Is Maureen Dowd a slow learner – only now discovering Joe Biden is not who he pretends to be – or has the liberal media suddenly been given a green light to criticize the president? Are Democrat leaders conspiring to push him out as scandal envelopes the White House and the president’s approval ratings drop to levels not seen since Jimmy Carter?
New York Times columnist Dowd caused something of a commotion over the weekend by criticizing Joe Biden, a rare event for the Left-leaning press.
In a piece titled “It’s Seven Grandkids, Mr. President,” Dowd berated the president, correctly, for ignoring his seventh grandchild, Navy Joan Roberts, born to Hunter Biden and Lunden Roberts. She (and her Republican sister Peggy, apparently a fan of the president) are shocked that Biden, a self-declared family man, would be so unkind to Hunter’s out-of-wedlock daughter.
The Dowd sisters have finally cottoned onto what millions figured out long ago: Joe Biden is a fraud. The president’s big flashy smile and corny language have conned voters for years, but Americans are figuring out that the president is not at all who he pretends to be.
For example, he is not the genial, grandfatherly fellow he pretends to be. On Monday, Axios published a scathing piece titled “Old Yeller,” about Biden’s bad temper, “rages” and “moodiness,” including his copious use of vulgar language.

More fundamentally, please remember the core promises of his 2020 campaign: that he would govern as a political moderate and work to bring the nation together. He tossed those pledges out the window the minute he occupied the Oval Office.
To win the 2020 election, he did a deal with then-rival Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., more or less adopting the progressive senator’s agenda in return for his followers’ votes.
Biden promised to return decency and honesty to the White House. With transvestites baring their bosoms on the South Lawn, cocaine appearing in the West Wing and, worse, scandal enveloping the president, we can agree that pledge has been broken, too. Biden is accused, credibly, of taking bribes and receiving payoffs from foreign companies while serving as vice president; the majority of voters now think these charges are true.
Instead of responding to these horrifying allegations, the president brushes aside the mounting evidence of apparent wrongdoing as “malarkey” or, worse, challenges the press by asking, “Where’s the money?”
Mykola Zlochevsky, the Ukrainian owner of Burisma and the country’s former minister of ecology and natural resources, claims to have forked over millions in bribes to Hunter and Joe Biden; he says the money went into so many shell corporations “it will take ten years” to trace; my guess – we’ll get there eventually.”
Foreign policy guru Eliot Cohen published a piece in the Atlantic in recent days, thanking Biden for having prevented Donald Trump for occupying the White House for another four years but also writing, “The president has no business running for president at his age.”
In a fawning interview over the weekend, CNN’s Fareed Zacharia flattered the president before asking about Biden’s “hardened supporters” who think “the next thing [you] should do is step aside and let another generation of Democrats take the baton.”
