Let’s begin by getting two things straight.
First, Joe Biden would not be president of the United States — not even close — were it not for being blatantly and continually propped up by the mainstream media. Second, the so-called “mainstream” media is anything but; choosing instead to operate as the quasi-official mouthpiece of the Democrat Party.
So, what do hopelessly biased news outlets do when their president of choice implodes from Day One and proceeds to have the most disastrous first year in office in at least modern history?
What the left always does when their guy self-destructs: Throw his ass under the bus as far as they can and prop up the next Democrat poster boy — or girl. (See: “Al Franken,” “Andrew Cuomo,” et al.)
Fox News host Tucker Carlson perfectly summed up the end of Joe’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad first year in a Monday op-ed, this way:
For Joe Biden the past few months amounted to the greatest political disaster of his life. In his case, that’s not a small place to be. This is a man with three failed presidential campaigns on his resume, but this year has been different.
We don’t mean to overstate it, but you can pick your humiliating ashes and sackcloth world-historic defeat, Stalingrad, Corregidor, Gallipoli and that is pretty much where Joe Biden is right now politically.
Amen, all things considered. The Biden Border Crisis, Biden Energy Crisis, Biden Afghanistan Debacle, Biden Supply Chain Disaster, Bidenomics Disaster, and Bidenflation Disaster — just to name Joe’s “greatest hits.” So far, anyway. Even worse: Every one of them was on purpose.
Yeah, Joe — you did that. Even though you were clueless, throughout.
“The media are the only reason Joe Biden is president and the first place,” Tucker also observed. “Biden didn’t campaign for the job, he didn’t hold rallies or give speeches or tell the public what he might do if elected.”
No, for nearly a year Joe Biden stayed home hiding in terror from infectious voters. Instead, he let news organizations make his case for him, which they did. The media hid Biden’s faults, they attacked and censored his critics.
In general, they gave no hint at all that you might be electing a senile mannequin with a lifelong history of sleazy behavior. Voters had no clue, they didn’t know who Joe Biden actually was.
And yet suddenly, news organizations have decided to tell them. It’s pretty amazing to watch it.
Exactly. If there was ever a political quid pro quo between a hapless presidential candidate and the left-wing media as blatantly obvious as that between the sock puppet media and Corn Pop’s pal, I am unaware of it. At least in the case of
Chicago Jesus Barack Obama, the elitist globalist had his wits about him.
Tucker provided multiple examples of mainstream media “journalists” now throwing Biden under the bus, including:
DON LEMON: President Biden left Washington tonight to spend the weekend at home in Delaware. He probably couldn’t wait to get out of town after one of the worst weeks of his year-old presidency.
CHUCK TODD, NBC: One year in, Mr. Biden has the second-lowest approval rating ever measured in the White House. And it has never been less popular nationally.
JOHN KING, CNN: The country is frustrated, his party is frustrated, we are two weeks into a midterm election year, a few days away from a one-year anniversary, and it is very dark for him right now.
ERIN BURNETT, CNN: Now he’s in the midst of what famous children’s book writer called “a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad” time.
DONNY DEUTSCH, MSNBC: Your audience is not going to be happy with what I have to say. I don’t think he’s come across as an inspirational figure.
Oops. It wasn’t supposed to be this way.
Mr. “Unity,” Joe “A Time to Heal” Biden was going to save America from the evil clutches of Big Bad Orange Man, certain “insurrection,” the end of democracy, and a slide into armageddon.
The bottom line.
“Joey from Scranton” spent nearly five decades as a U.S. senator, desperately trying to be relevant. Trying to the point of embellishing his past accomplishment (lying his ass off), plagiarizing political figures far more consequential than he would ever be, and unsuccessfully running for president three times — in 1988, 2008, and 2020.
When he finally made it, it was never about electing Joe Biden. Rather, it was about denying the Democrat nomination to a sworn socialist in Bernie Sanders and defeating Donald Trump at all costs.
Even “Dr.” Jill shamelessly propped up her mental-acuity-challenged husband, desperately seeking the limelight of the White House as well.
Mission accomplished for the Bidens. Or was it?
Finally, the so-called mainstream media begs to differ. And despite the disaster wrought by Biden’s presidency, there’s a bit of satisfaction in seeing the left media throw him under the bus — bigly.
