With the 2022 midterms right around the corner, the Democrats are desperately seeking to boost their approval rating as more and more polls show the GOP gaining significant ground in D.C. On top of the Democrats struggling, the White House has also found itself with its fair share of problems due to the Biden administration. Not only has President Joe Biden been hit with numerous dilemmas, from the Southern border crisis to soaring gas prices, but apparently, when it comes to his staff within the White House, it resembles much of the turmoil and chaos being seen in America right now. Although news outlets like MSNBC and CNN once promoted the Biden administration, it appears they are jumping ship as they both ran articles detailing the problems at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Astonished, like most, that some of Biden’s strongest supporters were running, Fox News’s Laura Ingraham, as can be seen in the video below, presented both articles from MSNBC and CNN. Take a look.
According to the piece by MSNBC, “Crises have piled up in ways that have at times made the Biden White House look flat-footed: record inflation, high gas prices, a rise in Covid case numbers — and now a Texas school massacre that is one more horrific reminder that he has been unable to get Congress to pass legislation to curb gun violence. Democratic leaders are at a loss about how he can revive his prospects by November, when midterm elections may cost his party control of Congress.”
The outlet added, “Biden is unhappy about a pattern that has developed inside the West Wing. He makes a clear and succinct statement — only to have aides rush to explain that he actually meant something else. The so-called clean-up campaign, he has told advisers, undermines him and smothers the authenticity that fueled his rise. Worse, it feeds a Republican talking point that he’s not fully in command.”
Also noticing the drastic shift from the media, another Fox News host, Tucker Carlson, discussed the change in perspective, noting that it had little to do with facts and more with self-preservation, “Joe Biden’s friends in the media, the ones who got him elected have figured out we can’t stick with this guy. He’s going to discredit us. So they have whipped around on Joe Biden, and they’re attacking him.”
Not forgetting about CNN, Senior Data Reporter Harry Enten presented the current gas prices that many Americans were paying at the pump. Not being able to hide it, he noted, “And you might be asking yourself, okay, how is this impacting President Joe Biden? Look at his job performance on gas prices. You don’t have to be a mathematical expert to know that 31% is a very, very bad number. The vast majority, more than two-thirds of Americans disapprove of Joe Biden’s job on gas prices.”
Enten concluded, “Two-thirds of Americans disapprove of Joe Biden’s job performance on inflation. And you know, that is a very, very, very, very, very bad number when what is the most urgent issue facing Americans? Look at that inflation, 33%. That clear runaway there is three times as many folks who said abortion. And you might have remembered immigration was something that Republicans were going to want to hit on in this midterm election, but just 7% say that they’re much wiser, refocusing on inflation. If you watch Republican messaging, they’re exactly doing that.”
