(NewsGlobal.com)- Last Tuesday, conservatives on Twitter began retweeting a two-year-old tweet from then-candidate Joe Biden that aged about as well as milk left out on a hot day.
On February 21, 2020, Democrat candidate Joe tweeted, “Vladimir Putin doesn’t want me to be President. He doesn’t want me to be our nominee. If you’re wondering why — it’s because I’m the only person in this field who’s ever gone toe-to-toe with him.”
Biden has never gone “toe-to-toe” with any world leader, let alone Vladimir Putin.
The only person we know Biden ever went “toe-to-toe” with was a random autoworker in Michigan.
Now that Joe Biden is president, we know exactly what his idea of going “toe-to-toe” with Putin is.
During his June 2021 summit with Putin, in the face of crippling cyberattacks from Russian-linked hackers, tough-guy Joe gave the Russian president a list of the 16 sectors Joe asked Putin not to hack.
A month before their summit, Biden waived the sanctions on Nord Stream 2, handing Putin a significant victory.
By allowing Nord Stream 2 to go forward, Biden also handed Putin a great deal of leverage over western Europe.
If this is Biden’s idea of going “toe-to-toe” with Putin, Putin is going to mop the floor with him.
Like that two-year-old tweet, this 2019 video also aged like curdled milk:

But Joe Biden has always had a penchant for pretending to be a tough guy.
It’s why he liked to boast about taking Donald Trump out behind the gym to beat him up.
It’s why he would challenge reporters and voters alike to wrestling matches and push-up contests.
Joe sees himself as the muscle-bound tough when in reality he’s a 98-pound weakling with a big mouth.
