President Biden noted that 40 million people watched his video in which Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) endorsed him.
After knocking Republicans who voted against the Reduced Inflation Act for “realizing it’s pretty good all of a sudden, and they’re bragging about it,” President Biden touched on Ms. Greene for his discretion.
As you may have seen, Marjorie Taylor Greene, very conservative lady from Georgia, she said, ‘Biden does things like the Roosevelt’…I’ve never had support from him before,” the President said, while visiting the Philly Shipyard touting union workers building a new offshore windboat on Thursday.

The president referred to the Republic of Georgia grumbling about him while comparing him to FDR (a very popular and highly rated president).
In an ad, the Biden team uses Greene’s voice saying: “The largest public investment in social infrastructure and environmental programs that actually finishes what FDR started, which LBJ and Joe Biden expanded on trying to finish. Programs to address education, medical care, urban issues, rural issues, transportation, Medicare, Medicaid, unions, and he’s still working on them.”
These were all considered bad things by Ms. Greene.
While in Philadelphia, Biden spoke for more than 20 minutes to an audience composed of union members, interns, shipyard workers, company leaders, and members of Congress.
Biden was in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for a steel-cutting ceremony for what the White House said was “the first offshore windboat of its kind that is made in America and the Jones Act compliant, employing more than 1,000 workers across nine unions to build the ship, using plate steel made by United Steelworkers in Indiana, and generating an estimated $125 million of US economic activity each year.”
So, Biden addressed Bidenomics’ relationship to clean energy and climate policy (both opposed by the majority of Republicans).
The White House called the project “another example of how Bidenomics grows the economy from the mid-up and the bottom-up.”
Greene, for his part, spent yesterday sharing nude photos of President Biden’s private citizen son in an alleged IRS whistleblower hearing.
Meanwhile, the President was a lot of fun for Republicans, including Chairman McCarthy, during Wednesday’s White House Congressional picnic. Brian Karem reporting from the picnic, “Showing extraordinary caution at the POTUS Congressional picnic called @SpeakerMcCarthy his friend ‘even though it could damage his (McCarthy’s) reputation’ and while MTG showed lurid photos of his son during a congressional hearing this afternoon, Biden said, ‘You know, for all the disagreements we have, you have to remember in the end we are friends. That’s how it always is. You guys should be friends with each other. I mean, I think we’re getting there.’”
Of course it is a compliment for every president who cares about the people compared to FDR. And in terms of character, Biden shines even when his opponent does his worst for his family.
The President is also capable of being a world-class troll, as his video shows to the delight of his many supporters. 40.7 million views and counting.
