President Biden closed his remarks at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner by donning his aviators and introducing the world to Dark Brandon.
When Biden introduced comedian Roy Wood Jr., he said, “I will turn this over to him Roy Roy, the stage is yours. I will be fine with you Jokes, but I’m not sure about Dark Brandon.
Joe Biden is the kind of guy who goes to church, rides his bike with his grandkids, and eats ice cream on the weekends.
Dark Brandon is the guy on live television that Republicans agreed not to cut Social Security and Medicare during the State of the Union.
Kevin McCarthy thinks he can force Joe Biden to cut spending in the debt ceiling negotiations. But the person really arguing is Dark Brandon.
The Dark Brandon meme stuck because there was truth behind it. The media and Republicans have underestimated Joe Biden.
President Biden plays the good old man who likes bipartisanship and tells lots of stories about his parents and Delaware, but underneath it all is a successful politician of more than 50 years.
The media and Republicans seem to be making the same mistake and underestimating Biden going into 2024, which could set up a dark Brandon for another four years in the White House.
