It’s no secret the left-wing media abruptly lose interest in covering presidential gaffes when Democrats take the White House. Well, they’re doing it again: over the past few months liberal cable and broadcast news networks have utterly ignored a slew of mistakes and fumbles by President Biden.
At the G-7 Summit in June, Biden mistakenly referred to Syria as Libya three separate times during a speech. Aides later confirmed that he had, in fact, meant Syria. That same month, the President wrongly conflated the Tuskegee Airmen — a predominantly black contingent of World War II fighter pilots — with victims of the notorious Tuskegee syphilis experiment.
Both times, broadcast (ABC, CBS, and NBC) and cable (CNN and MSNBC) networks shrugged.
Last week brought yet another gaffe that these same channels ignored. While visiting a truck factory in Pennsylvania last Wednesday, Biden abruptly claimed: “I used to drive an 18-wheeler.” After some digging around, journalists concluded that no, no he didn’t. Once again, this received zero airtime from the aforementioned broadcast and cable outlets.
A rare few of the President’s recent fumbles have caused enough of a stir to require airtime from his lackeys in TV news. In these instances, the strategy has generally been to lamely excuse his behavior.
For example, when Biden claimed earlier this month that FaceBook was “killing people” by not doing more to combat COVID misinformation, CNN’s Jim Acosta hosted a bunch of former Democratic operatives to spin the event as a positive. “I thought it was terrific,” CNN commentator Paul Begala opined, adding, “It’s about time.”
Later, Begala’s fellow panelist, David Gergen added, “The President was right in what he said. It technically is true that people are being killed by disinformation.”
Obviously, none of these gaffes have massive political implications. But the gaffes aren’t the story here.
biden is not even a good joke. His mental issues endanger America.
His real poll numbers are in the mid 30’s. He is not liked by a majority of real Americans…
his numbers are not real..like Westmoreland’s numbers of VC deaths during Vietnam conflict. over inflated. a head of cabbage has a higher IQ than the pedophile, demented faux pres..Looked at the stock market over the last two week. sell of was huge-bloodbath
biden has no floor when it comes to polling data. Clinton obama and President Trump all had floors where the numbers would not go below. biden has no base, no constituency. He is not liked and a large majority of Americans know there is something wrong with the direction of the current regime.
President Trump won in a landslide on November 03, and everyone knows it…
Actually, the gaffes ARE the story. Or, A story, anyway. For, taken as a whole, they present a picture of a guy who cannot speak, cannot think, cannot form a coherent thought that is the purported president*. The corrupt liberal media might ignore his mental weakness but don’t think for a second our adversaries are. They take note and make their plans accordingly. The media simply does what it does; enable a failed ideology and prop up their own personal beliefs. It is dangerous and destructive, but you won’t find a leftist that gives a thought to any of that.
*He isn’t. To be President, you must win a legitimate election, not reach the White House through obvious fraud.
Biden is the worse candidate in history, and we saw a mile away that he was going to be installed rather than voted in by the People.
When he started winning primaries with zero followers and career-ending gaffes, that’s when we knew.
Biden is a Dictator.
He only started winning when the DNC started forcing other candidates out. Fraud from the git-go.
They always cover up for the Democrats their the Democrats Lap Dogs
