President Biden was caught on a hit mic Wednesday thumping his chest while speaking with Ray Murphy, the mayor of Fort Myers Beach, and declaring “no one f***s with a Biden.”
Biden was touring Fort Myers as the city tries to recover from the devastation wrought by Hurricane Ian.
Murphy thanked him for taking the time to visit and told the President to “keep the faith.”
“By the way, you’re raised the same way I was,” he interjected. “No one fucks with a Biden.”
“You’re goddamn right,” a laughing Murphy replied.

“It was not directed at anybody. It was just two guys talking. It didn’t faze me one bit,” Murphy told NBC News. “That’s just the way two guys talk to each other from our respective backgrounds.”

Still, critics couldn’t help but laugh at the ‘no one f***s with a Biden’ mantra.
“‘Nobody fucks with a Biden…’ tweeted comedian Tim Young. “Teleprompters, stairs, bikes, dementia, sentences and solid foods are another conversation altogether.”

“He probably just got done telling the Corn Pop story,” joked columnist Benny Johnson.
Comedian Nick DiPaolo quipped, “I know about 350 escorts who would disagree!”
DiPaolo’s comments were a reference to Hunter Biden, the President’s son, whose penchant for prostitutes and drugs has been well documented by his own laptop.

OPEC Embarrassed Him on the Very Same Day
Others pointed out the irony in Biden’s comments on a day that OPEC and Saudi Arabia very publicly embarrassed the President.
OPEC announced Wednesday that it will slash oil production by about 2 million barrels per day, a move meant to curb oil prices but will almost certainly cause gasoline prices to rise in the United States just five weeks before the midterm elections.
This comes after the Biden administration, according to CNN, “launched a full-scale pressure campaign in a last-ditch effort to dissuade Middle Eastern allies from cutting oil production.”
The response amounts to a massive ‘eff you.’
Let’s be clear about what happened:
1. Biden destroyed America’s oil/gas industry and made us dependent on OPEC again.
2. Biden begged OPEC to produce more oil.
3. OPEC is doing the opposite—cutting output by 2 million barrels a day.
Total failure. OPEC is laughing at him.

This comes after reports surfaced in March that leaders in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) refused to take calls from the White House as Biden was pushing for more oil production during the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
They messed with him so badly that the left-wing host of “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah, pointed out that such a move would never have taken place under former President Donald Trump.
“That must have been really embarrassing for Biden. Can you imagine?” Noah wondered. “He phones them and they don’t pick up?”
Looks like even Trevor Noah is getting tired of Biden. He’s right, Trump wouldn’t take crap from anyone but Biden is the laughing stock of international politics.pic.twitter.com/MxwVwQYI7X

Adding insult to injury, a state-run television station in Saudi Arabia mercilessly mocked President Biden in a comedy skit just a few weeks later.

On Wednesday, the US Oil and Gas Association took a jab at Biden for his failures in negotiating with OPEC.
“The White House has one option left and it is the one option they should have never turned away from in the first place – the US-based oil and gas industry,” the group tweeted.
“Life comes at you pretty fast,” they added.
US Oil and Gas Association:
OPEC said no. The SPR option is all but gone now. The White House has one option left. It’s the one they should have never turned away from in the first place. The US Oil and Gas industry and it’s workers.
Life comes at you pretty fast….”

Anne Bradbury, CEO of the American Exploration and Production Council, blasted President Biden for his “nonsensical” energy policies.
Even the New York Times slammed the President’s “failure” involving “his fist-bump diplomacy over the summer with the crown prince of Saudi Arabia.”
Biden’s sell-his-soul fist bump with the Saudi crown prince yielded a promise to increase oil production by a measly 100,000 barrels a day, or 0.1% of global supply. Now the Saudi-led OPEC Plus is expected to CUT production at 500,000 barrels a day. https://t.co/UgyZn5D5y2 pic.twitter.com/ToOCc8CjwY

Critics have also pointed out that the President’s ineptitude with foreign policy has caused many nations to ‘f***’ with a Biden.
Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) ignored his calls, the Taliban overran Afghanistan within hours of his botched withdrawal last summer, and Russia opted to make its move on Ukraine under his administration.
Is there anybody who hasn’t screwed with Biden at this point?
