Biden garbles message on cease-fire: 'He blew it'

Fox and Friends blasted President Biden for confusing his message on the conflict in Israel after he appeared to contradict himself.

Biden has mostly taken Israel's side, rejecting calls for a cease-fire as the Jewish state reckons with the deadly Hamas attack that killed 1,400 Israelis.

But at a White House event Monday, Biden said he would consider a cease-fire once Hamas releases all of its hostages.

"We should have a cease-fire...not a cease-fire, we should have those hostages released and then we can talk," he said.

Biden steps in it....

The hosts of Fox and Friends took turns ripping Biden's devil-may-care hold on foreign policy, as tensions in the Middle East raise fears of a wider conflict developing.

Steve Doocy said Biden undermined his government's message.

“Obviously, the U.S. Government has a policy, and it’s no ceasefire,” Doocy said. “But he said, ‘We should have a cease-fire, no, not a cease-fire.’ He just blew it! That’s the problem, and unfortunately, the whole world is looking at him, and he screwed up his own message."

What Doocy failed to note is that the president is the one who sets foreign policy, so technically, Biden can say whatever he wants. But therein lies the problem.

It is precisely Biden's capricious approach to world affairs that has often left many people with agita.

Biden keeps world on edge

Biden has been known to make hair-raising comments in moments of global crisis. His aides were left scrambling last year when he famously called for a coup against Vladimir Putin following his invasion of Ukraine.

Brian Kilmeade ripped Biden's casual answers to questions of great significance.

"Are you for a cease-fire? Are we waiting for hostages? Are we not waiting for hostages? How many hostages do we have?" Kilmeade asked. "And by the way, I’m going to make a huge statement while walking away off mic! Stand there and answer the question, or don’t!"

Many on the right have blasted Biden's approach to the conflict in Israel as weak and equivocal in the face of Hamas' brutal terror, while those on his left have called him an enabler of "genocide" in Gaza.

Biden's chief rival Donald Trump has said the wars in Israel and Ukraine would not be happening under a Trump administration.
