President Joe Biden had a 12 months to neglect, and that’s placing it mildly.
On nearly each entrance the brand new president failed. Take into account the next:
COVID-19? He simply pushed duty to individual states
Afghanistan? The scope of his withdrawal failures might be felt for years, if not many years
The economic system? Inflation is hovering to scary ranges
Construct Again Higher? His signature laws could by no means occur
The southern border? Chaos reigns supreme
Ballot numbers? How low can they go?
That’s only a partial checklist.
Enter Politico, a presumably impartial information website.
The information outlet uncorked a “Year in Review” song parody, with a wink and a nod to The Beatles. The takeaway? Biden’s terrible, horrible, no good 12 months is everybody’s fault save … the Commander in Chief himself.
The video have to be seen to be believed. Remember to click on the Closed Captioning swap on YouTube to totally course of simply how within the tank Politico’s parody is for Biden.
The brief, sung to the tune of The Beatles’ “With a Little Assist from My Mates,” trots out each excuse conceivable for Biden’s failures.
A divided nation
Trump, Trump, Trump
Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema
Who emerges unscathed? Biden. Why, he’s simply an harmless bystander bamboozled by his personal social gathering, a former president and, in fact, Fox Information.
Essentially the most unintentionally hilarious half? The parody suggests the media is simply too onerous on the Biden administration. Now, that’s comedy, besides it wasn’t meant to be humorous.
This sort of propaganda can be a comfortable match for, say, “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert. and even “Saturday Night time Dwell.” Each retailers do their finest to keep away from blaming Biden for, nicely, something.
The latter hits GOP targets a lot more durable than Biden, and it just about ignores Vice President Kamala Harris.
Seeing this sort of lopsided protection at Politico, although, suggests simply how biased the press is on the finish of 2021.
