Wow. How awkward!
Joe Biden and Dr. Jill, in a tight-fitting plastic bag, honored Elton John last night in Washington DC.
During the ceremony, at one point Joe Biden wrapped his arm around Elton and told the crowd, “By the way, it’s all his fault we are spending $6 billion in tax payer dollars on HIV and AIDS this month.”
Why is that, Joe? It’s his fault because he’s gay? What the hell, Joe?
And, for the record, Joe has NO IDEA what he’s talking about once again.
According to HIV.gov the US spent $7 billion on AIDS funding in 2020.
The US spent $7.2 billion on AIDS funding in 2021.
And the US spent $7.4 billion on AIDS funding in fiscal year 2022.
So it’s not clear where Joe pulled that number from.
If the US is spending $6 billion a month on AIDS at this point there needs to be a readjustment.
