Biden On Jimmy Kimmel

Biden takes aim at Republicans, Trump during appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'


President Joe Biden appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" for his first network interview in 118 days on Wednesday night.


The president kicked off his first in-person appearance on a late-night talk show by discussing gun control efforts with comedian and host Jimmy Kimmel. Biden wasted no time in taking aim at Republicans saying, "A lot of it is intimidation by the NRA. Look, this is not your father's Republican Party. This is a MAGA party."


The president talked about his recent trip to Uvalde, Texas, where 19 children and two teachers were gunned down at Robb Elementary school.


"I met with every single family member of all those kids killed, and those teachers killed down in Uvalde, Texas," Biden said. "The stories they told and the pain you could see on their faces."

Kimmel then questioned Biden about the possibility of issuing an executive order on gun control, saying former President Donald Trump "passed those out like Halloween candy."


The president responded, "I have issued executive orders within the power of the presidency to be able to deal with everything having to do with guns, gun ownership… all of the things that are within my power."


He went on to accuse Trump of abusing the constitution, saying he doesn't want to "emulate" his predecessor.


"But what I don’t want to do, and I’m not being facetious, I don’t want to emulate Trump’s abuse of the constitution and constitutional authority," Biden said.


The president then accused Republicans of placing democracy in jeopardy.


"I often get asked, 'the Republican's don't play it square, why do you play it square?'" Biden said. "If we do the same thing they do, our democracy would literally be in jeopardy. That's not a joke!"

Kimmel then expressed to the president how he thinks Democrats are frustrated because they won the House, Senate and White house and have made very little progress when it comes to guns, reproductive rights, voting rights and climate change, saying "in some ways we've moved backwards."


Biden responded by claiming "we've actually made some real moves" when it comes to climate change. He cited efforts to push solar and wind energy, as well as electric vehicles.


The president then painted a positive picture of the current economic conditions in the U.S., despite the fact Americans are facing record-high inflation and soaring gas prices.


"Here's where we are," he said. "We have the fastest growing economy in the world. We have 8.6 million new jobs since I got into office. Unemployment rate's down to 3.6%. We reduced the deficit last year by $320 billion. This year we're gonna reduce it by $1.7 trillion."


He admitted that inflation is "the bane of our existence," and suggested he wants to work to lower the cost of healthcare, prescription drugs and childcare.


Biden told Kimmel he has never been so optimistic in his life, saying American children are the best educated, the least prejudice and most giving generation in American history.


BIDEN GOES MORE THAN 100 DAYS WITHOUT MAINSTREAM MEDIA INTERVIEW: ‘HIS HANDLERS ARE PETRIFIED'


The interview wrapped up with Biden and Kimmel discussing the forthcoming U.S. Supreme Court decision that may overturn landmark abortion case Roe v. Wade. Biden said he doesn't think "the country will stand for it" if the high court overrules Roe, and hinted that there are some executive orders that he could employ to counteract the outcome. He did not offer any further details about the potential executive orders.


Biden said if the Supreme Court overrules Roe v. Wade and states begin to impose limitations on abortion, it will cause a "mini revolution." He said many people could get voted out of office.


First lady Jill Biden accompanied the president to the taping of the show. She was seen in the live studio audience wearing a mask and sitting alongside several other members of the Biden family.


BIDEN'S PRESS OFFICE PLAGUED BY NEGATIVE COVERAGE, MESSAGING GAFFES AS MEDIA SIGNALS ‘HONEYMOON IS OVER’


Biden's appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" comes amid a perilous time for his presidency. Biden's approval rating dipped to 39% towards the end of May in an AP-NORC poll, his worst mark since entering the White House. An ABC-IPSOS poll published Sunday found that just 28% of Americans approve of Biden's handling of inflation and 27% approve of his response to rising gas prices.


An AP poll from the same time last year showed the president having an approval rating of 63%, which was 24 points higher than his May 2022 rating.


Prior to Wednesday's interview with Kimmel, the president joined NBC's Lester Holt on Feb. 10 prior to the Super Bowl, which marked his last major media appearance, nearly four months ago to the day. Biden then did two other friendly interviews, sitting down with historian Heather Cox Richardson and progressive YouTube host Brian Tyler Cohen at the end of February.

The article mentions that Biden's approval rating has fallen to 39%. Geez, I don't think it's a coincidence that 39% voted to keep Boudin as the DA in SF. Apparently about 4 out of evry 10 voters in America are lost causes who have bought the Left's agenda and will stick by them no matter how clear it is to everyone that it is a major mistake. Actually, the percentage of all Americans this far in the Leftie tank is probably in the low 40% range. You have to add people who can't get photo IDs and/or find the polls and felons (at least for now) to their total of diehard supporters. Scary isn't it?

The other thing I noticed is that Biden has a knack of accusing Republicans of the very worst things he and the Left are doing, Using abusive Executive orders? Ignoring the Constitution and refusal to enforce laws? Inciting civil unrest? C'mon, man...Next we'll see Schumer giving a highly praised speech about Trump inciting the Jan 6 "attack" on the Capitol.

Soc/Dem rule for governance: do as we say, not as we do..... LOL

Its called projection, they project precisely what they are doing on their political opponents. Biden is a master at this. The only one colluding with Russians, was Hillary and so on.

Kimmel might as well have started to suck Biden's d#$*.

Just one example: Kimmel asks why Biden doesn't issue executive order on guns. Biden responds by saying he didn't want to abuse the constitution like Trump.

Here are the facts:
  • Biden is averaging 67 executive orders per year compared to 55 for Trump.
  • Biden recently issued an EO to outlaw ghost guns.
  • The only reason Biden isn't doing more with EOs is that it would be unconstitutional.
Kimmel and his libtard viewers accept the lies as facts.

What an embarrassment today's left is. Imagine if President Trump had gone almost a third of a year without giving a network interview and then only agreed to go on the Greg Guttfeld Show (which people actually watch).

Democrats would have hounded him mercilessly and yet their own guy can't answer actual questions from reporters and *crickets from them. They know their side is a complete joke. Except no one is laughing.

White House just announced that the Biden's next interview will be with a classroom of first graders where you can expect such hard hitting questions as "How old are you?" and "What's your favorite color?".

I have no doubt that he will stumble on that second one with some mush-mouth gibberish.
