Analysis: Biden's crisis presidency will only get harder as it passes the six-month markPresident Joe Biden said Tuesday the nation's vaccine push feels like a 'constant uphill climb.' He could have said the same of his entire crisis-tossed presidency as it grinds past the six-month mark. Don't call a crisis. Remember, the Trump presidency is behind us. I prefer to call it 'The Challenge Presidency of Joseph R Biden'. The crisis is the repercussions from the former guy, may take a couple years to get back to just “shitty” I KNOW RT AND HES PATTING HIMSELF ON THE BACK ALRDY FOOTBALL TEAMS AT THE W.H.AND BRAGGING ABOUT ECONOMY WHO ELSE DID THT AND HES ONLY HELPED FMLYS WTH KIDS NOT ALL AMERICANS AND HE DIDNT EVEN MENTION WEN HE WAS GONNA HELP THE REST NOT A CARE IN THE WRLD
