For the first time since former President Bill Clinton was in office, Democrats are under media scrutiny, and it’s breaking them.

Americans have known for years that regime media acts as the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party. Every story and narrative is carefully crafted to ensure they look like a rose while painting Republicans as angry, out-of-touch fascists. However, since the debate, the regime has been turning on President Biden and his administration for the first time in recent memory, and it’s obvious they are unprepared to handle adversarial media.

Journalists were waiting on Monday as First Lady Jill Biden exited Tampa’s Kahwa Coffee to ask her a pretty straightforward question about House Democrats’ demand that Biden drop out and let another Democrat take his place.

“Dr. Biden, do you have any message to House Democrats who are calling for your husband to drop out of the race? How are you feeling about the state of the race,” they asked.

“Why are you screaming at me? You know me. Don’t scream at me, just let me talk,” she responded.

Their questions were hardly combative. They didn’t even include insults about Biden’s declining cognitive issues. Still, the First Lady seemed shocked that they would be asking her about the top narrative circulating the news cycle as if that’s not what they are allowed to do to a Democrat.

Biden’s White House press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, also faced pushback in the briefing room Monday on Biden’s supposed meetings with a top Parkinson’s doctor, which, of course, ended with her claiming to be the victim.

“I do want to — I just want to take a step back for a second because I do take offense to what Ed alluded to. You know, come out here every day there’s a press briefing. And we do our best to give you the information that we have at the time. … That is what is important — to have that healthy back-and-forth, and so, to say that I’m holding information or allude to anything else is not unfair — is really, really unfair,” she said. ”

“I think people who are watching and have been watching this briefing for this past week could say that we are doing our best in this briefing to provide by the information that we have. And I will admit — I will be the first one to admit sometimes, I get it wrong. I at least I admit that. At least, I admit that. And sometimes, I don’t have the information, and I will always, always admit that, but I do take offense to what was just happening at the beginning of this briefing. It’s not okay,” she added.

“IT’S NOT OKAY!” What a laughable situation they’ve found themselves in. Not once in former President Trump’s campaign or presidency did he have the media give him the benefit of the doubt. In fact, it’s not their place to do that. A journalist’s job is to call powerful people out on issues that stray from the American people. And having a man with obvious severe mental health issues is a pretty important narrative that they should be asking about. (Presidential Debate Was The First Step In A Coup Against Joe Biden)

Trump faced far worse than journalists who were “just doing their jobs.” He was forced to fight adversaries in the regime media and establishment politicians to do the work the American people hired him to do. Trump was handicapped every step of the way. The Bidens, on the other hand, were granted immunity from hard questions. Everything he and his administration did to destroy this country went unchecked by the people tasked to hold him accountable.

The debate changed this for him. The elites writing checks want him out. So now the regime, like the good NPC followers they are, has turned on this administration. The result is causing the walls they’ve built up to crumble around them. They can’t even handle the smallest amount of pushback because they’ve never experienced it before.
