For some time, much of the media’s grudge against President Biden, despite his incredible performance on the job, has been due to the overall lack of access they’ve had to the White House over the last four years, especially compared to how many press conferences they got throughout the Trump years.

They also don’t have the same amount of ratings they had in the Trump years, because people aren’t worried every hour about being thrown into a war with Iran or nuclear standoff with North Korea, or stock market crashing every time the president tweets. That’s why despite the demand that President Biden do more media, it’s not actually that simple. He does campaigning and he does speeches, and all too often, networks refuse to cover it.

Over Super Bowl weekend, he revealed he can go on social media and get bigger numbers than any network carrying the traditional interview – and he took things a step further on Monday night making an unannounced appearance on Seth Meyers’ 10th anniversary late night show where he embraced his online “Dark Brandon” persona, but also delved into a pretty serious interview, proving for a sizable audience that he’s still mentally sharp and energetic and can give pretty thorough answers about his policies when pressed on it – while pushing back on not just the age of Donald Trump, but the age of his ideas – that could push the country 60 years back if he’s elected president.

After receiving a standing ovation as he came in, in just a few minutes, President Biden managed to demolish the myth the media’s spent the last two years trying to concoct. We know it hit well because Fox News pundits aired excerpts, demanding to know what was so funny about him putting his sunglasses on, or why he was talking about his accomplishments. Let’s have four more years of this and re-elect President Biden on Nov 5.
