Wow I can’t believe Joe Biden once said he doesn’t want his kids to grow up in a “racial jungle” meaning he didn’t want his kids going to school with African American kids. I’ve never heard Trump say anything nearly that racist, if Trump ever said anything like that it would be on the front page of every newspaper every day during his entire presidency. Yet Biden gets a pass because he is liberal. What a huge double standard. I guess if liberals didn’t have double standards they’d have no standards at all.

President Biden's approval is at a dismal 39% amid economic fears; more than 7 in 10 Americans say the country is on 'wrong track': USA TODAY/Suffolk poll. Ahead of the November midterm elections where control of Congress is at stake, the USA TODAY/Suffolk poll showed that a stunning 47% "Strongly" disapprove, while just 16% "Strongly" approve. Academic studies have shown that presidential approval is one of the most reliable predictors of what happens in midterm elections, and a rating this low would traditionally signal significant losses for the president's party.
