In a surprising twist, a liberal comedian finally breaks rank to roast President Biden, revealing cracks in the once-unified support for the current administration.
Late-night comedians once routinely roasted all presidents, regardless of party affiliation. However, the trend shifted during former President Donald Trump’s tenure. So when
Late-night comedians once routinely roasted all presidents, regardless of party affiliation. However, the trend shifted during former President Donald Trump’s tenure. So when Jimmy Kimmel targeted “Grandpa Joe” Biden, who announced his reelection campaign at 82, it was a noteworthy event. Kimmel amusingly mocked Biden’s age and odd whispering during press conferences, comparing the race between Trump and Biden to a society run by elderly gorillas.
Interestingly, President Biden is not running unopposed for the Democratic nomination, which is unusual for an incumbent. Biden’s age, along with the nation’s mounting challenges – high inflation, an unstable border, soaring interest rates, and increasing crime and homelessness in major cities – have contributed to a political landscape far from ordinary. Americans are more politically divided than ever, and the ongoing culture war between left and right only exacerbates the situation.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a member of the storied Democratic political family, is one of the challengers for the 2024 Democratic nomination. In a surprising development, an exclusive USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll found that RFK Jr. already has the support of 14% of voters who backed President Biden in 2020. Despite his current reputation as an advocate for a discredited conspiracy theory linking childhood vaccines to autism, Kennedy has made a strong start.

USA Today poll finds RFK Jr with 14% support among 2020 Biden voters in challenge to Biden. ‘Findings underscore Biden’s potential vulnerability to a more mainstream challenger for the Democratic nomination…’ https://t.co/SqdPTRqc5x

The poll, conducted between Saturday and Tuesday, revealed that only 67% of Biden’s 2020 supporters plan to support him for the Democratic nomination, while Kennedy secured 14%, and Marianne Williamson, a self-help author, and previous nominee contender, received 5%. Additionally, 13% of respondents were undecided. The poll, which involved 600 individuals who voted for Biden, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
The results indicate that Biden could be vulnerable to a more conventional opponent in the Democratic nomination race, even though no top challenger has emerged yet. Moreover, the findings suggest that a third-party candidate might pose a threat to him in the general election.
David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center, told USA Today, “Kennedy, although a long shot at this point, starts in double digits and can’t be ignored.”
