When Biden gives public remarks, some White House staffers will either mute him or turn off his remarks, according to White House officials.It’s not that they’re indifferent to what their boss has to say. Indeed, their livelihoods are directly invested in it. Rather, they’re filled with anxiety that he’s going to take questions from the press and veer off the West Wing’s carefully orchestrated messaging.
“I know people who habitually don’t watch it live for that reason,” said one current official.
Biden’s advisers have urged him to answer fewer of the questions being shouted at him by reporters covering his events. While the president sometimes obliges and quickly leaves the podium after remarks, he has a tendency to buck those staffers trying to rein him in. “I’m not supposed to take any questions, but go ahead,” he said after addressing FEMA the other week.
So that’s why he says that: he’s being ordered not to answer questions by people who cannot bear to hear him stumble incoherently through “answers.”
It seems more and more of the country’s voters cannot bear to listen to Biden, either.
20% of Joe Biden voters now regret their vote.
A poll found that one-fifth of likely voters, and roughly one-fifth of Democrats, said they regretted their vote for President Joe Biden in 2020.The poll from Zogby Analytics of 2020 Biden voters found that 20% of likely voters said they regretted their choice, compared to 76% who did not. Among Democrats, the number was 21%, compared to 29% of Republicans who crossed the aisle to vote for Biden and regret it.
Whoa: I just saw this– an Economist/YouGov poll has Biden dropping under 40% approval, to 39%.
The nation’s patience for this doddering, diddling fossil is sundowning.
