As President Joe Biden’s presidency continues to crumble, we’re reminded of an astonishing sentence he muttered during a CNN town hall event last month, which was hosted by Don Lemon, one of Biden’s most dramatic fanboys.
During the course of the event, Lemon pressed Biden on the “misinformation” and “mistrust” in the system with regard to the COVID-19 vaccine, asking the president how he might fix that. Biden’s response was simple, ridiculous, and scary. “You’ve got to get people to the point where they trust government,” Biden replied, according to an official White House transcript.
The president, at the time, also reminded Lemon that he was all about transparency, claiming that he “made a commitment that when I made a mistake, I’d tell you,” which proved to be utterly false, as leaders from both sides of the political aisle have classified his disastrous U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan as nothing less than a grave mistake.
Biden would ultimately make a number of statements during the CNN town hall event that drew intense criticism on social media the day after, as Fox News reported.
National Review editor Jack Butler described the town hall as “contrived,” and added that it was a “hideous spectacle unbecoming of a self-governing republic.”
“If CNN had any shame or respect for the citizens of a self-governing republic, the network would never air one of these idiotic events again,” Butler said. “But don’t expect that to happen anytime soon.”
Not only was it noted — by a Bloomberg reporter nonetheless — that CNN carefully made sure not to show that the chairs were mostly empty for the town hall event, but it was also a heavily partisan affair, with eight Democrats called on to ask questions while only three Republicans were provided the same opportunity.
Lemon was absolutely trashed by multiple pundits and members of the media for not asking a single tough question of the president, with some claiming that it was clear at that point that Lemon was also employed by the Democratic Party.
Given what has happened, especially over the past two weeks, Biden is probably the last person in America qualified to suggest that Americans should “trust” the government, for he has proven that such a notion is reserved for fools.
