US media turn’s on Biden, accusing him of incompetence
Over the past month or so, mainstream media has overtly abandoned President Biden – the man they relentlessly shilled for during the 2020 election as the establishment went to extreme measures to unseat Donald Trump.
After months of gentile distancing, the media’s come-to-Jesus finally happened after the White House ‘botched’ the response to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade. CNN published an article last Wednesday titled: “After string of Supreme Court setbacks, Democrats wonder whether Biden White House is capable of urgency moment demands.”
“Top Democrats complain the President isn’t acting with — or perhaps is even capable of — the urgency the moment demands,” reads the piece.
Two dozen leading Democratic politicians and operatives, as well as several within the West Wing, tell CNN they feel this goes deeper than questions of ideology and posture. Instead, they say, it gets to questions of basic management.
The Post built on CNN’s article – slamming the White House’s “struggle to respond” to the abortion ruling, writing that “Many Democrats were dismayed by his slow-footed response.”
For many Democrats, however, it was too little and too late — just one more example over the two weeks in which Biden and his team struggled to come up with a muscular plan of action on abortion rights, even though the Supreme Court ruling had been presaged two months earlier with the leak of a draft opinion.
The New York Times straight-up suggested Biden is too old to govern – writing that his team ‘delayed his Middle East trip so the 79-year-old president would have more time to rest’ following last month’s Europe/NATO meetings.
Sure, the Post and The Atlantic have also run recent op-eds suggesting we “Give Biden a Break” and “Leave Joe Biden Alone,” but they boil down to ‘sure, things are bad, but they aren’t Biden’s fault.’
And as some have noticed, the same group that went to extraordinary lengths to deem President Trump mentally unfit are dead silent about Biden.
One has to wonder if the media is simply trying to get ahead of a disastrous run for reelection in 2024, or if they’re getting ready for GOP-led investigations into Hunter and crew if the Republicans take back Congress in this year’s midterm elections.
