Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy confronted Joe Biden this Thursday after it was revealed the president had kept classified documents in a garage in one of his Delaware homes.

Doocy pressed Biden, asking, “Mr. President, classified materials next to your Corvette? What were you thinking?”

To this, Biden replied, “I’m going to get a chance to speak on all this, God willing, soon, but as I said earlier this week, people — and, by the way, my Corvette is in a locked garage. Okay? So, it’s not like they’re sitting out in the street.”

Biden added, “As I said earlier this week, people know I take classified documents and classified material seriously.  I also said we’re cooperating fully and completely with the Justice Department’s review.  As part of that process, my lawyers reviewed other places where documents might of — from my time as Vice President were stored.  And they finished the review last night.”

This is a vital update but Biden’s excuse has some serious holes in it. After noting that the law doesn’t carve out exceptions for 1967 Corvette Stingrays, the National Review opines, “the presence of the U.S. Secret Service at the Biden residence does not make the site sufficiently secure for the storage of classified documents, any more than the presence of the U.S. Secret Service at Mar-a-Lago makes that site sufficiently secure.”

Indeed, it is hard to believe Biden would find this excuse compelling if it came from the mouth of former President Donald Trump. Commenting on the Mar-a-Lago raid, Biden called Trump “irresponsible” after a Justice Department photo showed the documents in Trump’s possession spread across a floor in Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence.

“[When I saw that image I thought] how could that possibly happen? How anyone could be that irresponsible, and I thought what data was in there that could compromise sources and methods. By that, I mean names of people who helped, etc. It was just totally irresponsible.”

After these revelations, President Biden has no leg to stand on. His incompetence is clear, and the American people need and deserve far better than Joe Biden.
