Following President Joe Biden’s caustic address to the nation Thursday night, in which he asserted that tens of millions of Americans are trying to destroy democracy, Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana offered his two cents – as only he can. His response was epic!
Following Joe Biden’s divisie “Dark Brandon” Speech on Thursday, John Kennedy hit back hard at the President.
According to TownHall. Senator John Kennedy responded to Biden’s repeated attacks on “MAGA Forces” and “MAGA Republicans” saying that the president is working to drag America backwards.
Kennedy went further on Biden’s speech and said it “sounded like a long-winded description and definition of what Secretary Clinton called ‘deplorables.’ He also said that the issue Biden has with these hardworking patriotic Americans, is that they just don’t agree with President Biden’s neosocialist woke agenda. They don’t believe in bigger government, higher taxes, and more spending.

While some Democrats have hailed the President for his fiery speech, the apparent push to revitalize Biden’s image by embracing the Dark Brandon meme may pose difficulties for Democrats if he campaigns for re-election.
Newsweek Reports. According to poll tracker FiveThirtyEight, Biden’s approval rating stood at 42.7 percent on September 2. The disapproval rate was 52.8%.
Its tongue-in-cheek, Terminator-like imagery differs from the 79-year-old Biden’s usually more sedate social media presence and a long history of making “gaffes” that have been mocked and criticised.
At the time of the next presidential election, Biden will be 81 years old, and while former President Donald Trump is still the preferred candidate for the Republican nomination in 2024.
DeSantis often comes second to Trump in recent Republican polling, and he is widely seen as a potential presidential candidate. In the next presidential election, he will be just 45-years-old and could appeal to a younger demographic.
In spite of the current boost in Biden’s approval and the success of the Dark Brandon meme, president Trump faces the possibility of being unsettled by a younger, non-Trump GOP candidate.
The president is expected to seek a second term in 2024, despite no official announcement from Biden, Trump, or DeSantis.
In addition, the president’s habit of making gaffes, flubs, or offhand remarks may damage the Dark Brandon image and result in the current trend losing its effectiveness.
Considering the speed with which online trends come and go, it remains to be seen how long the Dark Brandon meme will last. Moreover, according to FiveThirtyEight, the trend is unlikely to survive major midterm losses for Democrats.
At a time when Biden’s approval rating is so low, he needs to unify the country and bring people together, not alienate potential voters. John Kennedy is right that people are rejecting Biden’s divisive rhetoric and it’s going to prove harmful to Biden’s future election prospect.
