On Wednesday Joe Biden took the oath of office to become the 46th president, and the media was fast to confirm those who predicted the start of a long vacation for “journalism.”
Brit Hume spotted a couple of examples marking the beginning of a presidential honeymoon:
And so the honeymoon begins. Clinton didn’t get one, nor did Trump. Biden’s looks to be exceptionally gushy. https://t.co/FsgCMKAaMc

This is the kind of journalism you get during a presidential honeymoon. Not every president gets one. This one seems especially gushy. Let’s see if it passes. https://t.co/chI2irq7TF

And we couldn’t be less surprised!
Only Democrat presidents get a honeymoon, Republicans go immediately into hostile marriage counseling

Four years ago they were lying about what Trump was taking out of the Oval Office….

This whole day has been unbearably gushy.

“Let’s see if it passes”?
The WaPo was originally set up to advance the Democrat Party. Called for the impeachment of Trump w/i 20 minutes of swearing in. Cheer-led the 4-year long attempted coup. I’m not holding my breath. https://t.co/vG0Fe9lm4y
