Joe Biden has introduced us to a game we never thought we'd have to play with the alleged leader of the free world.
It's called “Three Guesses as to What the Doddering Dude Is Saying?” For the win, you get the grand prize if you're able to figure it out. Unfortunately, sometimes, it's a pretty hard game.
It seems that multiple times a week we're scratching our heads trying to figure out just exactly what he said. Now, I really have no idea what the heck he said here. People have said it sounds like “My butt's been wiped.”

Indeed it does, but then why would he be saying that? I don't know, it's Joe. There is no rationale for the insanity. This is our “leader.”
In case you think that clip wasn't real, here it is in full context. Not that the context helps. He totters up to them looking like he has a bit of a gait disorder. “Does immigration need to be in reconciliation? A pathway for citizenship?” the reporters ask him. Then he says whatever that weird phrase is.
“Does immigration need to be in reconciliation?A pathway for citizenship?” @POTUS was asked returning to the White House
“There needs to be a pathway to citizenship whether it needs to be in immigration remains to be seen,” he said (he appeared to mean reconciliation) pic.twitter.com/cDiNoG31h3

Here's another angle.
Full interview of @POTUS “my butt has been wiped” comment.
Why, did not a single reporter, ask…excuse me Mr. President?
Can you clarify what happened to your butt?
Journalism is dead…

The reporters all laugh as though this is normal and he rambles off. But even his more coherent response needs more explanation because it doesn't make sense. “There needs to be a pathway to citizenship whether it needs to be in immigration remains to be seen,” he said. Um, ok? Where would it be, if not in immigration?
Now, if we can't figure it out, you have to think they would have had trouble too. Why didn't any of them ask? They just laugh and he moves on. Do they not care that he just says something completely incoherent?
Maybe he did say it, weird as it is. But then do we have to wonder who wiped his butt? And why am I having to ask that of the alleged leader of the free world? Imagine what other countries are thinking about this craziness.
The reporters are actually are asking a pretty serious question – are you going to include amnesty in the reconciliation bill, that's basically what they're asking. And he doesn't really give an answer to it, amongst all the weirdness.
Trump walked slowly down a ramp one time and it was a week-long news cycle yet the current occupant of the Oval Office can keep having moments like this and it’s apparently not newsworthy. https://t.co/uPQTpTLCts
