    President Joe Biden got caught calling Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a bitch” over a question about inflation on Monday. The hot mic occurred during a White House press conference Monday afternoon when Peter Doocy asked the president if rising inflation will severely hurt the Democrats in the coming mid-terms. “Do you think inflation is a political liability in the mid-terms?” Doocy asked the president. “It’s a great asset,” the president sarcastically responded. “More inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch.” .@JoeBiden doesnt like it when reporters ask about inflation: "What a stupid son of a bitch." pic.twitter.com/tF2oIogVvZ — Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) January 24, 2022 Doocy laughed it off shortly after the exchange during an appearance on Fox News: Doocy laughs it off."Nobody has fact checked him yet and says its not true." pic.twitter.com/KXeDXjDil6 — Alex Thompson (@AlexThomp) January 24, 2022 While inflation might seem like an obvious political liability for the coming mid-terms, the Democrats have not exactly framed it that way in recent months, often characterizing the issue as a rich people problem...

    President Joe Biden didn’t take too kindly to a shouted question by Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy on Monday, calling the reporter a “stupid son of a bitch” for asking him about inflation. Ahead of a Monday afternoon meeting with members of his administration on efforts to lower prices for working families, the president briefly addressed members of the White House press corps. As the reporters were ushered out of the room following the president’s public comments, a number of them lobbed a series of questions at Biden—including Doocy, who has carved out a niche for himself as a media foil of the administration. The Fox News correspondent shouted out, asking if the president was worried that rising inflation had become a political liability. Biden, muttering loudly enough to be caught by microphones, replied: “That's a great asset—more inflation. What a stupid son of a bitch!” Moments later, Doocy found himself talking about the president insulting him on one of cable television’s most-watched programs—Fox News’ late-afternoon opinion show The Five. While co-host Dana Perino said the president should...
    Brandon can’t catch a break. Another vaccine mandate was defeated in court, Ukraine is heating up (Don’t worry, Tony Blinken is on the case), and the southern border continues to go from bad to worse. All of this is happening under the watchful eye of President Biden. Our guest today is Jessica Vaughan, the director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, who discusses Biden’s failed border policy, a proposal to provide American taxpayer-funded legal services to illegal aliens, and Vice President Kamala Harris’ comment that amnesty is still on the table this year.

    Only 19 percent of likely voters strongly approve of President Joe Biden’s performance, down three points in two weeks, a Monday Rasmussen poll revealed. After Biden’s two-hour press conference last week in which he was questioned why 49 percent of voters believe he is mentally unfit to be president, 49 percent also strongly disapproved of Biden’s presidential performance, a 30 point differential. Overall, 40 percent of respondents told Rasmussen they approve of Biden’s job performance. Fifty-nine percent said they disapprove, a 19 point differential. For perspective, before the deadly Afghanistan withdrawal on August 9, 49 percent approved of Biden and 49 percent disapproved. Among those, twenty-nine percent strongly approved and 42 percent strongly disapproved of Biden. Biden’s sinking poll numbers come as 40-year high inflation has taken hold, the supply chain crisis has continued, and the coronavirus has continued to damage the labor market.

    President Joe Biden has a net approval rating in the negatives one year into his presidency, an RMG Research/Scott Rasmussen survey released Monday found.  The latest results show 52 percent disapproving of Biden’s job performance compared to 42 percent who approve, resulting in a net negative of -10 percent. That is worse than the results seen January 13-15, where 50 percent approved and 44 percent approved, resulting in a net negative of -6 percent.  Of the 52 percent disapproving of Biden’s job performance, 38 percent do so “strongly.” The survey, taken January 18-19, 2022, among 1,200 registered voters, has a margin of error of +/- 2.8 percent.  The survey comes as Biden continues to struggle on a range of promises one year into his presidency. Perhaps most significantly, Biden has failed to crush the Chinese coronavirus, despite making promises to do so. While he also said he would not impose vaccine mandates, he attempted to force them on millions of American workers. However, the Supreme Court this month struck down his attempt through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). That...
    President Joe Biden and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D) are underwater with likely Michigan voters months ahead of the 2022 election, where the governor is running for reelection and the president’s failed agenda items in Washington will be put to the test with voters. The poll, first reported by ABC12 News, showed that only 32 percent of likely Michigan voters have a positive view of Biden’s job as president. In comparison, an overwhelming majority (66 percent) gave the president a negative review of his job performance. Included in those numbers are 44 percent who said Biden is doing a “poor job” and 22 percent who said the president is “just fair.” Biden, who has now been in office for over a year, has been plagued with bad poll numbers for months after dealing with the consequences of poor decision-making, such as a supply chain crisis, record-high inflation, and the botched Afghanistan withdrawal. The respondents also gave a poor review to Whitmer, who is up for reelection. Only 45 percent of the respondents said they have a positive view of Whitmer, while a majority (52 percent) viewed the governor negatively. Three percent said they...
