This past Wednesday, Don Lemon, an anchor for CNN, openly admitted that Democratic candidates all over the nation have made it quite clear that they just do not “want to be seen” anywhere near Old Uncle Joe.
Lemon along with his brand new morning co-hosts Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins put out a response on Wednesday to a recently made public poll — which spotlights another large drop in the overall popularity for President Biden to go along with worrying numbers for quite a few other Democrat-incumbent seats throughout both the Senate and the House — and Lemon went on to state that the one person that these struggling Dems could not afford to be seen with on the campaign trail was none other than the current president himself.

Collins kicked things off by stating that the rapidly freefalling numbers for the president were “a big factor” in setting Biden’s light campaign-stop schedule.
“He is not going to the places that you’re seeing former President Obama go to,” Collins went on. “It’s because of that approval rating.”
“And a lot of people are not … you know, they don’t want to be seen with the president, quite frankly, and they don’t even want to answer the question about whether they should be running with him, or having him on the campaign trail, or if they’ll support him come 2024,” expressed Lemon while agreeing.
Whether or not Democrats wish to be associated with President Biden out on the campaign trail has been a highly debated topic over the past few weeks, and one question on the topic resulted in Biden angrily scolding a member of the press while speaking on the White House lawn.

“John Fetterman’s gonna appear with you today in Pennsylvania, but there haven’t been that many candidates campaigning with you —” started a reporter before Biden shouted down to interrupt.
“That’s not true! There’ve been 15,” exclaimed Biden, reaching off screen and seemingly putting his hands on the reporter who spoke. “Count kid, count!”
The various appearances from Biden, despite being far fewer than would normally be expected from a sitting president, have been punctuated with falsehoods and mistakes that have on average gone unnoticed or otherwise ignored by members of the modern media.
“This won’t shock anyone, but the three major broadcast networks morning shows — ABC’s @GMA, @CBSMornings, and @NBC’s @TodayShow — ignored Biden’s multiple lies on the campaign trail yesterday. Inflation, Iraq, Beau Biden, claiming to have attended Delaware State — all of them,” expressed Curtis Houck, the managing editor of NewsBusters, via social media.

Biden’s campaigning appearances have been so disastrous that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) called a campaign stop for his opponent, Democrat Charlie Crist “an in-kind donation to my campaign” — and even put up the offer to pay Biden to continue with his campaigning in Florida.
“I think it’s an in-kind contribution to my campaign. I just want to make the offer publicly. We will underwrite him to stay in Florida for the rest of the campaign. If Joe wants to stay, it’ll be on our dime and we’d love for the people of Florida to be reminded that the Democrats in this state are with Biden 100% of the time,” concluded DeSantis.
