Washington Post touts claim Biden inherited Cold War, Civil War, Great Depression, in addition to pandemic
Washington Post reporters touted a Democrat's framing of Joe Biden's presidency Friday as inheriting the Civil War, Cold War, and Great Depression all at once, in addition to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
,"In first full day in office, Biden faces multiple crises," former Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel told the Post,"Lincoln had the Civil War, Wilson had the pandemic, Roosevelt had the Depression, Kennedy had the height of the Cold War, and Johnson had unprecedented civil and social strife. Biden has D, all of the above."
Co-author Ashley Parker appeared to agree, tweeting,"Welcome to D -- Biden's all of the above presidency." Washington Post correspondent Philip Rucker also shared the quote, although neither noted that Emanuel should have said"F," as he had already listed five choices.

Harry Reid, D-Nev., that said Biden has to play"three-dimensional chess in an antigravity chamber with the pieces flying off the board." headtopics.com
However, the country is not going through a depression. While the economy has been rocked by the coronavirus and the on-agan, off-again shutdowns throughout the country, the unemployment rate has dropped from nearly 15 percent in April to 6.7 percent as of last month.
Emanuel's hyperbolic remarks about the Civil War also went unchecked, as the nation is not engaged in armed conflict. The Civil War from 1861 to 1865 killed more than 600,000 people and is the deadliest conflict in American history. In addition, while the country has tense relations with adversaries like China and Russia, the Cold War ended more than 30 years ago.

He added to the Post that the situation facing Biden"brings a different sense of urgency."

Blah , Blah , Blah , Blah ! touts... every claim to attempt to delegitimize Biden that they can muster/invent. (We won't forget that you propped up idiot Trump and that the FOX campaign of misinformation lead to the capitolinsurrection ) No, they are just events that happened in his life time. Idiots And it's true
The stock market is hitting all time highs, we have a vaccine for the virus, and we just had a peaceful transition of power. 🤦♂️🤦♂️ How is any of that wrong? Perhaps over the top by WP but basically sums up the scorched earth policy that the outgoing president adopted once he knew he had lost the election.
just like Dr. Fauci is saying we’ve hit a plateau in the virus all of a sudden since Biden took office and now the democratic cities want to open up everything get the fuck out of here! where is the flu? amazing there are zero cases of flu and all Covid!