    Alveda King, niece of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr, said this weekend President Joe Biden is stoking racial tensions by opposing voter ID laws. On Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Biden warned of “a true attack on our democracy, from the Jan. 6 insurrection to the onslaught of Republican anti-voting laws in a number of states,” referring to state laws requiring voter ID or barring mass mailing of absentee ballots. “It’s no longer just about who gets to vote. It’s about who gets to count the vote. And whether your vote counts at all. It’s about two insidious things: voter suppression and election subversion,” Biden said. Biden also evoked the memory of Rev. King in his push for the removal of restrictions on voting. “It’s not just enough to praise him, we must commit to his unfinished work to deliver jobs and justice, to protect the sacred right to vote, the right from which all other rights flow,” Biden said of King. King’s niece said Saturday, however, that Biden’s anti-voter ID rhetoric is fueling rather than quelling racial tensions. U.S....
    Former Trump aide Sam Nunberg believes that President Joe Biden essentially gave Vladimir Putin the green light to invade Ukraine because the Ukrainian energy company Burisma stopped bribing him after the 2016 election of former President Donald Trump. Speaking with politics editor Matthew Boyle on Breitbart News Saturday, Nunberg expanded on a tweet he posted Friday suggesting that Biden abandoned Ukraine due to Hunter Biden’s corruption. Why is everyone surprised that Brandon @JoeBiden is welcoming Russia into Ukraine?! Ukraine didn’t pay enough protection money to the highly skilled and competent Hunter Biden and the rest of the Robinette Syndicate. — Sam Nunberg (@NunbergSam) January 21, 2022 “Hunter Biden was paid by Burisma $80,000 a month to simply sit on the board,” Nunberg told Boyle. “Fortune 500 companies don’t pay $80,000 a month to board members. They were under an investigation by an investigator who was really someone non-corruptible about all these bribery deals that Burisma was doing.” “And you know Joe Biden says and takes credit for getting, as VP, that investigator fired in return for a loan from the...
    Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” accused Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) of working with the Republicans to “sabotage” President Joe Biden’s agenda. Anchor Dana Bash said, “We are one year into the Biden presidency. Those two key priorities are stalled in the Senate because Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema won’t get on board. How frustrated are you?” Sanders said, “It’s not only those two. It’s 50 Republicans who have been adamant, not only in pushing an anti-democratic agenda, but also opposing our efforts to try to lower the cost of prescription drugs, to expand medicare to include dental, hearing and eyeglasses, to improve the disastrous situation in-home health care, in child care, to address the existential threat of climate change. You have 50 republicans who don’t want to do anything except criticize the president. You have, sadly enough, two Democrats who choose to work with the Republicans rather than the president and who have sabotaged the president’s efforts to address the needs of working families in this country. Is it...
    During an interview on "Fox & Friends Weekend," Fox News contributor and former acting ICE director Tom Homan slammed the Biden administration for their destructive and inhumane policies at the southern border after Texas Department of Public Safety officer Anthony Salas died in a U.S. Border Patrol incident this weekend. TEXAS DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY OFFICER DIES IN BORDER INCIDENT TOM HOMAN: Prayers out to Special Agent Salas and his family, it's always tragic to lose one of the finest. But look, I've said it many times before: people want to beat up on President Trump, but his [Biden's] immigration policies are inhumane. Let me be clear when President Trump pushed illegal immigration to a 35, 40 year low, depending on how much you look at illegal immigration… it was down 83%. That saves lives because the most vulnerable people will not make that journey if they know they won't succeed. … And Joe Biden comes in office, destroys all his policies. And what's the result? Under President Trump last year, there was a total of 254 migrants died crossing that...
    The Twitter storm caused Knight to move in with her mother for five days due to fear and anxiety related to the mean tweets. The story argued that Rodgers’ response to Knight’s criticism was "the perfect example of one of the most popular plays that men run on the internet: If facing a sea of criticism, find one woman among your critics, singler her out, then let your followers take it from there." Aaron Rodgers is a despicable, sexist pig. That was the preamble before ESPN finally quoted the unvaccinated quarterback trashing Joe Biden. "When the president of the United States says, ‘This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,’ it's because him and his constituents, which, I don’t know how there are any if you watch any of his attempts at public speaking, but I guess he got 81 million votes," Rodgers said during a 28-minute phone interview with the ESPN reporter. "But when you say stuff like that, and then you have the CDC, which, how do you even trust them, but then they come out and talk about...
    Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2024 rematch, a McLaughlin & Associates survey released this week found. The survey, which found 81 percent of Republican primary voters indicating that they would support Trump for the Republican nomination, asked respondents across the board, “If the 2024 Presidential election were held today, which one of the following best describes how you would vote in the general election for President between Donald Trump, the Republican candidate, and Joe Biden, the Democrat candidate, for whom would you vote?” According to the survey, 49 percent say they would vote for Trump compared to 44 percent who said Biden. Of those who said they would support Trump, 37 percent said they “definitely” would, while 35 percent said the same for Biden. Seven percent, overall, remain undecided, which is larger than Trump’s 5-point lead.  Trump takes an even greater lead when Biden is replaced with Vice President Kamala Harris, leading her 51 percent to 40 percent. Notably, the survey asked the same question with a potential rematch for Trump and Hillary Clinton. In...
    President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris claimed in a statement Saturday that state restrictions on abortion hurt communities of color. “These state restrictions constrain the freedom of all women,” the president and vice president wrote in a joint statement. “And they are particularly devastating for those who have fewer options and fewer resources, such as those in underserved communities, including communities of color and many in rural areas.” Biden and Harris celebrated the 49th anniversary of Roe v. Wade after tens of thousands of pro-life Americans protested abortion in Washington, DC, during the March for Life on Friday. “We must ensure that our daughters and granddaughters have the same fundamental rights that their mothers and grandmothers fought for and won on this day, 49 years ago,” they wrote. They condemned state restrictions on abortion such as those in Texas and Mississippi that ban abortion after six weeks. “The continued defense of this constitutional right is essential to our health, safety, and progress as a nation,” the president and vice president wrote. They repeatedly defended the right to abortion,...
    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said that if President Joe Biden wants to work with Republicans, he can work with Republicans to sanction Russia for its buildup against Ukraine. Graham said, “I mean, the news conference was a disaster on multiple levels. But it’s not the news conference. He’s been on the world stage, Joe Biden, for 40 years.” He later added, “[H]ere’s my message to President Biden: You claim that no Republican wants to help you. Well, that’s not true. You’ve got to do things that we can help you with. Why don’t we put sanctions on Russia now for the buildup, not the invasion? All Democratic sanctions hit Russia after they invade. Let’s punish Putin now.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    "Real Time" host Bill Maher closed his first show of 2022 by sounding the alarm for Democrats ahead of 2024.  "Democrats must thank President Biden for his great service to America and then move him into a more ceremonial role," Maher began his monologue Friday night. "Joe Biden has been president now for a year and a day. The day was pretty good, but the year? Not horrible, certainly better than the alternative, but for some reason, America has lost its faith in Joe. Sometimes that just happens." Maher cited recent polls showing only "26%" of Americans who say "things in the country are going well" and another showing Biden's approval at 33%.  "Democrats must thank President Biden for his great service to America and then move him into a more ceremonial role."  — Bill MaherBILL MAHER TORCHES SOTOMAYOR FOR BOTCHING COVID FACTS: ‘THAT’S REALLY IGNORANT FOR A SUPREME COURT JUSTICE' "If he were a movie, he'd be certified rotten," Maher quipped.

    Radio host Charlamagne tha God has said President Joe Biden together with Democratic centrist Senators Joe Manchin from West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema from Arizona are 'responsible for the death of the Democratic Party.'  Speaking on his radio show, The Breakfast Club, he proclaimed the trio to be the 'Donkey of The Day' after a push to change the Senate filibuster to pass election reform legislation was defeated in the week.  'These three are collectively responsible for the death of the Democratic Party as we know it,' Charlamagne said.  'People are asking if we are witnessing the death of of democracy in America?

    Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers took a shot at President Joe Biden in his latest interview with ESPN. Rodgers hasn’t been shy about taking on his critics, of which he includes the current U.S. President, Joe Biden. Biden reportedly told a Packers fan that he hopes Rodgers gets vaccinated. Rodgers, infamously ‘immunized’ as he puts it, took that as a slight and fired back at the President in an interview with ESPN. Rodgers, who spoke with ESPN’s Kevin Van Valkenburg about football, life and all things in between, didn’t shy away from talking about Biden. “When the president of the United States says, ‘This is a pandemic of the unvaccinated,’ it’s because him and his constituents, which, I don’t know how there are any if you watch any of his attempts at public speaking, but I guess he got 81 million votes,” Rodgers said Thursday.

    President Joe Biden told the nation's mayors Friday there was an immediate need to pass his Build Back Better social spending bill, in whatever form that may now take. The president, in remarks delivered in person at the U.S. Conference of Mayors' winter meeting, said that the group knows "what it means to solve real problems" and touted a number of senior administration officials with past mayoral experience, including Labor Secretary Marty Walsh and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. "We've got so much we can do with this legislation now," Biden stated, before outlining how his proposal would direct money toward climate programs, education expansion, and more. "We still face tremendous challenges though, but together, we've proven that we can get big things done in this country." "We're falling further and further behind the curve, but we can fix that problem. We can do this and more on healthcare, nutrition, a host of other issues, and folks, here's the point: We can do it without increasing inflation or the deficit," the president said.

