Absolutely not. After 1 year, Trump was providing far more entertainment. I haven't heard a single thing about Biden here in UK.

I guess you don't even get Biden's interviews there in the UK then. There's no way all of his blunders aren't entertaining.

Oh I thought the point was to focus on the fact that Joe Biden was fake driving as clearly there was a 2nd wheel in that truck. But instead focus on your hate for the guy reporting it lol you guys are entertaining with your deflections.

My comment was about the fake driving. I didn't find it entertaining.. more like boring. Got any of him falling down and breaking a hip?

Yep totally agree Trump used to be on the news every day here for doing or saying something dumb. It was hilarious. I can't even remember the last time Biden was on the news for any reason at all.

Now every day we get BoJo on the news for doing or saying dumb shit or recently it's for being a party animal lol

It's called left.....wing.....media.....bias. If it benefits you you don't even blink an eye to it in fact you love it. But it's not reality. It's like Matrix red pill vs. blue pill keep taking the blue pill.

Biden has daily blunders there's plenty of videos out there and it's hilarious that some aren't even allowed to see it. He has full blown dementia.

Dementia is not a thing that should be made fun of though. It's a horrible condition that I have first hand experience with as my mum has it.

I don't follow US politics very closely, but from the little I've read on both Trump and Biden's executive orders, it feels like a mixed bag for me like it usually is. To be expected with a two party system, I guess.

As far as perception goes, I think Biden is far healthier for the public eye, obviously. Trump's celebrity status and shenanigans seemed to clearly hurt him and everyone else in the long run. I felt his COVID response was incredibly irresponsible, and his mouth got him into trouble more than I think it should have. Just seemed like a poor strategy for somebody in his position. Maybe in another political position it could work, but as a president I think choosing your words wisely is pretty major, since most of the world consumes this content through twitter and mainstream media outlets. He gave everyone way too much ammunition.

Biden comes across as non-confident and burnt out, but I think it'll be good to chill out from the Trump stuff for a while.

Strictly speaking on executive orders, though - they're kinda equal in my eyes. Both made efforts to help minority groups, which never gets talked about, and most presidents do this, I just wish media outlets would highlight that and some of the other good stuff these people do, even if they're sort of "no brainers".

I also like Biden's focus on investing in the future economy rather than quickly trying to boost it in the short term. Looking to build infrastructure for fossil fuel alternatives seems pretty huge, considering fuel will be running out relatively shortly. It's a greater short short economic cost, but for a greater return moving forward. I tend to lean conservative when it comes to fiscal policy, but I think investing in future infrastructure is just a wiser strategic move for keeping the economy strong, and preventing us from trying to make up for lost time down the road.

I could be off the mark on this stuff - like I said, I don't really follow it. But as your average US citizen that vaguely looks into it every now and then, that's my current perception.

It's more or less what I expected. I do however also believe we are beyond being able to vote our way back out of this mess. The Republican Party is full of traitors who are merely there to placate their conservative base with the bare minimum of pushback possible. I switched back to Independent for voter registration last year and don't really plan on participating in this corrupt system any longer, but I guess we'll see for sure once midterms draw near and the theater starts heating up again.

I'm just glad he's doing his job without scolding others, creating scandals or breaking new grounds of stupidity for no reason whatsoever.

To a degree it's pretty frightening that the organisers of the terrorist attack on capitol hill aren't behind bars yet (and worse: that some are still openly cheering it on). But that's just internal politics now. I'm not a fan of either democrats or republicans, so it's not my place to take sides.

Doing better than I expected but at the same time I wish we had more going for it given that a moderate democrat is as about as useful as an empty seat in congress. You can't get jack shit done when you are spending time trying to play nice with your opposition, which will reject your arse no matter how much you appeal to them based squarely on the fact that it will hurt you and your authority at the end of the day. Regardless of majority power or not.

Not really, Biden is just a do-nothing Democrat. He's not done anything about ICE (even promoted a new person to run it,) kids are still in cages, LGBT+ rights are still being threatened, trans rights are still constantly being stripped in many states, and just so much more. Biden is just another establishment Democrat and the only reason he's even moderately better than Trump is that Trump set the bar so low that anyone could get over it.

A lot of the problem with Biden's first term is that he has a 50-50 Senate, and there are two Democratic Senators who can't agree with the rest of the party to do much of anything meaningful. Things would be a lot different with a 60/40 or 52/48 Senate.

It may say more about how moderate former Democratic presidents were than anything else, and he's definitely no Sanders or Warren, but Biden is likely the most progressive Democratic president we've ever had.

Didn't take long for you guys to forget the Afghanistan withdrawal fuck up of the century.
Fair point. But for me the fuck up is more in the attempts to stay. So most of the blame goes to Bush and Obama, and to a lesser degree on Trump. It's just not fair to just blame the guy who doesn't look the other way.
Perhaps ionically, I'm blaming Bidden for this more from his time as vice president than now.

The issue is that there's still so much that either hasn't been done or shows no signs of them being addressed in the future. My issues stated are kind of the big ones but there are countless other ones. I know he has many years in office and I hope maybe I am wrong and the next three years he does make changes. But currently, I am disappointed that trans rights are still being threatened and disappointed that there are still kids in cages, both of which he doesn't seem to show any signs of caring to change any time soon

I sadly both agree with this statement, and weep for the future of humanity over it. Old rich white men may well be the death of us all, literally... That being said, he has the lowest bar to not hit ever, and he hasn't, so kudos for that.

I whole heatedly agree there it isn't biden'snot doing his job it's the GOP+ those 2 DINO'S fucking everything up the GOP axed that gerrymandering bill cause their scared of losing power but the real threat is a trump doomsday scenario (red congress + trump in office) think of it like this as you may know trump will pardon the rioters not out of pity he's probably gonna arm them and try again or if congress is red he could do as Xi did and abolish term limits (another scenario which has a high possibility of happening) but knowin how unhinged trump is he rather do a violent coup than to navigate a red congress I WARNED YOU ALL IN 2016 by electing him you sealed the USA's fate the first time we walked away pretty much with only hurt pride second time we won't be so lucky just remember that when pulling the lever in 2024
