Just How Brutal Has August Been for Biden?

We all have bad days, weeks, or even years. For President Joe Biden, he’s had a particularly bad month.

As Fox News commentator Jim Nells recently suggested, Biden’s actually had a “terrible, horrible, no good, very bad month.”

August started as most months do for Biden: gaffes here, gaffes there. In one instance, he referred to the Grand Canyon as one of the “nine wonders” of the world. In another, he declared a national emergency due to climate change.

Then he jumped down a reporter’s throat for correctly referring to Fumio Kishida as the Prime Minister of Japan. Biden addressed him as the president.

Of course, things only got worse from there…

It was found out that, for all of Biden’s bragging about being for women and equal pay, his White House actually pays women an average of 20 cents less than their male counterparts. According to The Wall Street Journal, women make only about 80 cents for every dollar paid to men.

And then there is all this drama and problems with Biden’s son Hunter.

As you know, Hunter has always been a bit of a bad egg. But now, his criminal dealings are starting to involve his father.

For starters, should Hunter be charged with any crime, Politico says that his legal team would want to summon the elder Biden to court to testify on his son’s behalf.

Biden allegedly also knows who brought the infamous bag of cocaine into the White House, and yes, it was someone in the inner “Biden family orbit,” according to the New York Post.

And if that wasn’t bad enough, it’s now been revealed that the president has been using aliases for years, some in connection with Hunter’s not-so-legal affairs. So far, about 5,400 emails and electronic records seem to contain these pseudonyms.

Rounding it all out and making this about the worst month Biden’s ever seen is his disastrous and shameful handling of the wildfires in Maui. While whole towns burned and people died, Biden went on vacation. Then he offered them a measly $700 pittance on the same day he sent billions to Ukraine.

To summarize, August has not been good for Biden. And the coming months may not fare much better.
