, Biden offered some scripted answers to “questions” from reporters and derailed the conversation into the issue of gun control.
“Every single day there’s a mass shooting in the United States,” President Biden said, pounding his fists on his podium.
There was a 20th Century German leader who liked to do that, too…and he also robbed his citizens of guns.
“It’s a national embarrassment and must come to an end,” President Biden said, in what appeared to be an effort to push his latest executive orders designed to curtail Americans’ Second Amendment Rights.

Biden’s indefensible attack on America, done in the presence of a world leader, came after he delegated the greeting of Prime Minister Suga to Vice President Kamala Harris.
In a short press conference, Suga stood awkwardly alongside Vice President Harris as she had her own criticisms of America to offer the press.
“Good morning! I briefly want to discuss the tragedy that occurred in Indianapolis last night. Yet again we have families in our country that are grieving the loss of their family members because of gun violence,” Harris said, as the Japanese PM just stood there and waited to be introduced.
President Joe Biden’s criticism of mass shootings is a criticism that much of the rest of America no doubt shares, but his solution to the problem is a divisive one.
Earlier this month, President Biden issued executive orders on gun control and ordered the Department of Justice to draft legislation for the consideration of states to introduce “red flag” laws that would stop people flagged as potentially dangerous from purchasing guns.
“The Justice Department, within 30 days, will issue a proposed rule to help stop the proliferation of “ghost guns.” We are experiencing a growing problem: criminals are buying kits containing nearly all of the components and directions for finishing a firearm within as little as 30 minutes and using these firearms to commit crimes,” a statement from the White House on the new executive orders reads.
“The Justice Department, within 60 days, will issue a proposed rule to make clear when a device marketed as a stabilizing brace effectively turns a pistol into a short-barreled rifle subject to the requirements of the National Firearms Act,” the statement added.
Model “red flag” legislation will also be available within 60 days of the announcement.
