As Twitchy reported, President Joe Biden signed into law Tuesday the Democrats’ “climate, health, and tax” bill that a week ago we were all calling the Inflation Reduction Act. We’ve noted a glimmer of hope in the mainstream media lately; CNN’s Kaitlan Collins asked Karine Jean-Pierre how Biden will use his “string of wins” to help Dems win big in November. Politico’s Sam Stein last week remarked on Biden’s “deep, personally fulfilling day” after he authorized funds to help veterans exposed to burn pits. Liberals are finally seeing a turnaround and are praying that Biden can keep the momentum going.
Over at the New York Times, fashion director and critic Vanessa Friedman has noted that “Aviator Joe” has returned after beating COVID (twice) and enjoying a week’s vacation in South Carolina. (She forgot to mention the anniversary of the fall of Afghanistan.)
Aviator Joe is back — just in time to take his quasi-victory lap.
Forget the glowing eyes of Dark Brandon. As President Joseph R. Biden Jr. arrives back in Washington, D.C., to enter the White House to sign the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, it is his Ray-Ban 3025s — the dark, wire-rimmed, teardrop-shaped sunglasses he has made his signature — that once again seem the emblem of the man.
Though the aviators and the big grin, public-service-is-cool persona they represent never exactly went away, they receded into the background, relegated mostly to bike rides and similar low-eyeball appearances as the president wrestled with Covid (policy, variants, his own case), the war in Ukraine, inflation and other grim issues. At the G7 outdoors family photo in June, he went tieless (like everyone else) and aviator-less. At the White House Easter Egg Roll, the first since the pandemic, the glasses were similarly gone.
To make sure we’re getting this straight … the New York Times had its fashion director write an article about Biden’s sunglasses.
Our corrupt propaganda press are debasing themselves even more. Here the NYT goes into alternate reality to describe the decrepit and brain-addled Biden — with a string of major foreign policy, border, economy, and cultural failures — as only it shamelessly can. @VVFriedman pic.twitter.com/hlYAcJ1iVe

Those aviator shades are worn to cover up the obvious signs of damage, much like a boxer after a fight. Except there's no fight in this fellow.

Remember that video where he never blinked for like, 30 seconds?
The corrupt propaganda media never fails. Pathetic.

Aviator Joe. All that brings to mind is confused POTUS getting off military plane, needing Jill to spend 10 minutes helping him into his jacket sleeve. Whereupon, on cue, Joe drops and probably cracks those famous aviators on the tarmac.

The only reason for this adulation of a presidential failure, is his career politician for the chosen party. This is the poster boy for term limits.

Aviator Joe couldn’t pilot a cow down a lane.

It’s an alternate reality they’re peddling.

He has brown eyes now.

Are those aviator or aderall shades? They are trying to hide the big guy’s drug use to keep him functional for short periods of time.

Aviators Joe? The man’s a crash landing.
— Patrick Crowley (@rpc68) August 16, 2022
The aviators are a con, designed to portray Biden as some tough, crusty old salt, as though he’s an old aviator who has seen shit, man.
They are cringe- glasses on him

Joe Biden is dead, all hail Joe Biden.

When Biden’s sunglasses are on, you know he means business. It’s a ray of hope for the Left.
Admire the discipline of these 2 servicemembers for keeping it together during Biden’s epic struggle with his jacket and glasses https://t.co/AWnVxvRl2f
