Joe Biden’s presidency has been a rough one, that’s for sure, and it’s not only Republicans saying so at this point.
Biden has certainly lived up to his Trump-given nickname “Sleepy Joe” during his first year and a half in office, allowing a number of the nation’s most damaging crises to continue to spiral out of control. From the southern border to Wall Street, the Biden White House has failed immensely, over and over again.
That’s why even his former Press Secretary has some harsh words about Biden’s potential impact on the coming midterm elections.
Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Sunday that the Democrats know “they will lose” if the midterm elections end up being a referendum on President Biden.
While discussing Democratic and Republican midterm messaging, NBC’s Chuck Todd played an ad by the Arizona Democratic Party focused on Kari Lake that tied together abortion rights and crime. Todd said that he wasn’t sure if the ad was really effective or if they were trying too hard to tie the two issues together.
“Look, I think that Democrats, if the election is about who is the most extreme, as we saw, you know, Kevin McCarthy touch on there with Marjorie Taylor Greene, I’ll say her name, sitting over his left side, then they’re going to win. If it is a referendum on the president, they will lose, and they know that,” Psaki said.
And that wasn’t all.
She added that Democrats also know that they are vulnerable when it comes to crime. Psaki said Republicans were throwing a lot of money behind ads focusing on crime and Pennsylvania Senate candidate John Fetterman.
The November congressional election appears to be coming down to the wire, with a number of disparate polls suggesting that the once-predicted “red wave” may not crash into the Capitol quite as powerfully as once thought.
