The media is in the tank for President Biden. This is not shocking news. They defend him and ignore his clear cognitive decline because he is their chosen president come hell or high water.
But a new piece in the Associated Press is even bad for the low standards of the 2021 media.
AP published an article titled: “Listen Up: Biden Speaks Volumes in a Whisper to Make a Point.”
The article claims that Biden is actually a communications genius by deploying his creepy whispers. Move over Ronald Reagan, Joe Biden is the new “Great Communicator.”
As you may recall, last month during an impromptu press conference, Sleepy Joe leaned forward and whispered into the mic three times…and it left a lot of people unnerved.
#CreepyJoe was even trending on Twitter immediately after.
Newsweek reported, “When PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor asked him about additional relief for families amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Biden leant over the lectern and whispered: ‘I got them $1.9 trillion in relief so far. They’re going to be getting checks in the mail that are consequential this week for childcare.’”
But Joe wasn’t done whispering, because once he got going, he couldn’t stop himself.
When answering a question on the environment, Biden lowered his voice to say, “I wrote the bill on the environment. Why would I not be for it?”
And then Biden whispered one more time, and proceeded to lecture employers on why they should raise wages…which is rich coming from a man who has worked in government most of his adult life. How could he possibly know anything about margins and labor costs, particularly the burdens high labor costs have on small businesses?
Biden whispered, “Pay them more. This is an employee’s—an employee’s bargaining chip now.”
That brings us to Biden’s shills in the press, who will always be there to protect him, no matter how hard he falls…or trips up the stairs of Air Force One.
The AP reported, “The White House and communications experts say Biden’s whispering is just this veteran politician’s old-school way of trying to make a connection while emphasizing a point…
‘It’s an intimate form of communication,’ said Vanessa Beasley, associate professor of communication studies at Vanderbilt University.”
Given Biden’s history of sniffing girls’ hair and rubbing their shoulders, intimate might not have been the best choice of words.
The ridiculous piece continued:
“Biden isn’t really whispering because his vocal cords vibrate and make sound.
A true whisper is something you wouldn’t be able to hear very well,’ she said, [a communications expert] comparing what Biden does to a ‘stage whisper’ in which an actor in a play steps out of character to share a secret with the audience or preview some action that’s about to happen.”
I am so glad the Associated Press informed us what an actual whisper is. Apparently, because his vocal cords are vibrating, he isn’t whispering. How enlightening.
They spent four years trying to destroy President Trump, and now they write fluff pieces about Joe Biden’s whispering technique.
And they wonder why Americans don’t trust the media and why Americans lead the world in distrust of media.
It’s going to be a long four years.
