Never one to take the blame for any wrongdoing in his life, President Joe Biden is continuing that trend as he told reporters that he deserves “no” criticism for mishandling classified documents.
As Americans know well, the FBI has found numerous classified documents strewn throughout the Acela corridor at places including the Penn-Biden Think Tank and even the president’s own garage in Delaware. The president’s latchkey son, Hunter, of course, had access to both of those locations — adding concern that Biden the elder hadn’t taken too much care with America’s secrets after he vacated the vice presidency in 2017.
On Monday, Biden tersely answered “No,” when asked if he took any blame for the mishandling of said documents:

Biden has previously claimed that he has “no regrets” over the scandal and that critics were pursuing a dead end.
“I think you’re gonna find there’s nothing there. I have no regrets,” he told reporters in late January. “I’m following what the lawyers have told me they want me to do — that’s exactly what we’re doing. There’s no there there.”
So if Biden doesn’t deserve any scrutiny, then who does? Well, according to a CNN article from January that sounded more like a press release penned by White House outgoing Chief of Staff Ron Klain, it was Biden’s staffers’ fault.
Biden, you’re supposed to believe, was too busy gallivanting around the globe ending the career of dutiful public service described by his fan club at CNN. Thus, as his team was closing up shop, more and more documents were flooding his office, creating a chaotic scenario.
“Those competing objectives – to use his office until the final minutes even as it was obliged to shut down – made for a muddled and hurried process that left aides packing boxes of documents and papers late into the night, even as more material kept arriving,” CNN observed.
Who was Biden meeting with? Well, curiously enough, he was rushing off to finalize business with Ukraine, China, and the World Economic Forum. What he was doing on such travel can only be speculated, but perhaps the answer can be found buried deep in Biden’s own pockets.
Regardless, one thing should be evident by now to all Americans. The president wants all of the credit and none of the blame. As pointed out by RNC staffer Kyle Martinsen, there’s a bit of a trend with the commander-in-chief.
On everything from inflation to COVID deaths and everything in between, it seems Biden is never at fault:
