Media praises Biden for ‘low-key’ response to Texas winter storms

The mainstream media continues to carry water for President Joe Biden as he faces the first natural disaster of his presidency.

The Washington Post praised Biden’s so-called “low-key” response to the winter storm in Texas that left millions without power while killing some 30 or more people, Breitbart reported.

Biden does nothing, gets praised

Texans were left in the dark, desperately searching for heat, food, and clean water last week as the terrible storm pummeled the South. Crops were wiped out; livestock — and some people — froze to death. As the heartbreaking tragedy unfolded, however, Biden was nowhere to be found.

He did not comment on the storm until Thursday, and it did not pass through his mind at a town hall with CNN on Tuesday. Some of his allies, however, are characterizing his approach as a strength, with Jeff Bezos’ personal blog, The Washington Post, praising Biden for being “low-key.”

“[Biden] has not visited the stricken region or delivered prime-time remarks; he did not mention the disaster at a recent town hall; and he is studiously avoiding the controversy over whether wind energy or fossil fuels are to blame for widespread power failures,” the Post reported.

The Post also contrasted Biden’s muted reaction positively with Trump’s “hostile” tendency to be the “center of attention” during emergencies.

“[Trump] famously tossed paper towels to hurricane victims, excoriated Californians for ‘gross mismanagement’ of forests and called Puerto Rican leaders ‘corrupt and incompetent’ for their handling of aid money,” the paper wrote.

“Almost absent”

One could be generous and, as the Post does, credit this to a change in style. Biden is not, to put it charitably, as energetic as Trump. But it’s one thing to have a big personality, and another to be a ghost.

The Post tries to spin Biden’s absence as the mere preference of a more diplomatic and professional personality. But many are liable to see this as just the latest example of the media lowering the bar for a president perceived by many as senile and unable to execute the responsibilities of his office effectively.

The paper comes close to acknowledging the elephant in the room, too. “While Biden has won praise for his quieter, more businesslike approach, he is also running the risk that he — and the federal government — can appear almost absent.” No kidding.

To his credit, Biden has approved disaster aid, albeit for only 77 out of 254 counties, and the White House says he may visit the Lone Star state this week. But that is surely a minimum.

Meanwhile, the pain is only beginning for Texas, where at least 30 have died, as the state reckons with the biggest insurance claim event in its history.

  2. Well that’s Joe Biden for you he doesn’t give a crap about the American people at all. He should be charged with murder for the death of those 30 people because he ordered the fossil fuel companies to only give them 30% during that storm.

    1. I agree with you 100%. Joe Biden and the dems prove time time again that the hate all American citizens. Please people remember this for the next election in 2022 and 2024.

      1. Yes, but if Biden has his fraud crew on hand the election will be stolen again. Something has to be done about the fraud in the last election that Biden himself told us he had set up. I still have the picture of Biden telling us about the most extensive fraud ever he had set up/

    2. Stop worrying about whether he cares about the American people start figuring how and when we can replace him. We all know what him and the democratic party are. We have to start getting them replaced in every election any where they run.

      1. Don’t you think that the dems are already planning their strategy on how to cheat and get away with it in 2022 and beyond? Give me a break! After seeing how they executed the coup election on Trump and got away with it, no future elections will prevent their cheating. They even had the SCOTUS on their side. And besides, the coup election has turned off millions of GOP voters from ever voting again.

  4. What do we expect from someone who knows his election was false and he’s too incompetent to find his butt with both hands!! How in the world could this thief and molester know the difference between honest need and demand?!?

  5. It appears that Biden has little for USA Citizens.
    He has little knowledge knowledge on how how to run our nation and the people he chose for his cabinet are as dumb as he is.

  6. He is heartless.! I have family spread around Texas and most suffered with blackouts & water issues…I will NOT support Biden in any way shape or form. He just does not care about anything but his own agenda. God help us!!!

    1. he is incompetent and is destroying our country-WHO is in collusion with china and biden joins them- the paris agreement does nothing but take money and biden joins them-many thousands lost their jobs with the keystone pipeline due to biden’s executive order- the wall is stopped so we can enjoy many caravans coming through-no covid teating and they will get health care and other hand-0uts at the tax payers expense.harris is now talking with foreign leaders- guess she is getting ready to take over.

  7. I often wonder about how many lives will be lost while bidden is President with his mental health medical problem that he has. He is already making bad decision with our well being , our safety , and our ways to protect our freedom. SOME ONE should SPEAK UP before it to late to correct any of HIS BAD IDEA’S. I just hope that our Country has some sort of fail safe back up system in our Constitution to prevent something like this from happening in America.

  8. The Corrupt Democrats and China are taken over country to the point that if nothing is done to stop it , than America will no more be a free country. Then it will be up to the Armed forces of America to determine which direction our country and its people should go. Remember that our Armed forces parents are those Americans they are protecting.

  9. Its all bidens fault. everyone in texas that died. He makes me sick. HE WILL DESTROY THIS COUNTRY AND GET RICHER DOING IT. HIM HIS FAMILY PIGLOSI AND C***T HARRIS. WAKE UP PEOPLE.

  10. Joe Biden and his friends Democrats, the only friends they have is each other and they are quickly wareing out their welcome. President Trump gave America some pride, this jerk, there is nothing there, here dogy dogy.

  11. One of the smartest things that the American people could do would be to quit listening to the media! Most of the media in this country is being controlled by the communists, and that is what they give you, communist BS! Biden can do no wrong, according to the media! He could could crap his pants, and the media would put a positive spin on it, while everything that is wrong in this country is somehow Trump’s fault!

  12. No accountability in the Biden’s Administration.
    Look at Biden’s daily Itinerary.
    He’s done at 3:00P.M. most days.

  13. Biden didn’t go earlier for two reasons;
    1. He just heard about it.
    2. He needed permission to go into another Country.

  14. Biden was the one who told Texas’ power companies to power down & caused a lot of people to freeze to death. I wouldn’t show my face if I were him in Texas either! He is showing how much he cares for unity, already pissed off Florida & now Texas, wonder what Rep. state is next!!

  15. This is not sad. This is a disgrace! Politics have no place at times of disaster…. this is called callousness …. I am shocked that the fake media ( the mouthpiece) of this fake government is applauding it….. downright appalling!!!!
