Those who choose to subject themselves to the roller coaster of political news and propaganda, will inevitably end up watching a playback of President Biden.
The seventy-nine-year-old declining senior citizen, who also happens to be the Chief Executive Officer of the most powerful nation on Earth, frequently appears lost, misspeaks, and/or says things that his handlers, I am sure, would prefer that he didn’t.
On Wednesday Joe once again “triggered” many on social media. This time when he proclaimed that students are the children of everyone when they’re in the classroom.
He made the comments at the White House during the 2022 National and State Teachers of the Year. The president and the first lady hosted the event, which gave him the opportunity to get himself in hot water just that much easier.
While Joe was speaking off the cuff and trying to empathize with the teachers, he said, “You’ve heard me say it many times about our children, but it’s true. They’re all our children, and the reason you’re the teachers of the year is that you recognize that,”
“They’re not somebody else’s children,” he claimed. “They’re like yours when they’re in the classroom.”
Biden’s statement comes at a bad time for his administration and the left overall, as many parents are actively fighting against local school boards that are implementing controversial policies they disagree with. They include Critical Race Theory (CRT), advanced sex-ed, LGBTQ+ gender lesson plans, and the promotion of transgenderism including allowing them to use bathrooms of their choice, even if not of their “assigned gender”.
Democrats are already struggling with voters over these issues. Especially in multiple U.S. House races located in moderate to conservative districts across the nation.
In a perfect example of what can happen, the Democratic establishment was rocked by what took place in Virginia last year. A parent-led revolt against the political establishment and social activists’ overreach, especially their collective attitude toward suppressing parental rights, drove huge numbers of parents to the polls.
As the result, Republican businessman Glenn Youngkin captured the governor’s office and Republican Winsome Sears won the lieutenant governor’s race, and Jason Miyares won the Attorney General election.
While Biden meant for his statement to express how much the government cares for children in schools, many on social media angrily rejected his formulation of ownership over children.
“How about no. My kids have had phenomenal teachers. They still didn’t treat them like their own, did not care about them like I care about them. Stop with this,” replied Karol Markowicz of the New York Post.
“Over my dead body is my child yours or anybody else’s,” responded activist Ashley St. Clair.

Christina Pushaw, the press secretary for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) went right after Biden, “No. No they aren’t. Creep,”

“No @POTUS they are MY children. They’ll never be yours or any teachers. This is a hill us mothers will die on,” read another popular tweet.
