President Biden struggled during NATO summit press conference Monday, forgetting a reporter’s question in the most awkward way. Then on Tuesday during the U.S. E.U. summit, he gaffed again. Even the president said “I’m going to get into trouble for this.”

CNN’s Jeff Zelny asked Biden if he still thought Russian President Vladimir Putin is a killer, as he previously said. Biden responded by laughing.

“I’m laughing too. They actually–Well look, he has made clear,” Biden began. What followed was seven seconds of awkward pause. “The answer is–I believe he has in the past essentially acknowledged that he was uh–there were certain things that he did do or would do.”

Meanwhile, Zelny had asked two questions. But Biden couldn’t remember the second question after his gaffe.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) brought attention to the gaffe on Twitter. Biggs called the president “blatantly impaired.”

Gaffes kept coming. The very next day Biden gaffed during the U.S. E.U. summit because he got distracted.

“And uh, I’ve said before and I apologize for the–Oh, I didn’t–Jake Sullivan from the State Department our National Security advisor,” Biden gestured toward Sullivan in the room. “I’m leaving out a lot of people here I apologize. I’m going to get in trouble. But, anyway, we’ll get back to that. But um we um uh you know there’s a lot that–that is–it’s happening.”

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