    Radio host Charlamagne tha God named President Joe Biden, Sen. Krysten Sinema (D-AZ), and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) “Donkey of The Day” following the defeat of proposed change to the Senate filibuster, and the failure of election reform legislation. “These three are collectively responsible for the death of the Democratic party as we know it,” Charlamagne said Thursday’s edition of The Breakfast Club. “People are asking if we are witnessing the death of of democracy in America. Well guess what, if it is, which I believe it is, for some of us, these three are to blame.” Charlamagne explained that the end of the filibuster reform effort was worse than the Dallas Cowboys 23-17 playoff defeat. “I thought that would be the dumbest finish I would see this week,” Charlamagne said about the Cowboys loss. “But President Biden said, ‘Hold my prune juice!'” The radio star then ripped Biden for not prioritizing Black voter suppression and voting rights when he took office. “After the attempt to coup of this Country on January 6th, that should have been his first order...
    U.S. President Joe Biden speaks in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in Washington, D.C., U.S., on Wednesday, Nov. 3, 2021.Al Drago | Bloomberg | Getty Images A U.S. judge in Texas on Friday blocked the Biden administration from enforcing an executive order requiring federal employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19. The ruling marks the latest setback for President Joe Biden, whose efforts to boost U.S. vaccination rates through sweeping workplace safety rules have been repeatedly stymied in the courts. Judge Jeffrey Brown, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, wrote in a 20-page order that Biden's executive order "amounts to a presidential mandate that all federal employees consent to vaccination against COVID-19 or lose their jobs." "Because the President's authority is not that broad, the court will enjoin the second order's enforcement," read Brown's ruling in U.S. District Court in Galveston, Texas. This is breaking news.

    Barely two years have gone by since Democrats tried to remove the democratically-elected president of the United States from office by claiming that he might have withheld future security aid to a beleaguered ally, Ukraine, in exchange for an investigation into a political rival. Today, that rival, President Joe Biden, is practically inviting Russia to invade Ukraine, even declaring that Russian President Vladimir Putin “has to do something,” and hoping it is just a a “minor incursion.” Oh, how lyrical they waxed, that Democrat impeachment cabal, about how desperate Ukraine was to hold the Russians at bay, and how cruel it was for Trump — who had given them anti-tank missiles, unlike his predecessor — to ask for some help in figuring out into what former Vice President Biden was doing by demanding the ouster of a prosecutor with jurisdiction over the company that was paying his son, Hunter Biden, a fortune to sit on its board, threatening U.S. financial support. “It is important to note that our country’s policy of supporting Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity, promoting Ukrainian prosperity,...
    (CNN)Here's an apparently unpopular opinion: Joe Biden is not failing or flailing. His presidency is not in peril. It's hard to see this through the blizzard of over-the-top headlines such as, "Biden Can Still Rescue His Presidency," "How the Biden Administration Lost Its Way" and "Biden's Epic Failures." Kirsten Powers Everyone needs to take a breath: It's been one year. These headlines could just as easily read, "Joe Biden Fails to Fix Every Problem in the World in 365 days."Read More What drives much of the "presidency in peril" coverage is Biden's approval ratings. CNN's poll of polls, released Thursday, found that 41% of Americans approve of the way Joe Biden is handling his job while 54% disapprove. Low approval ratings are used as a proxy by various political and ideological factions to argue that the president needs to do more of what they want and if he doesn't, he won't get reelected. (Spoiler alert: nobody will cast their vote in three years based on how they feel today about Biden). Progressives argue ratings are low because Biden is...
    A recent poll from the Trafalgar Group showed low job approval numbers for President Joe Biden as he approached the one-year mark of being in office. The Trafalgar Group poll showed that only 38.7 percent approve of Biden’s handling of his job as president, while a majority (59.2 percent) disapprove of his job as president. The poll showed that 2.1 percent of the respondents had no opinion. Broken down into subcategories, about half of the total respondents (49.9 percent) said they “strongly disapprove” of Biden’s job as president, while 9.3 percent said they just disapprove. By party, the poll found that only 10.1 percent of Republicans approve and 88.3 percent disapprove, while 71.7 percent of Democrats approve and 25.6 percent disapprove. Biden only garnered 30.8 approval with unaffiliated voters, while a majority (67.7 percent) disapproved. The poll was conducted between January 12 and 15.

