President Joe Biden’s town hall Thursday night on CNN – the third he’s done with Democrat apologist network in a year’s time – was an undeniable train wreck of a display, with Biden at times weirdly whispering some of his answers, making a demonstrably false claim about a “border visit” that never happened, and then quite literally mocking the concept of freedom at another point during the invitation-only (media code for “highly scripted”) event.
It was also embarrassing to note that his notorious behind the scenes handlers fact-checked him during the town hall. As evidenced by Twitters of reporters noting questionable clarifications and corrections made from White House representatives (frantic, anonymous),
Total cluster, no question about it.
I bring up all this because the post-town hall TV ratings have just been released, and it occurred to me in reading about them what they unintentionally confirmed about the Biden administration for reasons I’ll get to in just a moment:
Biden rescued CNN for one night only after the network suffered a staggering *26 days* w/o any program averaging 1 mil viewers.
The town hall averaged just 1.2 mil viewers, trailing behind regular programming on Fox News/MSNBC during the same timeframe.https://t.co/ZAjJFj5Jw6

That CNN is the only thing Biden has been able to successfully “rescue” (albeit temporarily for one night, much in the same way an escort, ahem, “rescues” her client) since he took office in January indeed reveals an absolutely shameful and sobering commentary on this administration.
First, let’s start with considering what kind of paltry “rescue” this was. Fox News reporter Wulfsohn pointed out (if you look between the lines), that even though Biden gave CNN its best figures in almost a month, it still remained a paltry “rescue”. SadlyHe was often behind other programming on competing cable news channels. It isn’t supposed to be this for debate and town hall broadcasts that feature the President of the United States.
So even in “rescuing” CNN for a night, Biden can’t even get ThisRight.
Think about his other failures to date in regard to matters beyond this:
– He hasn’t rescued the economy; in fact, he’s undone much of the progress that was made under the Trump administration, with people leaving the workforce in record numbers for a variety of reasons, among them being scared sh**less by the fearmongering coming from Democrats including Biden. There’s also the inconvenient matter of inflation, the numbers of which are staggering for the so-called “recovery” President.
– He hasn’t rescued the country from the pandemic; instead he’s divided it with dictatorial coronavirus vaccine mandates while practically flashing his middle finger at those who do not comply, and then turning around and insulting our intelligence when he doesn’t follow the rules he sets for others.
– He hasn’t rescued every American who wants to be rescued from Afghanistan, something he promised would happen by August 31st. Further, we’ve recently learned that the administration lied about the numbers of stranded Americans left in the country. False narratives about the “most successful rescue effort ever” must be maintained, of course.
– He hasn’t rescued the southern border; he actually made it worse even before he was sworn in with comments made during the presidential campaign that were the equivalent of him placing a giant “Welcome” billboard at the Texas/Mexico border that read “our doors are wide open.” Worse, he put Vice President Kamala Harris in charge of the border crisis, and we all see the results of that terrible decision.
It’s possible to go on but this is enough.
Joe Biden is a terrible failure in trying to rescue this country. Unfortunately, his failures are mostly self-inflicted. The American people bear the brunt. You can’t rely on snobbish wokesters or shadowy co-presidents to show you the way. Instead of manning up and drawing your own conclusions, you have to make decisions that are based on all facts.
One final thing: Just how does a good President “rescue” his country? It’s not through issuing unprecedented numbers of executive orders or by directing his departments to rule over peasants like a king. A good President rescues his country by working with Congress to help set the conditions and tweak the framework that will help grease the wheels that help America churn and individuals to chart their own course – and then He gets his way
Tucker Carlson was spot-on earlier this week when he suggested frustrated Americans “lower their expectations” – because this is Joe Biden’s America.
The 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential election cannot come soon enough, as far as I’m concerned, because the rescue America really needs right now is a rescuing from Joe Biden.
