OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.


A series of photos posted to social media have some people speculating that President Joe Biden was being berated by his wife, first lady Jill Biden.

The photos of the president and first lady speaking, with President Biden looking dejected, were posted by Republican Rapid Response team member Jake Schneider with the caption “A story in four parts.”

The first photo appears as though the president is yelling at the first lady.

In photo two it appears that Jill Biden is yelling at her husband.

In the third photo the president has his head down like a scolded child and in photo four he is walking away from her looking dejected.

We have no way of knowing what the conversation entailed, or if any yelling actually happened, but Twitter users had many responses.

“The body language on this, elder abuse?” one Twitter user said.

“I honestly really feel sorry for Joe. He’s a freaking Muppet and the worst thing is he knows it too. His own administration restates everything joe says and he’s not even allowed to take questions anymore unless they are scripted. His cognitive decline will be studied for ages,” another said.

“This is sad. A story told in four parts about elder abuse. Awful,” Minnesota State Rep. Mary Franson said.

“Looks like pharmaceutical commercial on tv where the man thinks he sees two Labrador retrievers,” another Twitter user said.

“Reading @USAToday makes everyone sad!” Tony Bruno said.

“Is he crying?” another Twitter user said.

“This is sad. I feel sorry for him and still angry that his spouse would even encourage him to be in this position,” another said.

It may be time for President Joe Biden to take a good, long look at not campaigning for president again in 2024 if he cares about his Democrat Party maintaining control of the White House.

A new poll shows that a whopping 71 percent of voters do not want the 79-year-old making an attempt to be president again in 2024 when he would be 82 years-old, Mediaite reported.

The Harvard-Harris poll was conducted among 1,308 registered voters on June 28 and 29.

Among those who said he shouldn’t run, the most common reason given was that “he’s a bad president (45%), followed by “he’s too old” (30%), and “it’s time for a change” (26%).

Not surprisingly, the poll shows Biden with weak approval ratings on a host of issues, but he fares worst on economic matters. Just 28% either strongly or somewhat approve of his handling of inflation, while 32% approve of his handling of the economy overall.

The poll puts Biden’s general approval rating at 38%. Moreover, an alarming 64% of Americans say their personal financial situation is “getting worse.” That’s the highest number since at least before the Covid-19 pandemic began.

And if Democrats believe that the issue of abortion is going to help them in the 2022 midterms or the 2024 presidential campaign, this poll shows they are not near the top of the radar.

The top three issues, the poll showed, are Inflation at 40%, the economy in general at 29, and guns at 20%.

Women’s rights polled at 17 percent, which was a six point increase from the previous poll as it came a week after the Supreme Court decision to end Roe V Wade.

It came weeks after new polling data collected by the firm Civiqs found that Biden’s job approval has tanked to a stunningly low 32 percent this month, down from a nearly-as-bad 34 percent last month.

The new approval rating — less than one-third of Americans — is his lowest since taking office and among the worst showing for a U.S. president in modern history.

“A whopping 57 percent of respondents said they do not approve of Biden’s job performance,” One America News reported, citing the polling data.

“In addition to this, the president’s net approval ratings are now negative in 48 states, which is up from 47 states last month with the exception of Hawaii and Vermont. Biden now has a national net approval rating of -25 and most respondents are concerned about his poor handling of the economy,” the outlet added.

Meanwhile, the president as well as several of his administration officials are trying to pound home the talking point that there is no recession currently and there is nothing indicating that one is likely, contrary to a spate of reports and analysts who suggest otherwise.

Asked about the issue while he walked in the sand near his vacation home in Rehoboth Beach, Del., about economic experts “saying a recession is more likely than ever,” Biden clapped back on Saturday: “Not — the majority of them aren’t saying that. Come on, don’t make things up, OK?”

“Now you sound like a Republican politician,” the president went on to complain before appearing to realize how he came off, insisting, “I’m joking. That was a joke,” the New York Post reported.

“But all kidding aside, no, I don’t think it is [inevitable],” Biden said. “I was talking to [former Treasury Secretary] Larry Summers this morning and there’s nothing inevitable about a recession.”