    Sean Hannity warned of the consequences of President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris's job performances in Thursday's opening monologue of "Hannity." "Tonight, it's clear we have a president and a vice president — they are not up to this job," Hannity said. "But I know this and you know this. America's enemies, they're also seeing everything we're seeing, and sadly, tonight, as a result, the world and our country [are] less safe and less secure." RUSSIA THREATS, RHETORIC INCREASE CHANCE OF CONFLICT AS IT SEEKS NATO ASSURANCES Biden's "train wreck marathon press conference [Wednesday] only made everything worse," he continued. "In between the lying and the rage and the bizarre whispering — ‘Just get vaccinated’ … and the bouts of confusion, Joe Biden all but invited Vladimir Putin, gave a green light to him for him to attack Ukraine so long [as] it was a ‘minor incursion.’"  "The Russians are testing us," he said. "Joe Biden failed that test. Needless to say, the people of Ukraine are now very, very concerned." "Rightly so," he added.  next...
    On Wednesday, just months out from the midterm elections, Sens. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., and Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., blocked their own party's effort to pass a sweeping voting rights overhaul by refusing to exempt the measure from a Republican filibuster. The conservative Democratic explained his reasoning during a floor speech that day, addressing the upper chamber just as President Joe Biden prepared to address the nation ahead of his one-year anniversary in office. As Biden continued to push his stalled agenda, Manchin erected a big poster with one sentence to encapsulate his defense of the filibuster: "The United States Senate has NEVER been able to end debate with a SIMPLE MAJORITY." Manchin's logic rests on the claim that no party has ever ended debate with a simple majority, largely because a filibuster requires 60 votes for a cloture (i.e., the official procedure used to end the filibuster). By creating a voting rights carveout in the filibuster that would allow Democrats to pass the bill with a simple majority, Democrats would be breaking legislative tradition, Manchin argues. His central assumption, however, is...
    President Joe Biden again tried to clarify his comments Thursday about how the United States would respond if Russia invaded Ukraine. “If any assembled Russian units move across the Ukrainian border, that is an invasion,” Biden stressed during a White House event on infrastructure Thursday, promising punishing economic sanctions if Russian President Vladimir Putin crossed the line. Biden’s comment seemed to suggest that “unassembled” Russian units could cross into Ukraine and not trigger a response, a day after the White House spent several hours trying to clarify the president’s comments about Putin to concerned allies. Biden shocked the world after he suggested during a press conference on Wednesday that it was a foregone conclusion Putin would move into Ukraine. “My guess is he will move in. He has to do something,” Biden said. He also suggested that “a minor incursion” into the country would not necessarily provoke a response from the United States. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky delivered an emergency evening speech after Biden’s remarks urging his citizens to “take a deep breath” and “calm down.” “Keep your head calm...
    Congressional Republicans had a wealth of topics to criticize as they commemorated the one-year anniversary of President Joe Biden’s inauguration with a festival of events, with energy bubbling as they eye taking back the House in 2022. “We've got an economy that is damaged. You got cities, the streets, that are dangerous. We have adversaries feel emboldened,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said in a press conference on Thursday, flanked by two dozen House Republicans. He tore into Biden for saying that he would work with Republicans, saying that Republicans warned the White House that it would create inflation. “One year later, we were right,” McCarthy said. “One year later, when we need tests that he was going to promise, we weren't a part of that. More Americans have died from COVID last year than the year before, and we have vaccines. This is a president quoted in his campaign: If you reached a certain level of casualty, the person shouldn't maintain being president.” Criticism flowed from both sides of the aisle throughout the week, gaining...
    Wednesday on FNC’s “Hannity,” conservative talker Mark Levin reacted to the press conference given by President Joe Biden earlier in the day marking his first year in office. Levin gave Biden very low marks and compared him to two of his predecessors, former Presidents John Tyler and James Buchanan, regarded by some as the worst president in American history. Transcript as follows: HANNITY: Here with reaction, author of the best seller — the best-selling book for all of 2021, “American Marxism”.

    President Joe Biden As we lick our wounds following the devastating failure of two historic voting rights bills in the Senate, let’s try to look to the accomplishments of President Joe Biden’s first year in office and our Democratic Party. As former President Barack Obama before him, Biden entered office with a deep hole to climb out of. Former President Donald Trump left a trash fire of sick, conspiratorial Americans doubting their own election, as well as the science that could lead us out of the pandemic and climate change. He opened the door and invited in white supremacy, gave tax breaks to the ultra-rich, and broke an already broken country further apart. Let’s not even get started on the country trying to heal from an attempted coup on the U.S. Capitol. But, despite the horrors of the insurrection, the Biden administration passed a $1.9 trillion emergency COVID-19 relief package to cover vaccines in the middle of a raging pandemic, reopen schools, and support the nation’s small businesses and families. Over 70% of Americans are fully vaccinated, and this week, the government made it possible...
