By some of your standards, and I’m being 100% serious here, it’s not even possible to have a “good” US president by the very definition of the job.

well yes! being an US president is inherently vile lol, for ppl living outside of the US (especially in the global south) biden is definitely not the lesser of two evils he's just a different kind of evil 

a US president, regardless of political party, wont think twice before carpet bombing a """third world""" country if that said nation gets in the pax americana's way

I will still vote for Biden over Trump because he is the lesser evil but I think fewer and fewer liberals want to be seen as jumping into bed with such a compromised president. The blowback on social media from pro palestine supporters for artists who have gone to the WH has been intense and Chappell is smart to avoid that

Yeah, this is exactly it. What she’s doing here is largely performative, not particularly damaging to the Biden admin, is completely understandable given the optics, and I think, more than anything, stokes a feeling of inspiration within her fanbase to continue to fight for what they believe in. An exciting nothing burger, but kind of a nothing burger all the same (which is why I think it’s kind of funny to see people up in arms about it, she’s basically just play acting political activism lmao).

A nothing burger that could turn other people off from ordering at the drive thru 🗳️ 

so she needs to be consider cautiousness, if only for other people’s sake.

No offense but are you voting for Trump then? 'cause that's the only other choice.

In the interest of fairness and communication, I’ll bite.

You claim to be more “educated” on important issues than some of your GGD peers.

Prove it.

Prove me wrong: demonstrate that you are not a performative, short-sighted, single-issue voter

and a reckless agent of chaos.

prove it (if you can).

1. Inflation rates hit a 40 year high last week, coming in at 9.1%. The cost of everyday staples also increased. The price of eggs went up 33.1%, meat 8.2%, gasoline 59.9%, used cars 7.1% and air travel 34.1%. This is all in addition to supply shortages. Yet as the economy is flashing huge red warning signs, President Joe Biden and his administration are telling us something different.

Joe Biden: Look, here's where we are. We have the fastest growing economy in the world, the world, the world. We have 8.6 million new jobs just since I got in an office. Unemployment rates down to 3.6%. We've reduced the deficit last year by $320 billion, this year going to reduce it by $1.7 trillion dollars, trillion dollars.

 

2. 

What Biden Said: “The Russian military has been decimated. You don’t write about that. It’s been freaking decimated.”

The Facts: This is a fair assessment, according to a Reuters report on a declassified U.S. intelligence assessment provided to Congress. The intelligence determined that Russia had 360,000 active military personnel when it invaded Ukraine in February of 2022. By December of last year, 315,000 Russian troops had been either killed or injured in the war—a reduction in troop strength by 87%.

What Biden Said: "We spent a lot of money in Ukraine, but Europe has spent more money than the United States has, collectively."

The Facts: The European Union has provided over $107 billion dollars in financial, military, humanitarian, and refugee assistance since the war in Ukraine began, as of April 24. Comparatively, Congress has authorized the United States to provide up to $175 billion to support Ukraine, and has provided the country approximately $81 billion since the Russian invasion, according to the White House.

 

3. 

What Biden Said: I spent a month in Ukraine when I was a Senator and Vice President.

The Facts: Biden’s trips to Ukraine include six he made as Vice President—more than any previous President or Vice President. He was also involved in Ukraine during his 36 years as a US Senator. He sponsored or co-sponsored 39 pieces of legislation in support of Ukraine, and worked on issues involving Ukraine as a longtime member of the Foreign Relations Committee, including 12 years as chairman or ranking member.

 

4. 

What Biden Said: "Japan [is] devoting 3% of its GDP to defense..."

The Facts: Japan aims to spend 2% of its GDP on defense by 2027, according to a statement by Prime Minister Kishida Fumio. From 1960 to 2022, Japan’s defense spending was 1% of GDP or lower.

5. What Biden Said: "I put together a Quad that never existed before."

The Facts: The Quadrilateral Security Dialogue, known as the Quad, is a partnership between the US, Japan, Australia and India that began in 2004, following the Indian ocean tsunami. The group was formalized by then-Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in 2007, but was inactive until reforming in 2017. The Quad’s first in-person summit was held at the White House in Sept. 2021, during Biden’s first year as President.

