Biden isn’t exactly having a great week. It was so bad his campaign sent out a letter to media outlets.
The recent New York Times poll showing Trump leading in battleground states shook them up. Biden-Harris 2024 communications director Michael Tyler sent out a memo to the media, furious that the poll received massive amounts of coverage.
During an event Biden was asked about his phone call with Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu and about a possible “three-day pause.”
A reporter asked, “Sir, did you ask Bibi for a three-day pause?”
“Heat pumps?” Biden replied.
“Did you ask the prime minister of Israel for a three-day pause?” The reporter said in response.
“Didn’t get a chance to talk to him today. Did ask him for a pause in the past. Yesterday,” Biden added.

“Heat pumps?” Wow. Just wow.
Biden may be out of it but the machine is still moving. Recently, National Review reported on a draft letter written by Democrat Senator Dick Durbin to pressure the Biden administration to settle Gaza Palestinian refugees in the the United States.
Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois and progressive Representative Pramila Jayapal of Washington, are demanding that the White House designate the Palestinian territories a “Temporary Protected Status,” permitting foreign nationals to stay in the United States to avoid the escalating war in the Middle East.
“We urge your Administration to designate the Palestinian territories for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and/or authorize Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for Palestinians present in the United States,” the draft letter to President Joe Biden, first obtained by the Daily Caller on Tuesday, reads. “As you know, TPS and DED offer temporary relief from removal and work authorization for eligible foreign nationals who are unable to return safely to their home countries or part of a country.’”
“In light of [the] ongoing armed conflict, Palestinians already in the United States should not be forced to return to the Palestinian territories,” the note continues before explaining the worsening conditions in the Gaza Strip. “Following the horrific October 7 terrorist attack by Hamas and Israel’s ensuing military response, conditions in the Palestinian territories have greatly deteriorated.” Citing a United Nations agency, Durbin and fellow Democrats noted, “as of October 29, at least 8,000 Palestinians have been killed. This includes more than 3,300 children, which, according to Save the Children, is more than the number of children killed in all of the world’s armed conflicts on an annual basis since 2019.”
“TPS or DED would enable Palestinians currently present in the U.S., including students, tourists, and workers, to be protected from a dangerous return to their homeland while affording them the ability to remain safely in the U.S. and to work legally to support themselves and their families,” the draft letter, which will also be delivered to Secretary of State Antony Blinken, concluded. “As such, we urge your Administration to designate the Palestinian territories for TPS and/or to authorize DED for Palestinians in the United States without delay.”
This was obviously the next move.
Imagine not seeing this one coming. https://t.co/A2YNbSX42S
