(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) The HBO television network is set to release a documentary on President Joe Biden’s first year in office three weeks prior to the midterm elections, in what appears to be an effort to rally support for the Democrats and give Biden’s image a much needed boost.
According to Breitbart, the documentary, titled Year One: A Political Odyssey, is being produced by New York Times White House and national security correspondent David Sanger.
Sanger is also featured as a guest on CNN on a consistent basis.
The documentary is set to debut on HBO on October 19 and will also be available to stream via HBO max.
The trailer for the documentary features Representative Adam Schiff, D-Cali, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and former White House press secretary Jen Psaki.
The film is being billed as a “rare glimpse into the inner working of the White House.”
The trailer works hard to portray the Biden administration as a purported clean up crew for former President Donald Trump, with the pandemic still going as he took office.
“Even in that moment of joy and renewal, people were still extremely conscious of the inheritance we had,” Blinken said in a voice over.
Year One covers many of Biden’s exploits, including the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
One moment of the trailer plays the situation off as a teachable moment, and implied that this administration “learned from its mistakes.”
“The Biden administration learned from the mistakes in Afghanistan,” said one commenter. “They responded by getting ahead of events instead of being behind them.”
That final comment goes unexplained, not making it clear when the Biden administration has ever gotten ahead of any situation.
The documentary also discusses the Russian invasion of Ukraine and China’s recent aggression.
Only 39% of registered voters approve of the president as midterms approach.
