I was watching President Biden speak at a rally today,

and it struck me how clear, sharp and strong his voice was after all the public speaking he has done lately. Many on the campaign trail are starting to lose their voices somewhat. I know I would be. Remarkable for someone his age. Good for him.

Colbert spends most of every monologue tearing tfg and the repubs new assholes

He is clearly a huge democratic fan

If the president can handle Putin I am pretty sure he doesn’t mind a little teasing wether it’s about his age, sunglasses or long winded stories.

Or about ice cream lol

The bigger the accomplishment, the bigger the ice cream treat

He made no bones about not supporting Biden on the primaries. It’s time To support.


He can go back to his stale ageist jokes after the election.

They made no bones about not originally supporting Biden, but granted that Biden is a decent human.

When Colbert is “on” he’s better than anyone. But I can also call his Biden jokes stale, lame and for me totally inappropriate for this period in history.

rather than yelling at them. That is a huge plus in many dimensions.

I love Joe Biden!
