Biden shredded from both sides after ‘week from hell’ as media declares ‘it is very dark for him right now’

After a week of hell, President Biden was vilified by media. Both sides have condemned the White House’s “very large losing streak” to start 2022. 

Biden made a speech this week on his campaign to pass Democratic voting legislations. However, the Supreme Court rescinded his order to large employers to vacinate and test workers. Democratic Senators. Joe Manchin, W. Va., and Kyrsten Sinema, Ariz., announced they wouldn’t vote to eliminate or weaken the filibuster despite the president urging them to do so. 

“The Senate was unable to overcome the resistance by Manchin when the Commander-in-Chief came to them for one final push on the rules change. [Sinema]Politico highlighted this fact.

In addition to the fizzling legislation and court defeat, polling shows the public’s approval of Biden’s job performance continues to crater as COVID surges despite his promise to “shut down” coronavirus – and the media has taken notice of the president’s struggles. 

CNN’s Brianna Keilar spoke Friday after the network ran a graphic that labeled it a “week from hell” for the president. 

Keilar stated that Biden had had a difficult week, with setbacks in his plans, COVID complications and the Supreme Court blocking him from getting his vaccine mandate. He also mentioned inflation and global turmoil.  

CNN’s John Berman then admitted the president is “on a very big losing streak,” and the liberal network’s chief national correspondent John King agreed.

“I’m reminded of an old saying, John McCain used to mangle this quote from Chairman Mao, he used to say, ‘It’s darkest before it turns completely black.’ That’s where Joe Biden is right now,” King said Friday. “Schools are closing, people around the country have COVID exhaustion, here in Washington the president is disappointing his own base … It is black. Right now, it is dark. 

CNN also aired an on-screen chyron, “BIDEN’S REALLY BAD WEEK: SETBACKS ON VOTING RIGHTS, COVID, ECONOMY,” on Friday morning. 

Nellie Bowles, journalist and writer called it a “pretty tough week for Biden”, and rattled off a laundry list for her newsletter of all the debacles that the president has been through. 

“The Supreme Court blocked his vaccine mandate effort. His approval rating dropped to 33%. Krysten Simena, the moderate Democratic senator from Arizona, said she will not support changing the filibuster rules. Without changing filibuster rules, Democrats have little chance of passing their voting rights bills,” Bowles wrote on Bari Weiss’ Substack, noting that Vice President Kamala Harris didn’t have the best week, either.

“Hasn’t been a good season for Biden’s powers of persuasion. He couldn’t convince the Senate to pass Build Back Better or voting rights, the Supreme Court to sign off on his vaccine plan or the Russians to back off Ukraine,” New York Times reporter Peter Baker Tweet Thursday. What will Plan B look like?

President Biden failed to convince Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema to eliminate or weaken the filibuster.

Axios published a piece titled, “Biden’s epic failures,” which called out “baffling COVID messaging,” his “failed” trip to the Hill this week, and the challenge of feuding with both parties in an election year. 

“In the two months since signing the $1 trillion infrastructure bill into law, President Biden has by almost every measure bombed big time on the things that matter most,” Axios’ Mike Allen and Jim VandeHei wrote. “It’s rare for a president to be at odds with Republicans, moderate Democrats and liberal Democrats — all at once. Biden’s situation is atypical at the start an election year, which many Democrats predict will end in the Senate and the House.

CNN’s website featured a Friday headline, “Inflation, vaccines, voting rights: Biden faces brick walls.”

An analysis by the Associated Press concluded that Biden overpromised his campaign promise of getting things done.

“Days before he hits his one-year mark in office, a torrent of bad news is gnawing at the foundational rationale of President Joe Biden’s presidency: that he could get the job done,” the AP wrote Friday.

Biden’s “race-baiting comments” during Tuesday’s controversial speech in Georgia regarding Democrats’ voting rights legislations led to the end of a devastating week. The president asked a crowd in Atlanta on Tuesday whether they were on the side of reviled figures like segregationist Gov. George Wallace and Jefferson Davis Confederate President, respectively.

New York Post columnist John Podhoretz penned a scathing piece about the “hypocritical, demagogic” speech, while Greg Gutfeld said he was “splitting the country in half with divisive, earsplitting rhetoric.” 

Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan wrote in a piece headlined, “Biden’s Georgia Speech is a Break Point,” that while attempting to appeal to his base, he might have united the rest of the country against him. 

“The speech, by its very nature, was aggressive and intemperate. It seemed prepared by people who think there is only the Democratic Party in America, that’s it, everyone else is an outsider who can be disparaged. Noonan said that it was an error on many levels. 

“By the final, he appeared to be operating independently from American conversation and not at its core.” She added that this can prove fatal for a presidency. He was hurt this week in Georgia. They strengthened and might have even taken an important step towards unifying the non-Democrats, who are their countrymen and are actually the majority.

Biden was also given the harshest fact-check rating by the Washington Post, which is “Four Pinocchios” because he claimed that he was “arrested,” as a teenager at a Delaware civil rights demonstration. 

In a Thursday piece headlined, “Biden claims yet another arrest for which there’s little evidence,” Glenn Kessler, the Post’s resident fact-checker, wrote that Biden was “not always a reliable source” when it came to his “exaggerated” stories, and that too many elements of his claim didn’t add up.

The president’s approval rating stands at just 33% and disapproval at 53% among Americans in a Quinnipiac University national poll conducted Jan. 7-10 and released Wednesday. Biden’s approval is down three points from Quinnipiac’s previous survey, which was conducted in November, with disapproval remaining unchanged.

According to the Quinnipiac poll, the president is deeply underwater on his handling of three top issues – the economy (34%), foreign policy (35%), and the coronavirus pandemic (39%).

Meanwhile, Harris was compared to fictional buffoons such as Steve Carell’s Michael Scott from “The Office” and Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Selina Meyer from “Veep” when confronted over former administration health officials urging Biden to change his pandemic strategy. 

“It’s time for us to do what we have been doing, and that time is every day,” Harris told NBC News’ Craig Melvin.
