“Where is Joe Biden” has become a common expression whenever trouble arises in the country.
The answer has more often than not been that he’s in his basement in Delaware.
Biden has allegedly spent 1/4 of last year in his home state.
You’d think maybe there was somewhere else he should have been…
Certainly not in Washington D.C…
Certainly not at the southern border addressing the crisis there…
Certainly not facing the press while they ask him questions about the lives lost in Afghanistan…
Nope, Joe is usually just vacationing in his home state.

The New York Post broke the stunning statistic:
President Biden spent 28 percent of his first year as commander-in-chief back home in Delaware, worrying transparency advocates who note that he exempted his homes from visitor log disclosure.
Biden, who returns to the White House on Monday night from his house in Wilmington, simply likes being home, his press representatives say.
But critics are concerned about who may be seeking to influence public policy while paying Biden or his family a visit.
“Generally speaking, the American people have a right to know what the president is up to. This president specifically changed policy to presumably disclose who’s been visiting the White House,” said Tom Fitton, president of conservative legal group Judicial Watch, which for years has battled for White House visitor log transparency.
“The decision to keep secret who is visiting Delaware makes a mockery of that transparency. It turns it into a joke,” Fitton said.
Biden spent at least part of 101 days of his first year in office in Delaware — almost always at either his primary residence in Wilmington or his vacation home in Rehoboth Beach.
As inflation hits a 40 year high and Americans see bare shelves across the country, Joe Biden is going on vacation in Delaware this weekend… AGAIN.
Joe Biden doesn’t care about the hurt he has caused Americans.

Remember when Biden claimed he doesn’t have time to go the border?
He has visited Delaware 32 times.

The masked Joe Biden drags in from his cozy Delaware beach property—where he’s spent 25% of his presidency.

Social media users roasted Biden over his frequent trips to his home state:

Here’s the best part…
Biden literally told everyone he was going to spend a vast amount of his time in Delaware even before the 2020 election.

He said this back in November of 2020!
Most mainstream news outlets are fine ignoring this, but at least the New York Post was willing to draw attention to Biden’s poor priorities then and now:
Most presidents have had their own personal getaway homes aside from Camp David, usually dubbed the “Summer White House” or “Winter White House,” depending on the season in which it was used most.
Biden, however, will be the first to have a “Summer White House” in Delaware.
