Biden Neglects Presidential Duty to Tweet and Post Flattering Videos of Himself

Joe Biden has only been President for one week, but already the radical conservative scolds at Fox News and other right-wing lie factories are hounding him for not having solved all of the country’s problems. After all, they are merely minor difficulties like a deadly pandemic, a cratering economy, and a seditious horde of Trump deadenders trying to overthrow the American democracy.

Joe Biden, Tweet

Perhaps that’s why the Biden administration’s press office has articulated a criteria for media access to the White House that, if strictly applied, would prohibit Fox News, the former Ministry of Propaganda for Trump and Company. Over at Fox they continue to tow the Trumpian lies. They recently defended the rights of QAnon crackpots to believe that Democrats are sex-trafficking baby eaters. They denied that there was a post-holiday COVID surge. They appear to be determined to incite more violent Trump riots. And all the while they are steering their programming to ever more noxious conspiracy loving hosts.

In the week that Biden has served so far, he has aggressively moved to undo the worst of Trump’s atrocities on consequential matters such CIVID-19, climate change, healthcare, immigration and much more. But the oblivious cult disciples of the Trump/Republican Purity Party, in a rush to misjudgment, have deemed him an utter failure. As evidence of Biden’s bungling of the job, he has posted a measly average of 6.7 tweets a day. Trump pounded out more than 38 tweets daily on average. Some days he exceeded a hundred. What’s more, Biden has not posted a single video clip of some TV pundit delivering a slobbering dose of flattery. He has no equivalent of suck-ups like Sean Hannity, Jeanine Pirro, Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, or the “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends.

Biden has not called into one television program hosted by a shameless sycophant the whole week. Consequently, we have no videos of him rambling incoherently for forty minutes without ever making an intelligible point. Considering that the nation just spent a year watching a seemingly endless parade of such blather, the sudden shift to experience, compassion, and intelligence is rather jarring.

WTF is Biden doing instead of these critical presidential duties? He certainly isn’t golfing, like a responsible president would be. It’s downright depressing seeing how far the country has succumbed to the siren call of competency in just one week.

And as for Fox News, it’s rather bizarre that they are responding to these presidential deficiencies by doubling down on crazy. Their ratings have taken a brutal hit ever since the November 3rd election. In the meantime, CNN and MSNBC have been enjoying record setting gains:

Fox is obviously concerned about their declining status. For the first time in twenty years they are not the number one cable news network. They aren’t number two either. And they have apparently concluded that they are losing viewers to upstart wingnets Newsmax and OANN. The problem with that, however, is that those other channels have not gained nearly as many viewers as Fox has lost. So Fox’s audience is either going somewhere else, or turning off the television.

What this means is that Fox’s reaction to the ratings turmoil is all wrong. They are trying to emulate Newsmax and OANN, the losers in the ratings race, rather than CNN and MSNBC, far and away the ratings leaders. But if they stole back all of the viewers that Newsmax and OANN gained, Fox would still be in third place. The only rational business plan under the circumstances would be for Fox News to adopt a more progressive editorial policy and hire some liberal hosts.

But don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen. The hospitals are too full of COVID patients to treat your asphyxiation. We can expect Fox to persist on a path toward wackier wingnuttery for the foreseeable future. It is baked into their mission statement as a disinformation enterprise. And spreading the lies and hostility of the rancid right is their paramount duty. It takes priority even over profits.

  1. “…spreading the lies and hostility of the rancid right is their paramount duty.”…
    (Re: FauxNews)

    The “Lies & hostility” of the rancid right… These things are the problem. Because of those lies, repeated ad nauseum since Nov. 3rd by Trump, many of his GOP cohorts & FauxNews ~ simmering hostilities erupted & quickly boiled over, as a huge mob of angry & armed “Trumpees”, swarmed the Capitol bldg & smashed their way in, attacking police & looking to harm members of Congress & VP Pence ~ Congress had to scramble for their lives! The mob’s directive from Trump, at rally just before marching to Capitol, was to stop Congress from certifying electoral vote count for Biden/Harris & so, overturn our democratic election results & instead, put Trump back in Wht. House!

    The BIG LIE that Trump really won election & voter fraud had “stolen” it from him, was simply a lie from sore loser! No evidence to support his lies & he asked/got votes recounted by hand, with same results. Courts threw out Trump’s (60) lawsuits, due to lack of any evidence to present to the Court. That should have been the end of his lies. “No fraud. Now go home.”
    Had Trump, GOP accomplices & FauxNotNews, STOPPED LYING about non-existent election fraud that they knew did not happen & simply said, “No evidence of fraud was found… So, for the good of our nation, it’s time to wrap this up & move on now.”
    *It’s true & correct.
    *Respectable.
    *It’s mature, adult way to handle it.
    So of course, Donnie + his GOP + FauxNews, would never do it like that!
    Instead, they ramped-up their constant lies about election fraud & how “Trump really won”. “Dems stole election from me ya’ know.” (Playing that angry victim card.)
    It was all that lying & hostility, led to the bloodshed on Jan. 6th. Trump invited them & provided free buses to get ’em there…(Come to DC on Jan 6th — Will be wild!!)… well-armed militia types, racists, & etc. He worked them into a wild frenzy at rally, then Trump sent ’em marching down to the Capitol, ‘on a mission’…a violent attempt to overturn our elections/gov’t & put in Trump! He told them they were ‘patriots’, ‘heroes’… &…You have to fight hard, or you won’t have a Country!
    {They left for Capitol bldg, knowing what they were being sent to do. Trump hurried home to watch it with glee, on his TV.}

    Trump planned this whole thing, sent for his “army” & bussed ’em to DC. Trump, Mo Brooks + others whipped the crowd into an angry frenzy; a mob on a mission for the Prez.
    (People were killed & injured that day.)
    Trump planned it & incited the crowd to anger & false patriotism. But the reason for that violent attack — & likely to be more yet to come — is the fault of more than just Trump. He is #1 person who incited the riot & bloodshed on Jan.6th

    Months of nonstop lies about “stolen election”, by Trump & friends, building up pressure & anger. But, this entire thing based on nothin’ but lies. A ton of lies, on never-ending loop! Trump’s glassy-eyed cult doesn’t watch, or read, any other info sources but FauxNews, so isn’t like they will stumble upon the truth. They have been played for fools by Trump. But, they still believe every word he says.

    We now have 1,000’s of Trump worshippers, angry cuz’ they believe that the election was stolen from Donnie-boy by Dems & fraud. We thinking folks, know that’s a lie! GOP Members also know that’s a lie! Evidence everywhere that it’s all a Big Fat Lie! The only way that Trump-thumpers have/had a chance to ever know the truth, would’ve been if his GOP supporters in Congress had spoken up during that brief time when they were still in shock about mob riot at Capitol & were rightfully ticked off about it. Now, all are back sucking up to Trump, “no impeach”, acting as if nothing even happened!

    Every member of GOP & Congress who knows the truth about the elections (all of you do!) & does not say it out loud is guilty & partly responsible for Jan. 6th & any/all attacks in future! Very few that Trump’s crazy cult would believe. GOP pals are one of them.
    Those who repeat the lies are as bad as orange liar who started this mess! That includes you, FauxNews! Faux amplifies & broadcasts all those lies, to everywhere else. Guilty!!!
    So, all of you who remain silent when you know the truth & you say nothing….Guilty!
    All of you who think it’s harmless to tell lies &/or cover-up for lies of others.
    All who put politics before Country, Constitution, Oath of Office…Guilty!

  2. It would be fitting to have Fox collapse in the wake of Trump’s humongous fat ass!
