The old media is finally starting to run poignant articles in the palace about the faltering Biden White House.
It’s damn time.
Four years after hearing about the supposed chaos that has permeated the Trump administration, reporters have dealt with Biden’s move to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. a little differently.
When the 46th president took office, the blown-up pieces were comical.
Last October, the New York Times described Biden as a man “obsessed with getting the details right” with little patience for advisers who were unable to “answer his many questions.”
Eight months and countless misfortunes after that, not even the most blithe-Democrat fan of the press couldn’t spread that kind of gossip.
Biden’s idea of a Socrates statesman went from questionable to ludicrous. Now media outlets have focused on a topic they’ve been doing their best to avoid for years: the truth.
This week, NBC News published an article titled “Inside the Biden White House.” He described administrative breakdowns in the administration and infighting between democratic factions (left, far left and even left).
Amid all the dysfunction, a frustrated — and grumbling — Joe Biden wanders.
More than two dozen current and former administration officials, lawmakers and congressional aides spoke to NBC on the condition of anonymity.
According to these sources, Biden is “baffled” and “really quirky” about the fact that his popularity rating is lower than Trump’s.
He is also “unhappy” that aides are rushing to remove his mistakes and that there aren’t enough Democrats defending him on television.
Biden is “frustrated” that he can’t get a break from the ongoing problems (most of which he created). He is “disturbed” because he “was not alerted sooner about the lack of infant formula.”
If it makes Joe feel better, I think most Americans are as discontented with his presidency as it is.
On the same day that NBC’s uncomfortable news broke, Politico detailed the exodus of black staff members from the White House. According to the employees of color who have not yet fled, the driving forces behind the departures are “a work environment with little support from their superiors and fewer opportunities for promotion.”
Later in the week, CNN published an article titled “Under Biden’s Struggle for Hacking Is a Deeper Flaw among White House Aid.” She described the president’s attempts to address the country’s proliferating problems at a time when he was also “the most resilient, happiest, most sympathetic, loving, inspiring man to parody onions, wears a pilot, and licks vanilla chips – an image that was the crux of the reason he was elected in Primarily “.
The fact that the image of an old man licking an ice cream cone and wearing sunglasses was the “core” of why so many Americans voted for him — well, I guess CNN inadvertently explained why the country is in what it is today. It’s called Dumbing Down of America.
But people wake up. Going broken concentrates the mind wonderfully.
The public wants to know what is happening behind closed doors at Casa de Grampa. If Biden and his staff are inept in front of the cameras, it’s hard to understand how dazed and confusing things must have been behind the scenes. Which is why Joe’s therapists are intent on keeping Charlie Foxtrot’s inner workings a secret.
Take the deficiency in infant formula.
This week, NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell questioned press secretary Karen-Jean-Pierre about an administrative official who briefed the president on the shortage. It should have been an easy question for Jean-Pierre.
But Jin Psaki’s successor said, “There are regular channels that happen to go to the president.”
O’Donnell said the administration’s refusal to answer the question appeared evasive and that reporters were trying to “understand the flow of information in this White House.”
Picking up where O’Donnell left off, CBS reporter Ed O’Keefe tried to get a clear answer about the confusing timeline of the shortage.
O’Keefe asked if Biden had been told about the shortage in late April, to which Jean-Pierre replied, “Well, he said – in late April – right? – and that…”
Corrected by O’Keefe: “He said in early April.”
Visibly confused Jean-Pierre stuttered, “In – in April. I’m sorry. In April. All right. In – in early April,” he said in April – in early April.
An administration promising “the highest standards of transparency” has shifted from refusing to release visitor records at Biden’s frequently visited mansion in Delaware to striving to answer reporters’ basic questions.
These liberal outlets began covering the collapse of the Biden presidency, not because they wanted to, but because the undeniable failures of the cone president left them no choice.
The emperor has no clothes, and state-run media clerks are reporting it — as they did with Hunter Biden’s laptop, the effectiveness of masks and Hillary Clinton’s multiple FBI-enabled Russian hoaxes — two years later.
