When the WaPo starts knocking Joe Biden, you know he is in trouble. In fact, a lot of Democrats have been ragging on Biden on several fronts.
Since taking office, Biden has created a lot of problems. There is inflation, gas prices, open borders, runaway spending, Afghanistan, and a dog that keeps biting secret service agents and others. Remember, this is just in less than 8 months in office. Imagine what crises he will create next.
Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen claimed Tuesday that Biden is focused on IDA relief. And why does he think that Biden is doing that? “He’s trying to focus on the storm because it’s the only disaster he didn’t create.” He went on to name the disasters he thinks that Biden created. They are the Southern border and Biden’s response to COVID.
He shouldn’t have stopped there. Inflation is reducing family income and his disastrous policies on energy are taking a big bite out of a family’s income. Before Biden took office, we were energy independent.
Now, we are about to return to buy energy from countries that hate us. His unwavering support of the Taliban is concerning since the Taliban is nothing but a group of radical terrorists. Not to mention the Taliban’s acceptance of Al Qaeda and ISIS.
Thiessen and former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany joined hostess Martha MacCallum on Fox News’s “The Story”. They were there to discuss Biden’s poll numbers which now sit at 39%. Even more discouraging for Biden is the fact that Democrats make up a huge difference. He is now slightly trailing jock it and yeast infections in popularity.
MacCallum introduced her guests and mentioned the ongoing efforts to get American citizens and Afghan allies out of Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, asking McEnany whether she thought the Biden administration would be able to steer the media away from that story and onto something that was more favorable for the president.
“No, they won’t be able to,” McEnany replied, saying that it was very telling to see officials refer to the Taliban as “Afghan partners.”
“He won’t be able to turn from this. He’s trying to distract us. You know it’s bad when he’s distracting us with inflation and a COVID resurgence. That’s what he’s trying to do,” McEnany continued. “They’re trying to flip the scripts but they will not be able to. Polling shows Americans care too much deeply about this.”
MacCallum turned the question to Thiessen, noting that Biden’s poll numbers had dropped off just since June.
“He’s trying to focus on the storm because it’s the only disaster he didn’t create. The southern border, he created. Afghanistan, he created. The COVID response, right now he’s creating. So of course, he wants to shift the blame,” Thiessen replied. “He’s not going to be able to shift the blame because of the subject — because Afghanistan is not going to cooperate.”
“Finally, Afghanistan is not going to cooperate, because one, we have hundreds of Americans — at least 100 Americans — and certainly thousands of American allies and permanent residents who are trapped behind enemy lines by the choice of the president. He ordered the last plane to leave knowing that they were left behind enemy lines,” Thiessen concluded. “Now they’re hiding and as he goes to Ground Zero to celebrate — or to mark the anniversary of 9/11 — while the bells are ringing at Ground Zero, they’re going to be hiding from Taliban death squads because of Joe Biden.”
