It is unusual for a liberal comedian to criticize President Joe Biden, so when it does occur, it is newsworthy.
In the era of former President Donald Trump, late-night comedians no longer ridicule the President of the United States regardless of their party affiliation. But on Tuesday, the day President Joe Biden announced his reelection campaign at the age of 82, Jimmy Kimmel hilariously roasted “Grandpa Joe.”
“President Biden made it official he is running for president again. Said he’s running to battle for the soul of America. That’s a lot to battle for. Most people his age barely winning the battle against constipation but Grandpa Joe is back on the White House and doing 35 in the center lane with his blinker on,” he said before playing a montage video of some hilarious Biden clips as a spoof of his campaign video.
The video made light of the president’s age and tendency to murmur during press conferences.
“You know, he’s still virile and vital although if he wins he’ll be 82 when his second term starts. His face could be on money while he is still in office. What an election, Trump and Biden 76 and 80 years old. You know who else lets the oldest males run their society? Gorillas,” he said.
However, President Biden faces opposition for the Democratic nomination.
Several candidates have stepped forward to challenge President Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination in 2024, which is remarkable in and of itself given that incumbents typically run unopposed.
However, these are not ordinary times.
Biden, who is 80 years old, continues to exhibit signs of aging, and the United States faces a growing number of challenges, spanning from high inflation to foreign crises such as the war in Ukraine and a threatening China. The U.S. border is in disarray, interest rates are persistently high, and homelessness and crime plague our largest cities, all of which are governed by the president’s party.
As a culture war between the left and right rages, Americans are at each other’s throats, politically divided, and living in a racially fraught society.
Given the current condition of the nation and the administration of Vice President Joe Biden, it should come as no surprise that he is being challenged for his party’s nomination ahead of an election next year that an increasing number of Americans believe will determine the country’s future.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., whose family has a lengthy history in Democratic Party politics, even if it is a party from a different, less extreme era, is one of those challenging Biden.
Not only has RFK Jr. decided to run for president, but an exclusive USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll reveals that he has the support of 14% of voters who supported President Joe Biden in 2020.
“That is surprising strength for a candidate who has a famous political name but is now known mostly as the champion of a debunked conspiracy theory blaming childhood vaccines for autism,” USA Today snarked.
According to the survey conducted between Saturday and Tuesday, only 67 percent of those who supported Biden in 2020 intend to support him over his current competitors for the Democratic nomination.