    The White House on Thursday denied President Joe Biden thinks the 2022 midterm election will be illegitimate - their second clean up from his press conference the previous day. But the messaging got mixed when a prominent black Democratic lawmaker said he was 'absolutely concerned' this year's election won't be legitimate.  Biden, in his nearly two-hour press conference on Wednesday, was asked if the 2022 election would be legitimate if Democrats' voting rights package didn't pass in the Senate. 'I’m not going to say it’s going to be legit,' he said in response. 'The increase and the prospect of being illegitimate is in direct proportion to us not being able to get these reforms passed.' Critics immediately lashed out, asking how Biden could question the legitimacy of the election after slamming Donald Trump for his false claim he won in the 2020 contest.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki took to Twitter Thursday morning to clarify. 'Lets be clear: @POTUS was not casting doubt on the legitimacy of the 2022 election. He was making the opposite point: In 2020, a record...
    Republican Conference Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik hammered President Joe Biden Thursday morning for questioning at his press conference what Republicans stand for.  'Let me tell you what we are for,' the New York lawmaker said on Fox & Friends. 'We are for the Constitution. We are for lower taxes. We are for balanced budgets. We are for peace through strength and a strong military, not this weakness that Joe Biden has shown and is showing now.'  She also claimed that what Biden is for is the same agenda supported by progressives including Sen. Bernie Sanders and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Republican Conference Chair Rep. Elise Stefanik hammered President Joe Biden Thursday morning for questioning at his press conference what Republicans stand for 'The reality is the far left has control of the agenda and he has allowed that to happen,' Stefanik said. 'He has allowed the AOCs, the Bernie Sanders, to pull his agenda so far to the left.'    At his Wednesday press conference, marking his first year in office coming to a close, Biden said one thing he didn't expect was...
    The biggest news President Biden made at his news conference wasn't about Ukraine.  It was his brief answer to the question: 'Are you satisfied with your team here at the White House, sir?'  Biden, to the consternation of observers in both parties, answered curtly: 'I am satisfied with the team.' For Washington insiders, the decision to keep his current team into his second year as president is inexplicable. Senator Ben Sasse, a Republican not known for his partisanship, called on Biden to fire his chief of staff, Ron Klain, for pushing a 'guaranteed-to-fail vote' on killing the Senate filibuster that he argued as a political ploy.  'It's CYA (cover your ass) week in Washington,' Sasse told Fox News. He said the vote was held in part 'so that Ron Klain can throw some chum at the Democratic Party's progressive base.' 'Ron Klain thinks his own activists are dumb enough to fall for it.'  Sasse focused on Klain, because it's common knowledge that the 60-year-old backroom operator has unusual power in the Biden White House. Klain first worked with Biden in...
    (CNN)It was one of Joe Biden's shortest answers in his nearly-two hour press conference Wednesday. It was also the worst.He was asked, "How do you plan to win back moderates and independents who cast a ballot for you in 2020 but, polls indicate, aren't happy with the way you're doing your job now?" The President responded this way: "I don't believe the polls."Which, well, what?If you heard echoes of former President Donald Trump in that answer, you're not alone. Read More"If it's bad, I say it's fake," Trump said last year. "If it's good, I say that's the most accurate poll ever." And, back in 2018, Trump told a crowd this about the news more broadly: "Don't believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news. ... What you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening."That's not to equate what Biden did on Wednesday with the four years of misleading and outright lying Trump did as president. They're not the same.And, my guess is that Biden was simply being glib in his response to a question...
    This is a rush transcript of "Special Report with Bret Baier" on January 19, 2022. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated. BAIER: Let's turn now to our panel bringing them in early, Syndicated Radio Host Hugh Hewitt, Leslie Marshall, Democratic strategist and former White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer.Just a few moments ago, Ben Sasse, Republican senator put out this press release about the president's press conference. He said it was an absolute train wreck that will have serious consequences. President Biden basically gave Putin a green light to invade Ukraine by yammering about the supposed insignificance of a minor incursion. He projected weakness, not strength. If that wasn't bad enough, he undermined trust in our elections here at home. This isn't hard. If you're the president of the United States you affirm public trust in our elections. Sadly, both the current president and the former president repeatedly pathetically equivocate and he goes on.Back with the panel, Hugh. There were a number of things to take from that. First of all, the fact...
    The White House spent Thursday morning trying to clean up comments President Joe Biden made questioning the legitimacy of the 2022 midterms. “Lets be clear: The president was not casting doubt on the legitimacy of the 2022 election,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki wrote on social media. Lets be clear: @potus was not casting doubt on the legitimacy of the 2022 election. He was making the opposite point: In 2020, a record number of voters turned out in the face of a pandemic, and election officials made sure they could vote and have those votes counted. — Jen Psaki (@PressSec) January 20, 2022 During his press conference, Biden repeatedly warned that voting reforms passed by Republicans in states could call into question the results of the election. “Oh, yeah, I think it easily could be — be illegitimate,” Biden said when asked about the 2022 midterms, as Breitbart News reported. Biden repeatedly questioned the legitimacy of the upcoming 2022 election, unless bills were passed in Congress to federalize elections. “I’m not going to say it’s going to be legit,”...
