#BidenWorstPresidentEver Trends on Twitter

'You sir are an absolute disgrace and embarrassment to this country...'

The Twitter hashtag #BidenWorstPresidentEver started trending on Tuesday with tens of thousands of tweets using it, seemingly in response to an interview in which President Joe Biden compared George Floyd to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Biden even went as far to say in the interview Monday that George Floyd’s death was more consequential than the civil rights icon.

“Even Dr. King’s assassination did not have the worldwide impact that George Floyd’s death did,” Biden said.

Some have noted that in a practical sense, Biden is correct. While King’s death elicited nationwide race riots, there was not the same systemic response as followed Floyd’s, with much of it appearing to have been coordinated, if not pre-planned.

Businesses, schools and other institutions immediately implemented trainings in Critical Race Theory, while rioters were allowed in blue cities to loot and vandalize with impunity, even giving rise to a short-lived “defund the police” movement.

Cancel-culture consumed the entertainment and media industries, with any sort of pushback or criticism forming the justification for blacklisting.

Far from healing the wounds, Biden’s installment as president has done little but to exacerbate them on multiple levels as he seeks shamelessly to advance a radical and controversial agenda with no sort of voter mandate.

Despite the accuracy of his comment, Biden’s false equivalency of the revered civil-rights icon King and the recently-martyred crack-dealer Floyd offended many.

The tag trended for several hours and eventually transformed from criticism of Biden’s comments on MLK to broad disparagement of his administration, political career, intellectual level and personal character.

The Biden administration is coming off of a particularly rough week and a historically bad first year, with his approval rating currently sitting around in the low 30s, according to Gallup.

Polling also revealed that support for Democrats dropped precipitously last year while support for Republicans increased by the same amount—7% each way. Americans now say they prefer the GOP 47% to Democrats’ 42%.
