After year of Biden, Trump doesn’t seem so bad

Back in 2015 when President Trump was still a presidential candidate, a friend of mine said to another friend, “Trump’s scary isn’t he?” and then the other friend three months — three months — into Trump’s presidency started listing things that Trump said he was going to do but hadn’t. “Trump said he was going to build the wall and he hasn’t.” “Trump said he was going to eradicate the covid virus and he hasn’t.” Those are just a couple of the things my friend complained about.

Now Biden, is in the first year of his presidency and let’s see what he has done or not done. Remember this, “I’m going to get rid of the virus.” despite having all the tools to do so, vaccines, testing; how’s that going? Gas prices under President Trump were $2.50 a gallon on average, now, under Biden their over $4 a gallon, minimum. Been to the grocery store lately? Disastrous. That’s if they even have product on the shelf. Those are just a couple things about Biden’s presidency after a year.

And what am I hearing from my two friends? Crickets. Not a word about how Biden is failing. But then again I wouldn’t want to admit that I voted for Biden either. You see, actually, this is what you get when you vote against someone, rather than for someone.

Enjoy the next three years people.
