These lefties aren’t blind to what is going on; instead, they’ve chosen—until now—to be silent about it
There seems to be a shift happening in leftie world. Not only is Bill Maher pointing out how radical and completely off-putting the regressive left has become, but now Trevor Noah and Saturday Night Live are taking potshots at Joe “I am the Democratic Party” Biden.
There seemed to be some kind of unspoken (or unpublicized) “hands off” the Biden administration pact among all leftwingers, up to and including the once irreverent SNL.
They recently did a skit about the ridiculous nature of the covid mandates and mask hypocrisy, but this time they took aim at the Biden admin directly and mocked their ludicrous TikTok “influencers” summit on the Ukraine war.
Yes, that was an actual thing.
Last month The Guardian proclaimed the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine “the first TikTok war,” highlighting Russian celebrities using the platform to speak out against Putin, and Ukrainians placing themselves in harm’s way to put the horrors of war on full display.
If there remained any doubt that the Ukrainian conflict is, indeed, the first TikTok war, it evaporated this week. Vice dropped an investigative piece on a campaign it unearthed “to pay Russian TikTok influencers to post videos pushing pro-Kremlin narratives about the war in Ukraine.”
And the White House seemingly countered, holding a Zoom briefing on Ukraine for 30 TikTok stars, who received updates from National Security Council staffers and Jen Psaki, White House press secretary, The Washington Post reported.
I guess that was just too much even for the slathering Democrat fanbois at SNL because they turned out a skit about it that is devastating to the Biden administration.
Incredibly, they actually mention the Hunter Biden laptop scandal, including name-dropping Burisma; I would not be surprised if this is the first mention that much of the SNL audience has ever heard of the New York Post scoop.
Watch the whole thing:
Granted, the person portraying Biden appears far too lucid here, no wild lies about his storming the beaches of Normandy during his run for the Scranton Senate, no little girls around to sniff, and no weird whispering, but this is leaps and bounds in 21st century terms in daring to mock any Democrat, let alone their sitting president.
Trevor Noah took on the other bit of news that is under-reported: leaders of nations Biden is begging for the oil and gas he’s shut down in the U.S. are literally not taking his phone calls.
The de-facto leaders of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have declined to arrange calls with US president Joe Biden in recent weeks as the US and its allies have sought to contain a surge in energy prices caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
According to the Wall Street Journal, citing Middle East and US officials, both Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the UAE’s Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan have been unavailable to Biden after US requests were made for discussions.
The ideological fantasists in the Biden admin (up to and including “the big guy” himself) cannot grasp that it is beyond stupid to cut off our own oil and gas so that we can “transition” to green energy . . . while importing the oil and gas we require from foreign, often indifferent or outright hostile, countries.
Biden, it should be noted, promised to destroy our energy sector during the 2020 presidential campaign . . . and people (who are not me) voted for him anyway.

It’s the dumbest foreign, economic, and energy policy since the Carter days of malaise and just accepting the “new normal” of record gas prices under Obama. Americans didn’t accept it in the 1970s, we didn’t accept it when the Obama-Biden administration assured us that gas prices would never again go below $4/gal, and we aren’t about to accept it now.
Maybe even Noah is fed up with the Biden administration being a global laughingstock, neither respected nor feared. Just ignored, laughed at, disdained, and shoved aside.
This is worth watching to the end, Noah’s Trump impression isn’t half-bad, and he appears to get that Trump’s swagger got results, including as Maher noted, Russia waiting until Trump was out of the White House to invade Ukraine.
Looks like even Trevor Noah is getting tired of Biden. He's right, Trump wouldn't take crap from anyone but Biden is the laughing stock of international politics.pic.twitter.com/MxwVwQYI7X

I haven’t seen anything yet about these pieces being banned on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and it’s certainly too early to tell if the floodgates will open and it’s now acceptable to mock the Biden administration.
Even if we never see this sort of thing again, it’s worth noting that these lefties aren’t blind to what is going on nor to how terrible the failed Biden administration is; instead, they’ve chosen—until now—to be silent about it.DONATE