    Republican Conference chair Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., hit back at President Biden on "Fox & Friends," providing an answer to his question during Wednesday night’s news conference where he asked, "What are Republicans for?" "Let me tell you what we are for," she said. "We are for the Constitution. We are for lower taxes. We are for balanced budgets. We are for peace through strength and a strong military, not this weakness that Joe Biden has shown and is showing now." BIDEN'S PRESS CONFEREENCE GETS PANNED BY CRITICS: ‘TOTAL DISASTER’ The president claimed that five GOP senators have admitted to being in support of his agenda but refuse to back it to avoid defeat in their primary elections. Stefanik argued that this is plainly untrue since even members of his own party oppose some of his policies.

    Fox News contributor Lara Trump told "Fox & Friends" on Thursday that President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are not viable candidates for 2024. BIDEN APPEARS TO LOSE HIS COOL AFTER REPORTER'S QUESTION IN DIVISIVENESS: ‘GO BACK AND READ WHAT I SAID’ LARA TRUMP: One of the things he told us was that he outperformed. And I’m not sure in what way he thinks he outperformed. Perhaps he outperformed even our lowest expectations of how poorly you could do in your first year in office. That is a possibility. … Let’s address the elephant in the room. No one really believed that Joe Biden himself is running in 2024. The bottom line is that these two, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have performed so badly in their first year in office they really are not, for the Democrats, viable candidates in 2024 apart or together. So yes, we have to take all of this with a huge grain of salt. I assume the White House is tired of getting asked questioned about two of them running so, they probably...
    A one year anniversary in a new job is usually a cause for celebration. Not for President Joe Biden. He ends his first year in the White House with a clear majority of Americans underwhelmed by his handling of the presidency in the face of an unrelenting pandemic, roaring inflation, a stalled legislative agenda, and supply chain bottlenecks. Poll results released Thursday from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research held the grim news of a collapse in public confidence for Biden and his team. More Americans disapprove than approve of how Biden is handling his job as president, 56 percent to 43 percent, the results show. As of now, just 28 percent of Americans say they want Biden to run for re-election in 2024, including only 48 percent of Democrats. Asked on Wednesday at a rare news conference about his flagging popularity, Biden responded, “I don’t believe the polls,” which on the evidence is probably reassuring for his own ego but is unlikely to ease fears within his administration he is on the right track. U.S. President Joe...
    President Joe Biden expressed his frustration at being trapped in the White House on Wednesday, unable to travel and speak directly to the American people. The president spoke with reporters for 112 minutes during a rare solo press conference at the White House. Biden was confronted by NBC News reporter Kristen Welker who said during a visit to South Carolina, black voters she spoke to had written off his efforts on voting rights as a “last-minute PR push” The president was disappointed to hear the news, lamenting he had been trapped in the White House during the first year of his presidency. “Part of the problem is, as well: I have not been out in the community nearly enough,” he said. “I’ve been here an awful lot.” He lamented that the coronavirus pandemic and Washington politics prevented him from interacting with the people. He said: I find myself in a situation where I don’t get a chance to look people in the eye, because of both COVID and things that are happening in Washington, to be able to go out...
    President Joe Biden has confirmed that he plans to keep Vice President Kamala Harris on the ticket in 2024, following rumors of tensions between the pair.  'Yes and yes,' Biden responded at his press conference on Wednesday when asked whether he was satisfied with Harris' work on voting rights and if he could 'guarantee' to keep her as a running mate.  Pressed to elaborate, Biden said: 'There's no need to, I answered the question.'  'She's going to be my running mate, number one,' he said. 'And number two, I did put her in charge. I think she's doing a good job.'  President Joe Biden has confirmed that he plans to keep Vice President Kamala Harris on the ticket in 2024, following rumors of tensions between the pair In recent months, reports have suggested tensions between the vice president's office and the West Wing RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next 'It's like Reagan at the end': Van Jones says that Biden was...

    Sean Hannity excoriated President Biden's "blatant lies" from his press conference Wednesday in the opening monologue of "Hannity." "Our enemies are watching this," Hannity said. "It's scary, it's troubling." BIDEN'S PRESS CONFERENCE GETS PANNED BY CRITICS: 'TOTAL DISASTER' He continued on Biden's performance in front of the press corps: "You know, Vladimir Putin, President Xi, the mullahs in Iran. In fact, Putin is now amassing troops at the border of Ukraine, ready to attack, cause a massive war in Europe.

