Joe Biden has really really really really really had a horrible week.
Well, technically heās had a really really really really really horrible first year of his presidency but we digress.
You know itās bad when even The Daily Beast is calling him out:
Joe Biden Was Supposed to Be the Anti-Trump, But He's Just as Divisive https://t.co/HUgHBU3lKE

From The Daily Beast:
Joe Bidenās mandate was to restore norms and work across the aisle to heal the countryās toxic political cultureāin other words, toĀ not be Donald Trump.
This past week demonstrated how he hasĀ failed to live up to that promise. In particular, his speech in Atlanta serves as a microcosm for aĀ disappointing year of leadershipĀ that has cratered his popularity.
The president compared opponents of changing Senate filibuster rules, in order to pass Democratic voting rights bills, to notorious racists likeĀ Bull Connor, George Wallace, and Jefferson Davis. In so doing, Biden is appropriating Trumpās method of otherizing adversaries and casting political opponents as āenemies of the peopleā and āhuman scum.ā
Appropriate Trumpās method of otherizing adversaries.
Do they REALLY think Trump came up with that? They mustāve missed it when Hillary called half the country ādeplorablesā. And maybe they werenāt paying attention when Obama talked about bitter clingers? Or when he said heād bring a gun to a knife fight with his adversaries? Biden himself told Black Americans āthey aināt blackā if they donāt vote for him. He has said Republicans will put Black Americans āback in chainsā, not to mention his comments on needing an Indian accent to work at or even go into a 7-11.
Heās been around in politics since God was a boy, the only way they couldnāt have known what a tool he is was to deliberately ignore the reality of Biden.
As Joe would say if he could remember to say it, āCāmon man!ā
Who could have predicted that Joe Biden would be divisive? We only had 40 years of his political career to get to know him

Said no one who's paid attention since the 70's