6. What Biden Said: “Wage increases have exceeded what the cost of inflation…”

The Facts: New data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows hourly wage growth topping inflation for the past 12 months. In April, nominal hourly earnings were up 3.9% from a year ago; inflation held at 3.4%. But cumulative inflation has outpaced wage growth for most of the Biden presidency.

7. What Biden Said: “I remember when I was heading to Taiwan, excuse me, to South Korea, to reclaim the chips industry that we had gotten $865 billion in private-sector investment, private-sector investments since I’ve been in. Name me a president who’s done that.”

The Facts: The White House announced an $866 billion private-sector investment in May, not when Biden went to South Korea in 2022. The funding was also meant for initiatives across clean energy and manufacturing industries, and is not limited to just the chips industry.

8. What Biden Said: “There are going to be a billion people in Africa in the next several years.”

The Facts: Africa’s total population already exceeds one billion people—an estimated 1.4 billion people live on the continent. That number is expected to reach nearly 2.5 billion by 2050, according to the United Nations.

9. What Biden Said: “I mean, that line that Macron used, and it says that…I was making notes for this. It said, Macron, they know the experience of brain death unlike anytime. Because lack of US leadership, we should reassess the reality of NATO in light of the lack of US leadership.”

The Facts: Biden appears to be referencing what French President Emmanuel Macron said in a October 2019 interview with The Economist, in which he warned that European countries could no longer rely on the United States to come to the defense of NATO allies. “What we are currently experiencing is the brain death of NATO,” he said, adding that the alliance “only works if the guarantor of last resort functions as such. I’d argue that we should reassess the reality of what NATO is in the light of the commitment of the United States.”

 

 

And those are only the handful of him and his misinformation and blatant lies. And don't get me started about what he did and said about Palestine. He's equally as bad as Trump. Trump is a blatant scum exposed but Biden acts and behaves like a wolf in a sheep's clothing.

Oh and also this about him being an activist from a very young age. It was all lies.

 

For decades, Mr. Biden has occasionally suggested that he played a greater role in the civil rights movement than he actually did. While there is corroboration of Mr. Biden’s participation in a few desegregation events, he has also said he would not consider himself an activist in the movement. There is no evidence that he was ever arrested.

The White House said that there are countless moments in any person’s life that local newspapers opt not to cover and that Mr. Biden was proud to have stood up against segregation in his youth.

The Washington Post detailed several other instances of the anecdote Mr. Biden is relaying, through his mother, of his arrest as a teenager while protesting for civil rights. In some cases, Mr. Biden has said he was 13 or that the police brought him home.

 

 

There's no proof of anything he's been saying about that lol. He's just using hyperbole to please his voters.

I appreciate you using Google to bring me these facts (truly, no BS).

If only for taking time out of your day to do so.

But, in spite of all that convenient Googling, one thing is certain:

 

You have not helped ANYTHING today. I do not mean that in a cruel way, I mean it in a literal way.

You point out that Biden's flaws as a politician.

K. What can we do about THAT right now? Answer that question for me, please- genuinely.

 

I know what we CAN do!

-We NOT TALK SH*T about Biden

-We can VOTE for him (to keep Trump out of power)

-and THEN, once things are relatively safe,

we can hold Biden’s feet to the fire (so to speak),

compelling him to do our bidding as a public servant.

 

There is too much at stake to play 🍎s and 🍊s.

Regardless if you are an American or not,

YOU DO NOT want Trump having power

over you or your loved ones again.

If you thought he was dangerous before,

you have seen nothing yet. He will return with a vengeance,

and better insight about how to abuse his power.

He will never be a public servant. Many of us will become HIS servants.

 

It is not rocket science.

It is not even political science.

It is common sense.

 

Please be careful and be smart,

you never know who you are influencing,

and the ripple effects you could create.

💚

Odd to take this stance against the most pro-LGBTQ+ administration in our nation's history, especially in such a fraught and dangerous election year... The great thing about democracy is that you can make this kind of statement in the first place, but I'm not sure about the logic here.

Well it may be pro in spirit but there’s a LOT of rollbacks of rights rn for women and queer folks. I’d say it’s a stretch to say this is a Palestinian stance.

i think the logic is framing herself as against “the man” as Gaga did but without saying a tremendously large amount. It’s marketing lmao