    President Joe Biden shrugged off polls showing voters believed he was not mentally fit, during a press conference at the White House on Wednesday. One reporter asked Biden why only 40 percent of voters in a new Morning Consult survey believe Biden is mentally fit, 37 percent say he is in good health, and 43 percent believe he is stable. “I have no idea,” Biden replied. The president appeared aware of recent polling showing his approval ratings at record lows but expressed disbelief that his approval was low even among independents. “I don’t believe the polls,” he said shortly. Biden appeared to relish the length of his 112-minute press conference, telling reporters he was considering staying for as long as three hours. “I can still stand. It’s amazing,” he said wryly when reporters thanked him for taking their questions. “I can do pushups.” But his answers to questions from reporters grew longer and more meandering as the press conference continued. Biden indicated he would shift his communications strategy in the coming months, and get out of the White House to...
    President Joe Biden defended the first year of his presidency at a press conference at the White House on Wednesday, refusing to change course amidst record-low approval ratings of his job performance. When asked by a reporter if he overpromised Americans what he could accomplish as president, Biden replied, “I didn’t overpromise. And I have probably outperformed what anybody thought would happen.” Biden stayed at the press conference for about 112 minutes, taking over two dozen questions from reporters. The president claimed he did not believe the polls reporting that 59 percent of independents disapprove of his job performance. “I don’t believe the polls,” he said. But he also pointed to similar modern presidents who faced low approval ratings of around 45 percent. He acknowledged his failed Build Back Better bill might have to get broken up to get some of his future legislation passed through Congress. “I’m confident we can get pieces, big chunks of the Build Back Better law signed into law,” he said. Biden flashed several signs of emotion as he struggled to directly answer questions from...
    During CNN’s coverage of President Joe Biden’s press conference on Wednesday, host Jake Tapper stated that raising doubt about the legitimacy of election results is something Democrats and reporters have disliked about former President Donald Trump and Biden refused to say that the 2022 election would be legitimate, but he’s “certainly not going to compare what Joe Biden just said, President Biden just said, with Donald Trump’s history when it comes to the big lie on the elections.” Tapper said, “[S]ince 2015, since Donald Trump came down that escalator, the idea of sowing doubt in election results has been something that Democrats and reporters and the public have not liked about Donald Trump. And I’m certainly not going to compare what Joe Biden just said, President Biden just said, with Donald Trump’s history when it comes to the big lie on the elections. But he refused to say that the election results this midterm — in these midterms in November would be legitimate. He refused it.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    President Joe Biden on Wednesday reaffirmed he would run for president again in 2024 with Vice President Kamala Harris as his running mate. The president was asked during a press conference at the White House if he was pleased with Harris and whether he would keep her as his running mate when he ran for re-election. “Yes, and yes,” Biden replied shortly, and added, “She will be my running mate.” Harris has struggled with record-low approval ratings despite multiple attempts to rebrand her image as the first female Vice President and multiple resignations among her staff. An August poll showed Harris as the least popular vice president in modern history after spending six months in office. In several interviews, Harris has refused to entertain questions about her political future. “I’m sorry, we are thinking about today,” Harris replied after she was asked by NBC’s Craig Melvin about 2024. “I mean, honestly, I know why you’re asking the question because this is part of the punditry and the gossip around places like Washington, DC.”

    President Joe Biden continues suffering record-low approval ratings as he marks one year as president. Only 40 percent of voters approve of Biden’s job performance, according to the most recent Politico/Morning Consult poll, a record low for the survey. Fifty-six percent disapprove of his job performance. Biden faces a 59 percent disapproval among Independents, who were essential in tipping the 2020 presidential election in his favor. The poll was conducted Jan. 15-16, 2022, among a representative sample of 2,005 registered voters, with an unweighted margin of error of plus or minus two percentage points. Only 40 percent of voters in the survey believe Biden is mentally fit, 37 percent say he is in good health, and 43 percent say he is stable. Biden took office with a 59 percent approval rating in January 2021 and briefly crested with a 62 percent approval rating in March before slowly declining. Many Democrats are concerned Biden’s sinking polling numbers “will lead to a thrashing at the ballot box.” https://t.co/SMjvRHtDOg — Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) December 6, 2021 The president’s approval ratings sank below 50...
    His Frauduelency Joe Biden’s job approval rating crashed to a record low Wednesday in the RealClearPolitics (RCP) poll of polls. For the first time, and on the one-year anniversary of his failed presidency, Biden’s average approval rating dipped below 41 percent. He now sits at just 40.9 percent. Biden’s average disapproval rating is now well over 50 percent, at 53.3 percent, which means he is 12.4 points underwater. Both Gallup and the far-left Politico released polls today that put Biden’s approval and 40 percent and his disapproval at 56 percent. Civiqs polling has him at just 34 percent. In the Gallup poll, going all the way back to John F. Kennedy 60 years ago, Biden has the lowest year-end approval rating of any president except for former President Trump. The thing you have to remember about Trump, though, is that his low approval rating was based on two things that have nothing to do with the state of the country: his abrasive style and the corporate media and FBI teaming up to frame him as a Russian spy.
