As we previously reported, President Joe Biden had a terrible week last week, the vast majority of which he brought on himself not only thanks to his inability to bring his own party together but also because he exposed himself to a cross-section of voters across the country for who he truly is in that bitter, racially divisive speech he gave in Georgia.
And while this week is not off to a promising start for Biden either, it’s important to try and put all of this in perspective going into the 2022 midterms – with that perspective being that Joe Biden’s entire first year has been a dumpster fire of epic proportions, something that is reflected in his plummeting poll numbers.
I could list them out for you here, but it wouldn’t be nearly as entertaining as listening to Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) do a rundown of the top Joe Biden failures during a recent interview he did with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
“The Biden administration has mismanaged COVID, it has mismanaged inflation, it has mismanaged the border, and it has mismanaged foreign policy – all in one year,” he stated during a discussion with Hannity about Biden’s mismanagement of numerous crises over the last 12 months.
“If aliens landed tomorrow and said, ‘take me to your leader,’ it would be embarrassing,” Kennedy, who is famous for uttering such humourous quips during interviews, went on to say.

Though listening to Kennedy give off his famous one-liners never gets old, it’s when he lays everything all out on the line that he’s really worth listening to, which is what he did immediately after his “alien” quip.
In his remarks, he talked about Biden’s Georgia speech and its heavy emphasis on race. Understandably, Kennedy took issue with it for reasons that I think resonate with most Americans, no matter their skin color:
“Now President Biden is trying to change the subject by talking about race, and he is mismanaging that. America is not perfect. Americans know that. But they also know that we are good. Black lives have mattered to most Americans for a long time. That’s why we passed civil rights laws in 1866, 1871, 1875, 1960, 1964, 1968, 1990, and 1991. That’s why we elected an African-American president twice. That’s why we have over 10,000 elected public officials in this country who happen to be black. And President Biden is wrong to say that tens of millions of Americans are racist because they don’t support his woke agenda.”
“The truth is most Americans don’t think that much about race. They think about character. They understand that souls have no color. Most Americans understand that to a bear, we all taste like chicken. And I’m very proud of the racial progress that we’ve made in America, and President Biden should be, too.”

Though Kennedy has been challenged by two Democrats for his Senate seat this year, it’s hard to believe a Louisianans wouldn’t elect him to another term. He’s truly a national treasure, not just because he has a way with words but also because he’s an endless font of wisdom at a time in this country when such things are in short supply.
